Say you're at a party and mistakenly pick up your friend's husband's phone, only to see racy texts between him and another woman. Should you tell your friend?

That's the sticky situation tackled on The Today Show 's "Let's Get Ethical" segment late last week. And according to author Marie Forleo, the answer is yes.

"A real friend would tell you if your fly is down, a real friend would tell you if you had spinach in your teeth, and yes, a real friend would tell you if your husband's cheating on you," she said. "And I think the best thing is to give the guy a chance to make things right. Let him know you're going to be spilling the beans and give him an opportunity to really make amends."
