Not putting all your bullshit online isn't being manipulative. Only weirdos feel the need to put ever bit of their personal life out on the internet for strangers to read. She honestly puts TOO MUCH online, if you ask me. She doesn't owe anyone anything, including updates on her personal life.This is entirely just a theory, but something I've been thinking about.
People who are raised by manipulators tend to pick up those habits just by being around them. Since her mom was a master manipulator, whose to say that Venus didn't inherit those behaviors too?
Of course it's entirely possible that she makes a conscience effort NOT to be like her mom, but I think it would be difficult for anybody to not be somewhat influenced in that way.
Margo definitely has some sort of mental issues as well, and I know that disorders like BPD and depression can be passed down genetically.
Venus only shows us the bits and pieces of her personal life that she WANTS us to see. Who knows what else there is?
Also, like somebody said before, what happened to Mikan? They seemed to have a really tight friendship and Mikan was there when she was having personal problems. Yet, I haven't seen her around in V's comments on Instagram like she usually is, or photos of them hanging out. I hope they didn't have a falling out.
