Bad Girls Club (BGC) centers on physical confrontations of seven highly aggressive, quarrelsome and otherwise unruly women. While all seven have vastly different backgrounds and personalities, each has some form of psychological and behavioral issues.

Sometimes a cast member has to be removed from the residence, and in that case a replacement bad girl is introduced.
