You can have your cake and eat it too~ or not?

This was a layer of the themes presented in the HBO TV movie, “Grey Gardens”, which is based on the 1975 documentary, which became an instant cult classic and the subsequent Broadway musical. I missed the play, and loved this movie!
Drew Barrymore was sensational as “little Edie” and Jessica Lange as “Big Edie”. The two Edies have become famous for the way they lived at Grey Gardens — the squalor of their home was especially striking given that Big Edie was an aunt and Little Edie a first cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
That said, let’s contemplate the “have your cake and eat it too” question. I think it entirely depends on the dynamics of the situation, it’s certainly possible but not an absolute.
