"The Two Out of Three Club is a sorority of women dedicated to keeping each other from living full lives…women in this sorority work overtime to sabotage each other’s success, yet they aren’t even aware that they are part of this destructive network…These friends present a sterling outward appearance, but underneath they are actually made of a lesser metal. And when things go well for you across the board, these insecure friends turn green with envy."
