Next Week on Flipping Out:
Does Jeff's work please Lisa G.?
What does the therapist say about Jeff and Zoila at war?
I saw this show for the first time ever. It was a repeat broadcast - this episode. I was truly appalled at Jeff's behavior. He did not once discuss any of his decisions or plans with Gage. Then he completely bullied...yes bullied Gage and called him names and made fun of his feelings! WTF? If someone made a bunch of decisions without discussing it with me and eliminated the chance of family to boot.....oh you bet I would be pissed!! Gage had every right to be less than thrilled. I actually though Gage handled it quite well considering the arrogant dictator Jeff just steam rolled over him.
The only version of a discussion shown was at the end of the episode when Jeff and Gage "hashed it out" (Jeff's words), but all it was is Jeff dictating until Gage was worn down and went along with Jeff. Gage..run buddy!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You will never be an equal and you will never have your feelings, needs, wants considered seriously.
Jeff didn't get all his house unpacked and pictures hung up the very day he dictated it and he throws a hissy fit and curses and swears and life is just over. All because of some ugly pictures not hung on the ugly walls. Then he turns around and calls Gage nothing but awful names and makes fun of his feelings and calls him sulky because Gage is not happy that Jeff completely derailed their lives and plans to have a family!!! Really?? Are you kidding me?? Gage lost his dreams of a family by this move (without any say in it) and Jeff can't figure out why Gage is not happy?? But, Jeff doesn't have pictures on the walls..and it's the end of the freaking world!!! It's Jeff's way...all the way...or the highway. Pictures are more freaking important than the fact that he just steam rolled his supposed spouse/partner.??
I WILL NEVER WATCH THIS SHOW EVER AGAIN!!! GAGE RUN!!!!! RUN NOW!!! Bully's deserve to be alone!!!!
Why is Gage so jealous of Andrew ? Thats all Gage talks about. Jeff I dont understand why you just dont tell Gage to knock it off. And as far as Jeff goes.....if he talked to me the way he talks to his employee's.....I would knock his head off. I just hate it when Jeff thinks that he is always right. I dont know how Jenni has stayed with him for as long as she has. Jeff is a control freak. Jeff doesnt know how lucky he is to have Jenni ! She has stuck by him no matter what. I love watching the show but Jeff is abusive to his employee's. He seriously needs help. And Zoila is a saint. She has put up with his BS for a long, long, long time. It seems like Jeff loves to put all of the down. And Gage is a jealous boy friend who doesnt like to joke around the office. And as far as Gage and Jeff being a couple......I think that Jeff should keep his word to Gage about them moving into their house. Jeff aint playing far there. Just syin'
Looks like Gage is more of one of Jeff's furniture accessories than a real partner in a relationship. It was obvious by the look on Gage's face that he is not going to get what he was lead to believe they were supposedly going to get in the "relationship". A stable home and family? Not!
Gage, honey, do yourself a favor and find someone who can give you what you want. You're still young, still pretty, which leaves you with a lot more options out there than selfish, elderly, emotionally unstable Jeff.
Jeff will never love anyone. He will only allow others into his life who live by his rules. Look at who's he surrounded himself with? All "yes" men.
Gage and Jeff don't seem to be a good match. How does Gage make his money? Is he on the Jeff Lewis payroll? It just seems odd that this couple didn't invest in the future family home together. Clearly they are different pages and different stages of life. No wonder Gage seems bitter and up tight al the time.
Jeff seems to disregard everyones feelings.
I watched a show and my feelings are harsh towards Gage and Jeff . Jeff you need a life and to think that you can get into peoples lives like you own them is wrong. Maybe a 1 on 1 would have been nice instead of group stoneing.
Gage I believe that you had a large part in what happened. I truely believe you know what episode I am talking about. I am not a fan.
