Rough Nipples, Roller-Skating, and Remodels
I might be "over sharing" talking about roughing up my nipples with Jeff. Getting ready to breast feed and dealing with breast questions is where I am now. Jeff is hearing me say "maternity leave" and I feel like the size of a hall closet -- it's a big baby.
Deb is on the phone and her down and dirty gets the job done.
Gage is now one of the gang in our main work area. A fake snake behind a pillow has Gage saying the word "butch" in reference to Andrew.
George and Monica Eads are Jeff"s new clients. He is a lead actor on the television program CSI. Their Hollywood Hills home meets Jeff Lewis Design. Jeff is having a Sally Field moment with a twist: "They need me. They really need me." Gil is our current contractor and Jeff gives the Eads his seasoned renovation 411. Jeff's business is up 200% ... 300%. "Whole house" from multiple potential clients is music to Jeff's ears. Business is booming.
La Mirada is another current project from Chaz Dean, the property adjacent to his salon.
Cat Gosselaar is a new client. Her husband is the actor Mark-Paul from Saved By the Bell…Zach! One of Jeff and I's favorite shows. This will be light remodeling in the Hollywood Hills for another mom to be. I scare Jeff with my mothering skills. How many wrong ways can you hold a baby? Let me show you.
At Gramercy Jeff Lewis Design is preparing the launch of Jeff"s paint line.We tear the Eads' house apart and the contractor is having client confabs. Jeff is thinking this contractor has business boundary issues.
Zoila informs me that when you give birth, shit happens. Referring to it as poo poo does not ease the potential harsh reality. Jeff is worried I am going to deliver during one of our drives and mess up his Mercedes.
Andrew looks for a little person to be a paint can for Jeff's paint promotion. He wanders Hollywood Boulevard. Dunn-Edwards HQ did not approve of Andrew gushing, "Do you know any little people?"
Uh oh. Jeff goes into immediate damage control. Gage now has more reason to be unimpressed with Andrew.
[video_clip_url:http://player.theplatform.com/p/PHSl-B/yT7k3t_YLXoZ/embed/select/IjRRlPVwh09w]Our client Monica takes the entire office roller skating. Andy is a rolling Richard Simmons vision. Athletic activity and this particular Andrew are not a match made in heaven. Jeff skates and builds a friendship with the Eads.
Their house is now a wooden skeleton and Jeff is putting a stop to Gil's up selling and terror tactics.
Big baby and husband stitch are car conversations. My private area is no longer private. Human Resources (me) needs to file a complaint to (me).
Contractor Gil is talking with the Eads' project accountant and Jeff says "Strike Three."
Deb talks warmly to a client.
Jeff interviews little people.
[video_clip_url:http://player.theplatform.com/p/PHSl-B/yT7k3t_YLXoZ/select/7eahRkDgv1A6?form=html]New contractor David is going to do the framing at the Eads' house and I volunteer a promise ring.
Andy and newly hired Eric will be dancing paint cans for Jeff Lewis Color.
"OMG my water broke" Jeff's heart stopped beating. Gage and I got him good!
He then talked with a psychic, who said "no heels" and that "I would fall." He mentioned chaining me to the bed. He is panicking about a Jenni-absent "office zone." Awww!
It's a beautiful day at Jeff Lewis' office.Next Week on Flipping Out:
