moving the boat about! When discussing Captain Sandy’s earlier remarks about Malia White’s sexuality during the Below Deck Mediterranean reunion on Monday, October 18, Malia White didn’t hold back.
The Greatest Drama in Mediterranean History: Below Deck
Andy Cohen, the host, questioned Sandy, 56, on her September 2020 Cameo video in which she seemed to imply that Malia, 31, was “secretly gay.” The Florida native responded with a light-hearted jab when the Most Talkative author, 53, inquired about the “strange” viral incident that happened before Malia went public with her boyfriend Jake Baker.
I’m not a lesbian, surprise! As the cast virtually reunited, Malia teased.
Before the season’s filming had started, Sandy released a cameo in which she asserted that “everyone in production” shared her opinion regarding Malia’s tastes. The co-stars admitted on Monday that they made up before the cameras started rolling.
Naturally, we figured it out, the yacht skipper said. “That was taken out of context and manipulated. You are aware of how easily people may twist the truth. I’m fine, and Malia is too.
The bosun said, “It wasn’t [awkward] at all. I don’t really care if they think I’m straight or a lesbian. I’ll enjoy myself anyhow.
Sandy apologized on her Instagram Story shortly after the video started trending on social media, saying that it had been “sliced to make it into something it was not.” In an exclusive interview with Us Weekly earlier this month, Sandy discussed the fallout from her error and said that the video she shot “wasn’t meant for the public” to hear.
It was just a joke, she said. “Malia and I spoke right away. She realized right away. I was sorry. she watched the actual video. She will be an excellent captain because of this. She understands the truth, you know?
Sandy told Us that, despite her claim that the scene was “edited” in a particular way, “some things could have been handled differently.”
Malia said she didn’t take the remarks personally when she spoke with Us in July. “I believe that Captain Sandy never intends to hurt someone, which is something I know to be true. She never intends to be disrespectful or cruel, she remarked at the time. “I think she kind of said, ‘Well, I was just kidding,’ when that kind of hit the fan, and she didn’t realize the repercussions it would have for me and with my family and friends. She did, however, apologize, to which I replied, “It’s not a big deal.” It was simply not something I required.
Malia made her romantic debut with “hot engineer Jake,” who also appeared on season 6 of Below Deck Mediterranean, in the midst of the drama. Malia revealed how the relationship developed after posting a PDA photo of the couple on Instagram in August.
Jake is very reserved, so I didn’t really get to know him until the very end of the season. He was very much in the background, she said at the reunion on Monday.
When Cohen questioned Sandy about her reaction to the relationship rumors, she responded, “That’s Malia’s and Jake’s business. Like, it has nothing to do with me. She and he are both adults, after all.
