‘Tis the season for everyone to do their best to convince Santa that they’ve been on their best behavior all year.
But Santa can’t be fooled. He has a list, he’s checked it twice, and he knows exactly which TV characters were naughty or nice.
2020 was a tough year for all of us.
But for every character that deserves a nice Christmas gift is a character who has been so bad that all they should get is a lump of coal under the tree.
Murder, corruption, kidnapping, jealousy, and even hero complexes have landed all of these characters on Santa’s naughty list!
You Season 2 premiered towards the backend of 2019, but Joe and Love were so bad that they truly deserve to be on every naughty list until the end of time.
As Joe’s body count continued to rise, Love was revealed to be equally as crazy. And the fact that these two are about to become parents doesn’t excuse their stalker-ish and murder-ish behavior.
Even with Love by his side and a baby on the way, Joe has already found his next obsession for You Season 3: the neighbor next door.
You can blame most of the crime in Gotham City on the one and only Alice.
She’s a cold-blooded killer who rarely shows any remorse on Batwoman Season 1.
Not even her family is spared from her wrath and paranoia. She has killed her step-mom and the Commander’s wife, Catherine, double-crossed her “brother” Mouse by poisoning him, and hatched an elaborate plan to kill her very own sister Batwoman/Kate Kane.
Charmaine was insufferable on Virgin River Season 2. She let her insecurities get the best of her, which resulted in behaviors fueled by jealousy.
She was rude to Mel, who went out of her way to help her during her high-risk pregnancy and constantly made Jack feel guilty for wanting to live his life on his own terms, making it hard to sympathize with her.
And she couldn’t take no for an answer. There are theories that she’s responsible for shooting Jack, and if that’s true, she deserves more than coal!
Teddy on Grey’s Anatomy Season 17 deserves some kudos for being on the frontline treating COVID patients, so maybe Santa will go easy on her.
However, she certainly earned herself a place on the naughty list for the naughty, sexy times she had with her ex on her wedding day.
And sadly for her, thanks to a butt dial, she broadcasted it so that Owen, his OR, and the entire North Pole could hear it.
Chastain has never seen villains quite like Barrett Cain and Logan Kim on The Resident Season 3, and we’re talking about a staff that has dealt with Lane Hunter!
Cain has been driven by his ego for much of the season and always prioritized himself, which is why he kept quiet about the superbug and caused innocent patients to fall ill.
Logan Kim co-conspired with Cain to get Conrad booted, had no respect for any of the employees and only saw dollar bills.
And when it came down to it, he turned his back on Cain to save himself and his reputation.
The show may be titled “good girls,” but the only thing Beth, Annie, and Ruby are good at is being bad to the bone.
They’ve had so many chances to bow out of a life of crime, but instead, they justify their actions by convincing themselves they are doing it all to support their family.
Beth spent so much of her energy hiring a hitman to kill Rio on Good Girls Season 3, but she failed to realize that they’ve become just as bad as Rio, who also takes a spot on the naughty list for killing Lucy (and possibly Boomer).
The only difference between Rio and the girls is that he owns his actions.
You’ll never see Hiram Lodge’s name on a “good list.” Ever.
He continues to manipulate and sabotage his daughter at every chance he gets. At this point, it’s petty.
He also broke out of jail by making his wife seem guilty of murder and weaseled his way into becoming Mayor of Riverdale so he could assert his power over the residents.
However, there are some other Riverdale Season 4 residents whose actions have also landed them on the naughty list!
Archie snagged a spot on the list for letting his hero complex get the best of him.
He so desperately wants to be in amongst the action, even if it puts everyone he loves in danger.
And who can forget this season’s true villains… the Stonewall Prep Literary Club of Donna Sweett, Joan Berkeley, Bret Weston Wallis, & Jonathan.
These four made it their mission to make Jughead’s life a living hell and dragged Betty Cooper down with them.
WATCH: ‘Framing Britney Spears’ Documentary Digs Into #FreeBritney Movement and Conservatorship
Are you part of the #BritneyArmy? Have you been following her career religiously since 1998?
If so, you’re probably all too familiar with the #FreeBritney movement, which aims to free the pop star from her controversial conservatorship put in place in 2008 after she experienced several mental breakdowns.
The New York Times Presents will dig deeper into the movement with their latest episode, “Framing Britney Spears” set to debut on February 5.
It will air simultaneously on FX and FX on Hulu.
