We’ve all taken one of those “Which TV character are you?” quizzes (maybe that’s a quiz we’ll see in the app soon??). We often see bits of ourselves and our friends in a lot of TV characters, and sometimes a character’s friendships resemble our own.
There are a lot of fictional characters we wish were our BFFs, but these vinas in particular are top notch friends:
DONNA PAULSON IN SUITS
Donna may be an assistant on the show, but she’s a boss in the office. Associates and partners come to her when they need advice, especially when seeking some tough love. She’s also the right-hand woman to paralegal Rachel Zane. Rachel can always count on Donna when she needs a stiff drink and a quick therapy session.
CRISTINA YANG IN GREY’S ANATOMY
Her famous, “He is not the sun, you are,” line is just one of the many reasons why Cristina is the most supportive TV bestie you can find on Netflix. She lets Meredith embrace her dark stages, but she doesn’t let her dwell in them. That’s a quality we all need in a vina.
BLANCHE DEVERAUX IN GOLDEN GIRLS
There weren’t many older women embracing their sexuality on television in the ’80s, but Blanche was a progressive character who allowed herself to be vulnerable to her partners, and encouraged her friends to do so as well. She also was never afraid to make a fool of herself in order to get Dorothy, Sophia, or Rose out of a jam.
VERONICA FISHER IN SHAMELESS
Let’s face it, the characters on this show are the epitome of dysfunctional. But it’s real. They depict real people with common issues that can happen to anyone in front of the television screen. Veronica is Fiona’s saving grace. She’s a shoulder to cry on and the bodyguard to defend her if necessary. Vinas like Veronica make life easier.
