I would ask her to make one at the rehearsal dinner, especially if she’s hosting it.  That way she’ll be the only speech (giving her the spotlight) but will be limited to close family / bridal party, who I’m sure are used to her theatrics.

shanbrice said exactly what I would recommend.  FMIL at the rehearsal dinner then your step-father, BM and MOH at the reception.

I agree with you completely that is a lot of speeches! At our wedding my Dad and DH’s Dad both made speeches. My Mom spoke at the rehearsal dinner (which she hosted).

Personally, I would just tell her that parents typically give speeches at rehearsal dinners. After all, she won’t know what the norm is these days.

I agree with everyone else. We are only having my dad, best man, and MOH give speeches at the wedding. If anyone else wants to give a toast or say something, they have to do it at the rehearsal dinner.

I agree with the rehearsal dinner as well.
