According to Page Six, after Motes accused Roberts in the UK paper The Sun of fat-shaming her, the actress started to wonder if her sibling was the one selling her secrets to the press.

Motes, 37, said she was not sure if Julia would be at her wedding planned for May.

“Julia didn’t get on with Nancy’s fiancé either, and had made it clear she wasn’t planning on going to the wedding,” one source said.

I have the sinking feelings that the news about this family will not get better.

However dysfunctional their relationship was, Nancy Motes' addiction and death are not Julia's fault. Suicide is a terrible thing and I am sure that despite any animosity between them over the years, Julia is grieving right now.

Julia has always been reputed to be a total bitch, but there's been a tragic death in her family. I feel like we should not be trying to lay blame at her door. I mean, at least give it a week.
