However, Suarez described how she received a request to watch over King when he became drunk. And so she stayed in his hotel room. But when she tried to leave, he attempted to halt her. And King allegedly pressed himself against Suarez.
However, Samantha shared that she told producers. And King received a request to sleep on the boat rather than the hotel. Bravo then reacted, stating that the network remains “committed to maintaining a safe and respectful workplace for cast and crew on our reality shows. We require our third-party production companies to have appropriate workplace policies and trainings in place and a clear process on how to report concerns. The concerns Ms. Suarez raised in July 2022 were investigated at that time and action was taken based on the findings.”
And Below Deck’s production company 51 Minds Entertainment shared their goal of “providing an environment in which every member of the casts and crews on our productions feel respected and, most importantly, safe. 51 Minds provides mandatory harassment and sensitivity training for every series it produces at the outset of each new season and lays out a clear process on how and to whom to report any questionable activity,” stated a spokesperson.
