Hot Stuff: Why Pia Wurtzbach is So Sure that #OliPia Can Withstand the Test of Distance

With Miss USA 2015 Olivia Jordan turning over her crown to the next Miss USA very soon (the pageant is happening on June 5, BTW), Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach feels major sepanx over the end of Olivia's reign. But wait a minute: What does that word mean (in case you don't know)? Pia explained the meaning of sepanx during her Facebook live chat at the Miss Universe page last night:

Why is Pia feeling sentimental about Olivia "packing her bags"? Simply because they will become far apart once their respective reigns will end. Yet, she says her friendship with Olivia goes beyond the Miss Universe competition (where Olivia placed 2nd runner up). Even after the competition, Pia and Olivia, besides being apartment mates, have also grown to become genuinely close friends.

For starters, Olivia would call Pia her bae:


And they would bond together during charity events, even share candid moments behind-the-scenes while working. If you really enjoy working together, you get to enjoy being goofy together at the same time:

They are practically inseparable (hence the sepanx remark), and they even have their own hashtag, known over the internet as #OliPia. Yes, there are netizens who do ship their friendship pairing:


#OliPia would even blow a few flying kisses to their fans and supporters:


Valentine kisses from me & Olivia!! ?????? @theoliviajordan @missusa @missuniverse

The most important part of their friendship? They are there for one another when needed. In fact, both are just a text message (or a chat) away. Pia narrates a particular experience during her Facebook live chat, where she texted Olivia to vent out and visit her place:
