Today is not just Friday, it's a holiday weekend Friday, so let's not mess around. Below are my five nominees for the week's Most Heinous crown, followed by the big winner. I know I promised you some Bachelorette horribleness this week, but there were just too many awful people everywhere else, so Ashley and the fellas are going to have to wait a week. Can't wait!
Kayla's Mom, 16 & Pregnant
Where to begin? With the way she asked her recovering anorexic daughter to go on a diet with her? With the way she charged her daughter's boyfriend, who was actually helpful and financially supportive of the new baby, an exorbitant (for him) rent without providing heat in the middle of a Minnesota winter? With the way she so clearly cared more about hanging out with her own boyfriend than being present for her terrified, pregnant teen daughter? This nightmare of a woman made for one of the most depressing episodes of this show ever -- not an easy thing to do.
Ramona and Sonja, The Real Housewives of New York
They were a two-headed monster this week, so I'm lumping them together. While I do agree that LuAnn was being a little obnoxiously bossy on the trip, these two went into full-on drunken trash mode the second they got off the plane, insulting everything about Morocco from its deserts (they don't like deserts, because someone could "jump out" of them? What?) to its architecture, right in front of the locals waiting on them. And that whole thing with asking the designer LuAnn had hired to fetch them firewood was beyond gross. And shut up about Pinot Grigio for one second of your stupid life, Ramona. I normally love Ramona's ridiculousness, but she was such a tacky snob last night, I wanted to smack her.
Rulon, The Biggest Loser
He himself said that he didn't show up to the finale because he "wasn't eligible for the money" after quitting the show, but after being so interminably pompous for the short time he was on the show, he could have at least had the decency to let us see how much weight he'd put back on since leaving. Besides, almost everyone else who returned to the show did, and nobody even mentioned it!
Mark Ballas, Dancing With the Stars
Yeah, yeah, Chelsea Kane had no fan base and didn't stand much of a chance against Kirstie Alley and Hines Ward. But Mark Ballas ruined whatever chance she did have by choreographing one of the dumbest freestyles I've ever seen, ridiculously missing the point, making it all about him and incorporating cheesy, unnecessary LED lights and crap. He makes me miss Derek Hough, and that is inexcusable.
Tamra, The Real Housewives of Orange County
It was great television, but announcing your friend's anal bleeding to a restaurant full of her peers was pretty heinous. Hilariously heinous, but you know. Still.
Kayla's mom, for millions of obvious reasons. Not even close this week.
