Lisa Rinna and Garcelle Beauvais had a tense Season 11 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, culminating in an emotional reunion for the pair, as we saw when Part 1 aired earlier this week. However, Lisa would like to remind us that their friendship has a deep history that goes way beyond RHOBH.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Bravo on Wednesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

Lisa dedicated a Throwback Thursday post to Garcelle on October 14, sharing a photo of the pair on Instagram from more than 15 years ago. The pic, which you can see in full below, shows Lisa and Garcelle together at designer Kevan Hall's Fashion Week runway show in Culver City, California in 2005. "Life Before Housewives," Lisa captioned the snap on Instagram.

Garcelle Beauvais Lisa Rinna Friendship

You'll find plenty more photos like this of Lisa and Garcelle from throughout their 20-year friendship. And it's because of that longtime camaraderie that they worked so hard to rebuild their relationship this season of RHOBH following the events of Season 10.

However, that journey wasn't an easy one, as they discussed during Part 1 of the RHOBH Season 11 reunion, which aired on October 13. Though Lisa said that she felt like she "certainly did everything" that she could to get back to a good place with Garcelle this season, Garcelle admitted that she wasn't sure how she felt about some of Lisa's friendly gestures. "If I'm gonna be really honest, I'm not sure how I took them, honestly," Garcelle shared. "Those were lovely things to do; I just don't trust."

As Lisa and Garcelle tried to get to the root of their issues with the help of their fellow Beverly Hills Housewives and host Andy Cohen at the reunion, they ultimately resolved to move on. That promise was sealed with a hug that Lisa memorably got out of her seat and moved over to Garcelle's couch to achieve.

So, is Garcelle still committed to moving forward with Lisa today? When Garcelle appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on October 13, Andy asked her, "And did you feel more closure with her as you left that night?" "As I left that night, yes," Garcelle replied. "I felt like, you know what, clean slate."

The RHOBH Season 11 reunion continues with Part 2 on Wednesday, October 20 at 8/7c.
