The circle of life was in full effect on Bravo this week -- shows ending, new ones beginning and others thriving in the middle of their seasons. And while we're sure you watched each and every night to see what went down on Bravo, just in case you missed a night or haven't fully caught up on your DVR (that's what the weekend is for!), allow The Dish to walk you through the past week's highlights, because we're nothing if not reflective. Let's do this...
First up, our new art-world reality series Gallery Girls got off to a whopping start, thanks in part to some incredibly positive reviews and press. Trust us, the premiere episode is only the tip of the art-drama iceberg, and there's plenty more red lipstick, nude modeling and hipster-vs-socialite tension to come. Oh yeah, and there's pretty paintings.
And while Gallery Girls was born, Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles moved on to that special place in the sky reserved for shows in between seasons. The finale brought lots of snazzy homes being sold, but most importantly, it was great to see Madison Hildebrand and his former assistant Heather Bilyeu bury the hatchet -- all thanks to the karma brought about by the passing of Madison's adorable pooch, Rex. He would have wanted it this way: RIP, Rex.
Speaking of getting over fights and putting the past behind you, Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita seemed to do that as well on this week's Real Housewives of New Jersey ... at least for the time being. A truce is a good thing if it can last, but this is New Jersey, so it could all crumble quickly. Oh, and that phone Joe Giudice phone call is this weekend, so you'll want to see that.
Across the Hudson in New York, there's no amicable resolution in the cards for Ramona Singer and Heather Thomson any time soon. The around-the-corner backtalking of this scene was particularly compelling to watch. Hey, space is a premium in New York City, so sometimes you just have to drop the hammer on the other side of some sheetrock.
