Julia Roberts Is Fighting With Her Sister Again

It seems like the only time Julia Roberts ever makes the tabloids anymore is when she is fighting with her half-sister Nancy Motes. They fought when the half-sister tried to take some photos of Julia's twins to sell to a tabloid, or at least that is what Julia thought her sister was going to do. They always fight about money and the amount that Julia gives her sister and now they are fighting about the sister's wedding. Julia is pretty sure that if she goes that she will end up paying for the wedding and according to The Enquirer, it is one of the reasons she does not want to be bridesmaid. Apparently Julia thinks her future brother-in-law is also after money, considering his highest paying gig was working at Panda Express or as I like to call it, the 7-11 of Chinese food. People love it though. I mean, it is one thing to be in food courts in malls everywhere, but there are stand-a-lone Panda Express restaurants now.

Seriously, this would be a downside of being rich and famous. Or even rich and anonymous. You'd be afraid that everyone wants money from you. And hello? I'm sure they do. Wouldn't you? If your sister was worth hundreds of millions of dollars, wouldn't you want some of that for yourself? It's not pretty, but it's human nature.

Damn straight, their orange chicken is awesome (but not their orange chicken sauce you can buy at the store.)

Empress of Socks said...

How would attending a wedding mean you will "end up paying for it"? I would think all the caterers, planners, etc would need deposits before the wedding and I'm fairly sure they don't take it on the bride's word that someone else is going to foot the bill, so how does that work? She'll be a hostage at the venue until she pulls out her AmEx?

Lola said...

Yeah, I don't get the love for Panda Express.

whodathunkit said...

I'm of the opinion that if you make millions and millions of dollars, it's your fucking job to take care of your family. Who gives a shit if she has to pluck down $20k or so for her sister's god damn wedding! She would notice that missing from her account the way we would notice if someone took a nickel out our change purse. These celebrities kill me. Just pay and shut up lest you look like a greedy asshole.

Silly Girl said...

I love how you took a conversation about Julia Roberts and ended up with Panda Express. That's sort of how I feel about her.

Jolene Jolene said...

Whodathunkit--Are you kidding me? Just pay and shut up? I can't even wrap my mind around that train of thought. If I was filthy rich and my family needed money for their mortgage or bills or groceries for whatever reason, of course I would help them. But I also come from a family of people who have these things called JOBS. I would give them lavish gifts and probably buy my parents the lake house they always wanted or the fancy car, but the fact that anyone would EXPECT their rich sibling to JUST PAY FOR THINGS AND SHUT UP is disgusting. What is wrong with humans??

Ms Cool said...

LOL @ Silly Girl.

I have to respectfully disagree with whodathunkit - as much as I hate Julia Roberts, I don't think she has to pay for anyone else in the world outside of her children. She owes her money to no one.

However, it would be nice if she was more generous with her family but I don't know enough about her family to comment about whether or not they are money grubbers.

And I must emphasize that I loathe Julia Roberts.

@whodathunkit

"Just pay and shut up"?

Uh, no.


In practically every family, there are users, abusers, cheaters, liars, betrayers, etc.

My loved ones would see plenty, but I STAY their loved one and not turn into an ATM. Nor would I fund any relatives addictions.

And if my Aunts/Uncles or Cousins had that kind of money, I wouldn't expect a dime.

Christopher Cruz said...

Agreed. My family isn't rich, but we all put in and help each other out financially when it's needed. That's just what you do for family.

libby said...

If you win the lotto, or get rich quick and you want to gift money to relatives---Set up an annuity, a trust that gives them an income, and tell them that is ALL they're getting. And stick to it.

Money can be made to last a very long time, if folks really believe it's finite.

Julia was probably young and dumb at first, and just started gifting. maybe cars or houses. But you can't do that, it just lets them know they can be freeloaders, and you will keep bailing them out.



I can't stand Julia, but she probably IS stuck with a whole family of people JUST AS BAD AS HERSELF. So that's a kind of instant karma, huh?

jimmyPx said...

It would be one thing if her sister was having a normal wedding that cost $5-10k and she asked her sister if she could pay for it. She might then.

BUT from what I have heard of her sister, it sounds like she is throwing this huge, expensive, and lavish affair like SHE is a movie star and then is going to stick her sister with the check.

Umm no---I don't blame Julia a bit in that situation. Also anyone that would risk her niece and nephews security for a few bucks is slime--hey honey--get a JOB !!

Me said...

i don't think julia is responsible for her sisters wedding tab. if her sister needed an operation that was out of reach financially, or was losing her home, that's different. to me that would be a moral obligation. her sister is a grown woman, she makes her own choices and has her own life. it would be lovely if julia WANTED to pay, but its not her obligation

NomNom83 said...

I have my suspicions about Julia's real personality, but she is not obligated to subsidize or sponsor her sister's wedding. Especially if she already gives her money and has set those boundaries (as Enty implies). I understand she set Nancy up with a job on "Glee", so it's not like she's never done anything for her. And maybe Julia's crazy/paranoid, but if you "catch" a family member taking pics of your newborns when the press is clamoring for a first glimpse? C'mon, Nancy knows what's up. She knows how that looks -- especially if they've fought about money before -- so she should have just asked first.

As for not liking the Groom? See, celebrities ARE just like us!

Maria said...

Not every person has family deserving of such largesse - and entitlement disease is rampant. Her money and she can do what she wants with it. She has no obligation to support anyone other than her children.

