AceShowbiz - Meghan McCain revealed that Erika Jayne is one of her good friends. When gushing over their friendship, the former co-host of "The View" claimed that she and the reality star "bond over being hated."
The 37-year-old made the revelation when appearing in the Wednesday, May 18 episode of Stitcher's "Reality with the King" podcast. "She knows what it feels like to have the world feel you're, whatever - crazy dismissive and things," she said of the Bravo personality.
"I adore her. Like I said, she has such a good heart. I knew s**t was coming down with her before the press did; she was candid with me. We're real friends," the daughter of the late Senator John McCain added. "I will ride for her forever."
During the interview, Meghan also weighed in on Erika's legal controversy. For the record, "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star was accused of faking her divorce from Tom Girardi to get rid of the embezzlement lawsuit filed against the two. Meghan said, "There hasn't been a trial. She hasn't been charged."
Meghan later said of Erika, "I never understood why people think she's so icy. Maybe it's because I'm very similar." She went on to note, "I'm not best friends with everybody, I keep my social circle close, I trust who I trust, and I don't think anybody should necessarily have that kind of agency over you, especially in times of crisis."
"I know she was drowning for a long time and just trying to stay above water," the conservative columnist continued. "If it comes out in court that she has done something wrong, fine. But until then, [I'm on her side]."
In the episode, Meghan disclosed that Sunny Hostin is the "only" "The View" panelist she "still [has] a relationship with." The "Bad Republican" author, who exited the daytime talk show last August, elaborated, "I have such love for her and respect for he… She's a really good person and she didn't demonize me the way a lot of other people did, for whatever that's worth."
