They’re baaack! The all new season of Bad Girls Clubreturns tonight on the Oxygen network!
…And on the 8th season of the show the bad girls take their shenanigans to Las Vegas! What a perfect fit.
In a press release, Oxygen promises: “In the premiere episode, alliances quickly form among the housemates before they’ve even unpacked their bags. Knockout twins Gabi and Dani quickly steal all the attention, while former cheerleader Amy gets the rest of the ladies riled up with her eccentric ways. The girls venture out for their first of many nights on the town, and an accident involving a pair of expensive jeans sets the tone for the rest of the season.”
Yes, this BGC season adds some sibling rivalry to the cast as twin sistersGabi and Dani Victor are both on the show. Below are individual cast photos of the girls as well as their bios!
Bad Girls Club Las Vegas premieres tonight on Oxygen at 10/9c.
Dani Victor, Methuen, MA — At barely 5 feet tall, people underestimate Danielle until they are faced with her sharp tongue. She grew up with a tight knit family and a bossy twin sister, fellow “Bad Girl” Gabi. With few girlfriends, her twin will surely be the one she confides in at the Bad Girl house. She owns 150 pairs of heels and never wears sneakers unless she’s “pretending” to go to the gym.

Being an actual contestant on The Bacheloris simply not humiliating enough for some folks. Others have to extend their .5 seconds of fame and come back to the show, via their spin-offs, or if you’re Shawntel Newton, you can return in a surprise visit.
In an interview with People, Shawntel explains what the hell she was doing there as well as her very special connection via sexting (er, I mean, “Twitter fling”) to current bachelor Ben Flajnik. Plus, how she dealt with the abuse backlash she received from the other contestants!
On why she decided to meet Ben on the show, instead of meeting him for a drink like a normal person:
“I didn’t want to go back on national television, but I wanted to at least meet Ben in person. This was the only chance I had. [He could] be engaged in a couple of months. It was worth trying. It wasn’t like I was in love with this guy, but I thought there could be something … I didn’t think anyone was in love yet so I didn’t think I was stepping on too many toes.”
On some of the not-so-nice reactions she received from the actual contestants:
I knew I was walking into a lion’s den. I expected going in to have the girls a little confused and upset with me. … Insecurities came out and nothing could have prepared me [for] the reaction [I got]. Hearing girls saying I’m uglier in person and have big thighs and calling me dumpster trash and a b—- – was intense. I was hurt. Jaclyn told me she wanted to punch [me] in the face. Courtney was the most harsh. When I got sent home, she laughed and said, “Sayonara.” Defending myself for two hours was exhausting. A girl can only take so much. I snuck off to the bathroom and I cried.
On her very intimate Twitter relationship with Ben:
I made it very clear on Twitter I had a crush on him and wanted to get to know him [during] Ashley’s season. He sent me a private message and we exchanged numbers. We [said] we should meet in person but he couldn’t be seen in public. It never happened.
On how she thought her surprise visit would do:
I was very confident walking in, because I knew he felt something for me, too. I really thought he would keep me and at least take me on a date to see if there was something. I would have liked that a whole lot better than talking to him for two minutes, getting picked on and then being sent home.
On who’s wearing the pants on the Bachelor set:
I think the biggest influence [on his decision] was Courtney. She basically gave him an ultimatum – “If you keep Shawntel, I’m out” – and he’s making it clear he’s head over heels for her. I think he ends up choosing her.
In other news, Bravo’s ownAndy Cohen also made a shocking revelation when he told the HollywoodLife he was once approached to be The Bachelor!
“I got a call once years ago before anybody knew who I was,” Andy revealed. “My picture was in W magazine, and the producers of The Bachelor called. They were calling to see if I would ever be interested in going through the casting process.”
Andy err of course turned ABC down for obvious reasons. “I said, ‘You are barking up the wrong tree,’” he stated. “‘Unless The Bachelor is going in a different direction …”

Sweetie, who had been Kim’s friends for years and is very close to both of her daughters, claimed to have no issues with Kim’s treatment of her nonetheless it bothered some viewers to the point where a “Free Sweetie” campaign was started by a radio station.
