Kristen Taekman: 11 Fun Facts About RHONY's New Star

Who knew the new 'Wife has an obsession with Elvis Presley and tattoos?

On the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New York City, the ladies will be joined by a new face: Kristen Taekman. Born in Connecticut and a working model since age 16, she is a mother of two children (Cash, 5, and Kingsley, 2) and happily married to her husband of ten years, Josh. She's also a successful entrepreneur: in 2009, she launched a line of high-end greeting card boxes called 2nd Street Press.

Kristen's approach to life as a wife and mom in New York City is simple: "I tell it like it is," she says. Which is sure to make for some amazing television when RHONY returns March 11 at 9p ET/PT.
