"I thought, 'Nobody's gonna find out. It's not gonna hurt anybody," she said. "I'm sorry. I'm sorry that I didn't think of it like I think of it now."
Nicole, 34, says she met Duhamel at an Atlanta strip club while he was filming "Live As We Know It." Duhamel has dismissed her claims as "ridiculous."
But Nicole says her ex-lover still texts her things like, "Wow, you are scared?" to which she keeps responding with the unlikely, "I don't want any part of this."
A single mother of two, Nicole says she hasn't stripped since selling her story to the National Enquirer because her kids have asked her to stop bringing shame upon them.
"My son, he went to a football game last Saturday and he was like, mom, 'you're disgusting. I didn't know you had sex with him,'" she said.
Though Fergie loves a well-endowed man, Nicole was not wowed by Duhamel's skills in the sack.
"As far as the best sex? No, I don't think that was it," she said.
