Madison De La Garza played little Juanita Solis for four years on “Desperate Housewives,”starring on the ABC series from 2008 until its end in 2012 — and is the real life half-sister of singer Demi Lovato.
Now 13, the actress is opening up about growing up in the spotlight — and how having a famous sibling comes with its own series perks and drawbacks.
“I think when people say they wish Demi Lovato was their sister, they don’t realize how hard it is to be related to someone who’s constantly away on tour,” she tells Seventeen. “But she’s good at making time for me. We text constantly, and whenever she sees a funny tweet, she’ll screenshot it and send it to our family group message.
“When Demi is home, our relationship is just like any sisters’,” she continues. “We get fro-yo and watch the ID channel—we’re obsessed—and we talk about anything and everything. I know I can trust her with it all.”
