I had such a great time last night, and it was so fun working with Natalie Moralis who is as lovely a person as she is beautiful. (Very). It was also amazing catching up again with Connie Chung, and seeing Adrienne Maloof (and Paul Nassif).
I'm heading home tonight and will be at work first thing tomorrow, in case you're desperately needing to know my whereabouts. Tonight is the Flipping Out reunion, and I know you're going to love it. Just look how excited Jeff, Zoila, and Jenni were to be there:
OK, so they look like they're about to take a final exam or something, but I swear it was a really good show! And Gage joined us and I asked him about many viewers' perception that he's been something of a Lady Macbeth around Jeff Lewis Design. Oh, and before the show I fondled Zoila's uniform:
So there was that....
Let me know what you think of the reunion! See you in the States.
What struck me was the number of times Jeff talked about "my children," "raising my children." Where does Gage fit into this? What about "our" children?
I really thought Gage got away with MURDER on that reunion. Everyone else was held accountable to their statements and actions, both good and bad, over the course of the season. Except for Gage.. I understand that Gage is doing what is likely best for the company, etc., but there were several actions and statements on Gage's part that I thought would be called into question at the reunion. All we got was the Macbeth reference, to which Gage (and Jeff to some degree) became totally defensive, and it was as if you were not permitted to discuss Gage's public perception. Hello! You're on a TV show-and one that has been brutally honest and harsh in some ways over the years and you dont get to be asked anything? Did anyone else see it the way I did? Love Jeff--think he needs to think this one through...?
I love "Flipping Out." Jeff Lewis is so talented and refreshingly honest. He treats those who are loyal to him with utmost respect and does not tolerate those who take advantage of him and his success. Bravo for him! The relationship between him and Zoila is a kick and I absolutely adore Jenni! I'm so glad she is continuing with Jeff. They are awesome together! LOVE this show . . . wish there were more episodes!
Andy It is so good to have you back home - it seemed like you were gone forever. i continued to watch different shows on BRAVO but was always disappointed when you and your cute smile weren't on afterwards with all the goody details. Don't go away for that long ever again. Okay?
Andy, Great job on both the reunion show and the pageant! Please give us some casting news on Interior Therapy! Can't wait to see the JL crew back in action!!
Love flipping out, glad Jennie was back more. Ah...just wondering did Andy and Jeff ever have a thing? There is some kind of tension there, what is it?
I would like to know why you are so nasty towards Jeff? You are very disrespectful on all airings involving him, like you're trying to make him look bad. You look at him with daggers! what's the deal?
Flipping Out is my favorite Bravo show. I really enjoyed this reunion, especially seeing the non-verbal communication (the eyes tell more than the words do). I don't think Jeff was rough on Trace, he's following his instincts, and Trace was holding back in revealing his true intentions. During the season, I thought Gage appeared a little cagey re: people leaving, but it's obvious his goal is to make Jeff Lewis Design all it can be. I'm glad Jeff finally stood up for Jenni (to Stacy), and BRAVO to Andy for supporting Jenni's rap dreams by inquiring about Jeff's paint line. Great season, looking forward to Season 6!
Gage seems to be the cold calculating "southern bell" type with the looks of an LA skinny tall blond :-) Dangerous combination !!! He can be there for the long run and has the stamina of a marathon runner like a southern lady and at the same time, like a skinny LA tall blond, he is after a ring from a rich husband!
Jeff is loosing all control without even knowing it. Gage is like the type of women who are controlling but don't want the husband to feel that they are controlling. Women who use the pillow talk to plant the seed in their husbands head and then says that the final decision was his.
Love love love Gage! Great for Jeff, great for the show, great for JLD and amazing for the gays. You both represent so well. Kudos, seems like a crazy healthy relationship. Not enough adjectives so say how great he is. Better "find" Jenna can spot 'em!
I enjoyed the reunion last night! Zoila is my absolute favorite! Jeff Lewis is a straight to the point guy but he is often harsh, rude, and self-centered. He barely allowed anyone to answer questions directed at them and appeared extremely angry at Tracy. Tracy seemed terrified of Jeff while Sarah seemed to hold back on what her true feelings were about her termination. Jenni's speaking out more and I love it! I wish her all the best with conquering her dreams. Gage...............is rather strange and a bit suspect. The jury's still out on him! Andy, you appeared a no nonsense guy last night and not fully your perky self. I know you've had a lot going on lately and I will continue to keep you in my prayers. Keep up the good work with all of your Bravo shows! I'm sure to stayed tuned!
Seen the reunion and I thought you were a little soft on Gage! Hey what's up with letting young Trace get beat up by Jeff. So sad to watch.
I saw last night the Flipping Out Reunion. I love that show. I love all of the cast. Jeff is a little too much, (which means impossible to deal with him at times), but I adore him and I do not know why, maybe because he has a good heart. He sees his Team as though not only they work for him, but they are his Family. Tell them that I send all of you a kiss and a hug!!!!
Regads to all of you and God Bless you. Yolanda Garcia Berdecia San Juan, Puerto Rico
Its exciting time for Jeff and Gage, to start a family and be happy, possibly married, it warms my heart.
I really enjoyed the reunion show. What I found interesting was some of the communication that took place with body language and by watching people's eyes. It's apparent after what Jeff went through re: Ryan, he's not going to get fooled again, and it appears Trace did have other "designs" in mind. I had the same thoughts about Gage during the season, but I think he really was trying to make the business more profitable. Sometimes being open and honest makes you the "bad guy".
I wouldn't accuse anyone of "being fake" - I do have to say this was one of the most "real" reunion shows I've seen. It looks like everyone was being completely honest and putting it all out there. Even you, Andy, standing up for Jenni by asking Jeff about his paint line.
I know he's a client, but it would have been cool to see Chaz Dean as well.
How would you go about being on that show Interior therapy? My mom was just watching the reunion for 'Flipping Out' and I heard they come to your house and.. well make it better. I really want to sign my mom up for this; while I wont get into it here/now, shes definitely MORE then deserving of a house makeover and she would love(an understatement) to meet the Flipping Out cast and what not.
How can I find out about casting for interior therapy? Is it possible to have Jeff Lewis in Arkansas? I would love to have Andy also!!
Hi Andy - big fan of yours here - what is that pin sticking out of your ear? Spill it please...TYVM - Craig
Enquiring minds want to know what's going on w rhobh blogs. Have they been banned? Info for the fans please!
Natalie Moralis is beautiful and so smart! She speaks 5 languages. I think she could have won. And you are the man! So busy. You are a great MC! My question is are you taking the place of Regis on LIVE? I know you are in the running and you would be great.
Glad you asked about Gage. I haven't seen a comment about Gage that HASN'T been about how he's some sort of snake. Something's not right there!
