    Meredith Blake And Chessy From "The Parent Trap" Are Best Friends IRL, And I Can't Stop Smiling

    "22 years ago we had no idea we were about to meet our soulmate."

    If you're like me, you've been Parent Trap-obsessed since 1998...

    ...which means the names Meredith Blake and Chessy MEAN SOMETHING to you. After all, they're two of the most iconic characters in the movie.

    One of them threatened to ship those brats to Switzerland and the other could tell twins apart BETTER THAN THEIR DAMN PARENTS.

    Well, I'm thrilled to report that in 2019, actors Elaine Hendrix (Meredith) and Lisa Ann Walter (Chessy) are BEST FRIENDS. Here they are en route to the Tony Awards together just last week!

    My heart! They've been BFFs for 20 years!

    I mean, look how beautiful this friendship is!!!

    This is a friendship that has spanned decades!

    And even though their characters clearly didn't get along in the movie (*ahem Meredith Blake bought a bell to summon Chessy!!! ahem*), it warms my heart to see that this film gifted them a lifelong friendship.

    As Elaine put it, "22 years ago we had no idea we were about to meet our soulmate."

    I'm extremely emotional!

    Another thing they have in common? They love sharing a good Parent Trap meme!

    Elaine's Parent Trap tweets are pure gold and I highly recommend giving her a follow.

    We love nostalgia content!

    Anyway, my point is, even though Meredith Blake and NICKY didn't quite work out, I'm thrilled to report that Meredith and Chessy DID. THE END.
