Former Real Housewives of New York City star Kristen Taekman recently ran into Ramona Singer and Dorinda Medley at a midday get-together in the Big Apple thrown in honor of shoes, and the RHONY alum documented it all on her Instagram Stories. Could this mean that Taekman is returning to the popular Bravo show next season?
In addition to Taekman’s social media post, Medley also shared a pic of the three ladies on her own Instagram feed, and added the caption, “Reunited! How apt!” Earlier in the week, Taekman also documented her lunch with Bethenny Frankel, and all of these RHONY run-ins are causing fans to wonder if Taekman will be returning to the cast.

Even though she has spent some time with the RHONY ladies recently, Taekman has no plans to return to the show anytime soon. She exited in 2015 after two seasons, and she has said in the past that she does, on occasion, bump into her former co-stars every now and then.
“Kristen ran into Bethenny earlier this week while they were separately grabbing lunch,” an insider told PEOPLE Magazine. “They had some fun with one another on their Instagram Stories, but in no way is Kristen coming back to Housewives and filming anything. She’s busy being a mom and working on her businesses.”
A second source confirmed that Taekman was not filming with Frankel, and that makes a lot of sense because Taekman said after leaving the show that she didn’t miss filming at all. She says that she has a strong personality, and many times in her life she has met people that call her a “firecracker.” But, she couldn’t “get it out” when she was on RHONY, and she doesn’t want or need to.

Where am I off to you ask!? Ahhh, getting a cup of coffee of course! Ok so I have a question for you all….When should I stop drinking ice coffee and switch to hot?!? Is there some sort of unspoken rule? Is the pumpkin spice late as good as everybody says it is? Love my new coffee adventures! http://liketk.it/2xIQ2 #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKunder100
But her time on the reality show wasn’t all bad. The 41-year-old said that it was a lot like a sorority, but in a good way. And, there was something amazing about spending a ton of time with her girlfriends for two years. Taekman added that she cherished that time because later in life you get busy with kids, family, and work, so time with girlfriends is limited.
Even though she had fun during those two seasons, she still doesn’t miss the drama of being on the show. However, Kristen Taekman did learn that she should always truly speak her mind in everything, and she can bring that to every aspect of her life.
New episodes of Real Housewives of New York City will return to Bravo in Spring 2019.
