How was Wealhtheow a bad peace weaver?

I can't find anything to support Wealhtheow being a bad peace weaver. But I have a question asking about her being not-so-successful. Any ideas, or point me to the right spot in the poem?

Wealhtheow sets a poor example of a peace-weaver when she publicly reprimands her husband and abandons her ceremonial tasks. In doing so, she unsettles (unweaves) the relationship Hrothgar is trying to build with Beowulf.
