After this iconic selfie was taken, the world was introduced to an unlikely new friendship between Amber Rose & Kim Kardashian. The two ladies are only connected through their mutual ex, Kanye West, and it looks like something positive is finally on the horizon after months of online feuds between both family and friends.

In a new interview on ABC‘s Nightline, Amber says the two are also sticking up for each other due to their shared past as “sex workers”: people who provide sexual entertainment for profit.

“People feel like Kim is just famous because she had a asex tape, and I’m just a famous ex stripper. We’re not able to be mothers and still be sexy, because we were ex-sex workers.”

Amber was a featured guest on Nightline to expound on her defending of Kim K. after she posted her latest infamous selfie on Twitter earlier this month. Rose has taken on a role of feminist activist in recent months, speaking on women’s right to sexual freedom and the concept of consent. To get an idea of just how close the girls have gotten, Rose says that she and Kim text each other pretty often.

“I thought she looked beautiful. I think she’s a great mom and um, I’m gonna pick up for Kim. People think that me and Kim are arch enemies and we’re not,” Rose said in the interview. “We literally text each other all the time. We’re very like positive towards each other. I’m a mom, I know how hard it is to like work out and try to get your body back, but at the same time embracing the fact that your body does change after you have a baby.”

We wonder what those texts actually say, and if Kanye‘s ever peered over Kim‘s shoulder to see for himself. At least we know that Amber‘s not here for a reunion with Ye‘, that is, unless it’s for an apology.

“He has slut shamed me on numerous occasions, and that’s why I don’t particularly care for him,” Rose said. “It was very immature, and corny, and untrue. Because it’s just so far fetched and just stupid that it just didn’t really make sense. After he said he needed to take 30 showers after being with me, I want an apology for that.”
