The woman who claims she had a short-lived affair with Josh Duhamel has exactly two words for his wife, Fergie: “I’m sorry.”

“I thought, ‘Nobody’s gonna find out. It’s not gonna hurt anybody,’ ” exotic dancer Nicole Forrester, 34, tells Extra in an interview set to air Thursday night. “I’m sorry that I didn’t think of it like I think of it now.”

Forrester claims that she and the actor, 36, had a tryst after he came into her Atlanta strip club, and says she has passed a lie-detector test. But despite her regrets, she doesn’t consider herself a homewrecker.

“She’s standing by her man, so obviously I’m not wrecking the home too bad, huh?” she says.

In fact, the media attention given to her claims have hurt her family, if anyone’s. She has two young children.

“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 says.

She’s even quit stripping.

“I don’t want to because of my children,” she says. “They asked that I never do it again.”

But was it all worth it? The sex definitely wasn’t, she says. “As far as the best sex? No, I don’t think that was it,” she says.
