Bravo's newest #Housewife dishes on #mommyreality, being an Elvis #superfan, and joining the wild world of #RHONY.

on Mar 7

Hi! OK first off this is my first blog post ever -- so cut me some slack!

Anyhoo, here we go. Be nice! I am the new girl, the actual Real Housewife. I am not a princess or a Countess, or a rich divorcee, or a fashion designer, a writer, or an entrepreneur. I am actually just me; sweet, little Kristen from Connecticut, the lucky girl that fell into modeling and met Prince Charming and is now living happily ever after in Tribeca -- until I met all these crazy ladies. . .

The tagline. . .OK people. I am a funny girl, at least I like to think so. I don’t like to take myself too seriously. LIFE IS TOO SHORT! It's a joke between Josh and I. I will do something dumb, usually related to spelling, and I will say I am not the sharpest tool in the shed, etc. Let's not take this so seriously. IT'S FUNNY. I am not the sharpest tool in the shed -- but I am not the dullest either.

A bit about me: I have two kids and a hubby, and have been married for almost 10 years. Besides scooping ice cream in high school, I've only ever modeled. I still model and did through both pregnancies. I am obsessed with Elvis (will tell you more later, he pops up a bunch this Season). I am from Farmington, CT. My parents are still happily ever after. My younger bro lives in CT and has beautiful twin boys. (Karma's a bitch.) Key West is my home away from home, always has been, always will be. Tweet me with more questions @kristentaekman. 

Carole's photo shoot: Listen I have been on a million photo shoots. I think that with Carole being nervous and admitting that she hates having her picture taken, it's great that Heather was giving direction. That's what Heather does for a living. She’s good at it. Holla that. #BOSS.
