What happens when bubbly CW personality meets bubbly ABC personality? You've got yourself a super chatty, long-lasting friendship — well, that and a possible spin-off show entitled Katie's Next Top Model (we wish!).

We're still scratching our heads as to how ANTM host Tyra Banks ended up in a photo latching on to ABC News' Katie Couric, but whatever the case, the two TV faces looked nothing short of old time buds at the 2012 Matrix Awards Luncheon in NYC yesterday (April 23).

Sure, Tyra towers over Katie in photos, but that problem was quickly aborted when Tyra helped Katie hop up on a step stool for the red carpet pics … and cue the "That's What Friends Are For" theme song!
