Kristen Taekman gave fans an inside look at her career as a fashion writer and model during her two years on the Real Housewives of New York. Like most of the women in Bravo’s hit reality franchise, Kristen also experience her share of drama on the show. It has been several years since Kristen appeared in front of the cameras, but she recently opened up about where she is now, and which cast members she keeps in touch with today.
It may surprise fans to learn that Kristen talks to a bunch of her former co-stars, including Ramona Singer, Dorinda Medley, Carole Radziwill and Luann de Lesseps. In fact, Kristen had nothing but good things to say about the RHONY cast, though she did say that she could have been a little meaner when she was on the show.

“I talk to pretty much all the ladies, I would say. I saw Dorinda and Ramona recently at an event, I see Carole quite a bit, I saw Luann’s show which was amazing…” Kristen shared.
According to All About The Real Housewives, Kristen still follows RHONY and was sad to see Radziwill and Bethenny Frankel go through a falling out. She also loves everything about Tinsley Mortimer and feels like she has infused new life into the series. When it comes to her time on RHONY, Kristen has zero regrets about how it all played out and still considers it one of the best experiences of her career.
Following her exit from the world of reality TV, Kristen and her husband, Josh Taekman, were hit by a huge cheating scandal. Josh’s name was entangled in the Ashley Madison hack, something that Kristen says only made their marriage stronger. The two have now been married for 15 years and share two children: Kingsley and Cassius.

Although the scandal would have made headlines on the show, Kristen was glad it happened after her departure because she was able to keep it private.
New episodes of the Real Housewives of New York air Thursday nights on Bravo.
