Shanna Moakler, in an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com Thursday, said that her on-again, off-again romance with ex-husband Travis Barker attracts attention because it is a common challenge people in relationships can relate to.
"The nature of Travis and I's relationship is unorthodox, but it's because we love each so passionately, I think the interest lies in the fact so many people can relate, they may not have the spotlight on them, but everyone goes thru the same challenges," the former Miss USA told RadarOnline.com.
The couple and their stormy history have made headlines again after Barker -- who survived a plane crash last fall that killed four of the passengers aboard -- accused Moakler of cheating on him with actor Gerard Butler (300) while he was recovering from the incident.
In a blog she posted on Myspace Thursday, Moakler, who has two kids with the Blink 182 drummer, said Barker was the one who showed signs of infidelity.
"I came across numerous romantic e-mails with MANY other woman -- some famous, some I personally knew -- all heartbreaking," she wrote.
She says she separated from Barker but hoped "we would remain friends and good parents."
