After Josh Taekman’s public apology regarding his name being among the millions leaked in the Ashley Madison hack, Kristen Taekman’s co-star Ramona Singer is speaking out in defense of their relationship.
"I don’t believe Josh has ever cheated on Kristen,” the Real Housewives of New York OG tells Entertainment Tonight. “I see them as a really loving couple. Every couple has problems — I don’t care who you are. And I think through the show they actually worked through a lot of their problems.”
Josh admitted joining the site with friends and described it as “foolish” and “ignorant,” which Ramona agreed with. “People do silly things,” she explains. “I can believe that Josh did something really silly.” She goes on to say that the problem is with the infidelity focused site itself. “What really bothers me the most about a site like this is endorsing and condoning people to start thinking outside the marriage,” she says. “Forget about even the physical act of having an affair, it’s just even thinking [about cheating].”
As for Kristen (who broke her silence on social media on August 25), Ramona is confident that the Pop of Color mom will be fine. "I think Kristen will be OK," she said. "You know what, she really is a strong woman — she’ll be OK. She knows I only wish her the best."
