However, Kaley Cuoco and Mayim Bialik’s relationship outside of working has been in question a few times before and many would like to know if the two actresses are friends in real life?

Many have claimed the actresses never liked each other

Many outlets alleged that “Cuoco and Bialik’s relationship has become so bad that producers try to keep them apart on the set.”

According to “sources” no one really knows why the two women do not like each other and could not provide evidence as to why they have gotten into fights in the past.
