Kyle Richards Instagram


Long before the days of Real Housewives, Bethenny Frankel and Kyle Richards apparently still shared a friendship.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills beauty took to Twitter today to share a flashback Friday photo with the former Real Housewives of New York star and it's safe to say the pic is an epic photo of the reality stars!

"I love this #flashbackfriday with @bethenny flashing WAAAY back," the 45-year-old Bravo star captioned the old-school shot.

While the pair have clearly grown up since the photo was taken, Richards is still rocking her enviable brunette locks as Frankel's defined cheekbones and signature smile shine.

So how did these two know each other back in the day?!

Turns out, Bethenny was Kyle's sister Kathy Hilton's personal assistant and she also used to babysit Paris Hilton (Richard's niece).

But nowadays, Richards stars on the hit Bravo series and owns her own boutique in Beverly Hills, Calif., while Frankel hosts her own talk show appropriately titled Bethenny.

Small world!

The flashback photo wasn't the only bombshell Richards recently shared. On the Monday, Jan. 27, episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the mother of four reminded viewers that she used to be on NBC's ER. The actress recurred as Nurse Dori from 1998-2006, appearing in more than 20 episodes of the medical drama.

Look who's full of surprises!
