We recently published a comprehensive list of the Year in Kanye West. But while we were able to catch every big moment from North West's birth to touring with Jesus, another 'Ye moment came in just under the wire: being dubbed "Worst Neighbor of 2013."

Major real estate website Zillow recently posted the results of their seventh annual Zillow Celebrity Neighbor Survey in which they poll Americans on who they would and would not wish to borrow a cup of flour from. And the people spoke…against Kimye.

While those polled would welcome the likes of Jimmy Kimmel or Blake Shelton into their backyard BBQ, Kanye and his lady knocked the entire cast of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" (last year's winners) out of the way for the "worst" title.

Zillow Chief Marketing Officer Amy Bohutinsky explained the main issues Americans have with the idea of having Kim, Yeezy and little North right next door.

“No one wants to live next door to a family who has cameras following them everywhere and seems to seek out as much attention as possible," she said.

But Bohutinsky also came to the couple's defense, explaining that it's not just them, it's everyone like them:

"However, with more than one-third of surveyed Americans preferring a non-celebrity neighbor, what remains clear is that many people don’t want to live next to any celebrity, regardless of why they are famous."

Perhaps Kanye's recent oath to stop ranting for six months will garner them some neighborly love for next year's vote.

Although we're pretty sure 'Ye probably digs the title.
