Cindy Crawford Gave Lisa Rinna's Daughter Modeling Advice

When you're as fabulous as the Real Housewives are, you're obviously going to surround yourself with people who are just as amazing. So not only do the Housewives have a whole host of famous fans, but they also have loads of celebrity friends.

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.

Yes, many of these relationships go back years, even decades, to a time before the ladies were household names. And these friendships are as strong as these besties are fierce.

Check out some of the Housewives' best celebrity pals, below. Warning: It might just be too awesome to handle.

1. Lisa Rinna

A post shared by Lisa Rinna (@lisarinna) on

As a longtime resident of Beverly Hills, Lisa Rinna has definitely gotten to know a ton of celebs. One of her most famous friends is Cindy Crawford, who she has bowled with and vacationed with up in Canada. The supermodel has even given Lisa's daughter Delilah Belle Hamlin some advice on breaking into the biz, which has obviously been working for her since she's now a rising star in the fashion world.

2. Bethenny Frankel

Bethenny Frankel may continue to grab headlines for her just friendship with Modern Family's Eric Stonestreet, but he's not the only celeb The Real Housewives of New York City mogul parties with. Bethenny has hung out with Christina Aguilera on a couple of occasions and has had Jamie Foxx over to her Hamptons hideaway. She also goes way back with Mario Lopez, with whom she worked on the set of Saved by the Bell when she first moved to Los Angeles. And how cute are these two together today?

3. Kyle Richards

This beauty always shines ⭐️ adore you @krisjenner #chla #oscars

A post shared by Kyle Richards Umansky (@kylerichards18) on

Kyle Richards has long been surrounded by a fabulous group of friends, even before her time on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. In addition to going way back with fellow Housewife Bethenny, the RHOBH fashionista has long been friends with Kris Jenner and her famous family. Her good pal Faye Resnick has also been known to cause a stir on RHOBH over the years. Kyle's contact list has gotten even more star-studded recently, thanks to being a part of the cast of The New Celebrity Apprentice. In particular, she and Carson Kressley were "really simpatico."

4. Sonja Morgan

Sonja still parties with her good friend, Ivana.

Sonja Morgan's friends are just as famous as her past boyfriends. The RHONY Renaissance woman has been longtime pals with Ivana Trump, as well as her ex-husband Donald Trump. She has also been known to party with the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, as well as Madonna and John F. Kennedy Jr., as she has revealed on RHONY in the past.

5. Kandi Burruss

If you scroll through Kandi Burruss' Instagram feed on the daily, you're sure to see her with the many famous members of her squad. These include her Xscape bandmate Tameka "Tiny" Harris, Monica, Lil Wayne's ex-wife Toya Wright, and NE-YO's ex-wife Monyetta Shaw. Now that Xscape is reuniting, we can probably expect Kandi to make even more major friendships in the music industry. 

6. Lisa Vanderpump

Sharon, Ken Todd, and Lisa make one terrific trio.

Lisa Vanderpump's best customer at PUMP may also be the West Hollywood hot spot's most famous. That honor belongs to Lance Bass, who is also a very good friend of the RHOBH restaurateur. Not only does he love to dine with Lisa, but he's also always there to support her work in trying to stop China's Yulin Dog Meat Festival and give dogs all over the world a better life. Lisa has also enlisted the help of another famous friend, Sharon Osbourne, to film a PSA speaking out against Yulin. Lisa and Lady Gaga also have a lot of love for each other, as do Lisa and Good Morning America's Robin Roberts. Let's be real, who doesn't love Lisa?

7. Melissa Gorga

We've found the most Jersey group of buds ever, and we absolutely love it. Melissa and Joe Gorga are besties with Cake Boss' Buddy and Lisa Valastro. We mean, they once had a huge karaoke singalong to "My Way" by Hoboken's own Frank Sinatra. We're feeling the Garden State love. 

8. Carole Radziwill

Carole Radziwill married into a famous family when she wed her late husband Anthony Radziwill, the son of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis' sister Lee Radziwill. Carole was extremely close to Anthony's cousin JFK Jr. and his wife, Carolyn Bessette Kennedy. She also counts many other celebs as part of her crew, including Christiane Amanpour and Scandal's Dan Bucatinsky, who even had a cameo of sorts on a past episode of RHONY

9. Cynthia Bailey

Waffle House or Soho House🤔@jussiesmollett #nobrainer #50Cynt

A post shared by Cynthia Bailey (@cynthiabailey10) on

Cynthia Bailey and Empire star Jussie Smollett make one dynamic duo, as you can see from the many pics these two take together on Instagram. Perhaps Jussie could help get Cynthia a guest spot on Empire one day, because we think that would be pretty amazing.

10. Heather Dubrow

How fun would it be to hang with Jenny and Heather?

One of Heather Dubrow's biggest acting roles was opposite Jenny McCarthy in her late '90s sitcom Jenny. Well, Heather and Jenny have remained friends ever since. Jenny attended Heather's bridal shower 20 years ago and more recently received some help from Heather's husband, Dr. Terry Dubrow, in 2015. How these two have managed to not age at all within that time is beyond us. 

11. Dorit Kemsley

Boy George Performs for the Housewives

Dorit Kemsley isn't just friends with Boy George; they're roomies. Boy George stays with Dorit and her husband (and his manager) Paul "PK" Kemsley when he's in Los Angeles. Now the iconic singer is pretty much one of the Kemsleys. "He's my daughter's godfather. He's my pseudo husband," Dorit previously told The Daily Dish. "I'm definitely in a menage-marriage at times. He's someone I trust implicitly. When my husband's not there, it's him and I — and we'll dine together; we'll cook together. He's with the kids. All of his friends become our friends and vice versa. And he's also George in our house. He's not always Boy George."

12. Siggy Flicker

Sammi and Siggy are one super-cool Jersey duo.

Another one of our favorite Jersey pairs is Siggy Flicker and Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola. Not only has The Real Housewives of New Jersey relationship expert given the Jersey Shore star plenty of advice in the love department, but the two even took their friendship to the next level by starting a podcast together with TV host Clare Galterio called Just Sayin'. Who wouldn't want to gab with these gals?

Watch Sammi gush about her friendship with Siggy, below.
