Kristen Taekman Reflects on the Ashley Madison Scandal

The #RHONY alum shares an update on her marriage and reveals the story behind her recent nearly-nude selfie.

The Real Housewives of New York City alum Kristen Taekman has faced her fair share of drama — not just over the course of her two seasons on the series, but in her personal life as well. Last summer, her husband Josh was included in the Ashley Madison leak, which released the names of users of the infidelity-focused dating site. Josh publicly commented on the events at the time, telling Us Weekly, "I deeply apologize for any embarrassment or pain I have brought forward to my life and my family." Kristen, on the other hand, remained more tight-lipped about the incident. Now, with some distance from the scandal, she says it "100 percent" made the couple stronger.

"Looking back, I know my truth, and our truth, and our relationship," the Pop of Color designer told Entertainment Tonight. "I just feel like I'm not on a reality TV show anymore, and I don't have to explain it to anybody. So, that's kind of how I'm leaving it."

Now, the Big Apple mom is focused on other endeavors including her beauty brand and fashion blog — which you can keep tabs on via her Instagram feed. And when she isn't sharing Last Night's Look, she's also getting revealing a lot of skin. She recently stripped down for a very sexy selfie.

"You didn't even see anything. That's not really racy. I just wanted a little privacy on the beach during my naked photo shoot in Miami, come on," she teased. "You're not naked on the beach normally? For the record, I had a bottom on, OK? It was early in the morning and there weren't that many people on the beach. It was for my blog Last Night's Look and I was doing a bronzer post. I love that hat; it's so cute."
