If you see a bunch of ladies acting poorly in front of cameras, perhaps screaming or throwing down, it may not be “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
Instead, it may very well be Oxygen’s “Bad Girls Club,” which is being shot in Buckhead through October 5, according to the Georgia Film, Music & Digital Entertainment Office. The office heard Atlanta possesses a huge viewing audience for this show. (Oxygen itself hasn’t made any official announcement yet but a spokeswoman acknowledged that this is indeed true.)
“Bad Girls Club,” which I readily admit I have never watched, takes seven rebellious women and attempt to “tame” them into more civilized folk. Atlanta is the tenth season.
The show has been taped in past years in Los Angeles, New Orleans, Las Vegas and in the current season airing now, Cabo San Lucas in Mexico. Ratings this past Monday were solid for Oxygen: 1.5 million viewers (though that isn’t nearly as many as E!’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” or VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.”)
