'Below Deck': Hannah hurls abuses at Lara and threatens to punch her for not following instructions
'Below Deck Mediterranean' is wasting no time in setting the stage for some drama. Cast members are already lashing out at one another, especially Hannah Ferrier and Lara Flumiani. They got off to a rough start and it looks like the friction is here to stay. Mid-way into the first charter, Hannah informs Lara that she would like to be acknowledged from time to time so that she is aware that Lara has received the information given to her — just a simple "okay" will do the job. However, Lara didn't budge, which cost her a shift in duties and timings.
She was put on breakfast service and later in the laundry while third stewardess Jessica More was given the responsibility to attend to charter guests. Hannah inquired about Lara's performance and both Jessica and Hindrigo "Kiko" Lorran complained and said she wasn't easy to work with.
Lara has years of yachting experience behind her and been a chief stewardess earlier. Therefore, for her to report to someone would be a challenge. However, if she could let that aspect slide and follow instructions instead, her time on The Wellington will be smoother and easier.
But it's not going to be that easy. Hours into the day, Hannah and Lara get into a major showdown during which the former tried to shuffle her duties one more time but she wasn't willing to comply. "We collaborate otherwise it doesn't work," Lara told Hannah and nudged her gently so she could move. Lara's actions and words made Hannah livid, she said: "Lady, don't touch me," and continued: "I am going to f***ing punch that b***h in a minute."
Hannah has a lot on her shoulder and to lose one's calm in a pressure situation is only natural. However, it would do her a world of good if she tried to ignore Lara's slip-ups and give her opportunities, using which she can shine. Maybe, they need to have an open conversation about their work equation. Catch all the episodes of 'Below Deck Mediterranean' on Bravo every Monday.
