Cast of ‘Bad Girls Club’ Season 1: Where Are They Now?

Reality television show Bad Girls Club aired back on December 5, 2006, and managed to garner a healthy audience viewership. The show, abbreviated as BGC, was created by Jonathan Murray and originally aired on the Oxygen network.

The show featured seven different women [each season] who are unknown to each other and focuses on the altercations and physical confrontations of the unruly, quarrelsome, and aggressive women.

Those said women would live together in a mansion for three months altogether, and the crew would film them. Additionally, there will be certain rules that the women have to follow, and if they are caught breaking them, they would have to leave the show – unless the producers say otherwise.

Spending those three months in a confined place with seven unknown women could be tough, and tensions might rise on several occasions – which has happened in the history of Bad Girls Club’s 17 seasons.

The 17th season of the show aired on February 14, 2017, and ended its run on May 2, 2017. After that, no update on the 18th season has been reported, though some spin-off shows have been made.

In the meanwhile, have a look at the cast of the first season of Bad Girls Club and know where they are now.

The cast of ‘Bad Girls Club’ season one

The season premiere of Bad Girls Club’s first season aired on December 5, 2006. The show consisted of 20-22 minutes-long 22 episodes, and the season finale aired on June 5, 2007.

The original seven cast members were Aimee Landi, Hripsime “Ripsi” Terzian, Jodie Howell, Kerry Harvick, Leslie Ramsue, Tyla “Ty” Colliers, and Zara Sprankle. However, two of those seven bad girls were removed by the production department, and one willingly left the show.

Later, those three women were replaced by DeAnn Witt, Joanna “JoJo” Hernandez, and Andrea Laing.

Bad Girls Club: Where are they now?

Not counting the three women that were added later – with no disrespect, of course – here is a detailed look at the four originally casted “bad girls” and where they are now.

1. Aimee Landi

Landi was 24 years of age at the time of the filming of Bad Girls Club season one. It was mentioned that she was from South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

During her time in the show, she got in several fights repeatedly, which she has credited to her father, who encouraged her to stand up for herself. She had mentioned that she doesn’t take attitude from others and pulls no punches while dealing with anyone.

After her time in the Oxygen show, she even returned to the 2007 television show titled Bad Girls Road Trip. However, following that appearance, she has made herself scarce and has been living a low-key life.

As for what she is doing now, it’s reported that Landi currently works as a roadie for some renowned musicians. Her Instagram bio also seems to corroborate this report. But, no other details besides this are known about her as her Instagram handle is private.

2. Zara Sprankle

Sprankle was 22 and lived in Cicero, New York, at the time of filming. She was one of the few bad girls that had made it to the end of the whole season. 

Due to her popularity, she was asked to return to the follow-up show Bad Girls Road Trip, which she agreed to. However, like Landi, she has not left any detail on what she has been upto after her stint on TV ended.

It seems like she has been keeping herself away from the entertainment industry and focusing more on her normal life. Currently, she doesn’t have any social media handles, and the existing ones are either deleted or made private.

Nonetheless, back in 2015, it was reported that she was in a relationship with her long-time boyfriend and was a mother to two children. But, after some time, she had deleted all the pictures of her partner from her Facebook account.

It led some people to speculate that the couple had broken up. Still, nothing could be said about that as nothing has been confirmed, and her personal life still remains a mystery thanks to her privacy. For now, it seems she is relishing life with her kids, pets, friends, and family.

3. Kerry Harvick

At the time of filming, Harvick was 31-year-old and resided in Nashville, Tennessee – she reportedly lives there to this date.

Like her fellow original cast members, Harvick gained quite the popularity for her stint in Bad Girls Club season one and even came back for the show Bad Girls Road Trip.

As for her present situation, she has been happily married to her long-time boyfriend, David Kersh. The couple shared the wedding vows in a lovely ceremony held in Comanche, Texas.

They are parents to two children from their marriage – an older daughter named Sienna and a younger son named Blade (b. October 31, 2014). Since the birth of their kids, the married couple’s bond has further strengthened, and they happily reside and work together.

