Gage thinks Andrew should find work elsewhere.
He does not see him as a business plus.
Gramercy is now listed to attract a buyer and the landscaping must be completed.
Jeff crank calls his grandmother to relieve stress.
The Fullerton remodel is meeting with grandmother opposition.
Andrew takes charge of Spring Oak’s backyard.
Gage makes it clear he is uncomfortable delegating to Andrew.
He is very vocal about his trust issues.
Jeff does his best to get Gage to lighten up.
Is there anything that Gage is comfortable with? Don't worry Jenny you are a good actress and I am sure there are better things out there for you. You are very funny and Jeff will be sorry. He is such a mess ,how did he ever get this show? Worst day for this show was when Gage showed up. He doesn't like Zoila, Andrew and I never see him even smile at any of you. Not fun to watch anymore.
Gage is a cancer on the show. He might be a good businessman but he is still a mean girl. We don't know the background with Jeff and his brother. There might be a reason why the grandmother wants the brother to have the house. I love this show but the part with Andrew is just getting too mean.
Jeff runs his office like a disfunctional family; he admits that he employs people based on their entertainment factor rather than merit at times. Gage is more corporate minded - he does not seem amused by the antics but that does not make him a stick in the mud. I find it odd that Jeff took Andrew back after all of the lies and after checking into his resume only to find out that he lied on there too (suprise suprise). Who can blame Gage, who didn't particullarly care for Andrew to begin with, to be further suspicious and even less likely to want to "like" Andrew? And just because Jeff likes his employees to be more like family than subordinates does not mean that Gage has to have the same attitude about that. Jeff encourages the teasing, jokes and unprofessionalism but then is quick to snap when someone crosses the line - but who really knows where that line is as times? It seems like it depends on Jeff's mood, the subject, or if that person has pissed him off that day. With Gage what you see is what you get -- he will clearly be suspicious of you and you will have to "earn" him liking you .. it seems like he is almost making up for Jeff being so quick to trust, forgive and like everyone. Gage does come off sassy, cold and pompous at times but I think that is in comparison to the rest of the people in the office; I am willing to bet that if you put Gage in a different company or environment everyone's perception of him would really change.
I wish Jenni would tell Jeff where to stick it and quit! She is too good to be working for him. He has no business telling her what she can and can't do after business hours. I'm sure most of his clients like Jenni more than they like him and he knows it. If he is that insecure about his business clients, I feel sorry for him. I thought he was horrible at her wedding and if anyone should be mad, it should be her. Jeff is a real a#@.
Gage is never amused. It's funny that Gage is the one that seems to have the problems with everyone else. I don't trust Gage.
Gage is from the midwest, we are very reserved here in this part of the country, it takes alot to break the ice and get close. Just because you work together does not mean you have to be friends. I love watching Jeff play practical jokes - more of that please. Also could you get Jeff to redesign the watch what happens live studio - it needs a Jeff Lewis upgrade really bad. At least change the horrible rug if nothing else.
I felt so bad for Jeff when Pat told him she will leave the house to Greg. Mean old lady. No appreciation for what Jeff has done for her.
Jenni, Jenni who can Jeff turn to? You give him something he can hold onto ...lol. ...seriously Gage has got to loosen up ......Jeff's grandmother didn't really seem to like the update not sure what is going on there..she seems to favor Jeff's brother...hmmm...I like to know the story behind that ...Andrew is good for comic relief but will he get the job done? .......Miss Val
When you think about it, many people who profess to be all about "being real" and "being honest" just want to let themselves off the hook for rude and ugly behavior. Really, what is the virtue in "honestly" sharing every negative opinion you have of a person "to his face"? It's the same as adolescent bullying.
That's not to say it's better to spread your negative opinions behind a person's back - especially in a workplace. Regardless, it all sets up a very toxic environment that makes it impossible for the targeted person to succeed. Most real managers know that putting an employee "under a microscope" is no way to get them to shape up - unless, of course there is real intent or possible theft or fraud or something.
Gage behaved like a teenage mean girl, not the professional he claims to be, and should never be allowed to supervise Andrew or any other employee. He formed a very negative attitude about Andrew, and was determined to cling to it no matter what.
