Flipping Out star Jeff Lewis realized the hard way his words have consequences and for him, the consequence was his two-year-old daughter Monroe getting expelled from her pre-school. On his radio show, Jeff criticized some parents whose kids also attend the private institution his daughter went to, reading internal emails from them and mocking them on-air. This week, he revealed that administrators received complaints about it and kicked his daughter out of the school. He stated, "Apparently, I've mentioned a few things about the school on air. I take full responsibility... I am really, really sorry. I feel terrible about what happened. I know how it has affected Monroe. I will never do this again. If I'm going to s**t talk, I'm going to do it off the air, obviously."
Lewis explained that he tried to apologize to the school's headmistress and get a second chance, but their decision was final. Jeff said, "I cannot believe this is the Montessori way! You don’t get to make amends. There are no second chances, no warnings — nothing. It was immediately, ‘They’re expelled.’"
The school was especially upset that Jeff "bullied" two mothers on the radio, which he denied, saying he never called anyone fat and only read emails, but apparently he also made a comment that one mother looked like a woman who would go to a key party.
Now, Jeff seems happy his daughter is no longer at the school, explaining, "I picked the wrong school. Next time, I'm going to trust my gut. I felt like the school was too regimented, too structured. I think, it's not a college prep course. It's preschool. Everyone takes themselves so seriously at that school. I think these people are arrogant, they’re pretentious… I don’t want Monroe to be in a strict school with overachievers and massive homework. She has her whole life to be stressed out. It’s preschool, let her be a kid and have fun."
He's now looking for a new school, which he revealed will be difficult since most are full and there are waiting lists for next year. Meanwhile, his ex, Monroe's other father, Gage Edward, is not happy about everything. They only recently came to a temporary custody agreement after breaking up in January following ten years together. He called Jeff "delusional" over this latest issue.
