Shit got real on a haunted ship for us basic bitches

rachaels birthday at the queen mary

On this episode of Straight Up With Stassi, our girl is joined by BFF Rachael O’Brien again, this time to chat about their ~paranormal~ experiences on the famously haunted Queen Mary.

“Let’s talk about the Queen Mary,” Stassi says.

“Shall we?” Rachael asks.

“So, we encountered a demon,” Stassi dives in, and then rewinds a bit. “Back story: Rachael’s birthday. Like I said, Rachael and I have always wanted to go to the Queen Mary. We got three suites. And these suites are old as fuck.”

“Normal cruises look like Vegas-y, Disneyland whatever,” Rachael says. “This boat was old-school, Titanic looking, with the old wood… It was the exact same that it was back in the day.”

“The layout was legitimately what it looked like in Titanic,” Stassi describes. “The suites are little apartments. Rachael and I were the first ones to get there, obviously, and we walked in and were like… are we sharing this with other people?”

“It confused me because there were two numbers on the door,” Rachael says.

“You walk through one door to get to a bunch of other doors, then there’s a separate room that are the servants quarters,” Stassi describes. “It didn’t make any sense. It’s so old school.”

“And there’s no decor,” Rachael says. “There’s not a picture on the wall. The wood and the furniture were old and beautiful, but there was nothing on them. It almost look like it was just raided. There was just a bed that had nice bedding and curtains, but there was nothing else in the place.”

“But I loved it,” Stassi says. “It sounds like we’re shitting on it, but this was everything we wanted. This is what we were hoping for. A real experience in an old fucking weird place. So, one of our rooms was one of those haunted rooms. Apparently in that room, you see a lady in a brown dress. We’ll get to that.”

And then, right before their nighttime tour, everyone but Stassi, Katie and Annabelle left.

“I have been a Nazi about getting here on time because I don’t want to inconvenience any of the other people on the tour, I don’t want to inconvenience the tour guide,” Stassi explains. “So, they’re gone, and the tour guide looks at me and is like, ‘I guess your friends aren’t going to make it.’ And at this point, I’m drunk already, I’m already in my head.”

“Meanwhile, he looks like a magician,” Rachael adds.

“So I start panicking,” Stassi says. “I’m falling into a deep, moody hole. And when I get into a bad mood, it’s so hard to get back out of it.”

With no other option, the three girls start the tour without their other friends. (Everyone else went to get cocktails for the tour.)

“We get to a spot that looks like a museum,” Stassi says. “It could not have been more quiet. Like a library, or a mausoleum. Notre-Dame was louder than where we were. And then, all of the sudden, I hear laughter, yelling…”

“Joy…” Rachael adds.

“Loud voices. And I’m like, “No, oh no oh no oh no. I’m in this silent place and I hear all of my friends like a fucking stampede of wild animals,'” Stassi says.

“Yeah, we barreled in,” Rachael confirms. “It was like Rosie O’Donnell coming out of the closet. We barreled into the world like that.”

“All of them double fisting,” Stassi adds.

The 15 other strangers on the tour were all sober, mind you.

“And my friends come in like loud monkeys, double fisting. I was like, ‘I’m going to kill myself. This mood is going to take over me. I’m going to leave this tour and go back to the hotel room alone and be miserable unless I really get out of this.'”

And then the tour goes on. (It wasn’t great.)

“This tour was like they made it Disneyland,” Stassi says. “They were like, ‘There was a man that died and this is the anniversary of his death and we like to leave him a shot of whiskey.'”

“It was all planted,” Rachael says.

“This is a man that died 90-100 years ago, and you’re telling me that his legacy is that he loved whiskey and blue peonies?” Stassi asks.

“That are plastic. It was too much,” Rachael says.

So they staged a coup to get out of the tour early, which worked. And then they went back to the hotel and got into their pajamas and had cocktails.

“We walk down the hallway, we’re going up the stairs, we’re all whispering, spilling our drinks, we’re fucking hammered, it’s 2:00 in the morning. I felt like I was hovering above my body at this point, because I’m watching a group of eight people whisper and tiptoe like they’re the fucking Scooby-Doo gang. It’s the most dramatic tiptoe.”

They made it to their room — the infamous, haunted room.

“We find it. Katie starts taking photos. Katie’s always had this thing where she sees spirits. She can take photos of things and see orbs,” Stassi explains.

“She has ghosts that are into her, I don’t have guys that are into me that are humans, but whatever,” Rachael jokes.

“The two Gs — ghosts and guys. And so she starts taking photos and most of them are normal,” Stassi continues. “And then all of the sudden she’s like, ‘Holy shit.’ Zac is standing there alone, she takes a photo, and in this photo, there is a black fog coming out of the door vent.”

“It was a thing,” Rachael says. “A black mass.”

“I know for a fact, without a doubt, that it was a spirit,” Stassi says. “We were standing there the whole time looking at a plain door, and then all of the sudden there is a black mass coming out of a vent?”

“It really freaked me out,” Stassi says. “It was all I could think about, all I could talk about. I made Annabelle sage Zack and the rest of us. I really was scared.”
