Terri Seymour is Friends With Her Ex, Simon Cowell. But Can Ex-Lovers Really Ever Be Friends?

Thu, February 25, 2010 9:01pm EST by 4 Comments

Are YOU friends with any of your exes? Or do you just pretend to be – and get insanely jealous with you see him with his new girlfriend?

We’ve got to hand it to Terri Seymour, the girl is one cool cucumber. Exhibit A – witness her laid-back behavior around ex-boyfriend Simon Cowell , 50 (who she has to INTERVIEW for her show, Extra, by the way – such an indignity!), but the way she actually hugs his new girlfriend, make-up artist Mezghan Hussainy, 36? Astounding!

But how does Terri really, 36, really feel about her ex and Simon’s new woman? We’d be seething inside and internally visualizing pulling Mezghan’s hair! This leads us to wonder: can you ever really be best buds with your ex-love?

Lynn Harris, co-creator of Breakupgirl.net, says yes! “Sometimes you were friends all along, and that probalby was the way it was supposed to be,” she tells HollywoodLife.com. “Sometimes the relationship was based on passion, without the aspects of friendship.”

But is it a good idea to be besties with an ex-lover? We’re skeptical. “It’s nice and makes life easier,” admits Lynn. “If you run into them, you should say ‘hi’, but it’s not a judgement of your skills in a relationship if you’re not. However, if you did have a fondness for your ex and it was an OK breakup, then I can’t imagine not being civil to them.”

Rhonda Findling, psychotherapist and author of Don’t Call That Man! disagrees for normal folk – but says that celebrities often play by a different set of rules. “I don’t want to talk to anyone that ends it with me, and I certainly don’t want to meet their new girlfriend, but in Hollywood things are different. There’s no hard and fast rule here,” Rhonda tells us. “As for Terri, it’s possible that she’s faking it for the public, and she’s just trying to show that she doesn’t care. I would suggest she not talk to her ex, because it can open up a lot of feelings and wounds.”

Who needs that? What about you ladies? Are you friends with your exes, and if so, how in the heck did you manage to pull it off? Tell us your stories here!

Part 3. I know Terri knows he will be unfaithful, after the wedding and honeymoon. But I want to read her comments on the type of person Simon is. When it comes to having a family. Will he be a good father. Will he regret having a family. Simon is a Libra and I’m a Libra. We need our space and must have our freedom to go wherever we want to go with nothing or no one holding us back. Meaning wife and kids. I have never been married and never will. Were always looking for the next best thing. Something new and fresh.
Simon’s mother made the comment that out of all of Simon’s girlfriends. Terri is the only one who really loved Simon. The rest just saw money. Mezhgan is a gold digger.
If Mezhgan wants Simon to marry her,she better hook him quick! But where Married or just his girlfriend or rich in oil. It will not last.

Not only is Terri a lady, and very cool about his so call new love. Terri knows that after the wedding and honeymoon. Simon will not be faithful to Mezhgan. And I hope he is unfaithful to her. Look at what they both did to Terri. Mezhgan and Simon slipped around for years, behind Terri’s. Pay back is hell and it will not take long.

Once a social butterfly, always…….He better not sign a pre-nup! I totally agree – he may have children but she will slowly evaporate from his life because his ego is so big that he will be with other women before she has a chance to polish that ring!
