Posted On : September 19, 2011 by Geoff Williams

Nurse JackieCredit rating: 0

Character: Jackie Peyton

Show: "Nurse Jackie" (Showtime)

Credit card role model: Possibly the worst ever

Reasoning: Jackie used a post office box to open a credit card account without telling her husband. Then she used the secret account to pay for her secret prescription drug habit (Vicodin, Adderall, Percocet and Oxycontin). Enough said.
