Many of you may know Kristen Taekman from the television show “Real Housewives of New York.” She’s the beautiful blond model who left the show after only 2 years. Taekman 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!”
Since departing RHONY, Kristen has become a business woman. In addition to her incredible modeling portfolio (Taekman’s been modeling for nearly 20 years), she’s now a successful blogger, mother of 2 and isn’t showing any signs of slowing down.
In fact, we had a chance to talk to Kristen for about 20 minutes and discussed what she’s up to now, her life on reality television, and being a mother. It turns out that Taekman may have in fact been a little too “normal” for reality TV because what we found was an incredibly down to earth, dedicated mother and entrepreneur who sounds like she’s got life somewhat figured out (though she’ll be the first to admit she doesn’t).
Taekman not only embraces turning 40 but she’s learned to live in every single moment and enjoy it, for better or for worse. To find out some of secrets in life, business (and beauty) have a listen to our interview with her.
