It’s A Bitch-Eat-Bitch World – Part 2

You Call Them Bitches, I Call Them Queen B’s

Sherry Argov has enlightened many women out
there with her writing (Source: Internet)

Sherry Argov, the author of the Bitches series defined a bitch as a woman who won’t bang her head against the wall obsessing over someone else’s opinion be it a man or anyone else in her life. She understands that if someone does not approve of her, it’s just one person’s opinion; therefore, it’s of no real importance. She doesn’t try to live up to anyone else’s standards – only her own. Because of this, she relates to a man very differently.

So, who’s your ideal Queen Bitch

I have here my favourite Bitches on both TV and the silver screen. Pardon me, I rank these bitches purely based on my personal liking. I just love seeing them acting. Shall we?

1. Edie Britt in Desperate Housewives

Edie, you were my favourite housewife! (Source: Internet)

I know you each have your own favourite housewife, but I am honest-to-God crazy about Edie Britt‘s character. She has that poisonous glare, the sexy demeanour and such a seductive voice when she speaks. Although she has had her fair share of evil deeds such as having an affair with Karl Mayer when he was still married to Susan Mayer and stealing Mike Delfino from Susan and just to name a few.

Who Is This Bitch?
Nicollette Sheridan is an English actress who was formerly married to actor Harry Hamlin (of the original Clash of the Titans) and at one point engaged to singer Michael Bolton.

Why Do You Hate Her?
There! She gets involved with Karl, later tries to steal Mike, bla bla bla

Why You Must Love Her?
I don’t know what it’s been said, but British actors have this magnetic pull that you just can’t resist. Besides, Edie’s presence although most of the time unwanted by the main housewives, but she does bring them closer as friends. 

2. C.C. Babcock in The Nanny

I love her facial expressions every time Niles scores
a point in humiliating her (Source: Internet)

Haha, did I bring you back to the good old 90s? Never mind the nasal Jewish nanny, look at the blonde who has been trying to win her business partner’s affection for many years. Her upper class dressing and talking may make you nauseous, but you have to admit, she is quite a funny gal. I just love the way she and Niles the Butler bicker all the time, with Niles constantly confusing her with the children’s names. Once he makes C.C. believe that there was a fourth child and on a separate occasion, he calls her ‘brunnette’. Haha! 

Who Is This Bitch?
Don’t be surprised, Lauren Lane is currently more active as a professor at Texas State University, heading the Department of Theatre and Dance. 

Why Do You Hate Her?
As a child watching The Nanny, yes, you’ll hate her for her countless efforts to steal Maxwell Sheffield away from Fran Fine. Besides, she often makes snide remarks at Nanny Fine. 

Why You Must Love Her?
Remember in one episode when Niles admits that all the while, the bickering is actually an act of flirting? Haha! So, without CC, Niles will not be inspired to crack such funny jokes and punchlines. 

3. Jadis the White Witch in The Chronicles of Narnia

Don’t sell your siblings for Turkish delights! At least
 a bungalow with gym and swimming pool! (Source: Internet)

Surely you agree with this one. Remember how she lures Edmund Pevensie into her arms with just Turkish delights? Talk about a bad bargain rate for your soul! Learn from Malaysians, yo Edmund! We bargain like it’s the apocalypse tomorrow! Anyway, Jadis is also known to be so cruel that she brings icy winter for more than a thousand years across Narnia. 

Who Is This Bitch?
Tilda Swinton needs no introduction. She has played so many characters that will leave a mark in your heart. She is famous for her sharp facial features and her voice, I just can’t describe it, but it is so unique. You heard the same voice but with different faces in all he movies.

Why Do You Hate Her?
Remember when she kills Aslan? And when she enchants Peter into giving her a drop of blood to escape her icy prison? Enough said!

Why You Must Love Her?
Can’t you see the costume? Gorgeous for a psychopath-evil-queen! And not only that, when she kills Aslan, she breaks her promise not to kill an innocent life. So she actually brings him back to Narnia in the end. 

4. Regina George in Mean Girls

So, you think you’re really pretty? Say, NO! (Source: Internet)

Now this is one bitch you don’t want to mess with, the Queen Bee of the Plastics! She breaks up with Aaron and doesn’t allow Cady to date him. And she has ‘an army of skanks’ following her wherever she goes. She doesn’t allow Gretchen to invent the new catchphrase ‘fetch’. Oh, wait! Shouldn’t this be in another section?

