#WomanCrushWednesday: My Ultimate TV Girl Crushes

Girl crushes are the sincerest form of flattery. It means I'd either like to be you or I just want to be your best friend. I don't often have real life girl crushes, but I do frequently have TV girls crushes (maybe it's because I spend most of my time watching TV...)

Sloan, Entourage

E messes this one up so many times on Entourage, ugh!! Sloan is the best thing that ever happened to him - smart, successful, funny and relaxed enough to hang out with the lovably idiotic Entourage gang. The only recurring female character on Entourage, I love the logical female touch that Sloan brings to the otherwise ridiculous antics of Vinny and the boys.

Veronica Mars

A teenage private investigator might sound ridiculous, but not after you meet Veronica Mars. She's sharp and snarky, never without the wittiest comeback. I always identify with her staunchly independent nature, and she's definitely the best friend I'd like to have making sarcastic comments by my side.

Joan, Mad Men

Maybe not the best person to have a girl crush on, but for some reason, I really like Joan Holloway. She's bold, she's sassy, and in the age of the housewife, she's a nice contrast, running the workplace with some manipulation and office politics. Joan is progressively in touch with her femininity, making both men and women in the office respect her.

Ilana, Broad City

Obviously either Abbi or Ilana from Broad City had to make the list. I think I identify more with Abbi, but I envy Ilana, so I'll choose her as my girl crush. It's her outfits combined with her nonchalant attitude that make me want to be more like her. For Ilana, nothing is too absurd as long as it's fun, and I would love a little of that personality to rub off on me.

Kristin Wiig, SNL

I cannot and will not choose a favorite Kristin Wiig moment on SNL. Paula Deen, Target Lady, Doonese, Lana Del Ray....the list goes on and on. She's been a part of several of the most iconic SNL sketches, and her time on the show is, in my opinion, comparable to Will Ferrell's. Her uncanny ability to make viewers uncomfortable enough that they have to laugh makes her one of the SNL greats.

Former Fangirl ACTUALLY Dates Her Celebrity Crush!
It's no secret that I have a MAJOR celebrity crush on Matthew Gray Gubler. He's creative, he's outgoing, he's funny - he's basically everything I want in a guy. But at the same time, I've NEVER actually considered the possibility of us dating in real life before. Let's be real - celebrities don't date their fans. Especially their hardcore ones, right? Well, if you ask 'The Fosters' star Jake T. Austin, his answer might surprise you. Jake recently shared this intimate picture on Instagram - a candid shot of him kissing his new girlfriend, Danielle. But instead of meeting her via Tinder or at some fancy Hollywood soiree, they actually met on Twitter - as before they were dating, Danielle was a 'Wizards of Waverly Place' superfan who tweeted at him with no response since 2009. That's six whole years, you guys. Some of the tweets include the following: - "Me and @jaketaustin are getting married. Shhh =x he just doesn't know it yet ;) yes I know I'm a freak :D." - "I wanna meet @jaketaustin so badly." - "Your smile is so cute @jaketaustin.." And then there's my personal favorite: I would probably be mortified if my future celebrity boyfriend read any such tweets from me. However, they eventually got to meet in real life, which was then followed by him following her back(!) on Twitter, and the rest, they say, is history. Since the press caught onto their bizarre meeting story, Jake's been the subject of quite a few interviews, but during one with the Daily News, he assures that situations like theirs aren't as bizarre as they seem: "We're young and having fun just getting to know each other. It doesn't matter how you meet someone - on set, in a coffee shop, at school, or in the business. Sometimes you connect with people at the right moment, and you just click." So what do you guys think? Have Danielle and Jake given you some hope? Let me know in the comments below, and if you guys need me, I'll be on spamming all of Matthew Gray Gubler's social media pages in a camping tent outside his house.
