Who knew Bethenny Frankel was such a pro at Housewifing?

The former Real Housewives of New York star, who helped get Aviva Drescher on Season 5,  also had a hand in coaching Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards about grappling with life on reality TV.

Kyle spoke to RumorFix at the launch of her Beverly Hills boutique, Kyle by Alene Too, and admitted, “When I first started the show, Bethenny Frankel is a good friend of mine for over twenty years, so I was like ‘You need to help me out here. This is rough.’”

The biggest pointer she’s gotten and passed along, Kyle said, is being herself despite the drama surrounding her. Good tip!

The Real Housewives of New York airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
