Ariel Winter's Mom

Gunning for Entire 'Modern Family' Cast

2/13/2014 1:13 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0213_modern_family_abcAriel Winter's mom wants to drag the entire cast of "Modern Family" into a custody war ... trying to force them on the stand and tell the judge she's not a terrible mother. 

Chrystal Workman wants a small village of witnesses to testify, including Ed O'Neill, Julie Bowen, Sofia Vergara, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Angela Gould and Diane Rodriguez.

Workman also wants ABC Network Prez Paul Lee and show producer Steve Levitan.

In all, Workman wants to call 83 witnesses.

And get this ... she doesn't have a lawyer so she would be grilling them herself.

If it happens ... Ariel will turn 18 before the trial is over. Thing is ... the judge has pretty much made it clear ... ain't gonna happen.

Don't bring out the Al Bundy in Ed O'Neil, he will punch that goof. He scored 4 touchdowns in one game for Polk High

Crystal needs to give it up. EVERYONE knows she's just after Ariel's hard earned money. Why can't some parents just be happy that their kids are so successful at such a young age instead of trying to drain them of their money that they achieved through the success? I know Ariel is counting the seconds til' she turns 18 & will legally be able to handle her own finances. Keep your head up girl!

If Workman did manage to regain custody that kid will hate her even more, and probably apply for emancipation. Give it up Mom, your kid doesn't want your abusive, crazy ass around!

What a sorry excuse of a woman and mother. She's fighting not for her daughter but for the money her daughter has made. What a pathetic loser.

The cast members think she is a huge wackadoodle. They were the ones sneaking Ariel food because her mom wouldn't give her any.

If you need 83 people to convince a judge you're not an abusive, manipulative, leech of a mother- well lady you got some issues. No one will come to your defense.

Maybe after those 83 witnesses all say she is a nutjob and terrible mother that's only after her daughters money she might get the hint. But probably not.

Mom needs to stop all this publicity and work on her relationship with her husband and both daughters. Ariel is 16 she can just get emancipated and end all this
