But Rob wasn't the only one linked to Nikki during 2008. Despite her relationship with Michael, fans began speculating there might be something more than friendship between Kristen and Nikki. The gal pals were frequently spotted holding hands, cuddling, and even kissing (on the cheek!) throughout late 2008. The actresses seemed inseparable, and Nikki even lingered on set to be with Kristen while she wrapped her part in the first film. "I stayed there while [Kristen] was shooting," Nikki said. "She's actually coming back for two more days on Monday, and I'm missing all of my press next week so I can just go be with her, just because, like, that's what life is all about, you know what I mean?" Hmm!
