The 29-year-old took to her Instagram Stories to answer various questions from fans, but one was a certain head-turner.
"Do you miss being on Teen Mom yet?" a user asked, to which Chelsea replied by simply sharing a short clip of her shaking her head, "no."
Back in November 2020, the mother of four confirmed she was hanging up her MTV badge for good.
She said at the time: "MTV’s Teen Mom 2 has been a big part of my life for almost 11 years.
"After much thought and discussion with my family and friends, Cole and I have decided that this season will be our last.
"We are forever thankful to MTV and our crew, who are like family to us. We’re parting on the best of terms and will stay in touch long after this…"
She added: "We’re proud to have been able to share our story and are so grateful to the fans who have followed our journey from the beginning…"
A source would later tell The Ashley that Chelsea's exit had plenty to do with her 11-year-old daughter.
The insider told the outlet: "Chelsea was becoming more and more concerned about Aubree being on-camera, now that she’s older.
"She always knew she would leave the show once Aubree reached a certain age. She didn’t want her to go through puberty on-camera and be subjected to hurtful and sometimes creepy comments from viewers."
Chelsea made her TV debut on 16 and Pregnant in 2009 before joining Teen Mom 2 in 2011.
Viewers saw her raise Aubree, butt heads with her baby daddy Adam Lind, and eventually marry Cole DeBoer before welcoming two more kids, Layne and Watson.
After quitting the series, Chelsea would welcome her fourth child, daughter Walker.
The ex TV star's post MTV career has focused on her businesses, including Aubree Says and Belle & Rae Co.
However, Chelsea and Cole have also run into some trouble, as they are currently being sued by consulting company Envy for $3 million for allegedly withholding money made from social media promotions.
Even with the unresolved lawsuit, Chelsea remains one of the most popular stars from the MTV series, although, she receives plenty of hate even after quitting.
While speaking to Us Weekly, Chelsea shared why she doesn’t respond to her critics online.
The ex TV personality said: “You shouldn’t [reply] because it’s bull crap.
“Sometimes it’s nice to put people in their place if they’re saying something mean and you just want to say something back … but it’s always best to take the high road.”
Chelsea added that she has received “so much” criticism from strangers, sharing: “We’re on a show called Teen Mom. We’ve heard it all.”
