The Daily Dish Flipping Out

Jeff Lewis Reunited with Zoila Chavez at Monroe’s Birthday Party and We Feel So Good

The Flipping Out designer and his former employee still have that same old magic.

Zoila Chavez Gets a Sext

Jeff Lewis recently reunited with a special someone in his life: his former housekeeper, Zoila Chavez.

How to Watch

Catch up on Flipping Out on the Bravo App.

The reunion took place at daughter Monroe's third birthday party over the weekend. “She was there the entire day. It was so fun," he confirmed on his SiriusXM show, Jeff Lewis Live, adding his longtime friend and former employee showed up to the celebration last Saturday “at 8 a.m. and was there ’til 5 p.m.”

Zoila now splits her time between her native Nicaragua and Los Angeles, where her daughter lives. Saturday's get-together marked the first time the Flipping Out designer had seen her in over a year. “I just forgot how funny she is,” he said. “I forgot why I love this woman so much. She’s too fun.”

The twosome picked up their banter pretty quickly, according to him, cracking jokes about the bouncy house rules. “I was reading all the rules. Like, ‘You have to take off your shoes, you can’t wear jewelry. 'And it said, ‘No medical conditions.’ So I’m like, ‘Zoila, no medical conditions.’ She’s like, ‘Oh, too bad, I’m pregnant,'" he shared about their joke-filled hangout.

And there was even more banter: “I was like, ‘Are you sexting?’ And she said, ‘Yeah, I’ve got a date tonight, I’m sending him pictures right now.'"

(More on Zoila and sexts, above, in case you needed more on that.)

The news of Zoila and Jeff's reunion comes after he confirmed that at some point after Zoila retired in 2017, her sister started working for him.

Jeff and Gage Edward, who split up back in January after 10 years together and are currently working out custody of their daughter, also took the time to celebrate their little girl in two equally sweet and gushing birthday tributes to the apple of their eyes.
