Jordan Emanuel and Jasmine Ellis Cooper opened up about their friendship.

In the inaugural season, the formerly close-knit best friends began drifting apart. Surprisingly, when cameras resumed rolling for Season 2, Jordan and Jasmine found themselves at odds, with their rift on full display for viewers to witness throughout the undoubtedly eventful season.

In the season premiere, Jasmine hints at her bewilderment over the growing divide. Additionally, other cast members, such as Shanice Henderson, Summer Marie Thomas, and Preston Mitchum, distanced themselves from Jasmine. With that said, there's clearly something significant transpiring within the group.

Reflecting on this, Jasmine shared with Distractify, "I think what's so cool about just doing a show like this is we can't hide anything from you. You know, friendships, they all constantly evolve. And you really see that in real-time. It's not the easiest, but again, living in a house together, we can't avoid each other. We're gonna have to have conversations, we're gonna have to check in with each other."

Regarding her and Jordan's current status, Jasmine added that they both "acknowledge that it has been an interesting year of just adjusting to each other and relearning each other. I went to her birthday party, [and] she came to my baby shower. [There's] still love and support, but it might look a little different today."

During a separate interview, Jordan exclusively told Distractify, "Truthfully, I don't know that I felt uncomfortable more than I thought, 'We're just people going through a hard time right now.' I think every relationship goes through rough patches. And I think that was just one of ours."

"So I never went into the house thinking, 'Oh, God, I have to be around this girl,'" Jordan continued. "No, I think it was more like, 'Yeah, this is uncomfortable. It's a weird situation, but we're going to address it, and it's going to be from a positive place because we're still people who care about each other.'"

She said, "And you'll see that I think now we're in a good place. Are we where we were before? No, but that's OK. That means something else can come. Maybe it'll be better. I don't know. But I think we're in a good place right now."

Summer House: Martha's Vineyard airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo. Stream the next day on Peacock.