Who Is This Bitch?
Rachel McAdams is one of the most versatile actresses around! Although the movie Mean Girls was supposed to boost Lindsay Lohan‘s career (who told you to go crazy at such a young age, you tramp?), I believe, many would agree, it catapulted Rachel McAdams into stardom. In fact her movies make better box-office compared to LiLo, sorry, former Disney brat!

Why Do You Hate Her?
The list is endless! She cheats on her boyfriend at the projector room with Shane Oman. She addresses her mother as ‘f-ing’ mum. She constantly bullies people. Remember the Burn Book? Aaaah! She causes the whole school to go against one another.

Why You Must Love Her?
She is absolutely a loveable villain! She’s cute, she’s mean, she’s the girl every girl wants to be. Remember the holed out shirt? Yes, that’s another reason to love her!

5. Betty Rizzo in Grease

Stockard Channing was 33 when she played high school senior,
 Betty Rizzo (Source: Internet)

Your life is not complete until you’ve watched this musical. The leader of the Pink Ladies, Rizzo is known as a highly sexual person who sets her eyes on Danny Zuko but dates Kenicki instead. Like Regina there, she is also accompanied by ‘an army of skanks’ only the 1958’s version with curly short hairdo and chic pedal pushers!

Who Is This Bitch?
Stockard Channing was actually born Susan Antonia Williams Stockard. She actually first made a debut in Sesame Street, how’s that for a musical bitch? 

Why Do You Hate Her?
Yes, people will mostly be on Sandy’s side and hate Rizzo for trying to corrupt the lovely Australian girl. Not only that, it seems that Rizzo has an episode when she thinks she is pregnant. Back in the 50s, it was quite a scandal. Now? Well, thanks to the younger sisters of Britney Spears and Kim Kardashian, it seems like teenage pregnancy is a cool thing in America! Wadda-eff?

Why You Must Love Her?
You can’t deny her ‘Look at me, I’m Sandra Dee‘ performance was awesome. And she has a great sense of fashion too. Something that I don’t mind wearing some time soon!

6. Callisto in Xena Warrior Princess

Once mortal, then she becomes a god by eating Ambrosia (Source: Internet)

What? You don’t remember her? Then, I must be so old! Callisto is a recurring character in Xena Warrior Princess whose family died in the hands of Xena’s army. She seeks revenge and receives assistance from Hera, Zeus’s bitter wife. Callisto has also learned all of Xena’s tricks so that she can raid other villages and frame Xena for it.

Who Is This Bitch?
Hudson Leick’s first name is actually Heide, how sweet is that? She’s an actress, model, yoga instructor and intuitive counsellor. Pretty impressive, huh?

Why Do You Hate Her?
Understandable, when there’s Xena, you’ll automatically hate everyone else, including Gabrielle. Oops!

Why You Must Love Her?
Once Xena and Callisto switched bodies and so, I had no choice but to love Callisto.

7. Samantha Jones in Sex in The City

Samantha Jones, you are my idol! (Source: Internet)

This iconic character is the only reason to watch SATC. You’ll be drawn to know what’s up her sleeves next. All those guys she dates, all those funny incidents she faces and so many more. On a plus side, she has the best outfits and styles! Yes, Bradshaw has much nicer clothes and shoes, but nobody flaunts it like Samantha Jones.

Who Is This Bitch?
Kim Cattrall is a British-Canadian actress who is pushing 60 and still looks like she’s in her early 40s. Yes, Samantha relies on Botox, I have no idea if Kim does too.

Why Do You Hate Her?
Perhaps because she sleeps with different men every night until she starts dating Smith Jerrod. Oh, come on, you’re just jealous because she is so fabulous!

Why You Must Love Her?
Despite all her flaws (according to some), she is a loyal friend. 

8. Blair Waldorf in The Gossip Girl

Don’t be fooled by that school uniform, gentlemen. (Source: Internet)

Wow, are bitches born at such a young age? Tskkk… tskkk.. Perhaps, but at least Blair Waldorf does it with style, besides, I personally think she is the fairer one between the two (Serena). And honestly, I just love her and Chuck Bass being together. So, so, so perfect for each other.

Who Is This Bitch?
Leighton Meester is a baby-faced brunnette (she’s a natural blonde, by the way) with the prettiest smile. I just can’t believe she married Adam Brody, sob sob. What’s wrong with Ed Westwick???

