The Real Housewives of New York‘s Bethenny Frankel is pretty much the queen of throwback pictures. Several times in the past, she has either left us in stitches of laughter or forced us to do a serious double take. But we have to say it: This latest post might just be her best yet — well, if you like A-list celebrities, that is.
Frankel took to Instagram on Thursday, Oct. 13 to share a photo from the Miss Teen Long Island beauty pageant, and in it, she can be seen posing with Halle Berry. Yes, that’s right; Berry and Frankel actually knew each other decades ago (and fans are impressed).
Frankel captioned the image with, “Hi @halleberry #missteenlongisland #tbt.”
While both women have left their days of beauty pageants in the past, it did serve as a great platform to get them noticed. Berry in particular enjoyed great success on the pageant stage, winning the Miss Teen Ohio pageant when she was age 18 before going on to be named Miss Teen All-America, People reports. Berry was also the first runner-up in the Miss USA pageant, and the first black woman to represent the United States in the Miss World pageant.
Of course, fans are loving the throwback and took to the comment section to share their thoughts.
“Love the picture. Pictures like that make me feel a lot better that I wasn’t the only one with big hair and the whole nine yards. LOL,” betsycatanzarite commented. While makeupwithmarcy was super-impressed with the fact that two of her favorite celebs were in the same picture. She wrote, “Wow! Small [world] Halle Barry and Bethany [sic] Frankel who knew… love you both.”
And kellkd37 wrote, “Love love love u @bethennyfrankel Great old school pic, thanks for sharing!”
Yep, this has definitely got to be one of our favorite throwback pictures. Thanks, Bethenny Frankel.
