Sarah talks about her wild party and explains why she didn't go to Jeff's speaking engagement.

on Jul 27, 20110

Jeff totally freaked Zoila out the morning of her surgery, and it was pretty hectic. Jeff was harassing her, basically to ease his nervousness, which was really upsetting Zoila. No surprise. He means "well" though. I never thought I would be able to watch the surgery, but maybe because it was someone that we care about, "Sweetises" Zoils, that made it different. Jenni, Jeff, and I were totally freaked out when the nurse had trouble waking her up. Of course Zoila pulled through and she is looking so FLY!

Jeff had arranged a speaking engagement in Vegas and offered to throw me a bachelorette party in conjunction. The trip began with Jeff telling his staff on the plane that we were not obligated to attend his speaking engagement whatsoever. So, with that said, we enjoyed ourselves to the extreme and partied! Our dinner and strip club visit were awesome, and I know most of us enjoyed ourselves. With the exception of one person.  

The next morning Trace, Jett, and I did not attend Jeff's speaking engagement, as Jeff reassured us that it was not necessary. We believed him. I guess we were misled.

Of course the girls at the Sapphire Gentleman's Club were great. For me, home is where the heart is!

Going to miss your fine behind. A great part of the show was your bubbly personality and bubble rear. Your man is lucky but a got all your shows on DVD. Going to miss you. Gage is a freakin idiot. But he also got what he wanted.

When your boss is having a speaking event and says "Oh, you don't have to go," it's a test. It shows him how serious someone takes their job. Sounds like you learned your lesson the hard way.

Hi Sarah! I have one question for you....after watching the episodes back, do you feel any animosity towards Gauge ? It seems to me that he has been whispering in Jeff's ear for a while.....telling him to fire you as well as several other members of the '"family". Then he is all sweetsie walking you out to your car saying he doesn't know what went on , but had snuck into the kitchen during your conversation with Jeff to listen in. I think he is a wolf in "Gauge"clothing !!! Who could be next I wonder ???

Sarah, I know it was you that caused Stacy not to like Jenni, it was way obvious and not cool. Complete unprofessional behavior.

Sarah, I really liked you as a person but I have to say that you really should have been fired A LONG TIME AGO. It wasn't that you are bad at the job but more that you made the same mistakes over and over and over for 2 years. If you weren't related you probably wouldn't have made it past the first couple of months. Maybe once you are married you should be a stay at home wife. Good luck

Sarah, I cried the night that you got let go, I watch every episode of the show and I loved you and Trace the most. Zoila is amazing to put up with Jeff for so long, but even Jeff and Jen are good people in my book. I think Gauge however is out to get everyone and run Jeff's business into the ground. It was very saddening to see you and now Trace let go and it is clear that these decisions are going to take a HUGE toll not only on the company, but the show as well. They have now lost 2 of the most important people and I fear Jen is next on the chopping block. I blogged for the first time today on Trace's speaking out Blog that once his business gets going he should hire you and Jen to come work for him and start a new television show called "Making Out". Same principals different name. I can't believe that Jeff is taking the advice of Gauge some pathetic person that will just be dumping Jeff once he feels he has "won over" the company. What can we say. You and Trace deserve better and so does Jen. Jeff will hopefully learn one day from his mistakes. I am no longer a fan of the show, now that you and Trace are gone. Stay strong, funny, professional and upbeat. I watched you grow on the show and become the strong successful person you are now. You will be missed, but I know in my heart we will be seeing you and Trace again on another television show :)

Sarah,

The sexiest thing in my home is the television when you are on it!

Please know that while Jeff Lewis Designs didn’t work out, I am certain you have a future in Hollywood. Good luck with the wedding and God’s speed.

Hi Sarah! Love you on the show, I would love to see you on WWHL. You seem like such a nice person. Very refreshing on a reality show. I can't believe Jeff had the gall to knock you for not going to his speaking engagement...you were on a party weekend, jeez!! Looked like you guys had a blast by the pool. Jeff's bf needs to get the stick out of his buttocks by the way. Stay sweet...your fiance is a lucky guy!

Sarah - congrats on the upcoming nuptials!! This the first I have ever written and I felt compelled to speak after watching this last episode. I think it was very unfair of Jeff to expect you and others to make it to his speaking engagement after he told you not to worry about attending. And then to be mad when you didn't pass his test, read between the lines, or however you like to call it, to have known you were REALLY expected to attend, is all unreasonable. And SERIOUSLY, who plans a major Las Vegas party the night before an important work event?!! Seems to me that for someone who makes such a great living planning and organizing, that he would have successfully planned for the party to take place after the work is completed. Hmm...me thinks what happened in Vegas was not meant to stay in Vegas, but rather, come home so he could have something to pick on you about. Stay Sweets Sarah!!
