Hoes before bros. Uteruses before dudereses. Ovaries before brovaries.
This week we say goodbye to one of the ultimate bestie friendships on television. Through Grey’s Anatomy, Cristina and Meredith redefined and reminded TV audiences what female friendships could be. And with Sandra Oh leaving the show after ten seasons, the Twisted Sisters duo is finally coming to an epic end.
Women get a bad rap for being overly competitive and catty with each other, but in truth, we know from real-life experience that female relationships are incredibly supportive and affirming. He broke up with you? It’s because he’s so insecure standing in the radiance of your greatness. They picked someone else for the position? It’s because they actually found it embarrassing that you could be so good.
Gal pals are essential in life, and womances are magical. So here’s a salute to the TV friendships that do it right.
The season finale of Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursday, May 15 at 9pm E.S.T. on ABC.
