Juicy Crack goes Below Deck with Courtney Veale - life aboard a £150m super yacht!

By Made in Pieces


This is Denise unedited, candid and unfiltered, speaking about her life, family, friends, career and mental health. The 'real Denise Welch', having guested on countless other podcasts, now has her own show - a podcast that's about... well... it's not really 'about' anything! Denise shares her opinions, life events and mental health journey in a no-holds-barred debut season.

Discussed this week...

Denise's obsession with 'everything Bravo' television - today's episode is an excuse to gossip more about it! For those who don't watch reality TV shows, Below Deck, or Bravo... tough! Courtney Veale is Denise's very first Juicy Crack guest (apart from Lincoln of course, who is always upset when he's not on it). Denise and Courtney discuss life aboard a £150m private yacht, and partying at the Formula 1 race event in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Courtney's journey from growing up, becoming a junior stew on her first yacht job, to becoming a reality TV star. Dealing with celebrity status at BravoCon, where the Real Housewives of Miami, Vanderpump Rules and Below Deck attract legions of fans. Dealing with private guests who can occasionally behave like "the arseholes of the world". Getting to know 'Tequila Courtney' - partying, dancing and twerking her way through the yachting scene. Talking about the rules around crew members shagging with paying guests - "there are a lot of no-nos in yachting that still happen!". Courtney's feeling of imposter syndrome when working on a new reality show, mirrored by Denise's feeling of loneliness when she joined Coronation St. Courtney discusses her dad's Alzheimer's diagnosis, and how it affected not just her life, but that of her whole family. The ups and downs of being a people pleaser, and managing other peoples' expectations at the risk of your own - learning to be more forthright, and how to say no!