This summer fans learned that Sweetie had been set free because Kim allegedly fired her poor, beleaguered assistant. Sweetie continued tweeting Kim’s daughter, Brielle, occasionally and has been seen in a few episodes of this season. Neither Sweetie, nor Kim, explained what happened with their relationship and neither woman has made negative comments about the other to the media.
I know, the maturity displayed is the most shocking element of this whole situation. It’s so… un-Housewives of them!
Fans still want to know what the EFF happened!? We may never know, unless Bravo is saving it for Kim’s spin-off, which was filmed in part over the summer as she prepared for her November wedding to Kroy Biermann. In the meantime, it looks like Kim and Sweetie still have some sort of relationship — at least according to the Twitter!
Earlier this week, Sweetie tweeted about not being able to sleep and needing a 5-hour energy drink in order get up super early. That prompted Kim to tweet a warning against it! “noooooo those things are dangerous,” Kim reminded her former(?) friend, adding, “last time we took that we thought we were having a heart attack!”
The ladies continued to engage in friendly banter with Sweetie reminiscing about times of energy drinks past, “lmao ugh yeah I was feeling that heart attack feeling again.smh!!!”
“I learned the 1st time! Baha! Never again,” Kim replied. “lol now that I think about it. All nighter driving from Tennessee…hahhahaha! #hardworking,” Sweetie recounted. “Baha! Be safe! Xxo,” Kim tweeted back. So are these two friends again or what? I’m guessing yes, and Sweetie simply chose to take a different, less stressful job. For all we know, Bravo “made” Kim fire Sweetie for dramatic purposes!
Moving on, Kim gold digger extraordinaire recently blogged that she was warned against dating Kroy! Um… are we sure it wasn’t the other way around? “I was warned by everybody: ‘Don’t date Kroy, he’s an NFL player, don’t date him,’ ” Kim explained, claiming friends also worried about their six-year age gap.
“I had never dated somebody younger in my life. [Kroy] was 24 when I met him, but he’s really mature,” Kim revealed. “There aren’t a lot of guys at 24 who would step into a commitment with someone who has children. That’s a sacrifice. And I just think Kroy is definitely wise beyond his age.” Yes, Kroy does seem very mature — and patient!
While Kim makes no secret that Kroy’s amazing ass-ets are what initially attracted her, she quickly realized he was more than just a good tight end. “After I met him, he just sent me a text that said, ‘It was really great to meet you. I’ll be in touch.’ Some guys, when you meet them, they try to play it cool for a couple days. But Kroy just sent me that text. And, honestly, people always say you just know when you meet The One. And almost immediately I just knew.”
I want to know how many of Kroy’s friends warned him, ‘Don’t date Kim!’ Regardless, I hope these two are happy and I wish them the best of luck in their future!
Finally, a new episode of RHOA airs tonight and the Housewives, minus new mommy Kim, leave for Africa. Pulling a fast one, unbeknownst to the other ladies, NeNe secretly invites Marlo Hampton — the mug shot model, financed by faith, gold-digging fauxcialite! No one is too pleased with the new addition.
While everyone else prepares for their trip, Kim schemes to lose weight the easy way and the sudden end of the NFL lockout forces Kroy to travel, leaving Kim and KJ behind! A preview of the new episode is below!
RHOA airs tonight on Bravo at 9/10c.

Season two of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has certainly brought the drama this go-round. The first season’s viewership was high, but the new drama has increased by 12 percent since last season, averaging about 2.2 million viewers. Last week’s episode was ratings gold when Taylor Armstrong finally discussed on camera her abusive relationship with now deceased husband Russell Armstrong.
According to a new report by Radar Online, Bravo is looking to shake things up… just a tad for season 3. The shocker? The network is expected to ask Taylor to return, while likely firing Camille Grammer. The reason? Camille was not a bitch too reserved this season!
“Producers are asking Lisa Vanderpump, Adrienne Maloof and Kyle Richardsif any of their wealthy female friends would be interested in appearing on the show,” a Bravo network insider tells RadarOnline. “It’s an open secret that Camille most likely won’t be back for a third season. She came off as such a bitch during season one, whereas this season she has been very reserved,” continues the source.
