Arguably the calmest in the”Bad Girls Club Atlanta”cast, Stephanie George is laid back, open minded and drama free—of the physical fashion at least. On a show where ladies literally come to blows, the black and El Salvadorean dancer often breaks up brawls and gives viewers a glimpse of her party girl lifestyle. Below she talks her exotic dancing background, her highly-discussed relationship with another reality star and her post television aspirations.
rollingout: What was your background before “Bad Girls Club”?
Stephanie: I’m 21, I live in Harlem, I was working as a stripper. I’m el salvadorian and black. I was the token party girl in New York, City, that’s what everyone knew me as.
rollingout: What made you want to be on “Bad Girls Club?”
Stephanie: A lot of people told me I should be on “Bad Girls Club”, I was always acting out in public and they said, ‘oh you’re so crazy.’ I ended up making it and it was kind of like destiny.
rollingout: What about your audition tape do you think made you standout?
Stephanie: I think because I’m so open about me being a stripper and a lot of girls keep it on the down low because they’re ashamed of it. I kind of glorified, it empowers me. I love women, I love men, I love dancing for money.
rollingout: Are you still dancing today?
Stephanie: I’m not but I would never be ashamed of being a dancer. It was a stepping stone in my life. Just being on “Bad Girls” opened my eyes and told me that I need to do something else.
rollingout: One of the big story lines is your relationship with [your boyfriend] Andre. What in particular drew you to him?
Stephanie: I was attracted to him, but I wasn’t. I was done with guys, so when I met Dre I kind of wanted to be his friend. He became a homie, we would have really intimate conversations about life. We connected on a good level as friends. It’s genuine, it’s not a fake relationship. We’re real people.
rollingout: What else are you working on?
Stephanie: I’m going into radio, I’ve always loved interviewing people. I think that’s my calling. It’s weird because it’s like ‘oh you’re a stripper’, and you would think that I would want to do Maxim or Playboy, but I want to be a comedian and do radio. I’ve been doing interviews and I’ve been getting good feedback. My SG radio is on iTunes, my first interview was of Tahiry and Rasheeda of “Love & Hip Hop.” I’m going into acting, I’m doing anything I can to keep me out of the strip club and out of trouble.
