NEW YORK – Reality TV home designer Jeff Lewis will have fewer employees to flip out over this season.

The admitted obsessive-compulsive star of “Flipping Out” told The Associated Press two employees on the Bravo show will get fired in the fifth season, which premiers July 6.

One staff firing was expected but the other is a surprise. Lewis, who used to flip houses, says the second dismissal “kind of cuts and hurts.” He would not disclose the person’s name.

Lewis is known for his sarcastic barbs and fiery temper. He says the new season will feature his “craziest, most difficult client” ever. He says she was so outrageous Bravo called to make sure she wasn’t acting.
