In Honor Of ‘Awkward’ Schemer Eva, We Present The Top She-Devils In TV History

A definitive ranking of all the ladies you've loved to hate.

Any question about Eva’s schemer status was officially laid to rest on the latest episode of “Awkward,” thanks to one black lacy thong that didn’t belong in Jenna Hamilton‘s bed.

The New York transplant is spitefully trying to drive a wedge between Jenna and Matty by lying, deleting crucial emails and planting panties in innocent bedrooms that aren’t hers. Even resident PHHS Mean Queen Sadie Saxton has found herself an unlucky recipient of Eva’s evil ways.

The last two epic minutes of the episode has us convinced that Eva’s BS is going to come back to bite her in her conniving little butt on Tuesday night’s season finale. Until then, let us rank the biggest she-devils in the history of television, with Eva taking the very mild Number 20 spot. Have a look and tell us – who’d we leave out?

19. Naomi Clark (played by AnnaLynne McCord) from “90210
A rich, snobbish girl from West Beverly Hills, Naomi could be cruel and manipulative to anyone who dared cross her path, especially if she thought you slept with her man (ahem, Annie). Still, she had a softer side…once or twice…when faced with her own insecurities.

18. Ursula Buffay (played by Lisa Kudrow) from “Friends
This crappy “friend” shot porn flicks under her twin sister Phoebe’s name, lied about joining the Peace Corps, forged her mom’s suicide note and broke Joey “How YOU Doin’” Tribbiani’s heart. We like to call this episode “The One Where Ursula Sucks Balls.”

17. Nellie Oleson (played by Alison Arngrim) from “Little House on the Prairie
The spoiled brat from the popular 1970s series set the bar high for future fictional mean girls, antagonizing sweet Laura Ingalls Wilder every chance she got. The actress who played Nellie even unsurprisingly titled her autobiography “Confessions of a Prairie Bitch.”

16. Quinn Fabray (played by Dianna Agron) from “Glee
This former high school Celibacy Club president got knocked up during a one-nighter and later lied about the baby daddy. As the quintessential popular mean girl, Quinn’s driving force throughout most of “Glee” was to be crowned Prom Queen. Priorities, much?

15. Maryann Forrester (played by Michelle Forbes) from “True Blood
A devoted follower of the Greek god Dionysus, Maenad Maryann got her kicks from casting spells on the townfolk of Bon Temps, hosting insane orgies and thriving on mayhem and chaos.

14. Alexis Carrington Colby (played by Joan Collins) from “Dynasty
A prime example of a woman scorned, the antagonist from the 1980s soap made it her mission to make the lives of her ex-husband and children a living hell.

13. Valerie Malone (played by Tiffani-Amber Thiessen) from “Beverly Hills 90210
The “90210” newcomer arrived at the start of Season 5 and proceeded to fake a pregnancy, sabotage the lives of her so-called friends and manipulate her way into Dylan McKay’s heart. And you thought Brenda Walsh was bad.

12. Julie Cooper (played by Melinda Clarke) from “The O.C.
This terrible TV mom, who slept with her teenage daughter’s ex-boyfriend, makes Lacey Hamilton from her “Carefrontation letter” days look like a saint. At least Lacey never slept with Matty. Or Jake. Or Luke. Er, not to our knowledge.

11. Wilhelmina Slater (played by Vanessa Williams) from “Ugly Betty
This catty See (Cee?) You Next Tuesday tried to institutionalize her own flesh and blood, and she stole a dead man’s sperm in an attempt to move up the corporate ladder. Conniving…or just plain crazy?

10. Emily Thorne (played by Emily VanCamp) “Revenge
The gal formerly known as Amanda Clarke will stop at nothing to redeem her late father’s reputation and frame the family that royally screwed him, giving it right back and then some.

9. Number Six (played by Tricia Helfer) from “Battlestar Galactica
You’d have to be pure she-vil to murder a defenseless baby…with a smile on your face the entire time.

8. Amanda Woodward (played by Heather Locklear) from “Melrose Place
The malicious ad exec from the popular ’90s series was a bit of a pyromaniac with a penchant for using threats, schemes and mental abuse to get her way, be it in the boardroom…or the bedroom.

7. Alison DiLaurentis (played by Sasha Pieterse) from “Pretty Little Liars
The former teenage “It” girl and master manipulator who was mysteriously resurrected from the dead is hell-bent on using her friends’ secrets against them, not to mention tormenting all the teens in Rosewood.

6. Katherine Pierce (played by Nina Dobrev) from “Vampire Diaries
This ruthless, blood-sucking seductress spent 500 years toying with the hearts of the Salvatore brothers, assisting in multiple sacrifices and turning a few innocent townspeople into vampires themselves. The “Twilight” baddies would be proud of this deceitful doppelganger.

5. Maya Lewis (played by Khandi Alexander) of “Scandal
Over 20 years of imprisonment (thanks to her “beloved” husby, no less) drove Mama Pope from Mean Girl status right over into Evil Byotch territory (a.k.a. a cold-blooded killer with terrorists for best friends).

4. Georgina Sparks (played by Michelle Trachtenberg) from “Gossip Girl
The recurring nightmare and pretend Bible-thumper pulled all the Upper East Side socialite tricks, from drugging Serena to blackmailing Blair to lying about Dan Humphrey’s lovechild. If Satan had a sidekick, it would probably be this gal.

3. Livia Soprano (played by Nancy Marchand) from “The Sopranos
Wretched Livia rocked ratty housecoats and had no shame about putting a hit out on her only son Tony. If anyone could wear an oxygen mask and still make homicidal mobsters feel absolutely powerless, it was this old bat.

2. Cercei Lannister (played by Lena Headey) from “Game of Thrones
The power-hungry brother-lover has a trio of incestuous kids and actually plotted to kill her own husband before his accidental death. The calculating Queen abides by few morals and won’t hesitate to undermine her youngest brother just after she’s done gettin’ it on with the other one.

1. Vee Parker (played by Lorraine Toussaint) from “Orange Is the New Black
Pennsatucky, who? The real “OITNB” psychopath goes by the name of Vee and is Walter White reincarnated. She uses foster children to execute her dirty work…and isn’t afraid to kill them if it means keeping her heroin business intact.
