"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," Josh told Us Weekly. "We both look forward to moving past this and getting on with our lives."
The Daily Mail reports that Josh signed up for the website in June 2011 and spent thousands on the account, making 62 paid transactions in order to send messages to others on the site. The account stopped being used in June 2014, shortly after the couple began appearing on Real Housewives of New York, where their marriage troubles were often the focus of episodes.
According to fellow Real Housewives star Ramona Singer, Josh and Kristen, who have two children together, had recently renewed their wedding vows prior to the massive Ashley Madison hack. Singer insisted that the couple are in love and faithful to each other, despite the fact that Bravo opted to not show Josh on-screen during the most recent season due to tensions between the couple.
