Kristen Taekman is off to one heck of a start as the newest member of the Real Housewives of New York City. I, for one, am loving the model-mommy's refreshing way of keeping her cool, yet still speaking her mind. Quite a change from most of the housewives — I am talking to you Aviva Drescher!
On last night's episode, Kristen learned what happens when you try and take on Ramona Singer. I mean how dare Kristen call out Ramona for something that she did? Did she not get the memo before the season started that Ramona can do and say, what Ramona wants to do or say, and the other housewives are not supposed to point that out. I say, "Go Kristen!", it is about time somebody pointed out the double standard that is Ramona. And the fact that she does it calmly and sanely, is just icing on the cake.

On Ramona, "Ramona and I are butting heads, obviously. She was out to get me from day one. She said in her interview, "Oh now you talk, you're not just sitting there pretty." I have been talking this whole time. It's not my problem you haven’t been listening. Give me something to talk about and have an opinion and I will."
Kristen goes on to talk about what I would call the most dramatic moment of the episode.
"It was a great idea to have us all try and let loose and relax at a spa. (Impossible for us all, but great idea). Ramona walked in with a perfect blow out — so bizarre, at a spa? Funny that Ramona kept talking about knowing Ben's mother? Ramona is out to get me. She keeps pushing me. I am not taking her bait. I think it's irritating her even more that I am not freaking out back at her. I have a calm and rational way of dealing with her and I am getting the feeling that that's new to her. Not cool to throw anything at anyone. Ohhhhh, she was mad when I messed up her hair!?! Why can she throw wine at me and it's not OK for me to throw it back?? #staytuned"
And stay tuned we will, it looks like things go from bad to worse and Ramona and Kristen continue throwing things at each other on their retreat to The Berkshires next week. But this time it looks like someone might end up in the hospital.
TELL US! WHAT ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT KRISTEN SO FAR THIS SEASON? DO YOU THINK RAMONA IS FULL OF DOUBLE STANDARDS?
