I went back to work for Courtney, hoping she had learned a lesson. I wanted a fresh start, a meeting of the minds and it seemed to be happening -- until her husband, Joe, entered the picture. I realized that what she was telling me was different from what she told her husband when Chris Ash let me know he had asked if my workers would stay if he fired me. This put me in a terrible position. I was afraid to tie up my crew with a non-paying project for me, but I also had no work for them and landing a well-paying job isn't all that easy. I was kind enough to let them stay and I feel satisfied in how I handled leaving Courtney. Still, I was extremely disappointed that she had fallen back into her old ways and we could not see eye to eye. It looks like the only person who changed in that situation was me, since I ended our work together with no anger and what I thought was a lot of generosity.
I'm also happy with how things ended with Chris Keslar, since I was able to keep it professional. He just refused to acknowledge his mistakes, which irritated me beyond belief. A simple "I'm sorry" would have worked just fine, but he rarely apologized. Instead, he tried to justify his actions. I began to question his motives for working with me. I understand it takes a while to get used to having three cameras follow you wherever you go, but Chris seemed overly distracted. As a result, he made a lot of mistakes. Yes -- I teased him mercilessly, but I now realize that it was because I became increasingly suspicious about his motives. When I look back, I wonder if he was in it for his own advancement rather than making a contribution. He had failed to tell me that his mother and his sister had already appeared on Project Runway -- I learned of that much later. I also found out he was taking acting classes on Saturdays. This confused me because I was under the impression he wanted to pursue design.
I resolved that he must have been in it for the show. Why else would he have asked Zoila to trade seats with him so he could show the camera his best profile? (Is it possible that he could just be a vain man? Maybe.) By the way, Zoila is so perceptive, she was onto him before I started questioning his motives. Maybe this is why she seemed so agitated around him. At Jeff Lewis's office, my business comes before the show, while Chris was making the show more important. That isn't the way to get promoted. You get promoted by making yourself indispensable. And Chris was making himself disposable. I know I hazed him relentlessly, but his behavior was making me suspect and I was annoyed and disappointed. One afternoon, he interrupted an important meeting to ask me what he should wear in an upcoming photo shoot -- five days away..
When are you coming back? I wish you were on all the time! Can't wait for your return! I wanted to vote for your show on A list. There wasn't a place to.

Jeff, You are Fab-u-lous!!! I loved your show and really got a kick out of Zoila! I hope you come back for Season 3, Bravo's not the same without you! For sure.
Hi Jeff. I was shocked at Chris's lack of concern when your cat was missing. I broke up with a guy who let my one cat out (I have 2 that are inhouse cats only). And, no, he didn't apologize. He did appear to be performing for the camera. But not to worry. He just looked like a fool. Stay the way you are. If people don't like it, they don't need to work for you. You are one of a kind. That's why your show is so successful.
Where oh where is season 3? I am so obsessed with the show I even named my new kitten Monkey! Please come back!
Please come back I miss you guys. I saw Chris outside the Jimmy Kimmel show. He seemed a bit paranoid. No love for any fans from him! I really miss you guys! So fun to watch!
I wish I could afford for you to come to my home! I in awe of your ability and eye for design. It is truly a gift. Please come back to give your fans another taste of Jeff Lewis and more.
Where are you? Are you coming back? My husband and I really miss your show and would love to have you back on TV.

Jeff you are so handsome. If you fathered a child it would be very good looking. I hope one day you will father a child.
Jeff, You have no idea how much I miss you and your show! Please tell us you're coming back!! Every now and then I have to play one of the old episodes just to get my "flipping out" fix! Please come back soon!!
Greetings from County Wicklow, Ireland. Firstly thank you for one of the most interesting shows on TV. Your attention to detail is incredible, and I absolutely adore your designs. With regard to the above, I'm rather afraid to say I got the same irritable feeling as Zoila. Lastly, if you get a moment, do you think you could possibly fly to Ireland and help me with my house - I had the in-conceived notion that my home was rather nice. I'm very much mistaken. It's a dump! Jenni - I went to Starbucks earlier (for a latte) and bought a thermometer - would this be of help to you should temperature issues raise their head again, please be advised however it has a rather sharp end.... Emma
When are you coming back? I love the show...you are a real paradox....a really nice guy at heart who treats people like crap....I admire you chutzpah!
Love the show and you are fab! From one OCD to another....we rock! Hope we see another season very soon. All the Best.
Hey Jeff: Love your show but I have a nagging suspicion that Chris Elwood was rooting through your private stuff and computer for another show he does, namely punked. Any thoughts on that?
Hello Jeff and Jenni..Last nights episode brought tears to my eyes Jenni was crying in the car it was so sad to see her so upset. I love the show don't ever change you are what you are..I too hope there is a third series...All the best from Wales ..UK..
Looking forward to seeing you again soon. I'm sure the market will affect how this show goes. Jeff, you are a nut case, but a loveable one!
Jeff like so many others I am hooked on your show. While each member of the "cast" brings something special to the show it is clear to me that we are all so taken with the show because of you. At the risk of going overboard lets face it you are smart, handsome and obviously a shrewd businessman. I look forward to a new season.
I too love to watch the show and feel such empathy for the other cast members. Why you and Ryan split is no mystery but it would be great if you found another man!
DEAR JEFF, I AM WAITING FOR YOU TO RETURN TO THE TUBE. I ALWAYS ENJOYED YOUR SHOW AND THE MEMBERS OF YOUR HOUSEHOLD. HURRY BACK.
I love what you do. Are you for hire in Laguna Beach? If you ever make it to this part of town, I would love a consult.
Hey Jeff! I can't wait for your return for Season 3! You are one talented and well put-together guy. I also have to say that you are gorgeous, and I seem to have a bit of a crush on you! ;)
Am a project manager in IT... thinking of property dev once this crash starts to bottom .. 2012? 2014? .. who knows.. but PM.. same principles.. different subject matter ...your show? … had hoped to see a little more flipping rather than flipping... if you know what mean. Don’t need to see profit per say.. But can you start to get more PM on me? Would like the added seriousness. Cheers . M from Sydney
COME BACK JEFF I MISS THE SHOW SO MUCH
ALSO WHY CANT I BUY SEASON 1 DVD OR SEASON 2 YOUR MISSIN OUT ON SOME $$$$$
My daughter and I adore your show and can't wait until the new season starts! Being a "detail oriented" person myself, I can appreciate your attention to detail and we think you and your staff are hysterically funny! Thank you for one of the best shows on tv!
When is the next season starting? I hope it is soon!! I love this show and have told many people about it - many new fans looking forward to the next season.
Jeff, PLEASE DO TELL...what vacuum does Zoila use on your hardward? I have replayed TiVo so many times trying to stop on the vacuum that I probably need to buy a new TiVo. Thanks & I love the show!
I love your design-style. I need you to come to my house and tell me what to do with it! I need more photos from the ouses you've done for ideas!
You are a Terrific good hearted friend to Jenni!! Besides the fact that you are terrific at your work, I think people should see how caring you are towards your friends and your animals, and that is what matters!!
Hey Jeff, when are we going to see you with a man in your life? Mate, you are bloody a great guy to look at and to watch on tv. The property you do is amazing.
Bad Baby! More please! I was thinking you should hire a woman as your house assistant. Women have a better work ethic, and have been dealing with demeaning positions in the workplace for decades. If the new guy doesn't work out you should place a want add in the paper: Sadist searching masochist for house assistant. Must be willing to crawl through dumpster, no questions asked.
Guy, you'd break me!