Goodness, from the breadth of this comment section I would think Teresa wrote most of them. Unlike many of you, I actually like Gage. I don't believe he is one for much nonsense, and in this way creates a pleasant balance with Jeff in both their business relationship, and possibly personal(which we don't seem to see too much of). He provides a nice, and perhaps needed contrast for the show's cast as a grounding element. He appears to have a slightly different sense of humor, and a stoic nature about him which is respectable enough. That being said, I feel as if he can be a little cruel sometimes, and unfortunately gives in to the immature antics around him(ie: Zoila's Miss Piggy teasing), yet ultimately I believe he has a good heart. Outside of some of the commenter's desires for the shows entertainment appeal, I trust that it would be agreeable on a logical level that Gage is subjectively a valuable attribute to the business. He appears effective, efficient, and clear headed in his business dealings on camera. As far as Andrew is concerned, I feel that Gage has been quite fair with him for the most part. He's very forthcoming about his true feelings, so that Andrew knows where he stands in their relationship. I don't see Gage's perception of Andrew as a sign of self insecurity or a personal attack, rather just reasonable distrust, and a low tolerance for foolishness in the workplace. Andrew's business ethic reveals itself to be a mixture of schtick, self-depreciation, and a raunchy sense of humor; all of which don't seem to fit well with Gage, or atleast not during working hours. We like to be entertained and humored, but when we look at it from a genuine business perspective(real world), a lot of Andrew's behaviour and actions are fairly inappropriate and unappealing in an office environment. Because of this, I don't believe Gage's reactions are too unreasonable really. I have to wonder why he is being singled out here. Lastly, this is a reality show based mainly around an office and its work. There are small peeks at their lives outside of the workplace, but these reflect hardly enough knowledge for viewers to make any viable deductions about their personal lives, and even less so for those same viewers who feel entitled to impart advice of life decisions.
I agree with you, I also like Gage. BTW, who says that he has to like Andrew? They are co-workers and he is his boss, Gage really doesn't have to be his friend, and that is A OK. I actually thought it was very mature and honest when he told Andrew that he rather respect him professionally than to like him. That is a lot in the work place. I rather be respected for the quality of my work than liked because I am funny, mind you, I believe one can have both but no one can force another to like you, especially not at work. I also think Gage has every right to not trust Andrew as his lies were huge and he was rude to Jeff when he was cought. I would protect my partner and his business too. I love the show and I get that it is for entertainment but some people, like Zoila, should remember that Gage is Jeff's chosen partner in life and a hire ranked executive in the business.
I'm so glad others agree with me. I think Gage is full of it. He wants power, is really nasty to Andrew. If Jeff (and Bravo, of course) want Andrew on the show, then he should just shut up. The show wouldn't miss a beat without him.
Hey Gage we don't have to like you so maybe Bravo will read the comments and tell you -- you need to go. Just my opinion.
If Jeff and Gage want a relationship...which always seems in trouble....keep it off camera and take Gage and his sour puss commments and micromanagement of Jenni, Andrew and Zoila off the show. Let Jeff find out on his own what a killjoy Gage is and find someone fantastic and bubbly and likes to have fun like Jeff does. Gage needs to go back to the droll corporate world of Nebraska....ha!
I AGREE WITH ZOILA WHEN SHE CALLS GAGE "BARBIE B****!" HE TRIES TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE HE IS ALWAYS RIGHT ABOUT EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE IS WRONG, LIKE HE IS THE BEST-I DON'T THINK SO!! JEFF, YOU DON'T NEED SOMEONE LIKE HIM, YOU CAN BE WITH SOMEONE WHO WILL BE HONEST, TRUE, FAITHFUL AND LOYAL TO YOU BUT ALSO TRY TO BE A NICE PERSON WITH THE PEOPLE AROUND HIM, SINCE YOU ALL WORK IN SUCH CLOSE PROXIMITY. THINK ABOUT IT JEFF, BE CAREFUL. I LIKE YOU SO MUCH, I DON'T WANT TO SEE SOMEONE TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOU. PLEASE DON'T GET RID OF JENNI-SHE IS VERY LOYAL TO YOU, YOU KNOW THAT! LOVE YOUR SHOW.
I hope andrew is more cautious now since he's got his job back, gage is looking for reasons to get rid of him just like he did with Sarah she kept messing up as well. zoila is funny to me that part where gage had a stomache or something and then zoila said, "you're pregnant" LOL that gage didn't like that comment at all. since zoila is speaking up more now nobody is messing with her as much.
