Go, Best Friend! LaLa Anthony Defends Ciara's Relationship PDA on 'The View'

She clocked Raven for coming for her bestie.

LaLa Anthony is serious about her best friend duties, even when it comes to their romantic relationships. This was made crystal clear when the former VJ appeared as a guest panelist on The View on Friday. When co-host Raven-Symoné called out Ciara for putting her most intimate moments with her ex Future out there for the world to see, LaLa shut her down with the quickness.

"Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt, J. Lo and Diddy, J. Lo and Ben Affleck, J. Lo and Marc Anthony, Ciara and Future, even Love and Hip Hop's Stevie J and Joseline," Raven said. "Like, you have these people who make their relationship all about social media and they break up later."

LaLa, who was sitting right beside Raven, came to her bestie's defense, saying that's just not who she is, but rather what the public makes it.

"Well, Raven, Ciara is one of my best friends and she's never made her relationship on social media, that's not her thing at all," she said. "I think that the public's fascination makes it about social media. I think the public can create the relationship on social media and a lot of the time the celebrity doesn't. There's a fascination with the celebrity and the couple that drives it to be a social media type relationship."

Bestie goals, indeed. Take a look at the exchange, below:
