When American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpsonpremiered last year, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans likely tuned in to see Connie Britton put her stamp on Kyle Richards' longtime pal Faye Resnick, a friend of the late Nicole Brown Simpson who wrote the book, Nicole Brown Simpson: The Private Diary of a Life Interrupted, and testified during her 1995 murder trial. (Faye has appeared on and off on RHOBH since Season 1.)
Connie definitely chewed up some scenery in the FX series, but did she ever hear from the real-life Faye after the episodes aired? "I never did, no. I never heard from her. And I really tried to to do her justice," Connie said. "In fact, when I was working with Larry King — 'cause he did those interviews with her and I think he knew her [or] knows her very well — he gave me a thumbs up, so I felt good about it." Despite never getting her stamp of approval, Connie did walk away from the experience of playing Faye with one intention: "I did want to honor her," she said.
In addition to The People v. O.J. Simpson, Connie also delivered her own version of Faye on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. You can relive the iconic moment, below.
