These ladies are manipulative and mean and just don't care. But that only makes them hotter.
<strong>7. Joy in <em>My Name Is Earl</em>—Jaime Pressly</strong>- There's just something sexy about a snarky southern drawl. For that we love every bitchy, white trash bit of this character. She can bitch us out anytime.
<strong>6. Emily in <em>The Devil Wears Prada</em>—Emily Blunt</strong>- Bitchiness with an English accent is like extra cheese on a plate of nachos—it makes life just a little bit better. Of course, it also helps if the plate of nachos is a stunning redhead with a snooty streak.
<strong>5. Gabrielle Solis in <em>Desperate Housewives</em>—Eva Longoria</strong>- On screen she's evil, adulterous, manipulative and devious. But one sight of Gabrielle in a bikini and suddenly it doesn't matter so much anymore.
<strong>4. Kendall in <em>Veronica Mars</em>—Charisma Carpenter</strong>- Few women can nail the kind of elitist bitchery that Kendall exudes…and few should try. With her mastery of the genre, others could get hurt. It also doesn't hurt that she's got legs that go for miles and miles.
<strong>3. Faith in <em>Buffy The Vampire Slayer</em>—Eliza Dukshu</strong>- There's nothing like a hot bitch that can kick your ass, and spout great one-liners while doing so. If her turn as a rogue slayer in the now defunct Buffy is any indication, Faith's anger issues are well worth the pain.
<strong>2. Brenda Walsh in <em>Beverly Hills 90210</em>—Shannen Doherty</strong>- It's hard to know which bitchiness is hotter: on screen or off screen. Combine the two, and you've got Shannen. Rowr!
<strong>1. Sammy Jo in <em>Dynasty</em> and Amanda Woodward in <em>Melrose Place</em>—Heather Locklear</strong>- Unfortunately for Heather, playing two of the bitchiest characters in prime time history puts her at the top of our list. And we're completely OK with that.
<strong>10. Ana-Lucia Cortez in <em>Lost</em>—Michelle Rodriguez</strong>- In most cases taking on tough-chick roles doesn't always mean bitch, but Ana-Lucia has a knack for adding the perfect amount of fatale to her femmes. We'd take a tongue lashing from her any day.
<strong>9. Dr. Christina Yang in <em>Grey's Anatomy</em>—Sandra Oh</strong>- Dr. Cristina Yang blends the perfect elements of bitchery wrapped up in a smart and sexy package. She can give as good as she gets, which totally translates to other areas of interest, right? Right?!
<strong>8. Julie Cooper-Nichol in <em>The OC</em>—Melinda Clarke</strong>- Julie was always that power-behind-the-throne type, using her looks to lure you into the bedroom and fall under her spell. But once she's got you by the balls, she's forever in control. Melting that icy demeanor might be a challenge, but we're willing to give it our best shot.
