Rishi from HM Event Design is calm and has everything under control

The decor thanks to Jeff, HMR Designs, and Chad Jackson is stunning!

Marrying Jonathan changes so many things

Jenni discusses her return to the HR nightmare that Jeff's office had become.


At Gramercy Jeff says "Jenni can scan" when no one else can.
I guess I'm missed.
Megan forgets Chaz's file.
"Think I'd rather have that pregnant girl back." 
Jeff and Megan's car conversation
Makes me believe.
I guess I'm missed.

Chaz's La Mirada remodel has a tight, no-nonsense budget.
Termites and water damage add to the challenge.

Andy gets some tough love with a reminder…
Do not double park your car in the street with the keys inside.

Citrus, Jeff's rental property, is a lesson for Megan in Jeff Lewis Property Management.
I bet she does not think it involves hands-on trash can super skills.
"If we're at a job site and something needs to be done, Jenni and I just get our hands dirty and we do it."
I guess I'm missed.
I have major dumpster skills, so smelly trash cans are no biggie. Megan thinks being an assistant is a little bit of a step backwards for her.
As Jeff's assistant I have had to happily go backward and forward.

Remodeling Jeff's client Kelly's house cost more than expected.
Jeff takes Kelly shopping at Living Spaces for great finds at a reasonable price.

I return to Gramercy with baby pictures for a cocktail hour to celebrate Megan's birthday. Andy makes sure it is Rated X, and as HR I throw my hands in the air.
Zoila gives herself a suggestive chest rub and has concern about "goes boom."
Zoila has been kidnapped by the inappropriate aliens.

Kelly's renovation is complete and the team places furniture and accessories.
Jeff"s long friendship with Kelly gives this job added importance.
After her birthday night date, Megan is hung over and horizontal on the job.

Kelly moved into her boyfriend's home which has been remodeled and redecorated.
Now it is their home and they are beyond thrilled.
Another win for Jeff Lewis Design!

Jeff and being late do not mix.
Megan has a packed freeway highlighting her scheduling error.
At La Mirada they are not happy about the half hour delay.
Chaz's business manager, Nuria, is not a Jeff fan and keeps a tight fist on the numbers. Megan is having trouble filling in for me -- she calls it "daunting."
Jeff is on Megan error overload.The office can be an oversized playpen.
Computerized insults and a vocabulary list of computer speak that would be hot fun if you're ten are hurled.

Jeff's budget for La Mirada will have Chaz's business manager in explode mode.
Great FYI: clear communication with your contractor is a must.
Change orders are cash cows, so clarity is king.

Megan is doing her best balancing the work and mommy "hood."
She has not one but two at home.
Three full time jobs.
Jeff tells Megan, "No texting your nanny…it's constant."

Jeff and I have a Japanese lunch.
Jeff wants me back ASAP.
He missed me, he really missed me.
I told him the office atmosphere is over the edge.
Back on track has to be the writing on this office wall.
My Jeff Lewis Design Cleanse is now over, and I am officially back to work.
To make my position clear Buzz Kill 101 is what I want on my t-shirt.

With client Chaz we are talking toilets.
Massaging someone for a deal is all in a day's work.
When the numbers are great, I give hugs.

Jeff says I am a prank suppressor and calls me "mom."
What boss thinks putting a small snake in Andy's shirt is a plan?
Andy nearly falls in the pool and as HR I am at a total loss.
What alternate universe have I returned to?

Nuria, Chaz's business manager, and Jeff have a numbers smack-down.
Jeff does not like to be beaten up over money.
"I like his old business manager better" is Jeff's exit line.NEXT WEEK ON FLIPPING OUT
Things are totally out of control.
What to do?
Dr. Donna to the rescue!
