The late actress Bette Davis once said, "I do not regret one professional enemy I have made. Any actor who doesn't dare to make an enemy should get out of the business." It seems Davis -- who counted one-time co-star Miriam Hopkins as her life-long arch-nemesis -- was on to something.

(Plus a little professional advice to help them settle their disputes, from relationship expert Susan Shapiro Barash, author of 'Toxic Friends," and "Tripping the Prom Queen.')
