With all of the excitement of New York Fashion Week and Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Pillow Talk party, we almost forgot that it’s nearly our girl Cynthia Bailey’s birthday! The supermodel has been in the Big Apple for all of the fashion industry’s festivities, but she did find a little time to carve out for celebrating her — and she was joined by two familiar faces!

Now, we’re not surprised that Cynthia would spend time with her girl NeNe Leakes while here. She did sit front row at NeNe’s NYFW debut, after all! But what’s more surprising is that Real Housewives of Miami’’s Marysol Patton was also along for the fun!

The three fashionable gals enjoyed a boozy brunch at NYC club Lavo last weekend, and by the looks of things, they were having the time of their lives!

“Clearly we took having brunch 2 a whole new level #NYFW @marysolpatton @cynthiabailey10,” NeNe captions the shot.

Count us as big fans of this surprising — though fantastic — friendship! Just imagine what it would be like to have an evening of wine and palm reading with NeNe and Mama Elsa! Yes, please.
