>Why would anyone begrudge her happiness?< I think some people believe happiness to be a zero-sum game. If someone else is happy, and they are not, in their mind the happy person must be stealing their happiness. If that person was just a little less happy, then that happiness would be released, meaning that they may be able to be a little happier.
Either that, or it's the old adage, "misery loves company". If they are miserable, then other people should be too.
She is what she is, a beautiful woman. When you are beautiful enough, you don't have to do or ask for anything, it is done or given without a word. She doesn't have to chase rich men for their money, they chase her and throw it at her.
I'm surprised to hear that she is living in LA, I have seen her in Tokyo often enough. She's a nice person, and is kind to my kids. There are many who are less pretty and more full of themselves than she is.
