BRAVO MEDIA'S "TABATHA TAKES OVER" REVAMPS AND REVITALIZES BUSINESSES WHEN SEASON FIVE RETURNS THURSDAY, APRIL 4 AT 10PM ET/PT
New Season Includes Various Non-Salon Businesses and Surprise Visits to Past Takeovers to See Where They Are Now
NEW YORK - March 6, 2013 - Tabatha Coffey returns, putting businesses back on track with her entrepreneurial expertise when the new season of Bravo Media's "Tabatha Takes Over" premieres Thursday, April 4 at 10:00pm ET/PT. The blunt, charismatic, successful Australian stylist travels across the country, taking over failing establishments and whips them into shape from the ground up. For one week, Tabatha takes over as boss, confiscates the keys and brings her unapologetic, brutally honest opinion and experience to businesses and owners in dire need of her assistance. Tabatha lays down her laws not only for salons, but will take over a gay night club, sports bar, Mexican restaurant, barber shop and nail salon. In a special episode, Tabatha will also return to some of her most memorable takeovers from previous seasons for a surprise visit.

Tabatha kicks off season five when she visits the up and coming area of East Nashville, Tennessee where celebrity stylist Tanzy Clark Wright's salon Mogulz is in a tizzy. Although Tanzy has been a pillar of her African-American community for years, she has struggled to evolve her business to attract the diverse clientele that now inhabit the booming area. Not only has the salon fallen out of touch with the community, the pregnant shopaholic Tanzy has lost her drive, her money and control of her staff. To save Tanzy's salon, Tabatha must get her to step up, be responsible and lead her and her staff to embrace the diverse wave of the future.
