The back-and-forth between Flipping Out stars, Jeff Lewis and Jenni Pulos continued this week, as Bravo sets to spin the high-profile fallout. The finale episode of the design reality series will air next week, giving viewers a look into what triggered the personal/professional split. Jeff and Jenni parted ways in May.
Jenni appeared on Watch What Happens Live on Monday, and responded to Jeff accusing her of crying abuse to Bravo production.
Andy Cohen asked Jeff if he could envision renewing his collapsed friendship with Jenni, during a recent sit-down on the late night chat show.
“When someone reports you for abuse to your bosses, that’s kinda something that’s kinda hard to get over,” Jeff said to Andy.
Jenni responded to Jeff’s comment, denying his description of what went down.
“I never filed a claim, I really worked for him, we were really friends,” Jenni said. “Heartbroken about how it’s all transpired, but I wish him the best, and I always have.”
Jeff brushed off Jenni’s denials as “semantics” on a recent installment of his Sirius XM radio show, Jeff Lewis Live.
“It’s semantics at this point,” Jeff said of whether or not Jenni actually reported him to network higher-ups. “She mentioned in the article that she never made a formal complaint . . . Maybe you didn’t walk into HR with your attorney but you made accusations. And those accusations had to have been investigated.”
The future of the popular series remains uncertain, in the wake of the exposed rift. Jeff has claimed that any professional connection with Jenni is simply Bravo fakery — a claim that the mom of two denies.
You make the call — and don’t miss the season finale episode of Flipping Out , Tuesday night at 10 pm, ET, on Bravo.
