RHOBH star Brandi Glanville spent time with Kristen Taekman in Los Angeles earlier this week. Following Josh Taekman’s admission to having an account with Ashley Madison, an online dating website for married people with a desire to have an affair, the RHOBH star met with Taekman for what E! News referred to as a “boozy lunch” on September 1.

The RHOBH star has known Taekman for many years, and because of her own public scandal with her ex-husband, Eddie Cibrian, she’s likely a good support for her fellow reality star.
As fans will recall, Cibrian cheated on the RHOBH star after nine years of marriage and two children together. His affair took place on the set of Lifetime’s Northern Lights with his co-star, LeAnn Rimes, who was also married at the time. The affair made for quite the public spectacle, especially after photos of the two kissing hit the web. In the years that followed, Cibrian and Rimes both got divorced, and went on to marry one another in April 2011. Since then, they have been co-parenting with the RHOBH star.
While E! News claimed Taekman looked “glum” during her outing with the RHOBH star, she certainly dressed to impress with a neon yellow top and white pants.
Last week, days after Taekman’s husband’s account was shared online, a source confirmed to E! News that the RHOBH star’s friend was not planning to divorce Josh.
“They honestly love each other. She may hold this over his head for a while, but I believe she’ll stick with him. I just don’t see them separating. [They] are fine. Kristen believes him. They’re shrugging it off… Josh is embarrassed but he’s telling friends that in terms of the marriage, it’s a non-issue. They are not going to split over this.”
As for Taekman’s Real Housewives of New York City co-stars, the source explained, “Everyone from the cast is handling it differently. Some of the women have held off on calling her because they want to respect Kristen’s privacy. Others have reached out. They all have summer homes and a few of the women have let Kristen know that if she needs a place to get away or clear her head, she’s welcome to come and stay. Kristen has thanked them for their support.”
Taekman also spent time with the RHOBH star last week, prior to news of her husband’s account hitting the web.
