11:27am | Bravo channel's Tabatha Coffey, who filmed the premiere of her hit television show "Tabatha's Salon Takeover" at Ten Salon in Long Beach, returns to the City this season to take over Club Ripples for the second episode of her new series, "Tabatha Takes Over".
According to a press release:
Club Ripples, the first gay dance club in Long Beach, CA, is owned by couple Larry Hebert and John Garcia. Ripples used to be the gay hot spot, but now it’s empty seven nights a week and they blame the competition and their staff. Tabatha quickly discovers the real problems are John’s penny pinching business practices and Larry’s crazy club rules. To make matters worse, the bar has a bad reputation in the community and the employees’ suggestions are falling on deaf ears.Similar in format to her original "Salon Takeover" series, “Tabatha Takes Over” follows Coffey as she travels across the country taking over failing establishments and "whipping them into shape" with her professional advice on everything from management style to marketing materials to customer service.
Long Beach's Club Ripples is featured on the second episode of the show, which will air January 17th at 10:00pm on Bravo.
