I think she likes to surround herself with paid employees or people who are getting something from her in return [Cami]. It’s so easy to trick yourself into thinking the people on your payroll really like you, and they never tell you the truth, they just tell you want you want to hear. Unlike real friends and family.

It makes me sad for Heather and the kids. Are there any real life friends that come around there or just a constant parade of pseudo-employees?

Tyrant is a paid companion. Not THAT way. Just to cater to her neuroses and type a few letters now and then.
