There are times on TV when you can see her starting to go red around the gills and don't forget one thing, her persona was built around her potty mouth and this show is the perfect environment for her to re invent herself and she wont let that slip. She knows she cant win it and she will probably go quite soon, so I think she will pick her fights, plan them in advance, she will be armed with plenty of dirty facts and tricks and finally she will know what the viewers are expecting and she will deliver.
Don't forget that she is a very well educated woman and airheads like Price are no match when people like Hopkins are allowed to plan in advance and I think she will be pretty sure Price will be going in with her.
