Kristen Taekman has learned a lot from Real Housewives Of New York and she’s here to tell you that pretty is no longer dumb – even if she is dumbfounded by Josh’s wandering internet habits what happens on reality TV. 

The most important thing Kristen has learned on Housewives, is aptly, “Know when to walk away. There are so many times where I wish I had just walked away.” Lessons Kristen will hopefully apply to her personal life as well…


Other good advice came from long-time reality TV star Bethenny Frankel! “Bethenny said it best: no skeletons in your closet. Because all that stuff is going to come up,” Kristen adds. “You’re like, Are you kidding me? Why on earth would you sign up for this?” Yes, why indeed JOSH?! 

Defending the realness of reality TV, Kristen says as far as things go, it’s often what you see is what you get! “It works exactly like it would work in real life,” she tells Allure Magazine. “There were events that I didn’t get invited to because I just wasn’t invited. That’s just how it works. That’s the reality of it.”

Kristen describes dealing with Ramona Singer as the weirdest part of the Housewives experience. No surprise there! “I’m not going to lie. I was intimidated to meet Ramona, for sure. I love to hate her,” she admits. “It’s not like she’s being mean. She looks amazing, though.” 

Kristen does credit the genius of Ramona for her infamous ‘pretty’ taglines. “It was just whatever came off the top of my head. Ramona kept saying, ‘You’re just another pretty face, blah, blah, blah.’ So I just kind of spoofed it.”

Unfortunately life isn’t all nail polish and pretty dresses – Kristen is currently dealing with the unsettling news that Josh was a longtime user of Ashley Madison. One person who isn’t surprised Josh was caught is Sonja Morgan. She is the master of the Sexy J! 

“I could see it coming,” Sonja informed Page Six. “I was trying to empower her. She didn’t take my advice,” adds Sonja. How so – she wanted Kristen to learn from her own mistakes of living in the delusion?

“I didn’t like the way he was treating her,” Sonja adds. “He chipped away at her self-esteem.” Ramona has had a dramatically different impression of the couple, and defended Kristen and Josh’s relationship