Talking about the work they do together, it has been reported that the husband and wife duo have entered the house flipping and house renovation business. In addition, they often share lovely moments with their kids via their social media handles.

Before Harvick’s marriage with Kersh, she was married to Daryle Singletary. However, they decided to split after some time and eventually divorced.

4. Jodi Howell

As per the Bad Girls Club fandom website, Howell was 29 years of age and resided in Baltimore, Maryland, at the time of filming. The outlet further reported that she was a Playboy Bunny with a brain.

She used to serve as a conservative office worker in the day, and upon the night, she used to turn into a sexy social butterfly who often engaged in fights with girls in bars. It’s further reported that she was a rebel from a religious background who loves to “have fun and is aware of her outrageous, sometimes vindictive, behavior.”

Like most of her castmates did, she appeared on Bad Girls Road Trip after appearing on Bad Girls Club. During her time in Bad Girls Club, she had lots of arguments and had even left the mansion after a feud with Kerry Harvick.

Following her stint in the reality TV show, she decided not to return to the entertainment industry and live a life away from the limelight. It’s currently unknown what she does as a profession.

Coming into her personal life, it was reported in 2015 that she was dating a man named Brian. However, due to her secrecy over her life, it couldn’t be said if she and her partner are still together. But, she reportedly has a daughter named Viviana Annette.

Small-Town Stories Are Changing the Landscape of Modern Films, Here’s How

Small-Town Stories Are Changing the Landscape of Modern Films, Here’s How

In recent years, the film industry has significantly shifted towards stories set in small towns, bringing fresh perspectives and untold narratives to the forefront.

These stories offer a glimpse into the nuanced lives of communities often overlooked in mainstream cinema, challenging audiences to engage with diverse experiences and environments. This movement towards small-town tales is not just a trend but a transformative force in modern filmmaking, reshaping how stories are told and what stories are considered worth telling.

The Rise of the Underdog

One notable example of this shift can be seen in the Possum Trot movie, a film that brings the intricate dynamics of rural life into the limelight. Such movies go beyond mere settings; they delve into the heart and soul of communities, showcasing the strength, resilience, and complexity of people living far from urban sprawl.

This focus on underrepresented locales has broadened the thematic horizons of cinema and democratized storytelling, allowing for more voices and experiences to be heard.

Authentic Representation

Small town stories provide a platform for authentic representation, showcasing the realities of life in these communities. This authenticity resonates with audiences, offering a break from the often-glamorized portrayals of city life in movies. The realness of the characters, their struggles, and their triumphs strike a chord, creating a more inclusive and relatable cinematic experience.

Diverse Storytelling Perspectives

The shift towards small-town narratives has introduced a variety of storytelling perspectives, enriching the film industry with diverse tales that might otherwise remain untold. These stories challenge stereotypes and offer a more nuanced understanding of places and people frequently marginalized or misunderstood in mainstream media.

Innovative Storytelling Techniques

Filmmakers exploring small town stories often employ innovative storytelling techniques to capture the essence of these communities. From unique cinematography that highlights the natural beauty of rural landscapes to narratives that weave together the folklore and traditions of a place, these films push the boundaries of conventional storytelling.

Economic Impact on Small Towns

Interestingly, films set in small towns can have a positive economic impact on the locations where they are shot. They bring attention to lesser-known areas, potentially boosting tourism and local business. This symbiotic relationship between filmmaking and location benefits the art of cinema and the communities that inspire it.

Fostering Community and Connection

Small town stories often center around community, belonging, and connection themes. These universal themes resonate widely, reminding viewers of the importance of human connections and the power of community, regardless of the setting. Films highlighting these aspects can foster a sense of unity and understanding among audiences.

Challenging Mainstream Norms

By bringing small town narratives to the forefront, modern films challenge mainstream norms and expand what is considered worthy of cinematic exploration. This shift not only diversifies the stories seen on screen but also challenges audiences to question and expand their perspectives.

