Well, this is the most unexpected celebrity squad we ever did see. Milo Manheim is low-key besties with the Kardashians, and it’s the friendship circle never knew we needed in our lives until now. The 17-year-old Disney Channel star opened up about how they came to be unexpected pals, and it all started by playing cards with the Kards (and Jenners).
“I met them a couple months ago and I taught them how to play poker, because they had a big [charity] poker event coming up and they did not know how to play,” Milo said in an interview with ET Online. “So they asked me and my mom [actress Camryn Manheim] to come over and we showed them, and they’re the best family ever.”
Kim herself even took to Twitter to encourage her fans to vote for #TeamWitlo on Dancing With the Stars.
“Tune in to watch @MiloManheim on Dancing With The Stars tonight!!” the 37-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star tweeted. “Good luck, Milo!”

Turns out, Kim had actually warned Milo NOT to compete on DWTS. She didn’t have a great experience, seeing as she’s not much of a dancer. However, we’re glad Milo didn’t take her advice because he is totally slaying it week after week on the ballroom dance floor.
“So, she doesn’t like dancing as much as I do, and I was like, ‘I’m about to do Dancing With the Stars, tell me, how was your experience?’ And she was like, ‘Milo, it’s the worst! Like you get injured, you feel like an idiot,'” Milo said. “And I was like, ‘OK…” So that was kinda my advice from her.”
Kim’s sister Kendall Jenner and their mother Kris Jenner also wished Milo good luck earlier this week. “goooo milo!” the 22-year-old model wrote – while the 62-year-old TV personality tweeted, “Tune in to watch @MiloManheim on @DancingABC tonight!! Vote at 1-800-868-3410!!! Good luck, Milo!”
Dancing With the Stars returns Monday at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
