A day after TMZ posted a video of her going on a racist tirade which had her using the n-word a total of 12 times in less than 2 minutes, Christina Hopkins is now apologizing for her shameful behavior.
The Bad Girls Club season 5 alum herself got in touch with us on Friday night, telling Reality Tea, “I apologize and take full responsibility for my foul remarks, which stem from a physical altercation.” Christina’s full apology is below –
“The video that was aired on TMZ is a careless and irresponsible rant that was egged on by anger and alcohol in response to a fight I was involved in over a year ago. Moments prior to the recording, I was subjected to racial slurs during a physical fight with a group of African American women. This is not a defense for such foul behavior; however, I take full responsibility for my inexcusable comments. Words cannot erase the pain that I have cause and I hope that those affected by my hurtful words can forgive me.”
Meanwhile, hours after the video hit the net yesterday, the Oxygen network revealed that Christina is now banned from ever appearing on their network again. The network told TMZ, “Oxygen condemns those comments… she will never appear on Oxygen again.”
And finally, Christina’s season 5 costar/nemesis/weak sauceAshley Cheatham is now speaking out against her. Ashley is furious at Christina’s comments, rightfully so, telling TMZ that “being drunk is not an excuse to bring out your inner racism. It’s disgusting and downright offensive … Go get a f**king life. Better yet, do the world a favor and go kill yourself.”
Christina’s signed letter of apology is below –
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON CHRISTINA’S APOLOGY? DO YOU BELIEVE SHE’S TRULY SORRY?
In the video posted by TMZ, Christina drops the N-word a total of 12 times in a drunken rant aimed at an African-American woman.
The video, which was shot at a diner in Staten Island last month, shows Christina going off on an unnamed person saying, “If you’re a black girl … you should shut up because you’re black … you’re a n**ger … nobody likes you… I’ve never met somebody who’s so n**gerish.”
Oh but it gets worse. One of Christina’s female friend then eggs her on as she laughs and the two women then begin to chant the N-word in unison.
Christina attempted to defend herself when called for comment by TMZ. “Some girls came up to me and said some racial remarks towards me [moments before] and this is what I said in retaliation” said Christina.
She added, “I apologize if anyone was offended, it wasn’t meant in a derogatory way.” Right because surely she meant it in a complimentary manner. The disgusting video is below –
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON CHRISTINA’S HATEFUL RANT?
Tonight was the second part of the Bad Girls Club Season 6 Reunion, and it can almost be summed up like this: The girls hate Char, Nikki seems to be back in good graces, brawl with Char, bleeping out every other word, host Perez Hilton dressed in a gold toy soldier (or 1920’s newsboy?) outfit, bleeping, extension yanks, bleeping, more Char hate…and let’s top the whole thing off with a cake fight. Recap. Done.
Seriously, though. Char’s antics on the show alienated the girls who considered themselves her friends and were shocked to see what she said about them in her interviews. Jessica, my personal favorite, seemed especially hurt because she and Char did appear to have a genuine friendship throughout the season. Jennifer (the Jersey native who only lasted a few episodes and annoyingly talks out of one side of her mouth) had the most to say to Char, stopping only when audience member–and Char’s cousin–told her she was “gonna get dog walked.” Do you think that phrase is copyrighted, or can I introduce that into my every day conversation? Because I really want to start saying it.
I found it odd that the ladies hated Char but were willing to forgive the always instigating Nikki. However (and I guess it makes sense from a Bad Girls standpoint), all the girls felt that at least Nikki stayed true to herself and wasn’t fake and backstabbing like Char. Nikki was annoying when she moved into the house, and she was just as annoying when the season ended. Strangely enough, minus a few scuffles with Char, the girls were very nice to one another, even those who had been mortal enemies in the house. While this made it easier to follow along with the reunion (less security involvement = more actual conversation), it was pretty lame. Personally, I like when people get along, I can understand what they’re saying, and I never find out who is (or isn’t) actually sporting undergarments, but for a Bad Girls Club reunion, it’s the tamest yet.
