If you think you and your new beau can’t be friendly with your ex, think again. People reports that Avril Lavigne and boyfriend Brody Jenner recently partied with Lavigne’s ex-husband, Deryck Whibley of Sum 41.  Even with her ex nearby, the pop star and her reality-TV boyfriend couldn’t keep their hands off of each other at the Hollywood club.  Reports say that Lavigne, 26, and Jenner, 27, were kissing and snuggling up to each other all night after Whibley, 30, spent some time chatting with them at their table.  The PDA-friendly twosome have been together since the spring.  Here’s hoping that the couple that parties together (with an ex), stays together!

How friendly should you be with your partner’s ex?

Ouch!  If being a teenage mom wasn’t hard enough, things just got harder for the MTV’s 16 and Pregnant star, Maci Bookout.  After splitting up with her baby daddy Ryan Edwards, the devoted Teen Mom star tells US Weekly that she and her ex-beau have a hard time agreeing on how their son Bentley should be raised.  She talks about how she struggled to ween her 22-month-old son off his pacifier, and learned that Edwards gives Bentley his pacifier whenever the child is with him.  Bookout says, “I think Ryan spoils Bentley and really has no boundaries as far as discipline.  With me, I don’t want Bentley to grow up and be a brat when he’s 4 years old.”

MTV’s hit series Jersey Shore premiered its second season last Thursday, and it’s already seen its share of hookups.  The cast uses the term “creeping,” which basically means picking up girls with the intention of a late night hook-up – and nothing else.  In reference to his desire to leave New Jersey for the winter in favor of sunny Miami, Pauly D said, “You can’t creep in this weather.  You can’t do anything.  Girls don’t come out in this weather.  They stay in the house.”  Later in the episode, Vinny vowed that he would hook up with 60 different girls in 60 days, telling the camera that if he misses one day, he’ll simply double up on the next.  The newly single Ronnie took creeping to the next level, letting loose in a nightclub upon arriving in Miami.

The casual hookup is not for everyone. But if no one gets hurt, should people get it out of their system while they are still young?

(Spoiler alert!) Last week on ABC’s The Bachelorette, a competitive reality dating game show, Ali Fedotowsky, had a one-on-one date with contestant Ty.  She found out he ended his previous marriage because his ex-wife worked, and he was looking for a traditional stay-at-home mom.  Traditional is something that Ali is certainly not.  “I imagine a lot of the women cringed when they heard Ty make the comment about women being presidents of companies,” Fedotowsky told Reality TV Calender last week. “Ha ha. Trust me, I cringed too.”  Ty ended up being eliminated last night – Ali was still concerned about his traditional values.

What should you do if you’re dating a man who expects a “traditional” wife, and you are anything but?
