What song is the melody of Fergie's 'Big Girls Don't Cry' a blatent ripoff of?

Listen to the chorus of Fergie's 'Big Girls Don't Cry'. At first I thought, 'I never thought a Fergie song would be this catchy'. And then I thought, 'I've heard this melody before'.

There is another song whose chorus almost follows a very similar melody as the first part of this song's chorus. The problem is, I can't remember the name of the song I'm thinking of, nor can I remember whose song it was. All I remember is my vague recollection of the words in the chorus that went along with the melody...'your love is this, your love is that, your love is thiiiiiiiiiiiiiis'. Obviously, the words weren't 'this' or 'that', but I can't remember what they were. Fuck, I might have even misheard the word love. I don't know.

The song is relatively(read: the last 15 years) recent. I think.

Just try to think of any song whose chorus shares the same melody with 'Big Girls Don't Cry's chorus.

With a line like "I'm going to miss you like a child misses their blanket" I refuse to think about the chorus for health reasons

The part where it goes something like "I hope something something" sounds familiar to me. But I haven't been able to pin it down yet.

Well, she did steal Fergalicious from JJ Fat's "Supersonic".

Yes, exactly. It's that part.

I hear bits of "Like a Prayer" and maybe a few other Madonna songs

Somewhat ironically, one of the more convincing songs on the album, "Big Girls Don't Cry," sounds exactly like a 2006 version of Wild Orchid, with Fergie's Taylor Dayne kid-sister act in full effect.
I don't know Wild Orchid.

Now you've got me racking my brain.

Does Fergie spell out the title in the chorus again?

Wild Orchid was a girl pop group Fergie was in during the late 90s. They hosted some music countdown show that was on ABC family that I watched when I was 11 or 12.
