(Newser) – Three years later, Fergie is speaking out about the allegations that her husband, actor Josh Duhamel, had an affair with a stripper. "It was difficult," she tells Oprah Winfrey in an interview airing Sunday on Oprah's Next Chapter, Celebuzz reports. "When you go through difficult times it really makes you stronger as a unit. As a partnership. It does for us anyways. Our love today is a deeper love. We’re strong today because of anything difficult that’s happened with us. We deal with it. We communicate. Communicating’s the most important thing." No official denial that the affair happened—at least not in the leaked portion of the interview.