The source goes on to add that Camille “isn’t exactly eager to return. Camille has some other projects in the works, but she needs to get released from her Bravo contract before she can pursue those.” You have to wonder if Camille really wants to exit the show, or if this is just a way to save face in case Bravo decides to fire her a la Jill Zarin.
America watched as Camille endured a very nasty and public divorce from actor Kelsey Grammer prior to this season. Kelsey, who appeared on a handful of episodes last season, famously told CNN presenter Piers Morgan that securing a spot for Camille on RHOBH was a “parting gift” to his then-wife. He stated, “Whether or not it worked well for her doesn’t matter — it was my way of saying, ‘Look, you always wanted to be famous. Here you go.”
With Camille likely absent from a third season, the source dishes on some other changes that viewers could potentially see, sharing, “Expect Taylor and Brandi [Glanville] to come back. Kim Richards doesn’t want to, but she needs the money, so her role might not be as prominent. Producers will focus more on Brandi because she is so polarizing and she loves playing the villain.”
In other Housewives news, Brandi Glanville and Dana Wilkey got into a Twitter feud today after Dana retweeted a not so nice tweet made about Brandi. The message retweeted by Dana stated: “Brandi has some nerve dis Kim, while she mixes xanax.alcohol. Claims only to fly. Hope Ed knows this, if flies w/kids.” Yikes.
Brandi was none too pleased about Dana retweeting that message and fired off some tweets to Dana. Below are Brandi’s tweets -
“@Danawilkey its so sad to see how desperately u want back on the show. U will throw anyone under the buss.#ursoobviousitssad.”
“@Danawilkey I’m blocking you, cuz ur so sweet via texts and horrid on twitter. Wen u figure out who u really are hit me up!”
“I’m not gonna say anything bad about @danwilky she just doesn’t know who she is.My custody and family are just off limits. Moving on.”
Following the backlash from Brandi’s fans, Dana passive aggressivelytweeted -
“Lets not get crazy people! I RT alot of good and bad things.I thought the comment was interesting thats why I retweeted it. No other reason.”
Ultimately, Dana removed the re-tweet and apologized to Brandi. “Brandi blocked me so let her know I’m sorry I didnt mean anything by the RT…and good luck with everything. I’m jumping off. #rhobh,” tweeted Dana.
The Twitter war ended well as Brandi accepted Dana’s apology. “@Danawilkey I accept ur apology, just be u, the u u are in person. Xob” tweeted Brandi. Whew!

As for what is to come this season, the press release reads: “Reeling from the repercussions of last season’s drama, the series once again ventures behind the gates for a salacious look at the love and lives unfolding inside one of Southern California’s wealthiest communities. This season Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney, Gretchen Rossiand Alexis Bellinowelcome brunette bombshell Heather Dubrow.”
Andy Cohen also assures us this season will be one to watch! Andy tweeted yesterday, “Just watched two episodes of new season #RHOC – omg might be best season yet!!!”
In addition to newbie Heather, Bravo has also announced another new addition to the show — Sarah Winchester, who is being described as a “friend of the housewives” a la Brandi Glanville and Dana Wilkey of the RHOBH. A photo of Sarah is also below as well as her bio!
The new season premieres Tuesday, February 7 at 9pm ET/PT on Bravo.
Although, to be honest, Nene calls everyone in her life both a fake and a hater, so Kandi could have just walked away. Nene is probably calling some Starbucks Batista a “hater” right now, in between throwing wads of dollar bills up in the air.
The conflict appears to have come from the trip Nene, Kandi and Cynthia took at the beginning of the season to Miami (the one where Nene made fun of Kandi’s thighs in her talking head interview). Kandi explains why she was even on the trip to begin with: “Let me tell y’all something about her fake a*s.” Kandi adds, “I didn’t even really want to go on that trip. The only reason why I was even invited on that trip is because I was the only one that was even on speaking terms with her during that time other than Cynthia.”
