And this year it's set to be an extra special Thanksgiving meal for the Real Housewives star as it will be the first since she reconciled with her eldest daughter, Sami, 18. Last year, the pair had a major falling out with Sami leaving the family home and going to live with her father, Charlie Sheen.

The separation had a major effect on the actress, and back in February she shared on SiriusXM's Jeff Lewis Live that the pair's relationship was still "strained", but expressed hopes they would reconcile in the future.

She also defended her parenting style, explaining: " I think it's very difficult raising teenagers now and especially in Los Angeles when there's access to everything. We didn't grow up with Postmates and Uber where you have everything that you want."

"There are certain rules and I enforce them. And [at Charlie's], there's different rules at that house and that's okay."
