So who was really to blame for that Sailing yacht below deck “Coffee gate?” Chief Stew Daisy Kelliher said first officer Gary King’s struggle with her deckhand Kelsie Goglia, who was getting coffee for the guest, was unwarranted. and he struck because he was stressed because he was a deckhand.
Kelliher and King got into a fight towards the end of the last one Sailing yacht below deck Episode when some of Goglia’s duties on deck were not being completed and she was the only crew member working at the time. A guest got up earlier than Stew Gabriela Barragan’s layer and asked Goglia for coffee. While she was fetching coffee for the guest, King came on deck and noticed that many of the night’s tasks were unfinished.
Kelsie was slow at work on Below Deck, Daisy said
Kelliher said King’s attack on her was unfounded. “He was mad at the night jobs and I’m sorry but it’s Gary’s way of blaming me,” Kelliher said on her Instagram pita party. “I felt like it happened last season. I felt like it happened this season. And I think to be honest I love Kelsie, she was like one of my favorite crew members.”
“But I think it was Kelsie’s fault,” added Kelliher. “Kelsie was slow. It was an ongoing topic. She knows and we’ve talked about it. But she didn’t have the urgency that superyachting requires. She got better as the season progressed, but it was a problem. And the problem was, Kelsie was slow at work.”
Gary argued with Daisy instead of talking to Kelsie in Below Deck
Rather than address the speed on deck, King got into a fight with Kelliheron Under deck. “I think sometimes Gary avoids conflict like I do,” she admitted. “And I think instead of sitting Kelsie down and talking to her, it was easy to blame me. It was easy to make it my problem. But no, the deck crew is 100% more than capable of making a coffee. It is just as much their job to look after the guests there as ours.”
“Often I would help wash the boat down,” added Kelliher. “I helped carry their little dinghies around. I watched when they needed to go to the bathroom and I helped out with paddleboards. You know, I’ve done all the things that deckhands do, and We are a team. Kelsie should make some coffee, and when she feels like she’s not doing her job, knock on my door and say, ‘Yo, Daisy, there are some guests. I’m a bit busy, do you mind?’ I would have liked to get up and help.”
Below Deck producers wanted to call the moment Coffee Gate
Kelliher joked about the coffee argument earlier this season while chatting with Alli Dore on Instagram Live.
“We just wanted to do a good job and we’re crashing a lot of heads this season,” she said. “We saw each other at Disneyland, We went to Disneyland together.”
“And we were arguing about something that happened during the show,” she laughed. “We got into a full blown fight in the studio. I thought I can’t believe this is happening. As before everyone. And I was like, I can’t believe this is happening to the damn coffee that happened during the show.”
She added that producers referred to the fight as Coffee Gate, “Coffeegate,” Kelliher joked. “It will be in season. I thought you didn’t call it Coffee Gate. They say yes we are.”
