How should Emily deal with her breakup from Brad?

Emily Maynard has been staying in with her 5-year-old daughter, Ricki, since dumping fiance Brad Womack by phone. What she hasn’t done: gone off clubbing or finding a rebound guy to mend her broken heart. But should she be?

“Emily has been at home and Brad hasn’t been there in weeks,” a source tells “Ricky’s mom has been by the house and Emily has been shuttling little Ricki back and forth to school. She hasn’t been out with the girls much — and she’s not talking to everyone about the breakup either.”

So what should Emily — and what should YOU do — after a bad breakup?

I’m not going to tell you not to go for that rebound guy, but you should be careful. If it someone who’s going to be a distraction or a bit of fun, then by all means, go for it. Just make sure you’re honest and up front about where you’re at —  be fair to him.

What you really should be doing is taking time to heal. Go for the jumbo pints of Ben & Jerry’s, sappy films like Sleepless in Seattle and quality time with your best friends. Go ahead and don’t be afraid to cry — let it all out.

There’s no right way to cope with a breakup: do whatever makes you feel happier. Remember, nothing heals wounds like time.
