Phyllis and Michael barely interact. I don't think friendships are high on the list for the current witers.
From what Michael has said he doesn't want Lauren to settle for a less than full marriage with him and he doesn't feel like she gets it. So he is trying to push her away so she can have a happier life without him. If it wasn't so contrived and OOC it would be really sad.

And any remorse she expresses is dismissed.
I just can't blame Lauren
Lauren was a vixen in her teens and twenties but she grew up so it would be weird to see her as a vixen now because she has lived too much. True love also helped her grow up and be a better person. Vixens are usually younger women although Jill was a vixen for quite awhile as was Phyllis.
I don't see any vixens on the show right now. Not true vixens like Lauren, Phyllis and Phyllis were.
