The 67-year-old made a guest appearance on the recent episode of the talk show where she discussed her relationship with the Kardashian family.

Since their mothers were good friends, the Jenner sisters became friends with the TV host's daughter, Cassidy Gifford.


According to the "Today" show host, she and Kris Jenner have been friends for a long time and their relationship was so intimate that Gifford became the godmother of Kendall and Kylie.

However, the "Love Never Fails" singer moved away when the sisters were still young and did not have much impact on their lives as children.


But the distance between them didn't stop the host of "Kathie Lee & Hoda" show from loving her goddaughters and claimed that the girls were a part of her life as she has known their mother, Kris since she was in her 20s.

When the show's host, Andy Cohen asked what advice the godmother would give the sisters. The "Heart Of A Woman" singer replied that she would tell Kendall and Kris to remain close to God and to always be real to themselves.


The mother-of-two and the famous family's relationship began when the two mothers met during a Bible study after they moved to L.A. for the first time.

Their friendship grew stronger after the "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star supported Gifford during the period she suffered two miscarriages while trying to have a baby.


Their close friendship also influenced the "God Who Sees" artist's relationship with Caitlyn Jenner, who was once married to Kris.

Since their mothers were good friends, the Jenner sisters became friends with the TV host's daughter, Cassidy Gifford, and they were there to support the 27-year-old during her big moments such as the premiere of her horror movie, "The Gallows" in 2015.


Billionaire, Kylie Jenner uploaded an adorable picture of herself and the star of the night at the premiere on Instagram. The photo showed the "Life Of Kylie" star in a black crop top paired with matching trousers plus a white jacket and dark shades to complete the chic look.

By her side was Cassidy wearing a form-fitting white crop top over a matching white skirt paired with a cute black clutch. The "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star captioned the post with a sweet message, where she implored her fans to support her godsister's movie.