Per the official synopsis, the standalone documentary will feature “people close to Britney Spears and lawyers tied to her conservatorship now reassess her career as she battles her father in court over who should control her life.”
A teaser trailer for the documentary was released today with one of the featured guests stating that “the way we treated her was disgusting”.
Another guest questions why her dad is making all of her decisions as a third adds that “anytime there’s that amount of money to be made, you have to question the motives of everyone.”
Watch the trailer below:
Dale Moss Accused of Cheating on ‘The Bachelorette’s Clare Crawley During Engagement
With a few notable exceptions (we’re looking at you, Jake Pavelka; ditto, Arie Luyendyk, Jr.), Bachelor Nation couples tend to offer fairly staid reasons for why their relationship wilted.As they’re busily shipping off that Neil Lane diamond and hashing out who gets custody of Chris Harrison in the breakup, the once madly in love duos craft statements about their mutual decision to separate and the deep admiration they still hold for each other. And for a minute there, it appeared Clare Crawley and Dale Moss would be following that script.
Confirming their separation on Instagram Jan. 19, the former NFL athlete shared that it was “the healthiest decision for both of us,” noting they continued to want “the best things for one another.” He doubled down when approached by a reporter while out in New York City hours later, insisting that “Clare and I have a lot of love for each other.”
The split was just one of those things, he continued, blaming his and the Sacramento-based hairstylist’s packed schedules. “Honestly, we’ve just got a lot going on in our lives right now,” he explained, adding that they had every intention of remaining in each other’s orbits as friends: “Clare and I will be cool.”
Wellllllll, unless that’s some sort of hip new slang, he shouldn’t bet on it.
Because not 24 hours after the 32-year-old and the franchise’s 16th lead announced the end of their five-month engagement, leaving the door just slightly ajar for a reconciliation, it became clear that their breakup was more Hannah Brown–Jed Wyatt, less Ben Higgins–Lauren Bushnell. Put plainly, multiple sources familiar with the situation tell E! News they believe Moss has been cheating on Crawley throughout their engagement.
He and the woman in question (E! News has chosen not to name her at this time) have been in communication since at least late 2019, but Moss insisted to Crawley, 39, that theirs was merely a business relationship. Still, “Clare has always been skeptical,” says one source with knowledge of the circumstance. “She never trusted the friendship and thought it was shady.” And as their nascent romance began to splinter, her worst suspicions were confirmed.
The first source tells E! News the woman “has been talking to her friends about sneaking around with Dale.” As for Crawley, continues the source, “she has seen proof” that whenever Moss was in New York City without her, he was with his other flame.
One such occasion came in November—not long after Moss’ proposal aired on TV and he brought his bride-to-be home to South Dakota. Spotted enjoying a late-night candlelit dinner at Cipriani Downtown, “It definitely looked like a date,” shared an eyewitness, noting the pair appeared to leave hand-in-hand. “Dale looked really smiley and happy with her. They were laughing and flirting.”
Suffice to say Crawley isn’t the type to subscribe to the it’s-not-cheating-if-you’re-
Signing on to dole out roses after a memorable stint as Juan Pablo Galavis‘ runner-up, two rounds of Bachelor in Paradiseand a brief Bachelor Winter Games engagement, she was unequivocal about her intentions to find her forever partner. “I am looking for a man that is just like my dad,” she explained during her Good Morning America reveal. “Strong, loving, gentle, compassionate and just a real, genuine, kind man.”
Of utmost importance, she stressed, was someone interested in cozy Friday nights on the couch, someone “who doesn’t want to be in the spotlight.”
Basically, someone not like Moss, as she’s come to learn. Because for all of his smooth moves and uncanny ability to, as Crawley put it, “show up for me,” Moss seemed to arrive at Palm Springs’ La Quinta Resort & Club last summer with visions of podcast hosting, modeling work and sponcon dancing in his head, just like others before him.in other words, he was there for the wrong reasons.
Now, as multiple insiders familiar with their relationship describe Moss as a “fame-seeker,” the first source notes the signs were there all along: “It is obvious now. Things are making sense to her now. She didn’t want to believe it at first but is now heartbroken.”
Because Crawley had been certain she’d be able to sniff out an imposter, knowing what she would and wouldn’t put up with. But it turns out intuition is powerless in the face of overwhelming chemistry.
As viewers saw, Crawley believed in her soul that she’d found her guy in Moss from the moment he stepped out of the limo. Sure, she’d done a little Insta digging beforehand and she didn’t hate his chiseled abs and mega-watt smile, but in person there was something else, that inexplicable belief this was meant to be. “I definitely feel like I just met my husband,” she declared breathlessly.
