As for which fellow Bravolebrity supported Zito on her reality TV coming out journey?
“It’s so funny, one of my largest support systems I’ve had since I was 17, and before she even did a Bravo show, is Kary Brittingham from The Real Housewives of Dallas,” she revealed. “She became family to me and I’m actually wearing one and put her necklaces now. I met her when I was 17. I was working three jobs, I was double majoring at community college and she was like, ‘Victoria, you’re gonna be a fashion designer. You’re gonna do good things,’ and I’m like, ‘You think so? I hope so, I’ll do whatever it takes. This is my dream, this is my goal.'”
She added, “Then she obviously went on to Real Housewives of Dallas and it’s been amazing to be able to pick up the phone and call her anytime I’m like having a panic attack like, ‘What if this comes out and what are they gonna say?’ and she’s like, ‘Victoria, all it’s all good. You’re fine.'”
Real Girlfriends in Paris premieres Monday, Sept. 5, at 9:15 p.m. with two back-to-back episodes on Bravo.
(E! and Bravo are both part of the NBCUniversal family)
