I think it all comes down to the show went out of their way to make her character relevant somehow and to many times it was at the expense of Clark. The show also went out of it's way trying to satisfy shipper viewers as much as possible and in the case of Chloe it was like well we will make Clark so reliant on her that they can take pride in that.
As for the mind rape, I never got what the point of that was. She loses Brainiac and her memories only to get re-infected by Brainiac the next episode and gets her memories back 2 episodes later. I always felt like the only reason they did that was to give Chloe fans who hate Chimmy, an excuse that Chloe wasn't herself when she married Jimmy because they easily could have did that episode without a mindrape and it would make no difference.
