Even though I like Kristen Taekman, she didn’t exactly make her mark on Real Housewives of New York. Other than facing Ramona Singer’s wrath for getting her hair wet, Kristen was just, well, there. In all honesty, she was just too normal for reality TV.
I thought things might get interesting when her husband Josh Taekman was implicated in the Ashley Madison scandal. In case anyone forgot, Ashley Madison is a dating site for people looking to have affairs. Josh was a member of that website. That news broke right after Kristen wrapped up her final season. I thought it was enough for her to get another season, but she moved on. Or she was fired. I have no idea.
Well, she actually could have returned to the show last season. Apparently, Bethenny Frankel asked Kristen to film. Who had any idea that these two were friends? I didn’t, but I would have loved to see if Kristen could make a bigger impact the second time around. Plus, she would be a way better “Friend of the Housewives” than Barbara Kavovit was. The RHONY ladies just didn’t give Barbara a chance.. and neither did the viewers.
This week’s reality star roundup includes The Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel celebrating the launch of her new Skinnygirl Jeans along with her co-stars Dorinda Medley, Tinsley Mortimer, and Sonja Morgan.
We also have Kandi Burruss making her big Broadway debut in the production of ‘Chicago‘.
Vanderpump Rules stars Stassi Schroeder and Ariana Madix hit up the premiere party for The Alienist.
Newly minted parents-of-three, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, enjoyed a little date night before the arrival of their daughter.
Your favorite Reality TV stars celebrated 2018 in style and documented their good times on social media, of course. They shared photos with their significant others, children, and friends on New Year’s Eve.
The most shocking post by far was from Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent who finally posted a photo with her longtime boyfriend Randall Emmett, after over a year of speculation about their relationship. Then again, the news became officially official when that video leaked of them making out at a party, his divorce is actually finalized, and there’s really no reason to keep the romance under wraps at this point. It was just pretty surprising considering how private the two have been in the past.
It is the most wonderful time of the year! Not only are there great reality TV shows on right now, but also the winter holidays are coming up! This means that your favorite reality stars are getting festive, picking out and decorating their Christmas trees and attending big parties. They’ve shared some great photos for this week’s Instagram Roundup for their fans and followers to enjoy.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Eileen Davidson and her family chose their Christmas tree. Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino went to the Christmas tree farm with her family. Terry Dubrow shared a photo of his wife Heather Dubrow decorating a massive tree at the infamously mysterious (and expensive) Chateau Dubrow. Ex Real Housewives of New York star Kristen Taekman carried her family’s tree with help from her husband Josh Taekman.
They may not be Real Housewives anymore, but Brandi Glanville and Kristen Taekman are real friends. Brandi took the time to visit Kristen and her husband Josh Taekman during a trip to New York City. Brandi also brought her boyfriend DJ Friese around.
Considering these two have been friends for years, I am sure they talked about more than just the Real Housewives franchise, but I assume (and hope) they at least talked a little bit about their former costars. Between the two of them I’m sure they know a whole lot about the people in the franchise.
Unfortunately for the ladies, the cast members of Real Housewives don’t always have the best boyfriends and husbands. Sometimes that makes for good TV and other times it’s just genuinely sad to watch and hear about. Nevertheless, there are Real Housewives husbands and fathers that you would never want to date if you had the chance – at least in my opinion.
These dudes are the worst of the worst: from the cheaters to the jail birds to the fame hungry. These are not the kind of men that you would want to be with, but they managed to end up with reality TV’s finest (and some of them did make for better reality TV viewing).

Sure, I “liked” Kristen Taekman when she was a Real Housewives of New York cast member, but if I’m keeping it real she added nothing to that show. That’s not necessarily an insult since most of the people who make good reality characters aren’t people you would actually want to spend time with in real life since they have an affinity for shit stirring. Nevertheless, I really did want her to stay on the show after her husband Josh Taekaman’s membership on Ashley Madison (a dating service for people who are married) became public. Unfortunately for me (and fortunately for Kristen) that did not happen and now the former RHONY star thinks she’s a relationship role model.
Wait. What? I don’t know what qualifies her (or anyone else) to be a relationship role model, let alone declare that. I do think it was good how she kept things private after the hack for the sake of her family, but I have no idea if she was really “keeping her private life private,” or if people just didn’t care since she wasn’t on reality TV anymore. But anyway, Kristen is opening up about it now.
