Nastasia's Phrase 'Trailer Park White' Offends Shelly on 'Bad Girls Club' (VIDEO)

'The Bad Girls Club'It doesn't matter where they are or who might be around, when the ladies of 'The Bad Girl Club' (Mon., 9PM ET on Oxygen) decide they need to resort to physical violence in their discourse, it's going down. In this case, we're pretty confident Nastasia never fully understood why Shelly was offended, but if Shelly's offended, then Nastasia is going to be twice as offended, and show her who can be angrier.

Nastasia's mother is white, and in describing her she was trying to explain that she's not Italian or any other ethnicity like that. So Nastasia described her as "trailer park white."

Shelly took offense to this for two reasons. It's a blanket negative stereotype of white people, and she grew up in a trailer park. But Nastasia couldn't comprehend what was offensive about that description.

The next thing you know, Shelly was throwing around the b-word and Nastasia was throwing her drinks on Shelly. Because, you know, this is what you do when you're out to dinner. People throw drinks all the time. it's a little known social etiquette that's appreciated in high circles.

This 'Girls Club' is well on its way to becoming a 'Society!'

Hmm. a Couple things stood out to me in that altercation. It doesn't seem like Nastasia understands the differences between "white" and "Italian." The way she words her argument, she makes it seem like all italians are white when really Italian is a nationality not a "race." In addition, she states that she's white which is even more confusing to me. But that's really another disscusion...

I don't think any of those girls think about their arguments during an altercation, and analysing it is a bit of a waste of time. Nevertheless, I'll join you and comment on your second point. If she is in fact of mixed "race", she could call herself either race in that situation because technically she is neither one nor the other, but both. For her, it's culturally expected that you call yourself a black person if you have the distinguishing features of black people (and have a black parent), because there is no denying your features or skin colour. I think when she said she was white, she was referring to her parentage as opposed to her own race/the colour of her skin. Ethnicity is similar; If my father is Norwegian and my mother Jamaican, then in an description of myself I could include that I am Norwegian and Jamaican, even if I was born to a separate and distinct ethnicity.
