Cut this line from YMMV:

Veda does not meet three of the qualifications: she does not cross the Moral Event Horizon until the very end of the story, she is not treated as loathsome or feared by any character (reactions range from sad bewilderment to amusement to annoyance or pity), and she does have a Freudian Excuse. Mildred's spoiling of her and favoring of her did contribute a lot to her character, and the movie makes this clear.
