It’s safe to say Kyle Richards and Adrienne Maloof were never super tight. Though they never really had a huge falling out, they tended to butt heads when they first co-starred on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Now that Adrienne has taken a year off from the Bravo series and is returning in Season 5 in order to “mend” and get “closure”, we’re thrilled to report that these two seem to be getting pretty chummy days!


“Great running into you and Mauricio at dinner the other night @KyleRichards18,” Adrienne tweeted on August 13. “So nice catching up! Xo.” Kyle seemed pretty excited to meet up with her old pal, responding, “so fun! XO ❤.” This is definitely a change of tune from the days of old, right?

Speaking to AllAboutTHR back in 2013 — that was toward the end of Season 3 — Kyle opened up about her friendship with Adrienne, clarifying that she and the 52-year-old entrepreneur aren’t besties and barely even talk outside of the show.

“People get confused and think I’m best friends with Adrienne and the truth is I’m not even that close with her,” Kyle told the site. “I’m friends with Adrienne but I’ve had very little contact with her ever since shooting Season 3. The only contact I’ve had with her is what you’ve seen on the show and I’ve only seen her twice since the show wrapped.”

We’re not too surprised that these two busy ladies don’t have time to see each other outside of the show. Perhaps now that they’ve been thrown back together with Adrienne’s return they’ll be jiving better. In fact, all we’re wondering now is whether or not Adrienne has quashed her feud with Brandi Glanville. Meeting for lunch is at least a move in the right direction, right?
