The 6 Sweetest Sister Relationships on TV
If you’ve ever came close to losing a patch of hair over a shirt, then you probably grew up with a sister. Currently, the most popular sisters on TV are the Kardashians (now hitting 10 years on the small screen), but don’t neglect the more pleasant and nicer sisters on TV.
In honor of National Sisters Day, we’ve gathered six well-known sisters who’ve warmed our hearts with their unconditional sisterhood love over the years.
Tia Landry and Tamera Campbell (Sister, Sister)
“A sister is both your mirror and your opposite” couldn’t be more appropriate when explaining the relationship between twins Tia and Tamera. Although identical, Tamera’s boy-crazy, zany character contrasts Tia’s brains and type-A personality. But their differences bring them closer together from the moment they accidentally met at 14 years old through boys, high school, and college. Fingers crossed we see the twins reprise their roles in a Sister, Sister reunion.
DJ and Stephanie Tanner (Fuller House)
The Tanner sisters were iconic in the ’90s, and fans rejoiced to see them return to the famous San Fran house on Netflix’s sequel series to Full House. Between the dance numbers and DJ’s (Candace Cameron-Bure) attempts to be young and hip, the girls have many touching moments overflowing with sisterly advice that you loved from the original (minus the cheesy violin music). Although fans miss the youngest Tanner sister, DJ and Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) make up for it with quirky parenting, ’90s references and a whole lot of hugs.
Hilda and Zelda Spellman (Sabrina The Teenage Witch)
Not everyone can raise a teenage witch; in fact, it required 600-year-old sisters Hilda (Caroline Rhea) and Zelda (Beth Broderick) to take on the task. Whereas Zelda serves as the voice of reason in the house, Hilda is more impulsive and fun. But the two love each other more than anything. As Zelda once said, “She’s my sister. Sure, she may drive me crazy, have obnoxious friends, be a little flaky, loud, overbearing, a complete slob.. what was I trying to say? [About how much you care about Aunt Zelda] Oh yes, I love that woman.”
Alex and Haley Dunphy (Modern Family)
Out of all the sisters on this list, these two fight the most but bring out the best in each other. Alex (Ariel Winter) helps Haley make smart and responsible decisions, while Haley (Sarah Hyland) encourages Alex to loosen up. Contrary to what they might say, the two couldn’t survive their perfectionist mom or dad’s corny jokes without each other. Not to mention when these two sisters team up to scheme, the outcome is hilarious.
Prue, Piper and Phoebe Helliwell (Charmed)
Before Supernatural‘s Sam and Dean were fighting monsters on TV, the Helliwell sisters rid the world from evil. Protecting the innocent and battling demons, warlocks and other evil creatures is a heavy burden to bear, but luckily these sisters have each other. Growing up without a mother or father, the original power three (sorry Paige) relied on each other for help through life troubles, relationships and new villains each week. Fans could feel the sisterhood love, especially when they became their strongest embracing The Power of Three.
Betty and Hilda Suarez (Ugly Betty)
Betty (America Ferrera) and Hilda (Ana Ortiz) might not see eye-to-eye on most things, like Betty’s job at Mode, but blood runs thick for these ladies. Hilda doesn’t hesitate to become aggressive towards anyone who could hurt her family. One of the most memorable Hilda moments is when she rips apart her arch nemesis, Gina Gambarro, on behalf of Betty. This close-knit duo keeps each other in check while taking care of their family, supplying Ugly Betty episodes with plenty of sisterly love.
