Kate Chastain has decided to share everything about her extraordinary life at sea!
The 33 year old, Chastain, wrote about her first experience at Shell Beach in her memoir, Lucky Charming. She said that she was an “unnecessary slave” among Hollywood’s elite and talked about everyone she met while serving on the ship.
“I instinctively began scanning the area for recognizable famous faces when I was nearly tackled by a man in a midair Frisbee couch: ‘Sorry about that! Rogue Frisbee!’ he politely said before running off to throw the neon green disc back to his beach buddy. Did Owen Wilson really just bump into me?”
Furthermore, she recalls docking beside a flashy Saint Tropez yacht once, writing: “It was much different than all the other shin white mega yachts crammed into the tiny marina. It was painted a shimmering deep purple that changed into an emerald green when you looked at it from a different angle. It kind of reminded me of a huge bumper car. The cushions on the funky yacht’s aft deck were upholstered in various animal prints, and the name on the stern was a familiar looking gold crest. It took me awhile to realize it was Roberto Cavalli’s yacht, which people meant the Speedo-sporting tan older man walking around was RC himself. For a clothing designer, you’d think he wear something with a little more fabric.”
She was asked to manage her boss’ yacht party at one time and she described the whole event as a gathering between the rich and famous, focusing on the behavior of a particular guest – Kid Rock.
“I spotted Kid Rock sitting on the deck settee by the Jacuzzi. He had not one, but two dates with him […] With bleached hair, spray tans, fake boobs, and acrylic nails, the women looked like they had been made in the same factory. He had two Lap Dance Barbies, clothes seemingly sold separately.”
She explained that her boss has asked her to make sure the guests were not smoking and when Kid Rock tried to light up a cigarette she was too nervous to approach him and so her co-worker did instead. “I was sure he was about to stand up and scream, My name is Kid Rock, while his buxom dates performed an impromptu striptease behind him, just like in all his music videos. But he didn’t. He just smiled and snubbed his cigar out on the empty appetizer plate in front of him.”
