After meeting Seana and Brad Sherwood, I felt they were a perfect fit for Jeff Lewis Design. Although I was put off by their request to meet them for dinner in my pajamas, I enjoyed myself and I really got to know them. I was amazed at how open and honest Seana was about her past. There was an instant connection for me. I also have a great amount of respect for her after hearing her journey. I am learning that you can never judge someone until you have walked in their shoes. Then you can judge. People have told me that for years, but I was never in a place to really understand it. I am so glad I was able to show up with an open mind.
At the Buena Park project, Vlad and I are not connecting. In a better market Vlad was his own boss, and apparently, he is having trouble adjusting to the new climate. I speak from experience in that it is an adjustment. I will say, it is not all bad if you embrace it. There are positives to working for other people. I for one enjoy being employed and I really like that consistent paycheck. Financial security in this time is worth the ego-crushing dose of humility I have been getting on a daily basis.
Next week, tensions rise and drama heightens. I'm very sorry to report that a valued employee of Jeff Lewis Design "runs for the hills."
Jeff, I am a "Great Loyal Fan" of your style, honesty, style (did I already say style?). And, oooooohhhhh to one day have a "Jeff Lewis" home in Sacramento, CA. Fondly, Great Loyal Fan
i dont care what anyone says i love jeff and the rest of the cast he is amazing and they do such a fabulous job i want to be just like jeff!!:)
Hello Jeff. I want you to know I am one of your biggest fans. I absolutely love the show and never miss it. I wish I could work for you.
Classic show...love it.
I wouldn't mind being your housekeeper - I think I wouldn't last 24 hours at anything else :o).
I love THIS SHOW ..... It is the ONLY Reality show I watch and omg it is soooo entertaining ! Seriously .... I could watch it 24/7/365 !!!!!!
Jeff U make my whole day .. my daughter and I are both addicted to your show .. she is 21 and I am 50 !!!! WE LOVE U !!!!!
I love your show .. IT is the BEST and the only one i watch regularly... my daughter is 21 and I am 50 and we chat on our phones about ur shows !!! WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH !
Jeff, I need to give you credit for being able to survive the downturn in the market and being so pragmatic about taking whatever work comes your way. With all of the houses you had going last year, I thought we would see you in the Bravo foreclosure hall of fame. Good luck in the future.
Jeff, I can't imagine your design business is not going to succeed. Despite your personal issues, it is obvious that you are extremely talented and would imagine that the Bravo show is the best advertising you could get for your brand. Good luck!
I love the show!!!
Question for you - in the intro to your show, there is a horizontal striped painting of various colors hanging on your well - what is the artist's name? And how do I get one??? I love it and am interested in learning how I can put one in my home.
This brings me to another point, your show always features some really great stuff, why don't you help sell any of those products via your website?? You could definitely start earning some extra money through commissions you earn by selling other people's stuff after it has been featured on your show.
Hey Jeff: love the show youre quirky sayings hit right to the point there is no beating around the bush with you and thats just what i like about you would Love to totally go out with you i find that youre sexy yet charming. And in this economic hard times im glad you are able to bounce into something even though you really dont like it very resourcful more people can and should learn from youre expeience.
Jeff, you have no idea how much I love you. I would give anything to spend a day with you and your "crew"! I would be in pain from laughing so hard. You guy's are hilarious. Love it.
They can all us what they want but Jeff you and I just know what we want, when we want it and how we want it-OCD, DCO, COD. I have to have things in order just as you do. All labels turned the same way, all same items together, dont touch my things but I may touch yours. Answer the phone the way you would like to hear someone answer for you. I am not into flipping or designing this is just how I am daily in life. And we always trying to help someone more than they try to help themselves. You go JEFF!!!!
more Ryan please. Love watching the two of you together, even when you disagree. He does fight nicer than you do. Want to see how Ryan's daughter has grown this last year.
Jeff, it was so hard waiting almost a year to see your show again as my favorite on Bravo. I do enjoy seeing Zoila put you in your place sometimes as only one that can! I also can relate somewhat with your OCD. Hang in there with getting the jobs as you are awesome in whatever you do...the ones you want will happen again in time.
