The Most Heinous Person on Reality TV This Week

This week saw the beginning of a new season of LA Ink, and while we really, really, really wanted to put Kat Von D on this list for everything that's going on outside of the show, not to mention the fact she got a picture of Jesse James (as a child!) tattooed on her, she was actually really sweet in this episode. It's still a bad idea to get someone's face permanently put on your skin (particularly given what has unfolded since) but she was cute with that little hairless cat and the woman with the dead daughter and that sad girl she inexplicably took in. She may make awful life decisions, but she does them from a good place, so she gets a pass this week. The others on this list... not so much.

Scott (Famous Food)
He's not even famous! He's the designer who is doing the work on the restaurant and is dealing with some of the most insufferable people on the planet and yet he still is the one coming off looking like a douchebag. He increased costs when they were on a budget, went ahead with plans without any approval and basically bought some of the ugliest chairs we've ever seen.

Alex (The Real Housewives of New York Reunion)
While Ramona talked more about her period and generally grossed us out, Alex wins the RHONY prize this week for sticking her nose in where it doesn't belong. Also, she was so hung up on the ridiculous hair color teams that she forgave Sonja for bad behavior that was seemingly way worse than Kelly's and didn't even realize how obnoxious that looked. She also doesn't comprehend that her husband may not be perfect. Were the leather pants not enough of a giveaway?

Mandi (The Challenge: Rivals)
Mandi went ahead and hooked up with CT even though everyone in the house told her not to, and then got annoyed when he decided he was interested in having a conversation with Laurel (note: he didn't hook up with Laurel because he thought she was too good for him). So Mandi ran around screaming about sloppy seconds and STDs and then, to prove that she wasn't slutty, hopped into Wes' bed for a snuggle session. Way to be classy, Mandi.

The Moms (Hell's Kitchen)
What kind of parent would bring their child into Hell's Kitchen? You have to know that your child may or may not actually be fed (which ended up being the case) and that there is going to be extreme profanity being spouted left and right. Yet, mothers brought their kids in for a "Mommy and Me" lunch and a Family Night dinner just to get on TV. Obviously, Gordon Ramsay isn't going to tone down his language just because of little ears, so the kids stared at him dumbstruck and not one mother yelled "earmuffs" to their kid.

Amber (Teen Mom)
Honestly, she's been bad for a while, but basically telling Gary that almost getting his child taken away because of something she did wasn't his problem and only pertained to her was one of the most selfish things we've seen on TV. Also, she seemed put out that the police and Child Protective Services wanted to meet with her. She needs to grow up and accept responsibility for her actions, though judging by the fact that she thinks everything is hunky dory as she swears like a sailor in front of her child, that seems unlikely.

Winner: Alex
We're crowning her this week because out of all the high-pitched screaming that sent even Andy Cohen over the edge, her voice was the loudest. Also, because she laughed/panted at her "witty" comeback and is making a profit off of T-shirts based on something she said. Yeah, clearly she isn't in this for fame or anything.
