He wants to deck her ... literally.

Jeff Lewis and Ashley Jensen

Bravo's sassy "Flipping Out" star is feuding with "Extras" and "Ugly Betty" star Ashley Jensen and her actor husband Terence Beesly over a deck (most likely a great-looking deck that we all dream of) that apparently crosses the property border.

Jensen and Beesley live next door to a home Lewis is renovating in Los Feliz, California. They filed suit against Lewis for threatening them after they refused his offer to buy the property his deck encroached upon. He initially offered them $10,000 for the land which they say is worth $100,000. When he came back to them with an offer of $30,000, they turned him down and he in turn threatened to make their lives miserable and talk badly about them on the new season of his show.

The following statement was issued by Lewis in response to their suit:

"Actress Ashley Jensen ('Ugly Betty') and her husband Terry Beesley and I have a simple encroachment dispute that should have been resolved informally. Having apparently watched my reality show, they now feel they can exploit my personality to increase their media exposure and their alleged damages. I have never threatened either of them with physical harm, nor was I abusive or verbally threatening to either of them. In fact I have never even met Ms. Jensen. The court will decide how much the easement is worth and Ms. Jensen and Mr. Beesley will then be left having to earn media coverage on their talent alone."

Here's hoping there's no gag order on the case ,so we get to see all the drama unfold on the show. Oh, did we say that out loud? We mean: Here's hoping an amicable settlement is reached so they can throw fabulous deck parties for years and years to come.

WTF???!!! This is a waste of our courts time. When purchasing a house if there is an encroachment/easement you are made aware of that when you purchase the home. You can either accept it or Not. If you can’t live with it then don’t buy the house.
