LAURA'S LOVE LIFE ADVICE: What Should You Do If Your Man Is Secretly Hanging Out With His Ex, Like Brad & Jen Might Be Doing To Angie?

Fri, February 18, 2011 11:06am EDT by 15 Comments

Red alert! How would YOU feel if your guy was spending serious alone time with his ex — and he conveniently forgot to tell you?

Warning: Brad Pitt might soon have to cover up some big-time bruises on his perfect butt, because chances are his partner Angelina Jolie is going to kick his derriere incessantly if this new report is true. Star magazine claims that Brad has been secretly meeting up with ex-wife Jennifer Aniston. What should Angie — and more importantly, what should YOU — do in a similar situation?

Take this with a grain of salt, but the tab says that not only did Brad and Jen take a ‘private meeting’ in the office of his entertainment company, Plan B, but they’ve also had a 1 A.M. tete-a-tete in NYC . More worrying than their brief meetings is the claim that they’ve been in constant contact: texting, emailing and talking on the phone. Uh-oh.

If this is true, Angelina has every right to be not only furious, but worried. If your man is devoting so much of his time and attention (and let’s be honest, how much time does Brad really have with six kids, a long-term life partner, his own production company and his thriving career?) to an ex, he’s finding something lacking in his current relationship.

Perhaps Angie is too dominating, or too good. Maybe she doesn’t listen to Brad the way that Jen did. Who knows what goes on behind closed doors? However, we do know this: if he’s hanging out with his ex and his lady doesn’t know about it, Brad and Ange have big-time problems. The fact that he’s hanging with an ex alone is bad, but the lack of communication and consideration is abysmal.

So, you know the situation sounds pretty dire. But what should you actually DO if your man is sniffing around his ex?

For starters, you need proof that it’s actually happening. You don’t want to go crazy and jealously accuse him of something he’s not doing, such as a close pal telling you ‘Oh, I thought I saw your boyfriend hanging out with his ex at Tenjune.’ It has to be FACT. Once you have the proof, then you have something to work with.

You never, ever want to make your man feel cornered or threatened, even if he is a complete jerk. When you confront him, you have to be casual — and initially pretty vague. ‘So-and-so told me she saw you and Jen hanging in the Meatpacking District a few days ago. I told her it couldn’t possibly be you — you hate the Meatpacking District!’ Watch his reaction carefully — if he lies or evades your carefully loaded non-question, you’re either going to have a fight on your hands…or a breakup.

There are two sides to every story, and chances are, if Brad IS hanging out with Jen again, it’s because Angelina has forbidden it. As a courtesy, Brad should be respecting his baby mama’s wishes, and as a courtesy to him, Angie shouldn’t be giving him ultimatums out of jealousy.

When there’s a lack of honesty in a relationship and things are being covered up or kept secret, it isn’t working. Sometimes you just need to cut your losses and walk away.

Man, is Aniston ugly in that photo with Pitt or what?! Whooo DOGGIE! Let me guess, Laura the author, looks JUST like Aniston before the nose jobs, hence this Angelina b*tch smack to the face. LOL One question? How does it feel Laura to make a living beating up on a family of eight, and rooting for their demise. These are people hon, not cartoons. So your homely girl fantasizing that Pitt will run back to Aniston, might be fun in the comfort of your own home with your 20 cats. But in the real world Laura, actually voicing those thoughts, and advertising for the tabloids that count on lonely bitter coots like yourself to gleefully swallow the bullsh*t, is counterproductive, and only make you look like a sad character hating on the pretty girl. Grow up. You’re an embarrassment.

Those who believe this story need to get a life and possibly a mental evaluation. If Jen is willing to sneak around with Brad after he publicly dumped her to be with Angelina, then she’s the sad/pitiful one in this equation.

Brad and Jen sneaking around behind Angie’s back, Jen’s fans could only wish, one look at that picture of Brad and Jen together,says Brad Pitt and ham sandwich Jennifer Aniston, Not! Jen looks too ugly and plain, Brad went from beast to beauty, humanitarian and oscar winner and mother of his beautiful kids.

Oh puhhleaazzee!!! This is just a tabloid story…Brad is NOT seeing Jen behind anybody’s back. Brad left her because he did not love her anymore…just get over it…
People “fall” out of love and have to move on. It is nobody’s fault that their marriage ended, but everybody insists in finding fault by blaming it on somebody else. That is simply not true. I have never seen a truly happy marriage ending because of somebody else. There are ALWAYS undeliying problems but it is easier to play the blaming game. I hope Brad and Angelina are very happy together and I wish them the best. Love is a very hard thing to find and one MUST jump at the opportunity to enjoy it. Peace ;-)

This concocted rumour is about 5 years old, the photo is about 8 years old. Recycled, recycle.

Every time I read a story like this I think of my best friend in the early 60s who married a Robert Redford lookalike and was the total envy of every gal in Atlanta! The way they met was tres romantic. The way he swept her off her feet was straight out of Gone With The Wind. Divorced, father of two, ten years older than my friend, they were a beautiful couple. A few months after their marriage she overheard a conversation about his seeing his ex while she was at work or shopping. She dismissed it. One day she came home from work early (she had the flu) and found him in their bed with his ex! Oh to be a fly on that wall! She left the apt., checked herself into a hospital and the marriage was over. Why? She found out his ‘ex’ was a mutual friend of theirs and his name was Walter!! You never know do you?

Something like this happen to me but when I told my ex woman to tell him to stop calling me, she responded he told her I was chasing him. WOW!! I said if he cheats on his woman with his ex-wife he is nothing but GARBAGE.

Really? Home wrecker? What a stupid concept! And even if it was possible to “wreck” a marriage (which is NOT) She was not the one married to her. Why do we always have to blame somebody when a marriage falls apart? Could’ve been that he did not want to be married anymore? IF, there was somebody to be blamed (which there isn’t), it should be the person one is married to. Denial is an ugly thing and blaming somebody else is always easier than face our own contribution to a situation.
