Caitlyn Jenner spent a Saturday night out at the movies with friend and confidante Ronda Kamihira.

Jenner and Kamihira caught a movie together, according to X17 Online. As Kamihira said on I Am Cait, movie-going has been a frequent activity for the pair, who grew closer after Jenner came out to her as transgender.

“Years ago I confided in Ronda, and she really has been a friend that has supported me,” Jenner said in the premiere episode of I Am Cait.

“We’re best friends,” Kamihira said later in the series.

In fact, she was the one who helped Jenner choose her new name.

“I kind of narrowed it down to a few of them, Caitlyn being one of them, and I actually was with Ronda,” Jenner said in the series. “I was talking to her about this whole thing about two years ago, and she goes, ‘Well, I’ve always liked the name Caitlyn.’

“And I went, at some point, you just have to kind of bite the bullet and say, ‘Boom, it’s done.’ ”

Kamihira is also a close friend of Jenner’s ex-wife, Kris, which created new headlines when she and Jenner were seen together – even sparking romance rumors that were soon quashed.

“I don’t need to explain my relationship to anybody,” Jenner told Kim Kardashian West on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. “Nothing is going on. Certainly my intentions are not to hurt Kris. I don’t want anybody upset, but Kris is not going to tell me who I can and cannot hang out with.”

During another recent outing, Jenner bumped into daughter Kylie Jenner and former stepdaughter Kourtney Kardashian at Nobu Malibu.

“Perks of having a huge family,” Kylie captioned a selfie with Jenner.
