Second Season Hosted By Fan Favorite Tanisha Thomas and Features Former "Bad Girls" Natalie, Amber B. and Lea Competing For the Man of Their Dreams

New York, NY - February 2, 2011 - Oxygen plays matchmaker once again with the return of the hit, dating competition series "Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too," featuring three former "Bad Girls" - Natalie (season 4), Amber B. (season 3) and Lea (season 5) as they compete and search for the man of their dreams. The flirty, feisty and always outrageous group of ladies returns to Oxygen in search of love from a pool of 15 eligible suitors. "Bad Girl" Tanisha Thomas (season 2) hosts the series which premieres on April 18 at 10PM ET/PT.

Each week Natalie, Amber B. and Lea, have bachelors competing for their attention in a series of quirky challenges and entertaining group dates. This time, the girls battle one another hoping to be crowned "HBIC" - Head Bad Girl In Charge. This season, the competition between them gets even more intense, when the HBIC gets to determine who is up for elimination. Will the HBIC try to eliminate the other Bad Girls' favorite guys to break their hearts? Or do they have a stake in keeping the same man in the game? Ultimately, hearts will be broken and someone is going home´┐Ż

Meet the lovelorn Bad Girls:

Natalie, 25 - Bay Area, CA

Notorious Natalie from season four "Bad Girls Club" claims that being a "Bad Girl" has killed her game. She's now looking for a guy who can win her over and capture her heart. Natalie is having trouble finding love after numerous one-night-stands. Known for her infamous celebrity hook ups, she has made enemies with many of their current and past girlfriends. Sugar daddies have tried to win her over with brand new cars and a condo in Beverly Hills, but Natalie is looking for a guy she can have fun with. If another girl tries to steal her guys' attention and hone in on her territory, look out, because she is one extremely jealous "Bad Girl." Fiercely competitive, Natalie will certainly try to dominate the game with her "I run L.A." attitude.

Amber B., 25 - Pittsburgh, PA

"Bad Girl" star Amber B. from season 3 recently broke up with her boyfriend and now claims, "I am all about the rebound guy!" Ultra competitive, she does not want any girl to be "prettier, smarter or wittier" than her. Amber's relationships are always up and down roller coaster rides but she is not one to shy away when it comes to guys. Blunt and very upfront when she flirts with guys, she will be a fierce competitor in the game when it comes to love. Although she has dated some real meatheads, Amber is looking for love and no more roller coaster relationships.

Lea, 23 - South Beach, FL

Fresh from season five "Bad Girls Club Miami," Lea is single for the first time in years after her six-year relationship ended. She also ended a year-long affair with a married man after flying to Vegas and having a change of heart about marrying him. Lea claims to be a hopeless romantic who is looking for an outdoorsy, good-looking guy who will make her laugh. She has a strong distaste for anything she deems commercial or fake and has no time for insecure guys. Not the typical glam gal, this tattooed wild child has transformed from a once reserved girl into the one who is "always the loudest in the room and the first to get naked."

Host Tanisha Thomas was introduced to television audiences in 2008 as a cast member in season two of Oxygen's "Bad Girls Club." With her bold personality, brash attitude and outrageous sense of humor, she quickly became the show's number-one fan favorite. Tanisha recently appeared on Oxygen as a special guest on the first season of "Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too" and can currently be seen hosting OxygenLive's "Bad Girls Club" edition.

She recently starred in "Celebrity Fit Club" along with Kevin Federline, Sebastian Bach and Kaycee Stroh. Tanisha has been featured on many television and radio programs, including "The Tyra Banks Show," "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List," "The Soup," "The A-List Awards" and "Big Boy's Neighborhood." Tanisha is a native of Brooklyn, NY.

The dating competition series is produced by Bunim-Murray Productions with Jonathan Murray and Gil Goldschein serving as executive producers.
