While on the show this Monday, September 30, the stars aired their grievances, talking about Cohen’s crush on Gage Edward, and about Lewis’s uneventful reaction to the Bravo host’s baby news.
“You used to joke a lot about wanting to date Gage,” Lewis, 49, began, talking about his ex, with whom he shares2-year-old daughter Monroe.
“I know and I stopped the second you broke up,” Cohen, 51, said.
“You actually did not, you kept going with it. And you said it recently,” Lewis replied, recalling the Radio Andy event during which Cohen reportedly snubbed him.
“You did mention something about bringing Gage and that did hurt my feelings,” he said.
“Oh, I’m sorry,” Cohen said.
“You know it was different when we were dating and you would joke, but now that we’re not together and it was a tough breakup… So I just wanted to say that I’d prefer you not to say that again,” Lewis concluded.
“It’s not like I’ve ever DMd Gage or tried to make anything happen,” Cohen replied, still defending himself.
“No, no, I know that it is a joke. But after someone breaks up, it’s no longer a joke,” Lewis said.
“It would certainly be no longer be a joke if I actually followed through on it. I mean that would be diabolical, wouldn’t you say?” Cohen teased.
RadarOnline.com readers know the Flipping Out stars announced their separation this January 31 during an episode of Lewis’s Sirius XM radio show Jeff Lewis Live. The real estate investor and interior designer revealed that his longtime partner had already moved out of the couple’s home and begun seeing someone else!
After coming to the agreement that Cohen would not message Edward, 31, or joke again about wanting to date him, he and Lewis moved on to another topic: this time, one that bothered Cohen.
“I thought it was odd that I never heard from you after the birth of my child,” he admitted.
“Are you kidding?” Lewis asked. “I even asked about sending a gift and you said ‘Don’t send me a gift because I’ve received thousands of gifts.’”
“You didn’t reach out,” Cohen assured. “Look at our text history.”
“I’m so sorry but you always were in my thoughts and I did ask to send a gift, and I apologize,” Lewis said before revealing what really happened.
“Ok I’m gonna be honest with you,” he said. “I was a little shocked when I found out you had a baby. You were kind of the last person on Earth that I thought, at this stage, would have a child.”
When Cohen asked Lewis if he was offended he didn’t tell him about his child before the birth, Lewis said no.
“I was just surprised you were having a child because I feel like doing it on your own is so brave and it’s not something I ever would’ve been able to do on my own,” he said. “So even though my relationship now is just crashed and burned, I never would’ve had Monroe if Gage wasn’t by my side.”
Lewis added that now that he and Edward are co-parenting, he has had to leave behind his “fun dad” role to be a more full parent — and that includes disciplining his daughter. “I’m not her best friend anymore,” he said.
