Ah, middle school. Those awkward years where you're not a kid anymore but you're not an adult (or even a teenager most of the time) yet. There's a ton of embarrassing moments obvi, but ofc it's not ALL bad. You make some amaze friends but then not everyone will be nice to you. Some may be downright mean and rude. Like these two.
Remember Kate and Claire from Lizzie McGuire? Kate was Lizzie's BFF...until something happened after summer camp.
Kate was the most popular girl at school and in typical Regina George fashion, she teased Lizzie and did whatever she could to make her life miserable. And believe it or not, her BFF Claire is actually even more mean.
Where are they now?

First, we have Kate Sanders, portrayed by Ashlie Brillault.
While Ashlie played the queen of mean on Lizzie McGuire, in real life she's a total sweetheart.

After the show, the now 28-year-old focused more on her education. She received a B.A. in Political Science and Government from Cal State Long Beach, graduating with a 3.5 GPA. She def hit those books!

On top of that, she attended Grad School at the Strum College of Law at the University of Denver and got a JD! What in? Constitutional Rights and Remedies.

While in school, it appears that she didn't do any acting on the side, instead working as a server at places like TGI Fridays in Southern California. She's had jobs from being a Denver-based state public defender for Colorado to a University of Denver student attorney. According to IMDB, she's a criminal defense attorney and she passed the bar exam in Cali as well. She has her own family, having dated her now husband Joe for 11 years and afterwards welcoming a daughter this February. Awww! TOO. Cute.

Aaaaand she volunteers for the ACLU in LA. She also helps the Ronald McDonald House, Long Beach Child Cancer Center, speaks with the DARE program for kids to prevent drug use and is on the Kids with a Cause board. So it turns out she's seems like the nicest person like...ever!
Well, what about Claire? Is she still acting?
It looks like Claire still has the acting bug. The LA-born, 29-year-old Davida Williams has acted for years, appearing on such classics as The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air at a young age. She graduated high school at 15 and went to Mount St. Mary's College in Brentwood, Calif. Nothing better than smart ladies!

She had a recurring role as Jade Taylor on episodes of the soap opera, As The World Turns during the 2008-2009 season and has appeared in episodes of shows like 90210, Revenge, and CollegeHumor Originals. Her latest acting gigs include the 2014 short, Locked In, and the 2015 TV movie, Any Tom, Dick, or Harry, which she co-executive produced! She even wrote a short this year titled, Merry Little Christmas as well. #GirlBoss.

While promoting the film, Teenage Bank Heist in a 2012 interview with TVMegaSite.net, Davida shared some thoughts about her Lizzie past, saying, "Lizzie Mcguire opened a lot of doors for me. Going into it, I don't think anyone expected it to be as successful as it was. Hilary [Duff] was the first Disney queen in my opinion. I think it's great that Claire was an iconic Disney character."

Trust us, no one will ever forget the iconic duo of Kate and Claire. Good to know they're not like they're TV counterparts. At. All.
