It was (I assume) intentionally negative.  Because she's toned down a little
it seems that it was just to make sure she didn't lose James, but I think
"slutty" is a fairly accurate description for her behavior in the jail.

Would you have been as offended if we went and called Ben Horne a dick?
(I apologize for being a little explicit.)
