Confirmation that Poussey and Taystee are BFFs for real is giving us life.

You know what's gorgeous? When it's clear how much friends love each other.

But something tells us they also have girls' nights in.

True friendship is when you post a photo to your Instagram that doesn't have you in it and includes a caption as supportive as this one.
