The hot mom and model was convinced by Fellow Housewife Heather Thomson to go on the show. Although she’s been in the modeling industry since her teens you’ll be surprised to know she is a “real housewife”

“I work freelance in fashion as a model, and I don’t work every day. I drop my kids at school, I go to ballet with my daughter, and I go out with my husband at night to business events. I feel like I am an actual real housewife.”

But the blonde doesn’t entirely fit the mold –or else she wouldn’t be on the show huh –She revealed she doesn’t , won’t and can’t cook.

About her family she is a happily married woman, she currently lives in TriBeCa with her husband of 10 years Josh Taekman — co-founder of the natural energy supplement EBOOST.
