CHECK OUT THE MOST RUTHLESS REALITY TV VILLIANS EVER...
1. Game Of Thrones' Lena Headey and Jerome Flynn
We’re kind of obsessed with the fact that Cersei Lannister and Bronn used to date tbh but apparently it ended in disaster. According to sources, the pair dated back in the early 2000s waaaay before Game Of Thrones started but it ended so badly that they refuse to appear in any scenes together. It’s rumoured it’s even written into their contracts. A source told The Telegraph: “Jerome and Lena aren’t on speaking terms any more and they are never in the same room at the same time. It’s a pity because they appeared to have patched things up for a while, but now the word is they should be kept apart at all costs.”
2. Twilight's Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattison
We all remember the days when THOSE pictures of Kristen Stewart cheating on Robert Pattison with director Rupert Sanders came out. Awkward. Although they had finished filming Twilight, they still had to promote the final film together. There was talk of them reuniting after Kristen appeared desperate to get him back but, as we all know, that didn’t happen. YIKES.
3. Geordie Shore's Vicky Pattison and Ricci Guarnaccio
Vicky and Ricci had a VERY turbulent relationship with the couple fighting constantly in front of their co-stars. After the pair got engaged, Vicky had finally had enough and called it quits. It became so bad that Ricci didn’t come back to the show for the following series.
4. One Tree Hill's Sophia Bush and Chad Michael Murray
Brooke and Lucas were meant to be and we won’t hear anything about Peyton, OKAY? You got what you wanted, they ended up together so don’t rub it in. After Sophia and Chad got together on the set of OTH, they ended up getting married a few years later. Unfortunately, after rumours of Chad cheating on her with Paris Hilton swirled, the couple split after five months of marriage. They continued to work on One Tree Hill with Chad’s character cheating on her’s on screen. DEJA VOUS.
5. Dexter's Michael C Hall and Jennifer Carpenter...
The pair starred on Dexter as brother and sister but IRL the couple dated and married in 2009. They split just two years later and rumours came out that he had cheated on her with Julia Stiles, who had appeared on the show, something which Julia denied. They worked together for another two years after until Dexter came to an end. Including a story where Jennifer's character fell in love with her brother. This isn't GOT guys.
6. Gilmore Girls' Alexis Bledel and Milo Ventimiglia
It was a STRUGGLE to decide whether you thought Rory Gilmore should be with Logan, Jess or Dean but IRL she made the choice for us (technically twice with Jared Padalecki) when she dated Mila. But sources say that they had a super rocky relationship with public shouting matches on and off set. After they split they had to still work together in Stars Hollow and then reunite in 2016 for the Gilmore Girls reunion mini series.
7. TOWIE's Chloe Sims and Elliot Wright
After having a bit of a fiery relationship, Chloe and Elliot called it quits but that didn’t stop them fighting it out anytime they could. Tbh it provided us with some GREAT entertainment on TOWIE.
8. Heroes' Milo Ventimiglia and Hayden Panettiere
We’re not that sure what happened between Hayden and Milo during their relationship, during the filming of Heroes, but what we do know is that Milo was asked what he learned from dating Hayden and he replied ‘Don’t do it’. Ouch.
9. Brothers and Sisters' Emily VanCamp and Dave Annable
During the filming of Brothers and Sisters, Dave and Emily fell for each other on and off set. After the couple split, Dave met now-wife Odette Yustman and publically declared he had ‘traded up’ while Emily gushed over her now-husband Josh Bowman and stated to Lucky: "I'll tell you one thing I don't want. A guy who sits around and plays video games and smokes pot." We don’t know if that was about Dave or not but it was post-split. EEK.
10. Ed Westwick and Jessica Szohr
Although it was Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass who were on and off like a light switch during Gossip Girl it was Ed and Jessica who took the crown off-screen. According to sources, Jessica cheated on Ed and his jealousy issues became too much for him to handle. But all through this the couple had to play Chuck and Vanessa on the hit show. They’re good actors at least eh?
11. Ex On The Beach's Megan McKenna and Jordan Davies
After meeting on Ex On The Beach, Jordan proposed to Megan on set and the pair looked like they would tie the knot and live happily ever after. However that defo didn't happen and it ended it a flurry of accusations from both sides of cheating and lying.
