Matthew Fox “didn’t use protection” says alleged stripper mistress


We covered the early details of this story this morning, so go here for the initial story. The National Enquirer and Radar seemed to break the story first thing this morning – apparently, Matthew Fox may have cheated on his wife of 19 years, Margherita Ronchi, with a 26-year-old stripper. This alleged cheating happened in Oregon, and the stripper, Stefani Talbott, seems to have sold her story to both the National Enquirer and In Touch Weekly. While the Enquirer is just running a simple “Fox cheated on his wife” story online, In Touch released part of their interview with this Talbott woman, and it’s just as bad as you would think. Here’s a photo of Talbott and the In Touch excerpt:


“He didn’t tell me to keep it a secret or anything. He didn’t even use protection. He didn’t seem concerned at all,” Stefani Talbott tells In Touch exclusively, about the married Lost star.

In an exclusive interview with In Touch, 25-year-old stripper Stefani Talbott claims that she slept with Lost star Matthew Fox twice in the past year.

While Matthew’s rep says “These accusations are false,” Stefani says she first met the 43-year-old last July, soon after she started working at Stars Cabaret in Bend, Oregon.

“I was dancing onstage, and I made eye contact with him immediately. I got so excited,” Stefani tells In Touch.

Since she was a big Party of Five fan, she recognized him right away — but she soon found out he was much different from the clean-cut characters he plays. Matthew, Stefani says, started by buying her a drink, then paid for four private dances, each worth $20.

“He asked me, ‘Why are you working in a place like this?’ I told him that I am a single mom and needed the money,” Stefani says. “He absolutely did not mention a wife or family, and I don’t remember him wearing a wedding ring.”

Despite the club’s strict rules about dating customers, Stefani left her 5-year-old son with a babysitter and claims she met Matthew later that night at the house he was staying in with his entourage.

“We sat around and talked about his show. He complimented me and was saying how down-to-earth I am. He told me he was going to be in town for a couple of days,” she tells In Touch. Pretty soon, things heated up.

“He didn’t tell me to keep it a secret or anything. He didn’t even use protection. He didn’t seem concerned at all,” says Stefani.

Ugh. Jesus. Fox is 43 years old, he should know better. The Enquirer reported that Talbott had kept voicemail and text messages from Fox, and Radar reports that there’s an eyewitness account of Fox getting physical with Talbott – the cab driver who took them back to Talbott’s place. In a piece that has now been taken down, Radar had the taxi driver saying: “They kissed and touched each other in the cab… [afterwards] they were more romantic than before, kissing a lot more and hugging each other.”

At this point it just seems like Matthew wanted to be caught, right? Dumbass. Matthew and Margherita Ronchi have two children together, daughter Klye Allison (age 12) and son Byron (age nine). And you know this isn’t the end of this sh-t, either. Once the print editions of the tabloids come out, there will be even more sketchy details floating around.

When I was looking for new photos of Fox, I found this adorable one of him and Josh Holloway. Let’s leave this post on a high note… mmm, LaFleur.

    i refuse to believe this story!

  2. lolo says:

    Me refuses it toooo! I can’t believe this incredibly sweeet looking man would do such a thing!

    He is so attractive! And has been with his wife for 19 years! I really hope this is not true!

  3. Dis Appointed says:

    I don’t believe it either. The “alleged mistress” wishes it was so, and apparently so does Kaiser 🙁

  4. Susette says:

    I would be amused if it turned out to be a Matthew Fox look-a-like that saw an opportunity to get with the stripper.

    Other than that, these stories are starting to bore me. Why is it always strippers? Why can’t one of these idiots cheat on their wives with an airline pilot or a scientist? Surely there are morality-challenged, intelligent, sluts out there!

  5. Alexis says:

    I really hope this is false, but if it isn’t… ick. I am not calling strippers dirty, however I am calling unprotected sex dangerous!

  6. Corina says:

    Shouldn’t strippers know by now that if you’re sleeping with a customer you should use protection? Or sleeping with anyone, really, but I think strippers in particular should really understand that they want some kind of protective barrier between their money maker and the skeevy guys (famous or not) that watch them….

  7. Allison says:

    noooo 🙁 i hope this isnt true…

  8. Dorothy says:

    Whatever people! Of course this is true! Haven’t we seen so many of these stories and they ALL turn out to be true? I just hope a story like this does not come out about Josh Holloway!

  9. irishserra says:

    So so sad…


  10. Tru says:

    she has voicemails and probably pics and can name dates..WHY wouldn’t this be true???

    Its true, why can’t he fall victim to a pretty young blond???

    I think his wife should make him pay but take him to counseling and work it out. He looks like he can drink and get is party on–he had no business in a strip joint.

    I’m sure she probably saved all of the evidence and shame on her–not using a condom. lord, nothing surprises me anymore.

  11. Wow says:

    Now a days it is less shocking to know that anyone has been caught cheating. People are as faithful as their options. I would be more surprised to see a faithful couple highlighted than to learn of another person cheating. It’s become the norm now.

