Kristen Taekman In Workout Gear Says "Pilates Keeps Me Going"

Here are her wellness tips.

The Real Housewives of New York star Kristen Taekman is still modeling at 47—no wonder she takes such good care of herself. Taekman shared a video of herself wearing head-to-toe pink workout gear, doing exercises on a reformer Pilates machine. "Pilates is what keeps me going…. for real you guys 🤍#pilates #housewife #model #summer #LA ," she captioned the post. "I love it!" a fan commented. Here's how Taekman is living her best life after moving from New York to Los Angeles.


Reformer Pilates

Taekman swears by reformer Pilates sessions to keep her toned, fit and strong. "Pilates can make you aware of your body and your experience inside your body," Sarah Wilcoxon, associate professor of dance and comprehensive Pilates certified instructor at Missouri State University, tells Authority Magazine. "This is excellent news for folks (like me) who know that mindfulness and meditation are good for mental health but have trouble sitting still."


Silk Pillowcase


Taekman sleeps on a silk pillowcase to protect her hair and skin. "The best beauty advice I've ever gotten is to sleep with a silk pillowcase," she told PEOPLE. "It's good for your hair, it's good for your skin and it's anti-aging. When you're smooshed up all night on a cotton pillow, it causes wrinkles and messes up your hair. When I travel I bring silk scarves to throw on the pillow." 


Light Botox

Taekman is careful about any cosmetic treatments on her face. "I started getting very light Botox when I was 35," she told PEOPLE. "Just a little bit once or twice a year. And then I get a facial once a month at Frederic Fekkai. It's like hitting refresh on my skin." 


RHONY Legacy

Taekman was thrilled to return for The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip RHONY Legacy. "You know what the best part is? I'm truly just myself," she told "The first time around, just to paint the picture: it was Season Six, I was the youngest by far, these girls had been doing it for a long time, they were off the air for a season, they were scurrying to cast, they cast me, I was the only new girl that season, I was going into a machine that had been running for so long and I was a little intimidated!"


Beverly Hills Housewives?

Taekman is unsure about possibly joining The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills if asked. "I keep getting that question and I would never say never but I'm just trying to ride this rollercoaster and enjoy it for what it is," she told "I think the Beverly Hills [cast] are amazing and it's such a strong cast so I can't imagine what that would even look like. But they're lovely women and I'd be honored to be considered!"
