Jeff Lewis, (Washington Examiner) — LOS ANGELES – Jeff Lewis is not like his fellow reality.
Obsessive-compulsive star of “flipping” is a kind of black sheep among Bravolebrities. It’s not as fabulous as “The Real Housewives” or as elegant as the fashion of “The Rachel Zoe Project” and his mouth is less refined than any chef “Top”. (The Feast of McNuggets fourth season premiere on Tuesday.)
Although most of the factory gears Bravo reality drama pop-up evenly on blogs and gossip pages of tabloid magazines between offices on Jennifer Aniston and Kardashians, the real estate investor and designer sharp tongue has rarely received much attention from the addition of a star of the reality of your resume four years ago.
“I do not want,” he says. “There are red carpet events could go to every night. I have not got that kind of time. I am very focused. The purpose of all this for me, of course, is another revenue stream, but you know what? I am also building a business. I have to make money. I’m not just some rich socialite. ”
As a man neat-freak in the main series, Lewis has become infamous for his tantrums and blows monster sarcasm, usually aimed at women on the right silly, Jenni Pulos. It seems self-conscious, however, and probably is not completely delusional nut job than last season’s average of 1.27 million viewers came to love and / or hate.
“Do not tell anyone because it will ruin my reputation, but every Sunday I’m down visiting my grandmother,” she says during a recent interview over breakfast at a cafe in Hollywood. “I take care of it. I remodel your home. I bought a car. I’m going down there and take out your trash and make sure you have grocery stores.”
With the “flip” it seems, has helped as much as damage to the manic 40-year-old Lewis, who once asked to bring a drink Pulos ideally composed of “Lemonade 70 percent, 20 percent punch fruit and Sprite 10 percent. “Pulos Lewis acknowledges that he has learned about himself in the study of their behavior on television.
“I think he looked and said, ‘I do not like my behavior. I do not like how I’m going to blind rage. I do not like certain things I do,” she says. “For him, came out in therapy – what now? – 30 total hours of his life. I know, for me, has been rare when you see your own life published in this package.”
For Lewis, the subject of a reality show has come with costs. His relationship with Ryan Brown, ex-boyfriend Lewis and partner, ended last year after he was accused of diverting customers online. Lewis also reveals a four-year relationship was kept out of camera for the first two seasons ended because of the exposure.
“I think he was really ashamed that I did the show,” he says. “I think the day she bought, the relationship changed and went downhill. I believe that, especially after a season when he got a lot of criticism and not everyone understands me, I think it was really embarrassed. It was not than originally contracted. ”
Since last season, which largely focused on Lewis rebuilding his business after the housing bubble popped in the face, which is stationed by his fame in a booming business. The increased workload means more responsibilities for the housekeeper Zoila Chavez, assistant house design Jett Sara Rose and associates Lenhoff Berkman and Trace.
“Last season, I was stressed because I had nothing,” says Lewis. “This season is the opposite. Once we realized the website, people were able to find me, and grew the business. The problem became managing the onslaught of business because they wanted to turn anyone down. In turn, I took too much. ”
Lewis, who launched a line of home accessories QVC earlier this year, says viewers can expect more outbreaks in the fourth season, but not life-altering tragedies like divorce Pulos “or the break with Brown. In As for another chapter is, Lewis says he is committed to a fifth season, but is not sure how long it can keep “flipping.”
“I do not know after that,” he says. “It takes a lot to me. Really. Personally, I feel that I am healthy and I feel like I can get healthier, not that I would be less interesting, but I do not know if I would be interested in me. When I was at the limit crazy, I think it was a pretty good bet. “
