My Wedding Heaven Meets Jeff's Cash Calculations

Jenni Pulos thinks Jeff may have forgotten whose wedding it is.

Jeff admits his sport of choice is pushing peoples’ buttons.

Zoila’s Lupe button gets pushed over and over.

Jeanne’s Mulholland to do list is being expanded in major ways.

Jeff’s talk of rug and house purchases has Gage wanting new rules.

Zoila gets to watch Jeff give her dusting lessons.

Jeff’s buttons are burning bright hot with all that surrounds my wedding.

Gramercy is very demanding and expensive; Jeff seems to be getting bored with it all.

His Gramercy button’s hot when a car does serious damage to an outer wall.

The driver of the car did not leave a note, so Jeff writes yet another check. Writing all the checks Jeff does must be stressful so…he is exploding over my wedding expenses!

Every part of my big, Greek, American wedding is driving him over the edge.

He screams, “I am burning money!”

Doesn’t every girl want a water wall at the reception?

I am thinking former birthday party clown pays lots of people for their services.

I get my dream wedding and lots of people get jobs and checks…sounds good to me.

Jeff says it is his my day and does not want me having what I want to ruin it...for him.

I want bacon. I get bacon.

Food tasting has Jeff in calculator overdrive.

Whose wedding is this anyway? I am grateful to every person to whom I wrote a check.

Heartfelt thanks to the incredible Chad Jackson and Bob and Rishi at HM Designs (Heffernan Morgan).

These guys know how to make a girl’s dream come true.

Jonathan’s beautiful sister modeled her bridesmaid dress for us.

She and eight others will be lovely in the wedding.

Jeff encourages Andy to model one of the dresses.

Toss up as to what is scarier -- Andy’s Chicago driving or the above.

I am focused on my future husband and our families celebrating.

Jeff is focused and really spinning on how much it will all cost.

Here we just see things very differently.

While we are in Chicago, Gage is keeping LA moving along.

Jeanne from Mulholland gives Gramercy needed cred with her approval.

Jeff may have rekindled house love.

Jonathan, I love you, and I want our day to be something we cherish forever.

Next week tune in to see who exactly is crying (or is Andy crying by himself?).

Jenni: "Crab Meat is Flying!"

Jenni dishes on the Lewis family food fight and the session with Dr. Donna.

THERE'S A NEW JENNI IN TOWN

At Gramercy Jeff is having naughty night nurse fantasies...
…about who is at my house, which he is happily sharing with the office.
The present state of my private parts is a cheery office topic.
No, no, and NO!
I am serving notice -- there is a new Jenni in town.
The out of control office antics have given a stern face to HR.

Jeff's paint line is flying off the shelves
Will more workers be needed at Jeff Lewis Design?

Lisa and Gary's Calabasas landscaping is a multiple choice challenge.
People need to agree.
Lisa wants us out, but we have plants to place, then plants to move, see the vision, and place somewhere else.
It's all about being specific.
Phase 2, which Lisa said would never happen…
Never say never.
We love you, Lisa!

Jeff doesn't stop encouraging Zoila to twerk at Gramercy. 
He also comments on my current size, shape, and choice of outfit.
Jeffrey is expanding into the area of fashion consultant.
I love my belt, Jeffrey.Chaz Dean's remodel at La Mirada needs to be cold.
The budget for this job is frozen.
Mark the contractor however is feeling the heat.

Andrew is put in charge of applying the "get it done now" pressure.
At La Mirada he finds the contractor MIA and the workers MIA.
Andy hopes this challenge will reveal his managerial skill set.

Jeff wants to take over the decisions regarding Lisa's landscaping.
This Calabasas job needs to be done ASAP.
Vanina's "I bought 'em for her" Double Ds are shared with Lisa.
My HR self is now in full fail zone.

Gramercy is keeping new hire Katrina busy with the paint line.
The work load is huge and she needs help.
Gage likes the good stress of it all.

Scott, Jeff's attorney, plans a big dinner for Jeff's dad's birthday.
He has been Tom's attorney for 30 years.
Jeff thinks a booze cruise around the harbor sounds like a plan.
Newport Beach are you ready for us?
A small problem due to someone's lack of nautical skills…
The boats have escaped!
Jeff blames his lack of censor on his family's standard of behavior.
Two boats and a food fight are their way to party hearty.
Crab meat is flying!
Yes, that is me (now a momma) throwing food and having fun misbehaving.
Even the HR "buzzkill" needs an outlet.
There goes my Mom off camera running to church to light some large candles.
Praying for me that maturity is better late than never.
Andy is now instructed by Jeff to be contractor Mark's worst nightmare.
"I'll crack your balls" is Andy's idea of in charge speak.

Gramercy welcomes new intern Romy to help Katrina.
Hope she is a survivor in Jeff Lewis Design's world of cray cray.
Gage thinks the toilet rules may be a cause for no return.

Mark's young son is visiting the La Mirada job site.
Will he need therapy after watching Andy in full managerial mode? 

Jeff and I interview potential remodel clients in Westwood.
Nikki and Robbie are both dentists and reluctantly agree when Jeff talks price.
The hard, cold, cash, remodel facts can be a dream buster.
Jeff is just the messenger, and it's not always fun. 

Andy is trying to break the new intern.
He wants her gone.
I read Jeff a list with the requirements for successful leaders.
The harsh reality is adult behavior will now be required.

On the La Mirada job site my limits are tested.
You do what you have to do.
Hand washing and dedication are the name of the game.Jeff thinks Andy's babysitting Mark has done the trick and things are moving.
Romy our newbie quit -- she lasted one day.
Everyone does not think it's a beautiful day at Jeff Lewis' office.
Honestly, HR is seriously concerned about the current office atmosphere.

Chaz does a check it out walk through at La Mirada.
Andy gets applause, Jeff is thrilled.

Gramercy is group focused ordering Jeff's undies online.
Jeff thinks his old ones will be a fun face mask for Megan.
She loudly disagrees while ripping them off -- I write Jeff up.
Jeff is informed that his idea of joking is abusive by Dr. Donna his therapist.
We need her help to get the office behavior in sync with sanity.
Dr. Donna tells Jeff he is the leader and needs to set an example.
She tells me to be comfortable stating, "Get out!"
I can do this, Deb to the rescue.
There's a new Jenni at Jeff Lewis Design.
New rules, new day.
NEXT WEEK ON FLIPPING OUT
Zoila reads her list of complaints: "Please don't call me fat piggy."
Andrew needs to remove the porno he's sharing from his iPad.
Oh no they didn't.
