If strong women and sadistic female domination are topics you generally gravitate towards, then the following list of bad, scratch that—evil—bitches is sure to please. And I’m not talking about the PG13 broads that shoplift earrings from the mall or throw glasses in nightclubs, but rather the professional-wrestler-turned-serial-killer and Saudi princess types that enslave their maids. You know, somethin’ light. Peep the barbaric breakdown below.

Who’s the Unfairest of Them All?

Meshael Alayban definitely isn’t your classic princess. Instead of donning glittery gowns and having little woodland critters flutter around her head, she’s more interested in things like keeping her Kenyan maid captive. Currently out on $5m bail, 42-year-old Alayban, one of Prince Abdulrahman bin Nasser bin Abdulaziz al-Saud’s six wives, has been accused of forcing the victim to work 16 hours a day for much less pay than initially promised, amongst other atrocities.

In order to avoid escape attempts, the maid’s passport was confiscated as well, and returned only long enough to accompany her evil employer from Saudi Arabia to California, where she continued suffering enslavement by at least eight individuals. The poor lass was finally able to flee and flag down a bus for help, but due to her incredible wealth, Alayban remains a free woman—just equipped with a GPS tracker and sans passport. If eventually charged, she’ll face up to 12 years in the pen.

Mama Yayo

Fuck a fairy godmother, meet Griselda Blanco, the “Cocaine Godmother.” Rather than turning pumpkins into chariots, Griselda flipped literal tons of cocaine into an entire Miami drug dynasty—kinda like a Columbian Tony Montana, just for real and with a vagina.

At just five feet tall, she was already a seasoned banger in the streets, while Pablo Escobar was still only doing petty car boosts in Medellin. A few other cool facts about Blanco? She outlived three husbands, all whom died in drug deals gone bad, named her youngest son Michael Corleone (swag), had a reputation for motorcycle drive-bys, and tallied up an assumed body count of about 250 by the time she died at age 69. Not bad for a bitch barely tall enough to get on the rides at Six Flags…

Hide Ya Grandmothers

Then there’s Juana Barraza a.k.a. La Mataviejitas (Old Lady Killer), a 57-year old professional wrestler turned serial killer from the Mexico City outskirts. Subjected to a horrendous youth by her alcoholic mother, it’s no real surprise that Barraza turned to the dark side at a tender age. Prior to her arrests, she worked as a professional lucha libre wrestler under the appropriate name of La Dama del Silencio. Though it’s believed that she might have dropped up to 40 victims—
almost all elderly women—Mexican courts eventually charged her with 11 counts of murder, and a cool 759 years in prison. ¡Ay, caramba!

Australian Psycho

Paving the way for likeminded Aussie psychopaths, Katherine Mary Knight is the first Australian woman to ever get a life sentence without parole—and with good fucking reason.

Also a victim of unfortunate upbringing and abuse within the family, Katherine developed sociopathic behavior by the time she attended high school. Her first marriage was to a poor guy named David Kellet, a horribly violent affair that landed her in and out of psychiatric wards due to blood-hungry episodes and an attempt to leave her baby daughter on a live train track.

When she’d had enough of him, she moved onto David Saunders, another sorry sap that was powerless against her fits of rage—namely an instance where she slit the throat of his dingo puppy right before his eyes. At this point, with four kids in tow, Knight set her sights on the final and most infamous victim, John Price.

It began with her usual pattern of abuses: assault, stabbings, etc., but ultimately fed up with Price’s reluctance to marry her, she took to his body with a butcher knife—37 fucking times. As if that wasn’t brutal enough, she then proceeded to skin his body, hang the ‘suit’ in their living room, decapitate him, cook several body parts, and serve them along with a medley of veggies and gravy for his children to come home to. There were even place cards beside each plate with his kid’s names on them. Jesus fucking Christ, and I thought the puppy slashing was OD…

Fanger Banger

Last but not least, I obviously couldn’t exclude Tracey Wigginton, the “Lesbian Vampire Killer.” Also an Australian like the previous crazer (must be something in the Vegemite) her blood-thirst was an obsession since early on when she’d feed on pig and cow blood from the local butcher.

When animal innards stopped doing the job, she evolved to sipping blood from her girlfriend’s slit wrists, the trigger that finally led her to murder 47-year-old Edward Baldock in October of ’89.

Along with her lover and two friends, Wigginton lured the drunken victim into a quiet park and stabbed him so many times in the back and chest that his head apparently almost fell off. Turned into a human blood-sprinkler, she drank from his body like a fountain as her friends watched. Now after almost 20 years she’s free to walk, but between temptations like Twilight and True Blood, I predict a very rapid rate of relapse.
