Flipping Out Recap: What Will Jeff Do?

Is it possible to be personally invested in the lives of reality TV folks one has never, nor will ever meet? Because, for good or for bad, that’s me when it comes to Jeff Lewis and the gang of Flipping Out. And this season, things feel more personal than ever. Season nine left off with Jeff and Gage Edward expecting their first child via surrogate, Zoila Chavez, Jeff’s housekeeper of eighteen years, moving out on her own, and renovations of Jeff’s current home, Valley Vista, only halfway completed. Since then, Jeff has (finally) agreed to agree to Zoila’s long overdue retirement this past year, which means he’ll have to find someone else to get his three brown salsas and alphabetize his refrigerator items, going forward. (Oh, the humanity!)

For season ten, we pick up just four weeks before the birth of baby girl Monroe, whose arrival will change everything. And Jenni Pulos doesn’t know it yet (at time of filming), but she’ll be expecting baby number two – her second daughter – who was born this past June after a long and arduous IVF journey. Whew. There’s a lot of life changes on the horizon for this crew. So, let’s jump right in and see how it all shakes out!

Season ten of Flipping Out is upon us, people! And it’s going to be a whole new world for first time fathers Gage Edward and Jeff Lewis, whose daughter, Monroe, was born via surrogate last October. Jeff recently discussed how life – and his OCD – has (and has not) changed since Monroe came into their lives and how he finally had to let his long time housekeeper and mother figure, Zoila Chavez, retire.

With enormous life changes this year, Jeff says the viewers are in for a different kind of season. He does, however, admit that his crusty old ways aren’t entirely gone. (For example, preview clips show Vanina Alfaro being brought to tears by yet another one of Jeff’s tirades.) But daily life has changed for Jeff. Besides the laundry, diapers, and toys, he’s still getting used to something else – someone else – needing his attention besides work.

Shannon teaches Sophie to drive

At this point there’s no doubt that Shannon Beador is having the toughest time out of all the Real Housewives of Orange County cast members this season. From her marriage, to her weight, to her fights with Kelly Dodd and Lydia McLaughlin, she has really been struggling.

Not only that but she lost her previous alliance member Heather Dubrow and she still refuses to speak to Vicki Gunvalson even though they’re cast members on the same reality TV show.

Zoila Chavez retires

After eighteen years of working for Jeff Lewis, everyone’s favorite Flipping Out cast member Zoila Chavez has officially retired. As of this moment, there’s no word on if this is just from housekeeping or if it’s from working all together (i.e. appearing on on the show).

Hopefully this housekeeping retirement does not mean reality TV retirement. The show just wouldn’t be the same without her. Either way, I feel like Jeff should throw Zoila an over the top retirement party. She more than deserves that.

Jeff Lewis and Bethenny Frankel on WWHL

With Bethenny Frankel and Jeff Lewis as guests, Andy Cohen didn’t have to make too much effort to host Watch What Happens Live last night. These two never have a problem opening up and spilling the tea, especially after the conclusion of Real Housewives of New York’s Mexico trip.

Bethenny and Jeff had a lot to say…. as per usual.
