Brandy became close friends with Bristol Palin during their 'Dancing With The Stars' experience, the singer/actress told George Lopez Wednesday night.

While Brandy eventually lost to Bristol in fan voting despite superior scores, she said the two worked together to improve their acts.

"Bristol and I really connected," she said. "Because you know, when you're in that type of environment, everybody gets close at some point because we're in the same boat and we're there together all the time. So, with Bristol and I, we had to work on our facial expressions, like she had to do the tango one week, so I'm like 'BP, let me see your sexy.'"

Brandy may have Bristol's mom, Sarah Palin, to thank for her new friendship - 'Dancing' contestant Margaret Cho claimed that Sarah forced Bristol into participating in the show.

Brandy also spoke with Lopez about her struggling love life. Yesterday, the star said that she was "not okay" being single. In fact, she claims that she has been celibate for the past six years.
