‘Flipping Out’ Star, Jeff Lewis Says He Reunited with Zoila Chavez

Fans aren’t able to keep up with Jeff Lewis anymore through the show Flipping Out. However, he is keeping them updated through his radio show.

That includes him giving the details about his split with Gage Edward. He has also opened up about one person in his life that has stayed around.

That is Zoila Chavez who was on the show and worked for him for years. Find out what he said about seeing her again recently and more.

Chavez worked as Lewis’ housekeeper for 18 years. She then decided to retire in 2017, and Lewis talked about how hard it was for him.

It’s been kind of rough,” admitted Jeff Lewis to People. “I’m happy for her new life, but of course we were sad over here and we miss her.” He also talked about having her around soon after the birth of his daughter, Monroe.

“Zoila retired about three months ago,” continued Lewis. “She stayed the first six months we had the baby, which is amazing. You know, she’s wanted to retire for two years now, and she’s been with me for 18 years. I just begged her, begged her, begged her — ‘Please stay. I need help with the baby. I need help with this transition.’ And she stayed as long as she could.”

He claimed they were still keeping in touch through texting. Who is working for Lewis now?

Lewis hired her sister

The interior designer finds it hard to keep a team that he likes. So it’s probably not that surprising that he found someone close to Chavez after she left.

“Her sister works for me now,” he revealed on Jeff Lewis Live, according to People. He claimed that his former housekeeper has been spending time both in the states and Nicaragua.

“It’s funny, I was just talking to her sister because I haven’t seen her in a while,” he said at the time. “I want her to come by and see the baby.”

He said she came to his daughter’s birthday party


The reality star gave a big update on his life on Jeff Lewis Live. He talked about reuniting with Chavez at a small gathering he had for Monroe’s birthday.

“She was there the entire day,” he said according to People. “It was so fun.” He said they were together at the Peppa Pig bouncy house for the event when they were cracking jokes.

“I was reading all the rules. Like, ‘You have to take off your shoes, you can’t wear jewelry,’” he said. “And it said, ‘No medical conditions.’ So I’m like, ‘Zoila, no medical conditions.’ She’s like, ‘Oh, too bad, I’m pregnant.’”

He added, “I just forgot how funny she is” and “I forgot why I love this woman so much. She’s too fun.”

It sounds like they had a good time together. Lewis isn’t on good terms with everyone from the show. He ended last season feuding with Jenni Pulos and is now separated from Edward.
