Remember back in Season 5 of “Teen Mom 2,” when Chelsea and her besties took a road trip to see country superstar Dierks Bentley perform — and they ended up hanging out with him after the show? Chels tried to keep her cool, but she totally freaked out when she met the down-”Home” singer (uh, who could blame her?), and over a year later, Dierks is singing her praises. Swoon!
This morning, the cute crooner appeared on the “Bobby Bones Show” to promote his new album, Riser, and Chelsea’s name came up. “She’s a great girl and she couldn’t be nicer,” Dierks said when the DJs asked him to dish some dirt. Bobby’s co-host, Lunchbox, was quick to join in on the convo, revealing that he’s a loyal follower of Miss Houska and her MTV co-stars. “I watch every episode!” Lunchbox squealed. “I love the show.”
Dierks then sent out a personal message to the young mother, saying, “Chelsea, if you’re out there listening, thanks for being a fan.” Later, she gleefully replied to Lunchbox’s Twitter shout-out about the discussion with Dierks. Could an RT lead to an IRL love connection? Hmm, not if little Aubree has anything to say about it…
