“Real Housewives Of New York City” Cast Lands On A Yacht From Hell -
The dream of a luxurious yacht cruise turned into pure hell for Bethenny Frankel and company.
“Page Six” reports that the “RHNYC” ladies went to Columbia, where they thought a high class ship was waiting for them. Instead, they got a run-down boat that was so bad the anchor got stuck.
After getting underway, the engine caught fire and there were no extinguishers. Then the seas became so rough the yacht started taking on water. Oh, it was also a vomit fest for the ladies.
They were, thank goodness, rescued by a passing boat.
