Well, we’re so glad she did because now we get to learn about their special relationship with each other.
"Briana is super cool and really down to earth. She never demanded any special treatment or anything like that on set. Kaley and Briana could not have been nicer. They are incredibly close and supportive of one another. You can tell they are best friends."
"I've been waiting for something like this for so long for her. She's deserved this her whole life and she's always put herself on the back burner for everyone else…There's no one I love more in the world. My sister and I are closer than close. I want this for her probably more than she maybe wants it."
If you guessed that Briana had an easy time getting to this point though, you are wrong. There’s no riding Kaley’s koattails over here! Briana said:
"I am incredibly lucky to have [Kaley] and to have her support and to have been around the business for a long time. So I have that on my side, absolutely. But on the other side, I do have…more pressure on me. I think people expect a little bit more because of that, which is a great thing because it keeps me driven. But it also can be a little harder sometimes when people are a little extra critical in certain cases… It was such a beautiful thing having [Kaley] there with me and truly mentoring me. My parents have been incredibly supportive of my sister and my career, and to have all of them there and her supporting me — it was amazing. It was truly one of the best moments of my life."
It seems like Briana is really having a ball on the show too! She posted a picture on Friday of Team Xtina working out together (below).
We’re sending lots of positivity her way! May the best singer win!
