Two of Bravo’s biggest stars enjoyed a night out on the town when Bethenny Frankel of Bethenny Ever After and Kyle Richards of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills hit NYC hotspot Beauty & Essex on April 2.
Kyle, in town for Bravo’s Upfront presentation, joined Bethenny and another gal pal and, together, the trio shared orders of lobster tacos and tomato tartare washed down with glasses of white wine.
Bethenny and Kyle’s friendship goes way back — years ago, Bethenny used to babysit for Kyle’s nieces, Paris and Nicky Hilton. Leaving their husbands at home, Bethenny and Kyle spent the meal catching up on old times. “They were excited to see each other,” an observer tells Wetpaint Entertainment. “They were talking closely and laughing a lot.”
Towards the end of dinner, Kyle’s daughter Farrah showed up to say hello and, before long, two more Bravo-lebrities joined the crew: Interior Therapy stars Jeff Lewis and Jenni Pulos!
Safe to say, a blast was had by all. “Fun dinner last night in NYC with @bethenny @JLJeffLewis @Jennipulos @FarrahBritt,” Kyle tweeted. “Loving this gorgeous day in NYC !”
Unfortunately for Bethenny, she was hit by bad news on Tuesday, as her dog Cookie wasn't feeling well and had to be taken to the vet. "Leaving my doggie at a hospital rips my heart out. So upset :(" Bethenny tweeted on Tuesday morning. Later in the day, Bethenny tweeted a pic of herself with her sad-looking pup wearing a cone. Get better soon, Cookie!
