Fergie talks cheating

Prior to tabloid reports that her husband  Josh Duhamel had an affair with an Atlanta stripper, Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie told the Advocate magazine that she has some strict rules about cheating in her marriage.

That interview now appears in the December-January issue of the Advocate. Fergie told the magazine that her rules for cheating also apply for same-sex relationships.

“I've had a lot of fun with women, and I'm not ashamed of it," she told the magazine. "But just because I enjoy women doesn't mean I'm allowed to have affairs in my relationship."

Fergie said she came to this conclusion with the help of a therapist and that she has shared her history of same sex relationships with her husband Josh. “"I learned through talking with my therapist that it is still cheating even if it's with girls, so there is a rule there."

The interview has been released amid rumors that Duhamel had an affair with an Atlanta stripper named Nicole Forrester. Fergie has released a statement calling the stripper’s allegations “nonsense."

Fergie, whose real name is Stacy Ferguson, is appearing in the soon to be released movie musical “Nine” as Saraghina, an Italian prostitute who seduces a young filmmaker. She also told the magazine that she could relate to her character flirting with and seducing a younger man.

“There will be teenage boys at my shows, so sometimes I’m seducing them from the stage. It’s not like anything’s going to happen - it’s very playful and flirtatious - but it’s funny because I’m 34 and they’re 14. So I get that about Saraghina.”

    Fergie is only a pop vocalist and not a Doctor of philosophy or psychology. Unfortunately, she has mistakenly taken upon herself to voice out to the public her opinions on sexuality and fidelity. Her comments demonstrate the same grasp in knowledge on that subject as Bush did when it came to the middle east.

    Those of you who say that Fergie is ugly, unattractive, a "butterface", etc. & that You didn't blame Josh for cheating, you should be ashamed. How shallow. He married her, he obviously loves her & finds her attractive. Besides, there is absolutely NO excuse for anyarried person male or female, to cheat. You want to sleep around, get a divorce first! Jeez, if you think Fergie is ugly... Anyway LOL, I'd be curious to see some of these guys, I bet they aren't exactly 10's themselves!!

    So, it's appropriate for one of the largest and most respected news agencies to allow languange like this on your web forums? According to the box to my right, all comments may not appear on this blog until they have been reviewed and deemed appropriate for posting. So this implies that somewhere a man or woman working for you decided that all of this language presented in this blog is appropriate?

    My kid reads this stuff. Use your head CNN. Hope someone loses their job as a "comment screener" over this.

    Fergie is a bit of a "butterface" (when everything looks good, but-her-face). I can see why he strayed.

    For all we know they could have an "understanding" in their relationship. Not like celeb couples would want that kind of thing to get out. Besides, its not even about the fact that he was looking for something "better" people sometimes cheat just to have something different. Men (AND WOMEN) like variety.

    having been cheated on in marriage (it's now over/thankfully), I concluded, if they'll cheat on Halle Berry, they'll cheat on anyone!

    It's sad to say, but it appears as though 'cheating on a spouse' has almost become the rule, as opposed to the exception!

    In no way do I support or defend stars like Michael Vick or Brittany Spears whose despicable actions affect those who idolize them-
    For those of you who've gotten riled up about Fergie's statment about flirting with teenage boys while on stage.. um.. Hello? Guess you're not fans of movies like "The Graduate"-yet it's considered a classic. She was comparing a role of a character she played in a movie to the character she plays while on stage- is that really such a stretch? Most stars have the teenage crowd drooling and work with it because that's part of what's making them famous, and what is expected of them. Think of Tom Jones, David Cassidy, Bon Jovi, Madonna, Marilyn Monroe.. ect.. these people are only playing the part that the public expects them to. If that thought truly bothers you good luck trying to shield you children from it.. they'll be going to Sesame Street on Ice until they're 18.

    It took a therapist to tell her that being with other women is cheating? Duh? Yeah, ok. Pretty stupid to not know that already. She seduces minor boys from the stage? She's got serious issues. If a male singer said he seduces minor girls from the stage, his career would be OVER. Yeah, hope she keeps going to her therapist.

    If Fergie was a man this statment would be the end of her career. Such a double standard.

    Fergie is a true demonstration of a woman in a real world. I love that she is open about drugs, women, men and life. I think the stripper is lying, I mean really Josh wouldn't cheat on Fergie. If he did he is a fool and doesn't deserve a real woman.

    Fergie is beautiful, sexy and strong...LOVE IT!

    cheating really hurts, I know first hand unfortunately, my ex-wife cheated on me this summer with her married co-worker, now I'm a single dad raising three little boys the best I can. I feel bad for Fergie, she is a beautiful women and I really enjoy her singing. I wish adultery was criminal in this country b/c its one of the most hurtful & wrong things you can do to someone else.

    daniel, Josh is rumored to have cheated with a female stripper who looks like a man.

    I really like Fergie....@this time it comes down to who is telling the truth. If Josh did in fact have the affair then it would be up to Fergie to forgive and not forget. Who knows what the circumstances were for him to have to cheat on Fergie.....and she looks like a dog! What was he thinking! Some women just don't respect what is already taken and this is not fair to a union that will probably break up due to disrespect. I wish Fergie all the luck and to think with her heart and not with her emotion.

    Hey Amber you have issues, I am not a lesbian and have been married for 15 years to a loyal, dedicated, sexy, loving man...he is clean, romantic, attentive, sweet, amazing, appreciative, monogomous, I could go point here is you stated that all men are dogs and pigs and cannot keep it in thier pants and are weak willed. I personally know lesbians who sleep with several women a week ... it is not gender specific, it is slimebag specific and quite unfair for you to say that would be like anyone else saying all lesbians are flannel wearing, short haired, weight lifting, flat chested, tatooed, bull dikes, not fair right? unless you are ...

    The fact that he chose and married a woman with such a troubled and wild past, shows that this is the type of woman he is attracted to. No one, including Fergie, should be suprised that he cheated with a stripper.

    interesting double standard:

    “There will be teenage boys at my shows, so sometimes I’m seducing them from the stage. It’s not like anything’s going to happen – it’s very playful and flirtatious – but it’s funny because I’m 34 and they’re 14. So I get that about Saraghina.”

    stated by ANYONE but an attractive, sex-symbol, female, this statement would be used as an accusation of pedophilia.

    Why is it okay when a man cheats, but not a woman? You all would be crucifying her if this was the other way around. But with him, you're like: Oh well, she's not satisfying him. B.S.!! Has it dawned on you that men are uncontrollable pigs that can't keep it in their pants if their life depended on it. They're heathens, savages, like dogs that can't stay away from red meat. It's ridiculous! Men are so weak willed that they can't control themselves. Thank GOD I'm a lesbian...that's all I've got to say. The relationships are great, bedroom is AMAZING, honesty, monogamy, cleanliness, appreciation, romance.

    Poor Fergie. Kick that deadbeat to the curb IF he was cheating.

    Why isn't anyone concerned that as soon as the stripper found out who he was (whether it was after they had sex or after he left the club) she sold her "story" to the tabloids for $20,000. She's whore no matter how you look at it.

    I listened to the stripper's interview on the Bert Show (Atlanta radio) last week, and I was definitely not buying her story. So this woman claims to 1) have had an affair with a married man and 2) has gotten paid to talk about it. I don't care if she's claiming to have hooked up with a damn cactus plant. Her credibility is still zero.

    It's sad that we focus on others more than ourselves. we will never know what really happens. We should be concerned with the fact that 13 soilders are dead because of a mindless act.