I like Gage. Jeff treats him like a trophy wife. They're in a 3 year relationship. Jef doesn't tell him until AFTER he buys Spring Oak, that he buys Spring Oak and oh by the way..we're moving. Busiess is businss yes...but when it affects the lives of your partner/loved one there should be more of a dicussion.Gage's feelings are an after thought to what Jeff wants. Gage should think about that. I would hate to see him go..But he deserves better
I just feel that Jeff is too controlling to have an understand of someone feelings. 3 years he has been seeing Gage and he couldn't have dialog into how he is afraid of the finances and time? What Jeff spent on that house.due to it being a labor of love for his "potential family", Jeff needs to learn (at least by now I thought he would have with therapy) to allow his partners into his mind and trust them. As it seems that Jeff is playing games with Gage and doesn't trust him enough to give him insight to Grammercy. Now we all get how Jeff feels, I can't feel for Jeff if he always needs to manipulate things to his advantage. Gage is a life partner. ..Trust him Jeff..or you don't love him enough to do so and that ain't cool..not cool at all. Gage deserves the respect and like what happened with "Mr Brown"...you leave people in a scary place.
I agree. Jenny fights back, look how long she's been around in Jeff's world....it really seems like it's their world together at this point. I think Jeff understands himself better than anyone else could and for that poor Gage just couldn't keep up the "Banter", so to speak. Jeff needs someone to put him in his place or he'll walk all over them AND when he goes to jest and joke, if that other person does not stay strong they will wind up taking him personally......I think Jeff understands all of this about himself and it's much further than most people are able to take their own discoveries. By Jeff being such a "D" to Gage (in not listening or really validating him) it seemed to me that Jeff was making it easy for Gage to let go. I see something really deep in Jeff and I'm thinking that much of the editing floor film has the moments which would put what I am thinking into reality......just some thoughts.
Just another point...Jeff forgives Andrew and is kind and compassionate to him and is cold, rude and overbearing to the one he loves. That tells me that he is ready to get rid of Gage.
Wow! Gage got an eye-opener about how Jeff views Gage's place in the relationship. Not an equal partner or sure. For Jeff it seems, that because it is his business and his money, then it follows that he has all the say. I feel bad for Gage. He now realizes that in this relationship his dreams will not be realized. His views and fellings will be trod on. I hope Gage has money of his own and is not dependent on Jeff for support. This relationship can not be successful with one dominant and the other beat down. Get out while you can, Gage.
I really love the back splash in Spring Oaks! We are doing a remodel in our kitchen can I please get the name of the kitchen back splash in Spring Oaks? Thank You!
Please, go be a housewife! You're a hoot. They desperately need someone with your Beauty, humor and humility. I'm serious. Get married, move to the city You want to live in, and get ol Cohen to Make you a housewife. They are seriously Lacking in wit. Give 'em a dose. Happy trails!
I was disappointed with the way Jeff handled purchasing the newest house and putting the one that was their shared dream on the back burner. He emerged as supreme ruler whose decree shall be law. But there was no spot for a relationship in all of that. Poor Gage felt that sharp slap to his brain that was telling him how little his input, wishes, concerns, matter. In a few short minutes, he realized that Jeff doesn't want what he thought they jointly saw as their future. I could see that he was totally lost as to where his future will send him. And he was wondering who that was in Jeff's body. It wasn't the man he thought he was. It's obvious that Jeff, with his mandates that "must" be done, has little to do with a real relationship
Shared decisions to meet the needs of both people. Concern over what your partner feels or wants. Those are alien thoughts to Jeff. Poor Gage is smart enough to know it's not what he thought. He wants kids and love and someone who cares what he thinks. He'll be leaving.
With Grandma's house, seems that she's not allowed to have anything with an attachment.... a dear friend gave it to her, a friend painted it for her, a friend or relative wanted her to have it.... those are the things that people keep because they feel the love that the giver was sending to them. It just seems that Jeff doesn't operate that way. Maybe no friends give him things for his homes. Or maybe he just doesn't feel the attachment. But Granny should be able to hold on to some memories.
It all seems so cold and unfeeling. Nothing personal, huh? I'm disappointed. I was even wondering if the dreaded head swell of tv had finally made Jeff insane. I'm still not sure, but I hope Gage has a good future. Good luck.
