If Benedict does stand firm this time and end this mess, what can he (and we) expect? Well this article linked above talks about that. Here’s an excerpt:
“What happens if the narcissist loses control?
If he loses control of others he will fail to find Narcissistic Supply sources, just like a drug addict that can’t find any drugs. This precipitates a narcissistic crisis. The narcissist becomes more desperate and more compulsive in looking for his drug. The more he fails, the more he is hurt and expresses his emotional turmoil by acting out (not uncommonly with ‘narcissistic rage’).”
We may be seeing that right now. Or signs of it. If Benedict holds firm and doesn’t give in to her? She’ll be totally at a loss. She might even turn her anger and rage on herself, if she can’t find a new victim. She’ll turn on her friends and family, for failing her. But she also knows self preservation, so she will only say things publicly that can’t be turned back on her. So most of her accusations, etc will be silly and vapid. I’m pretty sure that by now Disney has let her know at least some of what they have on her. So unless she wants to go to jail, she won’t spill the real dirt. And even if she did? Disney would just spin it so that SHE comes out looking like the vain, abusive narc she is. At this point, Benedict has ALL the power. He just needs to use it. He really shouldn’t fear her anymore. She’s not a lioness, she’s a house cat that has been declawed.
