Ariel Winter

I WON'T Talk

To My Mom

3/29/2013 12:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0329-ariel-mother-6
Ariel Winter's lawyer told a judge today, the "Modern Family" star wants NOTHING to do with her mother ... and won't even sit in the same room with her.

Ariel's guardianship case was back in court, and mama Chrystal Workman complained ... her daughter refuses to do therapy with her mom.  Chrystal wanted the judge to force Ariel into therapy with her mom, but the judge nixed the request.

The judge said he couldn't force a teenager to have a relationship with her mom if she doesn't want it.  

As we previously reported .... 15-year-old Ariel is now under the guardianship of her sister Shanelle Gray, after Ariel complained she was being physically and emotionally abused by her mom.  The court found emotional abuse and stripped Chrystal of her parental rights.

Ariel hasn't spoken with her mom in 5 months -- when the guardianship was created.

I'm proud of Ariel. It takes a lot of strength to remove a parent, even an abusive one, from your life. She is better off.

How could she talk to her mom or anybody else for that matter, with the 20 cheeseburgers, fried chicken, ice cream, pasta, and chili cheese fries that she's been stuffing her spoiled fat face with? I can hear her sister now, "Ariel, the pizza man is here!"

From all reports Ariel has a better home situation with her sister, brother-in-law (who played Todd Palin in the HBO movie Game Change) and their two kids. Apparently they have family dinners, Ariel goes to an actual high school, she has structure and incidentally Ariel has been wearing age appropriate dresses at awards shows since she moved in with her sister. Her tweets are also very positive since the fall.

"Chrystal wanted the judge to force Ariel into therapy with her" Maybe you should go to therapy alone until you can take some responsibility for your actions and realize what you're doing to your daughter is not right and it's not being a mom, just because she's your daughter does not mean you get to live off her career and do anything you please to her. There's already enough lohans.

Nonsense    

This is not celebrity news even if a celebrity is involved. This a personal, family situation which should not be made public. TMZ stick to the gossip stuff and leave the kid alone.
