It certainly is a small world, isn’t it?
On Thursday, Bethenny Frankel took to Instagram to share a particularly nostalgic throwback from her teen pageant days. However, the Real Housewives of New York vet wasn’t the only celeb in the pic as a young Halle Berry was also featured in the photo. LOVES it!
The RHONY alum posted:

Well look at that! Now, we can’t say we’re surprised to learn about Halle and Bethenny’s Miss Teen Long Island connection as the Oscar winner launched her career by participating in numerous pageants.
In case you forgot, the Extant actress was not only at one point Miss Ohio but she was also the 1986 runner up for the Miss USA pageant. Not to mention, the 50-year-old was the first African-American to represent the United States during the Miss World spectacle.
Also, the reality TV star’s throwback comes only a day after the A-lister donned her crown once more in support of women who’ve survived domestic abuse (below).
My #WCW goes to all my QUEENS who have suffered any form of domestic violence. I think this quote captures it perfectly… ├░┼╕ΓÇÿΓÇÿ “Dear women, Sometimes you’ll just be too much woman. Too smart, too beautiful, too strong. Too much of something. That makes a man feel like less of a man, which will start making you feel like you have to be less of a woman. The biggest mistake you can make is removing jewels from your crown to make it easier for a man to carry. When this happens, I need you to understand, you do not need a smaller crown… You need a man with bigger hands.” (├░┼╕ΓÇÖ┬¼ @justmike_ ) #domesticviolenceawarenessmonth #domesticviolence #purplepurse ├░┼╕ΓÇÖ┼ô @jenessecenterA photo posted by Halle Berry (@halleberry) on Oct 12, 2016 at 6:08pm PDT
Regardless, here’s hoping Bethenny and Halle reunite one day to re-create this snap. LOLz!
