Bravo is heading back to the Big Apple with a brand new season of ‘The Real Housewives of New York City’ and a new housewife! HollywoodLife.com chatted EXCLUSIVELY with Kristen Taekman who joins the cast on tonight’s premiere.

Kristen Taekman is about to be faced with five new frenemies and a whirlwind of drama! The 36-year-old model and mother of two joins The Real Housewives of New York City cast tonight, but does she get along with all of the ladies? Keep reading to see what Kristen EXCLUSIVELY told us about her new clique.

Are The Housewives Jealous Of Newbie, Kristen Taekman?

She’s tall. She’s gorgeous. She’s young. She’s funny. She’s wealthy. And her tagline is, “I may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but I’m pretty.” In other words, Kristen Taekman sounds like a perfect addition to Manhattan’s socialites.

Just in the first episode, Kristen’s fellow city dwellers drop hints of envy with NYC alum Ramona Singer exclaiming, “She’s this tall, gorgeous blonde. How could you miss her!” Returning housewife Carole Radziwill also chimes in with, “Not only is she tall and pretty, but she’s weird!”

Meet The New Housewife: Kristen Taekman

Now that we know what Kristen’s cast mates think of her, what does she have to say about them? The blonde bombshell EXCLUSIVELY gabs with us about her big debut.

How did you get involved with the series?

“I have been friends with Heather [Thomson] for years through my husband Josh. I went with Brandi [Glanville] from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to a party in NYC, and bumped into Heather and Andy [Cohen]. They were looking for someone new for NYC and I guess I was in the right place at the right time.”

Did you have any reservations about joining the show? 

“Life is short so I say live it — meet new people and have fun. Why not? Nothing to lose! I find that at 36, woman tend to get stuck in their ways and it’s harder and harder to meet new people, especially girlfriends. My daughter was only one when we started filming. Filming really helped me to get out of my mommy cave, back into my skinny jeans and back out on the town!”

Are you worried about becoming a public figure, and not having your privacy anymore? 

“I am really not thinking about any of that. I can’t imagine that things will change for me. The day someone says, ‘Look, that’s Kristen Taekman,’ I will turn my head and say, ‘Where, where?'”

Which ladies do you get along with, and with whom do you fight the most?

“Heather, Carole and LuAnn [de Lesseps]. I have my disagreements with several women, as you will see on this season.”

Are you all friends off-camera?

“Yes — with almost everyone. You can’t spend four months together almost every day and not build some strong friendships!”

What are you most excited for viewers to learn about you? 

“I have a good sense of humor, am more than just a pretty face, the best mom I can be and a good wife — even without cooking for him! Most importantly, that I am real, real, real! What you see is what you get with me.”

HollywoodLifers, are you excited for RHONYC to return? And do you think Kristen will be a good fit with the cast?

I just got paid $5628 working off my laptop this month. And if you think that’s cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $8.1k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do….
