Season 6 of The Real Housewives of New York City is premiering next Tuesday. But before we get embroiled in all the Big Apple drama, let's take an inside look at the fabulous homes of three glamorous 'wives.
First up, Aviva Drescher takes us through her stunning Manhattan townhouse, starting with her beautifully decorated yellow and gray dining room/living room. Being the health nut that she is, her kitchen tour naturally takes a detour through all of the vitamins that she takes. And then, of course, there's the enormous living room that she decided to turn into a master bedroom, complete with a full set of couches at the foot of the bed.
Aviva's kids have their own floor and each of their bedrooms has been decorated to their own tastes. Size-wise, let's just say it's likely you've lived in a NYC studio that is way smaller than three-year-old Sienna Drescher's bedroom.
Also, there's the giant euphemistic piece of artwork that is framed and on display on her stair landing. "It is a popsicle, folks," Aviva clarifies. "Stop thinking dirty. It is a popsicle."
Next up, Heather Thomson takes us through a tour of her vacation home in the Berkshires region of Massachussetts. "It's where me and my family spend our time away from New York and in gorgeous nature. What I love best about it is that I can open the doors and outrun the kids," she says.
Heather's no-shoes-inside house was built with concrete slabs that are cool in the summer and warm in the winter. She plans to eventually build a main house and a barn, and turn the house that's there now into a pool house. The master bedroom will then turn into the workout room and the master bathroom will be a spa room (it already has a steam shower!).
Heather's stunning view is complete with a funky antique Indonesian ceremonial structure and, of course, a hammock.
And, finally, there's new Housewife Kristen Taekman's TriBeCa crib where the kitchen is centered around her tea kettle and toaster oven. "Sonja's not the only one that cooks in a toaster oven," she says teasingly.
Kristen also gets creative with child-proofing the glass counters of her kitchen using tape and some dish towels. And speaking of children, Kristen lets it be known that a lot has happened on the family couch…including "making two babies."
And hey, for anyone with space issues in their own apartment, check out Kristen's creative solution: a walk-in closet makes a mighty fine nursery.
Which of the three homes would be most your style? Tell us in the comments.
