Jeff Lewis is fighting mad after learning the surrogate he hired to carry his daughter Monroe is suing Bravo. Alexandra Trent, who has appeared on Flipping Out several times, filed a lawsuit against Bravo for filming segments of her giving birth – including some snarky comments Jeff made about her vagina – without her permission. Alexandra is seeking unspecified damages for unlawful recording, fraud, and invasion of privacy.
Although viewers couldn’t see any of the actual birth process, the camera crew was stationed behind a curtain recording the entire process, which according to Alexandra, was a violation. She also cites that she was humiliated by Jeff’s inappropriate remarks.
Jeff acknowledges that his comments about Alexandra’s vagina, among others, were “a poor attempt at humor” but maintains that he and Gage Edward are “devastated” by the lawsuit because of the negative connotation it gives their daughter’s birth, and also because they considered Alexandra a friend.
Uh oh. Bravo may be on the hook for airing footage they shouldn’t have, and in this case, they might have to pay up big time. On Flipping Out last season, Jeff Lewis and Gage Edward witnessed the birth of their baby girl, Monroe, via surrogate, Alexandra Trent. The birth itself was filmed, along with snide remarks from Jeff about Alexandra not “waxing” before the event, and Gage admitting he was freaked out at his first sighting of a woman’s vagina.
Now, a humiliated Alexandra claims she never consented to this footage being aired, and is suing Bravo for damages.
All of the viewers who watch Flipping Out know about Jeff Lewis and Gage Edward’s journey to become parents. It has been a long and stressful one. Thankfully, they finally got to the good part. The happy couple welcomed their baby girl yesterday and they already shared a precious pic from the big day.
So you can’t really see the baby’s face or anything, but the back of her head is super cute and Jeff looks more loving than I’ve ever seen. Fatherhood is a good look for him. The two of them seriously look adorable.
