23 TV Moms We Love to Hate

at .

Not all mothers are created equal.

We love to celebrate the nurturing, supportive, and selfless moms on the small screen, but for every Jane Villanueva there's a Cersei Lannister.

Skip the Mother's Day cards for this group of the most selfish, manipulative and overbearing TV moms we love to hate.

1. Cersei Lannister (Game of Thrones)

Cersei Lannister (Game of Thrones)
Cold and power-hungry are just two of the best ways to describe Cersei. She also gave birth to the worst child ever, Joffrey. Although she tries to paint herself as a mom who would do anything for her kids, when it comes right down to it, she's always looking out for number one.

2. Diana Dubois (Empire)

Diana Dubois (Empire)
It's hard to believe that the same woman who played one of the most beloved TV moms in history is also behind the cruel and conniving Diana Dubois. Phylicia Rashad plays her Empire character to perfection, blowing up the already strained ties holding the Lyon family together.

3. Penelope Blossom (Riverdale)

Penelope Blossom (Riverdale)
If her obsession with keeping up appearances at all costs wasn't enough to put Penelope Blossom on the list of Riverdale's worst moms, sending her daughter to conversion therapy definitely cemented her spot.

4. Camila Vargas (Queen of the South)

Camila Vargas (Queen of the South)
While we've seen Camila's nurturing side -- with her daughter, Isabela, and her protege, Teresa -- when it comes right down to it, she's a ruthless drug lord. If any of her crew steps out of line, she is the first one to remind them that she is not to be disrespected.

5. Betty Draper (Mad Men)

Betty Draper (Mad Men)
Beneath that beautiful, fabulously dressed exterior is a heart of pure ice with questionable mothering skills. Locking Sally in a closet and psychologically abusing her son for trading the sandwich she made him for candy are just some of the reasons why Mad Men fans loved to hate Betty Draper.

6. Darla (Queen Sugar)

Darla (Queen Sugar)
Viewers did not warm up to Darla, an addict and former sex worker who was once caught entertaining a john with her infant son in the room. The one difference with this mother is that she acknowledges her flaws and is trying to improve so she can be a good mother.
