"I think people like our brand of crazy," Flipping Out star Jenni Pulos says, explaining the show's success. Now in its eighth season, Flipping Out is one of Bravo's longest-running series in network history.
"[Jeff Lewis and I] joke that we talked with Andy Cohen and said, maybe we would have three years," Pulos tells ETonline. "And here we are, year eight -- and the show's better than ever this year. I'm so proud of it."
After being on Bravo for so long, ETonline had to ask Pulos for her best (read: worst) Bravo-lebrity encounter. Surprisingly, Pulos said she really hasn't had a crazy run-in with anyone, though she did call big Bravo get-togethers "a circus."
"It is everything you could think it to be and more when all those Housewives are in one room," Pulos saus. "It's been fun because we've been there for a long time and we've seen Bravo grow as a brand and a network and a force. And it's been great to be a part of that ride."
There was one name Pulos dropped, though: Countess LuAnn de Lesseps from The Real Housewives of New York. "I will say the Countess and I did not hit it off in the beginning," Pulos reveals. "She was probably like, you know, can this girl bring it. Is she that cool or is she all uncool? And then, when she heard the jams I think that was instant love."
Those "jams" would be Pulos' rap songs. She performs Bravo's Watch What Happens Live
theme, and has released a series of children's raps -- including "Poo in the Potty
." Pulos teased that the potty-training tune's music video will premiere during Flipping Out
's season finale later this month.
Of course, we couldn't let Pulos leave the ETonline studios without performing a rap of our own -- and she delivered big time. Watch the amazing freestyle performance here:
