i have doubts about this, although when you consider that norma kicked becky out of her house for being gay and was presumably abusive towards her her entire childhood, it tracks.So Becky has been surprisingly lively and happy in the latest vlogs, despite having just recently lost her mother, something that would knock anyone out of commission for a good while even if you know the loss is on its grim way. My theory is that her new found lust for life is the direct result of Normas death.
The shame tyrant is gone! She can finally be her 14-year-old boy self now!
I almost feel sympathetic - what a gigantic bitch of a mother Norma must have been to the point that Becky is, to the limited extent that she can, absolutely glowing and thriving now.
the only reason i have doubts is because, despite being free from the judgement of her mom, she's now facing a new set of problems thanks to amberlynn being a validation-seeking bitch. the leaked voice recordings between amber and norma are bound to put a strain on amber's relationship with them now more than ever - they didn't like her before, but after those recordings, they probably will hate her if they hadn't already. that being said: becky will end up suffering a lot as a result of this, i think, and the biggest reason is that she won't have a choice but to take sides with amber, which will piss off her family and likely drive them away from her even more.
amber is also, according to people who knew them both, very similar to norma in terms of narcissistic behaviors and manipulation. it might also be the case that becky doesn't feel a sense of loss because amber is so similar to norma. she's basically just like her except she's a lesbian and takes care of everything for becky, from doctor's appointments to crayola art supplies to enabling her 90's obsession.
of course, that's all speculation. it's equally likely that becky really is thriving as a result of all of this happening and that she's now free to be who she really is: an adult morbidly obese woman obsessed with old 90's cartoons living with her somehow-even-more-morbidly-obese partner, living off of PF chang's and mcdonald's and earning her keep as the designated ass wiper.
