A lot of your favorite reality TV stars were focused on the family time this week. Being mid-divorce did not stop Jenni “JWOWW” Farley and Roger Mathews from spending a Disney-themed day with their daughter.
Most people get tight lipped when they are in the middle of a lawsuit, but Jeff Lewis is not one of those people and that’s why his fans love him. Jeff, his partner Gage Edward , and Bravo, are being sued by the surrogate who carried their daughter Monroe after the birth was featured on their show Flipping Out.
That’s not the only major drama going on behind the scenes though. Jeff and his former BFF/assistant Jenni Pulos are in a major feud after he says she told Bravo bosses that he was “abusive.”
The surrogate who carried Jeff Lewis and Gage Edward’s daughter Monroe is suing the couple, Bravo, and the production company behind Flipping Out. She claims that she did not consent to the birth being filmed and she was shocked to see that on TV.
Now, the surrogate has the support of the doctor in the delivery room who just verified her version of events. This one is bound to get ugly.
With Shannon Beador and Jeff Lewis in the clubhouse, there was bound to be ample amounts of shade on last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live. Well, with Jeff Lewis and Andy Cohen, there’s bound to be ample amounts of shade. Shannon is more of a ‘straight to the point’ kind of girl than a shade thrower.
Shannon and Jeff discussed everything from Real Housewives of Orange County newcomer Gina Kirschenheiter, Vicki Gunvalson’s anti-divorce campaign, and of course, Jeff’s feud with Flipping Out costar Jenni Pulos.
Oh. Dear. Jenni Pulos hasn’t just left the Jeff Lewis empire, she potentially annihilated it! Pretty good last laugh for the woman who is essentially responsible for pitching the show that lead to Jeff becoming household name. The fighting between Jeff and Jenni has definitely gotten nasty in the past, but never bad enough to involve the authorities!
First of all, Jeff says Bravo has cleared him of “all abuse charges,” but as a result of Jenni’s allegations, he’s still concerned about the future of Jeff Lewis Design and Flipping Out. Jeff confirms Jenni will no longer be returning to the show after this season, and worries that he may be facing the same fate. “Her making this claim, it put my entire career in jeopardy,” says Jeff. “My family, my livelihood, everything!”
Some thought this day would never come, while others predicted it would happen years ago. Jenni Pulos and Jeff Lewis have parted ways, and sources say that this time, it’s for good. The Flipping Out duo have been friends and colleagues for over two decades, during which viewers have seen their relationship ebb and flow. And, let’s be real, that relationship involved Jenni getting screamed at a whole lot.
With season eleven of Flipping Out poised to premiere September 11, this news feels like a teaser for the on-screen drama to come. According to sources close to the pair, we’ll definitely see the breakdown of their partnership happen on camera. Reports firmly say that Jenni is truly gone this time, and gone for good.
It’s clear that things are not good between Real Housewives of Orange County stars Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson. And no it’s not about the same double date storyline that they’ve been arguing about all season. Thank god. That storyline has truly overstayed its welcome.
Now Kelly is calling out one Vicki’s “best friends” for harassing her and spreading lies to the media. She even says that Tamra Judge and Jeff Lewis can verify her claims. Is Vicki having someone else do her dirty work? That is a #TotalHousewifeMove if I’ve ever seen one- which I have… as in every single episode of every single Real Housewives show. This is a textbook tactic. She doesn’t get blood on her hands all while her latest rival takes the heat.
