Kristen Taekman Opens Up About Her Relationship With Bethenny Frankel!

Kristen Taekman and Bethenny Frankel didn't haven't exactly hit it off this season on the Real Housewives of New York City. The pair definitely had quiet a rough start, but that doesn't mean that Kristen can't empathize with her Skinnygirl co-star. "I have absolutely no ill feelings towards Bethenny," she tells She Knows.

"How could I? Both of us have not really had the opportunity to get to know each other that much. She is going through a lot right now, but I look forward to hopefully getting to know her when all the dust settles. Until then, I want to give her all the time and space she needs."

Kristen further explains that the dynamics and relationships within their friend group are just like the ones that everyone else has.

"To be honest, I haven't ever felt 'boxed out'," she says. "I think that in every group of friends, there are closer friendships within that larger group. I think that half of the women are going through some rough times, whether that's divorce, finance or other things. As far as divorce is concerned, I can imagine that I'm not the first one the women will go to for advice, since I have never experienced it — for which I am grateful."

With that in mind, she does value her relationships with the women she feels closest to in the clique.

"I am the closest to Heather, Carole, and LuAnn," she says. "The three of us hit it off immediately. While Heather and I have been friends for years, the bond was instant with the other women." She later adds, "Each of the other women have their own special qualities. Some are more loyal, others more sympathetic and all of them have the capacity to be great friends. The beauty [is that] real friendships have those ups and downs. Ours just happen to be televised."
