Kristen Taekman is trying to stay busy following news of her husband Josh Taekman's Ashley Madison account. And what's the best way to do that? A BFF and some good wine.
On Monday, the 38-year-old was comforted by Brandi Glanville during a boozy lunch in Los Angeles. The two sipped on a couple glasses of white wine over their meal before sharing a big hug goodbye.
Despite looking a little glum, Kristen dressed cheerfully in a neon yellow blouse with white pants. Glanville looked summery-chic in a white mini dress with a pair of nude wedges.
Following their lunch, Glanville took to Twitter and wrote to Kristen, "I LOVE YOU," with a couple heart emojis. The Real Housewives of New York star followed suit, tweeting a photo of the two embracing with the caption: "The one and only @BrandiGlanville ! #missyoualready #TRUEFRIENDS"
Perhaps Glanville—who found out her husband Eddie Cibirian was cheating on her with LeAnn Rimes in 2009—was passing on some words of advice to her friend.
Hackers recently revealed that Kristen's husband Josh had an account on the cheating website Ashley Madison. Though he initially said he was a victim of fraud, Josh came forward to confess he did, in fact, have an account on the site.
"I did sign 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," he added. "We both look forward to moving past this and getting on with our lives."
However, Josh did not reveal that he also paid to access the site 62 separate times, spending a total of more than $1500 in a membership that spanned three years, according to The Daily Mail.
In his profile – under the tagline "Let's have fun"—he referred to himself as "Mr Big NYC," writing that he was "looking to enjoy the finer things life has to offer."
He also added, "Total respect for my situation and yours but looking for a beautiful sexy woman, who wants to be treated like a woman, engaged socially and see where it goes from there."
Despite the revelation, Kristen and Josh have maintained a united front. The two rang in their 10th wedding anniversary last week in the south wing of the NYC restaurant Tavern on the Green with about 60 friends.
"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," a source close to the couple told E! News. "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."
