Being your daughter’s best friend is tenuous ground. Although some swear by the parenting pratice, others firmly attest that the only time they’ll party with their little girl is at her wedding. But while parents go back and forth with regard to what benefits their child best, mom and daughter BFFs are consistently cropping up in pop culture, from reality TV to Hollywood. Perhaps it’s matching ensembles, mother-daughter trips the club, or just bonding between audition takes.

The usual suspects, like Dina Lohan, sometimes not surprisingly double as momagers, seeking to profit off their daughter’s every move. But others, like Drew Barrymore‘s mother Jaid Barrymore, were just along for the partying ride.
