Last I checked Brandi dumped him, on some pretty arbitrary grounds that suggested that she didn't really value their relationship to begin with.
Now hold on a sec, I'm kind of on the defending-Stan side here, but I'm little bothered by this.
She didn't want to be second to his pride. No one should have to be second to their SO's pride. That's ridiculous. She loved him, possibly still does, but she had to take herself out of what might have turned into a bad situation. That doesn't mean she didn't value their relationship. She just saw that they had different ideas about priorities and jumped ship. There's nothing wrong with that, and it doesn't make her feelings invalid.
All he said was "I've never told anyone I was in a relationship when I wasn't," which was true, and then exchanged an innuendo with Cyndi which would have been flirty if the circumstances didn't obviously prohibit flirtation-- downgrading them to barbs. It's spun as him putting his pride first, but... really, I think she blew it completely out of proportion.
I suppose that's the sort of thing that varies from person to person. I wasn't bothered by whether she took it the wrong way or whatever, just that your statement was vague enough to suggest that she didn't care about him simply for wanting better for herself. Could have been a misunderstanding.
