Ariel Winter's mom tried to leak nude photos of Shanelle Gray
It's been a spell since we've checked in on Modern Family's Ariel Winter and her family court drama. Seems her mother Chrisoula "Crystal" Workman's big plan to discredit Ariel's guardian, Crystal's adult daughter Shanelle Gray, was to ask a publicist to leak nude photos of her. As if this wasn't all kinds of trashy before ...
"Crystal Workman, the mother of Ariel Winter, wanted me to represent her and leak nude photos in the media of her other daughter Shanelle," Hollywood agent Jonathan Hay told RadarOnline. "In all my years of being a publicist, I have never seen anyone stoop as low as wanting to sell out and destroy the reputation of her own daughter. Crystal said she wanted the public to see Shanelle for who she really was and smear her daughter in attempts to try and get custody back of Ariel."
On Monday, Crystal filed court documents asking for Shanelle's income and expense declarations to prove the 34-year-old Gray is unfit to care for Ariel, 14. Hays said Workman tried for two days to get him to leak the pics, an idea he finds abhorrent. "Clearly, Ariel is in the right place with Shanelle and away from her mother," he said.
As for Crystal, she defends her actions by saying it's all very necessary: "I love my daughter Ariel and I am trying to make sure she doesn't fall under the wrong influences so she doesn't become the next Lindsay Lohan," she said. Yes, but in this scenario, she's the Dina, and we all know how well that's been working for LiLo.