And the more she and Moss bonded over the loss of her father and his mother and, yes, made out, the more certain she was that the rest of her suitors could pack their bags and go home. “We have this connection where it feels like I’ve known him forever,” she explained to producers. “It’s that intangible chemistry that you just can’t make up and you can’t replace.”
Even better, he seemed just as all-in, telling Crawley, “When we met, I felt love and, like, that’s what I came here for. I’m falling in love with you through this process. I’m not afraid to say that at all. My heart is open and I’m not gonna fight that.”
Can you really blame a girl for getting swept up in it all?
By the time she was flashing a shiny new 4.5-carat diamond, Crawley was so far gone, she bristled at the mere suggestion that what they had was anything less than love at first sight.
“How he makes me feel is literally, like, sunbeams out of my heart, like, into the world,” she explained to Harrison at their make-shift After the Final Rose special. “And I know that sounds so stupid, but I just feel it to my core. And whether it took one day or 10 days or two weeks or two years, this man makes me happy.”
So she dove head first into a future as Mrs. Dale Moss, giddily referring to the South Dakota State alum as “my husband”, announcing her intention to have babies ASAP and dreaming up the perfect way to cement their bond with a collection of island-based elopements. And she brushed off any and all criticism.
“I’d be lying if I said it’s been easy because I’m human,” she admitted on Good Morning America of people questioning Moss’ commitment. “The things people say without knowing the full truth and without seeing exactly how things really happened and genuinely happened, it just blows my mind in a world right now where there’s so much negativity and hate and hard things going on right now.”
But, actually, the full truth seems to be worse than most suspected.
Because Crawley couldn’t shake her anxiety that Moss’ friendship wasn’t as platonic as he claimed it to be. “Dale would always reassure Clare that it was nothing serious,” says the source, but “multiple people have told Clare that Dale was parading around NYC with this girl.” Each time, continues the source, “Clare would confront him about his relationship and tried to question him about it, but he would always deny it.”

Riverdale Premiere Review – Prom Night (5×01)
Riverdale’s finest learned what everyone who has graduated college already knew: prom night isn’t all its cracked up to be.
The senior event tends to be overhyped, which was also the case with this episode. Sadly, prom night didn’t live up to the expectations set forth by the series and almost seemed like an afterthought in the episode that could only be summarized as chaotic, even by Riverdale standards. It was plagued by bad decisions, breakups, and a possibly-real snuff film that played on the big screen as the mystery of the VHS tapes continues to haunt the small town’s residents.
Half the time I find myself wondering “what is going on” as it feels like everyone lives in their own bubble and is disconnected from what’s happening with their peers and family members. Are we all watching the same show? Are we all living in the same reality?
As I mentioned prior, prom seemed like an afterthought to everything else happening in the episode and the seniors barely got to enjoy the dance before being boggled down with real-life issues (well, at least what’s considered real-life in the bizarre world of Riverdale).
Betty and Jughead continued to channel their inner-Nancy Drew to figure out who is behind the VHS tapes instead of just letting the police/ FBI handle it like normal people. Don’t you think dragging them down the rabbit hole is what the auteur wants? Clearly, whoever this is is thoroughly enjoying messing with them.
They had a few failed attempts to pinpoint the auteur who has been sending them disturbing video tapes reenacting some of the most brutal (and private) moments in town. I’ve had several theories about the identity of the auteur, but I think it boils down to Charles, who is constantly in the know but has the ability to play in the background. It was especially telling when the latest snuff film “killed” the video store owner, David, who Charles knew Betty and Jughead were investigating.
But again, what’s the purpose of the tapes to begin with? Is it just a mind game? Is it revenge? And if it is Charles and Chic’s way of getting back at the Cooper/Jones’, why is it extending past Betty and Jughead? We know there was a video of Jason’s killing and now, Archie received one of the Black Hood shooting his father, which reminded him of his moment of cowardice.
Who has it out for the whole town?
Also, what was the point of having Betty and Jughead film a fake snuff film with Reggie killing Cheryl when they knew David wouldn’t fall for it and planned to use the origin of the Black Hood video instead? Sometimes, it seems like Riverdale just wants to see how far it can push its boundaries and it’s not necessary.
And how is no one else but Betty and Jughead concerned about the video that played at prom and put half the school in a trance?
