Are you ready to play host for a houseful of reality-show attention addicts à la MTV's Real World: Denver a few years back?
If not, you'd better get ready -- because Bunim/Murray, Real World's production company, has just placed a Craigslist ad announcing, "THE BAD GIRLS CLUB IS COMING TO DENVER!" Hide the children -- and schedule that boob job, stat.
For the six of you who'd rather watch PBS, Bad Girls Club is a long-running staple of the Oxygen network. Here's the website description of its current incarnation, set in Miami:
For the first time, the fifth season of "Bad Girls Club" travels south to the hot beaches of Miami. The new batch of seven self-proclaimed "Bad Girls" live together with similarly explosive personalities, resulting in constant clashing between housemates. Besides hitting the trendy South Beach clubs, these "Bad Girls" are ready to take it up a notch -- with manipulative backstabbing friendships, in-house love triangles, exotic trips to the Caribbean, unexpected alliances and endless mind games.
In other words, Club members offer wholesome family entertainment -- if, that is, you've got the kind of family that regularly gets into physical confrontations, like the one pictured here involving Lea and Kristen.
The aforementioned Craigslist ad doesn't specifically say a future season of the show will be based in Denver, but that's certainly the implication.
Here's the text:
