Jeff Lewis debuts on Bravo’s “Interior Therapy” tonight; Find out how camera impact life with his boyfriend

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-j72oQl2xvyY/TgUJHYgmQ9I/AAAAAAAAEm8/uwypx-wvFB8/s1600/flipping-out-season-5-bios.jpgIf you are a fan of the Bravo series Flipping Out starring Jeff Lewis, then you will definitely want to check out his new series, Interior Therapy, which debuts tonight.

Everyone’s favorite obsessive-compulsive house-flipper is now moving in with his clients. He and business partner Jenni Pulos move into someone else’s home and Jeff does what he does best — he judges their flaws and redesigns their space.

During a conference call with reporters last week, I asked Jeff how the cameras have impacted his relationship with his boyfriend, Gage Edward, who also appears on the show:

“Well I think – you know, I think what the cameras do is obviously it puts a magnifying glass on your life and your relationship, and I think that we started off with a very, very strong foundation,” Jeff said.  “Gage and I dated for at least a year, year and a half before we even brought him on camera. So we always – we had a very kind of strong relationship before we entered this.”

“That said, it has brought a lot of stress because you know Gage wasn’t always depicted favorably last season of Flipping Out, and that was really hard on him because he really is a really good, nice person. He does have my back. He is very, very professional in a sense of he’s protecting my business. And when we had to let go of a few people last season, you know it wasn’t that it was – it wasn’t ultimately Gage’s decision; it was mine. But he did present the information, and as a result he took the heat for that.”

Jeff added: “We got a lot of very, very upsetting, nasty blogs, reviews, emails, and that was hard on him. For somebody who’s been you know under the radar for so long.”

    Missed ‘the Jeff personality punch’ from his previous Bravo…after viewing this first show I doubt I will watch again.

  2. this show has been deleted from my tivo. lousy compared to the initial series

  3. Jeff & Jenni, I think your new show is fun and will do just as well as your last one!!

  4. The first show seemed a little lukewarm, but that’s probably because we were expecting something similar to Flipping Out.

    Now that we’ve seen the second episode, it’s all coming together nicely and the new format is interesting. Jeff and Jenni both seem to be having fun, and as a result that makes the show fun for the viewer.

    Having Jenni and Zoila is like keeping the family together and hopefully we will soon get to see Gage in some of the episodes.

    Keep up the good work, Jeff! It’s great to see you all again.

    Remembering when I first watched “Flipping Out”, I found Jeff to be heartless, but his outrageously, humorous personality drew me to watch more. Even though the method of operations has changed, I feel jeff’s new show will be a success due to the staff he chose to keep (everyone knows that slackers can take a business down) and his interesting personality.

  6. After watching the second episode of the new show, something’s missing. I enjoyed Jeff’s own home as a part of the show with Zoila working and the banter back and forth, the dogs, etc. Flipping Out was always a must see for me, the new show–not so much. I’m not ready to cross it off my list yet but it definitely needs help.

  7. Being an architect and builder, I used to enjoy Flipping Out so much!! Not only it had a lot of excitement because of the very different characters, but it was reason a great show to watch the entire process of a construction/renovation project from beginning to end, the relationships with different clients, employees, sub contractors, etc. It was an all-in-one show, very well put together. I was really hoping for Interior Therapy to be at least as good as Flipping Out, but unfortunately it lacks so much to make it truly interesting. Flipping Out was very unique show, Interior Therapy feels just like another HGTV renovation show. I wish Bravo can continue with Flipping Out and just forget about Interior Therapy! I don’t think it will last, they really dropped the ball.

  8. I absolutely LOVE the new show! And, I’ve suggested it to three of my friends THEY love it too!! Don’t want it to end!!
