NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Celebrity breakups are a totally different breed than normal people breakups.

The rest of us get to avoid our exes completely. We get to pine for them silently, and have the ability to stalk them peacefully from the comfort of our own computers.

Celebrities, on the other hand, have to see their former flames regularly, all the while smiling for the cameras and pretending they’re really happy to be friends.

Take J.Lo and Marc Anthony, for example. It’s been about a month since J.Lo dumped Marc’s increasingly boney posterior – and yet, the two were recently photographed beaching it up together in the Hamptons.

Gossip site TMZ questioned the former couple, who were seen together at  Sagg Main Beach in Southampton this week.  Lopez’s rep insisted that the visit was strictly parental.

“They are NOT back together — they were just visiting each other and the children,” the representative said.

Uh huh, there were definitely no children in TMZ’s beach pictures, and who visits their ex a few weeks after their break up?

Hanging out with your ex while rocking a bikini, those are some seriously mixed messages you’re sending him there J.Lo.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to go erase all my exes numbers, lest I start toying with the idea of a “platonic” beach vacation.