@greatlakes: by reading the comments left on this site I'd say Gage has just a handful of supporters. Sounds like posts are in favor of his leaving 10 to 1. However..... These reality shows are all based on strife and friction so maybe Bravo knows what they are doing by giving camera to Gage's nasty side. We all love to hate a villain and Gage has been surprisingly mean and petty to all our favorites! Zoila we love her. Andrew- you goofball chronic liar you make me laugh hysterically every time u get camera.... And Jenny our beloved Jenny! Who could be mean to you!? Well except for Jeff lol. But we've all seen his soft side and he's a great guy when u get through the rough exterior. He gave his maid a Mercedes! Who does that? So we love them all, and love to hate Petty snippy bitchy Gage. But I gotta tell ya I wouldn't cry if Jeff gave him the boot. :-))
Stacey0910 Why shouldn't Gage be bitchy? Jeff and Gage were supposed to have a home together at Gramercy, along with parenthood, then Jeff shifts gears and decides to sell Gramercy without even consulting his other half (Gage) until, like, the last second. I think Gage got a raw deal; his heart was set on having a loving home and being a parent! Jeff let him down.
It blows me away that I like Gage, and yet others here are so down on him; Gage is a good businessman!
dancingdeer Stacey0910 I agree that Gage got a raw deal from Jeff. Jeff just blithely swept away their plans to move into Gramercy and start a family, saying only, "this is life with Jeff Lewis and if you don't like it..." you can leave. Wow. How narcissistic can you get?
However, that doesn't excuse Gage's bullying. Good businessmen do not make it impossible for employees to succeed.
Stacey0910 Most of them aren't being rational, and don't seem like they've been in a position of management either. Gage fits in the corporate world very well, and perhaps that may be where he belongs. Jeff's business is extremely unprofessional, and as someone who used to teach HR courses on sexual harassment and the like, I could easily point out issues that he could get sued for weekly. I think Zoila is funny myself, but she would be fired anywhere else for her mouth also. What it boils down too is this. Jeff is the one who didn't show respect to Zoila by letting her know a head of time that he had found someone he wanted to share his life with and that he, Gage, would be moving in. Zoila herself admits the surprise of Gage coming in made her react and continue to act badly.Jeff decided that he and Gage were no longer going to have a child and raise it at Gramercy, but all last season that's all they talked about. He once again is making decisions for others in his life without consideration for their feelings. You tell me, if you were in a serious relationship with someone, living with them, and they chose "no kids now" and didn't discuss it with you, how would that go over?It's obvious that on some level Jeff sees something in Gage the rest of us don't see. He likes Gage's nurturing aspect outside the office, as exhibited with the care of their pets. This maybe what he needs and thus why they are together, but as this isn't a reality show about their personal life, we'll never know.Now Jeff is suing Jenni, and the promo's show him ready to fire her.
And just because I stand up for Gage's business practices and professionalism, doesn't mean I don't enjoy the other characters on the show. What I do see is many people hating on someone who really would be considered a true professional in any business atmosphere.
I cant stand Gage. what on earth does Jeff see in him? He is a total creepy slimeball.
He creates problems and brings a dark cloud upon the show.
mbb I agree! It is more like a summary, it's like Jenni's basically reciting what viewers have already seen, minus her opinion, she's not weighing in at all, haha. :-)
dancingdeer mbb Considering she wrote a book that Jeff is suing her over, it may be a strategy of safety.
Love Flipping Out! But...
1. Gage is a gold digger who does just enough work to keep Jeff as his sugardaddy. Make some money without Jeff's help and I may change my mind. Right now you just smirk, scoff and whine while having everything handed to you by your man. Stop trying to acquire self respect by demeaning Andrew. While Andrew has his issues, he's a hard worker... You could learn from him and EARN your own money for a change.
2. Jenny is awesome and Jeff will never find another assistant as tolerant, loyal, and hardworking. Don't screw it up, Jeff.
3. I love Jeff, but I see this lawsuit against Jenny as a ratings ploy. The numbers are down. The drama is down. Put it out there that Jeff is suing Jenny and people will probably tune in. Whatever works, I guess. My opinion: Jeff is showing his normal nice side this season and it isn't as fun as his embellished angry side in past seasons. And suddenly we get the therapist every week?? wtf? That shows desperation.
4. Zoila - If she goes, I go.
I love this show! But please keep it real!
I agree with the Dr. Zoila is very jealous of Gage!!! If Zoila wants respect she needs to give respect!!!! I find Zoila very lazy & rude & I wish she would quit saying shut-up!!! I find that very rude. Jeff could use somebody like Gage in his life. He is more grounded in this relationship.
carol.stuber.7 Gage is a real creep! I hope Jeff dumps him. no one needs a jerk like that.
