If you're a Teen Mom 2 fan who spends any time at all on social media, then you're probably aware that new rumors about the cast pop about at the rate of about a dozen every hour or so.
As a result, we've pretty much heard it all over the years.
And yet somehow, we still didn't see this one coming.
As you may know, Kailyn Lowry and Leah Messer are close friends -- so perhaps it was inevitable that fans would eventually claim they're more than just friends. Is it a stupid rumor?
And yet, those who support claim say there's plenty of proof.
Take a look:
Leah & Kail
The friends recently traveled to Costa Rica together. Leah posted this pic from the trip, along with a caption reading, "My girl bad, badder than yours."
Kailyn and Leah have posted plenty of selfies together in the past. But for some reason, the Costa Rica pics have prompted endless rumors.
Perhaps it's the obvious affection these two have for each other. But for whatever reason, Messer and Lowry's vacation pics have fans convinced their more than friends.
Up Close and Personal
First, fans wanted Kail and Leah to star in their own spinoff. Now, it seems they want these two to get married.
Clearly, these two had a blast in Costa Rica. And they seem to be in no hurry to shut down rumors about the nature of their relationship.
Sure, they might occasionally find it annoying that some people believe two grown women can't just be platonic friends. But fortunately, most of the comments have run toward the hilarious/complimentary end of the spectrum.
“Y’all could have six kids — three girls, three boys — and never worry about baby drama again. Wife her!” one fan wrote on Leah's page.
“Probably my favorite Teen Mom couple ever,” another follower echoed.
A Reasonable Suggestion
“I feel like y’all have the worst luck with men and should just start dating each other,” yet another fan observed.
Voices of Reason
Unfortunately, some folks (who are probably completely correct in their assessment of the situation) had to come along and rain on the 'shippers parade.
Speaking the Sad Truth
"So cute! Unfortunately, I can already see the backlash over these pictures … when it’s really just two friends having fun! That’s it,” a fan commented on one of Kail's pics.
“Happy to see them relaxing and having fun, but they’re just friends, y’all!” another concurred.
It's not hard to see why fans would be so eager to see Leah and Kail find happiness with each other. After all, they've both had horrendous luck with men.
Leah just got out of a very rocky relationship with Jason Jordan, and it looks like she dodged a bullet by ending the relationship.
Kail, meanwhile, has had no end of trouble with her third baby daddy, Chris Lopez.
Repeating the Same Mistakes?
To make matters worse, it looks as though Kail and Leah are both being drawn back in by their exes -- Leah by Jeremy Calvert, Kail by Chris Lopez.
Now, these aren't necessarily bad guys, but Kail and Leah have been down these roads before -- and fans would like to see them try something new.
Just a Thought
Like each other, for example ...
Yes, it'll probably never happen -- but it would make for one hell of a spinoff!
