When Sam Faiers and Kim Kardashian posed for a picture together earlier this year, it seemed like a rather random celebrity pairing.
But the meeting obviously made an impact on the former TOWIE star who is now eyeing-up becoming Kim’s BFF.
Speaking to Now magazine, Sam said: "She was really sweet and polite. The next step is to become best friends. They were filming [‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’] when I saw her – I might be in the background."
Well, the two are reality TV stars. And we guess stranger things have happened.
However if the pair are to become chums then they might have to get used to having a long distance friendship after Sam explained she wouldn’t be moving to Tinsel Town.
The blonde said: "My friend lives there, so I want to go out there more, but I couldn’t live there, no. I was Skyping Billie and baby Nelly after three days. I couldn’t leave my home in Essex."
Spoilt for choice
Although, considering that Kim has mates scattered all over the globe, there’s a small chance that things could work out.
For instance, after being denied entry into India last week, the mum-of-one darted to Dubai to spend time with her friend Carla DiBello.
The resourceful 34-year-old had easily turned a bad situation into a good one as she enjoyed some R&R on a luxury yacht.
At the exact same point, could-be-BFF Sam was also holidaying in the Middle East.
Except unlike Mrs Kanye West, the Essex girl was joined by her sister Billie for the trip to the vacation hotspot.
The siblings weren’t shy about sharing their bikini snaps and obviously wanted to show off what great shape they were in.
