Evil Pageant Queens! Dance School Sadists! The 10 Worst Reality Villains of 2013

View Photo Gallery

We don’t watch reality shows for the sweet characters. The do-gooders, the faithful wives, the lifelong friends who don’t leap across tables to rip each other’s throats out. No, it’s all about the villains!  Now, it’s a reality show standard to have a wild card (or two) on each show. Hair-pulling, backstabbing, boyfriend-stealing, tacky tantrums, blatant bullying…this is what the genre is made of!

And the best villains know that the shows depend on them. If they really channel their inner lunatic, these characters can land endorsement deals, book contracts, or, like Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes (a reformed villain), they can even score a role on a legit scripted show — hello, Glee.

In 2013, the reality genre experienced a villain boom. Dance Mom’s Abby Lee Miller was like a witch out of a Grimm’s fairy tale, cackling as she tortured the hell out of her dance school students. Love & Hip Hop’s Peter Gunz seemed cool enough, but then we discovered his schizophrenic love life — five babymamas, a secret wife and a girlfriend! Here, we salute the craziest reality cast members of the year.

Lupita Nyong’o is getting all of the hype this awards season for her star-making role in 12 Years A Slave.  But could the insanely talented actress (and recent Yale School of Drama grad) be the next Jennifer Lawrence?

We keep hearing that vampires, werewolves, witches and angels are losing steam in pop culture, that people want real drama these days. Um, not as long as Internet fandoms around! You can’t take away our eternal love and lust for the shirt-ripping shapeshifters of Teen Wolf, the muscled gods of Thor, the seductive witches of American Horror Story: Coven or the blood-sucking immortals of The Vampire Diaries. One look at the fervor for 2014′s Vampire Academy and you know there’s a future in fangs.

Happy Birthday, Vanessa Hudgens! Watch Her Grow Up, And Strip Down, Before Your Eyes

View Photo Gallery

Vanessa Hudgens turns 25 years old today, and instead of having a quarter life crisis — or a public meltdown like other young Hollywood starlets these days — the High School Musical alumna is throwing herself into her work, somewhat responsibly. Not only has she continued departing from her Disney days by assuming adult roles in films like Spring Breakers and Gimme Shelter (January 2014), but she’s also becoming the face  — ahem, and body — of charitable organizations the world over.

Hollywood Hobbits: Big Celebs Who Are Short Stars!

View Photo Gallery

Hollywood might be filled with some of the biggest stars on Earth, but some of those celebrities aren’t so tall in real life. From The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug‘s star, Martin Freeman, to everyone’s favorite reality star, Kim Kardashian (who might not be a hobbit in the negative way South Park pointed out last night–but she is surprisingly short!), it seems like some of the most extraordinary stars are shorter than the average person.

Some celebrity couples are bigger than the sum of their parts. Even after they’re kaput. For these dynamic duos, it doesn’t matter how many years have passed since the breakup, how many marriages they’ve endured, or how much their star has risen or fallen — we’ll always root for them stop being silly and get back together, already. Honestly, is there anyone more right for Ryan Gosling than Rachel McAdams?

Man Manes: The 10 Studliest Dude Hairdos in Hollywood

View Photo Gallery

There’s something about male celebrities with good hair. They get a pass that real dudes don’t. In real life, when you see a man with better hair than you, it’s totally off-putting. First of all, it’s unfair. Secondly, if you can detect that there was actual effort involved in the creation of the ‘do, the dude suddenly seems metro and twee. But when it comes to guy stars? Fabulous hair is expected. Part of the gig. Bring on the long, bouncy, princess curls a la Jared Leto!
