'Flipping Out' star Jeff Lewis doesn't like NeNe Leakes getting 'a little dirty'

"Flipping Out" star Jeff Lewis is actually an avid "Real Housewives" viewer. As reported by RumorFix on Thursday, March 6, during Jeff's appearance on the "Wendy Williams Show" Thursday, he gave his opinion on NeNe Leakes being on "Dancing With The Stars."

Jeff said that he's glad that the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star has been given the big opportunity. He much prefers the classier NeNe to the NeNe that people are seeing now.

"I'm actually very happy that she has this gig ['DWTS'] because I feel like last season, this last season that we're watching right now, I feel like she has kinda regressed, taken a step backwards. I feel like she's getting a little dirty...last season I felt like she kinda stayed away from the drama where now she's really stirring it up," he told Wendy.

The fight that broke out during NeNe's pajama party was definitely not something Jeff wanted to see.

“I felt like this has gone too far. I don’t mind flipping tables, I don’t mind screaming at each other, but when they start breaking ribs I was like … ew … this is a line," he said.

Jeff, whose show "Flipping Out" returned for its seventh season on Wednesday, is such a "Real Housewives" fan that he even recruited two housewives for his media campaign against American Airlines after the airline lost his luggage. He joked that NeNe's co-star Phaedra Parks was representing him in his case against the airline and that the airline detained New Jersey housewife Dina Manzo, who was traveling with him, at the airport once in retaliation.
