These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Unintentionally Sympathetic: The treatment from Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon, and Triple H in regards to her position as the Manager Supervisor made her like this even more so considering the fact that she's been advised by each of the three Mcmahon family to listen to each of them, which made her distraught and confused. Fast forward to her job evaluation. After the mean-spirited jokes, and the voting of the WWE Universe to say she's done a poor job, Stephanie fires Vickie on the spot, putting her to tears. Backstage when Vickie was leaving, Ryback comforted her and gave her a hug, saying that she deserves better than this.
It got to the point that the company themselves acknowledged this enough to let Vickie end her career on a Heel-Face Turn in 2014, pulling a cathartic The Dog Bites Back on Stephanie after she sadistically fires her again.
Hollywood Pudgy: During the start of her regular run on TV (not long after Eddie'sdeath) she indeed gained quite a bit of weight. She has since slimmed down, but there were still an unfortunately high volume of on-screen jokes about her weight (usually from the similarly overweight Jerry Lawler).
Love to Hate: She draws perhaps more heat than any other wrestler, diva, or backstage personality in WWE except for maybe Michael Cole on his 'better' days. Here's how bad it's gotten: she's associated with Dolph Ziggler, a career heel who is starting to establish a very strong fan following. Thus, 9/10 times when Vickie appears, Dolph (whom a lot of the fans like and cheer now) follows soon after. Despite that association and not being nearly as heelish as she was in her GM storylines, she still gets epic boos.
