This is what the Below Deck Mediterranean captain told Us Weekly about her reasoning with regard to the firing of chief stew Hannah Ferrier, explaining that when a crew member shows her something and the rest of the crew “copies” it – her hands are tied.
She said this while explaining that Hannah was still not talking to her and, apparently, still angry at her over the ejection.

Sandy went on to say that Hannah “has got her dream. She’s living her dream” referencing Hannah’s new baby girl, Ava, born in October of 2020.
The reality TV captain went on to describe the consternation she had over the firing but ultimately said “I wish her the best.”
Hannah has previously revealed to Us Weekly that Sandy had attempted to reach out to her after she announced her pregnancy.

The former chief stew said that Sandy had wanted an address so that she could send Hannah a gift and Hannah never responded.

She said that others had prescription meds in the past and didn’t get fired for them.
“The wasn’t a need to fire me for that. It was a hundred percent personal.”
It was clear that Hannah wasn’t looking to reconcile with her former captain it seemed that she wasn’t averse to hashing these issues out with Sandy.
