"You've always been like, honest with me, and put me in my place, in the most motherly, kind way," Chyna, 35, tells Williams, 59, who sits in her New York City apartment, cloaked in a Gucci coat, staring intently at her friend.

The close friendship first grew out of gossip. Back in 2020, after years of being mentioned on Williams' show, Chyna decided to set the record straight, sitting down with the then-host for an interview about her life and headline-fueling entanglements with the Kardashians.

"We talk about you a lot on Hot Topics," Williams told her at the time, adding, "You're very controversial," to which Chyna responded, "Thank you."

Off screen, the pair formed a real-life bond after that day. Chyna, who has recently opened up about her own past substance abuse, tells Williams in the clip that she wants to be there for her, just as Williams had been there in the past.

"That's why I love you so much, because even when I was going through my darkest times you never used that against me," she tells Williams. "That's how you know that the love is genuine and it's always going to be there. And I'm going to always be here for you, straight up."
