“When I was in high school and she was an adult, she would just let me know that I was definitely overweight. She would make it quite clear to me and in a not-so-nice a manner. It just makes me feel incredibly hurt and very sad."

Later, when Motes moved to L.A. to pursue acting, Roberts tried to discourage her, "mostly because I was overweight. My weight has fluctuated my entire life. So I just got a lot of criticism from Julia, which was very discouraging for me." Although Roberts got Motes a job as a P.A. on Glee, they continued to have their problems:

Their relationship grew even more testy in April 2010 when, Motes said, Roberts made a snide comment about her weight.

“Fuck you,” Motes shot back, she said.

"I think we’re both trying to change our opinions of each other,” Motes said. “It’s a work in progress. It’s not going to be fixed overnight, nor do I think it’s going to be fixed at this point by me just getting skinny."

Sisterfights are complicated. Related: I once heard from someone who knows someone who knows (LOL) that Meryl Streep does not like Julia Roberts, so that is a pretty good indication of things. [NYDN]
