We’re glad that, even in these confusing times, some things are a certainty — like the immortality of a best friendship. Take, for example, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville and Real Housewives of New York star Kristen Taekman.


The two blonde beauties celebrated their BFF-dom over lunch the other day, and looked totally gorgeous doing it! Brandi donned a black and white floral print top and, inexplicably, sunglasses inside, while Kristen looked at chic as ever with a perfectly ruffled A-line bob and an olive blouse.

Brandi and Kristen have been friends for ages; Brandi even helped Kristen when she first started on RHONY. “Brandi and I go way back,” Kristen shared with us. “Everybody’s asking me what tips or advice I’ve gotten. The only advice you can really give me is how to manage my kids with filming, and my personal life with the work stuff. And Brandi’s been juggling that for years, so she kind of helped me with that.”

The ladies have been juggling a lot lately! Brandi’s been super busy this month — her online store just opened, so she’s been doing the important service of selling “STFU” tank tops and sweatshirts to the masses (or, like, a few people, at least). Kristen, meanwhile, has been doing some good with the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge alongside RHONY pal . Sounds like they had plenty to chat about over their lunch!

What do you think Kristen and Brandi talked about? Is Kristen a good addition to RHONY? Tell us what you think in the comments!
