Television’s whiny wives

Television’s whiny wives

Skyler White from Breaking Bad:

First of all, oh my goodness that jaw. Secondly, we never really understood the word bellyaching till we became acquainted with Mrs White. Nag about this, threaten about that, stick jaw out upto Canada for the other…..Geez. It’s a wonder Walter didn’t start doing meth already. Let him be the bad ass he was always destined to be, you stupid woman.

Jessica Brody from Homeland:

At first, we really liked the svelte Mrs Brody. She had our sympathy in the first half of season one but her descent into society Congress wife really irked us. And sorry, her speech at the fundraiser wasn’t all that great. We all know they clapped because she was hot. She also managed to show her supreme ignorance when she advised Brody to “tell the CIA to back off”. It’s the CIA, lady! Not a classroom bully.

Marla Daniels from The Wire:

For the first two seasons, Marla lived vicariously through her husband’s life because she didn’t have one of her own. “Oh honey, take the bar, screw all this police shit.” Don’t you get that he’s the best lieutenant in all of Baltimore? Then finally, when she decides to get her own career, suddenly he has to pander to her ridiculous husband and wife play acting? Bitch alert.

Betty Draper from Mad Men:

So pretty and so damn annoying. Betty Draper is a classic whiny women who doesn’t know what she wants and when she does, throws a fit about it. She suspects her husband of having affairs but can’t stand up to him about it and usually just ends up yelling at her kids instead. Although we are glad she finally leaves Don, (who leaves Don Draper, who?) her shrill squeak is something we can never get rid off.

Carrie from King of Queens:

Most family-based sitcoms have crazy wives (Modern Family, Everybody loves Raymond, My wife and kids) and husbands who stand by them and love them anyway. But Carrie is a downright bitch. She is mean, awful and super bossy with Doug and it defintely stems from the fact that she thinks she is way out of his league. Just one of these days, I would love to see Doug pick her up and snap her into two.

The wives on Desperate Housewives:

While we have lost track of this show and who’s married to who and who’s having an affair with who, they were all pretty damn bossy, self-centered and needy wives (except Lynette. Felicity Huffman 4 eva) which is of course what led to the aforementioned affairs.
