For some reason, Flipping Out did not record for me this week. Of all the weeks for this to happen it had to happen on Versailles week. I’m going to try to recap from On Demand but it isn’t really possible to pause with Bravo On Demand so this will probably be short.
The nanny situation is starting to calm down after going through seven nannies. They seem to really like Gema. I’ve seen the titles to the next two episode and it does not last. Gema is obsessed with Gage. Like in a sexual harassment kind of way.
Old Hollywood seriously looks like it was a tear down. That is just so much work. Jeff actually wants to move into Old Hollywood when it is finished. Just the thought of moving, and I’ve been thinking about it a lot, gives me anxiety. I am having a mild panic attack just typing that. I am not sure how these people do it. I am also irritated that I am going to have to watch all 20 minutes worth of commercials in order to watch this show.
Jeff is preparing for the trip to Versailles with Jenni, Meghan and Gage. Jeff is not charging for the consult and Gage thinks that is ridiculous. So do I. Jenni’s doctor doesn’t recommend that Jenni go to Florida because of the Zika virus. She is going, she is just going to wear long sleeves.
It’s time for Monroe’s six month checkup. She seem to have gotten through her colicky phase and she really likes Gema, the new nanny. She did not like getting a shot.
This is the first time both dads have left Monroe. It’s a two night trip and I already predict they will come home early. Speaking of anxiety, there was a full five-minute scene of them trying to find a place to park the car at the airport.
OMG, the crew arrives at Jackie’s house that she lives in. It is crammed full of crap. Like dead dog parts. And a collection of sex toys that require an entire room. There is also a zoo where they kill the alligators for purses and belts. I am not making any of this up. In fact, I just hit the highlights because I could not pause the tape.
Back at home, Gema is keeping Monroe fed and happy.
We finally get to Versailles. It’s so big, if the wanted to go in every room each day it would literally take them hours to do it. It’s like an entire city in a building. Jackie’s husband David has done several bathrooms without Jackie knowing. They are fugly. So are most of the finishes that they have selected. Jackie, David, and Lea Black go to dinner with the Flipping Out crew. David is very attracted to Lea. David ignores everyone to flirt with Lea the entire time.
Jeff tells David that the bathrooms are hideous. Actually, he threw Meghan under the bus and told David she said they looked like the Best Western. David’s reply was, “You’re wearing out your welcome.” David says he just used whatever was lying around in the warehouse. David seemed to lighten up and he’s willing to listen to Jeff’s ideas.
The next day they head to the warehouse where they store furniture and antiques that they want to put in the giant house. Jeff is wigging out because of all the clutter. There is millions of dollars of crap in there. It’s weird rich people hoarding.
The crew and Jackie go to lunch. Jackie tells Lea that David was very enamored with her. Then David walks in. David hits on Meghan. He’s a dirty old man. Jeff tells Jackie and David he cannot take the job. He just isn’t the right fit for Versailles. He doesn’t do gaudy.
After lunch, Meghan suggests they go to Sea World. Jeff thinks that is a fine idea. He’s depressed and needs to pet some dolphins.
Next Week: Gema starts deliberately blocking the nanny cam that the two dads check obsessively. Sigh, it was fun while it lasted.
