According to Kyle, Bethenny unfollowed her first.
‘She unfollowed me, and I was like, “Well, why do I want to follow someone who doesn’t follow me, a friend?” So I was like, well I don’t need to keep up with her either then!’
Comedian Paul Scheer, who was also a guest on WWHL, hilariously asked if she would be appearing on season two of Bethenny’s reality show The Big Shot.
‘No!’ Kyle said with a laugh.

Though they may not be chummy on Instagram, Kylie said they are still in contact.
‘We still talk and text,’ Kyle admitted. ‘But I don’t know, she just unfollowed a lot of people.’
Kyle first met Bethenny in the 90s when the future Skinnygirl mogul was working at the Beverly Hills restaurant La Scala Boutique.

Funny enough, Bethenny was dating Kyle’s ex-boyfriend at the time, and wanted to know about the expensive eye makeup remover she had found in the beau’s bathroom.
‘She came up to my table and was like, “Hi. I’m dating your ex-boyfriend,”‘ Kyle recalled on an episode of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills.
‘Basically she wanted to know if the expensive eye makeup remover in his bathroom was mine. Because she wanted to know what dumb idiot would spend that kind of money on eye makeup remover.’ Raising her hand with a sheepish smile on her face, Kyle admitted it was hers.
Despite their awkward connection to the same man, the pair ended up turning into firm friends, and have posted throwbacks capturing their early years of friendship.
They have even gone on to star on the hit Bravo shows, The Real Housewives Of New York and The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills.
