Jenni Pulos works for Jeff Lewis, the high-end house flipper whose obsessive-compulsive behavior is chronicled again on the Bravo reality series Flipping Out. This time, the dedicated assistant isn’t afraid to let her hair down – or up!
I caught up with Jenni while she was getting fabulous by Nate at the Warren Tricomi Salon in New York City. Between pin curls, Jenni gave me the scoop on the show’s new season, including Jeff’s promise to have less flip outs in season two.
“He has mellowed down,” she shared. “He saw the first season and now is trying to become more self-aware and get better day by day. That’s the most you can ask of anybody.”
For Jeff, mellowing out means only eight to ten freak outs a day. But Jenni doesn’t mind the outbursts. “I stand up to Jeff a lot more this season, if he tries to push me around," she revealed.
Of course, if that fails, she’ll revert to her old stand-by plan. “I really care about Jeff. He’s like my brother. But I think his old habits die hard,” she confessed. “Does he really need to repeat himself or is he just trying to annoy me? Sometimes I just pretend I’m deaf and tune him out.”
Flipping Out, season two, premieres Tuesday, June 17 at 10 p.m. on Bravo.
