NEW YORK – January 8, 2014 – They’re back! Ready or not, here they come… Bravo Media announces the premiere of season six of “The Real Housewives of New York City” on Tuesday, March 11 at 9pm ET/PT. Back this season are Aviva Drescher, Sonja Morgan, Carole Radziwill, Ramona Singer, and Heather Thomson, who are joined by model and businesswoman Kristen Taekman as they navigate their hectic lifestyles of jam-packed social calendars, careers, relationships, children and the hustle and bustle of city living. Also returning in a recurring role this season is Countess LuAnn de Lesseps.
To whet fans’ appetites for the uptown/downtown drama, Bravo will be airing a 30-minute extended sneak peek at the new season on Monday, February 24 at 9pm ET/PT. Meet the new housewife… Kristen Taekman has been a working model since the age of 14, gracing the cover of magazines, walking the runways of Europe and the US, and serving as the face of many high profile commercial campaigns. In addition to modeling full-time, her keen business sense led her to launch her own successful line of high-end greeting card boxes called 2nd Street Press in 2009.
Born in Connecticut, Kristen is mother to five-year old son Cash and two-year old daughter Kingsley with her husband of 10 years Josh, co-founder of the natural energy supplement EBOOST. She stays in shape by keeping up with her children’s many school, social and extracurricular activities along with her disciplined pursuit of Pilates, JCORE fitness and an EBOOST a day. Kristen has a deep love for Elvis Presley and knows the lyrics to all of his songs.She also shows her admiration with a 4 foot x 5 foot painting of “The King” she displays in the hallway of her TriBeCa apartment. Kristen lives by her philosophy of “telling it like it is” because she has nothing to hide.
Sidebar: Today is actually Elvis’s birthday. I know this because I have three relatives born on January 8th.
This season follows the ladies as they mix business with pleasure, party like rock stars, summer in the Hamptons and allow their emotions to get the best of them any chance they get. Old rivalries will be reignited and new ones born, all while emotional twists and turns, surprise romantic encounters, and passionate arguments keep everyone guessing where people’s true loyalties lie. There is no shortage of outlandish moments and guttural laughs as the ladies find themselves as fish out of water when they leave the safety of Manhattan for more rustic locales like a cabin in the Berkshires and a “glamping” trip to Montana.
