Six TV Sisters We Wish We Had

Sisters have dominated our television screens for much longer than we realize. Before the Kardashians sucked us into their million dollar lives and the Dunphy sisters actually started to get along, we were falling in love with the Halliwells, kicking demon butt daily, and cheering along as Betty and Hilda Suarez supported each other in every way. In our list we chose five silver screen characters we wish we could call our ate (big sister)!

Blair Waldorf, Gossip Girl



Sure, she wouldn’t hesitate to destroy you if you crossed her path but it’s that same fierceness that Ate Blair will protect you with the moment someone breaks your heart. Her scheming mind would take you both on the craziest adventures to the most luxe destinations in the world. Not to mention you would love to raid her closet on the daily. 


Felicity Smoak, Arrow 



Who wouldn’t want an amazing, brilliant superhero for a sister, and she’s a genius to boot! Having Felicity as your sister would mean that you would always get an A on your homework, even if you can’t always spend quality time with her. If it also means getting a glimpse of her sexy boss/ ex-fiancee Oliver Queen, we’re all for it too!


Monica Geller, Friends



We already know that with her big brother Ross, Monica isn’t afraid to step up and take him down if he challenged her. But as a friend to Phoebe and Rachel, Monica does her best to be sweet and motherly, and we’re sure she would be the same if she had any female siblings. Monica’s skills in the kitchen would also mean you would always have good food—if you don’t mind her coming over to clean your apartment in the middle of the night. 


Kimmy Schmidt, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt



Everyone needs a bit of sunshine in their life, and that’s exactly what you’ll get with Kimmy Schmidt as your sister. After happily reuniting with her since emerging from a bunker, having Kimmy as an older sister means always having someone willing to help you out, while not necessarily giving you the most practical life advice. 


Bianca del Rio, RuPaul’s Drag Race



As Adore Delano would attest, Bianca’s all mean on the outside, but soft and sweet on the inside. While you’re sure she’ll call you out when you’re being bratty or rude, she’ll also help you sew a dress when you need it, and encourage you in the face of challenges you’re stumbling on. Not to mention you’ll never have haters ever again, because Bianca would have insulted them out of the room. 


Sunny, The Lonely And Shining Goblin



In the Korean Drama, Sunny initially acted the part of Ji Eun Tak’s older sister, giving her a job at her chicken shop despite the fact that she had no work experience. She mentored Eun Tak without really having to know the specifics of her situation, just because she wanted to. She may have seemed disinterested, but that’s only because she was eating radish cubes, and those things can be super distracting. But the reason why Sunny would make a great sister is because even in her past life, she did what she had to do to defend her brother Kim Shin—even if it meant dying, and betraying the man she loved.
