It's no secret that Jeff Lewis recently recruited one of Kris Jenner's assistants to come and work for him. And, boy, is the Flipping Out star happy he stole from the Jenner team. Her system of training up-and-comers might seem intense, but it shows impressive results. "I heard through the grapevine that Kris Jenner, she had a really great assistant who had been burned out," Jeff shared when he stopped by the Wendy Williams Show earlier this week. "She burns though them, she's a machine. From what I hear, she's very Devil Wears Prada, which is kind of funny." (We assume he means in her tough demeanor, not just her similarly cropped 'do.)
"I started to hear things like, they go up to her and ask a question and she'll say 'There's someone else here that can answer that question for you,'" he added. "Meaning, 'You've got to figure that out.' She teaches people to think. She works them. Look, she should run a whole training program."
Whatever Kris is doing is working and Jeff is grateful to be reaping some of the benefits. "He's amazing," Jeff said of his recent hire. "I tell Gage, my partner, let's drive by Jenner Communications and start putting our card on the windshields, I'm serious."
