Ugh, you guys, this is so gross. There’s been a lot of talk lately about Modern Family star Ariel Winter‘s problems at home. There are allegations that she’s been both physically and emotionally abused, and in the wake of those accusations, she’s been removed from the custody of her mother, Chrystal Workman. Until things can be sorted out, Ariel, who plays Alex Dunphy on the hit show, has been staying with her older sister, Shanelle Gray, and has a restraining order on her mom that says she can’t get within 100 yards of Ariel.
So let’s talk about Shanelle Gray for a second. Interestingly enough, she was also removed from Chrystal’s home when she was Ariel’s age, after similar allegations of abuse. She was placed in foster care and never returned to her mother’s home. And now, information is being released that suggests that Chrystal has been attempting to leak nude photos of Shanelle to the press via Jonathan Hay, a Hollywood publicist. The pictures are allegedly from eight or nine years ago, and according to him, Chrystal has been hounding him all week to release them and “sell out her daughter”.
Okay, who does this Chrystal lady think she is, Kris Jenner? Sure, she’s less famous, but this reminds me exactly of the rumors that Kris was the one who leaked Kim Kardashian‘s sex tape. What is with these crazy ladies trying to get their daughters famous via sex? For every awesome mom like Jennifer Garner or Angelina Jolie, it seems like there’s a Dina Lohan or Chrystal Workman lurking around the corner, trying to take advantage of their own family. It’s disgusting, is what it is, and I’m ready for these sloppy moms to be out of the media spotlight and back under rocks where they belong.
