Selena Gomez, you are a sweet and forgiving young woman, but there’s no law that says you have to be friends with everyone — especially someone who betrayed you the way Kendall Jenner did! You were polite and civil toward your former friend when you saw her at an intimate dinner party in NYC on May 6 — and that’s the most anyone can expect from you!
Selena Gomez — after Kylie and Kendall Jenner went behind your back and sent your then-boyfriend Justin Bieber sexy selfies in an attempt to woo him away from you, I wouldn’t blame you if you NEVER wanted to speak to either of them again. That said, you do seem to travel in the same circles as the Jenner sisters, especially Kendall, so an occasional run-in is inevitable. In order to avoid those super-uncomfortable moments, you may want to forgive Kendall — but you don’t have to be her friend.
Selena Gomez: Forgive Kendall Jenner But Don’t Be Her Friend
Selena, you’ve been under the same roof as Kendall TWICE in a row this week. The first time, at the Met Ball in NYC on May 5, you managed to avoid bumping into her in all her ball gown glory. But your luck ran out when you both showed up to a private dinner party hosted by designer Eli Mizrahi in NYC on May 6.
Selena, you said your hellos and were “friendly” to Kendall, but then you took your seat on the “opposite side of the table” from her, where you spent time chatting with Sports Illustrated model Gigi Hadid, an insider tells Us Weekly. And you know what, Selena? That’s totally okay!
Selena Gomez: You Were Right To Avoid Kendall Jenner At Dinner Party
Selena, you are one of the most forgiving people in North America — as evidenced by the many, MANY times you have taken Justin back — and you probably want to put this whole Justin-Jenner sisters drama behind you. I think that’s great, and making your peace with Kendall will probably help you heal and finally move forward with your life after Justin’s latest and most hurtful betrayal.
But Selena, just because you forgive Kendall doesn’t mean you have to hang out with her again. So next time you find yourself in close quarters with Kendall, do exactly what you did at this dinner party: be classy, be polite and sure, be friendly if you want. But there’s no need to invest any more time in being friends with Kendall. It’s not that she’s a bad person — she’s not — but she has proven that she’ll never be the kind of true friend to you that say, Taylor Swift is.
Plus, hanging out with Kendall will only remind you of the fact that Kylie Jenner has started spending alone time with your ex Justin, and that’s the LAST thing you want to think about right now as you focus on mending your broken heart and moving on.
Do you agree, HollywoodLifers? Was Selena right to give Kendall the cold shoulder or do you think they should be friends again? Let me know!
