Nicole Brown Simpson and Kris Jenner were very close friends. Amidst hype over the upcoming American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, Jenner spoke with People magazine about some of the very special moments the two girlfriends shared.

"Nicole was an amazing friend," Kris Jenner says. "There were some really great precious moments we shared, [ones] that you have when you spend your life with someone."

Nicole Brown Simpson even helped Jenner through a very difficult time in her life.

"Before I got pregnant with Kendall, I had a miscarriage at three months," Jenner says. "Nicole really got me through that."

After healing from the miscarriage, Kris Jenner and Nicole Brown Simpson became workout partners.

"I had never run before," Jenner explains. "And Nicole would encourage me. She got me running--and she told, me, 'I promise you'll get pregnant [again].'"

"In the middle of that, she said, 'I'm going to give you all of my maternity clothes.' Allen Schwartz made Nicole this entire wardrobe of maternity dresses. She had them in every color. And she gave them all to me," the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star adds.

Kris Jenner did get pregnant again--with Kendall Jenner and later with daughter Kylie Jenner--but Nicole Brown Simpson didn't live to see either of Kris's pregnancies.

Kendall Jenner is named Kendall Nicole in memory of Nicole Brown Simpson.

"One day I'll hopefully be able to say to God, 'Why did you take her so young?' But [until then], it gives me great comfort to say my prayers and talk to her. I loved my friend really hard. And [her death] was a loss for so many," Kris Jenner says.

American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson will detail the trial in which O.J. Simpson was charged with the murders of both Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman. It premieres February 2 on FX.
