I agree with you Dragonlady, and I would like to add one more point to your list. I also don't think that all of this would be a problem if Vicki had not taught Brianna growing up that manipulation is a way to show love. In all the years Vicki has been on the show, we've seen MANY ways that she's manipulated Brianna and Michael. When they do what she wants, they're rewarded with something like a car. When they do things she doesn't like, they're threatened with having material luxuries taken away. As wrong as I think it is for Brianna to move in and then try to dictate to Vicki how she lives her life, I also see that Brianna is dealing with Vicki exactly like Vicki deals with her. Brianna can't hold material goods over Vicki's head. But she can hold time spent with her and Troy over Vicki's head, and she is. Since Michael is living somewhere without letting Vicki know where exactly it is, I suspect he does the same sorts of things with her. Vicki is simly getting back the values she instilled in her kids.
