Wow! She was nasty at her wedding. I think she was jealous of your new and probably your weight loss too. Is she overweight? If she is, she could be bugged that you showed up at her wedding looking good and she couldn't manage to take off 5 pounds for the big day.

I wouldn't bother with her anymore. There's a saying that when we apply pressure to a person, their real personality comes out. I think that's the case here.

I agree with Ginger. What especially bothers me is that she pushed you. If it were just being cool toward you and seeming to be jealous at the wedding, I'd put it down to nerves on the big day. But there is no excuse for getting physical about it. I say let the friendship fade away and stick to being coolly polite when you run into her at mutual friends' events. And nice job on being classy at the wedding and not making even more of a scene. If it makes you feel better, your friend showed her true colors to her groom's family. Not a great way for her to begin her married life.

You did behave as a reasonable adult in response to her behavior at her wedding.

I'm with the others on this...she's jealous. If she hasn't apologized already, she's probably not going to...

Its really up to y ou if you want to continue with the friendship but it really doesn't sound like you're interested in that any longer. I can't say that I blame you. Friends are supposed to support each other, celebrate in each others victories. Yes its ok to be jealous of you but its how she handled it that is NOT ok!!!

Sorry she couldn't be a better friend to you! The man who called you classy was handled yourself graciously.
Congrats on your weight loss...btw!
