Kristen on Surviving Her First Season

Despite Ramona's dismissal as the "new girl," Kristen sounds off on Aviva, Heather's authenticity and her first year as a Housewife.

By Kristen Taekman

Aviva is always literally putting her foot in her mouth or maybe should I say on the table!

How to Watch

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

"At least I am not 50?"

"Well I thought she was older?"


Hmmmmm. . .I am not sure saying you are older is ever a compliment unless it was targeted at a six-year-old kid.

Ramona nailed it, Aviva has no sense of humor. Don't you all just want to see Aviva let her guard down, let loose, have fun and not take everything so darn literally? Because I know I do. "This isn't the hood it’s the Hamptons!" What? Heather acts like a gang member?!? Aviva knows nothing about the hood. . .please!

Hello, Heather, is the most authentic person I know. She has her own style and way about her that makes her Heather -- and we all love her for that!

Ramona saying that I am the new girl, dismissing me, and saying that my voice doesn’t matter and that no one will listen to me. Wow. . .OK. . . I know where I stand #staytuned. 


Well there you go, I survived my first Season of RHONY. It's over. No more blogging and live tweeting. It will be a bittersweet void in my life not doing it, and I will miss you all and really appreciated the opportunity to have this experience in my life. We will all stay tuned in for the future.

Check in with me on my Instagram and Twitter I will be posting daily @kristentaekman. Also check out for my first season scoop on RHONY. Enjoy the rest of your summer!!!
