“I feel painted like a kind of drug addict.”
Hannah Ferrier shares her surprise on Monday̵
7;s Below Deck Mediterranean episode.
The reality star was fired from the Wellington crew by Captain Sandy Yawn after Valium and a CBD vape pen were found in her belongings.
“I’m just really upset,” Ferrier told Decider. “I think especially watching how it played out. Obviously it’s very confrontational right now. It’s very shocking. I think especially when I just say things like, ‘Is she flushing the drugs?'”
“I guess why should I flush my meds? But it wouldn’t have crossed my mind to flush Valium because I don’t think I’m doing anything wrong. It’s an anxiety medication. It’s five milligrams of Valium. It was.” just disappointing. “
She said she felt “painted like some kind of drug addict”.
“Which is just so sad because there are so many people in the world who suffer from mental illness,” Ferrier continued. “And it’s 2020. We shouldn’t make people feel less like drugs for mental illness.”
Although her CBD vape pen was also used to fight anxiety, Ferrier said she would have handled the situation differently if she had the opportunity to do it all over again.
“Of course I would have declared the drug when I went on board,” she explained. “If I had known it would end like this, I probably would not have made it through the season.”
Regarding co-star Malia White, who reported the drugs to Yawn by taking a picture of them, Ferrier said she thought the move was in retaliation for an argument the couple had over room assignments.
“She went to my cabin after we argued over cabin arrangements,” Ferrier claimed. “Then I went through my purse and took a picture of my prescribed medication and legal CBD and mailed it to Sandy.”
When Ferrier heard from Yawn after the end of the season, he said the captain had heard the news of Ferrier’s pregnancy.
“It was very much, ‘Oh, can I get your address? I want to send something for the baby,'” Ferrier told ET. “If you don’t send me my career back, I’m really not interested.”
