This is probably the most dramatic of all the sibling situations: "The Bachelorette" contestant Jordan Rodgers is the baby brother of Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers — and the two of them are no longer on speaking terms! The sad truth came out as Jordan wooed JoJo Fletcher, who's now his fiancée, on Season 12 of the hit ABC show. Though the feud pre-dates Jordan's reality TV run, it's been reported that more tension arose because Aaron did not approve of his brother being on the show! Looks like not ALL drama is staged for TV.
Sofia Vergara is arguably one of the most famous faces on network television today — she's also the top-earning female TV star at the moment — but she's not the only one in her family who's found fame on the boob tube.

Full disclosure: Sandra is technically Sofia's cousin but was adopted by Sofia's parents when she was a baby. Talk about a modern family!
