The husbands of reality stars Kristen Taekman and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi are the latest to be linked to the leaked data from affair website Ashley Madison.

Taekman, a star of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of New York,” is married to Eboost founder Josh Taekman, who admitted to having an account on the website.

Josh subsequently apologized. “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,” he said in a statement to TheWrap. “We both look forward to moving past this and getting on with our lives.”

Meanwhile, former “Jersey Shore” star Polizzi’s husband, Jionni Lavalle, allegedly had an account on the site as well. An email address matching Lavalle’s was found amidst the hacked data by Us Weekly, although he has not confirmed that the account is actually his.

These revelations are the latest stemming from the hack, the most explosive of which being that disgraced “19 Kids and Counting” star Josh Duggar had an account on the website as well. The news came on the heels of the revelation that Duggar had sexually abused multiple girls when he was a teenager, which prompted TLC to cancel the popular reality series.

Representatives for Taekman and Polizzi did not respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
