Real Housewives of New York City star Heather Thomson is speaking out about her friends Josh and Kristen Taekman and how they have been making headlines for Josh’s alleged participation on the Ashley Madison website.
â€œThe Ashley Madison thing is unfortunate because Josh is completely innocent,â€ Thomson told US Weekly. â€œIf you knew Josh the way I know him, youâ€™d be completely like, â€˜Of course he would sign up for that with this buddies!â€™ Thatâ€™s a total Josh thing to do! He has a very fraternity side to him that I love.â€
â€œKristen is a trooper and taking it like a trooper,â€ Heather adds. â€œJosh took it like a trooper [too] for the first season of the show when he was made out to look like such a douche when heâ€™s not.â€
â€œTheyâ€™re going to be fine. They are my friends for life. I count them among my dearest friends. There is nothing but love there,â€ she says.
The site also reports that Thomson is leaving the show, although Heather has yet to confirm her departure. “She wants to focus full-time on her business, Yummie, her family, and expanding into the health and nutrition arena,” a source revealed. â€œThe cons of doing the show far outweigh the pros at this point, and what the show has become donâ€™t fit what she wants to be doing. She did it to promote her business and it devolved into ridiculous fights over the ridiculous antics of some unstable women.”
