Has Josh Taekman been cheating on his wife, Real Housewives of New York City star Kristen Taekman? According to an August 24 report by the UK’s Daily Mail, Josh Taekman was a user of Ashley Madison, a website designed for married people with a desire to cheat on their spouse.
“A user who appears to be 46-year-old Josh Taekman, first logged onto the site in June 2011 using the email JTeezy012@gmail.com. He also used the email SeanThomas012@gmail.com,” the Daily Mail reported. “The energy supplement entrepreneur who has two children with his model wife of ten years, Kristen, 38, logged on and had 62 paid transactions, and spent thousands on the cheaters’ site.”
According to the site, Ashley Madison can be used for free, but in order to send messages to others, credits are required. For example, $49 gets 100 credits while $250 earns 1,000 credits. The site also offers a money-back “affair guarantee” if you don’t hook up with someone within the first three months.
While Josh Taekman denied using the site, a credit card was registered with Ashley Madison under the name Josh Taekman at the home he shares with his wife in New York City. In addition, that credit card was allegedly used to access Ashley Madison 62 times in the past three years.
In a statement to Daily Mail, Josh Taekman said he was not a subscriber of Ashley Madison.
“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.”
Still, the odds don’t seem to be working in Josh Taekman’s favor. The site revealed the email address used in his alleged profile, JTeezy012@gmail.com, was similar to his Twitter handle, @Jteezy012, and ironically, Josh Taekman, if it was in fact him, appeared to stop using the site in June 2014, just weeks after his wife began starring on The Real Housewives of New York City.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Kristen spoke of her relationship with Josh Taekman just months ago. During a Hollywood Life Podcast, she alleged she and her husband had actually learned more about themselves after watching themselves on Bravo.
“We’d watch [the show] together on Tuesday nights and we kind of had our moments. We’d watch it and reflect. He’d go, ‘okay I was wrong there but did you see your facial expression? Did you see why I reacted like that?’ We just had a lot of back and forth and by watching that, we were like, we gotta slow down and take more time for each other.”
Josh Taekman and his wife have been married for 10 years and share two children.
