Jennifer Aniston’s family secrets may soon be exposed

A caregiver of Nancy Dow, Jen’s late mother, has reportedly revealed plans to release a tell-all book about the pair’s tumultuous relationship.

Earlier this year, actress Jennifer Aniston lost her mother, Nancy Dow, after a battle with a long-term illness.
The two had famously been estranged for years, but in the former model’s final months, they had begun to take steps towards putting their bitter past behind them.
Coming to terms with the passing of one’s mother is difficult enough, but now Jen is sure to feel betrayed as one of Nancy’s caregivers allegedly plans to release an exposé on the pair’s often troubled past, according to In Touch.
The tell-all book is set to expose the “terrible” relationship the Friends star shared with her mother, the publication claims.
"The caregiver was present for the few phone calls and even fewer meetings between Jen and Nancy," the insider alleges. "She wants to expose the real Jennifer Aniston."
“Nancy was so sick and lonely,” the source adds.
Nancy passed away at the age on 79. She reportedly suffered several strokes over the years and was unable to walk or talk.
The 47-year-old apparently ended her relationship with her mother in 1996, after she gave a telling interview about her daughter on the TV show Hard Copy.
Then in 1999, at the height of Jen's fame, Nancy destroyed what remained of their relationship when she published an explosive tell-all memoir called From Mother And Daughter to Friends.
Last year, the beloved actress told The Hollywood Reporter that she had a complex relationship with her mum, who was also an actress.
"She was critical. She was very critical of me. Because she was a model, she was gorgeous, stunning. I wasn't. I never was," Jen shared.
"I honestly still don't think of myself in that sort of light, which is fine. She was also very unforgiving. She would hold grudges that I just found so petty."
Nancy wasn't invited to her daughter's wedding to Justin Theroux last year.
After Nancy’s death in May, the Cake star made headlines when she allegedly refused to keep her mother’s ashes on the day of her memorial service.
"The world sees Jen as adorable Rachel from Friends, but the real story is more like reversed Mommie Dearest," the insider tells In Touch.

While the source claims that Jennifer will likely try to fight the book ever making its way into stores, one thing’s for sure - she will certainly not lack support from her hubby, Justin Theroux.
In a recent interview with The Sunday Times in promotion of his latest film The Girl on the Train, Justin revealed that he doesn’t mind at all when people refer to him as "Mr. Jennifer Aniston."
In fact, he rather likes it.
Just call me Mr. Jennifer Aniston!
"It doesn't really get under my skin. It's just one of those things that's a shorthand for describing who I am," the 45-year-old quipped.
He continued, "[Jennifer] is a proper badass. She has lived through a lot of bulls--t. Many people would have crumbled under some of the stresses that have been put on her."
“I'm very proud of her for that, for the way she handles herself. So, in a weird way, it's an honor to stand behind her. Truly, in that sense, she's amazing."