Of course, even when they are talking (and not fighting), it’s hard to understand the girls, as their constant screaming during the first half of the reunion has rendered them all incredibly hoarse. However, without words, it’s clear that Wilmarie’s dress is a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen and former past season Bad Girl Tanisha is the only lady from the whole franchise with a legitimate job…even if that job is hosting Love Games 2 featuring has-been Bad Girls (I’m talking to you, Natalie Nunn).
HillbillyLauren and Jessica have let bygones be bygones, and it’s clear–even as castoff/deserters Sydney, Ashley, Jennifer and Jade return to dish–that all’s well that end’s well…except when it comes to Char. Funny, I do believe that Char got in the least amount of physical fights, which just means all the other girls were fighting EACH. OTHER. Whatevs, all is fine and Char is the bad guy…until Perez has BGC alums Amber and Kristen (love her!) bring in a birthday cake for Jessica’s big day. He starts a cake fight and it’s all fun and games until Kori gets cake in Jade’s hair. It’s hard to tell if they are joking or killing each other (hint, it was the latter), but Jade’s family comes at Kori. Once separated, Jade trashes a dressing room (which let’s be honest, it’s a BGC club dressing room, so all she really did was knock over a folding chair) and gives the viewers what they have come to expect from these reunions…less love (seriously, they all get along now except for Char??) and more “dresses hiked up, faux hair pulling, every word bleeped out” kind of entertainment.
Keep your shirts pulled down and your beads around your neck…Season 7 is leaving Los Angeles and heading to the Big Easy, New Orleans! It is set to debut July 11 on Oxygen.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE REUNION AND THIS SEASON OF THE BAD GIRLS CLUB? WHO WAS YOUR FAVORITE & LEAST FAVORITE BAD GIRL THIS SEASON?
Just like that, the sixth season of the Bad Girls Club is over with the first part of the reunion airing tonight.
Perez Hilton returns as host of the “Bad Girls Club Reunion Special,” to once again take the reigns as the feisty females return to Los Angeles to dish on the drama and gossip from their season. The first part of the two-part reunion special airs on Oxygen at 9/8c with the second part airing next Monday, May 9 at 9/8c.
“I’m back! I may be nicer, but the girls are just as bad as ever! And it takes a real lady, like me, to keep them all in check at the reunion special! You won’t wanna miss it!” said Perez Hilton. “Oh, and tune in to see what I did that makes Tanisha wanna hurt me – badly – for real!”
Throughout this season, the house had been divided between Char’s minions and Nikki & Lauren. However, towards the end of the season, those alliances started to crumble. Have tensions eased since the girls have been away? Is anyone still speaking to Nikki? And what did Perez do to make Tanisha Thomas so mad? All those questions will be answered in the special two-part reunion.
Meanwhile, casting for season eight of “Bad Girls Club” is currently underway while Oxygen will give viewers a sneak peak of season seven — “Bad Girls Club: New Orleans” during the second part of reunion on May 9. Bad Girls Club: New Orleans is set to debut this summer on Oxygen.
A preview clip of tonight’s reunion is below!
TELL US – DO THE MINIONS HAVE A RIGHT TO BE MAD AT CHAR? THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEW & TONIGHT’S EPISODE OF THE BAD GIRLS CLUB REUNION?
Just like that, the sixth season of the Bad Girls Club has come to an end.
Tonight, all the Bad Girls from this season reunite for an Oxygen photo shoot before the remaining roommates say goodbye. There’s much more snapping than clicking, however, as Nikki pushes Wilmarie to her breaking point. The new episode airs at 9/8c on Oxygen. A preview clip is below.
Meanwhile, this season has brought us crazy fights, crazy pranks , crazy bad girls and even crazier replacements. At this point, this show is similar to the animal planet as it’s pretty much the survival of the fittest. I can only imagine this is what a women’s prison feels like. Jade going home on the first episode was pretty weak in my opinion as she talked a big game but couldn’t back it up. Sydney also leaving early seemed like a cop out. While it’s understandable the girls don’t want to be in the nut house, this is what they signed up for and they should stick it out.
