The most iconic TV bitches of all time

2017-08-31
When it comes to legendary TV bitches, there  have been a few over the years that in some dark, twisted way we've almost found ourselves rooting for. These iconic women of the silver screen have schemed, plotted, murdered and ruined lives in order to get what they want. They didn't let anything get in their way, and while some of them still had a semblance of a heart by the end, it doesn't erase what they did. Despite some of their heinous acts, they've lived on as some of the most memorable TV characters of all time, while their good girl counterparts have faded into television obscurity. Our only rule for being included on this list? If they've not been truly morally bankrupt at least three times, then we have no interest in them. Take a look below:
