    finally a reason to care about this show.

    after the WGA strike saga a few months back , there was not much of any real interest in the TV industry itself, now this.

    basically it amounts to Bravo saying they didnt get the right to "first refusal" when the show was sold to Lifetime.

    First off let me say I cant see Bravo saying, no we don't want the show any more, then to say I would be surprised if they didn't have a first refusal, given that its a big show for them, and something I think is common in the industry (says he who has never seen a TV show contract in his life) it is logical for a network to protect themselves from something like this happening.

    finally a reason to look at DeadlineHollywoodDaily again.

    I'm confused. What's going on here? Lifetime got rights to show new episodes of the show, or old ones? Or is it something else entirely?

    the show has moved from Bravo to Lifetime, so all new episodes will be on Lifetime.

    if Bravo is to believed the mean women at Lifetime, stole it.

    if the ladies at Lifetime are to be believed, its just the greatest show for women ever, and by rights it means it should be on Lifetime.

    nah seriously, Lifetime just paid whoever makes the show for Bravo, ALOT of money.
