The Ariel Winter custody suit drama continues as Winter's mother Chrystal Workman has reportedly sought to discredit her other daughter Shanelle Workman -- Ariel's new court-appointed guardian -- by having the press leak nude photos of her.

As you may recall, Chrystal lost custody of 'Modern Family' star Ariel to her estranged adult daughter Shanelle after allegations of abuse against Ariel surfaced.

Chrystal said those accusations were unfounded and simply stemmed from her disapproval of Ariel's much-older boyfriend.

But Hollywood publicist Jonathan Hay is now talking about Chrystal's broke-ass motherly instincts, saying she approached him and asked him to shop around nude photos of Shanelle (who, by the way, Chrystal lost custody of some 20 years ago).

"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," Hay remarked. "Chrystal 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."

He added that Chrystal has called him "nonstop in the last 48 hours, trying to get me to leak these pictures,” but said he has no plans to do so. Maybe because Chrystal is certifiable and shouldn't have custody of a dustbunny, much less an actual human child.

Meanwhile, Chrystal has filed documents in an attempt to get copies of Shanelle's financial records, including “bank statements, tax returns and source of income,” because she's sure Shanelle only wants Ariel because the kid earns a lot of jack on 'Modern Family.'

Of course Mommie Dearest says she's doing all of this because she loves Arial and is "trying to make sure she doesn't fall under the wrong influences so she doesn't become the next Lindsay Lohan.”

Apparently she doesn't realize that Lindsay wasn't born the mess she is now. She had a lot of help from a selfish, exploitative mother along the way.
