Demi Moore Is Sorry She Forgot to Lay This One Rule Down for Ashton Kutcher

Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore
If we ever split, do me this one favor ...
Last November, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher publicly announced their separation and we, the un-celebrity public, heaved a collective “awww” and chalked the loss for Team Cougar. Just a month from the year anniversary of that revelation, the mister has long since moved on—not that he wasn’t testing the waters when he was still a married man, which is one reason they split up in the first place—and he’s now a hot ticket item with his one-time That '70s Show castmate, Mila Kunis.  

You know: The Mila Kunis who was just crowned Sexiest Woman Alive 2012 by Esquire earlier this month. The Mila Kunis who’s 29, waif-thin, and knew Ashton for the duration of his marriage to Demi. Dangit. She forgot to throw in a stipulation about not dating any of his hot co-workers if they were to ever part ways.

So you can imagine that Ms. Moore might be a little in her feelings about the hookup between her ex and his new main squeeze. And she reportedly is. According to a pal who blabbed to US Weekly: “She's not psyched about Ashton and Mila.” Uhh, probably not. 

It’s only been five months since Mila and Ashton got together, but you know as well as I do that that’s at least two years in warped famous people time since relationships in Hollywood move with the rapidity of middle school romances. But to the ex left to pick up the pieces after her man very openly cheats, very openly calls it quits, and then very openly moves on with one of the hottest chicks on the planet who he also happened to work with for years and years and years, it’s a hard, bitter pill to swallow.

Meanwhile, the divorce proceedings have stalled and poor Ms. Moore is just stuck in that awkward moment when you know your ex is living the life of Riley when your struggles aplenty have been all over the news. Eating disorders, stays in rehab, problems with her kids. All while Kelso hugs up on Jackie. Most of us have been there, Demi. This is one of those secret sisterhood of women moments that bond us together. Hang in there, keep looking pretty, hide behind that doe-eyed expression, and pretend, at least in public, that that crap doesn’t bother you one itty bitty little bit.

Then get home, call a girlfriend, and vent that ish out. You’ll get over it sooner than later and in the meantime, you’ll save a whole lot of face. Spoken from true, firsthand experience.

What’s easier: watching an ex very openly move on or forcing yourself to date when you’re not really over your ex?
