“What I believe is that it does happen for a reason,” Selena said of her lupus diagnosis. “I think a huge part of my discernment and my honesty and my truth has been because I’ve had a relationship with God.”

“I don’t want people to think it’s a sad thing that I went through this with Francia or with anything in my life,” she said. “I think all of the stuff that I went through made me and defined everything that I am right now. It’s a really beautiful thing and I have to remind myself of that. It’s not a negative experience.”

Selena Gomez and Francia Raisa sat down for their first interview about their kidney surgeries this morning with the Today show.

In the candid interview, the two actresses and BFFs opened up about the grueling experience where Selena also revealed that she got a space for her and Francia to recover together afterwards.

“What I wanted more than anything was for us to be together, so I got a space for us to be in together,” Selena said. “You’re on bed rest, you’re allowed to walk for an hour a day, and you can’t do any stairs or anything crazy.”

Francia added that the two couldn’t really do anything without help from someone else.

“You constantly need to ask for help,” she shared. “I think one of the most humbling experiences was needing help to, like, put on underwear. We couldn’t take showers by ourselves. It was a really brutal process.”

Selena Gomez sat down for an interview with her kidney donor and best friend, Francia Raisa, which aired today on the Today show.

The pair discussed Selena‘s failing health, Francia deciding to get tested to see if she was eligible to donate, the day of the surgery, and more.

“I had arthritis. my kidneys were shutting down,” Selena tearfully revealed. She continued that the transplant need was dire, and the list to get a transplant was very long. “I don’t know what to do. The list is 7 to 10 years long,” she said.

“The thought of asking somebody to do that was really difficult to me,” Selena continued, and Francia volunteered.

“I had to write a will. Which is scary…My mom didn’t want to be there until I woke up. She loves Selena, so she was torn,” Francia said.

Selena also added there was a complication after the surgery where the kidney started to flip. She had to go back in for another procedure.
