'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.

"American Horror Story" House

On the Market for $4.5mil!


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."

Bikini Beach Party

AFTER Thief Strikes

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?

He is close to his mother, so what? If the same picture was painted but with his father, they would not make a big deal. What is really disturbing here is what shows is in the mind of the other contestants. The mother is right to complain, even the host contributed to paint a false and deviated picture of the mother/son team. Lucky guy for having a team/mother like her and lucky mom for having a son like him, The other people in the teams, including the host are jealous. Go mom/son team!!!!

my husband and our daughter love each other very much but would NEVER stand around and hold hands, hug, and kiss! It was just gross and you can't edit something that isn't there! The brother and sister didn't act like that nor did the dad and his son! It was gross and I feel sorry for his future wife...she has alot to put up with!!

sue them. don't make a scene unless you take action. sue them so they don't tear apart another family's bonds.

What's the big deal about incest? It's cool to show homosexuality on T.V, why not show someone with an incestuous relationship?

I'd presume them innocent athough that other mean couple called em weird and Rogan hinted at something off color too.On incest some book was published recently and the author claims its a growing problem in America that has been kept secret for too long.

I didn't think the clip was inappropriate at all! Even the way the producers doctored it (there were portions that were obviously repeated; they could do a better job editing!)

And the smack talking is just part of the gimmick of the show. The other contestants are just intimidated and Joe, well, I have nothing to say about that!

I hope this doesn't hurt the mom and son too, terribly. Soon enough, something new will get the media's attention and this too shall pass.

I watched the show with my son (22 yrs old) and we both were appalled by their touchy, way to friendly relationship. If anything they should be embarrassed and seek help. It was quite disturbing as a parent to watch their inappropriate behavior.

Kudos Snooki, its good to hear about something besides the latest sports player the Kardashian family has bagged and tagged. Who cares how skinny she is? Isn't being healthy what counts here?

I'm not the foremost expert on affection with your mom, since I've never actually hugged mine, but that seems like a reasonable level of affection...untill the son puts his hand on her bra strap. But it was probably just a slip.