After the trip, Kandi made a comment to the other housewives women at Kim’s birthday party making fun of Nene’s new found wealth and her constant reminders that she was “rich.”
As to why Nene was so offended (probably because she’s not rich at all), Kandi is similarly confused:”Name something else I said. Even when I was with her in Miami, I made a joke about the being rich thing.”
What was most interesting about Kandi’s comments is that she herself tried to clear the air about the trip in her Bravo blog, but her efforts were thwarted by the powers that be, who deleted Kandi’s explanations for her behavior.
She says, “I said all this in my blog, and then [Bravo] edited my damn blog. So I told them, I said, ‘I’m not blogging no more.’” True to her word, Kandi has not posted a blog since November 15.
In any case, Nene and Kandi will never be best friends, or even close friends. She says, “”She don’t call me. I don’t talk to her outside of the show.” Even during events the ladies are at for filming purposes, Nene stays away: “Even when all of us are together at certain events, half the time, she don’t even speak to me!”
TELL US: ARE YOU ON KANDI OR NENE’S SIDE? DO YOU THINK NENE WILL HAVE ANY FRIENDS LEFT IN ATLANTA? WHY IS NENE SO OBSESSED WITH HER HATERS?
While Danielle Staub was busy allegedly selling fake stories to tabloids and creating Twitter attack dogs out of her followers, she was also battling her former employers to avoid taking her clothes off! And Danielle has won her case, which is a relief, because I can’t think of all that many people who are lining up to see Danielle sans pants!
Last year, with few employment prospects on the horizon following her firing and in desperate need of attention, Danielle inked a deal with the infamous Scores Gentleman’s Club to resurrect her stripping career. Shortly after agreeing to return to the pole, the former Real Housewives of New Jersey star abruptly changed her mind; claiming she was “coaxed” into signing the deal. After walking away, Danielle decided to seek psychological help which obviously did little good.
In response Scores filed a lawsuit against Danielle for $375,000, claiming she was in breach of contract for failing to make agreed upon appearances at the club and on their website.
The lawsuit was just settled in federal court and TMZ has learned that a judge dismissed the suit based on the grounds that Scores failed to show why Danielle had further legal obligation to the club after initially making a strip video, for which she was paid $25k.
The judge claimed Scores drew up a “vague” contract and never explicitly specified Danielle’s additional obligations to the club. While things are temporarily settled, if new evidence comes to light Scores can re-open the case. Were they really expecting to make that much money off Danielle parading around naked? I imagine the interest level is quite low!
In other RHONJ news, Melissa Gorga continues her quest for over-the-hill pop stardom! The 33-year-old mother of three is currently in Chicago to lipsync perform “On Display” at the gay club Spin. Melissa took time out to interview with GoPride.com, where she talked about her family and if she regrets joining the show.
To make a long story short, of course, Melissa has no regrets about exposing her family drama for all the world to see accepting the offer to be on TV. “I have no regrets in signing up for the show,” Melissa states. “My hardest challenge is being a wife, being a mother and being on a reality show. Its not always easy to balance it all but some how I manage to do it. As of right now, I am loving every minute of it.”
“No matter how busy life can get, my family is always my priority. I will never allow what I am doing for a living to change who I am or how I take care of my family. I am very careful about balancing my schedule and how much I will take on in one week. Nothing will ever come before my children.”
While things are wonderful with her immediate family, Melissa and her infamous sister-in-law Teresa Giudice are still on the outs. Despite all the problems, Melissa claims she isn’t harboring any grudges, thanking her background in psychology (say what?!). “I am very receptive to other peoples feelings and why they are feeling that way. I think that’s why I am so quick to forgive and forget,” Melissa explains, adding that, “Sometimes having the pressure of millions of people watching you can make you act or say things that you wouldn’t normally do or say.”
And despite the turmoil in their relationship, Melissa is wishing Teresa the best in her foray on Celebrity Apprentice. “I am happy for her, its a great opportunity and we wish her the best!”
In the meantime Melissa has three new songs coming out in April, right before Season four of RHONJ airs!
