“Family Karma” star Anisha Ramakrishna is keeping reality TV real.

The Bravo star says that her openness about the process of freezing her eggs on Season 1 of the Bravo series wasn’t a calculated move.

“I did that during Season 1 unintentionally,” she tells Page Six, laughing. “People are like, ‘Did you do it for the show?’ I’m like, ‘No. I turned 36.’ I turned 36 two weeks before we started filming. That was the catalyst.”

“I wanted to share it,” she added. “And of course being from a conservative family, my mom was like, ‘I don’t know if I want you to talk about that because it’s a medical topic and it’s also very personal.’ So there was a little bit of a decision-making process that had to happen with me and my mom because my mom is also like my ‘momager.’”

Ultimately, her mom’s views wound up reinforcing her decision further.

“She also didn’t know much about it,” Ramakrishna said. “You know, they’re a different generation. They didn’t freeze their eggs. If you didn’t have kids in her day, then you just didn’t have them. They didn’t have these options. And so that’s kind of why I wanted to share my story, because — I sound like a princess — I was like, ‘Wait, I’m a supermodel. I’m smart. Why am I single? Why am I freezing my eggs?’

“And so I wanted to share my story of, like, I’m freezing my eggs. I’m all about being a power female and giving zero Fs and here you see me being really vulnerable. Like, I couldn’t believe I had to do this.”

Of course, Ramakrishna wishes she had listened to her aunties sooner now that she has baby fever.

“So many of the aunties told me to freeze my eggs four years ago, and I didn’t listen,” she quipped. “Yeah, they know what’s up.”

“That’s why when I see people saying, like I did in my 20s, ‘If it happens, it happens’ — you don’t know what’s going to happen,” she added. “You don’t know that you might change your mind. And that’s why I encourage anyone to freeze their eggs. Hopefully, you’re in your thirties, twenties, you should freeze your eggs even if you’re in a serious relationship. I was in one and look.”

“People talk about the financial burden of it,” she concluded. “And I said, if I can go on a vacation, if I can get Botox, if I can go buy a handbag, then there are payment plans. You can freeze your eggs!”

“Family Karma” returns to Bravo on Wednesday, June 2 at 9 p.m. ET.
