Sweet Home’s Jennifer Welch Would ‘Never Hire’ BFF Angie ‘Pumps’ Sullivan: ‘She’d Be a Nightmare’

Jennifer Welch gets by with a little help from her friends — but she knows where to draw the line.

The interior designer and star of Bravo’s Sweet Home Oklahoma is back with a new series, Sweet Home, which follows the Oklahoma City business owner and the employees at her company, Jennifer Welch Designs, as they navigate the ups and downs (and literal tornadoes!) of transforming lackluster homes and offices into luxurious new spaces.

PEOPLE has an exclusive clip from the show ahead of its debut on Nov. 2.

This time around, Welsh has brought on a trio of millennial women to work alongside her, including office manager Sabah Khan, interior design associate Sarah Moll, and project manager Alex Hodges. And while her staff has changed, her closest companions have not: quirky best friend (and fellow Bravo star) Angie “Pumps” Sullivan is back with her signature humor, as well as Welsh’s ex-husband Josh, with whom she lives and co-parents their two sons.

“Pumps is still Pumps,” the design guru says affectionately of her longtime best friend in the clip. “We are like sisters.”

Despite their close bond and the design jargon that Pumps has proudly picked up, Welch, who has 20 years of experience in the field, is determined to keep her bestie separate from her business.

“I would never hire Pumps,” she swears. “She would take her bra off in client meetings, she would have to go out and have 95,000 smokes… she’d be a nightmare,” Welsh deadpans, as Pumps nods her head in agreement beside her.

“I think it’s better that we have our separate careers,” Pumps chimes in. “I agree,” Welsh adds.

With her ride-or-die on board for moral support and comic relief, Welch continues to tackle “bigger and better projects,” ranging from mansions to law firms to oil companies. Each episode centers on a unique space, which Welch and her team reimagine and revitalize.

Sweet Home is one of three new design shows Bravo is launching this fall. All will air on their new Friday block of shows.

Buying it Blind follows six couples who buy and renovate their new home without ever setting foot inside with help from a team of experts, and Get a Room with Carson & Thom is a makeover series lead by Queer Eye for the Straight Guy alums Carson Kressley and Thom Filicia.

Sweet Home premieres Friday, Nov. 2 (10 p.m. ET) on Bravo.

SPECIAL TIP UPDATE!

John Lawrence Sullivan Men’s Fall 2018

There was a sharp, sinister edge to this collection by the boxer-turned-designer Arashi Yanagawa, who is based in Tokyo and who’s been showing in London for the past three seasons. He said he wanted to show “two sides to one person,” with inspirations from films such as “Twin Peaks,” “Taxi Driver” and “Natural Born Killers” — to mixed results.
The strongest looks were the more formal, tailored ones: A sharply-cut olive topcoat, a brown one with contrasting green lapels and a long plaid topper with extra-wide shoulders. Another terrific coat with a leopard pattern looked as if it had been yanked straight from the closet of Grace Jones, circa 1986.
A fuzzy purple sweater with one gray arm and dark green leather biker pants added a jolt of brightness – and humor – to this lineup which often traveled to the dark side – unsuccessfully – in the form of long black coats or vests done in black leather, and split-personality jeans with one denim leg and another in dark leather.

The Beatles on Sullivan: You Say You Want a Revolution?

Just to briefly buzz in on this weekend’s whir of nostalgia around the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. As many have noted, it was less than three months after the Kennedy assassination, bringing across the Atlantic a whiff of much needed fresh air, a reacquaintance with joy we all had been craving since November 22, 1963.

I had first seen them a month or so earlier in a film report on The Jack Paar Show on NBC (you can see a timeworn clip from Paar’s piece here (http://ow.ly/tp6Pc)). In the weeks after that broadcast, I came down with pneumonia, and at the age of 12 was quarantined in my bedroom with only my contagion, books, undone homework, and one of those first miniature Sony TV’s, a “tummy tube” that was the size of a football. But heavier.

That was the tiny set on which I watched the Sullivan show and The Beatles, as caught up in the frenzy as so many other American kids. A few days later, my mother abandoned her Kennedy scrapbooks to make a busy project for us both. One of the young women at the hair salon she frequented was Beatle-besotted, so my ever-creative Mom made her a sign: green poster board on which she glued photos of the band I cut from magazines and some black lettering (“Yeah, Yeah, Yeah,” etc.).

She stapled tiny bags of jelly beans to it — the press said obsessed teenage girls hurled them at the Fab Four because they were Paul McCartney’s favorite (or was it George Harrison?) — then secretly delivered it after hours to the beauty parlor door. History does not record the woman’s reaction but the two of us decided it had to have been monumental.

My love of the Beatles grew as their music did: more layered, complex and thoughtful. “Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” was a treasured 16th birthday gift, “The White Album” a present to myself, “Abbey Road” a musical highlight of freshman year in college (that, and hearing The Who perform a work-in-progress version of “Tommy” during Homecoming weekend).

Some four years after their first Sullivan appearance, I had gone to England for the first time as part of a drama and literature study program. When we got to London, I spent hours roaming the streets by myself, taking everything in. I visited Carnaby Street, which had been the symbolic center of all things British and hip — but by the time I got there, the bloom was off the English rose and the street was more tattered, fading carnival than fashion hub. The Beatles were nearing their last couple of years as a group and their own boutique, Apple, had recently shut its doors.

One night while I was there, Paul McCartney and his girlfriend arrived and painted “Hey Jude/Revolution” on the abandoned store’s front window, promotion for the upcoming record single almost no one yet knew about.

In the sixties, The Beatles’ lives and careers paralleled what was happening to baby boomers like me across the country: the flirtations with nonconformity and various levels of altered consciousness, the civil and uncivil insubordination, our fitful attempts at achieving transcendental serenity.

Music journalist Mikal Gilmore said it well in Rolling Stone, back on the 25th anniversary of John Lennon’s murder (and when I wrote a bit of what you’re reading here now): “The Beatles were simply the biggest thing in the world, short of nuclear fear. They represented a sea change — in music, in culture, in democracy itself. They weren’t always comfortable with having that effect. ‘People said the Beatles were the movement,’ Lennon later said, ‘but we were only part of the movement. We were influenced as much as we influenced.’ True, but the Beatles were a key part of that movement. They represented youthful hope, and they represented the new social power that rock & roll might achieve — a power not only to upset but to transform. The world was changing — or at least it felt that way — and the Beatles served as emblems of that change.”
