Flipping Out feud explodes!
“It is true. So, Jenni and I did have a fight, which then resulted in a rift,” he announced on his radio show Jeff Lewis Live Friday morning.
“Now we’ve been very good friends and pretty much brother and sister, I would say, for like 15-16 years. So, look, we’ve been through a lot together, and we’ve had fights before, and you know, this fight was very much like, you know, it maybe got a little more heated, but it was like the other fights. And it was really kind of silly and it was … I had offered some unsolicited career advice. That’s where it started escalating.”
Lewis and Pulos’ relationship was contentious for years, but they always worked things out. Now Lewis claims that Flipping Out might be in jeopardy after their nasty encounter.
“So we realized there are about three people in my office that really don’t wanna be there. That really shouldn’t be there. That have other objectives. … And other career goals,” he said.
“And I was actually very surprised to hear that Jenni was one of them and she said that she had given up her acting career to work for me, and that really hurt my feelings, because I felt like I have done nothing but accommodate her for her auditions and meetings and all of that.” Reality show fakery exposed!
Lewis admitted that Pulos was not his employee “for several, several seasons” and revealed, “She’s employed by Bravo, and I apologize because it is the one thing that is not authentic about this show.”
Lewis said that after a fight with Pulos he told her that she was going to be a friend on the show and not a full time “employee.”
“I was told that I was allegedly reported for abuse and victimization,” he said, revealing that she complained about him to the network.
“This fight was no different than any other fight in the last 11 years of Flipping Out. This was no different than me yelling at a contractor for being late or somebody screwing up and causing me $5,000 worth of repairs.
“On Monday she doubled down and allegedly I was reported for wrongfully terminating her off her own show. And there were also allegations of a hostile work environment, so somebody’s talking to an attorney, which scares me.”
On his radio show, Lewis said they watched the show to defend him. “My showrunner had to go frame by frame to confirm that there was no abuse. I have been cleared of all abuse, victimization charges.”
Lewis said that he was concerned about the future of Flipping Out. “She’s no longer on the show, so I would be surprised if they picked it up.”
