I was surprised to learn that I’d be Below Deck Sailing Yacht recap for part two of the reunion tonight instead of next Monday. I wonder why RHONY is not on this week? Personally, I am thrilled about the break from recapping that crap. 🙂 Let’s get to the one on one with Jean-Luc! It looks like Andy is going to break him down. Yay?
More On The Love Triangle
I’m bored already. Gary and Alli are arguing who was more invested in their relationship. Gary seems butthurt by the breakup. But didn’t we find out he had a girlfriend on shore the whole time? Now Sydney is crying. She says she is embarrassed about how she portrayed herself on TV. She said that she said and did things out of insecurity and jealous on the boat that do not reflect he true self. Oh Alli just now mentioned the longtime girlfriend Gary had. So the triangle was more of a rectangle.
Alli is really pissed at Sydney too after seeing all the things she said about her on the show. She has never apologized. All she talks about is how bad she looked on TV. Gary says he had not seen his girlfriend for eight months before boarding the boat. Sydney has a “partner” she has been with about five months. He’s a boat captain. Alli has a new boyfriend and they are moving in together. Oh, and she’s pregnant! Gary seems shocked. She is 20 weeks along. Gary and Alli were a couple on the crossing but things had to end when she went back to Australia. Alli still is on the outs with Sydney. Daisy is drunk.
Moving On To Dani & Jean-Luc’s Boatmance
They play all of the footage of Dani and Jean Luc’s make-outs and hookups and Dani can’t stand to watch it. Dani says that when he and Jean-Luc left the boat, they hung out together for a couple of days before going home. She claims she told him that their relationship would never work out because they live on two different continents and neither wants to move. Andy asks Dani if Jean-Luc is the father. She says, “Let’s put it this way, this baby was made while we were on the boat with cameras and she only slept with one guy.. so…” She says that Jean-Luc has not been supportive in anyway. He doesn’t believe the baby is his and he wants nothing to do with it.
Dani found out she was pregnant when she was in quarantine in Australia. She said at first he seemed to be supportive. Then, around December things just changed. On January first he sent a text telling her to not tell people he is the father. He wanted a DNA test. She said fine but he needs to pay for the test, because they are expensive and she already knows he is the father. He never followed through. Dani says that Jean-Luc’s mother made a really nasty remark on social media about her. So, she really doesn’t trust that family to have anything to do with her child. Someone posted on Jean-Luc’s Instagram that it was gross that he abandoned the mother of his child. And his mother responded that gross is a woman that uses a man because she is so desperate to be a mom. WOW.
Jean Luc Talks With Andy Five Days Later
Next, Allie talks about how strong Dani is and how disgusted she is by Jean-Luc. Dani works 12 hour shifts on her feet all day trying to prepare for the baby. Gary has contempt for Jean-Luc as well and calls him spineless. Gary says his dad abandoned him too and it’s very difficult. Glenn is one of the happiest people in the world. He’s always happy and smiling. The reunion ends there but the show continues with Jean-Luc in a one-on-one with Andy. Jean-Luc says he could not take an hour out of his day to chat with Andy because that was the primary’s daughter’s birthday and the most important day of the charter. Really, kid?
When Andy asks if he is the father of Dani’s baby he gets flustered. He says that asked for a paternity test and that upset Dani and led to conflict. Jean-Luc said he told her if he is the father he wants to be a part of her life every singe day. Well, he sure has missed a lot of days already. He says the people who say he wants nothing to do with his child really tears him up. He gets slightly emotional. I do not have a problem with him wanting a DNA test. My problem is he is not making an effort to get one!
Jean Luc Wanted To Be There For The Birth
This was taped before the baby was born. He claims he wants to be there for the birth. Wanting to do something and doing something are two different things. He says not being there for the birth is killing him. He should have already left for Australia because there is a 14 day quarantine at this time for everyone, even citizens entering the country. Next, Andy plays clips from the reunion about the baby. Jean-Luc gets super emotional and seems to be crying and not talking. Finally, he says he is at a loss for words. Jean-Luc says he made his mom take the nasty comment down. Jean-Luc says as soon as the child is born they will know the paternity. How? By looking at it?
Jean-Luc says he is not in touch with the crew because, “none of those people like me.” Andy asks if he has anything he would like to say after seeing the clip. Jean-Luc asks to see it again. He says it is worse the second time. He says that he hasn’t told Dani but he has thought about moving to Australia. He’s thought through all the possibilities. Jean-Luc says to Dani that everything they had on the boat is true. He wants to be there for Dani. He seems to really want to co-parent with Dani. It seems like he is still in love with her. That was pretty sad. Jean-Luc hasn’t posted anything on his Instagram since the posts I covered here.
