Aaaahhh…villains. Like in all things storytelling, no good tale works without a villain and a hero. And of course it's the villain who causes all the drama and gives the show its luster. Reality TV is the perfect place for a crazy, scheming, venomous nut job to crop up back stab, lie, and start trouble.
While the heroes get all the fans, the villains make the show. So here's to you, Reality TV villains. And without further ado, here is Reality Tea's list of Top 11 Reality TV Villains! There's just so many good ones.

Honorable Mention: Camille Grammer from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills S1. Camille was the most hated woman in Housewives history (well, practically) for her vicious comments and accusations of pernicious behavior. Whether she was insecure or insignificant or just a plain ole bitch, nobody could get along with the soon-to-be-former Mrs. Grammer. Until season 2 when a publicist was hired and an image rehab was had.
Villain #10: Scott Disick. Scott has been the Kardashian nemesis for years. No matter what Kris Jenner does she just can't make Kourtney Kardashian dump him and marry a real celeb. Oh well, Scott has become a celebrity villain in his own right on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Something tells me if Kris J liked him a little more, Kourt would have dumped him seasons ago.
Villain #9: Vienna Girardi. Vienna has been terrorizing Bachelor franchise lovers for seasons. Her scheming famewhoring ways made her one of the most hated women in the show's history and despite 'winning' Jake Pavelka's engagement she wanted fame and money! She sold him out to the tabloids, went on Bachelor Pad, and most recently accused Chris Harrison of dating Emily Maynard. Really, Vienna?
Villain #8: Angelina Pivarnick. She was the guidette everyone loved to hate. Trashbags just couldn't get along with anyone on Jersey Shore. And her trashbags came and went as she continued whining, crying, and fighting with Snooki and JWoww.
Villain #7: Puck. Puck was one of the first reality TV villains to emerge. Hocking loogies and boogers from his BMX bike on the Real World: San Francisco, Puck made his roomates' lives a living hell until they kicked him out. While Puck was thrown back into the "real world" his legacy still lives on.
Villain #6: Kate Gosselin. The mom of many started out as normal-ish, but then fame and fortune went to her head. Kate belittled Jon Gosselin (and her eight) on Jon & Kate Plus 8 for seasons until he filed for divorce amongst scandals and cheating allegations.
Kate continued pimping out her kids until TLC called it quits. Kate has become one of the most hated women in TV for her lavish spending, outrageous 'hottie' make-over, and desperate pleading to return to the spotlight. See Kate Date? I'll pass…
Villain #5: Spencer Pratt. He ruined now wife Heidi Montag's friendship with Lauren Conrad on The Hills and became one of the most despised characters on TV. He pimped out his marriage and following his wife's drastic plastic surgery claimed he had spent all their money on a crystal addiction. He's still grasping at the spotlight, but nobody cares.
Villain: #4: Tami Roman. Tami has always been a keep it real kind of a girl if you consider attacking, fighting, screaming, drink throwing, hair pulling, screaming, and crap talking keeping it real. On this season's Basketball Wives fans had enough and Tami faced serious backlash for her antics.
Villain # 3: Jill Zarin. The former Real Housewives of New York star was controversial from the get-go and fame went to her head in a big way. She feuded with Ramona Singer and most notably isolated and attacked Bethenny Frankel over jealousy, bitterness, and famewhoring. Jill continued her tabloid-talking, two-faced, back-stabbing ways until she was fired. She's still at it though!
Villain #2: Taylor Armstrong. Taylor hopped onto the scene lip implants blazing. After dropping $100k on a birthday party for her 5-year-old and starting fights galore between her castmates, things took a turn for the worst when her soon-to-be-ex-husband, Russell Armstrong committed suicide. Her drama continued on S2 when her drinking, chaos, and general crazy reached a fever pitch. Sadly her off-screen antics were just as bad… but you know the rest!
Villain #1: Danielle Staub. Danielle takes the case as the craziest, wackiest, most memorable villain in history. "Prostitution Whore!" table flips, Hells Angel body guards with guns, Danny, Wigs in a handbag, stripper poles, salacious books, lying, conniving, extortion, sex tapes, Kim G! The list is endless. And you know what, I think we all miss her just a little bit on Real Housewives of New Jersey.
