When the world was let in on the fact that Ashton Kutcher cheated on Demi Moore, my heart broke for her. For a million reasons. One, her husband cheated on her. Two, it wasn't a private problem to be dealt with, as the entire Us Weekly-reading population, and their +1s, knew he was cheating, too. And three, let's face it, Demi Moore is significantly older than Ashton, so his cheating -- with a woman much younger than she -- had to be a blow to her ego. All around, sounds like a crap situation made crappier.
But then I heard that, despite reports of her moving on with cute (and, yes, younger) actor, Martin Henderson, she's still calling Ashton.
And I was like, Dude.
According to the always elusive "insider," Demi just can't get over Ashton -- so she continues to call him on a regular basis -- and it's really starting to piss off her kids.
I mean, look. If Demi's not over Ashton yet, it's understandable. The two were married and together for a long time. It's not like people have the ability to magically shut off their emotions. But perhaps she should stop calling him. I can't imagine that's doing any good.
We've all had our hearts broken before -- and I think it's safe to assume that most of us have made a phone call or sent a text when we probably shouldn't have. But there comes a point. A point when it needs to stop. A point when it becomes unhealthy.
Demi Moore may be getting some form of instant gratification when she hears Ashton's voice, but at this stage in the game, it kind of seems like it's doing more harm than good. She's a beautiful woman with three lovely daughters -- lovely daughters who wish she'd heed their advice. She doesn't need Ashton. And judging by the way things turned out, she never did.
Have you ever called an ex when you know you shouldn't have?