How do the parents just go back home and drink a glass of wine in a relaxing manner? I mean, wine is a way of coping, but where’s the concern? Are they just used to this nowadays? Is this just another day in Riverdale?
Archie’s came to blows with Katy Keene’s K.O. Kelly as he attempted to figure out his future, while Veronica was all about making their relationship her number one priority, which is enough to stress out any man.
The tension between the couple was building throughout the hour, though Ronnie was quite oblivious to it. It was actually quite heartbreaking to see Ronnie put her plans on hold and decide to defer at Barnard so that they could work side-by-side with Hiram, who offered Archie the gig of deputy Mayor.
Look, all Im saying is I hope that Archie doesn’t take the job. By now, he should’ve learned not to make deals with the devil.
Throughout the episode, Archie questioned his relationship with Veronica and kept insisting that he’s holding her back. Usually, I’m not a fan of a man thinking he has that much power over a woman, but in this case, it seemed to ring true as Veronica was making all her decisions with Archie in mind all while he was second-guessing his feelings for her and their future together.
And you know what they say, “if you love two people at the same time, choose the second one. Because if you really loved the first one, you wouldn’t have fallen for the second one.”
Archie decided, like an idiot, that the best time to tell Veronica that the song – which she awkwardly sang as a dedication to him at La Bonne Nuit even after he threw it in the garbage – was written for Betty was at prom. Can you say poor timing? Archie, you really couldn’t wait until after prom? What makes you think that leaving the girl heartbroken on the dance floor is a good idea?
Though, I guess we should just be happy that Archie was finally honest about his feelings even if it meant losing the best thing that’s ever happened to him.
Veronica was taken aback, understandably, but I’m really impressed with the fact that she didn’t slut-shame Betty or blame her for what happened. It’s so common to see women turning on other women instead of holding men/both parties accountable for their actions.
It was big of Ronnie to suggest keeping this on the hush in order to protect Bughead. Yes, Jughead deserves to know the truth, but it’s not her place to spill the beans; Betty needs to be the one to come clean about it.
I’m not really sure what the plan is for everyone moving into the seven-year jump. We know Veronica is going to be married to a “controlling and jealous alpha male” named Chad, which means that her breakup with Archie is long-term.
Will Jughead call it quits with Betty upon finding out the truth about her brief tryst with Archie? Will Betty and Archie explore their feelings for each other and become a couple? While I definitely felt the sparks between them when Archie played her that song and when they kissed, Bughead has been pretty solid lately.
No one was having luck in the romance department at prom. While Cheryl and Toni were crowned the first “queens” of Riverdale High, their happiness was also short-lived due to a Romeo and Juliet situation involving their families. I guess this is Roberto Aguirre Sacasa’s way of diving deeper into Toni’s storyline, but it’s unfortunate that he decided the only way to give her more to do was to destroy the perfect relationship that is #Choni.
Toni was keeping her relationship with Cheryl from her family because she was afraid they wouldn’t accept it — not because she’s a lesbian but because she’s with a Blossom. I guess that’s sort of a relief!
Sadly, this proves that no matter what Cheryl does, she’ll never be able to escape her family’s reputation. Will Toni’s nana come between them for good? Or is this temporary. Again, we know that at some point, Vanessa Morgan’s real-life pregnancy will be written into the show, but the question is — who is her partner?
- Seriously, what is the deal with Hiram Lodge beating up criminals in the dead of the night? It was verrrry briefly mentioned, but he’s leaning into this vigilante of the neighborhood vibe in a similar way Archie did previously.
- Mr. Honey is alive, so, it turns out, these “snuff films” are faux snuff films. I guess that’s a silver lining.
- The identity of the auteur needs to be someone that actually matters… not a random video store owner! Stop messing with us!
- Mr. Weatherbee is back after the whole “Farm” situation, but I don’t think he’s doing all that great.
- Did anyone else feel like Cheryl should’ve also invited Kevin and Fangs to join her and the other couples during the victory dance? She was celebrating a big moment for the LGBTQ community, and she was the reason why Fangs and Kevin couldn’t run for “kings.” They deserved some recognition! It seemed like such a miss by the writers!
- Why is Jelly Bean at a rave that doubles as some kinky, weird underground immersive screening? She’s like 14. Go home!
What did you think of the Riverdale Season 5 premiere episode? Are you looking forward to the flash-forward? I think the series needs a good shake-up because at this point, the VHS mystery has been dragged out for almost a year (COVID interruption contributed to that!).
