    A sad day indeed for the Roberts family.

    Nancy Motes, the 37-year-old half-sister of Julia Roberts and Eric Roberts, has died of an apparent drug overdose...

    How sad. The article you posted helps me understand how hard she had to struggle.

    Fly Free, Nancy.

    This is very tragic indeed. Nancy's friends are very upset that someone has deleted her twitter account. I think they feel her voice has been silenced and her old chatter to them about life, love, weddings and TV has been stolen.

    Meanwhile, the Mail has easily retrieved them all and published the very few that were angry and aimed at family anyway, that were probably the reason for deleting the account in the first place.

    Nancy did seem very, very happy, bubbly and excited at times, then very, very low. I couldn't help wondering if a gastric bypass could have an adverse effect on someone, if they tended towards depression anyway? Don't people have to pay really careful attention to their diet after that op, to make sure they don't become malnourished? I wondered if malnutrition can lead to depression, or worsen existing depression.

    Just so sad anyway. I wish she could have stayed a little longer, as things could have seemed so much better the next day, or the next week. They often do.

    Unhappy

    It saddens me that Julia Roberts "teased" Nancy about her weight. I've admired Roberts an actress and always thought that she was a lovely person inside and out. I guess looks and success can be deceiving. RIP, Nancy.

    According to reports, Julia is worth 90 million.
    Never really cared for her. Her face is twisted. I don't care for her demeanor either. Moo.

    I took it as the sister blaming Julia for all her problems, but didn't see it as fair at all. It seems she spent a lot of time trying to tear down Julia, perhaps out of jealousy IMO.
    You don't get a medal for switching alliances just before the result, as it becomes apparent the other team is set to win.

    And what about the other side of the coin?

    Is this the same twitter account that was full of hate filled tweets about Julia? If so they should be glad it's down.

    Some of it is discussed here: http://www.kfiam640.com/media/podcas...-211-24322249/

    She tweeted on Jan. 19, "So my 'sister' said with all her friends & fans she doesn't need anymore love. Just so you all know, 'America's Sweetheart' is a (expletive)."

    On Jan. 22, she tweeted "(M)y own family has abandoned me."

    To me this sounds like the words of an addict, externalising blame for their own problems.

    I agree. I've never liked Julia Roberts as an actress nor respected how she got her current husband, but I don't think she should be blamed for what happened to her sister. Her sister is responsible for her own actions and Julia did not owe her anything. Even the fat comments, do we really know exactly how Julia said it?

    These 1/2 sibs have a long and basically unhappy history. No one knows but the insiders themselves but very few people are how they seem to others and that includes Julia and her half sister. I'd be loath to support either's position.
