When it comes to etiquette, manners and overall good behavior, even celebrities need help navigating the rough waters of stardom! It’s a good thing Countess LuAnn de Lesseps of The Real Housewives of New York City is joining forces with OK! to school them on the right thing to do! In a rough situation, we just ask, “What would the countess do?” This week, the countess chimes in on Tom Cruise moving to NYC and the possibility of Chris Brown and Rihanna partying together.
Tom Cruise is getting ready to move to NYC to be closer to Suri after splitting from Katie Holmes. Do you think it's important for split parents to be in the same city or can they make it work from opposite coasts?
It’s definitely easier on divorced parents and their children if everyone lives in the same city but this isn’t always possible due to jobs and other factors. For Tom Cruise, buying a new pad in New York City isn’t going to break the bank for but most divorced families, travel and lodging for visitation can get expensive. If both parents are committed to spending time with their kids, they can make it work wherever they live.
Tip: Use video chat to visit with your kids when you can’t be there in person.
Rumors abound that Chris Brown and Rihanna have been partying together in St. Tropez. Do you think there is ever a time where you could become friends with or get back together with a violent ex?
Rihanna has forgiven Chris and if she wants to hang out with him in St. Tropez, that’s her decision to make. I think it’s OK if Chris is her friend but it’s a bad idea for anyone (Rihanna included) to get back into a relationship with someone who has violent tendencies and anger management issues.
Tip: Why not choose a new man who would never hurt you rather than a man who already has?
