Ray J always seems to find his way to the ladies! In his newest one-amongst-many project, he’s teamed up with the Oxygen Network and previous members of their hit series, Bad Girls Club.
Bad Girls Club All Star Battle is a new series that takes the rivalry outside the mansion and onto the playing field, pinning 14 of the biggest names in Bad Girls’ history under one roof to compete for $100,000 and the title of Baddest Bad Girl of All Time.
This new series showcases these larger than life personalities in a new light as they bring their passion and fiery intensity to an outrageous competition testing their athletic ability, wits, and egos.
The Kontrol team has had the pleasure of working with Ray J in the past and we had the opportunity to listen in on a Q&A session about the new series!
When asked to describe what a “bad girl” is to him, his answer was quite the opposite of how some might define one.
“My description of a real bad girl is a girl that never gives up, a girl that is confident in herself, a girl that has been through things and maybe has been knocked down and got right back up and kept fighting and kept going. And you know a real true bad girl is a girl that has maybe been through some things, but still is a winner and continues to go on with her life as a champion.”
As Ray J is no stranger to being the only man in a house full of women, he compared his experiences between the two series “For the Love of Ray J” and “Bad Girls Club All Star Battle.”
“I’ve been in a space that was similar to this before where you know I had to deal with a lot of girls’ emotions in one house, but this is a total step up from that. This is on a whole other level – the Bad Girls Club, the Bad Girls All Star Battle. I mean this has pushed me to the limit as far as you know my control, and my authority, and making sure everything ran right. And they got the right instructions and they were excited to go out and win the challenges, so it was definitely a great experience for me.”
“My heart was connected you know with the concept, with the girls, with being in the house, with everything that was put together with this show, so I mean I was really truly connected and I think they felt that. I think they understood that with my tone, and my delivery and just you know how excited I was to be a part of the team.”
While some may think this just another reality TV show based around belligerent women who can’t keep their hands to themselves, Ray J believes this series will resonate with viewers a little differently.
“I think besides the challenges, you know besides the drama that comes along you know with the Bad Girls Club and the Bad Girls All Star Battle is there is substance behind this show. I mean some of these girls are coming on this show to win this money for real positive reasons and reasons that I think is really going to connect with the viewers.
Like there is one girl, Flo. She is trying to win the money to help her daughter you know have a better life you know as a single mom. Another bad girl is trying to help her brother get out of foster care, and I think her winning the money will help her do that.
So besides it being a great show with challenges, there is also substance to this show and certain reasons why these girls are here is real touching and that’s one of the things that really connected me to the show as well.”
This one actually sounds quite interesting! Will you be tuning in on Tuesdays at 9PM ET/PT on Oxygen?
