Oxygen’s “Bad Girls Club” continues to make good girls go bad, and bad girls go badder.
One of the contestants on season 10: Atlanta, certainly lives up to that.
Paula, aka “Hell on Heels,” was born and raised in Chicago. The filming was the first time she had been in Hotlanta, which she said she was excited about. “I love Atlanta,” she said, noting the weather is great (but not the bugs), and that she enjoyed the party scene. She noted Atlanta is in the south but it is city, and that that’s the perfect combination.
Paula got involved in the show after watching it for a while. “I thought it was something I could do,” she said. She sent in a bio, went to a casting call in Nashville, “and the rest is history,” she said.
“It was an experience. It’s a lot harder than people would assume it to be. ”The house itself is just dope,” she said, adding it’s “huge.”
Paula said episode three, which aired this past Tuesday, is a good overview of what viewers can expect on the show. It had funny moments but also had drama. She said the show also has hookups, and at times it’s hilariously funny. She said there’s a “little bit of everything this season.”
During the filming she was also involved in a prank on housemate Janae. Paula said it came about because she was bored, “in the house with nothing to do. It’s the devil’s playground, so let’s go prank Janae.” Though she thought Janae could take the prank, Paula said Janae, who left the house on episode three, was a poor sport about it. “She couldn’t cut it in the house. I tried to bring her back in, but I’m not gonna fight her battles.”
The cast will reportedly head overseas to vacation in Greece during the season, and also compete in the first- ever “Bad Girls Games.”
When she’s not being a bad girl, Paula is a hair stylist. She said she has been doing hair all of her life. Though she got her degree from Jackson State University, “doing hair was always my first love.” She said she will continue styling hair after the show.
Paula said viewers should tune in every Tuesday at 8/ 7 central. “You never know what will happen.” Paula said she is the “calm, cool and collected one in the house,” and that viewers should tune in to “See when I explode. It will be interesting.”
“The Bad Girls Club” has run for 10 seasons on Oxygen, and has also spawned spinoffs such as “Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too,” a dating show featuring former bad girls that has been hosted by former Bad Girl Tanisha Thomas. Thomas was also in spinoff “Tanisha Gets Married” on the network.
“Bad Girls Club” is produced by Bunim/ Murray Productions with Jonathan Murray, Gil Goldschein, Troy VanderHeyden and Maria Pepin executive producing, with Trish Gold as co-exec producer.
Dakota Fanning might be one of the “Very Good Girls” in her 2013 coming-of-age drama, but that doesn’t mean she didn’t get the chance to show off her bad self in the flick. The actress bares more than just her soul in the film, going nude for the first time on camera.
“Yeah, well, I’ve never done that before and I’m very newly allowed to do that,” she explained to MTV News at the Sundance Film Festival, where she was out promoting the movie. “I was newly 18, so yeah, it was, it’s kind of a sensitive thing, but it’s a part of life.”
Fanning grows up big time in the film, which follows her and her pal, played by Elizabeth Olsen, as they embark on their journey through adolescence, on a quest to lose their virginity, and all the repercussions that come along with it. It also means that Fanning had to capture that life-changing moment in the film. “No one’s ever comfortable [doing love scenes],” she explained, before Olsen had some advice on getting through them.
“No, you just have to go for it. Sorry, I didn’t do a sex scene in this movie so I should shut up,” she quipped.
The actor who got to mix it up with Fanning in the scene, Boyd Holbrook, notes that it’s the realism of the scene that will have fans connecting to what Fanning is going through in that instant. “As in life it’s not always so perfect and glossy and seamless,” he said. “It’s quite awkward sometimes especially with that. This film’s about its going into life, first sexual experience, so it’s all about the environment and not taking it too serious.”

