Posted: Updated: 05/15/2012 5:50 pm

Hollywood wives might not have the best reputation (thanks, "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills") but that doesn't mean that all celebrity wives are so ridiculous.

In fact, some stars have stuck to their wedding vows and proved themselves to be amazing wives -- and moms -- over the years. Through sickness and health, these ladies have stuck by their husbands. In their honor, we've drawn up a list of some of the most dedicated and supportive star spouses.

Click through the slideshow below to see some admirable Hollywood ladies and tell us your opinion: Who is the best celebrity wife?

  • Khloe Kardashian Odom

    No one adores NBA player Lamar Odom more than his <a href="http://www.eonline.com/news/khloeacute_kardashian_lamar_odom_are/146292" target="_hplink">wife of two years</a>, reality-TV star Khloe Kardashian Odom. Though the pair knew each other <a href="http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/khloe-kardashian-my-tips-for-a-happy-marriage-2012103" target="_hplink">for just 32 days</a> before they got hitched, Kardashian Odom has remained dedicated to her husband, <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/18/khloe-kardashian-on-active-sex-life_n_1286761.html" target="_hplink">moving halfway across the country</a> -- from Los Angeles to Dallas -- after Odom was traded from the Los Angeles Lakers to the Dallas Mavericks. Kardashian Odom has always prioritized her husband and marriage first. "I'm a modern girl, but you should put your husband first," she <a href="http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20591901,00.html" target="_hplink">told <em>People</em> in May.</a> "I like to think divorce is not an option." And did we mention that she once created a <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/29/khloe-kardashian-lamar-od_n_1310696.html" target="_hplink">sex den </a>for her hubby?

  • Mariah Carey

    When Nick Cannon <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/04/mariah-carey-reveals-nick-cannon-has-kidney-failure_n_1183032.html" target="_hplink">fell dangerously ill</a> in December 2011 while vacationing in Aspen, Colorado, his wife, Mariah Carey, was right there for him. The singer nursed her husband <a href="http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20198292,00.html" target="_hplink">of three years</a> back to health after the scare, <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/04/mariah-carey-reveals-nick-cannon-has-kidney-failure_n_1183032.html" target="_hplink">tweeting photos of the couple</a> at the hospital. In March, Cannon told "Access Hollywood" that Carey was the main reason why he recovered so quickly. "She knows every home remedy. She's great in the kitchen," <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/03/07/nick-cannon-lupus_n_1327006.html" target="_hplink">Cannon said.</a>

  • Gwyneth Paltrow

    Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin may rarely be seen in public together, but that doesn't mean that Paltrow isn't a devoted partner to her musician husband. In the February 2011 issue of <em>Harper's Bazaar</em>, the 39-year-old actress and mother of two <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/01/gwyneth-paltrow-marriage-_n_1247897.html" target="_hplink">admitted that she's had to make sacrifices</a> for her marriage -- but she doesn't mind. "I want to maintain my marriage and my family, so I have to be here when he comes home," Paltrow<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/01/gwyneth-paltrow-marriage-_n_1247897.html" target="_hplink"> told the magazine.</a> "All I can do is my best, and I can do only what works for me and my family." And it seems that Paltrow is a stellar wife: Martin has compared his <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/01/gwyneth-paltrow-marriage-_n_1247897.html" target="_hplink">eight-year marriage</a> to <a href="http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2049650/Chris-Martin-Being-married-Gwyneth-Paltrow-like-winning-lottery.html" target="_hplink">"winning the lottery." </a>

  • Jennifer Garner

    Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have been married <a href="http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,1078501,00.html" target="_hplink">for more than six years</a>, and Affleck still worships the ground the actress walks on. Over Mother's Day weekend this year, Affleck <a href="http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20594947,00.html" target="_hplink">called his wife and mother-of-three</a> "an incredible, spectacular, world-class mom" on Facebook. Garner has made it apparent that she's dedicated to her husband by <a href="http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20259975,00.html" target="_hplink">supporting him at various humanitarian events</a>. "Honestly, I would do anything for that man, because I know it's not taken for granted," she told<em><a href="http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20553139,00.html" target="_hplink"> InStyle</a></em> in December 2011.

  • Nicole Kidman

    Nicole Kidman helped nurse husband Keith Urban back to health after Urban underwent throat surgery to <a href="http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/01/26/us-keithurban-idUSTRE80P07120120126" target="_hplink">repair his damaged vocal cords</a> in November 2011. Kidman, who has been <a href="http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,1149081,00.html" target="_hplink">married to Urban for six years</a>, <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/04/17/nicole-kidman-keith-urban-marriage_n_1432091.html" target="_hplink">told <em>W</em> in April </a>that the three weeks of silence actually strengthened her marriage and made the pair closer. And that's not the first time that Kidman has stood by her husband's side: When the couple were still newlyweds in 2006, Urban <a href="http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-body/news/keith-urban-thought-rehab-would-destroy-nicole-kidman-marriage-20102911" target="_hplink">checked into rehab</a> for drug and alcohol addiction and Kidman stuck around and supported him through it. He told <a href="http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-body/news/keith-urban-thought-rehab-would-destroy-nicole-kidman-marriage-20102911" target="_hplink">Oprah Winfrey in 2010:</a> "I look back now and realize Nic has taught me so much and brought so much into my life and opened my eyes in so many ways ... [This is] the best place I've ever been."
