While Josh Taekman’s Ashley Madison scandal may destroy his marriage, it seems it might be what saves his wife, Kristen Taekman’s, job on the Real Housewives of New York. For months, there have been reports that Kristen was getting the axe from the Bravo reality show and would not return for season eight. Now in light of the scandal surrounding Kristen’s marriage she may be returning to RHONY after all.
Before the Ashley Madison scandal, Kristen was going to be let go from RHONY due to her lack of storyline. A production source reveals, “Kristen didn’t have much of a storyline this season, which is why Bravo was seriously considering canning her.”
Now it seems that Bravo is re-thinking there plans to let Kristen go because like most of us Bravo loves a scandal. “However, Bravo loves a good scandal, sad as that may be, especially when it can play out for their cameras. Think of all of the drama this Ashley Madison reveal could bring to the show.”
“Unfortunately, this is bound to be a tough time personally for Kristen, but this will up her chances at a RHONY return for sure.”
Do you think Bravo will keep Kristen on board for season eight? Has the Ashley Madison scandal saved Kristen’s reality TV career?
