Now that Katherine Heigl is blogging for iVillage.com she’s decided it would be a good idea to openly discuss every little detail of her life with the world. First she talked about feeling like a failed mother (because struggling to balance a career and motherhood is such an uncommon thing these days) and now she’s taken it upon herself to discuss her thoughts on cheating and how it’s never interested her in the slightest. Really gripping stuff, right? Not really, but something makes me feel compelled to talk about it anyway.
In her latest blog, Heigl talked about her thoughts on the whole concept of marriage and — more importantly — her lack of interest in ever cheating on her husband, Josh Kelley. The actress posted the following statement:
“I have no desire to physically hook up with any man other than my husband and have been a serial monogamist from the moment of my first serious relationship at 20. I have never been able to connect with a man sexually without it becoming emotional, without giving a piece of my heart and soul to that connection. I always loved the idea of Samantha on Sex and the City, but it just isn’t how I’m built. I understand that every human being on earth wonders if the grass might be greener in other pastures, but I could never imagine myself really going there or really wanting to. I guess the relationship I’m in is so consuming that the idea of a dalliance with another man sounds exhausting. It’s hard enough to make one connection work — I can’t imagine, even for four days, splitting myself between two!”
So some of you cheaters out there (you know who you are) may be able to have meaningless relations with men, but Katherine Heigl is NOT one of them. She’s too good for that — she can’t help it. I mean, yeah it’s wrong to cheat and people shouldn’t do it, but there’s really no need for these ramblings. We get it, you’re faithful, let’s move on. But Heigl wasn’t quite done. She went on to share, “We’ve had some pretty explosive fights over the years trying to make our marriage work, but it’s been worth it. I do not want to live my life without Josh in it and will do everything I can to make sure I don’t have to — except give him the freedom to don a costume and mask and bang some other chick.”
So to sum it all up: marriage is difficult, but keep working on it and don’t cheat. Absolutely groundbreaking. This is the stuff great marriages are made of folks. I hope you remembered to take notes!
