Which Relationship Was Better On "Grey's Anatomy?"

Which Relationship Was Better On "Grey's Anatomy?"

Because we all know some people were just meant for each other.


We all know there have been countless love affairs on the popular TV show "Grey's Anatomy," but the real question is, who was better for whom?

10. Who was better for Derek?

Meredith or Addison?

Winner: MerDer

Why: Sure, Derek and Addison seemed like the star couple at the beginning of the show. "Derek and Addison, the Shepherds can do anything." But while Addison was having an affair with Derek's best friend, Derek was having an affair with an intern. Even though Meredith is "dark and twisty," you can't beat their post-it marriage.

9. Who was better for Alex?

Izzie or Jo or Jane Doe?

Winner: Alex and Jo

Why: Izzie was the first to steal Alex's heart, but she got cancer and died on the table, which broke him. Then when she finally was dealing with her cancer, she left. And Jane Doe/Rebecca Pope/Ava was just c-r-a-z-y. I mean she found out she was married, she still kept coming back to Alex, and then she peed on his couch and cut herself open. But, Alex and Jo = perfect love story. They started off as actual friends, then fell in love with each other. They are by far my favorite couple.

8. Who was better for April?

Jackson or Matthew?

Winner: April and Jackson

Why: Okay, so it totally seemed like April and Matthew were perfect for each other. They were both saving themselves for marriage (Well, sort of... not really), and that proposal Matthew came up with was pretty spectacular. But, April cannot deny her love for Jackson. How can you not while watching this?

7. Who was better for Callie?

George or Arizona?

Winner: Callie and George

Why: Wait, so why is a man that died seasons ago better for a lesbian? Answer: Have you seen the way Arizona treated Callie the whole time after the plane crash? Also, Callie O'Malley still sounds awesome.

6. Who was better for Richard?

Catherine or Adele?

Winner: Richard and Adele

Why: Was there anything normal about Richard and Catherine? First of all, he was dating his boss's boss. Also, he cheated on his dying wife with her. C'mon Chief!

5. Who was better for Christina?

Preston or Owen?

Winner: Christina and Owen

Why: Christina and Owen may have the most dysfunctional relationship ever. They got married, Christina got pregnant, she got an abortion, Owen kept bringing up the fact that she killed their baby, Owen cheated on her, they got a divorce, then they still kept on hooking up. But the truth is, anything is better than Christina and Burke. Let's just remember what Christina said about Burke:

"Burke was—he took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me, Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again."

4. Who was better for Bailey?

Ben or Eli?

Winner: Bailey and Ben

Why: Sure, Nurse Eli and Bailey's relationship was something we all did in college. It was casual. But we all know how perfect Ben is for Bailey—even across the country.

3. Who was better for Izzie?

Denny or George?

Winner: Izzie and George

Why: Izzie fell in love with a patient and it was a really cute story at first. But once he died and she was still hooking up with him, that was weird. Plus, Izzie and George could have been the cutest love story—best friends fall in love with each other. Too bad they are both gone.

2. Who was better for Teddy?

Henry or Owen?

Winner: Teddy and Henry

Why: Teddy and Owen were best friends, and we all know they were still in love. But we cannot deny the love story of Teddy and Henry. At first it was nothing—she was a doctor trying to help out her patient by marrying him and giving him her insurance. But they became best friends, and then fell in love, and then, of course, he died. What else happens on Grey's Anatomy anyway?

1. Who was better for Mark?

Lexie or Julia?

Winner: Mark and Lexie

Why: Sure, Julia was normal. Julia wanted a future and a family with Mark. Julia was there for Mark. But Mark and Lexie - come on!

I'm still crying over it. I will never get over it. Never.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

Making A Food Instagram Was The Greatest Silver Lining To Come Out Of My COVID-19 Experience

With the crazy and scary times that 2020 has brought, find comfort in the one thing everyone loves: food.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.