The Future of Small Town Stories in Cinema

As the film industry continues to evolve, the importance of small town stories remains undeniable. These narratives counterbalance the urban-centric tales that dominate cinema, providing a refreshing change of pace and depth. The continued interest in small town stories signifies a broader desire for films that reflect the full spectrum of human experience, promising a future of cinema that is more inclusive, diverse, and representative of our world.

Incorporating small town stories profoundly changes the landscape of modern films. These narratives bring depth, diversity, and authenticity to cinema, challenging conventional storytelling and offering audiences new perspectives on the world. 

As filmmakers continue to explore the rich tapestry of life in small communities, we can expect to see a broader, more inclusive representation of human experiences on screen. The shift towards these stories reflects a changing industry and society, which values the stories of all its members, regardless of where they live.

Three True-Crime Documentaries Coming to Netflix in April 2024

Netflix has a wide range of TV shows and movies.

Alongside them, Netflix also hosts a lot of documentaries. It has a wide range of documentaries but the true-crime genre is the one that has its audience sitting on the edge of their seats.

There are various true-crime documentaries and docuseries on the platform, including American Nightmare, Girl in the Picture, Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich, Tiger King, and Don’t F**k with Cats: Hunting an Internet Killer, among others.

In April 2024, various documentaries and docuseries are coming to Netflix. However, the three most anticipated true-crime shows are — What Jennifer Did, Crime Scene Berlin: Nightlife Killer, and Files of the Unexplained

Here is all we know about it.

‘What Jennifer Did’ 

What Jennifer Did is an upcoming documentary directed by Jenny Popplewell, the creator of another famous Netflix documentary, American Murder: The Family Next Door.

What Jennifer Did digs into the frightening story of Jennifer Pan, who plotted to murder her parents. The crime, disguised as a heist gone wrong, unravels through police interrogation film and interviews, showing Pan’s network of lies leading up to the incident.

Pan is a Canadian woman who was convicted of a 2010 kill-for-hire attack on her parents, which killed her mother and injured her father. The crime occurred at the Pan house in Unionville, Markham, Ontario, in the Greater Toronto Area. 

According to her exact account, several gunmen entered the house, forcefully retrained her and her parents, then shot them. Her father, Huei Hann, was sent to the hospital, and her mother, Bich Ha, died instantaneously.

A whole new image appears as the law enforcement personnel piece together the facts. Pan plotted the entire operation with her drug dealer boyfriend, Daniel Wong, whom her parents had forbidden her from dating. 

This motivated her to seek his help and devise a plan to murder her parents. This threatening notion was carried out in the form of a burglary, with Pan as the victim. The documentary will also concentrate on her arrest and the legal processes.

What Jennifer Did will be released on April 10, 2024.

‘Crime Scene Berlin: Nightlife Killer’ 

As the name of the documentary suggests, Crime Scene Berlin: Nightlife Killer is based on true events that occurred in Berlin. The series examines the case of several odd and unusual killings.

In 2012, three guys were murdered and robbed in Berlin after being unintentionally drugged. While the murderer was called ‘The Darkroom Murderer’ at the time, just one occurred in a dark room at a homosexual bar in Berlin. 

‘Crime Scene Berlin: Nightlife Killer’ will be released on April 3, 2024.

However, the murderer did look for guys in and around the city’s party scene to prey on victims. Only when one of his targets survived his attack and the assassin attempted to purchase a train ticket with one of the deceased men’s credit cards did the inquiry begin to narrow.

Jan Zabeil and Caroline Schaper directed this true crime show and Netflix will begin streaming the series on April 3, 2024. 

‘Files of the Unexplained’

Files of the Unexplained is an upcoming terrifying eight-episode docu-series that talks about strange encounters, weird disappearances, disturbing incidents, the mystery of mutilated feet washing up, and more. 

This investigative documentary series examines genuine stories that defy explanations and talk about witnessing weird encounters and strange events. 

