16 Of The Worst TV Moms Of All-Time
5. Livia Soprano onÂ The Sopranos
Nothing shows the love a mother has for her son like trying to have him whacked. More than once. But Livia’s disdain for Tony and his siblings was evident long before she attempted to have one of her children killed. She was abusive to all of her kids, but for some reason, Tony really pissed her off. It certainly didn’t help that he had put her in a nursing home (in his defense, it was a pretty nice home!). Livia enlisted the help of Tony’s own uncle to off him, and continuously made an issue of Tony seeing a psychiatrist. When Junior didn’t take the bait, she told Artie that Tony burned his restaurant down, probably hoping that he would do what Junior couldn’t. Livia died alone, which is probably how she wanted it anyway.
