On Monday December 14th, the episode of Below Deck, Elizabeth Frankini found herself in hot water after causing a toxic laundry mistake. In an exclusive chat with E! News, the second stewardess refused to let the accident define her work ethic.
According to the Bravo personality, her mind was elsewhere as she struggled with the ongoing tension between herself and the chief stewardess Francesca Rubi.
“I was honestly distracted by … the way Francesca was answering me,” Elizabeth explained. “I was really starting to feel a lot of condescending hostility from her.”
As Elizabeth went on, she emphasized that she “used the bleach and the soap like [she has] done in [her] four and a half years of experience on boats. “
“Unfortunately, I didn’t know it was so toxic and I feel so bad about it,” she continued. “You know, I feel really bad, especially because Francesca said, ‘Take it outside.'”
While Elizabeth acknowledged that she was “disobeying” Francesca’s advice, she made it clear that it was not intended.
