Kristen Taekman in a white dress attends the Bravo Upfronts 2015

So far, Kristen Taekman has had a lot of drama on Real Housewives Of New York, but Bravo just isn’t taken with her! And neither is Bethenny Frankel – which may mean Kristen is out of a job next season! 

According to sources, the network just doesn’t feel Kristen is the right fit for RHONY and this may be Little Miss Prettttttttty’s last season. Hopefully this whole nail polish mogul thing takes off! Sources reveal that Bravo is largely satisfied with the revamping of this season, but there’s too many Housewives and the network already has restructuring in the works for next season. Gee – maybe another friend of Bethenny’s?!



A source shares that Kristen may go the way of her bestie Brandi Glanville, and get the axe for next season. The reason: she’s too vanilla and doesn’t really mix with the other girls. Additionally, Bethenny, who has absolutely no say in what happens, doesn’t like her! “Kristen is likely departing,” assures an insider. 

Kristen will probably not be invited back to the show because she doesn’t fit in and her story line is stale,” the source explains to Page Six. “Bethenny wants her off the show. She is now the anchor.” She is – because she doesn’t get along with anyone either?!

With Bethenny being against her against her “will be the nail in Kristen’s coffin.” Interesting – Kristen was the only Housewife ballsy enough to take-on Beth. 

RHONY celebrates its 100th episode on June 30th, and is planning a big bash. Rumor has it Kristen may be left off the guest list as the season nears its finale. Bravo has no comment on the matter and insists no casting decisions have been made since the season is still airing, Kristen’s rep also had no comment, but Kristen like the rest of the RHONY ladies was present at the Upfronts, which is generally seen as an indicator for whether or not a star still has a job at the network. 

Meanwhile, in other drama – tomorrow the cast heads to Turks and Caicos to celebrate Sonja Morgan‘s freedom from bankruptcy and there was much, much drama that washed ashore! 

Ramona Singer and Luann de Lesseps “infuriated” their cast mates with their single gal behavior on the trip because they brought “strange men” back to the beach house after a debaucherous night out. However there is debate over who really brought the man home! 

Some sources say it was Luann who hauled home the loot, and Ramona “brought a guy home as well.” But another source insists, Luann is innocent and was covering for her divorcing girlfriend. “It was Ramona who brought a guy home, not Luann. That led to a big fight.” Why does it matter – Ramona is single and so is Luann?! I mean, yeah, they’re too old for spring break behavior, but if they want some late-night hookup, so what! Just make sure to use protection, ladies!

The island drama spawned a massive rift between Luann, Heather Thomson, and Carole Radziwill, which will span the remainder of the season. It also led to Luann famously uttering, “Be cool. Don’t be all, like, uncool.” Which has served as the inspiration for Luann’s newest song, recently recorded! “The line’s been teased in a promo for the show, and LuAnn’s recorded a song, “Girl Code: Don’t Be So Uncool.”
