The Real Housewives Of New York City Season 6 Premiere Party

by Jim K

On Tuesday, March 11, 2014, I had the honor of attending the #RHONY Premiere Party hosted by New York’s newest Real Housewife Kristen Taekman and her husband Josh.  The event was held in New York at the Bleecker Street Arts Club.  For those of you who have not read Kristen’s bio at, she is a huge Elvis Presley fan.  Huge.  HUGE.  As soon as you entered the event space, you felt the hunka hunka burning love vibe. The bar was provided by Three Olives Elvis Presley Coconut Water Vodka with signature drinks that combined Elvis songs with #RHONY.  P.S. The “Love Me Kristen” – delicious!  Kristen may be the new girl, but she made sure Ramona Pinot Grigio was available. I mean, we all know what happens when Ramona doesn’t have her pinot….  

Downstairs was the step and repeat where people were taking pictures, interviewing cast members, and mixing and mingling. A couple Twitter friends flew to New York to attend the premiere with me and I think I can speak for Julie (@realityjulie) and Elizabeth (@the_rhlp) when I say we had a blast! As three former Bravoholics, we were beyond excited for the opportunity to meet some of the #RHONY cast members and see the premiere episode with the Housewives. Kristen was a wonderful hostess and thanked us for traveling so far to attend her party. She looked amazing in her green dress, no?  

We also ran into Carole Radziwill and Heather Thomson.  Countess LuAnn made an appearance at the event. It looks like she traded in the Count for a King, y’all! 

Around 9 p.m. everyone gathered upstairs where a large screen was set up to view the first episode of Season 6.  Even though we were in the same room live tweeting with each other, it was like we were at home…..

….except we were sitting across from the Housewives…in the same room…watching the show and tweeting!

Harry was there too, but he really didn’t seem to care. Probably because Sonja was in Austin for #WWHL.

Mario was not at the event and Ramona’s fingers were bare.  Could this be Mario 2.0? 

Kristen and Josh provided an assortment of blue suede shoe colored snacks, as well as individual boxes of both gourmet popcorn and candy.  There were Elvis CDs and sunglasses as well as samples of @EBOOST (Josh’s company that makes natural energy boosters) for guests to take home.

It was an amazing experience to be invited to the event and to meet some of the cast members. The ones I met came across in real life the same way they do on the show – very nice, polite, and classy. Remember – they live in New York so do not cross them.  From the preview for the rest of the season, it looks like there will be more bumps in the road than the Pennsylvania Turnpike.  You could absolutely tell which of them have genuine and sincere friendships by how they interacted with each other. As for the others, tune in to @BravoTV on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST to find out what happens!   

P.S. Special thanks again to Eric, Carole, and Kristen for making this happen! Same time, same place next year? #CallMe
