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).
Hillbilly Lauren 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.
