Archie has always seemed a little off-centaur, to me.
Sorry, I'm channeling my Inner Reggie, today.
In a way, the most successful archie Rip-Off is Japan's Urusei Yatsura.
Urusei Yatsura (うる星やつら?) is a comedic manga series written and illustrated by Rumiko Takahashi and serialized in Weekly Shōnen Sunday from 1978 to 1987. Its 374 individual chapters were published in 34 tankōbon volumes. It is the story of Ataru Moroboshi, and the alien Lum, who believes she is Ataru's wife after he accidentally proposes to her. The series makes heavy use of Japanese mythology, culture and puns. The series was adapted into an anime TV series produced by Kitty Films and broadcast on Fuji Television affiliates from 1981 to 1986 with 195 episodes. Eleven OVAs and six theatrical movies followed, and the series was released on VHS, Laserdisc, DVD, and Blu-ray Disc in Japan.
All the elements of the Archie Romantic Triangle are there, including Ataru Moroboshi (Girl Crazy Teen/Archie), LUM Invader as the universal adored hottie (Veronica), Shinobu Miyake (Girl Next Door/Betty), & Shutaro Mendou, as Reggie.
Yes.. "Pussycats Plus One" from Sabrina vol 2 #17 (the 90s sitcom-inspired version drawn by Dan DeCarlo). It's a really fun four-part story. Also, "Model Behavior" from Sabrina vol 3 #67 (the manga version). I also recall a one page gag, drawn by Holly G!, in which Salem meets the Pussycats (available in the Magic of Sabrina TPB), and in Little Archie's Power Pets, Salem records a video with them at the end of part 2. Hope this helps!

The Sabrina collection, with original De Carlo material, is pushed back until 2017, if it sees press at all.

I liked Hot Stuff.
But, you couldn't publish that innocent kids' comic today!
The Fundys would accuse you of promoting Satanism, & Fox News would Gang-F*ck you.
Even the GOP Presidential Clown Car would sing in the choir of your ruination.
All over a comic as tame as milk.
These mood swings scare me, quite frankly.
Do not try to tough this out on your own!
You need help.
Start at school.
Ask your guidance councilor about community mental health.
If you have access to a MD, talk to your doctor.
A spiritual leader (Reverend, Priest, etc) may help.
Remember : carefully phrase your request. Word it in advance, so they don't over-react.
After all, Adults + Authority = Jerk.