If I were in her place with my sister, I would probably not be giving her one red cent unless she earned it. Not everyone has decent family.

__-__=__ said...

Can't blame her. She's probably offered to help her sister get jobs. She should keep her kids away from that too.

Seachica said...

$20k? That's nothing. The average cost of a wedding is $32k these days. I'm sure Julia Roberts' sister would want one on the higher end of that mark.

Eh, I'm not privy to their family dynamic, so I don't know whether Julia is ignoring her family or her family is imposing on her generosity. I'm just glad that I am not Julia, having to worry constantly about people taking my money.

And Panda Express? Ewww, only in an airport emergency.

Anna Nonymous said...

of course she'd be pissed and sick of it. I would be too. How about the sister pays for a wedding she can afford and julia attends, without paying a dime, other than a decent wedding gift. this is such a crock of shit. since when was it written anywhere that you owe someone gifts? she owes her sister since she's succesful? her sister should be able to sell out pictures of julias children? possibly endangering their safety and making it easier for a kidnapper to identify them? I'd cut the sister off and only talk to her during counseling. the sister sounds like a vicious self centered manipulative back stabbing shallow self absorbed money grubbing parasite to me.

marie-ski said...

Tell me why I thought that said 'fisting' ?

Count Jerkula said...

1/2 sister ass to ass would be hot, despite Julia Roberts being involved.

Meli said...

Completely disagree! In my experience, the first family members to ask for help are the least deserving. Anecdotal evidence...cousin got married, didn't ask for a dime, my mom threw her a really nice bridal shower/bachelorette party, and she was so appreciative that for my college graduation/sister's middle school promotion a year later she surprised us with two really nice cakes. A few weeks ago, BF's cousin's Swet 16, she asked for and got $2K for a shitty band, and we didn't even get a thank you.

Silkprint said...

Does Julia get along with anyone ?

rhinovodka said...

I wouldn't pay for my sister's wedding either, so I can't hate on Julia, if this is even true.

Maria said...

Side note - my husband and I call Panda Express "Moose knuckles." During a lunch meeting my husband bit into something hard that was clearly not meat - the popular guess was a moose knuckle.

But I digress...

Hubby and I don't have much, but our siblings are so crappy with money, we stipulated in our will that if anything happens to us or our kid(s), everything we have will be placed in an educational trust for our niece and nephews. If we won the lottery, we'd set up trusts for the kids, help out our parents, give a nice one time gift to the siblings and that's it.

auntliddy said...

Gay, good to know, or gtk as my daughter says. I was thinking of buying it, now i wont. But i also feel like having it for dinner even tho I planned ziti with meat sauce and fresh italian bread. Its a pickle i tell ya!!

auntliddy said...

I guess if she rsvps yes, the bills will follow.

auntliddy said...

Does not compute. Does not compute. Does not compute.

auntliddy said...

Agree with meli. Your money, do with it as u please, dont owe anyone anything. I know of a situation where young couple constantly bitching and moaning and more oir less demanding money from well off parents. I think thats disgraceful!!

auntliddy said...

Im generous to a fault, but it wld totally get my back up if it was expected. That wld close up the checkbook asap.

Sherry said...

If you don't have $20K for a wedding then don't have a wedding that costs $20K. I had a fine wedding and it cost $5K. Since I was 43 I think it would be pretty silly to ask a parent to pay for my wedding, much less a sibling, regardless of how wealthy they were.

She's 37. I can find no hint of her actually having done anything professionally. She doesn't show up in Linked in OR IMDB or any Google search not attached to the feuds she's had with Julia. What exactly does this woman do?

Her sense of entitlement is appalling.

Cee Kay said...

If I had hundreds of millions, my family would be well taken care of. Nobody needs that much money.

nudibelle said...

julia tight with the pockets???
julia a tightwad lmfao

feraltart said...

I would never expect anyone, regardless of their wealth, to fund me. What happened to making your own way in life & having a little bit of self-respect.

lazyday603 said...

I thought deadbeat celebrity relatives did reality TV shows instead of sponging off their famous family members. MTV is always looking for new redneck freak shows. The Roberts are from Georgia. Perfect solution.

pickwickianmom said...

I hate to sound like a stitched pillow here, but happiness comes from being able to give. From giving. From wanting to give. Jeesh, I stop to help strangers who seem malnourished. I would certainly help my sister. Even long term if I had millions. And I would do an Oprah and give a lot to charity. I mean, what else is there? More Birkin bags or cars? Isn't that empty after awhile??


Henriette said...

With the divorce rate being so high, I wouldn't pay for a 20 grand wedding either. Maybe a funeral or bat/bar mitzvah, but a wedding? Nah.

di butler said...

Well, she doesn't owe them a damn thing, so that's her choice if she wants to help them. Freeloaders dont get to be that way, unless you let them. That said, I've told the story of working w/her here before. She's a huuuuge a$$hole, & I only dealt w her once, briefly. Friends in the biz who've had more contact hate her like the heat from 1,000 suns.

PJJ said...

Paying for your sister's lavish wedding is not helping anyone but her greed. Like someone above said, stopping a family member's house from foreclosing or offering to find them work is one thing, being expected to support a healthy able-bodied adult is something completely different and disgusting. Julia didn't just wake up with her wealth under her pillow, she worked for it

rajahcat said...

she is insufferable
but she does not owe her sister a wedding or really anything