Gage is a DRIP!! He needs to lay off Andrew and Jeff needs to dump him! I bet Jeff would give Gage enough money to go out and by himself a personality. I love Andrew and all the cast except Gage.
I really hope Jeff watches the episodes and sees what the viewers observe. Jeff was wrong in the Barbie B*tch episode.. Zoila was wrongly accused of taking all the bacon, the waitress set the bacon in front of Zoila and she did not even eat any before Gage barked at her "That's not all for you!" she never said it was.. who speaks like that at a table?! That was vile and disgusting and showed Gage grew up with no manners, nor class.
Really this episode did Gage no favors in winning over viewers.. we saw a jealous, petty, vindictive man trying to destroy any friendships Jeff may have and enjoy. Andrew did not do anything to deserve such vile treatment. Very sad to watch, but made me adore Andrew even more.
BeachBunny23 I wrote earlier that I do not like Gage and I completely forgot to write about that part of the episode. People here are writing that Zoila needs to stop saying "shut up" but what else is she supposed to say especially when no one takes her side? Gage thinks he is better than everybody there and he seems to think that he can do no wrong. Sorry Gage-YOU ARE NOT PERFECT! I'm glad I'm not the only one noticing that he has no manners or class.
I admire Gage, he's very businesslike and a straight-shooter, and as far as Andrew, he tells it like it is! I mean, Gage is the only one who's held his own in terms of Andrew's fiction; I'm amazed that Jeff has tolerated Andrew in lieu of the lies he's told, how many employers would have put up with that? When I think of how Jeff fired Trace (I think Jeff was threatened and jealous of him), and yet he keeps Andrew? I mean, it makes no sense to me!
First and foremost- CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR WEDDING!! I wish you all the best and may you have many years of happiness next to your husband. Now on to what I want to say. I really do not like the way Gage is acting. He thinks he is BETTER than everyone else, and I think the way he is treating Andy is ridiculous. Telling him that he won't eat the cake because he does not trust him? What the hell is that? He's NOT ALL THAT LET ME TELL YOU! I know he is Jeff's partner but fair is fair. I needed to express my opinion because lately he is getting on my nerves. Please tell him to lighten up and to stop being such a DIVA!! I hope all is well with you and Jeff, I know that on the coming attractions things look a little heavy between you and him. I know everything will be okay, he loves you. Best of luck to you and may you enjoy the Holiday season and a joyous and prosperous New Year 2013. Love you.
If Andy posted a poll for our least favorite Bravolebrity, Gage would win hands down.
rnkat HousewifeFan9331 hahahaa!!! rnkat SO TRUE!!! Agreed HANDS DOWN! Now SHE is indeed the least fav! I can't stand her conniving jealousy, she is SO TRIFLING! uuugh!
Hysterical Andy and Jeff. Arrogant is Gage. "I don't have to like you." Really? Don't have to like him either.
Does anyone know what brand/style o f watch Gage was wearing on episode 66 that aired on 11-13-12
I think Gage looks like the grown up version of his namesake from Per Cemetary! He is driving me nuts. When he went after Zoila that was it for me...I don't even watch the parts he is in, just fast forward to the fun stuff. He needs to go!
Boot1534 I dont like watching the show with him on it either. Obviously the producers dont care for him because they make him look bad. He is ruining the show. I think Zoila should have her own show.
Jenni, I don't get it why you take the verbal abuse from Jeff. I wish Bravo would give you a show of your own...you are so entertaining. I think Jeff has more in common with Andrew than he does with Gage...
It seem clear that nobody likes Gage. I don't either and I can understand why Jeff may be putting off having a family with the humorless kill joy.
Heidi_Ylenni I don't HATE Gage, but I definitely don't think he is a right "fit" for Jeff Lewis Enterprises. I feel bad for him on one hand, because I don't think that he is ever going to get what he wants out of this relationship with Jeff. On the other hand, his pouting about it makes me want to make a pie and smush it in his face. But apparently, Jeff likes him, so he must be good at something...................
rnkat Heidi_Ylenni You got that right about the relationship. I think how Jeff handled the baby aspect of things would have been a big deal breaker for a lot of people. I don't think he pouts, btw, I think he removes himself from the situation, which is rather mature.
