The Young and the Restless spoilers say that their relationship hasn’t always been perfect, but there certainly has been as many good days as there have been bad.

Both actresses opened up about their on-screen and off-screen friendship in a special interview with Soap Opera Digest. Here’s what they have to say!

When asked what draws Chelsea and Chloe together as friends, Melissa said, “They’ve always had a great connection. They’re very Lucy and Ethel, very yin and yang. They get each other into trouble, they get each other out of trouble. They give each other good advice and they’ll call each other out for any nonsense and I think that’s what real friends do,” while Elizabeth added, “They also have the same drive and zest for life. They’ve worked really hard to get where they are and have made mistakes along the way. They’re really supportive of each other and just truly understand.”
When asked who is the more ‘loyal’ friend, Melissa answered, “They also have the same drive and zest for life. They’ve worked really hard to get where they are and have made mistakes along the way. They’re really supportive of each other and just truly understand.”
Elizabeth added, “I also say they’re equally loyal. Chloe has stuck with Chelsea through all of the Adam drama and Chelsea has been able to let go of the times Chloe has tried to kill Adam.”

Both ladies also added that becoming mothers has certainly gotten them closer, off-screen. Elizabeth explained, ““I learned very quickly when I was pregnant, there was this whole tribe of women who were there for me. It was like this secret little club that I never knew about and I was so happy to be a part of it. Missy and I had gone through the same struggles of getting pregnant so when she was expecting, I tried to support her the best way I possibly could. I was so excited for her to join this club because I knew it would be very magical for her.”
Melissa added, “From day one of my pregnancy, Lizzie was so helpful. She became a mom a year-and-a-half before me, and I had confided in her about the frustrations of my fertility problems, so she was one of the first people I told when I found out I was pregnant. Right away, she sent me a 10-page email of, ‘This is what you need to get. This is a great stroller. This is the best carrier.’ She gave me her car seat after JoJo grew out of it and brought over diapers the week that my son was born. She has always been so generous with her help and advice.”
