I was happy to hear that Flipping Out’s regular night will be Thursdays. On the other hand that is live eviction night for Big Brother and tonight was a super good episode so I got all caught up in the lives feeds. So, Flipping Out recaps won’t ever be right after the show ends like most Real Housewives recaps.
Zoila has been promoted to house manager. This is sort of an honorary promotion because all the cleaning is getting to be too much for Zoila. Jeff loves Zoila like his mother and she will be living with him forever. He situation with Jeff is much tighter than Gage’s actually. I totally forgot to include in my WWHL recap that a caller asked about wedding plans for Jeff and Gage. Jeff said they were not in a hurry to get married; however, his attorney recently informed him that in California they have been living together long enough for Gage to get palimony so now he thinks he should get a pre-nup and get married. Zoila doesn’t want to piss off the workers by telling them what to do. Since when?
Jeff does what Zoila didn’t want to do and walks around telling all the workers “todo limpio” which he says means clean up everything. He says this eleventy billion times. Zoila does take over once he leaves. Then she tells the new young girl to say it and she doesn’t want to. She’s afraid it will be insulting. Pretty much the same way Zoila felt. Yet Zoila doesn’t like the new girl.
Well this is new and exciting. We haven’t seen much of Jenni’s life after her breakup (divorce?) in the early seasons. Now that she is happily married to a hot surgeon with a kid, cameras are back in her home. Alianna is so big! Where does the time go? She’s so adorbs. And quite the handful. As Jenni says, Jeff prepared her well for tantrums and button pushing.
Kelly is the owner of this property who is six months pregnant. It seems that this is just an interior design job for someone he is old friends with. I love this house. It’s more in the traditional style. I hope Jeff doesn’t modern it up.
Kelly is having twins a boy and a girl. Jeff helps her pick out a color for the nursery with is stocked to the gills already with rich people baby clothes. There is a rack of pretty pink things and a rack of lovely blue things. So they pick a “gender queer” (don’t ask) gray. Which is Jeff’s favorite color.
It’s embryo implantation day and Jeff and Gage are headed to Orange County to be with the surrogate. Jeff is nervous so he is taking it out on Gage on the drive down complaining about his driving. Why is Gage driving?
I am SHOCKED they picked the first surrogate they interviewed. I would have expected them to interview the entire population of California and ranked them all and had lots of color coded data analysis.
So they implant #14, who looks cute already right? Jeff and Gage are worried they will mix up the embryos. Oh, Jeff is just trying to freak Gage out. But during the implantation, both of them are dead silent and nervously on their phones. It seemed like it took forever, but everything went okay. They will know if the embryo attached in two weeks. Gage drove more carefully on the way home. They are both so adorable. After dropping the surrogate off they are awed by the fact she is carrying their baby. They are terrified of getting their hopes up. If it doesn’t it will hurt too much. Jeff is going to be terrified until someone hands him the baby. And then he is going to be even more terrified.
Since the boys are off impregnating the surrogate, Jenni is on her own to meet with Mary about the remodel. Jenni has her first parent teacher conference today and got to the site early to do the pre demo work of removing appliances and some electrical. As
scripting luck would have it, the crew they hired didn’t have a ladder tall enough to get up to the very high ceiling to remove a chandelier. They go off to Home Depot to get one and now they are behind schedule. Oh the drama! To top it all off they got an extension ladder that was basically unsupported. So the mission really should be aborted in my opinion. And yet, they press on. If I were the home owner, I would never allow this. But somehow they pull it off.
Jenni dashes off to her parent conference. But she gets caught in traffic. She manages to text ahead and they wait for her despite being 45 minutes late. Basically, she a very smart little girl who bosses the other kids around. Jenni is so sweet. That little girl is going to grow up to be a BOSS.
This was a cute episode.
