She found fame with her own reality show alongside her mother Lisa, chronicling their quest for love in New York City and her attempts to launch a modeling career.
Fast forward eight years, and Brittny Gastineau appears to have found the man of her dreams.
The 29-year-old socialist - who counts Kim Kardashian as her best friend - showed off her curves in a revealing black bikini as she lounged poolside with her boyfriend in Miami, Florida on Monday.
Brittny appears to possess very similar curves to her famous BFF, proudly displaying her figure in a black bikini top, but opting to cover up with a zebra-patterned sarong.
She wore her dark hair in loose, unstyled waves over her shoulders and appeared to be wearing no makeup.
Brittny and her boyfriend were first seen giggling as they stood in the shallow ocean surf, before making their way to a nearby pool to lounge.
The pair were seen kicking back on sun loungers next to a swimming pool.
The duo appeared to be enjoying Bloody Mary cocktails as they chatted and laughed together.
At one point, Brittny was seen lying back reading a tabloid magazine.
The brunette beauty, who is largely based in Los Angeles, had just flown in from a holiday in the Bahamas and obviously decided she needed some more beach action.
It looked as though she had caught the sun whilst on vacation as she sported a lovely tan.
Brittny is one of a select few of Kim's friends to have met baby North before any pictures of the famous tot had been shared with the world.
