If you love watching Kyle Richards on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, you owe a thank you to another member of the Housewives franchise.

Kyle tells RumorFix that the reason she started watching Housewives in the first place was that she’s a big fan of Real Housewives of Atlanta’s NeNe Leakes. “That’s how I originally got sucked into watching Housewives before I did it,” Kyle explains. “She’s a star!”

And it turns out that NeNe is now a pretty big fan of Kyle’s, seeing as how earlier this month, she dropped by the opening of Kyle’s boutique, Kyle by Alene Too. You gotta like seeing Housewives helping other Housewives.

Kyle also was able to get advice from another popular member of the Housewives family: Real Housewives of New York’s Bethenny Frankel. “When I first started the show, Bethenny Frankel is a good friend of mine for over 20 years, so I was like ‘You need to help me out here. This is rough,’” Kyle admits.

Kyle explains that it can be nice to have someone to get pointers from who’s been through it all before. “It’s not all fun and games putting your life out there, being judged by people not necessarily knowing the whole situation,” she says. “It could be rough.”

It’s nice to know our favorite Housewives will always have each other!
