Ariel Winter

No-Show In Court

11/20/2012 10:39 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

12:11 PM PST:
 The judge just recessed for lunch to read the DCFS reports. Back at 1:30

11:08 AM PST: 
The judge said he just received mutiple reports from the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services and is now reading them. 

Ariel Winter
will not be in court for the hearing which could determine if her sister gets a formal guardianship.

Ariel's sister, Shanelle Gray, will also be absent and that strongly suggests the court will not conduct a full-blown hearing today. The likely reason -- the judge is about to call the case, and as of now the report from the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services has not been filed with the court. The DCFS report is vital to the decision.

The likely resolution today will be that the judge will keep the status quo -- meaning Ariel will stay with her sis until a formal hearing can be held.

Nice going, DCFS, more wasted time in the courts. It's a wonder why they are so backed up. I'm sure TMZ staffers are rubbing their hands together. This means we get a week's worth of two to three threads a day on this child and her family. Who's next to speak to TMZ, a second cousin twice removed who's heard stories from the rest of the family?

I've not met one person outside of TMZ who knows who this girl is or who is at all interested in this case. Give it up, TMZ.

"No show" makes it sound like they didn't bother. They aren't going because there is no point for them to be there today.

"No show." Not a real no show.

Whatever happened in the past the relationship between Mother and daughter is really bad. Forcing the daughter back is not going to resolve it and any court decision is supposed to in the best interests of the minor. Long term she may seek emancipation but short term she needs a calm stable home which she may only get outside her family. If the court prevents access to her money to all members of her family it might help.

Who cares. So sick of seeing stories on this girl and her uninteresting drama. After having to see all this crap about her daily by TMZ, I hope she ends up with whichever person wants to steal all her money.

Something tells me when this girl is legal, she will be Justin Beiber's next girlfiriend. She is a more age appropriate Selena Gomez look-alike for him.

This is crazy. That child should be sent home to her mother NOW. And, no, she can't date that 18 year old. Sorry, so sad, too bad. No way, brat! Go home!
