Scott faces down tension inside his team on fiery new Flip It Like Disick

Scott Disick brought in expert help to try to speed up progress on his floundering Jed Smith House, a property for which he’d paid $3.235 million, on Sunday’s episode of Flip it Like Disick.

It was a smart idea, but it backfired on him when his business partner Benny Luciano and contractor Miki Mor refused to work with real-estate developer Ilan Sharone and his crew.

‘All I was doing was trying to get this project to move quicker,’ said Scott, 36. ‘But somehow within that, I’ve upset Benny and Miki. And I’ve potentially damaged my relationship with Ilan.’

‘I’m not sure this really could have gone any worse.’

As the episode opened, Scott examined a gorgeous 11,000-square-foot house that Ilan had been renovating, and came away so impressed, he considered investing in it.

Once owned by actor Mark Wahlberg, the massive home boasted an enormous screening room, professional gym and a Playboy Mansion-style grotto.

‘Flipping a house like this, of this kind of stature and money, you really gotta know what you’re doing,’ Scott affirmed, figuring that the home might sell for $30 million.

His own home flip, the Jed Smith House in Hidden Hills, had been held up by the local homeowners’ association after he demolished its basketball court without a permit.

As he waited for the right paperwork, it sat there, costing him $750 a day, which was painful.

It would ultimately take three weeks to get the permit, for a total loss of $15,000.

In an attempt to stay positive, Scott shaved his shaggy beard and cut his hair.

‘Now everything can be fresh, clean and move quickly,’ he offered.

While his team waited, interior designer Willa Ford, 38, volunteered to rehab the office of Benny Luciano, Scott’s partner and the owner of Calabasas Luxury Motorcars.

Her plan was to make it more appealing to female customers, adding sisal rugs, warm wooden desks and vintage leather chairs, and ditching its harsh fluorescent lighting.

Her proposed budget? $40,000. What Benny wanted to spend: $5,000.

In his own downtime, Scott joined Willa and designer Meeshie Snyder at the Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena, California, where he bargained hard for antiques.

Then Miki revealed he got a permit for the Jed Smith House, and work could begin anew.

The home was bared to its studs, but there were still too few workers on-site to help.

The team had three months to finish without further losses, and tensions ran high.

Heavy rains kept delaying the plumbing, insulation and electrical work.

‘We really need to get this project back on schedule,’ Scott declared.

Difference of opinion: Her proposed budget was $40,000, while what Benny wanted to spend was a comparatively paltry $5,000

For inspiration, he visited Ilan’s house flip again, watching his crew work despite the rain.

‘It’s a totally different ship you’re running over here than my Valley ship,’ Scott admitted, marveling at the number of people his friend employed.

‘Rain or shine, I think Miki should be pushing harder to get us on track,’ the show’s star mused.

‘I just wonder, if we had Ilan on our project, if we’d actually be moving forward.’

Work on the Jed Smith House subsequently slowed to a crawl.

Willa went to Wertz Brothers, a Los Angeles furniture dealer, with her designer pals Meeshie and Amy Nece, all of them seeking vintage items for Benny’s office.

She told the women that Benny called and questioned her about her plans for his office all day long—and he called her again while they were there.

‘Why don’t you just shoot me some pics?’ Benny whined. ‘I like to be part of the process.’

‘I cannot stand being micromanaged,’ Willa revealed in a confessional. ‘At the rate this is going, the office is going to be completely designed by Benny.’

‘I love him, but he’s so annoying.’

Confidence: Willa joined Scott and Ilan at the Jed Smith House, where the developer looked around and announced that, with a full crew, Scott could get the place done in two months

After the trip, Willa joined Scott and Ilan at the Jed Smith House, where the developer looked around and announced that, with a full crew, Scott could get the place done in two months.

Neither Miki nor Benny had bothered to attend the scheduled meeting.

‘Five guys does not do it,’ Scott admitted, counting the number of men they currently had working on their house flip. ‘Five guys is like a pizza place.’

Miki brought the rest of the crew over to stucco and paint Benny’s office walls.

Willa, who’d wanted a more feminine look for the space, was horrified.

‘This is the opposite of the direction that I wanted to go in,’ she groaned.

Scott told his pals that Ilan said the Jed Smith House could be done in two months.

‘We don’t need Ilan to tell us that more workers at Jed Smith is gonna get it done faster,’ Benny complained. ‘That is not our business model.’

‘Our business model is that we want to make a lot of money, so to make a lot of money, we have to have less people. That’s why we’re doing it this way.’

He and Willa also agreed to stop working together.

‘I couldn’t be happier,’ Willa said. ‘And honestly, I’m gonna make sure that Scott is there when he sees Benny’s office at the reveal, ‘cause I want him to know [it] wasn’t me.’

When the day came, she was right to gloat, because the office just looked like an austere and barely upgraded version of what Benny already had—and he’d spent $8,000 on it.

‘I feel like I’m in federal prison,’ Meeshie said, staring at the gray walls.

‘Mom, will you accept this call from the state penitentiary?’ Willa cracked, holding his phone.

Scott, who came in late, assumed the furniture was temporary, to Benny’s dismay.

Off her hands: Benny and Willa also agreed to stop working together to which Willa responded: 'I couldn't be happier'

The team then went to look at Willa’s office, which she’d also recently redone.

Scott raved about the homey, softly lit space, which was cozy where Benny’s digs were cold.

His business partner then critiqued every aspect of Willa’s office space.

You guys were talking smack about my office,’ Benny noted. ‘I’m just giving my opinion.’

Scott finally decided to bring Ilan on board to help finish the Jed Smith House, deciding that it would be okay if it cost him ‘a little bit more money’ as the payoff would be worth it.

But when Ilan showed up for work with his impressive crew, Miki was upset.

‘Everything is under control,’ he told the developer, shooing him away.

Privately, he was steamed.

‘I see Ilan with his team, shovel on my project?’ Miki asked. ‘Not gonna happen, not at all.’

He called Benny, who claimed he had no idea Ilan would be there, either.

Battle of wills: Mika refused to let Ilan's team work on his site when they arrived, since Scott had failed to prep his team adequately

Scott soon arrived, and realized he had failed to prep his team adequately.

It was a costly mistake to make, as Ilan’s workers were there on the clock.

‘Your guy is pissed,’ Ilan told Scott, referring to Miki. ‘I brought in all of my guys, and he’s like, “No, no, no. No one steps foot on my site.” He got a little butthurt, I think.’

‘All I was really trying to do was do better for all of us,’ Scott told Miki and Benny, who weren’t entirely ready to forgive him.

‘You were trying to break up the band,’ Benny said. ‘Why don’t you have Yoko Ono take a hike?’

‘What’s a Yoko?’ Miki asked.

Friction: ‘You were trying to break up the band,’ Benny said, snapping of Ilan: ‘Why don’t you have Yoko Ono take a hike?’
