‘Below Deck Sailing Yacht’: Daisy Kelliher Referred to Chef Natasha as Cocky and Arrogant

Chief stew Daisy Kelliher from Below Deck Sailing Yacht teased that the tension emerging with chef Natasha De Bourg may be just the beginning.

Kelliher and De Bourg butted heads over when to serve breakfast to a group of guests who preferred to sail over having a formal breakfast during the first episode. Kelliher backed down to keep the peace, but she hinted that trouble was brewing. She appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen which was when host Andy Cohen presented her with a viewer question about the chef.

Daisy Kelliher spotted some ‘red flags’ with Chef Natasha

Cohen asked Keillher what are some “red flags” she can spot early on of a difficult chef. And did she get good first-vibes from De Bourg? “I think arrogance straight away is a bad sign in a chef,” she said during the WWHL After Show. “And cockiness. I think Natasha to an extent has displayed those pretty quickly on and yeah, I don’t think I was wrong.”

Captain Glenn Shephard, who was also a guest, said De Bourg’s food was delicious. Adding he thought she was “a little bit wild. Definitely self-confident. But I think she had a nice playful attitude.” Shephard said he doesn’t interact with the chef the same way as the chief stew. “So I see a different side of her.”

Kelliher had to scramble during the first episode when De Bourg insisted the guests have a sit-down breakfast when they wanted to sail. Although the interior managed to set the table and serve a formal breakfast, Shephard and the deck team managed to get the sails up extremely fast, which left Kelliher having to rush to stow items.

Chef Natasha also has trouble with authority, according to Daisy Kelliher

Kelliher had to rush to set the table but then, she had to rush just as fast to stow everything for a morning sail. Was she annoyed with Shepard for moving too quickly? “No, I was way more annoyed with Natasha,” she replied. “I was fuming with her. If I had my way we would have gone sailing an hour ago and given the guests what they wanted. So no, it wasn’t Glenn it was Natasha I was pissed with.”

Captain Lee Rosbach from Below Deck even weighed in on the scenario. Who was in the right, Kelliher or De Bourg? A fan asked Rosbach for his take on their conflict. “When ever the guests want it is when it’s served. Up to them,” he wrote on Twitter.


‘Below Deck Sailing Yacht’ Producer Dishes About ‘Miracle Season’

Shephard and Kelliher answered a speed round of questions on WWHL about the crew. Both leaned toward De Bourg as being the crew member who had the most trouble with authority. But beyond De Bourg, it appears that first mate Gary King may be a trouble maker this season. King’s name came up for causing the most crew drama.
