Vixen Chat: 'Bad Girls Club' Star Wilmarie Sena Talks Making Amends With Nikki, Upcoming Projects & More
Former Bad Girls Club season 6 star Wilmarie Sena checked in towards the end of the season and brought her 'keep it real' attitude with her. As the replacement for Ashley King, she is most notable for her infamous throw down with Nikki Galladay. Now that the days of being a bad girl are over, the artsy Vixen is focusing on her goals and aspirations that she's had since the beginning.
Wilmarie has brains and beauty and wants the world to meet her geeky, passionate and talented side. With a new acting role and video game in the works, she plans to bring awareness to the seriousness of human trafficking and introduce us to the real her.

It was kind of weird because when I entered the limo the vibe was kind of like they were done doing the whole show. So I come in all excited because I’m like new to the house and they’re all like yea we are done with this we want to go home. It was such a weird energy, but I made it work and I didn’t let their energy affect me and I was just on with my happy self.
On the show you were portrayed as a drunk, tell me how things have changed from then until now.
It’s crazy because the show showed that I was a crazy drunk but I’m really not. Now I really don’t go out partying that much and you got to understand in BGC you have nothing to do but drink and party so I’m kind of really mellow, I’ll go out to a bar for a few drinks and then I’m done.
Have you and Nikki ever made amends?
Actually we recently did, it’s freaking hilarious. It’s been 2 years and she used to @ me on Twitter, never followed me, but used to @ me little insider jokes and I would retweet. But now it’s kind of like I follow you and she re-followed, so it’s like ok we’re good.
So kind of like it’s Twitter validated?
Yea, it’s been 2 years, its kind of over, she’s grown up, she’s dong her personal training stuff and she’s not getting on my nerves so I’m good (laughs).
You recently tweeted “Each bad girl is different in her own way and that y’all hate when the public compares y’all. What do you think makes you different from all the rest?
I think I’m different because I was one of the replacements that actually took charge and took more of an initiative than the originals. I really don’t try to be a “bad girl,” like I came into the house and I wanted to party and just have fun and I was very real and it was always me 100%. I think every girl is unique in her own way, and I’m very quiet, but when I’m approached I can be a fighter.
I’m so excited about that because its kind of a mix between The Hacker world and human trafficking and I’m a big advocate for that. I want to open peoples eyes because people don’t know that its one of the top 3 illegal markets right now, it makes like 9 billion to 3.1 billion dollars of profit and people are not aware of this. So, I was excited to see a movie that a group of people were looking to give awareness about this. I’m glad to play Michelle, the main character Anna’s girlfriend, I’m a lesbian in the film, and it’s kind of like she’s working for the government and she’s fed up with corruption and she goes rogue and forms this underground organization and uses her hacking skills to kind of bring down this big trafficking gang.
How have you prepared for that role mentally?
When I was reading it, Michelle’s character is kind of like a supporting girlfriend that is afraid of her mates life, kind of like when your loved one is involved in something and you fear for them and you hope that they are okay all the time. I approached the role like you know when you’re in a relationship and you care so much about someone, I’m bringing that to this.
How do you plan on helping stop human trafficking?
I’m trying to do a series of events to bring awareness of human trafficking victims we’ve been playing around with titles, and it’s like working titles right now like “Bad Girls for Good Girls” because it’s a lot of young women, 75% of human trafficking is females, so its very sad and a lot of people don’t know. It happens to young females as well and I think people need to wake up and see that it’s real.
Your koi fish tattoo is dope, what do you think of body art as self-expression?
I was always in to tattoos, that’s why I want the world to see more of me, besides what they saw on the show, because I’m a very artistic person; I love art, I love music and I was always in to the tattoo world, that’s why I’m in to comic books and video games. I feel like its self expression. But on your body. I love people that use their body in tattoo work for good reason, like you want to express yourself, every tattoo means something and I’m kind of upset of how now its turned into everyone’s getting stupid tattoos. The tattoo world and the art world are sort of tainting, I’m kind of waiting for this fad to go away. I love art on people, like if it’s great work done on your body, as long as it has meaning its okay, but there are just some people that put shit on their body and it has no meaning. I feel like it’s a canvas, canvas’ are not just made for nothing, if you have a strong opinion on something you use your body as a canvas for it.
