CAMILLA POINDEXTER EXPLODED ONTO SEASON EIGHT OF OXYGEN’S BAD GIRLS CLUB, BUT THAT WASN’T HER INTENT. SHE’S JUST A GIRL PURSUING A CAREER IN ENTERTAINMENT AND HAVING FUN IN THE PROCESS. THEHIPHOPDIVA CHATTED WITH HER ABOUT HER FELLOW CAST MATES AND FUTURE PLANS. HERE’S WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY:
HHD: Let’s begin with you telling us a little bit about yourself and what you were doing before you joined the Bad Girls Club cast.
CP: I’m from Long Beach, California and before I was on the Bad Girls Club I was already in the industry modeling and doing some acting. I had already been on a reality show before…”Top Model Cycle 10.”
HHD: Why did you decide to join the Bad Girls Club?
CP: I wanted to do it for the experience and see how it would be to live with other girls. I never had to live with other girls because I am the only child and always had my own room. I never had frat sisters or roommates. I just wanted to see what it would be like.
HHD: You exploded onto the season which made it pretty obvious why you’re a bad girl. But prior to joining the cast what was the baddest thing you had done?
CP: I don’t know. I do a lot of little silly, goofy stuff but I’ve never done anything bad. Probably get drunk and get on the tables in a bar or something. Is that bad?
HHD: No, that’s not bad.
CP: See, I don’t really just do anything bad like go around fighting people.
HHD: I’m going to list off your Bad Girls Club cast mates and I want you to give me the first thing that comes to mind.
CP: A drunk
CP: Crazy, a loose cannon
CP: Buzz Lightyear
CP: Fake Barbie
HHD: How did the experience change your life or you as a person?
CP: This show really made me realize how people are and how they can be so jealous of you for no reason. I’m a really nice person and a cool girl to hang out with; so I didn’t really understand why these girls acted the way they did. Clearly they had issues. I guess it showed me I need to learn a little bit more patience. Sometimes I can snap and go there if people try me. Maybe instead of resulting in hitting people I can probably just talk it out. In that house it’s kind of hard to talk stuff out.
HHD: In going on the show, what did you want your mark to be?
CP: I wanted my mark to be Camilla, being myself. Everyone that knows me before the show knows that I went in there being myself throughout the whole thing. I just wanted everybody to see me for me. I was real and that’s why everybody respects me for. They all tweet me and tell me how I’m so real. I see all kind of fans and they all have nothing but good to say. I think I did a good thing.
HHD: How do you define a bad girl?
CP: I just think a bad girl is someone who can hold her own and do what she wants to do. She’s independent but at the same time has an opinion and stands up for what’s hers. She does what she wants, has fun and lives it up.
HHD: From appearing on the show, what would you say is the biggest misconception people have with you?
CP: I think since the altercation with Christine they probably think I’m fake because I helped her move her stuff out. But there was stuff prior to that day that was not shown. I begged her to stay and then I gave up because if you don’t want to be here then don’t be here. It’s not just like I changed my mind and gave up on her.
HHD: So, what’s up next for you?
CP: Right now I’m hosting some fashion shows with Models, Inc. on May 11th. I’m doing magazines and just hosting some parties and hopefully doing some acting.
HHD: What is your definition of a hip hop diva?
CP: Someone that dresses to impress as far as the hip hop swag and somebody that is strong-minded and willing to go to the top and never be on the bottom. I think a hip hop diva is someone with class that knows the hip hop game.
