The Real Housewives of New York are not the average group of girls to be messed with. They all have their own opinions that are intertwined with robust personalities and a slew of choice word combinations. However, there seems to be one lady in particular who has been the brunt of soft-core bullying. The Real Housewives of New York star, Heather Thomson, defends her bullied friend and co-star, Kirsten Taekman, after saying that she often gets picked on the most by the other women on the show. Taekman does come off as a reserved and somewhat docile personality on the show, but Thomson assures that during the reunion special, Taekman is going to have a lot to fire back with.
Part one of The Real Housewives of New York reunion special kicked off last week with a more than explosive start. As per the usual Taekman did not have much to say but was often the brunt of attack with the other ladies. During the season, Taekman had fallouts with several of her co-stars. Bethenny Frankel had it out with the nail polish entrepreneur over, allegedly, speaking negatively about Frankel and her questionable approach to re-entering the group in an interview. Taekman then went to verbal blows with Sonja Morgan later in the season over a misunderstanding concerning a failed business venture of Morgan’s. Last season, Ramona Singer had an unpleasant encounter with the Pop of Color owner when she threw a glass of white wine at Taekman over an unwanted comment. Later in the same season, Singer threw yet another glass at Taekman, cutting her lip, out of, what Singer claims, was an annoyance of Taekman’s unneeded comments and actions.
Viewers often are split in opinion over Taekman’s presence on the show. Where some believe that her naive, yet, bubbly personality is quite enjoyable, others say that her storyline is more than boring and her inability to catch herself from saying certain things (inappropriate as they may come off) are the straws breaking the proverbial camel’s back. Thomson, however, is not known for being the quiet mouse. She has become a fan favorite, in great part, to her outspoken personality. She’s fun, honest, loyal, and perceivably very loving, even in her outspoken approach to things she does not agree with. The downside for many, however, is that Thomson often sticks her nose where it doesn’t belong for the sake of friendship. A fact that lead fans to believe that Thomson, co-star of The Real Housewives of New York, will always rush to defend a bullied friend no matter how great or small the attack. In the case of Taekman, this seems to be the case.
Although Thomson can not help herself from coming to the defense of her friends, she says that The Real Housewives of New York co-star will more than stand on her own during the reunion. Viewers did not see much of this bravado in Taekman during part one of the reunion but are hoping that come part two, Thomson’s claim stands true. One of the real housewives to speak on the matter is co-star and newbie, Dorinda Medley, agrees that the group often picks on Taekman for the most ridiculous of things, however, she too feels that the ‘pretty is smarter than you think’ tag liner is more than capable of holding her own.
With two more parts to The Real Housewives of New York reunion, fans are on the edge of their seats to hear about all the juicy drama that these ladies have to dish. Friendships are sure to be tested while others are definitely dead and done with. Thomson agrees that, as she hopes for things to be mended, she predicts that some of the ladies are going to regroup with the most unbelievable of sides. While some of the friendships will stay intact, others will be left on the reunion floor. The second half of the reunion airs Tuesday night on Bravo.
