  2. Nicki Minaj

    Though Mariah didn't name any names, it's pretty obvious that she and Nicki did NOT get along on "Idol." Could it be that Nicki is the devil Mariah's talking about? Still, it takes two to tango.

  3. Jennifer Lopez

    What's with all these "Idol" judges?! J-Lo didn't share a judging table with Mariah or Nicki, but rumor has it that she was pretty difficult on the set, too.

  4. Christina Aguilera

    From one reality competition show to another... "Voice" coach Christina Aguilera is playing nice this year, but in seasons past, she was known for her constant on-air bickering with fellow coach Adam Levine.

  5. NeNe Leakes

    The "Real Housewives" franchise is full of divas, but perhaps the most well-known chick with an attitude, is "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star NeNe Leakes. That girl's got a mouth on her...

  6. Omarosa


    One of the first reality TV show villains ever, Omarosa was the woman everyone loved to hate on the first season of "The Apprentice."

Wait a second... if "American Idol" is "hell," then who's "Satan"? Mariah Carey had some not-so-kind words about her former gig as an "American Idol" judge. The singer recently told radio show Hot 97 that her experience on the reality singing show was like "going to work every day in hell with Satan." Yikes.

But Carey quickly followed that up with "Nah, I'm just playing. It didn't affect me that much — I was just disappointed." But what was she disappointed in? The songstress did have a very public on-air feud with fellow judge Nicki Minaj. Maybe that's what ruined the "Idol" experience for her?

Still, you can't cure diva. And both Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj had a reputation of being difficult on set. But who's the biggest reality show diva of them all?

From Mariah Carey to Nicki Minaj to other reality show vixens, we want to know who you think is the biggest reality TV diva.

    My daughter says she is a class A piece of garbage, and she wouldn't watch Idol last year because of her. (I never watch any of these reality shows, they are total crap.)

    They're all divas. I'm surprised Mariah can see where she's going with that nose so far up in the air. Oh boo hoo Mariah! It was hell that paid you probably $200,000 a pop just to be there. Yep life is soooo rough for you poor little celebs. I would think the fact of being married to Nick Canon would be more hell worthy.

    I've seen way more diva-like behaviors (most Real Housewives members to be exact). These don't even cut the ice when it comes to impolite behavior on set.

    Who was she expecting to find in hell, St. Peter? Besides, how would she know unless she's been there?

    The Human Rights Foundation are stating that not only is JLo the biggest diva, but the one of most evil women in the world, after she was caught being affiliated and performing to the most dangerous murders dictators in the world in June of this year in Turkmenistan? The Human Rights Foundation is also stating the Jlo has received over 10 million of the dictator’s blood money over the last couple of years for performing to these dangerous dictators at their yearly celebration parties, and after she was caught, she show no shame or guilt and kept the money instead of donated all that blood money she received? That is pure evil?

    Omarosa is the only true Reality Star on this list so she is the only one who should qualify.

    The only reason I watched the show was to see her and Mariah argue. I had't watched American Idol in years.

    She needed to be a lot less threating to her fellow judges.

    I can not stand the way she talks... Her voice is worst than finger nails on a chalk board for me.

    Omarosa! Obama probably took lying lessons from her.

    From my limited viewing Howard Stern deserves an Honorable Mention even if he is a man.

    When a commercial jetliner crashed into the 14th Street Bridge near National Airport in a snowstorm, killing about 100 people, he called the airline company and asked how much a flight from National to the bridge cost.

    I heard him with my own ears.

    On the X Factor or whatever, he is just as evil.

    Good choice.
    I only watch reality tv when they have a reunion special on. Even then, I don't pay much attention to the bs that gets spewed.

    Celebrity retard inspiring reality TV is the work of the cumulative man effort of "Satan".

    It encourages mediocrity and banality.

    I can't believe Mariah is playing the sympathy card.Wasn't she the one when they first said she might be a judge,she angled for a bigger paycheck than J-Lo.Then Nick said they couldn't afford his wife.A couple of years with her & he is turning in a diva just like her.Mariah needs to stop with the divaness & raise her kids.
