Star Jones To Host First-Ever "Bad Girls Club" Reunion Special for Oxygen

Star Jones To Host First-Ever "Bad Girls Club" Reunion Special

Entire Cast Returns to Discuss All the Outrageous Drama and Extreme Behavior of Season Two

"The Bad Girls Club" One-Hour Reunion Special to Air Tuesday, May 20 at 9:30 pm ET/PT on Oxygen

NEW YORK � April 29, 2008 � "The Bad Girls Club" season two cast will return for one final punch as the girls get together for a one-hour reunion special, hosted by Star Jones, on Tuesday, May 20 at 9:30pm ET/PT on Oxygen. Jones, known for her candid and unique interview style, moderates the action as the roommates discuss the months of heated arguments, angry brawls, and outrageous behavior that occurred while living in the "bad girls" house. When the cast entered the Los Angeles mansion, they claimed they wanted to change and shed their destructive personalities � and Jones uses her legal expertise to distinguish fact from fiction to see which girls lived up to their word and which girls just lived it up.

"A smart mix of prosecutor and even-keeled facilitator, Star Jones is the perfect host for this special," said Amy Introcaso-Davis, Senior Vice President of Original Programming and Development, Oxygen. "We were looking for someone who could cut through the clutter and get real with the girls � Star fits that bill."

Filmed in front of a live audience in Los Angeles and interspersed with viewer questions, tempers are certain to flair among the cast. Even though months have passed since leaving the house, the "bad girls" still have plenty of unresolved issues.

Star Jones - attorney, television personality, former prosecutor, author and lecturer - has had an amazing television career spanning more than 15 years. She was most recently the executive editor and host of "The Star Jones Show" on truTV (formerly Court TV), a daily news and information talk show. She also co-hosted "The View" for nine years, hosted "Live from the Red Carpet" for E! Entertainment Television and was a senior legal correspondent for "Today" and "NBC Nightly News."

Season two of "The Bad Girls Club" premiered on Tuesday, December 4. From Bunim-Murray, the groundbreaking producers of "The Real World," the show brings seven self-proclaimed "bad girls" together in a beautiful Los Angeles mansion. The cast, who range in age from 21 to 26, recognize that their outrageous behavior has hindered their relationships, careers and lives. These women have issues with anger, trust and control, and claim they want to change. Will living together help them move forward and turn their lives around � or will chaos rule?

Building on the success of the show's inaugural season, the second cycle broke viewership and online records for the network. In addition to being Oxygen's highest-rated original series ever, "The Bad Girls Club" hit a network milestone to become the first Oxygen original series to break the one million viewer mark for a single episode. To date, the show site has generated 16 million page views and 5.8 million video streams.

Jon Murray and Laura Korkoian are executive producers of "The Bad Girls Club" for Bunim-Murray productions.
