DEARSUGAR Needs Your Help: Ex Best Friends or Forgive and Forget?

Hi Everybody,
I recently received a question from a reader that I am having trouble answering. Do you think that you can help me out?

Dear Sugar
My friend came to me sobbing the other day with a confession. She told me that she is pregnant with my ex boyfriend's baby. What makes this ever so troubling is that we just broke up three weeks ago. She swore to me that he didn't cheat, and that they hooked up after our break up was final. She profusely apologized to me, but I was so upset I just walked away. I feel angry and betrayed.

I don't believe that friend's shouldn't hook up with friend's ex's. Not only am I angry with both of them, but I'm sad that I've lost my friend. This is especially hard because I know that she needs me right now. She's pregnant with an awful guy's baby, and I can't imagine that he is being very supportive - (need I remind you that I broke up with him for a reason).

She and I have been friends for so long, part of me wants to just forget it and help her. Another part of me wants to completely get away from both of them. Am I horrible? What should I do, I am so confused. Unclear Chloe
