Barbara Kavovit Takes on Ramona Singer

We all knew that Barbara Kavovit, who runs Evergreen Construction, knows her way around a toolbox. But as it turns out, The Real Housewives of New York City friend also has a way with words. Did you know that Barbara is a published author?

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New York City on Peacock and catch up on the Bravo app

It's true! In a recent Instagram post, the construction pro shared a photo of herself curled up on the couch with a juicy-looking tome — her own! "60 days until my new novel 'Heels of Steel' is released," Barbara wrote.

According to Amazon, the novel tells the story of a builder named Bridget Steele, who works hard to stand out in her boys-club-type industry. "Armed with her designer hard hat and steel-toed stilettos, she's up for any challenge," the plot summary says. (Hm, whom does that sound like? Watch the clip above for a refresher on Barbara's take-no-prisoners attitude.) 

The novel has an early reader who might look familiar to you, too. Guess what Luann de Lesseps is reading as she hits the road for her Countess & Friends cabaret tour? 

We'll add this to our summer reading list, pronto — right beside My Word

Watch Barbara, Luann, and the rest of the RHONY ladies every Wednesday at 9/8c. Preview, below.
