Things seem to be heating up on Bravo’s Below Deck, with cast members Elizabeth Frankini and Ashling Lorger going at it over social media following last night’s episode and Elizabeth’s appearance on Watch What Happens Live.
While the two seemed to have gotten along for most of the current season, things took a turn with Ashling’s appearance on WWHL after last week’s episode, where she called Elizabeth a “lost cause” and said that she didn’t have a backbone. Elizabeth, for her part, was asked about that interaction on her appearance on the Bravo talk show last night and shared that Ashling’s comments have deeply upset her.
“Hearing that, it was actually very hurtful because the whole time on the boat, I thought we were friends and good co-workers,” she said. “She never expressed any of this to me and now watching the episode, I had no idea she was this fake.”
She continued, “It was definitely hurtful and I wish that behaviour and words had been said to me at the time.”
Elizabeth took things a step further, sharing the clip to her Instagram and tagging Ashling while using some pretty cryptic hashtags to caption the video, implying that the two will have things to discuss at the upcoming Below Deck reunion.

She also addressed Ashling on Twitter, sharing a screenshot of their Instagram direct messages.
“Can anyone suggest a hobby for @ashlinglorger to help keep her out of my DMs?” she captioned the post alongside the #BelowDeck hashtag.
All of the drama seemed to capture Ashling’s attention but if her reply is any indication, she doesn’t seem too phased by Elizabeth’s comments.
“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never break me,” she responded.
While most of the drama seems to have entered on Chef Rachel Hargrove this season, it looks like we may be in for a bit of a turn as we head towards the end of the season.
Below Deck airs Mondays on Bravo.
