She supported herself due to Craig paying her bills. Her son was hurt and no one would speak to her. The nature of her relationship with Craig was just a friendship. Craig required her to be his dinner companion for payment for staying with him. She didn’t cook the dinners, she just ate them. That sure must have been a dream job. She was helping Craig out because he was trying to help her and save the company at the same time. Craig did come and see her after she moved out. She wasn’t a friend with Barbara but that didn’t stop Carly from seeing Craig after that. She met with Craig once in his car and they were parked in the hospital parking lot where Barbara is staying.
