"Doritos Girl" and former Miss USA Ali Landry earned an incredible amount of sympathy from ladies across the nation back in '04 after she found out that BF of six years and DH of several weeks Mario Lopez had cheated on her just days before they said "I do." But that was then, and now, Landry's happily married to director Alejandro Monteverde, and I guess in an effort to promote her new show, Hollywood Girls Night, the 38-year-old is dishing about what she and Monteverde were missing when they wed: A sex life.
Yup. Landry recently told Wendy Williams, "Because of the situation I was in before, I was just treading lightly, and did not want to make any mistakes in this relationship. We abstained from having sex until we got married."
Give. Me. A. Break.
First of all, doesn't Landry realize you can't be a "virgin" twice? Ha. Second, I understand the woman was burned all sorts of badly, and she didn't want to "make any mistakes," but NOT having sex before you make a life-long commitment to be someone's spouse sounds like the biggest mistake I could ever imagine a man or woman making! As Samantha Jones once put it when counseling Charlotte after she waxed poetic about waiting until her wedding day to have sex with first hubby Trey, "Honey, before you buy the car, you take it for a test drive!"
It beyond annoys me that Ali's implying that if she had done the nasty premaritally with her now-husband, that would have somehow been a misstep. Crazy! Sorry, most of us prefer to have solid info about what our sex life is going to look like -- i.e. will it be satisfying, enjoyable, kinky, frequent enough?, etc. -- over the next 50+ years.
Okay, even though we are now in the 20th century and not the 12th, I realize there are people who have their reasons for waiting until after they wed, and usually that has to do with religion. Sure, that's a couples' personal decision. But I do wonder if said couples realize there could be MAJOR consequences to being clueless about compatibility between the sheets. No matter what virginity-lovin' fairy tales we were brought up on, sex isn't automatically amazing because you're having it with a spouse. You could love someone and still have lacking sexual chemistry or have to work on getting what you want in bed. I can think of lots o' disappointing scenarios.
Ah, well. Hopefully, Ali and Alejandro are doing just fine. They do have two kiddos, so I guess we can safely assume they do have sex. Good for them. But something tells me everything would have been more than a-okay had they gotten it on well before walking down the aisle.
Here's Ali talking to Wendy ...
What do you think about waiting to have sex until after you're married -- mistake or magical?
