Below Deck Sailing Yacht‘s Daisy Kelliher revealed Erica Rose’s mother Cindi dragged her and Captain Glenn Shephard so brutally on social media, she was brought to tears when she planned to return this season.
Despite being put through their paces, Daisy said Erica and her mother remained friendly with the crew after last season. But a shocking message Cindi posted about her and Glenn changed everything.
Cindi slammed Daisy and Captain Glenn on social media
Erica blasted Daisy after their first Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 3 episode aired, calling her two-faced. While Daisy observed that Erica and her friends weren’t particularly nice to one another last season, she didn’t have any issue with her. “I didn’t have an issue with them directly until I saw things written about me mainly from Cindi, and I had also heard about things said about me on a podcast that Erica did,” Daisy shared on her Pita Party Instagram.
Daisy shared the message Cindi posted about her. “All the crew worked hard, except for Captain Glenn and Daisy, who I think were there to create fake rocking ships and try to pretend he, she yacht royalty were working,” Daisy read. “Daisy ordered people around, but I never saw her do any work.”
Cindi demanded an apology and added, “Daisy told us to ask you to our female empowerment dinner. We really had nothing in common with you. I doubt you like art, literature, family, medicine, law. Even culinary skills – she’s talking about Glenn,” Daisy continued to read. “What would we talk about? That you were an older, confirmed bachelor who likes to be alone? It was rude of you to refuse our good manners. You are 50 something and should know manners by now. To ask people to pay over $25,000 per person and tell them it’s a luxury trip and show us activities and complain about us behind our backs is so immature and then expect tips that we generously did. At least we have manners.”
Cindi lied and slandered them
Daisy said this message infuriated her. “So when I saw this, it got my f***ing blood boiling,” she said. “Because it’s lies, it’s slander. It’s insane. And I didn’t retaliate. I didn’t say anything. I didn’t do anything.” Adding, “And then obviously I find out that they were coming back on.”
“As far as I was concerned, I had to serve and put a smile on my face to people that I think are complete bullies,” Daisy continued. “They are everything that I hate about social media. I hate liars, I hate fabricators. I hate people who use social media as a platform to spread gossip. And they’re everything of what I think represents is awful in the world and awful about social media.”
“So that is why I was upset about them coming. Not because of their behavior on the boat last year, but because of what they specifically wrote about me on social media,” she added. “And yes, I did cry. I was very upset and obviously, everybody can see why. Because they’re awful, awful people.”
As far as Glenn was concerned, he wasn’t thrilled that Erica and Cindi planned to return to Below Deck Sailing Yacht. “Well, Glenn, yeah, I don’t think he was pretty happy about them coming back. But yeah, he was just like, whatever Daisy, they’re crazy. Don’t let it get to you,” Daisy said.
Someone from the ‘Below Deck’ charter group left after they were kicked off the plane
Daisy also shared what she learned about the Below Deck guests’ arrival, which included getting booted off of their flight. She talked to production and Erica about the incident. “What happened was I think Chuck and Erica upgraded themselves to first class. I don’t think Cindi was happy about this and told herself as entitled as she very much obviously thinks she is. I think she kept going up to first class, which is like a no-go,” Daisy recounted.
“And I think she kept going up there. And at one stage, Chuck was asleep and Cindi wanted his omelet and came up and took his omelet,” she continued. Daisy doesn’t think they were kicked off the flight because they were being anti-maskers but the flight attendant was frustrated with Cindi.
“And I think Chuck woke up and was extremely drunk. I think the two of them were very rude, very hostile, and I would imagine quite aggressive. So yes, it was about an omelet, but it was their demeanor and maybe a threat that they felt.” They were removed from the flight and Daisy said the abuse continued in the airport.
Daisy added, “One of their friends at this stage had decided to leave and not come on the charter” because of Cindi, Erica, and Chuck’s over-the-top behavior.
