It was previously reported that the Ashley Madison plague was spread towards the Real Housewives of New York City stars Kristen and Josh Taekman as there was a recent leak of users on the site, Josh being one of them. Since it was revealed to the media earlier this week Josh had reportedly denied about having the account at first.
â€œI donâ€™t understand. Thereâ€™s not a shot in hell that Iâ€™m a subscriber. I have no knowledge of that this is the first Iâ€™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.â€
Yet yesterday he took a true turn as heÂ released the following statement to E! News:
“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.”
Kristen also took to Twitter to thank fans for their support.
Thank you all so much for your kind words and support.

The recent leak of the site that is known to push married people into having an affair revealed over 37 million users, including 19 Kids and Counting star Josh Duggar, and Nicole Snooki Polizzi’s husband Jionni LaValle.
The couple shares two children together, Cassius and Kingsley. We wish them the best.
