Modern Family star Ariel Winter is making a pretty strong statement via her Instagram account that her mother is basically dead to her, by totally cutting her mother out of her Mother’s Day 2013 greetings. Instead, she wished a heartfelt Happy Mother’s Day to her 34-year old sister and temporary legal guardian, Shanelle Gray, leaving her biological mother out in the cold.
“Happy Mother’s Day to my amazing mister, Shanelle Gray. I know everyone is going to ask what a mister is, so I’ll explain. It means mom/sister to me. 🙂 She’s my best friend, the shoes to my laces, the straw to my berry. She’s also the most incredible mother….She’s the most amazing woman I have ever met and ever will meet…I love you so much Shanelle, thank you for everything you are. You will always be my mister! With that said, Happy Mother’s Day to my the most beautiful person inside and out. Happy Mother’s Day mommysistermister. I love you.”
Compare that to Winter’s heartfelt Mother’s day tweet to her mother in 2012, which said: “Happy mother’s day to one of the most amazing moms in the world. Mine!:) Love you mommy! Happy mother’s day everyone!”
Wow…what a difference a year makes, right?
Winter and her mother Crystal Workman are currently center stage in an intense legal drama, which includes: physical and emotional abuse allegations hurled at Wonkman, allegations that Winter’s mother tried to get nude photos of her daughter Shanelle published, and ending with Ariel Winter’s mother losing custody of her daughter.
