It's talked about in Abby in Wonderland that Elsie and her sister, Leah, don't exactly get along. Miriam says it was because Leah mentioned that she went on Weight Watchers at a dinner and Elise thought she said something being spiteful. She was embarrassed and then one thing led to another. She didn't invited Leah to the party, but after Abby tried to get her to come, Elsie invited her sister.
