Gallery Girls Premieres Tonight: Eight Reasons You'll Love to Hate It
If you have caught even one minute of Bravo's TV programming in the last month, you've probably seen ads for Gallery Girls. They're running about 100,000 times a day. Even your DVR can't ignore it -- miniature versions of the ladies occasionally pop onto the screen during your normal programming.
Ordinarily, that would be annoying. But there are two Miami girls featured in the show, so we had to give it a try. (Especially because our interview with Amy Poliakoff has already stirred up some drama between her fellow 305er Liz Margulies, well before the show has premiered.)
Once we had the pleasure of catching the premiere episode, a part of us realized we would never get that hour of our life back. And another part of us was glad about it.
We aren't sure this show will blow up Real Housewives style, but it sure is getting a lot of buzz. Everyone from Allure to Life & Style is wanting to chat with these ladies. But before you yourself gives the Gallery Girls a chance, be warned: You are going to love it and hate it all at the same time. Emotional roller coaster, here we go.
An Inside Look at the Art World
With the art world here in the Magic City officially blowing up, it can't hurt to see how New Yorkers have been doing it for decades. On Gallery Girls, you won't get any exclusive access to the all exclusive scene from the girls themselves -- but you will from their bosses.
Kerri Lisa Kills It
If you are going to identify with one girl on this show, it will be Kerri. She is just a Long Island girl working her ass off trying to pay some bills. We can relate. Kerri might show up to the first day of her internship looking like a high class hooker, but we're hoping this is just the beginning of her Pretty Woman-style career trajectory.

Being in the physical presence of a wasted bougie snob? Annoying. Watching one on TV? That's more our cup of tea. Not 30 minutes into the program, Amy announces at a very fancy art dinner party that she is, and we quote, "fucking inebriated." That's our Miami girl for ya!
Made in Dade Ladies
There are not one, but two Miami women attempting to take over the New York art world on this show. You've gotta support your local ladies -- especially because they're not doing it for each other. It's obvious they genuinely hate one another. We mean, nothing says true friendship like when Liz dubs Amy (someone she has known since childhood) a "certified ass kisser."
