Kyle Richards and Dorit Kemsley might be making their friendship permanent.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars opened up about their friendship during the “Bravo2Bravo: Bosom Buddies” panel at BravoCon 2023, and how they are often “tested” as best friends.

“We’re tested over and over again all these years,” Richards, 54, told the audience after being asked how her relationship with Kemsley, 47, has grown over the years. She added, “The relationship that Dorit and I have is like sisters."

Richards then briefly joked that her dynamic with Kemsley is slightly different than the one she shares with her two older sisters, Kim Richards and Kathy Hilton, whose falling-outs and reconciliations with the Halloween star have set a backdrop for her storylines on RHOBH since season 1.

Richards and Kemsley are closer than ever lately, as they lean on one another after enduring rough periods in their respective relationships. “As far as Kyle and I going through issues in our marriage at the same time, which is rather bizarre, we have been very supportive to one another,” Kemsley told PEOPLE on Thursday.

Kemsley was asked if she could confirm or deny the rumors regarding her relationship with her husband Paul “PK” Kemsley and that they were living separately. “You know, I already did deny the rumors immediately. … It seems like no one really pays attention to that. So yes, the rumors are not true,” Kemsley told the audience.

When asked by the moderator what has “surprised” each of them about the other this year, Kemsley proudly stated, “I know that this last year, Kyle has got a thicker skin than I thought she had, which I was really happy to learn.”

Richards responded, “I’ve learned that Dorit will get a little jealous if I have a good friend, and then she’s open to getting a tattoo with me.”
