“This is what it is: It’s unconditional love for each other,” Val told DWTS co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet, according to E! “It doesn't have to be boyfriend-and-girlfriend. It's a relationship that I cherish. She can rely on me and I know I can rely on her."
We already know that Val thinks of Kelly as part of the Chmerkovskiy family, so it sounds like these two are in it for the long haul. You know, whatever “it” may be.
