It was something of a bittersweet victory when the Supreme Court struck down DOMA and Prop 8 on Wednesday, because while it's wonderful that married same-sex couples will receive the same federal benefits of marriage as heterosexual couples, it's also presumably the end of the NOH8 campaign. Now reality stars will have to duct tape their tits on their own time with far less political significance. Here, we look back on the best of the worst NOH8 portraits.
Above: Jersey Shore's JWOWW and The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Dirty Low Down Monkey With a Wig On.
Left to right: Tamra Barney from The Real Housewives of Orange County, a lesbian pal she kissed on the lips for a storyline, and La La Vasquez, the girl who used to host the Flavor of Love reunion specials before she became Kim Kardashian's best friend.
Left to right: Dancing with the Stars' Karina Smirnoff, Survivor: Tocantins contestant Candace Smith recreating Janet Jackson's Rolling Stone cover shoot with Big Brother 3 contestant Marcellas Reynolds.
Paris Hilton wearing a picture frame; Tara Reid trying to reach her agent who never takes her calls anyway which is why it doesn't matter that she's using a phone while her mouth is duct taped.
Babies and puppies who wish this weren't happening: Aubree Houska from Teen Mom 2; Hugh Hefner's runaway bride with some poor dog.
Subtlety: Brooke Hogan and Nick Verreos get very literal with props so we'd go, "Oh that's Hulk Hogan's daughter who was on a reality show to launch her singing career and that guy from Project Runway who sews."
If a picture says 1000 words, these portraits of Dr. Drew and Terri Ivens are saying all of them out of order, like when a person is about to have a stroke.
Wouldn't it have been more effective to have taped shut Marlee Matlin's interpreter's mouth? Wouldn't it have been more effective to have taped Larry King's suspenders together?
Here are two men—Slade Smiley and Bobby Zarin—who have been featured on The Real Housewives but are not actual cast members. We never would've achieved marriage equality without their celebrity.
