In some rather not so shocking news… Real Housewives of New York City cast member Kristen Taekman announced earlier today that she would not be returning to the Reality TV show next season. Kristen Taekman was only on the show for two seasons… and well let’s just say she wasn’t the best housewife… or nearly even a good housewife. During her first season, maybe she related with some fans…but by her second season… we all just wanted her gone!
Kristen Taekman debuted on the Real Housewives of New York in 2014. She was brought onto the show by her good friend Heather Thomson, who also announced her departure from RHONY earlier this year. Kristen was slightly entertaining at first but then… she really just became annoying. I’m honestly convinced that they only reason producers brought her back this year was because of the ratings increase they saw when Ramona Singer threw a glass at Kristen Taekman’s face last year.
Kristen Taekman really needs to learn to not use as many facial expressions as she does, honestly that was the main reason I never liked Kristen. Taekman who is a former model, would express her emotions and/or opinions using her facial expressions. While at first it was mildly entertaining, we already have Ramona Singer on the show using her crazy eyes to draw us in. Seriously all Kristen ever did on the show was bitch and moan…. about everything. The skys blue, I want a baby, your not worshipping me…. seriously everything.
What is surprising to me is that producers are actually allowing the housewives to walk away before they fire them. We reported months ago the producers didn’t want to bring Kristen or Heather back…. so what do they do? Instead of just firing them like they usually do, they allowed the housewives “to walk away” and of course “on their own terms.”
Let’s be real here, Kristen Taekman didn’t decide to leaving the Real Housewives of New York City…. she was fired. Kristen was so irrelevant last season that I forgot she was even a main cast member. The only drama Kristen was involved in, was something that she created in an attempt to stay relevant. She fought with Bethenny Frankel over the choice of words the SkinnyGirl mogul uttered about her nail polish color. It was completely stupid, annoying and irrelevant.
Kristen Taekman didn’t walk away from the Real Housewives of New York, it walked away from her. She’s probably the most relevant housewife in the history of the franchise and I am certainly happy to see her go! Kristen sent out a press release today claiming that she decided to walk away so she could concentrate on her family and her businesses. We wish her the best of luck in all her business ventures, as long as she promises never to return to our TV screens!
