    The hosts joked about how refreshing it was that they met like the rest of us did in the early aughts — by asking for each other's AIM usernames.

    And although they were friends through the filming of their hit show, Jennette said things have actually changed.

    "So, this thing happens in your 20s. You know what I'm gonna say. Your friendships when you're 20 years old — you're like, 'These are the friends that will be on my deathbed. We'll be playing bingo, clenching each other's hands, and watching Jeopardy!'"

    "That shifts," she continued. "Sometimes, you can't even really make sense of it. You're just like, 'Oh wow, I haven't talked to that person in months.'"

    "I mean, I love her to pieces, but we're just not as close as we used to be," Jennette continued.

    "It's totally a naturally aging [thing]," she added.

    Last week, Miranda did break her silence surrounding the allegations Jennette made regarding her experience on iCarly. Jennette said an executive gave her an unsolicited shoulder massage and encouraged her to drink alcohol when she was underage, among other things.

    "When you’re young, you’re so in your own head," Miranda told the New York Times. “You can’t imagine that people around you are having much harder struggles. You don’t expect things like that from the person in the room who’s making everyone laugh."

    So, while it seems like there's nothing but civility and support, we can kind of conclude they're just not on the Carly-Sam level we'd expect.
