Thinking about ending this drama filled friendship! What do you think? UPDATED!!!

So this is going to sound very petty, and it may be a little jumbled, I'm sorry in advance.  

So I have this friend that is very much a drama queen, its like whenever her husband is doing something that doesn't involve her, she causes problems for everyone.  Her husband is friends with my husband btw.  They play WoW (world of warcraft) with another buddy of theirs.  They haven't played in about a year and just picked it back up about a month ago, all except my friends husband.  He was able to get the trial but she keeps telling him he can't buy it (they are a 5 income family if you include her drill money and the money he brings in for jewelry making) and she still won't let him buy it because she says that means he's not spending time with her.  Yes I know, sounds petty, again I'm sorry.

Here's where the problem lies.  Tonight I was talking to my sister on the phone and this friend of mine kept calling back to back.  I finally sent her a text that said I was on the phone with my sister.  She sent me a message that said I needed to tell my husband to stop hurting her husbands feelings or she wasn't going to let him play WoW anymore (she was referring to her husband).  When I asked my husband if he said anything to him, he said he hadn't heard so he sent a text to my friends husband asking him if he was butt squishy cuz his wife had said he was butt squishy with him.  His buddy told him he was pissed at his wife because his wife wouldn't let him buy the game, that it had nothing to do with him.  So now my so called friend is mad at me for reading the text messages to my husband she was sending to me about my husband.  My husband and I are so confused and actually so is my friends husband.  We were planning to go to the movies with them this weekend to see the hobbit but I'm strongly reconsidering it.  What do you all think?  I really hate drama, but I can't seem to get this out of my head, I wasn't even trying to get in the middle of the drama, and for once I wasn't completely annoyed that my husband was being loud on vent with his buddies while playing a video game.  


Update:

So the friendship is over, maybe not forever, but definately for now.  My husband has been sick for the last few days, like on the couch and sleeping all day sick, we went to the doc yesterday cuz he had a fever of 104.  I texted my now no longer friend to tell her we probably won't be going to the movies this weekend, we still have some things to get for christmas and its not going to happen if we go to the movies.  She called me and flew off the handle saying it was bullpoopie (in more adult words) that we won't go to the movies with her and her husband because apparently my husband supposedly went to the movies with another buddy of his 2 days earlier.  (now let me tell you, this is definately not true, I think I would know if my husband left the house to go to the movies, especially since we are a 1 car family).  I told her I can't take it anymore, I can't watch my husband being told he's a horrible person for things he hasn't even done.  The poor guy spend the last 3 days sick and 2 days before that helping me take care of our sick daughter.  Her husband cancelled his wow account and told my husband its because I supposedly made his wife so mad she wont let him have it now.  These two really need to grow up and they really need to stop blaming their marrital problems on other people.  So I'm stepping back and ending the friendship.  Maybe someday they can figure how to behave as adults and they can figure out what's really wrong in their marriage and perhaps we can be friends again.

For sure I would cut out the drama & the friendship. That is high school drama crap & that will NOT change. She is controlling & childish. To call you back to back ever unless someone was hurt & she needed to get you, is unacceptable, to play the games & the whining, trying to blame your husband is ridiculous. My gosh!

 If you hate drama you might want to reconsider her as a friend!

Why is this even a question? She sounds like a complete control freak. Treating her husband more like her child than anything else. But that's really beside the point. My rule is very simple... if you bring ANY silly drama into my life, you are gone. I won't deal with it. It keeps my life very sane and calm. I can focus on my family and my close friends and not have to worry about all the extra stuff.

wow! It sounds like this so called "friend" is very immature and yes you are right shes too much ofa drama queen! my 6yr old daughter isnt as dramatic. I think that you should have a talk with her first and tell her how you feel because if you just cut her off, it seems like shes going to get butt shuishy with you and maybe stalk you till you tell her what going on. If she cant have a civilized conversation and starts getting loud or too drmatic for you cut her off point at her and say " My point exactly! goodbye forever lady". Then never see her again because you dont need that stress no one does!
