"I’ve got to give a shout out to Miss Amber Riley, she’s the best. I love her so much. I’m so proud of her [and] she’s been there for me so much through everything. I’m so thankful this year for those friends and my family."
"I called her and said, I don’t know where I’m going to go because my house is swarmed [with reporters]. She was like, ‘Oh, you’re going to stay at my house.’ Like it was nothing, she let my family stay there, and any of my friends. She made sure that in the refrigerator were my favorite juices. I’ll never really be able to thank her, truly, for what she did for me.""
