Second stew Laura Bileskalne was also fired due to her reaction to the incident, per PEOPLE. HollywoodLife has reached out to Bravo for comment.
“Last night there were boundaries crossed,” Captain Jason said during the episode, as he confronted Luke and fired him from The Northern Sun. “There was indecency, and you went into someone’s else cabin without consent.” “Like I was naked?” Luke asked. “Yeah,” Captain Jason said before adding, “Unfortunately I’ve got nothing else but to terminate your employment.”
“I accept that,” Luke replied. “I’m sorry, and I’m just so disappointed in my myself.”