Least Favorite – This is a tough one as there are so many to choose from. Char was pretty awful as so were her minions, and I still don’t understand how being a 27-year-old in the BGC house is a good thing. Definitely nothing to brag about… at all. Nikki was extremely annoying early on, then grew on me and most fans, only to revert back to her old ways towards the end of the season. It was funny when she was picking on the uber annoying Jennifer and Char, who both deserved it, but picking on Wilma and Lauren was uncalled for. And speaking of Jennifer, I think she definitely wins the award for my least favorite. She was just awful. She might just be the worst bad girl ever in the show history. And the audacity of her to try to poke fun at Wilma by calling her a replacement. Hello! So are you! She was all talk and fluff, and added nothing to the show but her extreme annoyance. In fact, I think Jennifer might be one of the worst reality stars in the history of mankind.
Favorite – This is a toss up between Lauren and Wilma. Lauren gets points for standing up to Nikki towards the end of the season, thus proving she is no one’s minion. Plus Lauren also stood up to Char early on this season when Char tried to make her a minion. Lauren definitely proved she’s her own person. Wilma is simply awesome for standing her ground, sending Jen packing and most importantly, pummeling Nikki, not once, not twice, but three times and getting the best of her each time. Does Nikki even know how to throw a punch? That linebacker appearance and walk is extremely deceiving. Similar to Lauren, Wilma gets major kudos for being her own person and standing up to Nikki at every chance. I think I will have to go with Wilma for my favorite this season.
The Latest – Following filming, Lauren and Nikki became BFFs once again but Lauren has since ended the friendship since the latest episodes started airing. According to Lauren, she did not know Nikki was doing a lot of smack talking about her behind her back. Unfortunately, the reunion show was filmed weeks ago before the cast could view all the episodes (really Oxygen?) so expect to see Lauren and Nikki being BFFs when that airs starting next week. As for Char, pretty much everyone hates her with the exception of Nikki. And come to think of it, pretty much everyone hates Nikki with the exception of Char. Guess they kind of deserve each other. Jessica and Kori are no longer Team Char and are not happy at being called her minions. Well if the title fits. Lauren and Wilma are still pals and according to the rumor mill, Sydney beat up fought Char during the reunion show. According to unconfirmed reports, the new season is currently being filmed in New Orleans. Should be interesting. And what happened to the no hitting rule? Nikki has thrown the first “punch” in all altercations with Wilma and continues to remain in the house.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS SEASON & TONIGHT’S FINALE? WHO WAS YOUR FAVORITE AND LEAST FAVORITE BAD GIRL THIS SEASON?
The drama began when the girls got home from a late club outing and the brewing feud over Char between them reached a boiling point. Ashley threw the first punch but Kori, shocking many fans of the show, seemed to finish the fight. There is a pretty general consensus that Kori won this fight and in fact, “Damn Ashley” was a trending topic on twitter Monday night as many couldn’t believe Ashley came out with a black eye.
Well, following the fight, below is what Ashley had to say in her Oxygen blog –
“The fight with Kori and I was a fight that I should’ve fought with Char but OF COURSE, Kori tries to fight all of Char’s battles because as we all know Char has no hands. It started at the club we were at. Kori got into a fight with the guy Char was trying to get and his girlfriend. Then the gf flipped me off so I spazzed out. Char tried to call us out saying we are embarrassing blasah blasah blah. So I went in on Char and out of the corner of my eye I seen Kori siding with her and that’s when I went in on Kori. I’m trying to have both of our backs while she’s stabbing me in mine. So at that point Kori started it and I had to finish it once again.”
As for Kori, she took to her twitter page and stated, “Ya i fought ash cause i was just so sick of hearin about Char, right when we got home Ash kept talking about Char it was annoying!… yes ashley deff did instigate it. It was bull shit cause i didnt wanna keep hearing about char! Ashley said she was not chars follower yet she kept talking about char when our fight happened!”
Kori adds that she and Ashley are “cordial” today but that she and everyone else “hates Char.”
And a new episode of the show airs tonight on the Oxygen network at 9/8c. On the 8th episode this season titled “Weak Sauce,” trouble looms for Jennifer when nemeses Nikki and Lauren gain an unforeseen ally. Meanwhile, Jessica’s hard-partying brother arrives at the house and things get a little steamy between him and Kori.
