LAURA'S LOVE LIFE ADVICE: Why You Should Never Ever Diss An Ex Over Facebook Or Twitter Like Kelly Osbourne Did

Kelly unleashed a tirade against former fiance Luke Worrall on the Internet. Here’s why airing your dirty laundry in public is an awful idea!

You know the expression ‘Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me’? I hate to say this, because she’s completely the victim here, but shame on Kelly Osbourne for not only thinking cheating former fiance Luke Worrall could change, but for going off about his flaws on Twitter! That is one big no-no you should ALL avoid!

The 26-year-old former reality star had planned a reunion with her philandering ex over the holidays, but things didn’t go as planned (remember ladies, once a cheater — always a cheater) and she took to the ‘net to air her grievances. “Luke Worrall is the biggest piece of s**, he has been trying to get back with me, I only came home for Xmas to see him. Meanwhile, he has been f***ing hundreds of girls…behind my back,” she tweeted, adding, “He is the worst thing that ever happened to me. I don’t give a f*** what happens to him anymore…I am and always will be too good for him…”

Never mind the fact that Kelly made a big-time mistake by thinking a tiger could change his stripes OR that she was trying to make it work with a guy five years her junior (hello, a 21-year-old should NOT be getting engaged!), but dissing an ex via Facebook or Twitter implies a lack of maturity on her part as well. The world does NOT need to know how you’ve been hurt or how vile an ex is. Telling your real friends is one thing, but telling all 900 of your Facebook ‘friends’ is quite another.

Kelly might have thought she was making Luke look bad, but she really made herself look foolish too. Although social media is wonderful, there are definitely downsides — such as the fact that we feel comfortable telling complete strangers every passing thought or emotion we have.

I don’t think Kelly got the revenge she was looking for by making Luke look bad — and now each and every one of her Twitter pals knows just how much he hurt her, as does Luke. If something goes awry with an ex, keep it to yourself. And no, I don’t mean suffer in silence, I simply mean keep it off the web. Your former BF doesn’t need to see how much you loathe him or miss him. Silence is golden, after all…