Why Do You Hate Her?
At such a young age, she can be quite a conniving bitch who plots against people who stand in her way. At such a young age?

Why You Must Love Her?
Easy, she’s the one who breaks Chuck’s fortress of egoism. And there’s her dress… there’s her pair of shoes… there’s her head band… oooh, too many things to love her for!

9. Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada

Please bore someone else with your questions (Source: Internet)

This list will be incomplete without Miranda Priestly, the Editor-In-Chief of Runway magazine. She is feared by many, her subordinates, designers, business partners, etc. Her character was inspired by Anna Wintour of Vogue magazine. 

Who Is This Bitch?
Meryl Streep is a multiple award-winning actress with a career spanning over four decades. Give her any role and she will bring justice to that character.

Why Do You Hate Her?
She calls Andy ‘fat’. Wow, if Andy, a size 6 is fat, then I must be morbidly obese! She makes the most impossible demands, including the manuscript of the new Harry Potter book. From the beginning of the movie, till the end, well, you get what I mean.

Why You Must Love Her?
I think she secretly adores Andy for her perseverance during the latter’s attachment to Runway. She gives quite an impactful recommendations too for Andy’s job interview.

10. Amy Dunne in Gone Girl

Could you say no to that face? (Source: Internet)

Welcome, new comer, to the Bitch-Eat-Bitch World! Now this woman is psychotic just as she is gorgeous. She plans her own murder to get back at her husband, causing a nationwide panic. Her methods are almost flawless, she only relents when she sees her husband begs for forgiveness from the public.

Who Is This Bitch?
Rosamund Pike is among those lucky beautiful girls who get to be Bond Girl. On top of that, she also has her fair share in some of my favourite movies including Surrogates and Wrath of the Titans.

Why Do You Hate Her?
Probably the fact that she is so shameless to fake her own murder with meticulously planned actions to hurt her husband. She kills her ex-boyfriend who helps her when she gets mugged by her neighbours.

Why You Must Love Her?
Well, she did teach her philandering husband a very good lesson, perhaps to all other philandering husbands out there too. Remember, hell hath no fury than a woman scorned!

And the Winner is….GLENN CLOSE for her portrayal of Alex Forrest in Fatal Attraction, Marquis Isabelle de Merteuille in Dangerous Liaisons, Queen Gertrude in Hamlet and Cruella De Vil in 101/102 Dalmations

All these characters are firmly embedded in our minds and hearts as among the Ultimate Bitches, proving Glenn Close’s remarkable acting.

Alex Forest in Fatal Attraction is such an iconic character among the psychopaths/stalkers out there. When a weekend fling becomes murderous, she makes sure that nothing stands between her and Dan, not even Dan’s wife and daughter.

Among Glenn Close’s most famous role, it earned her an
Academy Award nomination for Best Actress (Source: Internet)

Marquis Isabelle de Merteuille in Dangerous Liaisons is another of her well-known portrayals. Who could be any crazier than the Marquis? First she offers herself to Valmont if Valmont seduces Cecile. Then, she finds out that Danceny and Cecile are in love and encourage them further. At the same time, she seduces Danceny. What? When will this twisted web of deceit and betrayal end? 

She ain’t a dumb blonde, I tell you… (Source: Internet)

Queen Gertrude in Hamlet is not an actual villain. But I still put her on the bitch list because first she marries Hamlet’s father, then later his uncle when her husband mysteriously died. There were also hints of incest between Hamlet and his mother. Eeeekkk! Bitch! That’s your own flesh and blood!

Queen Gertrude, the Danish royalty in Shakespeare (Source: Internet)

And of course, finally, the greedy and murderous Cruella De Vil from the 101/102 Dalmations movies. Originally working on stripes for her fashion house, she suddenly decides spots are more favourable after she sees Anita’s photo of Perdy. When buying does not succeed, she settles for kidnapping. In the sequel, Cruella becomes Ella as she is healed through therapy but only for a while. This time, she wants a hood to go with her Dalmation jacket.

You can hate her, but you have to admit, her costumes
are simply gorgeous (Source: Internet)

Here are my favourite movie/TV bitches!

Who’s your ideal Queen Bitch? Feel free to share your thoughts and perhaps, I’ll write about her too.

Look who wears a tiara now? (Source: Internet)

See you in the next confession!

All my love, XOXO,
Miss Paris
