Original story (9/7/17 at 11:43 a.m. ET):
However, Debra has now revealed that her daughter will still not be attending her upcoming wedding to fiancé Dr. David Merz.
Tensions between the mother and daughter arose over David earlier this year.
They came to a head in April, when David told Farrah she was disrespectful, and she responded by giving him the middle finger and calling him a terrible doctor.
“It’s kind of sad you’re marrying someone who f—king hates me,” Farrah said about David to her mother on Teen Mom OG.
“I invited you guys to Key West and he has his back towards me."
"That’s what you bring into your life. You’re not choosing to have a good family.”
This summer, Debra told In Touch that she was was briefly estranged from Farrah and her 8-year-old daughter Sophia, and that the two would not be attending her nuptials.
"Farrah has not changed her mind and I haven't been able to see Sophia or talk to her," she said.
"And I know it's quite hurtful because I know how badly Sophia wants to be in the wedding."
However, reports of a family reconciliation emerged earlier this week.
Farrah, Debra, and Sophia appeared together on Farrah's Instagram stories.
And Debra opened up about a recent reunion in Iowa.
“It was my mom’s 80th birthday so Farrah and Sophia came to Iowa to celebrate with my family,” she said.
“It was a great surprise.”
But, Debra has now revealed to Radar that Farrah and Sophia will still not be attending the upcoming wedding, which is set to take place on November 5, 2017 at the Suzanne and Walter Scott Aquarium at the Omaha Zoo.
Though the mother and daughter are working on their relationship, the FroCo owner still does not approve of Debra's union.

“Right now they’re not participating in the wedding,” Debra said. “They’re not coming to the wedding.”
“Family is family and blood is blood,” she continued. “I don’t intend on getting married again.
"If she married someone I didn’t like, I would be there front and center.”
In attendance at the ceremony, however, will be Teen Mom star Amber Portwood, who is known to have a complicated history with Farrah.
Rumors are even circling that Debra asked Amber to be her maid of honor.
Though that exact position has not been confirmed, Farrah's rep told Hollywood Life that Amber would be in the wedding.
"Debra asked Amber to be her maid of honor at her wedding to spite Farrah who said that she didn’t want to come,” a source told the site.
“Debra only asked Amber to come because Teen Mom and MTV will be filming Amber," the source continued.
"This is Debra’s free meal ticket to a paid wedding that neither she, nor her man can afford."
"Their budget is so small that they plan to have the wedding at Debra’s house in Nebraska," the person claimed.
"Debra is very sneaky and Amber is mischievous enough to be in the wedding of her frenemy’s mother.”
"I still love her to death," she said. “She knows that … I know that for me, I’m ready to let everything go."
"With her, it’s on her terms. I’m not really putting any effort into it or thinking about it.”
