Real Housewives of New York City star Kristen Taekman is taking to her blog to tell HER side of the story about not being invited to Bethenny’s birthday dinner. Kristen explains she didn’t understand why she was not included in the event because Bethenny knew all the ladies were hanging out together, and explains she felt left out. Taekman also gives a shoutout to Heather Thomson for always having her back.
Kristen writes, “Carole is so hilarious. I love that she met Adam, hit it off, and they are hanging having fun. You go, girl. You donâ€™t owe anyone an explanation.
I have to agree under 35/over 75 seems like a great way to go when dating. The Halloween puking in a pedicab thing is OMG, too funny! He held her hair back out of the way! #truelove
I actually didnâ€™t know that Adam dated Luâ€™s niece. It seems to me that Carole just fell into this. The feeling is mutual, and I would have to agree itâ€™s a bit awkward to tell Lu too soon. Carole doesnâ€™t even know whatâ€™s happening at this point!
Bethenny’s birthday dinner seemed like a lot of fun, LOL. I didnâ€™t know that she shared the day with her mom, that seems like somewhat of a sore subject. I do remember hearing years ago that she hated birthdays. I love that Sonja is with her German boy. I think it’s nuts how these women just keep inviting other men as guests–they clearly didnâ€™t get the plus-one only invite. OMG, the young boy not knowing Jordache jeans?! How is that even possible?
Cheers to expecting the unexpected!
The phone call with Heather catching up and then finding out that I wasnâ€™t invited was interesting, and very much what happens. Simple question: Gee, why wasnâ€™t I invited? Listen, anytime you are in a group and you are not invited, I don’t care what anyone says, itâ€™s a bummer. I was last with all the girls in the Hamptons. I felt that we had a nice time at Bethennyâ€™s brunch. Last I saw, Bethenny and Ramona had a huge fight.
I was just surprised that Bethenny and Ramona made up so fast and were hanging out already? Thatâ€™s all. I get it–B and I are not besties. When you do meet a new group of women, sometimes itâ€™s nice to include them all, especially when random young dates get to tag along? The guest list was clearly not that tight. Oh wellâ€¦thereâ€™s always next yearâ€™s birthday!
Dorinda and Hannah and Dorinda and John. This all seems very complicated, stressful, and a lot of work. Dorinda is really so lovely. Itâ€™s hard to believe that she leads a double life. How hard is that? Unless John is really not good for her, it seems that Hannah has to allow her mother to be happy.
Ramona and AOA.
This restaurant is in my â€˜hood, just a few blocks away, great spot. Itâ€™s really funny that Ramona is an investor in a sports bar. WOW things really have changed!
Itâ€™s interesting how Ramona says that she did so much for Mario and didnâ€™t realize how much work he was. Itâ€™s nice she is taking time for herself, she really deserves it. As she said, â€œTrying to look on the brighter side.â€
Ramona and Peter are both very, very flirtyâ€¦hmmm, more than just business??
Dorinda and John seem to love each other. But we are seeing so much fighting and bickering. I am betting that the making up for them is fun after the fighting.
Rebranding death. I hear Bethenny, â€œlate husbandâ€ does seem weird, but I think itâ€™s better than the alternatives, thatâ€™s for sure. When I heard about Anthonyâ€™s ashes, I became sooo emotional. I canâ€™t believe it, all that that must have stirred up in Carole all these years later. She told me that he would have gotten a kick out of it all, thatâ€™s the kind of personality he had.
I am not losing sleep over not being invited to Bethanyâ€™s birthday. I was just confused as to why everyone else was invited, and I wasnâ€™t. The last time I saw her, things seemed good between us. She knows we all hang out together, you would think she would say, â€œUh, well, now that everyone else is coming, whatâ€™s another two? I should invite Dorinda and Kristen.â€ Right? But no biggie, she didnâ€™t even think of it, because we arenâ€™t friends. Little side noteâ€¦ uh, thatâ€™s how you get to know people! I invite you to do things, you invite meâ€¦no harm, no loss. Heather is a great friend for having my back! All good. #staytuned”
