It all started when Jeff called out Andy for joking about wanting to date his ex-boyfriend Gage Edwards.
“Once in a while, you will say, you know…You used to joke a lot about wanting to date Gage,” Lewis said.
Andy replied, “I know, and I stopped the second that you broke up.”
“You actually did not,” Lewis snapped back. “You kept going with it. And actually, you said it recently.”
Over the years, Andy has often teased Jeff about having a crush on Gage. When Jeff went “Instagram official” with his new boyfriend Scott Anderson, Andy joked on his Radio Andy show that he should bring Gage as his date to an upcoming event in Los Angeles.
This joke apparently didn’t sit well with Jeff.
“You did mention something about bringing Gage, and it did hurt my feelings,” Lewis continued. “It was different when we were dating and you would joke, but now that we’re not together and it was a tough breakup — I just wanted to say that I prefer you not to say that.”
Andy apologized to Jeff and made it clear he never acted on any of his statements.
“I know that it is a joke, but after someone breaks up, it’s no longer a joke,” Lewis replied.
“Are you kidding me?” Jeff replied. “I even asked about sending a gift, and you said, ‘Absolutely don’t send me a gift, because I’ve received thousands of gifts.’”
“I definitely did not want a gift,” Andy clarified. “But you didn’t reach out. Look at our text history.”
“I am so sorry if I didn’t, but you were always in my thoughts and I did ask to send a gift… Okay, I’m going, to be honest with you, I was a little shocked when I found out you had a baby. You were kind of the last person on earth that I thought, at this stage, would have a child,” Jeff said.
Jeff found out that Andy was having a baby when the WWHL host went public with the news in December 2018. Andy wondered if Jeff was upset that he didn’t hear about it sooner and directly from him.
“I have a big mouth, I can’t keep a secret, I understand why you wouldn’t tell me,” Jeff replied. “I was just surprised you were having a child because doing it on your own is so brave, and it’s not something I ever would have been able to do on my own… I never would have had Monroe if Gage wasn’t by my side.”
This isn’t the first time Andy and Jeff have had issues. In October 2018, Bravo failed to pick up Jeff’s show Flipping Out for another season. An angry Jeff then went on a rant against Andy and Bravo on Instagram. Andy warned Jeff via text that he shouldn’t piss off Bravo if he ever hoped of working with them again. To make matters worse, Jeff read Andy’s private texts on his Jeff Lewis Live radio show. This didn’t sit well with Andy, who called Jeff an “asshole” as a result, which Jeff also revealed on his radio show – shocker.
The two made up shortly after but it seems tensions still run high between these two friends – or maybe frienemies is a better name for it!
Are you surprised Jeff was pissed at Andy for joking about dating Gage? Was Jeff wrong for not reaching out after the birth of Andy’s son? Sound off below!