Either YOU have changed, or I have...
I never liked your show before, actually I could go so far as to say I avoided it....but, for some reason, I am hooked this year! You definitely possess an unusual and intriguing personality, and I love the dynamics of the relationships on the show.
I do have a suggestion however! What about renaming the show? It could be something like "Flipping Out and that hot guy Ryan" haha...
(what??? it's not wrong for a heterosexual female to find a gay male enticing, is it? hmmm....maybe I'll cover that in therapy session #37)
Jeff, I love you! You are the best. And too handsome for words. I love your style & if I had the money would want you to remodel my house.
If you ever need an assistant, I'm your guy.
I'm OCD too and a skilled painter and fixer. Cleaning and ensuring things function properly are particular obsessions of mine. Most of my best friends have issues so I know we'd get along famously...I'm tough minded, so you needn't worry that you'd hurt my feelings too much!
Interested or interested in learning more? Let me know!
I absolutely LOVE this show and most of all...you, Jeff. I am a design assistant in Florida and I can soooo relate to sooo many moments that you have. Your sense of humor is PRICELESS. I look forward to your show and watch each episode over and over-I never get sick of it! I would love to meet you some day! You are the best thing on T.V. and in real life.
Jeff, Daily Variety, 8/21/09 issues states, Brown's reality show, "Flipping Out", has just begun its third season on Bravo.
I thought it was your show, OCD flipper, right?
hi Jeff or anyone anyone know what is the brand of the lights used in his valley oak II house?? I love them
i love watching you every week because a week without jeff lewis is like well nothing. in my younger years i would have loved the oppotunity to work with you ( im 48 now), and i definately could have given you a run for some if not all of your money! keep the flip outs coming and coming.
I enjoy the show, although I think you are too much at times. You need to relax more and be more accepting of others' frailties. No one is perfect and that includes you.
I do like you, but I have to chastise you for what I perceived as a less than gentlemanly comment you made about Jenni. This was when the couple that own Skytop were trying to set up Jenni on a date with a male friend of theirs. This friend, it turned out, was in a committed relationship of two years and was not in the dating market. You apparently did not believe this could be the case and you felt that the guy had seen a picture of Jenni online that he did not like and was looking for a way out of dating Jenni. I don't know what possessed you to think this, but I can tell you definitely that Jenni is very attractive and quite desirable to the opposite sex. I completely disagree with your assessment of Jenni's looks, and I think you owe her a BIG apology. By the way, I am a woman, and can certainly judge when another woman is pretty... and Jenni surely is.
Trace - can you say "mini-me"?? He is a perfect fit! At least until the nanny cams kick in and you find out that he might be playing checkers instead of chess...
Your biggest hetero fan (and I must say, what an immense loss to all of us women... - you're just too sexy!!)
Love love love love love the show....so glad it's back on. I can't get enough of your sarcasm and wit. Jennie is great and I hope someday to meet you two! That would be awesome. I'm a teacher and if you ever feel like "giving back" feel free to come up north and design a wonderful learning environment in my classroom with me!
Just wanted to let you know my husband and I enjoy your show. However, my husband is very OCD about the available disk space on the DVR we use on digital cable to record your show. I accidentally recorded EVERY episode of Flipping Out that has aired the previous two weeks. Needless to say, we had our own episode of Flipping Out...my husband had to manually delete more than 20 reruns of the same episode.
I would very much like to chat with you about hotel renovations. If this sparks your interest, please contact me via email.
I don't know what it is about you or the show but you make my week. During this difficult time in a ever so sad economy, you make me laugh. Even better, you make my husband laugh, which is damn near impossible sometimes. With all of the difficulties we've encountered in the past year or so, I look forward to the nights when I can turn on the TV and see you say what it is we all want to say but just don't. Not that we can't but we don't have the guts to do so. Thanks you for your honesty and your refreshing outlook on life. Thank you for making us laugh and turning a usually bad day into a better one. Thank you Jeff, Jenni, Tracy, Zoila, and the rest of the cast. We love you!!!!
