Chantelle Houghton and Alex Reid have stopped fighting
The reality stars - who split last month shortly after the birth of their five-month-old daughter - have called a truce on their feud and have reached an "amicable" relationship for the sake of Dolly, but Chantelle is still struggling to cope in the wake of the break-up.
The blonde beauty told new! magazine: "I`ve managed to get myself into a different place emotionally now. Alex and I are talking and things are a lot better between us. I feel like we`ve both had our say.
"He came to see Dolly last week and we chatted. It was amicable. I still get really upset, because it`s a reminder ... there`s a gaping hole when he goes. It`s so hard.
"When you have a baby together, it connects you forever so part of me is bound to still love him. We might not be together, but at least Dolly can see we`re OK. It`s all about her now."
Chantelle felt "utterly betrayed" when she discovered Alex liked to dress up as his female alter-ego Roxanne and couldn`t cope with his irrational behaviour, but she has decided to put their differences behind her and focus on Dolly.
However, that didn`t stop her from angrily tweeting this weekend: "Another day, another girl messaging me saying Alex is asking them for sex. Knock yourself out the lot of you."
