Bethenny Frankel and Kyle Richards Look Pie-eyed After a Girls' Night Out in Los Angeles
Birds of a feather flock together, which is why a friendship between Bethenny Frankel and Kyle Richards is unsurprising.

Both women appear on different versions of Bravo's Real Housewives series: New York and Beverly Hills, respectively.

The long-time friends seemed to have immensely enjoyed themselves as they stepped out for dinner last night at Boa steakhouse in West Hollywood.

Bethenny, 40, couldn't keep the huge grin off of her face as she exited the restaurant, while 42-year-old Kyle descended the stairs to valet very, very carefully.

Instead of standing up and waiting for their cars, the pals decided to sit down on the steps and exclaim over Bethenny's black Christian Louboutin stilettos.

The women, who bear an uncanny resemblance to one another, seemed completely immersed in their footwear discussion.

Unfortunately, it didn't look as if Kyle's similar black wedges received any talk time at all.

Paris Hilton's aunt didn't seem to mind, especially given that the reality stars have been friends for over twenty years.

She told the New York Post last year: '[Bethenny] was the hostess at a restaurant in Beverly Hills.. She'll probably kill me for saying this, but I was having lunch one day and she plopped down right next to me and said, Do you use Lancome eye makeup remover?'

'Turns out she was dating my ex and the Lancome was in his apartment. We started laughing and became friends. Then I got her a job with my sister [Kathy Hilton] driving Paris and Nicky to school.'

In addition to looking alike and sharing a similar taste in men, the ladies have had to defend themselves against criticism recently.

After watching herself fight with co-star Brandi Glanville, Kyle told Wetpaint Entertainment: 'That's just not who I am at all!'

Bethenny, who is mother to 17-month-old daughter Bryn, has recently come under fire for allegedly pretending to be lost at sea with husband Jason Hoppy.
