Kailyn Lowry is pretty clear with regard to her feelings toward the other members of the Teen Mom 2 cast.
For example, we know that Lowry is close friends with Leah Messer, and is decidedly not a fan of Jenelle Evans.
Similarly, Kail keeps her distance from Briana DeJesus, owing largely to the fact that Bri dated Kail's ex-husband, Javi Marroquin.
But when it comes to Kail and Chelsea Houska, the picture is a little blurrier.
Lowry and Houska used to be close friends, but now they have very little contact with one another.
And fans think that's no accident.
Here's what we know about the situation:
At one point, Kail and Chelsea were far more than just co-workers who got along -- they were close friends.
We suppose that's no great surprise. After all, other than their fellow castmates, few people can relate to what the ladies of the Teen Mom universe have experienced over the course of the past decade.
Odd Woman Out
Which is one of the reasons they've all formed pretty close bonds over the years. Well, all of them except for Jenelle Evans ...
The Latest Besties
These days, Kail and Leah are the closest friends on the cast, but there was a time when Lowry appeared to be just as tight with Chelsea.
So What Happened?
These days, however, that's not the case -- and fans are desperate to know why Kail and Chelsea don't hang out anymore.
Kail is one of the hosts of the popular Coffee Convos podcast, and her recent interview with longtime friend Becky Hayter raised some eyebrows.
Apparently, the way that Kail and Becky discussed Chelsea in the past tense led many to the conclusion that Lowry and Houska had cut ties.
“So I just need to know if [Kailyn Lowry] is still close with [Chelsea Houska],” one fan tweeted.
“Because the podcast with [Becky Hayter] so made it sound like they aren’t and I don’t know why but that makes me so sad if it’s true #teenmom2,” she continued.
Clearing the Air
Fortunately, that fan didn't have to search for answers for very long, as Kail was quick to respond to her query.
Setting the Record Straight
“We are still friends!!” Lowry replied to the concerned follower.
Chelsea Chimes In
Chelsea echoed Kail's sentiment, tweeting that she's as close to her TM2 family as ever -- she's just more of a homebody these days.
Keeping a Lower Profile
“I think people look wayyy too much into it! I used to go out and be social during reunions and now I tend to stay in and keep to myself!" Chelsea said, clarifying why she doesn't party with the rest of the cast after reunion tapings.
Houska the Hermit
"I still love these ladies … I’ve just become a hermit,” Houska joked.
Kail revealed that she's essentially in the same boat, tweeting, “Same, I think we are all so drained and I personally don’t like going to bars or anything. But we all still love each other!”
Maybe Someday ...
"Plus Kail and Leah are 2 single ladies and living their best life!" Houska added. "I love watching their adventures and maybe if I get some balls I will join them sometime (but I’m NOT skydiving or any other crazy s--t you guys do)"
A More Subdued Outing ...
"We can take it down a notch & go get a massage on a beach somewhere," Lowry offered.
Teen Mom 2 and its predecessor are different from other reality shows in that the cast members all live in different parts of the country.
So Far, Yet So Close
But despite the fact that Kail is in Delaware and Chelsea in South Dakota, it sounds as though these two are as close as ever.
Making It Work
As we get older, it can become to maintain a friendship with someone who lives next door. So the fact that Kail and Chelsea still put in the effort is a testament to their mutual affection.
