While she might be a "strong business" woman she isn't a strong character, moaning at someone isn't a strong characteristic.
She's the one person who cares about Tony despite how terrible a person he is. She's the one person who sees him as more than an adolescent power fantasy. Now if that's all you want from Iron Man, then I suppose the only person who cares about him would seem like she's just 'moaning.' It's too bad you're missing that part of the Iron Man story though, it's one of the best relationships action movies have ever had.
