Here at The Daily Dish, nothing warms our hearts more than a Bravo crossover. Last season of Southern Charm Savannah, we were blessed with witnessing an epic hangout sesh between the Savannah crew and the Charleston Charmers, for instance. Sometimes, a crossover even occurs way before the Bravolebs appear on TV.
Did you know that Hannah Pearson goes way back with Porsha Williams' little sister Lauren Williams? The Savannah Charmer and The Real Housewives of Atlanta sister have known each other since elementary school. They stayed friends during their school years through their high school graduation from Woodward Academy in Atlanta.
Hannah recently told The Daily Dish via email that she has fond memories of growing up with Lauren. "Lauren was always really fun! We did years of dance together growing up and then cheerleading in high school," she shared. "We always had a good time!"

These days, Hannah said that she and Lauren don't get a chance to see each other as often since they live in different cities. "I saw her last year at our high school reunion, and we text on occasion!" Hannah said. "She has been so supportive and has given me a lot of good advice in regards to the show! (And obviously we keep up on social media.)"
Though Hannah said she has never met Porsha, she does love watching the Williams sisters on RHOA, just like the rest of us. "They’re an absolute riot! I always loved watching RHOA ever since it started because it’s cool to see places from home on TV. Then one day I did a double take and said, 'OMG! That’s Lauren Williams!!'" Hannah gushed. "I just love them and love their sisterly bond on the show. I’m really proud of [Lauren] and everything she’s accomplished. Watching her do her thing as a businesswoman and a mom is really so cool!"
