Below Deck’s Captain Sandy Yawn opened up about firing Stew Camille Lamb. The recent interview with the E-News Deck unveiled a lot of facts about the ongoing drama. Camille was warned multiple times for her behavior. And later on after a heated argument with fellow Stew Alissa Humber, Chief Stew Fraser Olender suggested Yawn fire her and she did it.
Below Deck’s Captain Sandy Yawn, she stands by her decision
In her recent interview with the E-news Yawn said she stands by her decision. “I stand by it. First and foremost, I don’t fire people unless I have the facts, and, secondly, I don’t fire people out of favoritism or non-favoritism. I fire people because if they’re the one singular thing where everything else is evolving around them, that’s the problem I have to eliminate.”
Later on, she added, “Sometimes people just walk through life and think what they’re doing is OK just because they’ve never been properly taught you. I was that person until someone showed me, but I had to be willing to listen and to remain teachable.”
Moreover, Sandy talked about her current situation with Camille.
“I did a fundraiser for the maritime industry and she showed up. A lot of Below Deck people showed up that I didn’t even invite and I thought that’s pretty awesome because they love the maritime industry.”- She revealed.
She added, “When I’m a captain I’m not there to make friends, I’m there to do my job. Firing people is never fun, but I try to do it in a gentle way. It doesn’t mean we’ve ended a working relationship. I’m not friends with Camille, we’re not buddies. She showed up, I love the support and it’s like another colleague in the industry. So good terms? I don’t look at good terms. I have to say I’m very neutral when it comes to the crew.”
