White said Ferrier’s firing was an “unfortunate event” and didn’t end well for anyone
White was clear in her Conversation with Glanville that she couldn’t go into too many details, but called Ferrier’s firing an “unfortunate event for which everyone was worse”. She pointed out that the incident was not reported to the captain through “traditional” channels. The RHOBH alum told White she understood, and it sounded like White was implying the producers were involved in the situation:
When shows are on and not much is happening, sometimes producers produce and that’s okay. I’m not saying you’re saying that, but I think you’re saying that.
White simply replied, “I just have to say, I was absolutely horny for something that … like I was told, ‘Malia is against mental health,’ ‘Malia is a snitch,’ and I was like ‘fuck it all’ that’s when.” I wouldn’t be against mental health. She concluded, “There is a way to do things and there is a right way to do things.”
Glanville shared that following her stint on reality TV, she learned “not to trust producers,” to which White replied, “Yes.” Glanville explained, “They make you feel like they’re your best friend … and then they’re like, ‘Okay, you’re going to be the bad guy this season.'”
White told the podcast host, “I wouldn’t say that, I love my producer, I’m just saying how I learned it, like I was kind of stupid thinking that private messages I send wouldn’t end up on camera , but you acted like my message had become a story,” referring to the photo of Hannah’s bag with the Valium next to it.
White said she was taking a year off from the show
In the same podcast interview, White confirmed to Glanville that she would be taking a year off the show to focus on her career in the yachting industry. She said she hopes to get her officer’s license and recently started her own podcast, Total Ship Show.
When she started her podcast, she said it’s important to show her life and the industry outside of Below Deck. White pointed this out Showbiz Cheat Sheet that she’s a full-time yachtie and wanted to show fans all the different aspects of sailing that aren’t featured on the Bravo show.
