Need advice ASAP about a friendship

My best friend of 17 years spends more time with and talks to my ex-husband more than me...I feel like she has taken his side over mine even though they could never stand each other. She's the one that kept telling me to leave him. He always talked shit about her to me and I've told her that but she said she doesn't care... Should I just drop her and forget about her or what??

I think I would just confront her and ask her what is going on first.

I tried live trapping the cute, mocking rodents. I tried the snap traps to no avail. So I electrocuted them. I feel a little bad...but only a little.

If your friend can't be a friend it might be time to let go and move on. I know that can be easier said than done but you'll know if or when the time comes.

 Unless you talk with her you won't know anything.  Have a good talk, step back and decide what is best for you.

Every time I talk to her about it she gets pissed off, defensive, and manipulates everything to make it my fault...

Maybe she wanted him and that's why she encouraged you to leave him.

I'm thinking this also! Sorry!

She's married and he is no where near her type at all...

That's a little shady... I'd talk to her about it. If she was a true friend, she will respect your feelings and stop talking with your ex husband. If she continues to speak with your ex husband. You have your answer... She's not the friend you thought she was.

Talk to her, ask her what is going on.  If she won't answer you, or gives you an answer that doesn't sound logical - I would say - Drop her.  You need friends that will back you - not make you wonder what is going on all the time.

My best girlfriends always liked my husband and he was included sometimes in things the other husbands were not. It was strange. However they supported my decision to leave my husband.

Then the weirdest thing happened. They began leaving me out of everything and my exhusband's girlfriend took my place amongst them.
