Jeff Lewis is really flipping out now.
With a brand new baby, a full roster of high-maintenance clients and a multitude of home renovations to head up, the famously volatile house flipper is facing his toughest juggling act yet in the tenth season of his Bravo series. And even Zoila’s fabulous dance moves can’t calm the beast within.
The arrival of Lewis and partner Gage Edward’ daughter, Monroe, born via surrogate, brings joy to the clan, the realities of life with a newborn quickly take their toll on the couple.
“That first night she came home and she screamed, that started the next three months of ‘holy s—, what did we do?’” Edward says.
A series of passive aggressive Post-It notes, verbal spats and jabs about becoming “a single dad” hint at problems that go deeper than Lewis’ usual fiery temperament.
“I thought about going to see an attorney and just preparing myself,” he admits. “If this gets worse, and I don’t want to do this anymore, what does that look like?”
