I think there's a limited amount *you* can do here - it's very easy to come across as the controlling girlfriend.  For most of it, it's up to your boyfriend to both repel this woman, and to explain to his friends what is going on.

One thing you can do that might help is if you can figure out some way of hosting his friends - have a get-together or movie night at your place, but don't invite problem girl. That might make it clear that it's not his friends that are the problem, and that you want to socialize with them, but that's it's the one, particular woman.

And I agree that she wants her toy back.

We have decided to take your advice and we are hosting a BBQ  next weekend and we are inviting several of his friends as well as several of mine.  We sent out an Evite this weekend as so far we are getting back several positive responses

Good luck! I'm also in the "make/let BF handle it"-camp, btw.  ;)

Good luck! She sounds like a nightmare. She sounds a bit like your other 'friend' Moochzilla-ie a user who constantly uses her looks to sponge off other people. I cannot stand people like that, whether they are men or women (and I have known more that one man like that, it isn't just women by any means)

Veggie tray
Chips with salsa and guacamole
Buffalo chicken meatballs
 Lil smokies

Main dishes

Grilled sausage
Spicy rice
Potato salad
Baked beans
Mixed green salad
Cole slaw

Dessert
Banana split cupcakes
Sticky cookies
Fruit salad

Drinks
Beer, soda, juices, wine ,  water, rum, vodka  , party punch 

 Does the menu look ok  or do you think I need to add to it,  no one thatís coming is a vegetarian or have an allergies that they have mentioned

Looks like a pretty good mix of meat, fruit, veggies, and carbs to me.

As a vegetarian, your menu looks completely fine even if you had some vegetarian guests, there are plenty of veggie options on there. :)

Update

 I thought I would let everyone know that the party was a huge success  I think aboiut 30 of BF friends showed up.  Although we did one almost disaster,  A certain person posted on Facebook about the fact that we were having a party and how I was trying to steal all of her friends, and how dare we not invite her but it didnít matter because she was coming anyway. One of the people invited to the party emailed  us her rant, so BF and I decided  move the party to my house and to email everyone that accepted to let them know of the new location.

 It actual worked out better since  my house is closer to most of his friendís houses than his is and I have a large backyard with a deck, plus I was doing the majority of the  cooking..,  The other funny thing was the new location also helped to clear up some rumors about me that I was unaware of , so that was also a good thing. 

I know that this was evil of me but one of the funniest things that happened was a certain person posted on their wall again the day of the party making jokes about the fact that no one must have come to our party because she drove by and no one was there and how stupid I was to think that I could steal her friends and hw that what we got for not inviting her.  I just laughed to myself >:D.

So glad things worked out, shay!

Whoa! That is kind of crazy creepy! How kind of her to display her crazy for everyone to see.

I'm glad your party was such a success!

I was really glad about the first one because it let us know in advance what she was planning to do , though it was a scramble to make sure that everyone knew the new location

Hooray for the fun party! Can I ask what rumors the new location cleared up? My mind is going crazy with the location specific possibilities!