    And why is this stripper acting like it was only up to Matthew to use protection as if she doesn’t have a say. With her way of thinking based on that statement, I can see why we have so many people with STD’s and unwanted pregnancies out there.

  12. lucy2 says:

    LOL Susette, I thought the same thing! Wouldn’t it be funny if she was that stupid and some guy was like, uh, sure, yeah I’m him!
    I really hope it’s not true, since he has two kids and all. But who knows.
    @Wow – I’m in totally agreement with your second paragraph. Then again, she probably hoped to get pregnant so she could get big bucks from him.

  13. Snarf says:

    The fact that Radar took the story down speaks volumes about the validity of the story.

    Why are so many so eager to find Fox guilty?

  14. lucy2 says:

    NE still has it up, but if Radar took it down I’d assume they couldn’t verify it? The NE article also claims he’s boozing it up and partying hard. Honestly, I have a very hard time believing that now, finishing up filming the last season of the show, any of the actors would be carrying on like that all the time.

  15. Laura says:

    true or not, its a private matter.

    God, I LOVE LOST

  16. ohsofabulous says:

    Ugh, I’m disgusted at all these jumpoffs, strippers, hoes, looking for a come up. I’m even more disgusted at the media for giving them shine.

  17. Kristin says:

    Doubt all of this — it’ll give the final season of Lost more attention, but that’s about it.

    Plus, he doesn’t enjoy fame anyway, half of his interviews have him complaining about being an actor, so why would he put himself in this “I won’t get caught cause I’m famous” situation?

    doubt this whole story.

  18. hmm says:

    ohsofabulous, I agree 100%.

  19. blue-planet says:

    This woman should take responsibility and say SHE did not use protection. She makes herself look like airhead. That is, if it is true.

  20. ThunderC*nt says:

    Never cared for him. He just isn’t Josh Holloway

  21. DD says:

    hmmm will there be another dr. pinksky sex rehab? let’s see we have Tiger, Fergie’s husband, and this guy, should make for a good season.

  22. whateva says:

    uh, deny all ya want, the National Enquirer has TRUE scoops – and why people don’t just get that thru their thick skulls i’ll never know. they SCOOP, i tell you! (doesn’t anyone remember the Frank Gifford scandal? anyone?-? … well i do)

  23. bendy says:

    a friend of mine his helping Fox build a house in Bend Oregon. so, for him to be accused of this in Bend Oregon specifically makes it seem pretty plausible. sorry, sly like a fox.

  24. Ursula says:

    Its true, experience has shown that such stories never be false.

  25. Mystee says:

    These women gab too much. If I slept with Mathew Fox, it would be our little secret. And she’s really not that hot and looks older than 25. SHE should pay HIM for sex! And who doesn’t know he’s married? I could never decide who was hotter….Mathew Fox or Josh Holloway. I think now maybe Josh…..his smile is soooo enchanting. And Foxy’s starting to look a little old.

  26. Late Night Wigs says:


    Yeah, the Enquirer is correct like 95% of the time. The ONLY difference between them and the supposed “reputable” newspapers is that they don’t have an agenda and will print the news as it is. I’ve been reading it forever and I cannot tell you how many times I’ve seen stories in there MONTHS before I’d see it in another “real” paper. I wish people that don’t know anything about it would STFU because they just look stupid….

    Also, these celebs are so f*cking STUPID to sleep with these hoes. Um, haven’t you morons seen it happen to other celebs a million times before? Is it arrogance that makes them think it won’t happen to them? Or are they delusional? Either way they have no respect for their partners. If I was his wife I’d divorce him immediately and good riddance. If he wants cheap stripper snatch then have at it but not while you’re married to me. But she’ll probably forgive him like they always do. Idiots all around.

    Women, women, women, when will u learn there is not a faithfull man on planet earth. From footballers, to janitors, to teachers and drivers. They all cheat on their wives and girlfriends. Thats just the way it is. And yes, i am a woman.

  28. iris says:

    well, his wife had him all for herself for a long time. Now is time to share!

  29. Leek says:

    What a bummer…

    Anyhoo, these men are constantly banging the wrong women. What they need to do is cheat with another high-profile, married actress with everything to lose and doesn’t need the tabloid money, nor the notoriety.

    Hollywood men — stay away from the whores and strippers because they all want to be famous and rich. These fallacious mistakes are just getting old and there’s almost no one left to have a good old celebrity crush on. Lame.

  30. jj says:

    He apparently has a brother in Oregon. He has said that after Lost he wants to move his family to Oregon to be closer to his brother. He’s building a house in the city where this happened? Hmmmm. His rep denies it. Celebrity publicists are lower grade scum than the clients they represent.

  31. Linda jimoh says:

    Whoever is doing this to mr mathew fox should no that no matter how hard they try to break his name,they cant.This is so bcos no matter the worst of stories they tell of him he’ll still always go and stay foward,they can never stop that while they will always stay behind him the more they try.Their doings make him greater.
