Kristen Taekman is taking to her Bravo Blog this week to discuss her fight with Ramona Singer on The Real Housewives of New York City. Kristen shares that she is deeply sorry Ramona had a troubled childhood, but say that does not excuse her behavior.
Kristen writes, “Where do I start?
Who knew Lu was a nurse? Thank goodness for Lu. I have to say I felt a lot better knowing her credentials.
Ramona kept saying it was not her intention to hit/cut me with a wine glass. . .I’m curious what exactly was your intention when you threw that glass at my face it was much more than a knee-jerk reaction? I would LOVE to know. Almost a year later, I am still wondering???
I certainly did not provoke her to hurt me — that was not MY intention. I was trying to be playful and have fun with “friends” in a lake, surrounded by water on a hot day and I splashed her, and she threw a glass at my face and cut me.
BTW last time I checked water is not a sharp object! And did you notice Sonja and Carole also got wet and they didn’t even flinch or have any type of knee-jerk reaction.
I want you all to know, including Ramona, that I am terribly sorry for what has happened in her past and in her childhood and any issues she has with her mom and dad. I also want you all to know that it is not OK to use that as an excuse for bad or violent behavior. . . She clearly needs therapy. She has got some major issues that need to be worked out.
The craziest part of this whole thing is that she seems to have very little remorse!
That night when she tried to apologize to me, I couldn’t even deal I was sooo angry. Her attempt at an apology was so half-assed. #overit #elvistakemeaway
Elvis Elvis Elvis! Just watching Elvis arrive and sing to me gives me such butterflies!I was so surprised and soooo happy that Heather did that for me! What a great friend she is! She is amazing.
Great Barrington, NY, is a place that I grew up visiting and across the street from the restaurant where we ate that Saturday night was where I got my first Elvis poster. It used to be an antique store 20 years ago, and my dad bought me a Roustabout original movie poster. The rest is history, and Elvis has been with me ever since. Heather of course knew all of this and her having the impersonator that weekend was perfect in so many ways! Holla Momma! #whathappendsintheberkshiresstaysintheberkshires
Breakfast the morning of the hike in the woods before Ramona left was sooo awkward! Ramona was up and ready so early. I thought it was very suspicious. . . Why was she in a such a good mood and then all of a sudden during the walk in the woods she has a panic attack when some trees and shrubs reminded her of her past and low — and low and behold she had to leave and ironically there was a plane waiting for her at the nearby airport — as if her good friend just conveniently happened to be in the Berkshires at that tiny little airport. Not that I am surprised at all that she flew back and left us all in the Berkshires.
Sonja, poor Sonja, gets left in the dust by her BFF. Although I scratch my head because why would Ramona just up and leave Sonja with out saying goodbye — nevermind without taking Sonja with her? Sonja open your eyes!
Copake Lake: We had so much fun that day. You could see all of us just relaxed into our vacation. We swam, we drank, and we let loose and finally started to have fun.”