Ke$ ha is teaming with MTV to give fans a look inside her fabulous, freaky — and frequently furry — world with a brand-new documentary series, called (rather appropriately) “Ke$ ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life.”
The new series is set to premiere on MTV this April, and follows Ke$ ha as she navigates the drama and madness of both her personal and professional live, traveling the globe and recording her Warrior album. Shot over the course of two years, and directed by Ke$ ha’s brother, Lagan Sebert and family friend Steven Greenstreet, the show promises to give fans an intimate, no-limits look at her rise to superstardom … and her attempts to follow-up that success with her sophomore album. And in doing so, it also explores family bonds, love, friendship and the passion Ke$ ha pours into her music.
“You might have heard my voice on the radio, seen me onstage or in a music video, but that’s only a part of the story,” Ke$ ha told MTV News. “With this documentary series I’m revealing a more complete picture of what my life is really like. It’s not all glamorous but it’s all real.”
And since we know you can’t wait until April to get a glimpse of that reality, we’ve got an exclusive sneak peek at “My Crazy Beautiful Life” right now: a down-and-dirty backstage pass where Ke$ ha, clearly spent from her time on stage, guzzles water and proudly proclaims to “party for a living.”
And that’s just part of the story. It’s her life, on her terms. So make sure to tune in to “Ke$ ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life,” premiering this April on MTV!
Are you excited for Ke$ ha’s “My Crazy Beautiful Life?” Let us know in the comments below.

This is my first ever lyrics video, I hope I don’t disappoint! I really love this man’s music and felt this was a perfect opportunity to make a lyrics vid. In case you didn’t realize… Song: Stay Awhile Song By: Ryan Star For those that prefer to just read them all together: Clock’s marching at the double time- Every dollar has become a dime. Hearts breaking at the speed of sound, Falling down, all around. (Oh oh-) Bombs lighting up the eastern sky- The backroom deals and the bottom lines. The earth’s shaking but we don’t know why- A million fires, oceans rise, oh oh- I leave it all when I feel you near- What I’m saying is I need you here. Even though love never seems to last, If you think we got a chance- Stay awhile, oh, you’ve got to stay awhile. (Oh oh-) These days are wild, so baby won’t you stay awhile? (Oh oh-) Drop a needle on the Belle Brigade- We’ll slow dance ’til the moonlight fades. Tell me now that you’ll never leave, Always stay here with me. (Oh oh-) Keep me safe from the circus show- The bullshit and the blowing smoke. The knife hidden under every sleeve- Stab your back, watch you bleed. (Oh oh-) They’re gonna tell you what you want to hear, Like, “I can make you a star next year,” Well, if New York City’s lights are so bright, How come so many people crying tonight? Stay awhile, oh, you’ve got to stay awhile. (Oh oh-) These days are wild, so baby won’t you stay awhile? Ohh, ohh, ohh, ohh- Ohh- Let your hair fall around your face- I would kill just to …

Tonight is a big night in the world of Fox’s New Girl. The show brings back the beloved True American game, but even better than that is a guest star that appears: Brooklyn Decker.
The former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover model spent a weekly recently filming this week’s episode with the cast.
“When they called with the original premise of the episode, they said we’d be playing True American,” she said. “All I really remembered of the game was that you drink a lot of alcohol and shout out a lot of miscellaneous American history facts.”
Decker plays a bar patron that Nick (Jack Johnson) and Schmidt (Max Greenfield) are trying to win over. Jess (Zooey Deschanel) raises the stakes by instituting “Clinton Rules,” which I won’t spoil for you here. Decker’s character has a thing for sad men and the boys do not let her down.
“She’s kind of a psycho,” said Decker. “I feel like I’ve been getting cast as that quite a lot lately, so maybe something is going on there.”
Decker is refering to her recent run on FX’s The League. She has also appeared in “Battleship” (supposedly, I do not know anyone who will admit to watching that crap) and “What to Expect When You’re Expecting.”
Will you be watching her tonight?

The beef between Frank Ocean and Chris Brown will not be put to rest anytime soon, particularly because in the wake of their parking-lot brawl over the weekend, Ocean is looking to press charges against Brown.
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore told Reuters on Monday (January 28) that Ocean “is desirous of prosecution in this incident,” which could have serious implications for Brown’s five-year probation from his 2009 assault of on-again, off-again girlfriend Rihanna.
Brown has one more year of probation left to serve from the highly publicized and scrutinized 2009 incident, but this new brawl with Ocean could see him in hot water again. Last June, Brown was injured in a New York nightclub when his and Drake’s respective entourages came to blows, and then back in November, Brown received a stern warning from the judge overseeing his case for failing a drug test conducted when he was fulfilling his court-ordered community service in Virginia last year.
Neither Brown nor Ocean has issued a formal statement on the matter, aside from taking to social media to inform the masses about the scuffle. Brown claimed he was trying to focus on his work, “not negativity,” before later posting a drawing of Jesus on the cross to his Instagram account with the caption: “Painting the way I feel today. Focus on what matters!”
