Okay, so Oprah, reportedly paid her mother's ridiculous clothing bill. What's the big deal? Some folks feel like Oprah should have automatically shelled out close to one-hundred and fifty thousand dollars just because she has it in her billionaire bank account. Others believe that it was her mother's responsibility to settle her own debt. The truth probably lies somewhere in between and honestly the deal should be private between the parties involved. The situation does highlight the difficult relationship between mothers and their daughters, a stormy course for most of us at one point during our upbringing. Daughter's act out and mother's act out in estrogen-fueled ways. Thankfully, most daughters regain their senses during the late teenage years. Most mothers become cool again around the same time. Coincidence? Probably not.
