Who is worse: A dieter with a bad attitude, a chef who can't cook or a hostess who gives us nightmares?
You'd think these people would run out of awful steam towards the end of summer, but they're still as obnoxious as they always are.
It's hard to believe that the reality TV genre can keep producing new personalities that are even more outrageous, annoying and/or disgusting than the last ones. But yet this spring alone has brought us another crop of folks we love to hate. Some of them are actually familiar faces we may have enjoyed watching in the past, while others are gifting us with their awfulness for the first time.

The world is still reeling from the news that that the queen of daytime television will be abandoning her current talk show at the end of next season. Well, maybe it's just the world of stay-at-home moms and the unemployed that's reeling, but regardless, the question on everyone's minds is: what will Ms. Winfrey do next? While many consider it a given that she'll simply star on a new series on OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network, natch), we think that she should set her sights a little higher. Primetime high. Here's our unsolicited job advice for her:
Like any good liberal arts college graduate, I've long been privy to the many advantages of having a gay boyfriend. I don't mean a guy that you're actually dating who turns out to prefer the pole to the hole. I'm talking about a partner in crime, that rare breed of man who's much happier to peruse the galleries of an exhibit featuring the work of the Wiener Werkestatte and then grab a leisurely brunch than to down a case of Natty Ice and spend the day watching football. A man who will answer you honestly when you ask if your ass looks fat in these jeans, who knows the difference between Marc Jacobs and Zac Posen, who always smells good, has eyebrows that are better manicured than yours and will eagerly share and listen to details of various romantic escapades with nary an eye roll or judgment as to your promiscuity. The gay boyfriend is a necessary part of any sophisticated woman's entourage, an accessory less expensive than a child or a toy poodle and infinitely more stylish, though possibly more high maintenance. A best gay is a status symbol for a certain caliber of upwardly mobile female, and as such, it would make sense that this storied relationship between a woman and her gay is the topic of an upcoming Bravo reality show, tentatively titled Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys
Unlike with the Oscars and other major awards, the Creative Arts Emmys are totally not
the nerdy, D-List version of the Primetime (ie "real") Emmys. In fact, this year especially served to illustrate how not televising certain awards live guarantees it'll be much, much cooler than the boring old Standards and Practices-adherent ones. All of media's provocateurs (Kathy Griffin, Sarah Silverman, Trey Parker and Matt Stone) came out in full force, and most of them went home with a statue or two for their troubles. And of course, Mad Men
pretty much swept every goddamned thing because, duh, it's the best effing show on TV. After the jump, the highlights of who won what. (For a full list of the winners, click here
Realizing that not everyone is a Big Brother
junkie like moi
, there was a massive verbal battle this week that went from a discussion to getting nearly everyone in the house in a senseless screaming match. It is way beyond convoluted to explain (though M.Giant did a good job attempting to
) but it got us thinking about how reality shows are really at their best when people just let their freak flags fly and start swearing or punching. Honestly, we could fill this whole list with stupid stuff that had happened on Big Brother
or A Shot at Love
but I'm trying hard to give you a little bit of variety here. I'm told that's the spice of life. With that, here are some of the most disgusting or ridiculous squabbles ever to grace the small screen. Though I'm sure this list will be outdated by tomorrow.

Have you guys heard? The D-List is the new A-List. Just ask EMMY WINNER Kathy Griffin
. Or better yet, ask the fools producing a new Fox reality show called Gimme My Reality Show!
in which, um, reality-show D-listers (which in the real world makes them Q-Listers) compete to, um, star in a reality show
. It's so meta my head just exploded. A few of the peeps on board thus far are Santino Rice
, he of Project Runway
Season Two fame and Traci Bingham of Baywatch
, which is apparently a reality show (?) now. A panel of judges made up of reality show producers and reality show A-Listers (H-listers in actual fact) will judge contestants on their ability to like, throw a hissy fit and alienate their castmates, presumably. Clearly Santino would make for a killer reality show star. I mean CLEARLY. The man has more fierce bitchy queen shenanigoats stored in his pinky than Traci has in BOTH of her silicon boobs. And I can't imagine anyone else who could even come close to his diva-tude. OR CAN I?

At the beginning of every week (usually Monday, which is also today) I like to go to Oprah.com
to see which episodes I should Tivo in the coming week for my drunken idiot friends and I to watch and make fun of at a later date. Usually this makes for a pretty fun experience, but this week not so much. Here's what Oprah has lined up for us drunken idiots:
It's not often that the entire TWoP editorial staff gets invited to go out of the office together (probably for good reason) but someone at Bravo was crazy enough to invite us all to the taping of the upcoming A-List Awards. So we got all gussied up, and I do mean gussied, and headed down to the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City for a swanky night of gawking at Project Runway and Top Chef stars, hovering around the open bar and waiting for a fight to break out between the Real Housewives of New York and Orange County.
