'Flipping Out' Lawsuit: Jeff Lewis Suing Assistant Jenni Pulos Over New Book

Someone's certainly flipping out.

After discovering that his assistant Jenni Pulos was writing a book titled "Hang in There, Baby -- What One of the World's Most Difficult Bosses Taught Me About Life, Work and Love," Jeff Lewis sued Pulos ahead of the book's release, claiming it breached a confidentiality agreement.

The blurb for Pulos' book on her website reads, "I have advice for surviving any difficult situation, no matter if it is in the workplace, in relationships, or in life, I have learned how to fail my way forward and bloom where your planted and you can too!"

Lewis and Pulos have starred on Bravo's reality series "Flipping Out" together since 2007. Although he knew she was writing a book last October, Lewis claims all she told him was that it was about her life.

Lewis may be justified in his fear that Pulos won't write the most positive things about him. After all, he's not exactly known for being the most easy-going boss.

"I’m not saying I’m going to take advantage of the situation," Lewis said in the Season 6 premiere in reference to his new assistant, a trust fund baby named Andrew. "But I’m going to take advantage of the situation."

"Flipping Out" airs on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
