Be there for that person, skip all the trash talk about the other one or victimnasing of any kind.
Make time for that person.
Do thing's with that person, invite that person to join you to do what ever.
But do that person need to be alone let that person have it's time for themselves, some needs this to move on. but keep an eye on that person so that person doesn't get stuck in some bad loop of self destructive behavior like a normal state of being.
Listen to what that person has to say and try to understand what that person are trying to communicate. don't try to fix what ever that person are coming with, that person only needs support of someone that cares and are present in the present time.1
I really like the saying
“I pity the one who cheated on me, bcs I lost someone who didn’t love me. She on the other hand lost someone who loved her”5

Betrayal is one of the most painful experiences to go through. A sympathetic ear and comforting hugs are the best remedies for a broken heart.
People who are hurting inside after a betrayal tend to want to talk non-stop and relive their experience by repeating the same things over and over. And that's good for them. They have many questions and constantly ask
" why"So being patient and genuinely listening every time they want to vent will be valued.
You can't take away their pain, but you can ease it by just being there for them to talk to whenever they need you... day and night if need be1
You give them comfort in any of its forms when they are sad and depressed, and let them vent and talk to you about it. Let them speak, mirror their vocabulary, don't force any of you opinions that they didn't already have about him (and don't let them blame themselves, remind them of things that will help them remember that it's not their fault).
If they are in the angry phase, listen to them too and support their anger by agreeing with them but don't add to their anger. Just be like "are you serious?" "Wth!" "I can't believe it!" Stuff like that because sometimes they get upset or guilty of you turn on them too. Let them have the anger all to themselves, they deserve it and should have the spotlight.
Hopefully they will feel better and ask them what they need or would like you to do for them... everyone deals with things differently, and so it's important to ask them what they need, and it may even change from day to day.
Hope she feels better, it's frustrating to see a friend go through that :(
