Dow’s 1999 book, From Mother And Daughter To Friends: A Memoir, about their rocky relationship, didn’t make things any better. Aniston and her mother began speaking again in 2005. “Yeah, it’s been really nice,” Aniston said of the reconciliation after nine years of estrangement. “It’s been really nice. It’s crazy what, you know, your life kind of being turned upside down will lead you to. … For us it’s … it was the time, and it was going to happen when it was supposed to happen. So this is good. It’s baby steps.”

Things between them really became heated in 2009 when the elder Spelling penned an open letter to her daughter on titled, “Middle-Aged Reality Show Stars (Like My Daughter).” In the letter, Candy criticized her daughter for having her life played out on camera and turning her kids into “reality show props.” The two have since reconciled.

    Well, the conflict between two generations will always exist and the celebrities are not the exception. Besides, where the big money is interfered the problem would arise even within the families. The feeling of greediness and jealousy is familiar to all of us and unfortunately sometimes the closest people take advantage of us and then it is so devastating that the best thing you can do is to cut off any ties and go silent. I still cannot understand why would parents steal from their kids or take any advantage as in many cases of celebs families from this article.
