For some reason known only to himself, Tom Brady seems determined to make being an inattentive parent his primary personality trait. I mean, I understand that a void needs to be filled, but usually that kind of problem can be solved by pretending to be into craft beer or cryptocurrency. He’s even had his wife Gisele Bündchen perpetuate his ghost dad mystique. Two years ago Tom told Howard Stern that Gisele had to write him a letter practically begging him to participate in their home life and maybe like, I don’t know, learn what grade their kids Vivian Lake, 9, and Benjamin Rein, 12 are in for starts. Tom also “shares” 14-year-old son Jack with his ex Bridget Moynahan.
Jeff Lewis’ Daughter Begged Him To Stop Talking About Her On His Radio Show But He’s Still Talking About Her
Flipping Out’s Jeff Lewis has a SiriusXM radio show called Jeff Lewis Live where he shares his many, many grievances and personal dramas. Just last week the 51-year-old bragged about his “epic” 30-person holiday party where he and a bunch of his friends and employees caught COVID. A soul, a clue, a filter: Jeff is devoid of all three.
Jeff’s latest drama involves his 5-year-old daughter, Monroe Christine, whom he co-parents with ex-partner Gage Edwards, 36. They two came to a custody agreement last May, after two years of duking it out in the courts. Last week Jeff shared that Monroe was denied admission to a private school, probably because people hate him. Then over the weekend, Gage told their daughter that Jeff was talking about her on the radio. Monroe called her father crying, and told him if she continues to talk about her on his show, she will not let him see her anymore until she’s a grown-up. So what did Jeff do? Talk about the situation on the radio. Parenting: it’s not for everyone.
Sadly, lots of kids have shitty parents but very few were forced to work to provide for their shitty parents and to have the painful evidence of that labor live on in perpetuity for all the world to see. But hey, that’s Hollywood for you. Wil Wheaton, who is estranged from his parents, recently spoke with Yahoo! Entertainment about the 35th anniversary of Stand By Me and explained that his performance as Gordie was fueled by the “sadness” and “isolation” he felt in his life at that time. That’s great technique if you’re Daniel Day-Lewis going for your 6th Academy Award nomination playing an anguished cobbler or some shit, but it’s heartbreaking for a 14-year-old kid.
Jeff Lewis seems to be having the world’s longest adult temper tantrum. His temper may have made him famous on the reality show Flipping Out, but in real-life, people are walking out (and filing lawsuits) faster than a Lohan after a department store security alarm goes off. Jeff has lost his relationship with longtime friend and assistant Jenni Pulos, housekeeper (and STAR!) Zoila Chavez, and even his relationship with his longtime partner and co-parent Gage “Barbie Bitch” Edward has fallen apart.
So it should be no surprise that Jeff can’t maintain a relationship with his 2-year-old daughter’s fancy Montessori preschool. Jeff apparently read private emails and made fun of some parents on his SiriusXM radio show. That didn’t sit too well with the headmistress who decided to expel his daughter Monroe.
