Captain Lee From ‘Below Deck’ Shares the Hilarious Reason Why He Missed an Impromptu John Legend Concert (Exclusive)
Most Bravo fans have now seen the Hulu commercial that features a slew of Bravolebrities. The commercial was shot at musician John Legend and wife Chrissy Teigen’s home and features Kyle Richards from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Melissa Gorga from The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and Jax Taylor from Vanderpump Rules.
The spot also includes Patricia Altschul and her butler Michael Kelcourse from Southern Charm. Taylor is mistaken for a bartender in the ad and then Captain Lee Rosbach from Below Deck is mixed up with Kelcourse. Rosbach is wearing his white captain’s uniform, which looks a little like the white coat Kelcourse wears. “I see you brought your own butler too,” Altschul hilariously says to chief stew Kate Chastain about Rosbach.
Later, Kelcourse and Rosbach sit down as Rosbach says, “I am not a freaking butler,” in an extremely exasperated tone. The guys laugh and the ad ends.
Recently, at a Stars Marketing Group event in South Florida, Rosbach shared what it was like to shoot the commercial and the reason he missed out on an impromptu concert by Legend.
Taylor and Rosbach kissed and made up
The audience wanted to know if Rosbach and Taylor finally put their feud behind them. Taylor blocked Rosbach on Twitter, but the men worked out their differences.
“Jax is just kind of easy,” Rosbach shared. “His buttons are easy to push. And it doesn’t take a lot before he hits the ‘block’ button.” Host Colin Macy-O’Toole from Below Deck Mediterranean shared that Rosbach and Taylor faced off on Watch What Happens Live during BravoCon where they “Squashed Their Beef.”
Rosbach then told the South Florida audience he had an interesting story about Taylor when they filmed the Hulu commercial. “So we’re at Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s house, and we’re filming this commercial,” he recalled. “And you’ve got the Housewives there. I’ve got Pat Altschul and Kate’s there with me. And Chrissy’s there and her mom.”
“So the directors come and get me and they go like, ‘You’ve got to film this scene.’ I just met John,” Rosbach continued. “And got a couple of pictures taken and stuff, and then they go, ‘You got to go do this thing.'”
The ‘thing’ made him miss the Legend performance
Rosbach complied and left upon the directors’ request. “So I get up and guess who it’s with,” Rosbach said. “Jax.” The audience laughed. “Jesus Christ,” Rosbach said. “So we go into this other room when we’re doing this scene, and we come out 20 minutes later and Kate comes out and says, ‘God you missed it!'”
He wanted to know what he just missed. “She said, ‘John just sat down at the piano and banged out a couple of tunes,” Rosbach said. The audience groaned.
“I’m sitting with Jax Taylor and John Legend sat down at the piano and banged out a couple of tunes? How did I get pimped like that?” The audience was melting with laughter. “There’s something wrong with this picture,” he continued.
