Erin Andrews, Brooklyn Decker and the Hottest Friends in Sports

0 of 10

    It's a competitive battlefield out there, as wives, girlfriends and risque sports reporters scratch and claw for that extra bit of respect, that additional moment of glistening beauty.

    But after just receiving a Happy Easter note from the trio of Erin Andrews, Brooklyn Decker and Chrissy Teigen, we're beginning to believe they're not all looking to rip each other's hair out.

    Sometimes these contrasting worlds collide. Earth, wind and fire meet to form quite the memorable group, a precisely seductive masterpiece.

    Often referred to as friendships, or a collection of BFFs to those familiar with the abstract lingo scripted by today's youth, these pairs seem ready to take the world by storm one Kodak moment at a time.

    Let's take a look at the hottest friends in sports.

    Cue the teary-eyed tunes.

10. Victoria Beckham and Eva Longoria

1 of 10

    LG commercials preaching friendship, nights out on the town, mutual promotion...these two high-profile celebrities were made for each other as much as they were destined for the spotlight.

    While we certainly miss Eva's sexy impact on the sports world as the former wife of Tony Parker, she seems quite comfortable getting rubbed by her new lovable boo.

    These two have been crewing it with Kate Beckinsale for awhile now, but always manage to surprise us.

9. Kim Kardashian and La La Vasquez

2 of 10

    One's a feisty veteran, the other an indecisive and seemingly manipulative (or just plain simple minded) serial WAGer. But both socialites seem stoked about their thriving friendship.

    La La and Kim seem ready to take that next step and get a place together.

    Marilyn Monroe's skirt blowing in The Seven Year Itch has finally met its match...

    Yeah right.

8. Kate Upton and Damaris Lewis

3 of 10

    Sure, they look cuddly in every memorable Sports Illustrated shot syndicated about the Internet, but that's not what has these two swimsuit models convincing us that their bond is the real thing.

    While loosely known as Mark Sanchez's girlfriend, it's Kate Upton's viral Dougie rendition that had the sports world in a frenzy.

    And Damaris Lewis was right there by her side to enjoy the show.

7. Ciara and Rihanna

4 of 10

    These two pop stars certainly dabbled in the sports world...Ciara with Knickerbocker Amar'e Stoudamire, Rihanna with Dodger Matt Kemp.

    But singing and WAGing aren't the only things they have in common, as both these sexy entrepreneurs have an affinity for the eccentric (and possibly disturbing) wardrobe.

    Just two BFFs being weird together.

6. Irina Shayk and Julie Henderson

5 of 10

    Like a refreshing new couple enjoying their first night on the town, these two bombshell swimsuit models seem exuberant to be knotted at the hip.

    Irina Shayk has made Cristiano Ronaldo an honest man, and Julie Henderson has settled down with quarterback extraordinaire Aaron Rodgers...but both seem to attract wind currents that perfect every photo shoot.

    A match made in heaven.

5. Cheryl Cole and Nadine Coyle

6 of 10

    Former band members (Girls Aloud) and former WAGs (Ashley Cole and Jason Bell respectively)...these two have traveled similar roads and now seem determined to remain lifelong friends.

    While surely a precious tale of BFFs making amends, we're more intrigued by their obvious love for candy.

    The sweet tooth that bonds us all.

4. Carly Cole and Vanessa Perroncel

7 of 10

    Two Coles in a row?! Oh yes.

    While England can hardly be in love with controversial model Vanessa Perroncel, known as Wayne Bridge's baby mama who tarnished team chemistry by having an affair with captain John Terry, the country certainly has one star who is willing to forgive.

    Carly Cole gives off that loving vibe that reeks of a caring nature.

    She is always there to pick up the pieces when needed.

3. Gisele Bundchen and Adriana Lima

8 of 10

    As these two lovebirds soar over their competition with gusto that needs no introduction, they provoke ubiquitous drooling and constant admiration while doing little to help their husbands on the playing field.

    Too close for comfort? No way.

    And when her friend's wing is clipped, Victoria's Secret angel Adriana Lima steps to the challenge in support of her teammate.

    Truly powerful words.

2. Gabrielle Union and Meagan Good

9 of 10

    Athletes? Check. Sex appeal. Check. Questionable ethics? Check. Friends? Duh, winning.

    Such glistening happiness, such worry-free natures...but these two aren't just gentle and caring individuals.

    While Gabrielle Union allegedly stole the heart of Dwyane Wade from his furious ex-wife (homewrecker lawsuit came shortly after), Meagan Good recently made news for getting cuddly with Wiz Khalifa clone Tyga...and we thought she was dating Thomas Jones.

    Some juicy, gossipy hangout sessions for these two rebels.

1. Arianny Celeste and Brittney Palmer

10 of 10

    Forget what society has preached for years, the UFC is far from a vicious playing field featuring aggressive warriors ready to thrash their opponents.

    It's full of beautiful women, often seen capering about the ring thrusting their beauty at the camera.

    These two spark plugs have laid a foundation for the future of ultimate fighting.

    Their memorable card-holding frolics continue to shock, amaze and inspire us.
