Whether they’re playing Cheryl Blossom and Toni Topaz or they’re hanging out off-set, Madelaine Petsch and Vanessa Morgan are BFF goals. The Riverdale co-stars always have each other’s backs and in an EXCLUSIVE interview with HollywoodLife, Madelaine revealed that it’s Vanessa she has truly missed during these months quarantine and away from the set.
“My better half! I miss Vanessa!” the stunning redhead gushed chatting to HL. “We’re able to do FaceTime and talk on about five different platforms at once. We’re always DMing and texting, it’s just constant, but it’s weird to be apart from her. I’m used to seeing her every day 10 months of the year!”
Madelaine’s comments came just days before Vanessa revealed she was expecting her first child and her husband, Michael Kopech filed for divorce after six months of marriage. Like the incredible friend she is, Madelaine was quick to stick up for her bestie who was grossly flooded with rude comments after news broke. “Honestly, if I see one more comment like this I’ll lose it,” the Riverdale star fired back at a troll. “Vanessa is a beautiful mother to be and the hate and disrespect I’m seeing on this post about her bringing a new life into this world is disgusting.”
It seemed like Madelaine tapped into some of the Cheryl Blossom sass that she also told HL she’s been missing while being in quarantine! “I miss that fire. I need it, I want it back!” she admitted. However, during the break, she has taken on many new hobbies, like tie dying and even perfecting an at-home gel manicure.
At the same time, Madelaine partnered with AbbVie, the maker of Lo Loestrin® Fe, to empower women to research their birth control options and encourages honest and open conversations with their healthcare providers to get informed. “It’s not right for everyone, but it can be right for certain people, and I think starting that conversation is the first step,” Madelaine explained. “Always talk to your healthcare provider and your OBGYN about the options available to you and just start the conversation.”
