Only in New York could you see Ramona Singer and Dorinda Medley running into one of The Real Housewives of New York City alums at a little midday get-together thrown in honor of shoes. The Big Apple duo ran into Kristen Taekman at the event — and Kristen documented the encounter on Instagram Stories, which even included a shout-out to this moment. And Dorinda also shared a little photo of the trio on her own Instagram feed with the caption: “Reunited!!” How apt!
When The Daily Dish caught up with Kristen in early 2017, she noted that she does, on occasion, “bump into people here and there” from her days on RHONY. As you might recall, the fashionista was a member of the crew for two seasons, exiting in 2015. She noted at that time how being on the show changed her life.
“The biggest lesson I learned just [is] really truly speaking your mind in everything,” she said at the time (more from Kristen in the video above). “And you can bring that into any aspect of your life, whether you’re in a cab and he’s going the wrong way and you really voice your opinion — ridiculous example. Or just being with a group of friends and somebody’s saying something and you just sort of disagreeing. I think before I probably really would have let that go and now I stand up a little straighter and get my Housewife on. It’s still in you; it doesn’t go away.”
