The Ashley Madison leak fallout continues on. It’s not just Josh Duggar, government officials, and random civilian husbands getting busted for having accounts with the cheater website. Now it has filtered on down to the Bravolebrities. Real Housewives of New York star Kristen Taekman’s husband Josh Taekman is the latest person to be outed for having an account and making multiple payments to the site.
Earlier today when the news broke, Josh vehemently denied that the account was his own. When the Daily Mail ran the story, showing proof that Josh had over 60 transactions with the affair site, he told them someone else had to be using his information. Josh told them, “I don’t understand. There’s not a shot in hell that I’m a subscriber. I have no knowledge of that this is the first I’ve ever heard of it. This is crazy. I saw it on the TV the other day about the security breach and we were laughing about it. It is what it is but somebody is definitely fraudulently using my name and number.”
As the day went on Josh changed his tune, maybe realizing that NO ONE was buying his denial story and he decided to come clean.
Josh issued another statement tonight admitting signing up, but downplaying the situation. “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.” Josh doesn’t admit if he actually had any affairs behind Kristen’s back.
It’s looking like our first impressions of Josh were spot on. And maybe it’s why he steered clear from being filmed much this past season. Kristen may say he’s not a d-bag, but she definitely deserves better. And this has to touch a nerve with her BFF Brandi Glanville who knows a bit about what it’s like to be hitched to a guy who’s less than truthful.
Daily Mail has copies of some of Josh’s many transactions you can check out.
