Rivalry, Revelations and Reality Rule in New Series From Groundbreaking Producers of The Real World

Oxygen and Bunim-Murray Productions Team Up For The Bad Girls Club, Premiering Tuesday, December 5, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT)

New York � November 6, 2006 � What happens when you put seven �bad� girls in a house together � the type of girls who lie, cheat and flirt their way out of trouble and have serious trust issues with other women? Face to face with a direct reflection of their own bad behavior, will they want to change? Or will they remain stuck in the same old patterns of self-defeat? The groundbreaking producers of The Real World bring together a house filled with seven of these women in the new 22-episode, half-hour reality series The Bad Girls Club, only on Oxygen.

Bunim-Murray�s latest show premieres with a one-hour special on Tuesday, December 5, at 10 p.m. (all times ET/PT) and will settle into its regular Tuesday at 10 p.m. timeslot beginning the next week.

The seven girls, who range in age from 22 to 32, are unapologetic, independent women who recognize that their �bad girl� ways have hindered their relationships, careers and lives. The housemates are:

� Aimee: an abrasive, aggressive girl with a mistrust of anyone other than her own family.

� Jodie: a contradiction in the true sense of the word� conservative office worker by day turned sexy social butterfly by night.

� Kerry: a country singer recently dropped by her record label and management for her irresponsible behavior.

� Leslie: an adult entertainer who wants to change the path she�s on.

� Ripsi: a judgmental, rich, spoiled �daddy�s girl� with anger issues.

� Ty: a �hustler� who aspires to be a positive influence to girls who have struggled with rough childhoods like her own.

� Zara: a small-town beauty and �wild child� who has a lot to learn about herself and the world.

�Jon Murray came to us with an idea � as the executive producer of The Real World he cast one so-called �bad� character every season,� said Debby Beece, President of Programming and Marketing for Oxygen. �Usually those characters turned out to be the audience favorite and the center of attention. So he wanted to know what would happen if we put seven of these girls in a house together.�

�We�ve found that by putting these girls in a house together and on-camera 24-7, we�re, in effect, holding a mirror up to them � now they can�t deny their behavior or pretend they didn�t mean it,� said Jon Murray of Bunim-Murray Productions. �During their time in the house, the girls exhibit just about every kind of immature, spoiled, backstabbing behavior you can imagine. You love them � and when they�re at their most outrageous, you love to hate them. Finally, you root for them to cut through their defense mechanisms and make real friends.�

The co-executive producers of The Bad Girls Club are Laura Korkoian and Dana DeMars. Executive producers are Jon Murray and Joey Carson.
