While chatting with Andy Cohen on his Sirius XM show, Jeff Lewis Live, Jeff spoke about his relationship with his former co-worker and friend, Jenni. He also revealed why the cancelation of Flipping Out was for the best before dishing on his current status with Zoila Chavez.
“I didn’t fire you actually,” Andy replied. “I had nothing to do with your show not getting picked up. I don’t work at Bravo anymore… I’m a paid employee as an on-air talent. I do not run programming.”
According to Jeff, Bravo’s decision against renewing his Flipping Out contract was actually a “blessing in disguise.”
“I’m so glad that we weren’t filming the last year because I was circling the drain. I was in such bad shape,” he admitted. “It just would not have been good for me, Gage, or the baby. It’s a blessing that I didn’t film.”
As fans well know, Jeff went through a messy split with Gage Edwards earlier this year and has been feuding with his former partner on and off ever since.
“Jenni is the beginning of your downfall, then Gage, then whatever else,” Andy suspected.
“My grandmother died. My dog died. Every terrible thing happened to me,” Jeff agreed.
Although Jeff and Jenni weren’t in a good place when filming on Flipping Out concluded after the show’s 11th season and have been unable to make amends since, Jeff hinted that a future reconciliation is very much possible, especially now that he’s apologized for his role in their feud.
“I do believe there will be a reconciliation with Jenni and the reason I know that is the person that cuts my hair, cuts Jenni’s hair, and I’ve been hearing things through her like she’s ready to accept a phone call. And I do apologize for my role. Absolutely,” he explained.
As for his relationship with Zoila, Jeff said things are “all good” and noted that Zoila was present when his daughter Monroe celebrated her birthday.
“You know that Zoila and I reconciled. It was amazing. It’s amazing. Everything is all good with she and I. She loves me,” he said.
