From Globe Names columnist Mark Shanahan:

It's fair to say Gabe Pruitt didn't distinguish himself as a member of the Celtics, and he isn't winning many fans with his boorish behavior on "Bad Girls Club." Pruitt, whom the Celts wisely cut before the season, appeared on this week's episode and was even more obnoxious, if that's possible, than the stars of the show. "Bad Girls Club," which airs on Oxygen, is about seven shrill sirens who live - and squabble - in a sprawling LA mansion. This week, the nattering Natalie took the rest of the gals to a party hosted by Pruitt at an LA club. (Natalie describes her pal as "Gabe from the Celtics" even though he doesn't play for them anymore.) As soon as the ladies arrive at the club, Pruitt begins hitting on Natalie, murmuring such sweet nothings as "I want you (expletive) naked" and "I want to (expletive) you." Ah, isn't he sweet? Believe it or not, Natalie is charmed by the baller and takes him home. When they get there, Pruitt promptly wakes up Natalie's roommate and kicks her out because he wants to get busy. Said one commenter on the Oygen web site: "I can't believe (Natalie) let that lame-ass dude talk to her like that. She has no self respect at all." Pruitt, you'll recall, spent much of his time here toiling with the C's Developmental League squad. Last February, he was busted for DUI and suspended by the team for two days. Now, the USC product is playing with the Los Angeles D-Fenders, the Lakers' affiliate in the D League. Pruitt won't be back on "Bad Girls Club," we're told, but cast member Kate from Gloucester and she's figures prominently in next week's episode.
