Brandi Glanville Says She Won’t Fall for Her Ex Again

OMG 11

Brandi GlanvilleAt this point it's no secret that half of the things Brandi Glanville says are for attention. I mean -- she's a reality star, it's the nature of the business. With that said, though, the Real Housewives star took to Twitter the other day to stir the pot a little bit. Offering some words of advice to her 350,000+ followers, she tweeted: "If an 'ex' reaches back out to u with a 'hey' or 'sup' text, do not fall 4 it! They don't want you back they just want 2 make sure ur still invested."

Hmmm, an ex hitting up Brandi? Of course -- our first thought goes to ex-husband Eddie Cibrian. Amidst wife LeAnn Rimes' reality show dreams, could he have a wandering eye? Who knows.

I will say this: as hard as it is to come to terms with, Brandi has a point. If a chunk of time's gone by, it's very rare that an ex reaching out to you is a GOOD thing.

Getting over a breakup can be hard. When time passes and you both move on -- it can be alarming to see a message pop up from an old flame when you least expect it. In that moment, thoughts of the old feelings dance through your mind and your heart skips a beat.

The reality? Oftentimes an ex is texting you because something else isn't going the way they hoped it to be. Sure, there are certain instances where ex-lovers become good friends -- I won't deny that. But in most situations, your partner just wants to see if they can gauge your interest again. My friends and I call it an "emotional booty call," when a man you've been with in the past is looking to feel good about himself, and he hopes you'll give him that boost.

So it's your choice: You can either cave to the text, chat it up, do you. Or you could ignore it. It's important to think of what you want to come from the interaction, and if it'll leave you off in a better or worse place. Sometimes, the "I miss you" you're hoping for doesn't feel as good once the words are actually said.

Do you keep in touch with your exes? Do you think Brandi and Eddie are texting?

I'm friends with some of my exes on Facebook, and we still chat about our respective lives.  I sort of think of it as being grown ups. ;-)  One of them has a very nice gal right now who's great w/ his 2 kids.  I'm hoping he pops the question to her - they make a great couple =)  I have great memories with him too, as friends, and when we dated, but I prefer the friendship.

Brandy tweeted that wasn't talking about Eddie and I believed her...until I read your post and realized that LeeAnn won't believe her. LOL. I love Ms. Glanville!

Brandi would never go back to Eddie. Everyone who read her book knows that.
Who wants a cheater? Well, there is one person, but it's not Brandi.

Outside of the kids I doubt Brandi would give Eddie the time of day she is in a better place. She has been there, done, that had that and over that, so why should want a repeat. She has come to far to go backwards.

she would talk to him just to stick a pin up leeann butt and leeann deserves it. eddie just waiting for the next bigger and better thing to come along. once a cheater always a cheater. cat don't change their stripes.

I do keep in touch with my ex, with his family, and his new girlfriend...I think it's important to leave an unhappy relationship BEFORE it gets so bad that you CAN'T stay friends...I was once in love with him, why wouldn't I want to stay friends?  Think about it!

Come on, it's stupid to think that Eddie is her only Ex. Its also a pretty far stretch that he would even consider a reconcilliation with her, after all of the drama. The Stir used to be my goto page, but lately You are waaaaay too much biased opinion for me. What happened?

Cheryl Legnosky Dorman

to Hexxuss...I agree...we are adults, after all!!!  AND, if we aren't adults, maybe we shouldn't be in relationships?
