Since it sounds like she’s a close, long-time friend who (aside from the known drama) you’d want at the dinner – I’d invite her.

Part of your friendship with her is the drama – so, the better you can get at managing the drama, the better off you’ll be in the long-run. 

It sounds like she’s super insecure and needy (I have a friend like reminds me of her)!  Do you guys have a mutual friend you could direct her to with answers?  The other thing you can do is not feed into her crazy (ie: short, direct responses to questions – or, be honest, can’t respond right now, in the middle of tons of details, I hope you understand – see you at the dinner!).

While you don’t have to invite her, I think it would keep drama to a minimum if you did invite her.

I think you have to decide if you want to keep her as a friend.  If you do, you should invite her to keep the drama low.  But if you are sick of her antics and ready to cut her out of your life, than this would be the way to start!  I can’t stand that nonsense.  But if you do want to stay friends, I think you’d better invite her.

Invite her, and then don’t answer your phone the day of.  You’re going to be busy, after all…
