What to do when your mate as gone AWOL thanks to the new love in her life starring Paris Hilton, Doug Reinhardt and Brody Jenner.

The gossip columns are reporting that Paris Hilton is stopping her boyfriend from seeing his friends. “The Hills” star Brody Jenner hasn’t seen Doug Reinhardt since he reconciled with the socialite in August and insists their friendship is now over.

Brody told Closer magazine: “We used to be best friends, now I never see him. Some people are so involved in relationships they lose their other friends. Partners come and go your friends are there for you always. I’m done. Paris has taken him away.”

Who has had this happen to them before? I know I have! You do everything with your friend from pedicures to parties then suddenly she gets a new man and poof! You’re all by yourself again.

I get that people want to spend a lot of time with the one they love and who doesn’t want to enjoy that honeymoon phase when all you do is eat, sleep and have sex. But neglecting your friends is the fastest route to relationship melt-down because you lose your individuality, spark and, well, conversation skills!
