  • I mean, obviously Carrie Bradshaw needs to be on this list. I don't need to explain it. You should already know. If you don't, you can borrow my Sex and the City DVDs and take a week off of work and engulf yourself in the pleasure.

  • Liz Lemon, portrayed to perfection by Tina Fey on 30 Rock, has had her share of losers. However, she manages to hold down a big job and remains hilarious in the process. If I could be anyone in the world, I guess it would be her.

  • Lorelai and Rory on Gilmore Girls were the ultimate single girl team. While they dealt with plenty of boy drama, their biggest commitment was to each other. An inspiration for single mothers everywhere, Lorelai is by far one of the most fiercely independent women to grace the small screen.

  • Elaine Benes, the lone chica on Seinfeld, was always the wittiest of the bunch. Chic, professional and full of class, Elaine was a true boss b*tch.

  • Rachel Green on Friends is my all time favorite TV character. While she spent a lot of the show in a relationship with Ross, her most major moments occurred when she was unattached. No one else did it like her.

  • Bethenny is married with a toddler now, but she was the quintessential single girl. On the Real Housewives franchise as well as her eponymous reality show, she exhibited complete independence and single gal swag.

  • Jenny Humphrey, resident youngster/diva/tramp on Gossip Girl, got involved with the wrong dudes. Thus, she found herself single most of the time. And she was absolutely nuts. I know this is kind of a weird choice, but she is truly one of my favorite single girls. Her brash Brooklyn attitude just OWNED.

  • Abby Lee Miller, protagonist of Dance Moms, is a genius. There's no other way around it. I mean, this woman is ridiculous and so perfect. She does not need a man.

  • Candice Bergen starred as Murphy Brown on the eponymous show. She fought to be one of the boys -- and succeeded. Single, in her 40s and effortlessly glamorous, Murphy Brown set the standard for women in the office.
