Chantelle Houghton has revealed what helped her cope with the pain after her messy split from her cross-dressing fiancé, Alex Reid. Thankingin her New! magazine column this week, the former “Celebrity Big Brother” star admits that speaking to the cage-fighter’s ex-wife has been “a real comfort.”
The 29-year-old star says, "Katie Price recently contacted me via my management. It’s so nice to talk to someone who’s been through the same thing with Alex as what I’ve been through,” according to a report by MailOnline.
The mother-of-one goes on, "It’s hard for my other friends to identify with. Speaking to her has been a real comfort. She’s come out the other side and it gives me hope that I’ll be OK to meet another bloke one day."
34-year-old Katie Price and Alex Reid tied the knot in February 2010 after a whirlwind romance. The pair split in January 2011. While Chantelle started dating Alex in May 2011, the relationship broke apart early this September only 11 weeks after the birth of their now five-month-old daughter, Dolly.
The glamor model also addresses the rumors that Alex is keen to date Katie again in her new column. She says, "I read in a magazine that Alex is keen to get back with Katie Price now she’s split with Leandro Penna. I don’t think she’d go anywhere near him!"
Last month, Chantelle Houghton made explosive claims that her fiancé, who has a female alter-ego named Roxanne, once turned their home into a "sex dungeon.” Speaking to The Sun, she said, “He had my false eyelashes on and there were sex toys all over the room, with porn playing on the TV.”
She also revealed on her Twitter page that she found text messages from Alex inviting another man for sex. She wrote, “I found text messages on Alex's phone when she was 6 weeks old, it was to a man and he was arranging to meet up with him as Roxanne for sex.”
She says in her column, "At the time of writing this, I haven’t had a reaction from Alex in response to my revelations about his sex life last week. I’m starting to feel loads better now that I’m out of his clutches.”
She continues to write, "And now a friend of a man called Rob Cooper has come out of the woodwork to say that Alex came on to him. He’s not even the man I was referring to! So this is another man I didn’t know about. Now I’m like, 'Can I trust a man ever again?' It all makes me wish I’d left Alex when I was pregnant but I just didn’t have the strength and I believed what he told me."
