'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."

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?

Well, this just goes to show you that the show uses real people, lol. I don't know if they show made them look that way or if they really act that way, but I was really disturbed by how much they were touching. It just seemed he really wanted people to know who he was with and that he loved her (mother-son love, not romantic love).

Fear factor is lead and edited by perverts......one more reason never to watch the show! Only a pervert can come with incest when a mother and son hug!

The producers of Fear Factor are disgusting for making a perfectly innocent, beautiful mother-son relationship seem in appropriate. Just because most Americans are rude to their parents and so eager to be independent from them, does not make it wrong for a boy to be very close to his mother when he is older. I hope she sues and gets ALOT of money from Fear Factor.

That stupid ass show,.."fear factor" is about as interesting as goose **** harding up. For that fool that host the show to allow his producers to make this mother son team look other then what they truely are (caring family) is pandering for ratings. How sick. I watched the show a couple times in the past, but this is one good reason NOT TO WATCH **** like this. Its getting to where any kind of affection between family members is taken out of context. Where is this country going?? What a sick society fo think like that. Joe is a punk bitch.

Don't see fear factor doing that....they were being very touchy/feely from the beginning of the show. I love my mom...but just like the article says..."I let go". I don't drape my arm over her shoulder and let me hand rest anywhere near her boob, but HER son did. I don't give my mother kisses on the forehead, head, face, lips that Linger long enough to make everyone in the living room look at each other and ask, "Are you SURE they are Mother and Son??"

It was a bit creepy for all us in the living room....And just reiterate a point - - - - - - I don't believe Fear Factor had any culpability in them "appearing to be too close", I just think they were too close. Waaaaaaay too natural for them to be hugging, hanging, kissing and draping all over each other

They didn't need to edit anything to make them look creepy! How can they blame it all on the edit of the show when all the other contestants were there the entire time and did not need any special editing and kept commenting on how creepy they were also. I am close with my family also and I don't smack my mom on the ass and rest my hand on her boob with my arm around her, or give her the passionate look in her eyes with plenty of soft kisses all over her face and head... Of course this doesn't mean incest... But if nothing else they should have been on Jerry Springer instead of Fear Factor!!
