Review Archives – LUSHWORTHY

If you grew up in Atlanta, or any other city in the Southeast for that matter, the mention of Chattanooga, Tennessee probably brings back memories of lengthy fields trips to the Tennessee Aquarium or family trips to Lookout Mountain. With such nostalgic memories, you’d probably be surprised to hear that Chattanooga is actually quite the Lushworthy city.

During a trip to Chattanooga, which thankfully took place before the holiday rush, I had the opportunity to experience the Lushworthy side of The Chattanoogan Hotel, one of the city’s premier hotels.

My brunch plate, which was devoured within minutes, and mimosas.

Although the Sunday Champagne Brunch at The Chattanoogan Hotel was quite literally the last part of our trip, I absolutely have to start here. In fact, the hotel was put on my radar because of their brunch. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint. First off, not only is the Sunday Champagne Brunch buffet-style, they also serve bottomless champagne and mimosa. As someone who drinks and dines in the city of Atlanta, I can tell you that brunch with a standard meal and bottomless mimosas will easily cost you at least $30. Sunday Champagne Brunch at The Chattanoogan Hotel is only $21.95, and that includes your champagne and mimosas.

I received a press copy of the first episode of “Bad Girls Club New Orleans” over the weekend and I thought to myself, “I sure wish this was relevant enough to review on Lushworthy.” Then I came to the obvious realization that the Bad Girls are the biggest group of lushes on television and that a review on here is actually pretty suitable. So here goes…

For the past season or two “Bad Girls Club” has kicked off their season premiere with an extremely chaotic scene that usually ends with some kind of physical confrontation. You get all excited about the mayhem you’re going to see in the first episode and then they hit you with the “17 Days Earlier” and rewind to the girls arriving (peacefully) at their mansion. And they’ve yet again stuck with that formula for this season. I’m personally not a fan of it. I feel like they show you all this action in the beginning knowing that the rest of the episode won’t be nearly as action-packed. There were of course a few crazy moments in the episode, but nothing like what you see in the first few minutes.

If I could sum up the season premiere using just a few words they’d be crazy Creole, voodoo dolls, Shawty Lo, and major pizza disrespect. Once you’ve seen the episode you’ll know exactly what I’m referring to. Now moving on to our seven lushes…

Why does it seem like there’s always at least two Bad Girls who hail from New York City? And they all manage to be quite crazy. Well, you’ve got two of those this season. You’ve got a “Goofy Gangster,” an intimidating lesbian chic, a go-go dancer, and a few other nutcases. There’s also one life-sized voodoo doll that I’m pretty sure one of the Bad Girls thinks is a real person (bless her poor, confused little soul). In past seasons there’s been quite a few girls who ended up leaving the show before it concludes, but after watching this first episode there’s only one Bad Girl that I think would voluntarily leave the house.

Overall the episode proved to be very entertaining in that typical “these girls are all completely out of their minds” way that has become so familiar when it comes to the “Bad Girls Club” series.

Be sure to check out the “Bad Girls Club New Orleans” season premiere on August 1 at 9/8c on Oxygen.
