So yeah I need some advice from people out with the situation, because best friend beef can be quite tricky.
Basically, my best friend is quite selfish, and always has been. This has never been a problem before, but I think she's getting worse. In the last 6 months, she's changed mega-dramatically, from a quietish girl who was quite fashionable and hip, to this ridiculous evil beast that I'm ashamed to know. She's lost loads of weight (which again, is fair enough if that's what makes you feel good), become 20 times more vain and has started to act like she's better than everyone. At first I was really concerned for her, that her weight-loss wasn't all together healthy, and that she was getting moody, but after a while I just couldn't be bothered with the drama.
But now, like I said, she thinks she's above everyone. She'll pick apart people on the street (like verbally at me), enemies and friends-of-friends — but she's super nice to them in person. She also has a knack of making me and my other best friend feel like sh*t for being us: e.g. "you're not hanging around to see that band, they're such losers" or "omg remember that hideous skirt you had."
And that's all superficial and bearable, but it's the emotional stuff that's really got me down. This girl is the most super-sensitive person you'll ever meet. Everything you do has to be considered as to how it will affect her. For instance, years ago at Uni, this one guy she liked tried to kiss me, and knowing that she liked him, I pushed him off (even though he was cute). But she still fell out with me and made a big scene over it because that was really insensitive to her (I know, right?!).

So with that in mind, you wouldn't expect her to be the type of person to always go after my "leftovers," would you? Well, from the last year or so, you'd be wrong. And the one that hurts the most is when she got with the guy that I had previously been all smitten with who really hurt me (both emotionally and physically). In our shared flat. Then lied to me about it the next day. Only he got her pregnant. She had an abortion and still didn't tell me. My other best friend accidentally did when she was drunk. But all my best friend did was go on about how sh*t she felt about it and I should know what she's like about opening up about stuff and how upset she was.
Yet ol' mug-face here still accepted her as my friend. But she just keeps getting worse and being this ugly drunk that is super easy and does things to get a reaction out of people. Hell, she's even taken to screaming arguments out of nowhere just to create some drama that night. So I don't really know how to handle that.
I need advice because I'm not sure if I'm being too sensitive here or if I really should just avoid her as a person (although it would mean MASSIVE complications in our group of mutual friends), and where would I start to deal with all of this?
