Are you a bit mystified at how it is that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Kim Richards and Brandi Glanville have managed to patch things up and become besties? Well, it sounds like Kim is right there with you. 

Kim appears on Bethenny this week and is asked how it is that someone like Kim — who's sober — and someone like Brandi — who's definitely not — are able to find common ground.

"I love her," Kim says simply. "We've come a long way, and when I'm with Brandi, she doesn't always drink. At times, she does."

Basically, Kim has trouble explaining their friendship in words, but there's no question that the two have each other's backs. "I don't know," Kim continues about how they've managed to become friends. "We just have this friendship that's grown. It just works — yeah, it does."

Aww! We love the fact that these two are so close, especially since it wasn't always this way. As you recall, Brandi once accused Kim of doing crystal meth in the bathroom, leading to Kim hiding Brandi's crutches.

Even last season, Kim was crying in the bathroom after an exchange with Brandi. But we're thrilled that they've gotten to such a great place these days!

Do you think Brandi and Kim will be able to stay friendly?
