Hannah Ferrier has taken to Twitter to defend herself after she was accused of having drugs in her cabin on Monday’s episode of Below Deck Mediterranean.
The 33-year-old reality TV star – who also revealed on Monday she is expecting a baby girl with Australian boyfriend Jay – was confronted by Captain Sandy Yawn for having Valium and a weed pen in her cabin after bosun Malia White told on her. Malia had even taken a photo of the items that she allegedly found in the star’s purse.
‘So that’s prescribed Valium, CBD (which is legal in Spain), a lighter (not sure what this has to do with anything) and my passport holder… And for anyone who’s interested the prescription is on the other side of the box as shown,’ said Hannah as she live tweeted the show.
In another tweet, she said all of the items are fine to have, saying it was ‘prescribed medication and legal CBD.’
The drama could be seen unfolding on Monday’s episode of BDM when 30-year-old White went to Yawn to tattle on Ferrier, who serves as the yacht’s chief stewardess.
White said Ferrier had Valium and a weed pen on the yacht, which is against the rules.
There was also a photo of the Valium bottle and what looks to be a weed pen as well as a lighter and a passport.
When Yawn asked Ferrier what the drugs were about, the episode ended with a promise for more in the next installment.
The drama continued just after the show on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
White was on the late night show and said she had seen Ferrier take Valium in the past adding she had issues with anxiety.
‘I think in that moment when she asked for Valium is when it really hit me that those were the pills that she was taking every night all season,’ said White. ‘That’s when it became a real serious thing for me.’
Cohen asked if this was White’s way of getting back at Ferrier after they had an argument about the sleeping arrangements on the ship.
‘I already had my bunk at that point, so, yeah, it was because it was my duty to. I don’t want to lose my licensing,’ she maintained. ‘It’s not legal to take Valium on a yacht unsupervised, whether you have a prescription or not. Hannah knows that what she was doing was wrong. She knows that it’s against the rules.’
When Ferrier was live tweeting the show, she made it clear that White went into her cabin and looked through her handbag for the medication and CBD after they had a fight, making it sound like payback.
Ferrier announced in June that the fifth season of Below Deck Mediterranean will be her last.
‘I think I’m probably done,’ she told Entertainment Tonight. ‘I learned when I first started yachting in my very early 20s, you know, I would see these women who were in their late 30s, 40s, sitting at a bar, getting wasted with 20-year-olds living in a tiny cabin, and I was like, “I don’t want [that].”‘
Below Deck Mediterranean airs Mondays on Bravo at 9 pm ET.
Also on Monday there was some happy news. Hannah took to Instagram to tell her 460K followers that she is expecting a baby girl with her beau.
The star wore a black mini dress that showed off her baby bump as she threw out pink rose petals while standing against a brick wall.
‘It’s a…GIRL,’ she said in her caption. She is due in October.
She went public with her pregnancy on June 8, posting a picture of herself cradling her bump against a background of greenery.
A couple of days later she wrote on her Instagram: ‘Hi guys!!! I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for all the warm wishes, comments and direct messages.I am 5 months pregnant and due late October and literally keep bursting into tears sporadically from happiness!!!’
She gushed: ‘It’s something I have wanted since I was a little girl and I really feel like all my dreams are coming true at once. Thank you guys so much for the love and support. Below Deck Med has been an amazing journey for me and I got so much out of it – including all of you guys!! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.’
Her romance with Josh went public a week before her pregnancy did, when she was seen discussing him on the season five premiere of Below Deck Mediterranean.
Hannah said on the episode that she met Josh in Australia and shared that ‘this is definitely the first relationship that I actually see some longevity and potentially getting married and making babies and having a family.’
She has also said in a Bravo Insider interview: ‘He’s very private, he hates social media, so, that’s definitely something that I respect. It’s probably for the best.’
Hannah added: ‘Like, I don’t think I could date someone that was fascinated with their Instagram and taking selfies and stuff. He’s just very low-key.’
