'Bachelor' Juan Pablo & His Ex Get a Little Too Close for Comfort (PHOTO)

OMG 12

Juan Pablo Galavis & Carla Rodriguez

Huh. I guess no one can accuse him of being anything less than amicable to his baby mama, because Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis and his ex, Carla Rodriguez, seem to have a pretty close relationship. Like to the point where they kind of appear to be nothing short of best buds.

Or at least that's what we can probably assume, based on this photo of Juan Pablo and Carla sitting together reading an US Weekly containing an article all about what a shitty dude he supposedly is.

Yep. Apparently Juan Pablo's exes are quick to throw him under the bus, deeming him a "playboy" and saying he will "never settle for one woman."

But it looks like Carla doesn't have a problem with him.

And that's why whomever he does wind up with after the final rose ceremony (assuming he actually gets engaged) should be relieved and happy that she's found herself such a gem of a guy.

Some women will probably see Juan being chummy with Camila's mom as a negative thing -- but personally, I think it's pretty darn endearing that they've remained good friends for their daughter's sake. Breakups can be so messy sometimes, and it's tough to get along with each other even if there are children involved.

It's obvious that Juan Pablo and Carla realize that they need to have a healthy relationship to set a good example for their daughter -- which also speaks volumes about Juan Pablo's character in general.

It's clear that he knows how to have positive breakups after ending things with a woman instead of trashing her reputation and throwing insults her way for the sake of getting revenge or whatever.

But I gotta say, looking at this pic of Juan Pablo and Carla? I can't help but wonder why in the hell the two of them don't give things another shot. Aren't they adorbs together? Even the matching sunglasses make them look like a couple -- not simply two people who share a daughter.

If Juan Pablo is engaged, hopefully things will work out and he'll live happily ever after and all that good stuff. But if not? Well ... there's a reason for everything, if you catch my drift.

Are you friendly with your exes?

Uh huh. It would not surprise me one bit if he did end up with his ex again at some point, as more than "friends." If it ever stopped at just that. One just gets that vibe, and I have seen it a million times before. No way I would go anywhere near JB if I were single and looking. But I kinda think he should stay with his ex if she is as great as he has said. They already have a daughter together, etc. Just my 2 cents.

I don't get along with my exes, I really had one true boyfriend of 3 yrs before getting married with my Hubby of 18 yrs. When relationship is over it over unless their kids involve. @ that point get along for sake of kids n that it

ABC forget the back pedaling to save your season it is in the toilet already with lots of viewers gone bye bye. We all know he does not get engaged and he is in love with Carla look how he leans in to her in this photo. He is in love with her.

I think he will end  up with no one on the show and be back with baby momma in the end. Who knows mayvbe it was all planned for money and fame.. If so we are the silly ones for falling for it all in the 1st place.The show makes us think he is a nice guy.. But sometimes I wonder about it. Remember he gave up his soccer dream for baby and momma... and makes sure everyone knows that.. ABC your greatest season ever is slowly slipping away..

I HAVE BEEN DIVORCED FROM MY EX FOR 13 YEARS, WE HAVE 2 CHILDREN AND ONE GRANDSON! WE ARE THE BEST OF FRIENDS. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG IN HAVING A GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR EX, BECAUSE IT WORKS FOR THE CHILDREN TO SEE BOTH PARENTS GETTING ALONG. WHOEVER MARRYS INTO A THE FAMILY NEEDS TO BE A STRONG PERSON AND REALIZE THAT THERE IS NO THREAT BECAUSE WE HAVE TO GET ALONG FOR THE CHILDREN

Not @ all to me... have four children w/ me exhusband, cheated on me financially and unfaithful, giving disease called gardnerella and get HEPA B shot everytime he travels,. Yes it is good for children and best interest for the children to be amicably UNFORTUNATELY my ex has tried to kill me four times, so that he would collect half million dollars on my insurance and half million dollars for my two kids on this criminal activities planted an inch diameter umbrella used for construction.  HE WAS AND IS THE ONE who had nothing to do with me after I gave 18 yrs of my life to him, my children and filed accusations after accusations against me and my fiancee at that time. WHILE he remarried his 3rd mistress (first than me), an agogo dancer in Japan (called Japauki), and gave me disease??? Sad sad tried to forget him but it is unbelievable of what he did to me and my children... HE ONLY CARES HIMSELF AND HID mistress/new wife...He is the most evil man in the world I ever encountered in this earth...german american from ALLSENSORS CORP of MH, CA.95037...

The bachelor is very nice & great looking. Hope the ladies know what they're getting themselves into. Who really wants their hubby to be such awesome friends with their exes & may even confine in them about issues w/ you? This is unsettling. Personally, not worth the stress/headaches & heartbreak (very likely since he doesn't seem to stay w/ a woman for very long). It could be that it's difficult for him to stay content w/ just one pretty lady when some many wants him.

I don't think that Juan Pablo was ever going to pick a wife,he is too big of a flirt... he loves women too much to make a comment to them stay with his baby's Mom...

Friends with my exes? Nope. 1st was abusive, which is why I left & refuse to talk to him - I have more self-respect than putting myself through ANYTHING like that again. Second one is the one who doesn't even send our son a B-Day card, and hasn't for years now.  I keep asking my son if he wants to email him (no phone #, so only have the email as a contact since he moved), and thankfully he DOES reply to those, but he's never the one to reach out first. He doesn't even know he's on heart meds.  His loss, my son is a great kid =)
