A bitter state or hatred induced by another having something more than oneself. Most acute between people where the difference is slight, eg, a neighbour with a minutely more expensive car. The most denied emotion - "I'm not envious, I don't hate her because she's got more money than me!".
People envy Paris Hilton because she has large wealth for which she has done nothing, but they comment on other aspects of her rather than this.
