Top 10 bad boyfriends -- as inspired by Operation Cock Block target Bill Sullivan

If Bill Sullivan were on trial for being a bad boyfriend, we're pretty sure he'd be found guilty. Exhibit A? The evidence presented by his exes in this week's feature, "Operation Cock Block Tries to Protect Women's Hearts and Pocketbooks From This Crooked Casanova."

We're also sure that Bill would have lots of company in Bad Boyfriend Jail. To prove it, we've compiled a list of Ten Other Bad Boyfriends. Ladies, be warned.

10. Quincy Vanderbilt Quincy Vanderbilt is not only a bad boyfriend, he's also the world's worst pet-sitter.

Last year, the 24-year-old and his girlfriend drove from North Dakota to Denver so she could try out for American Idol at Invesco Field. His girlfriend brought along her terrier, and good ol' Quincy agreed to check on it while she no doubt waited to impress the Idol judges with her rendition of Carrie Underwood's "Before He Cheats."

But Quincy didn't come through. Instead, he left the dog in the car with all of the windows rolled up, which killed the terrier and earned Quincy one count of animal cruelty. It's a good thing his girlfriend didn't bring along her kids, too.
