  1. I get what you’re saying. And it’s true she’s a licensed captain regardless of her employment status. But believe it or not, becoming licensed only requires something like 360 hours of on-water working experience (whether as a stew, deckhand, first mate, or whatever), some references, an 11-day class, a written exam, and a background check and drug test. That’s for a large tonnage, inspected commercial boat captain’s license through the US Coast Guard. Not saying that all that isn’t damn hard, and I’m sure getting a job as a female captain (co- or not) in the Alaskan fishing industry makes it extra challenging. But Rhylee is 33 years old. Good that she has an achievement like that under her belt, but by that age, lots of hardworking people do. Which is why I wish she’d just shut up about it. And why I feel for anyone who has to work with someone as insufferable as she is. Edited to add: If I sound dismissive about all this, it’s mainly because I can’t stand Rhylee and my bias is showing. :)
  2. In a very early episode, Rhylee said she “co-captains” a boat in Alaska. Though we never heard her say it that way again (instead, it’s been, “I’m a captain”), I’ve not stopped wondering about the poor soul cursed with being her co-captain. If that person dares to watch this season, he or she must be rocking themselves in the fetal position to soothe the inevitable ptsd.
  3. Brent the camera guy pulled the black stern line off the cleat on the swim platform, thereby allowing the whole thing to loosen - and Ashton to come to the surface. What I can’t understand is why Capt. Rhylee didn’t think to do that herself.
  4. So, it appears that the white tow line from the tender (which was taut) was attached to the black stern line (which still had some slack as it sat coiled in the swim platform). When Ashton’s foot got caught in the lines, it was the taut tow line that pulled him in - and the loose stern line followed. Hope that made sense. Edited to add: This was all while the yacht was moving forward, away from the tender, to begin towing it. Also, fuck Laura and her “cutting corners” comment. There’s nothing about towing a tender that would be considered cutting corners. She and her misinformed criticisms can go anytime.
  5. Rats! I should have known it was a Family Guy reference!! But yeah, I agree it still doesn’t apply to her grievance du jour.
  6. Based on recent comments in her Twitter feed, enough people reported some of her tweets (she was getting all weird about 9/11, for example) and Twitter briefly suspended her account. Now that it’s back up, she’s back to the same nonsense (Chrissy Teigen is an enemy now, etc.).
  7. I’ve never come across this before when clicking on a Twitter profile. Wasn’t the case just last night, but this morning apparently Caroline’s account is “temporarily restricted” due to unusual activity. You can still click through, but this is just weird.
  8. This sheds a teeny bit more light on Dennis’s marital situation. Also, “Denny Shields” - very cool! https://nypost.com/2018/08/10/dennis-shields-wife-speaks-out-he-was-the-love-of-my-life/
  9. I’ve been thinking about this statement from his wife. She is clearly hurting too. I can’t even imagine what it will be like for her and Bethenny both to get through this grieving process, knowing the other exists. This is sad on so many levels.
  10. It’s a tragedy if Bethenny didn’t know about Dennis’s alleged addiction, and this news came to her as a sudden shock. I certainly wouldn’t blame her for his ability to hide it. And it’s a tragedy if she did know, and wasn’t able to prevent his death. I wouldn’t blame her for that, either. Guess I’m saying, does it really matter whether she knew or not? Either way, Dennis has died, Bethenny is probably devastated, and I don’t feel like picking her apart right now. Not for this.
  11. Also, his byline on his relatively new Twitter account says “[orange emoji] you glad I got a Twitter?”
  12. I think the dummy actually said “disingenuine.” In Bachelorland that gets you extra credit!
  13. Thank you, @HunterHunted. Glad to hear it. But this whole concept of him becoming a “lawyer for hire”, where “it's kind of got to be a specialty firm where I can come in and close stuff off for people that can't do it themselves”, does sound a bit rich coming from a guy who can’t finish a pillow-stuffing project. But I do wish him well.
  14. I think I took a little too much pleasure in learning that Craig hasn’t been sworn in yet because he still hasn’t passed the character and fitness check. That’s a big deal. All that law school, all those loans, all that claiming he graduated and applied for the bar, all that pressure to come clean and actually graduate and sit for the bar, all that work to pass the bar...imagine if the Supreme Court of the State of South Carolina then says, “Nope. You’re a lying liar who lies and will not become an officer of this Court.”
  15. Did Luanne seriously brag that she works with her musical director Billy Stritch, who worked with Liza Minelli and...Che Guevara? Che Guevara??