Jeff, You are so funny! I'm sorry Avis doesn't get you. Maybe if my name was Avis I wouldn't get you either.
Jeff, You are so entertaining and talented and just fun to watch. Why aren't you branding yourself? I want Jeff Lewis pillows and plates and tchochkies from Target.
But here is a serious question do you use any fillers in your lips? You look fab, no need to apologize if you do, just wondering.
So, continue to do your thing. I find Ryan ANNOYING but I suppose he is the foil to your fabulosity.
Hey Jeff, Loving the show!
I understand what it is like to live with ocd and perfection tendencys myself...however... Man Jeff you gota try to reign it in a bit, people do have feelings.
You are the boss and they are your employees but at the same time...they are people too.
I am rooting for you Jeff. I would hate to see you end up a lonely old man.
That would be sad =(
Jeff, you and your cohorts are just too, too. I love the way you get along, like a very disfunctional family that functions. Keep it up. Also love the way you care about the cats and dogs. As long as you love your fluffy family, you can't be all bad.
i love watching this show. me and my daughter make sure we watch this together and we dont know who laughs the loudest. it is thw only show we both like. keep it up. we love u guys.
Jeff, What will the 2010 season be like with Alt-A and Option ARM default rates in California expected to be 40-50%? Are there any properties left in the state to "flip" that arent completely under water from the housing bubble?
Seems to me the premise of your show was fueled by the housing bubble and now that it has burst, the show doesnt have a reaalistic future.
Try not to flip out, k? lol
Jeff, why on your new season, when I hit info on the program, Chris Elwood's name is the first name in list of characters, then yours? I know he no longer works for you and he and Jenny are divorced. I use AT&T Universal as my provider.
Can someone answer a question for me. Why is it Jeff can't get his own food? Then he won't have to worry about onions, or not enough sauces, or whatever. I love the cast and the show most of the time, but he needs to get OVER the particulars regarding his food.
Jeff you are the guy I love to Hate! I love that you have given us a peak at your sense of humor...forced or real. Keep working it.....
My name is Moe,(Kerry). Jeff, I am a guy your age. My wife and I love your show. The thing is California real estate is so outragous. Here in southwestern Pennsylvania, (Johnstown, Pennsylvania) houses are not even close in price to what you guys have out there. A mansion of a house here, something beautiful and 100 years old would go for $400,000 to $500,000. The average nice 100 year old house, $75,000 or so. I live in a nice house in a beautiful historical neighborhood. It is 100 years old. It is worth $125,000. That's it. My wife Jenn and I are just blown away by how expensive houses are out your way. Amazing. Then again I'm sure that you are reading this email thinking the same thing. God Bless, Moe, Johnstown, Pennsylvania.
I pretty much think you Jenni and Zoila are amazing!!! Favorite reality show EVER!!! If you were straight...wow! I would be in love right now! :-) ha!
Jeff, you are such a great guy I love yor show!!!!! Ryan hosed you and doesn't deserve to be on your show or in the same room with you. Love love love Jeni and think you secretly are in love with her. How come all the good looking guys are gay?? You do wonderful work and have a rolling sense of humor. I too am suffering in this economy I own 2 houses in 2 diffrent states and its killing me. please tell me its going to change. Kathleen
Great Show, Love it, Jeff is a classic, funny , insane, inappropriate , all adds up to a great show, next best show to Seinfeld. keep it coming as for the Blogger "keeping an open Mind' A good developer can and will do well in any market conditions, At least he is having a go!In 2010 jeff will cruising in Bev Hills whilst your still on your couch watching and wondering where you went wrong. Jeff and crew, Australia loves Ya!
I would love to be your umberella holder for one week -- I see what you want in people but I also see self intemination. I would enjoy seeing if I could becaome a friend of Jeff Lewis in one week and then go back to my job - Director Risk Managment/Medical Staff Services in a hospitsl.
