Meet the women of Oxygen's 'Bad Girls Club: Highland Park'

The NSFW trailer above is for the upcoming season of Oxygen’s "Bad Girls Club: Chicago" – or as I like to call it, “Bad Girls Club: Highland Park.” It features seven women with strong personalities living together for three months in a mansion, surprisingly located in the affluent and somewhat haughty North Shore suburb of Highland Park.

Like past seasons of “Bad Girls Club,” the drama-filled “Chicago” season will be heavy on shouting, cursing, punching, hair pulling, kissing, grinding and, occasionally, twerking. Here’s how the premise of the show is described in an Oxygen press release:

“Under the guidance of a life coach, these Bad Girls will attempt to confront their issues head on, but will chaos still rule or will they be able to put aside their differences and live peacefully under one roof?”

My money is on chaos.

But it’s not all shouting matches and fist fights in the trailer – even if that’s what helped make the “Bad Girls” franchise Oxygen’s most popular show. There appears to be at least some camaraderie among cast members. In one of the more heart-felt moments of the trailer, one woman seems to give her peer a pep talk.

“We’re seven girls in this house,” she said passionately. “We are the ‘Bad Girls.’ We have to stick together. You’re my b****.”

Sorry, I just got goose bumps.

“Bad Girls Club Chicago” is one of three reality TV show airing this year that filmed in the Chicago area along with Reelz’s “The Capones” and Bravo’s “100 Days of Summer.” The show is currently scheduled to premiere May 13.

    2012’s “Magic Mike” and its sequel, “Magic Mike XXL,” could have been so stupid, and I’m sure those who haven’t seen either one assume that they are.
