They say distance makes the heart grow fonder. And longtime pals Brandi Glanville and Kristen Taekman seem to live up to that age-old motto. However, they also don't look like they are letting distance keep them apart for long. While they are Housewives on separate coasts, the East Coast/West Coast besties recently hung out with each other while Kristen was in sunny Los Angeles.

Of course, their choice to hangout isn't as random as it might seem. As the legend goes, Kristen and Brandi, already on The Real Housewives of Beverly hills, were pals long before the former decided to join RHONY this season. It was Brandi who introduced Kristen to Andy Cohen and the rest is, as they say, history.

So, it should probably come as no surprise that earlier this year, Kristen called Brandi "the best girlfriend you could ask for."

Now that her debut season on RHONY has wrapped, Kristen is growing comfortable with her newfound Bravolebrity. Of getting recognized in the street by fans, she told New York magazine's the Cut blog, "I never thought it would happen, but it does all the time. I’m super-chatty, so someone will come up for a picture and we’ll start talking. Suddenly, ten minutes have gone by and I realize that I should probably walk away. A few weeks ago, I was walking down the subway platform and someone taps me on the shoulder. I’m turning around, and without even thinking I was going to say, 'Yes, you can take a picture.' The woman goes, 'Is this the uptown train?' That put everything into perspective. I was very happy to give that woman directions.
