What did the Real Housewives say of Jersey star Kate Taylor?

Kate’s fights began shortly after her bitter breakup with her ex-husband.

In conversation with ED! She said, “I basically spent 18 months in bed with a terrible depression. I will never go back there again.

That was the lowest point in my life.

“I am the most sexual and tactile being in the world. If someone said to me, “What is your favorite past-time activity?” It used to try to get as much attention from my husband as possible. “

Kate’s marriage tragically ended after her ex-husband moved on with a younger woman.

How is it between Kate and her son?

Although things aren’t going well with her former partner, Kate works to improve her relationship with son Finn.
