2023 Daytime Emmy Nominee for Outstanding Talk Series
Best of Celebrity BFFs on “The Jennifer Hudson Show”
July 18, 2023
Everything is better with your best friend by your side — even appearing on a talk show!
Several pairs of real-life best friends have appeared on “The Jennifer Hudson Show,” and between their effortless rapport and their obvious adoration of one another, it’s easy to see why these celebs call each other BFF.
Check out the best moments of best friends on the show — including two of Jennifer Hudson’s closest companions.
Julianne Hough and Nina Dobrev met through their mutual hairstylist 10 years ago and soon became best friends. Explained Nina, “Our hairstylist got sick of being our therapist, and she’s like, ‘You guys need to get together and figure it out.’
“We ended up clicking immediately, and it’s been incredible ever since,” she added.
The duo aren’t just best friends — they also collaborated on a wine label, and they travel all over the world together. “We just love to travel, we love adventure, we love sharing memories,” said Julianne. “That’s what friendship is — creating long-lasting memories and experiences.”
Not only are Katie and Guillermo BFFs, but the entire cast remains super close. The show hasn’t been on the air for four years, but the whole “Scandal” gang still talks and hangs out! Katie said of her “Scandal” family, “We are all so in love.”
“We’re all on a WhatsApp chain,” said Guillermo. “We’re constantly texting each other.”
“We’ve had some ‘Scandal’ reunion kind of parties,” Katie added. “A cast member got married and we all started in the same place. We had another cast member who has a beautiful home in Los Olivos, and we’re currently arranging the next ‘Scandal’ family hangout.”
Identical twins Nikki and Brie Bella are practically inseparable — the sisters and best friends currently live on the same street, but they used to live even closer to each other!
“We used to be across the street, and we realized we prefer that because we’d wave at each other,” said Nikki. The sisters recalled how they would share a glass of wine on their respective porches while their babies slept.
“Now I’m 400 feet to the right, which is okay. It’s a two-minute walk,” said Nikki.
