OXYGEN REVEALS THE SEVEN NEWEST CAST MEMBERS TO THE "BAD GIRL'S CLUB" ON MYSPACE
Season Three Premieres Tuesday, December 2 at 10PM ET/PT
New York - November 20, 2008 - Fans of Oxygen's hit original series "Bad Girl's Club" will have a unique opportunity to "meet" the show's newest cast members on MySpace throughout the week leading up to the season three premiere. Beginning Tuesday, November 25, Oxygen will kick off a special week-long "Bad Girl's Club First Look" at www.myspace.com/the-channel revealing one girl per day through exclusive audition clips.
From Bunim-Murray Productions, the groundbreaking producers of "The Real World," "The Bad Girls Club" brings together seven hot-tempered, self-admittedly "bad" girls, who have issues ranging from anger and trust to jealousy and control, to live together in a beautiful Los Angeles mansion and hopefully inspire each other to make positive changes.
Following is a brief introduction to this season's cast:
Ailea - 21: Ailea is feisty and rich-a big fish in the small sea that is Buford, Georgia. Her family spares no expense when it comes to providing her with the finer things in life. She is extremely spoiled and prone to temper tantrums on the rare occasions when she does not get her way. Ailea constantly hooks up with guys she meets online because she's not satisfied with the men Buford has to offer and loves to role-play. Ailea loves to stir up trouble and the best part is, she never gets caught.
Amber B. -23: Amber believes she is the most attractive girl in Pittsburgh. She is ultra competitive, and does not want any girl to be "prettier, smarter or wittier" than her. She says that her boobs are her best trait. Amber's relationships are always up and down roller coasters. She rarely gets along with other women and has major trust issues due to her parents divorcing when she was young. She owns two cell phones to help her juggle the multiple guys she's dating. She likes porn, strip clubs, and making "home movies."
Amber M. - 25: Raised as a Jehovah's Witness in little known Montevideo, Minnesota, Amber grew up poor and sheltered. At an early age, Amber realized this restricted lifestyle was not for her and began to rebel. Other women have issues with her because she's always acting ditzy and stealing the spotlight. Amber lives her life focused on fun, sexual escapades and insulting other females without considering the consequences.
Kayla - 23: Accustomed to fending for herself, Kayla is a born hustler who's resorted to everything from phone sex to sugar daddies to help pay the bills. Despite being street smart and resourceful, Kayla just can't seem to stay out of trouble. Coming from a rocky childhood in South Los Angeles, Kayla constantly believes that people are out to get her. She admits to having two personalities and you never know which one you are going to get.
Sarah - 23: Born and raised in Wisconsin, Sarah does not share the conservative morals of most rural Midwesterners. Married by 19 and divorced by 21, Sarah has spent the last several years making up for lost time, indulging in countless nights of drinking, partying and promiscuous sex. She recently posed for an online edition of Playboy and dreams of becoming a Playmate.
Tiffany - 24: Hailing from the South Side of Chicago, Tiffany spent much of her childhood in a rough neighborhood known as "the wild 100's." She is unemployed, and largely supported by various sugar daddies in her life. She likes to date "shady" guys ~ but what she really goes for is a black man with "swagger." Tiffany is the type of girl who will give you the shirt off her back, but if disrespected- things will get ugly.
Whitney- 21: When asked to define what it means to be a "Boston Girl," Whitney cheerfully replies, "Go f**k yourself! That's what it means." Although her in-your-face attitude certainly has a lot to do with pride in her city, Whitney has other reasons for growing a thick skin- she was raised in the projects of Boston. Whitney has a temper and loves to raise her voice. In Whitney's mind, she is right no matter what.
