Ashley Dye is Now Leading a Happy and Content Family Life

Ashley Dye from Bartlett, Illinois, was an original castmate who lasted till the end of the series. She was against bullying from the start due to prior experiences in life and valued loving herself. Seen as quiet and mature, one would have to truly get on her nerves to bring out the bad girl in her. Even though she did get into quite a few ugly brawls, Ashley seems to have matured from her experiences. She married her longtime partner, Matt Olinger, on March 5, 2022. She is the perfect mother to Mackenzie Rae, Matt’s daughter from a previous relationship. The couple’s rainbow baby, Iverson Lee Olinger, was born on April 25, 2021.

Christina Salgado is Set to Embrace Motherhood

Jersey City, New Jersey’s Christina Salgado was given the nickname The Sultry Spitfire, and rightfully so. The gorgeous diva of Puerto Rican descent was an absolute fireball in the house and had a few rough fights with her castmates. Not one to mince words, Christina refused to back down in any situation. It eventually led her to get removed from the house in episode 7 after she was caught in a physical conflict with Rima. However, she did return once again during the finale for the cast photoshoot.

This wasn’t the only time Christina was part of the ‘BGC’ franchise. She also starred in both ‘Baddies ATL,’ where she made it to the end, and ‘Baddies South,’ where she voluntarily chose to exit in the first episode.

While she hoped to win the grand prize to further her music career, she was sadly removed in episode 5 after getting into a physical fight with Rima. Despite not getting to the finale, Erika didn’t let the loss dampen her spirits and applied to the first season of ‘Bad Girls All-Star Battle.’

Sadly, she withdrew from the show in episode 5 after getting injured. Erika has continued performing her rap and shares snippets on her social media.
