The 10 Worst Moms on TV
Constance (Jessica Lange)
5. Constance ("American Horror Story")
Whether she's locking her Down syndrome-affected daughter in a closet filled with mirrors or badgering her boyfriend into smothering the deformed son that she keeps hidden away in the attic, this faded Southern belle's maternal instinct has clearly gone horrifically awry. On the other hand, she does fight to keep the children she actually wants close to her... like the demonic grandson conceived by her ghostly son, Tate, and her next-door neighbor Vivien Harmon. Since the show is rebooting itself in Season 2, we won't see how the two are getting along, but we're sure that under Constance's firm guidance, that little tyke is going to grow up to be a real killer.
