Advice?

I have a friend who is in a relationship with a married man. His wife not only knows, but approves and actually hooked them up. She also has relationships with other people; she and her husband are staying together for their daughter. I don't have any issues with it, and even if I did it wouldn't matter.

However, my friend's mother is another story. She's been treating her like shit because she doesn't approve of what her daughter's doing, and has admitted this is why she's been a complete uber-controlling bitch lately. She's called her worthless, grounded her for not doing a chore mentioned offhand when she spent the entire day at home doing chores, forbidden her to drive anywhere, etc. Why my friend puts up with it is beyond me, since she can pack up and leave any time she wants.

Her brother and roommate/'friend' are being complete fuckfaces about it as well.

My quesiton: How much should I get involved, if at all? I've already offered her a place to stay to get away from her mother, and she's this || close to accepting it. Should I just leave it at that? I want to scream at the lot of them that it's none of their fucking business to begin with, but I have a feeling that could lead nowhere good.

Thoughts? Don't comment if you're just going to lecture, please and thank you.

Edit: Thank you all for your advice. I've decided to not do anything beyond offering an ear and a place to crash.

Also thank you for showing me how judgemental people can be. Such lessons are valuable. And no, I'm not being sarcastic.
