I get the feeling she's not a "girl girl", doesn't like women, her family are her friends, maybe superficially a few men friends of wills.
I imagine the only people she trusts are her mother, brother and pippa (I'm sure they keep most things from her dad, he seems a nice fellow and not one for games and designs) JMO
I'd die without my girlfriends, geez I'd be in jail for murdering my hubby if not for them
they can always top my story and bring me down off the ledge LOL They add a dimension to my life, when I'm with them I'm free to be just me, it's such a relief sometimes to step out of your "life" and just have fun and laugh, alone with my girlfriends is just liberating to me. Not having any sisters, I'm free to pick my own
