Newcomer to the Real Housewives of New York City Kristen Taekman discussed her second breast augmentation at the reunion earlier in the summer. She recently showcased her new curves while on vacation at the family’s California home.
Kristen had revealed on a podcast the breast implants are actually her second set and were a present from her husband, EBOOST co-founder Josh Taekman, in celebration of the couple’s ninth wedding anniversary.
“First year is diamond, somewhere along there is paper and nine years is silicone,” the RHONY star joked during Brandi Glanville’s Podcast One show.
“I’ve had two kids and breastfed. I needed new ones. They look and feel so much better,” she told Glanville.
Before going under the knife the first time, Kristen revealed that she tried temporary devices to make her breasts appear to be larger.
“I had the cutlets for the longest time. I burned those puppies the second I got the real thing,” she laughed.
Although Kristen has talked about her new presents, this was the first time that she really showed them off. The Daily Mail recently posted pictures of Kristen having some playtime in the pool with her kids while sporting a small striped bikini that showed off her new implants.
Kristen’s new implants are said to be a size larger than her last pair, but the breast implants are still reasonable and look natural on her fit model’s body. While some Real Housewives become known for having oversized implants, Kristen appears to have stuck with a size that looks fairly natural on her frame. However, she will likely now show more cleavage at fancy events than on a casual pool day with the kids.
Because of her thin frame, Kristen could have run the risk of having very obvious bolted on and round implants, but her results are pretty natural and look to have settled in nicely because they aren’t set too high on her chest, nor do they look like they are “running away” from each other with too much space between them.
Rumor had it a while back that the entire current cast of RHONY was going to be fired in favor of finding new ladies, but reportedly that is no longer the case. For her part, Kristen certainly brought plenty of drama and interest, largely because much of her storyline focused on her tumultuous relationship with her husband, Josh.
Kristen revealed to Ok! Magazine that she feels doing the season was like marital therapy, as she didn’t realize before how badly they argue.
“After every episode, viewers would go on Twitter and tell me to divorce my husband. You’ve gotta love Twitter, right? I am really bummed about how he was portrayed. People are calling him a douche bag, and it really hurt him. He is not a douche bag. The show made him seem much harsher than he really is. Josh is an amazing guy, and a wonderful father. We learned, for example, that his humor is super dry and it really doesn’t translate to television. He was like, Oh my gosh, if we do season two, I’m changing my sense of humor. And I’m like, Don’t you dare! It’s what I love about you. I don’t want him to change.”none
