Rosalie doesn't think she has to be nice. Period. To anyone. She was equally awful to Edward, and imagine what he must have been going through. She has proven time and time again that she is selfish and mean.
Rosalie is selfish and mean, I won't argue that point.
But putting it in Rosalie's perspective, I can see why she was mean. I think it's a pity that really the only time we saw her was when things weren't so great and she felt she had to be mean.
With Bella at first, it does show Rose's vanity, but it was also a tad bit deeper than that. If you've read MS, then you know what I'm talking about.
And she was mean to Edward, but in a protective way to the baby. She wasn't going at him like she was Jacob, it was more like, "Back off, Bella wants this baby" sorta thing. She definitely could have been nicer, but it was just the way that Rosalie saw how she had to approach the situation.
I can see that. I haven't read MS, but I think that Rose was in a way trying to scare Bella and the wolves away. Maybe it was because she simply thought she was better then them. But I think that Rose is in a way afraid of change. Like she wanted everything to stay the same in her human life with her fiance, and being human itself. Then she found Emmett, and the Cullens, and didn't want harm to come to them, after she finally found Emmett. But should Rose have been nicer? Yes. But she was trying, like in Eclipse, she told Bella her story, something she hasnt told in 100s of years.
Then, there is the issue if Rosalie just wanted the baby and didn't care about Bella. That's pretty up in the air. What do you guys think?
