Ariel Winter's Mom

I Want to Grill Ariel's Shrink

About Oral Sex Chat

EXCLUSIVE

Chrystal Workman says authorities falsely accused her of talking oral sex to her daughter, "Modern Family" star Ariel Winter -- and she wants to get to the bottom of the claims by putting Ariel's psychiatrist and her attorney on the hot seat.

In her latest legal filing, Chrystal says she wants her attorneys to depose the doc and lawyer in order to defend herself against allegations of sexual abuse she believes Ariel made against her.

According to the docs, 2 investigators from the Department of Children and Family Services interviewed Chrystal on June 19, 2013 -- and asked her if she ever had a conversation with Ariel regarding oral sex with her boyfriend.

In the papers, Chrystal also alleges the DCFS investigators asked if she'd ever given Ariel a very graphic demonstration regarding how to use Monistat 7.

We are paraphrasing, and heavily, because Chrystal's own words in the papers are just that graphic.

Chrystal claims DCFS cleared her of all the allegations of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse.

The upshot ... she now thinks she deserves the right to grill Ariel's attorney and psychiatrist as part of her defense.

The big thing standing in Chrystal's way, of course, is a little something called attorney-client privilege and physician-client privilege.

I'd love to grill Chrystal's attorney and physician. Of course, since they apparently do not exist...

I find it hard to believe Chrystal when she insists she is not guilty of abusing her one and only child Ariel... when she had two other children she lost due to child abuse.

She's desperate for her kid's money, that's the bottom line. She wants Ariel to go back with her so she can spend Arie's money.

I think her mom is a nutcase. However, I'm not sure that conversations between Ariel's lawyer and psychologist with DCFS would be privileged information. Just conversations between them and Ariel.

OMG! This witch is showing the world just how desperate she is to get her hands on Ariel's money. How many people will she sue to get back custody? At this point, Ariel is of the age where a judge will take what Ariel want to do over anything her mother wants. So if Ariel says she does not want to live with her, the judge, especially in la la land, will grant Ariel's request, not her mother, who is obviously unhinged.

Feel very sorry for Ariel Winter and would not count on the words of DCFS, they are as reliable as probation officers with child predators. This women needs a padded room.

What the readers aren't told is that there were 6 people that can attest to the very graphic questions asked of the mother by the DCFS. The court do***ents tell the truth, however, TMZ does not.

Parents have no rights any more. The system is there to break up the family at every turn and make sure that kids are raised in the most disruptive ways possible. I don't blame a mother one bit for fighting for the right to raise her own child. Granted the kid is 16 and nearly grown, but to make her look incompetent and snatch her rights, is pushing the violation of her standing even further.


If she was cleared of all wrongdoing, why was her kid taken, just cause her kid doesn't like her? I don't think this is really fair. She probably was very liberal with this kid and let her have a mind of her own and it backfired. Some parents are like dictators and their kids don't dare oppose them.


The girl was probably fooling around with and adult male and the mother forbade it, so the daughter tried to play innocent like she would never do such a thing and her mother is sexually abusing her for bringing it up. I don't really know, but it is possible.


If they think the mother only wants the money, put the money in a trust and see if the mother still wants custody. I think mothers have more at stake than just money in terms of their kids' lives.

Let it go already! Your daughter doesn't want anything to do with you - and she obviously has her reasons for it. Move on with your life.

When is someone going to drowned this money grubbing hippo. This child need a restraining order and an armed guard to keep her mother away from her. I rarely feel sorry for anything that befalls a hollywood type but in this case the young kids got my sympathies...what a whack-job her mother is.

Mommy and her best boy will just keep bring legal cases until Ariel gives them a large chunk of money to go away. There is no hope for a relationship between Ariel and her parents after the depositions and interviews given - it seems to be Mommy must win at all costs.

This bitch needs to go awayyyyy-permanently. It seems to me that she's motivated by greed, & all about her. She knows her daughter is being properly cared for, she should be grateful for that. All she sees are $$ signs. Sad.
