Top Ten TV Bitches: Continued

5. Linda Gray as Sue Ellen Ewing. Dallas’s queen of the drunks. Not always a bitch, Sue Ellen’s claws only came out whenever tormented by her bastard husband JR. Which admittedly was quite a lot. Turning to the bottle as it was often her only friend, Sue Ellen could be a sharp tongued harpy. As evidenced here:

Sue Ellen eventually conquered her alcoholism, but drunk bitchy Sue Ellen was so much fun to watch. Have another drink Sue…

4. Rue McClanahan as Blanche Devereaux. “What?!” You cry! Blanche wasn’t a bitch! Oh but she was. The self proclaimed youngest and prettiest of The Golden Girls, Blanche was a delight to watch as she tore strips off her roommates, all with a charming smile on her face.

The prime example of Blanche’s enjoyable bitchiness came when Dorothy begins working with her and is asked to organise an event in Blanche’s honour. Suspicious and jealous of Dorothy’s seeming taking over Blanche’s duties, she greets Dorothy with a classic putdown in her exquisite southern accent.

Dorothy: Hi Blanche

Blanche: Eat dirt and die, trash.

Priceless.

3. Heather Locklear as Amanda Woodward. Top dog at D&D Advertising, Amanda ruled the roost on Melrose Place with an iron fist. A straight shooter who took no prisoners, except poor stupid Allison. Amanda and Allison had better chemistry as bitter rivals than Amanda and any man on this show. (Included here is a video featuring Amanda at her best…or is it worst?)

Watch from 1.40 as Amanda pulls the rug out from under temporary president of D&D Allison’s feet and takes command of what is rightfully hers.

Amanda wasn’t the only bitch Heather Locklear played. In the 80s, she played Sammi Jo on Dynasty. The poor girl from the wrong side of the tracks thrust into the glamourous world of the Carringtons was a character you flat out hated. Scheming and doing what she needed to get to the top, Sammi Jo was the perfect character for Heather to first exercise her bitch muscles.

Two awesome Heather videos charting her ascent to bitchdom:

Initially scheduled to place at number five on the list, these visual reminders pushed Amanda up the bitch rankings, which she’d be no doubt pleased with.

Still to come, the top two bitches. As well as the honourable mentions.
