must admit,the fact that everything she said about him could have been said by looking at his wanted poster is a really suspicious thing..but I still need a clear motivation as to why they would need this act,before that,i can only say "let's see"
I completely agree. Why would BM need more bait to lure in the SHs? Although others have pointed out Pudding sitting near BM is a sign of her loyalty and ill intentions. It looks like she doesn't really enjoy BM eating her own crew; makes her look not so sinister:
She also seems well liked, or at least not feared, by the policeman. You would think a villain would have more fear from her citizens:
There is more to her but i don't get "bad guy" vibes from her. Besides, characters who usually offer Luffy food tend to be friendly.
