After a longgg three-year hiatus from the television screen, Jeff Lewis, 52, and his interior design talents are back with a new reality TV series, Hollywood Houselift with Jeff Lewis. The interior designer famous for his work on Flipping Out is back in action, and this time, he's focusing his talents on the homes of your favorite celebs.
The show airs tonight on Freevee (Amazon's free streaming service) with three episodes to get you properly hooked. New episodes will be posted every Friday.
As we wait with bated breath for this new show, it’s hard to deny all of the questions leftover from the past. Number one: Where in the world does Jeff stand with Jenni Pulos after the emotional series finale of Flipping Out?
Three years is a long time, Jeff, and I need answers.
Here is everything you need to know about Jeff Lewis’s been up to before you binge his new series tonight.
Are Jeff Lewis and Jenni still friends?
Jeff’s previous show ended after he fired his long-time friend and co-worker, Jenni Pulos. Following an on-screen dispute over the sacrifices Jenni had made for the company, Jeff said that he made his decision because he felt like he was holding her back from her acting career.
He also said that he needed to grow his business—and only wanted to employ people who are 100% committed to design, People reported.
Jenni’s response was heartbreaking. “Ok,” she responded to Jeff.
“I thought we were having lunch to discuss what had happened and decide how to regroup," she said in one of the show's final interviews. "I didn't realize my future at Jeff Lewis Design was over."
With tears in her eyes, she continued: “Some people come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. I thought it was gonna be a lifetime, but I'm grateful to him for so many things," she said on Flipping Out.
Jeff reportedly reached out to Jenni in early 2020.
"Hi, Happy New Year. I hope you and your family are happy and healthy. Would you be open to meeting with me sometime? I don’t feel good about what happened between us and I’m very sorry for my role in it," he wrote, according to People.
Jenni never responded.
Does Jeff have a new show?
On tonight's premiere episode of Hollywood Houselift with Jeff Lewis (streaming on Amazon Freevee, the new name for IMDb TV), Wilmer Valderrama invites viewers behind the scenes of his home renovation.
Lewis, who also hosts Jeff Lewis Live on SiriusXM, is making his TV return by taking viewers into the homes of celebrities. Lewis, along with his radio co-host Megan Weaver, Tyler Meyerkorth, and new assistant Shane Douglas, all work together to complete one-of-a-kind renovations for celebrity clients.
Does Jeff have kids?
In the trailer for Hollywood Houselift, Jeff opens up about his family. “I spent a lot of my life thinking about myself,” Jeff said in the preview. “Being a dad changed my whole life. Almost everything I do is for my kid.”
Five-year-old Monroe Christine splits her time between her fathers, Jeff Lewis and his ex-partner Gage Edward. The two were together for 10 years before splitting up in 2019. Unfortunate for Monroe, the custody dispute over her has been long and contentious.
Jeff tried for another child, Jeff Jr., as he referred to him, via surrogacy. Sadly, the embryo transfer to surrogate did not take. Jeff opened up about the tragic news: “It was very, very disappointing,” he said. “ I was stunned because I was so convinced this was happening."
Who is Jeff dating now?
Now, Jeff is dating Chef Stuart O'Keeffe, who adorably posted a promo IG for “Hollywood Houselift” and frequents Jeff’s radio show as a guest.
What else is he doing these days?
After Flipping Out ended, Jeff focused on his radio show Jeff Lewis Live on SiriusXM. The show features guest appearances, hot takes, and uncensored opinions that tend to get him into some sticky situations.
What is his net worth?
