Motes low self-esteem was, allegedly, exacerbated by Roberts who would criticise Motes for her weight. It seems Motes constantly felt as though she was being compared to her sister. On the subject she said "I think growing up as Pretty Woman's little sister has definitely made me try to see the person inside and not the person outside. A lot of my life I felt judged for my weight."
