UPDATED 08/25/15: After initially brushing off the allegations as a case of identity theft, Josh Taekman has admitted he opened the Ashley Madison account. E! Online got the scoop late Monday. The Real Housewives of New York City star told them, rather bluntly, "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."
Two e-mail accounts, allegedly linked to the reality star, are connected to thousands of dollars worth of payments to the online source for down low adultery - including one for $250 that guarantees the payee an affair within three months.
The accounts were active users on the site for three years, from June 2011 until June 2014.
For what it's worth, the businessman - who is responsible for the energy supplement Eboost - denied the allegations when Daily Mail Online was able to question him.
"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."
