*The Ray J-hosted “Bad Girls All-Star Battle” drew record ratings for its premiere on Oxygen last month, delivering its highest scoring night in the history of the network.
The weekly competitions, featuring the best (or rather worst) ladies from the “Bad Girls” franchise through the seasons, can get just as ratchet as its charismatic ringmaster, who has had his share of out-of-control TV moments – mostly on his VH1 series “For the Love of Ray J.”
The artist, currently working on a new album titled “Raydiation 2,” says the showbiz Ray J is not always the William Ray Norwood Jr. one would encounter when the cameras stop rolling.
“There’s a Ray J character that people see,” he told us. “But I think when people start talking to me or hang out with me or understand my story and where I come from, you get a whole new side of who I am.”
Below, Ray J says that his success in music and television boils down to one thing — taking risks.
“Bad Girls All Star Battle” airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on Oxygen. Watch a promo of Tuesday’s episode below.
