'RHONY' Kristen Taekman's Husband Josh Had Active Ashley Madison Account for Years

Boy, whoever is behind the Ashley Madison hacking seems to be targeting reality stars because of the thousands of users who have had their information leaked on the dark web, reality stars are the names that are first being made public. Josh Taekman will be familiar to fans of The Real Housewives of New York, as he spent much of last season putting his wife, Kristen Taekman down while Bravo's cameras rolled. After coming off as a real douche Taekman decided not to appear on camera much at all this season but he is still catching more headlines than his wife did thanks to being an Ashley Madison account holder for years.

Apparently way back in June of 2011 Taekman signed up for an account using the same email attached to his official Twitter handle. Between then and June of 2014 Taekman paid for 62 transactions, making him an active user. At first when confronted with proof that he was caught the Eboost founder tried to say that he had never heard of the upscale cheating site and that his credit card must have been stolen.

That didn't wash and a few hours later he came clean, sort of, saying, "I signed up for the site foolishly and ignorantly with a group of friends and I deeply apologize for any embarrassment or pain I have brought to my wife and family, We both look forward to moving past this and getting on with our lives." 

Signing up for a site generally doesn't include completing more than 60 paid transactions. Taekman may be trying to sweep this under the rug in order to move on quickly but do you think Kristen will do the same? Coming off of this past season of RHONY there were rumors that she wouldn't be asked back for a third go round because she had no story line. Obviously that has changed quite literally over night!