Files of the Unexplained kind of dives into a similar area as its previous documentaries like Unsolved Mysteries, Haunted, and 28 Days Haunted. According to its plot on Netflix, the series is described as “Eerie encounters, bizarre disappearances, haunting events, and more perplexing phenomena are explored in this chilling investigative docuseries.”

The docuseries will be released on April 3, 2024.

‘Cowboy Carter’ — Everything You Need to Know About Beyonce’s New Album

‘Cowboy Carter’ — Everything You Need to Know About Beyonce’s New Album

When Beyoncé announced her 2022 album Renaissance, she made it clear that it was merely the first installment of a multi-act body of work.

And now, after over two years of waiting, the singer has revealed that Act II is on the way — Cowboy Carter. Cowboy Carter, also known as Act II: Cowboy Carter or just Act II, is Beyoncé’s eighth studio album, set to be released on March 29, 2024, by Parkwood Entertainment and Columbia Records. 

It is the second chapter of Beyoncé’s trilogy project, developed during the COVID-19 epidemic, and follows Renaissance (2022).

The then-untitled album was first announced on February 11, 2024, during Super Bowl LVIII, when Verizon Communications aired a Super Bowl commercial, titled ‘Can’t B Broken,’ in which Beyoncé tried to ‘break the Internet’ by doing increasingly outlandish means —  from releasing a jazz saxophone record and performing on top of the Las Vegas Sphere to building an AI version of herself and launching a “Barbey” doll collection.

After all of the ideas failed, Beyoncé closed the advertisement by saying, “Okay, they ready. Drop the new music.” Following the broadcast, the singer shared a preview video for Act II on Instagram. 

The video paid tribute to the 1984 movie, Paris, Texas, which mentions border blasters, and incorporates Chuck Berry’s 1955 song ‘Maybellene.’ The singer’s official website was updated the same day, announcing her eighth studio album, Act II, which would be released on March 29, 2024.

The album’s two main singles, ‘Texas Hold ‘Em’ and ‘16 Carriages,’ were then made available for digital download and streaming. On March 12, 2024, Beyoncé stated that the album would be called Cowboy Carter via a teaser poster with a western saddle and sash. 

She released the album cover on Instagram on March 19, 2024, and teased surprises and collaborations on the album. On March 20, 2024, she unveiled a limited edition unique cover featuring a ribbon that says “act ii BEYINCÉ,” referring to a generational family surname.

On March 27, 2024, she unveiled the album’s tracklist via a themed poster. She shared a graphic on Instagram of the album’s tracklist, which was inspired by classic Chitlin’ Circuit posters.

It includes the titles “Dolly P” and “Smoke Hour Willie Nelson,” implying possible collaborations with Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson. Similarly, ‘Jolene,’ was written on the poster, which netizens believe is a cover or reinterpretation of the Parton’s song of the same name.

‘The Linda Martell Show,’ has also been mentioned on the poster, possibly referring to the first Black woman to achieve commercial success in the country genre. 

The themed poster revealing the album’s tracklist has been confusing a lot of netizens. The following things have been mentioned on the poster, so possibly, these are the songs on the album.

They are —  ‘Texas Hold ‘Em,’ ‘16 Carriages,’ ‘Ameriican Requiem,’ ‘Blackbiird,’ ‘Protector,’ ‘My Rose,’ ‘Bodyguard,’ ‘Daughter,’ ‘Spaghettii,’ ‘Alliigator Tears,’ ‘Smoke Hour Willie Nelson,’ ‘Smoke Hour II,’ ‘Just for Fun,’ ‘II Most Wanted,’ ‘Levii’s Jeans,’ ‘Flamenco,’ ‘Ya Ya,’ ‘Oh Louisiana,’ ‘Desert Eagle,’ ‘Riiverdance,’ ‘Tyrant,’ ‘II Hands II Heaven,’ ‘Sweet Honey Buckin’,’ ‘Amen,’ ‘Jolene,’ and ‘The Linda Martell Show.’ 

It looks like we will only get to know the collaborations and tracklist of Cowboy Carter after its release on March 29, 2024.
