Flipping Out Recap: Jeff and Frankie Battle and Create an Exit Strategy

On this week’s episode of Flipping Out, first it’s Paul out the door and now Jeff Lewis and Frankie go head to head on more than one occasion and the tension is getting to everyone.

At Valley Vista, Jeff tells Frankie that he wants to train him for the job he was meant to do, but the management part of it he’s struggling with. (Okay, I’m confused. Why not send Frankie to project management classes? But I’m not Jeff…)

Jeff Lewis Surrogate Lawsuit Will Go To Trial Next Year; Judge Denied Plea To Seal Lawsuit From Public

Jeff Lewis and his partner Gage Edward want the lawsuit from their surrogate to disappear, but the exact opposite is happening. Not only is the lawsuit against the Flipping Out stars moving forward to a jury trial, but Jeff’s request to seal the lawsuit from the public was denied by a judge.

For anyone out of the loop, the surrogate who carried and delivered Gage and Jeff’s daughter Monroe is suing the couple, Bravo, and the production company after footage of the birth was featured on an episode of Flipping Out. She contends that she did not agree to that and that she was told the birth was being filmed for home use only. It seems like a lot to take on reality TV stars, a production company, and a network, but this case is moving forward and she even has the delivery room doctor on her side.

Jeff Lewis Read Text Message With Andy Cohen On His Radio Show

There is more drama behind the scenes on Flipping Out than on the actual show. By “behind the scenes,” I mean on Jeff Lewis’ radio show. He recently revealed that his contract at Bravo has not been renewed. For the record, his show has NOT been canceled.

Jeff has been very vocal about his expired contract on his radio show and on social media. Apparently Andy Cohen is not happy about this. To get more publicity make matters worse,  Jeff read his text conversations with Andy on his radio show, which is on Andy’s SiriusXM channel RadioAndy. Is this self sabotage? An elaborate PR stunt? Or is it just Jeff keeping it real while he still has the public platform to do so?

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.”
