What a Creep: Alec Baldwin (Rude Little Pig Creep)

What a Creep: Alec Baldwin

Season 8, Episode 10

“Rude Little Pig” Creep

 

Alec Baldwin is, of course, the eldest of the four Baldwin brothers, who are all actors with varying degrees of success. 

He’s a very talented actor who moves between TV, movies, and stage with ease. He’s won a ton of awards including two Emmy Awards, three Golden Globe Awards, and seven Screen Actors Guild Awards. 

He’s also a creep with a nasty temper who called his then-11-year-old daughter a pig, and he can’t seem to stop punching photographers and dropping gay slurs.

Trigger warnings: Paparazzi punching, gay slurs, and being an asshole

What a Creep: Pablo Picasso (Art Creep)

What a Creep

Season 8, Episode 8

Pablo Picasso 

Pablo Picasso is one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. His art career lasted 78 years, creating more than 147,800 works of art, including 13,500 paintings or designs, 100,000 prints or engravings, 34,000 book illustrations, and 300 sculptures or ceramics.

Yes, he was an amazing artist, but he was a garbage human being.

Picasso was unfaithful to every woman he claimed to love, and, at least indirectly, drove two of them to suicide. He used them for his own self-serving needs, for inspiration, and then moved on to his next inspiration.

Trigger warning: Domestic abuse, suicide, and cheating, lots and lots of cheating

What a Creep: James “Whitey” Bulger (Gangster Creep)

What A Creep: Whitey Bulger

Season 8, Episode 7

In his 89 years of life, James “Whitey” Bulger mostly did whatever the hell he pleased—and usually got away with it. The notorious Boston gangster held his hometown in his clutches as the leader of the Winter Hill Gang. He was involved with everything from racketeering, extortion, murder, narcotics, and money laundering. He was eventually charged with the murder of 19 people (that we even know about) after being on the lamb for 16 years.

His story was told (not very well) in the Johnny Depp movie Black Mass (the book is much better!) The character of “Costello” in The Departed (played by Jack Nicholson) was inspired by the story of Whitey Bulger.

(Spoiler alert) He wound up killed by a younger version of himself on his first day at a prison in West Virginia. His whole life he railed against rats and snitches—but it turns out he was one of the biggest FBI informants in the 70s & 80s which shielded him from the law.

His legacy of mayhem and murder continues in the culture of Boston and the number of supposed “good guys” who were complicit in his crimes will blow your mind.  

Trigger Warnings:

Murder, violence, sexual assault, and Margo’s frequent attempts at a Boston accent.

What a Creep  

Season 7, Episode 8

Evel Knievel “Creepy Daredevil”

Evel Knievel is a true American-made superstar who is considered the father of extreme sports and the idol of several generations of folks who love the thrill of this death-defying jumps he created and the personae he created.

He presented himself as THE American modern-day hero who tried to inspire people to reach for their dreams and be upstanding citizens. But underneath his red, white, and blue uniform, the capes, the bravado, and his rugged good looks was a troubled man who could at times, quite frankly, be a huge abusive asshole.

He won it all and lost it under 15 years. But even though he has been gone for over 13 years now, his name and his legend are still revered by many who found him an inspiration in a dreary time in the world.

Trigger Warnings: Physical abuse, child abuse, verbal abuse, racism, misogyny, and anti-Semitism.
