Like everyone else from a dysfunctional family, I relate to Â Modern FamilyÂ episodes almost every single week. Even if my grandfather’s not dating Sofia Vergara, I still identify with the chaos of the Dunphy Family. And as a middle child, I especially relate to their middle child Â Alex Dunphy.
Ariel Winter, the 14-year-old actress who playsÂ Alex DunphyÂ on “Modern Family,” has been removed from her home by a judge in the wake of serious allegations of physical and emotional abuse by her mother … court sources tell TMZ…Court sources tell us … on October 3rd, after a guardianship hearing, a judge determined the allegations that Ariel was being physically and emotionally abused by her motherÂ Crystal WorkmanÂ were serious enough that the judge placed Ariel in a temporary guardianship with her older sisterÂ Shanelle Workman. Our sources tell us … mama Crystal was ordered to stay 100 yards away from Ariel.
Right now this still sounds like a bunch of allegations from aÂ sourceÂ and we hope for Ariel’s sake that it’s not true. She might be a celebrity, but at the end of the day she’s still just a 14-year-old girl.Â Â So regardless if these rumors turn out to be true or not, we hope she’s in a safe place with people who love her and care for her.
