"My experience during my time on RHONY was fantastic and I made some great new friends," Taekman says. "At this time in my life, I have decided to concentrate on my family and my new business ventures Pop Of Color nail polish and Last Night's Look, my fashion blog. I will remain a Housewife and part of an amazing franchise forever and that is what is important."
Taekman stirred up waves when she first joined RHONY during season, getting involved in a water fight with Ramona Singer. Her second, and seemingly final, season proved less eventful.
While Taekman has announced her exit after two seasons, a source close to production confirms that Bethenny Frankel is back for season eight. She and returning housewife, Carole Radzwill, already started filming.
