'Fear Factor' Mom

PISSED Over Last Night's Show --

My Son's No Oedipus!!!

12/15/2011 8:39 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF



"Fear Factor" producers DIABOLICALLY edited Tuesday night's episode to falsely suggest the mother-son team have an incestuous relationship ... this according to the mom. 

Monica -- the ex-bodybuilder who teamed up with her son Matias on last night's premiere episode -- tells us, FF editors used a clip of her and her son hugging to make it look like they ... touch each other too much.

Joe Rogan even took a shot at the duo on the show ... joking, "I hug my mom every time I see her ... but then I let go."

Monica tells us, "Last night when the show aired, I was SHOCKED. I am appalled and disgusted at the comments of people on the show about Matias’ and my relationship and how it seems ‘inappropriate’ for a mother and son. Are you kidding me?"

Monica adds, "In no way, shape, or form am I inappropriate with my son ... I’m broken hearted. Joe Rogan ... shame on YOU. You are a father. How dare you talk about my son that way?"

Monica says she's probably not gonna sue -- but she wants everyone to know she's pissed.

We've reached out to "Fear Factor" for comment -- so far, no word back.

1215_aol_ahs

Want to own one of TV's most haunted houses? For $4.5 million, you can!

The L.A. home featured in "American Horror Story" is back on the market, according to a new listing with realtor Joe Babajian.

While the nearly 30,000 square-foot property doesn't actually come with a sexy ghost maid, the spirit of the Black Dahlia, bodies buried in the backyard or a man in a rubber suit (we hope!), it does boast six bedrooms, 5 baths, Tiffany stained-glass windows and a recording studio.

The listing calls it a "One-of-a-kind residence" and a "once in a generation opportunity."

Lindsay Lohan in a bikini in HawaiiHere it is ... PROOF Lindsay Lohan can still act ... because the actress hit the beach like she didn't have a care in the world Sunday ... hours after someone jacked $10k out of her purse.

With her Playboy spread officially released online, Lohan showed off her physique in a tiny bikini ... that couldn't quite tame her breasts.

TMZ broke the story ... Lohan freaked out Saturday night when her purse went missing at a house party ... a purse which contained her ID, passport and $10k in cash.

The purse was eventually returned ... minus the money.  Would you be smiling?

So is that incestuous mom saying now that the show struck fear into her? Hey, if you can't run with the big dogs, stay on the porch. These reality shows are all about rating and everyone is fair game. She can sue, but she'll get nowhere. She's peeved because now the world knows that her son's a momma's boy.

I saw the episode, and EVERYBODY (myself included) thought their "relationship" was a little too close, and it wasn't because of editing. It was definitely creepy. Almost like they give each other simultaneous foot massages kind of creepy. There's touchy-feely, and then there's that mother-son. Plus she was just plain bitchy, easy to root against her.

What a douche Rogan is! I didn't see the pilot and was looking forward to watching good ol' F****ain but not after hearing this crap. What a horrible way for a Mother and Son to be treated on national TV. NBC sucks and they always will!

Monica, if you don't think that it was over the top, then definitely have a problem. I'm an Italian mother and very affectionate, but I would NEVER EVER do that with my son. I kiss him, yes and I hug him, but that was way too much affection. It made me very uncomfortable and I'm happy that Joe addressed it.

Sick people!!! Probably white people talking all that chite. Latino's and many other cultures are VERY affectionate with their grown children and it has nothing to do WITH ANY SEXUAL CONTENT!!!

Joe Rogan ... shame on YOU. You are a father. yeah and the media are monsters. they cant even handle a loving mother and son relationship without questioning it. when i have children one day i hope to have ssuch a loving relationship with my own children. in todays time its rare to have this type of old school bond. it sweet and beautiful... we should all want the same.

Fear factor and no talent Rogan should be ashamed of themselves for editing the show the way they did, it's hurtful and disrespectful to the contestants and was not necessary.

Bracelet, microfone, and guitar. It was a waste of 2 whole seconds worth of my time. It took longer to write this comment.-- We live in a world were if you brush up against a co-worker, its sexual harrasment. The coaches office is now accesed by the hallway instead of the locker room on all new constructions, just in case they're a pedophile. Parents dont give there children any affection like that anymore because if the neighbor sees it you will have the local police knocking on your door. I gave my daughter a kiss goodbye one day dropping her off at college. College mind you, she called me 2 hrs later a hysterical wreck crying because she was sent to the deans office and grilled like a common criminal just to make sure evrything was allright because one of the teachers saw it. Im sure that somewhere out there a study is being done on parents affection and there children and how each group is turning out. Another rediculous waste of money comming out of the taxpayers pockets.

1. Yea they are a little too close for Mom/Son. I actually thought they were a couple at first.

2. I just saw Snookie's picture scrolling down to the comment forum, and I threw up in my mouth. Please stop showing her fat ass everywhere. Her and the entire cast of Jersey Shore should be shot.
