We aren’t sure if Tori Spelling is fit to give marital advice, but The Real Housewives of New York City’s Kristen Taekman needs all the help she can get.
Kristen’s husband was busted on Ashley Madison when the list of affair-seekers was released by hackers.
Josh Taekman, whose often belittles and ignores his wife and children on the show, admitted to using the site after reports surfaced that he was a user.
Tori and Kristen were recently spotting jogging together in a Los Angeles area suburb. And a source claims that Tori is offering Kristen some much needed support.
“They met last year at an event in New York City, and became friends,” an insider told Radar Online. “Tori went through a very public scandal when her husband, Dean, cheated on her, so she’s been there.”
The source continued, “Tori told Kristen to take the time and figure out what the best decision is for her and the kids.”
“Even though Josh has only admitted to have an account on Ashley Madison, Kristen of course has doubts. Tori advised Kristen to carry on in public as she always does, and to never let the press get an unflattering picture.”
When Josh, 46, came clean about using Ashley Madison, he said, “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.”
Though Spelling’s guidance is a nice gesture, she may need to focus on her relationship with husband Dean McDermott. The couple has had significant marital troubles. On top of their past drama, Tori suspects that Dean has an Ashley Madison account.
Despite her own marital drama, the source said Tori has “been a great help to Kristen.”
“Dealing with the possible betrayal is extremely hard, and doing it in the public eye is unbearable. Tori is a fiercely loyal friend, and offered to help Kristen in any way she could.”
