Talk about a close-knit group! It turns out The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are more interconnected than we ever knew. Not only was Yolanda H. Foster married to Mohamed Hadid, Lisa Vanderpump’s good friend, it turns out Taylor Armstrong is chummy with David Foster’s ex-wife. 

Linda Thompson is a songwriter and former beauty queen who divorced David Foster in 2005. At the time of the split, Linda told PEOPLE the cause of the divorce "will remain personal and private.” In a statement, David said, “"The end of every relationship has three sides: His, hers and the truth.” 

Their relationship was chronicled on the short-lived reality show Princes of Malibu. Linda’s sons — with Olympian and sort-of Kardashian Bruce Jenner — Brandon and Brody Jenner also starred, along with future The Hills star Spencer Pratt.

In addition to Bruce Jenner and David Foster, Linda also had a relationship with the King — Elvis, that is. The TV movie Elvis and the Beauty Queen chronicles their time together. 

Linda has appeared on a few RHoBH episodes herself. In Season 1, she and Taylor talk about Kennedy’s $50,000 birthday party. In Season 2, Episode 14, while Taylor got a little hysterical at Brandi Glanville’s Malibu beach party, Linda serenely looked out into the sea and got philosophical, saying, ““Look at this big wide ocean. This ocean’s going to be here long after we’re all gone“ and “We are an evolved species.”
