Kristen Taekman Reflects On The Ashley Madison Scandal And Weighs In On RHONY Drama!

Kristen Taekman left The Real Housewives of New York City after appearing for two seasons. During a recent interview, the Pop of Color designer is reflecting on her reality television days as a Bravolebrity as well as the Ashley Madison scandal she found herself in after her husband Josh was included in the Ashley Madison leak, last summer.

When asked how she feels about the Ashley Madison, Taekman said the following:

"Looking back, I know my truth, and our truth, and our relationship," the mother-of-two told Entertainment Tonight. "I just feel like I'm not on a reality TV show anymore, and I don't have to explain it to anybody. So, that's kind of how I'm leaving it."

When asked if the 39-year-old model missed the Bravo reality series, she joked that she was just “too normal” for reality TV.

“I loved every minute of it,” Kristen admits. “I just don't think I really fit in! And I think that's OK … You only want so much normal. Two years of normal, people can take, but then they're like, where's the crazy, you know? She needs to drink more!”



But just because Kristen’s done being a “real housewife,” that doesn't mean she’s not still a fan of the franchise. The star confesses she’s watching the new season of RHONY.

“I just, I left off with them, so I kind of wanted to see where they picked up,” Kristen says. “I felt like I was still sort of part of it, kind of … You still feel part of it, but you're removed and it's, like, fun to see what all the girls are doing, but without the drama.”

“Josh and I were watching it, and there was a moment where I was like, ‘Oh my gosh!’” Kristen continues. “He was like, 'Oh my god, that's crazy! I can't wait to get through this commercial.’ But at the same time, I said to him, that's her life! That's real.”

While she doesn’t long for the real-life drama, there are parts of the show Kristen cops to missing.

“It was sort of like a sorority,” she shares. “You have this group of girlfriends, and you see each other all the time ... it was a cool moment … we were always getting together all the time and doing really fun things.”

“It was kind of nice to get together with girlfriends five to six times a week for five months,” Kristen adds. “Like, when else do you get to do that? Dressing up, having fun, doing fun makeup, cool hair. It was great.”
