But while the relationships portrayed in TV shows may often
exaggerate the worst in people, sometimes they reflect the best. So
here’s a salute to our fave TV friendships and the lessons we’ve
learned from them.
says TV can’t be educational? Sure, a lot of the representations
of people on the tube are way over-the-top – like soap operas, and
not-so-real “reality” shows like
Emily, Hannah, Aria, and Spencer from Pretty
Friends stick together in tough times.
foursome has been able to stick together through it all. The girls
are always there at the send of a text when one of their crew needs
help. Even when others have turned their backs on one of the girls
(like Spencer’s fam over her suspicion s about Ian), they know they
can depend on each other, and that’s what matters.
Carly and Sam from iCarly
Opposites can make a perfect pair.
their differences, when these two come together, they make a magical
pairing, just like PB&J. Though they’re day-and-night in so
many ways, their quirky sense of humor (and love for each other)
helped them put together a mega-successful web show. Carly and Sam
show that when it comes to best friends, it’s all about
appreciating your differences and sharing your similarities.
Cece and Rocky from Shake
Best friends can
and Rocky are close – some would even say too
They dance together, go to school together – and even have a
special routine for when they eat ice cream together. When Deuce,
their guy bud, makes a comment about their tighter-than-tight
friendship, they begin to wonder if they need some space. They
realize, however, that they love spending time together, and it’s
up to them if they want to be glued at the hip.
and Finn from Glee
can be friends after a relationship.
and Finn’s relationship has had plenty of twists and turns, from
Rachel’s almost-creepy crush to their secret kiss in the auditorium
to their relationship and messy break-up. When Finn encourages
Rachel’s efforts at songwriting, and she joins him on a stake-out
to see if Quinn is cheating, it’s clear that these two have
overcome any post-dating awkwardness and have each other’s backs.
“Finchel” might be back on, but Rachel and Finn’s time apart
proved that it is possible to make the ex-BF to BGF transition.

are most like you and your BFF? Spill!
