Based on site traffic, it looks like the recent Twilight series cheating scandal is making a post I did from 2010 popular once again. It was titled How not to get cheated on when pregnant. In it, I summarized a few celebrities who cheated on their spouses or girlfriends while expecting a child and spun my thoughts on what a pregnant woman can do to avoid that result.
Most recently, another cheating scandal, though not involving a pregnancy [that we know for sure of] is rocking Hollywood. Actress Kristen Stewart was photographed canoodling with with her married with kids Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders while still having live-in boyfriend and co-star Rob Pattinson at home.
Interesting enough, current Bellyitch Bumpwatch babes, Claire Danes and Tori Spelling, have cheating related history. Danes cheated with her Stage Beauty co-star Billy Crudup who left his then 7-months pregnant wife Mary Louise Parker for her before eventually splitting up. Danes and hubby Hugh Dancy are expecting their first child together. Spelling started seeing current husband Dean McDermott while she was still married to Charlie Shanian and he was married to Mary Jo Eustace. Spelling and McDermott are now expecting their 4th child after a very long and successful marriage.
In true Bellyitch Rewind style, here is that post again updated to include at least 7 cheaters, with the relevant instructional portion following. It seems to be relevant once again:
In 2010, Former NFL great and Today show Sports commentator Tiki Barber cheated on his pregnant wife Ginny Barber with 23-year old intern Traci Lynn Johnson. He has, in fact, left his wife for Traci Lynn.
The news caused me to think of other high profile cases of men who cheated on their pregnant wives or steadies: Kevin Federline cheated on actress Shar Jackson with Britney Spears while Shar was pregnant with their third child.
Lil Wayne had two women, singer Nivea and actress Black Hollywood "It" girl Lauren London pregnant at the same time. So obviously somebody was getting cheated on at some point.

Salma Hayek broke up with her French billionaire fiance François-Henri Pinault 11 months after the couple had their first child. There was speculation he may have started an affair while she was still pregnant.
Bones Star David Boreanaz cheated on his wife of eight years, Jaime Bergman, while she was pregnant, reportedly -- and of all people with Rachel Uchitel, the same NYC events planner who boned a married Tiger Woods!
So how do you avoid getting cheated on while you are carrying his child? Hmm...
...try to be interested in sex and please your partner in other ways if you're not feeling up to doing the actual deed...
...try not to be irritable and let the raging pregnancy hormones drive you to bark commands at him...
...try not to find him annoying and incompetent cause you're only carrying around 5-7lbs in your stomach, have stressed joints and ligaments, swollen feet, an achy back, peeing non stop and uncomfortable in your clothes. What's stopping you from being nice to your S.O. too?...
...if all else fails run an anti-cheating diagnostic urine test on him before getting pregnant. Oh wait, something like that doesn't exist? Dang!
|David Boreanaz & ex wife Jaime Bergman|
I read somewhere that the lack of regular action and the pressure of dealing with a woman who is nothing like the woman he married leads some men to break and find comfort in the arms of another woman --- maybe one who laughs at his jokes at work and totally understands his pain.
Um, okay. I call bullshit. Real men are able to curb their libido for 10 months and understand that what their wives are going through is nothing but a miracle and suck it up. Actually, the literature says some women actually get hornier during pregnancy and want it more but their husbands either are fearful of hurting the baby or aren't as attracted to their wife while she is pregnant. I wonder if the weight gain or pregnancy acne have anything to do with the "turn off" factor.
Anyway, REAL MEAN are also mature enough to know that "this too shall" pass and in no time not only will they get their sweet endearing wife back, but they'll also be blessed with a new baby.
So I am not going to condone or advocate going out your way to try to please your guy while you are pregnant because having been there three times, I know that being pregnant brings a whole heap of aches and new pains. By all means, exercise and stay fab looking. But the added pressure of trying to make sure your dude is satisfied sexually is a bit much. I'm just saying. It's just a risk a woman has to take, I guess. I mean if he is too weak to stay faithful while you are pregnant of all times, what is going to stop him from stepping out on another less stressful occasion?
