Kate Gosselin, "Kate Plus 8"
She's been booted from basic cable for the time being, but her controlling, joyless persona lives on in our memories as a reminder to keep an eye out for her brood's tell-all memoirs at a later date. Without a sad sack husband to kick around, she has turned her attention to managing her kids with all the nurturing and adoration most people reserve for boxes of Costco toilet paper or house slippers. While it's always nice to be reminded that, no matter what we do in life, it probably won't mess up our kids quite as badly as the Gosselins have messed up theirs, it's not something on which we care to dwell.
