The seventh season of Bad Girls Club is titled Bad Girls Club: New Orleans and premiered on August 1, 2011, on Oxygen. Production of the season began in February 2011, and was located in New Orleans, Louisiana.
On February 16, 2011, it was reported that the production was using the home of former Hornets basketball coach Byron Scott in Kenner, Louisiana for what was then called "Bad Girls Boot Camp." Interim Code Enforcement Director Tamithia Shaw said "[she] understands the site will be used for four months, but that pre-production work apparently has been going on for two or three weeks." She said that the cast was not there. The news initially created outrage among the neighbors. This is the second season to take place in a different location from Los Angeles.
In March 2011, three cast members modeled House of Lounge lingerie at New Orleans Fashion Week.
On March 13, 2011, TMZ.com reported that production was banned from at least eight clubs due to the clubs "not wanting to be associated with the show's bad image." The cast were not allowed to attend Pierre Thomas's Mardi Gras party at The Metropolitan Night Club.
On April 12, 2011, cast member Tasha Malek went to an on-duty cop outside the Bad Girls house to make a formal complaint against fellow cast member Nastasia Townsend. Malek told the cop that Townsend was placing her personal belongings into a garbage bag while telling her "she needed to leave the house," which escalated into a physical fight as they wrestled to the floor. The two were issued summons by the police for disturbing the peace and disorderly conduct.
On July 6, 2011, the house tour was released for public viewing. The tour hosts were Jeff Eyser, the production designer, and Alexis Karpf the set decorator. Upon entering the house, Eyser announced that the production group had given the house a "darker" and "sexier" direction than the previous season. In the grand foyer, usually a place where the girls interact with each other without communication, were pictures of this season's "bad girls". The rooms were given a New Orleans twist, such as copper pipe. The phone room took a jungle-like and a green house turn. In the main room of the house, the girls were welcomed to an indoor bar, a home computer, and a contemporary living room influenced by Mardi Gras. They also had an indoor hot tub.
Eyser noted that everything in the main room, such as the indoor bar, was custom made. The walls were decorated with New Orleans artist Sarah Dunn's botanical paintings. The dining room was a small blue room with no doors and a large painting of New Orleans during the early 20th century. The kitchen, which featured a marble table, included furniture from IKEA. Unlike previous seasons where all bedrooms were not similar, these bedrooms looked the same. The make-up room featured early 20th-century furniture. Karpf said that the make-up room is her favorite and has an "industrial feel". In the same room, the girls were given Voodoo dolls that resembled themselves. The champagne room had dark furniture of a mixture of red and black pillows and sofas. In the middle of the room was a stripper pole. The back yard featured a pool table, swimming pool, lounge chairs and a pond.
