Megyn Kelly state reason why she would allow husband , one night-stands –
Megyn Kelly’s husband made fun of his wife’s statement to her podcast listeners that she would prefer he have a one-off sex escapade than develop an emotional connection with another woman, saying she was building a “trap” for him.
The subject came up on Wednesday when “The Megyn Kelly Show” presenter Kelly and her guest, Canadian professor Gad Saad, discussed rumors that NFL quarterback Tom Brady and his supermodel wife, Gisele Bündchen, were getting a divorce.
Saad said that while he was admittedly “entering speculation land,” he noted that “statistically speaking, [Brady returning to the NFL] seems to be an unlikely reason they would have broken up.”
Saad said that from the perspective of “evolutionary psychology,” women “get more triggered and more angry and more jealous by emotional infidelity rather than sexual infidelity.”
“I can see that,” Kelly responded. “I’m thinking about my own husband — I’d much rather he have a one-night stand with a woman than sit and cry with her.”
A day later, on Thursday, Kelly uploaded a screenshot of a text conversation she received from her writer husband, Doug Brunt, who is the former CEO of a cybersecurity company. Kelly didn’t go into any detail at the time. Together, the couple has three kids.
“This feels like a trap,” Brunt texted his wife along with a link to Thursday’s Post write-up of Kelly’s remarks on her Wednesday podcast.
“LOL,” Kelly added in the caption with the attached screenshot.
Kelly had read from a Page Six exclusive report during the show, which claimed that the pair had contacted divorce attorneys following a “epic argument” sparked by Bündchen’s alleged displeasure with Brady’s choice to play another season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The top two grounds for divorce, in Saad’s opinion, are “financial dispute” and “infidelity.”
“Infidelity is much more of a death blow [to the relationship] if a woman cheats on a man than vice versa — not because of the patriarchy but because when a woman cheats on a guy, it triggers paternity uncertainty from an evolutionary perspective,” according to Saad.
“Whereas when a man cheats on a woman, it’s not quite the same thing.”
