"I come from strong parents and we've always had honest conversations," the former First Lady of Empowerment Temple A.M.E. Church said of not being afraid to say exactly what she means. "If you're somebody's real good girlfriend, you got to have an honest conversation and you have to call them out."

Despite there always being plenty of drama on the franchise, the ladies have maintained a mutual respect for each other and have begun to understand how they each operate. "We add a lot of humor to the drama so it's not that bad. But it is like a tap dance," Bryant dished.

Although they are constantly at each other's throats, the love between the two is evident. "If she needs me or I need her, we have each other's backs," Bryant said of their years-long friendship. "She's been there for me and with my kids so it's just like real auntie fun."
