The turd and the gilded cage.

As I write this, I do so in the knowledge that it's been pretty much ten years since we had to watch April make an ugly fool of herself not admitting to what an armpit Becky's life actually is. While we see a damaged person who craves human contact, the deluded ding-dong April has it in her head that a lonely existence where she's a walking, talking object lesson for every envious jerk who wants to console him or herself with the idea that people doing better than they are actually envy the also-ran muttering about putting on one pants leg on at a time is actually exalted and happy and Becky actually is having a great time really because that's what happens on television.

The reason that I mention this is that it's the justification she uses for her unpleasant habit of lashing out at anyone she perceives as having betrayed her. It isn't that she's got a lot of rage and jealousy and envy stored up ready to fling at someone who pisses her off, it's that someone is making fun of her even though they aren't. Eventually, people will probably stop engaging with her for fear that saying the wrong thing will lead to insane accusations and years of broken friendships.
