If allegations against "Modern Family" actress Ariel Winter's mother are true, she might be in the running for worst parent of the year. First, Chrystal Workman was accused of being a horrific stage mom and lording over Winter during filming, keeping her from eating anything but vegetables and telling her her ears stuck out.

Then, Winter went to stay with her sister, Shanelle Gray, suggesting that her mom was abusing her.

Now, TMZ reports that Workman may have tried to leak nude pictures of Shanelle to the media in order, we presume, to discredit her ability to provide guardianship for Workman's ATM machine Winter.

According to the gossip site, publicist Jonathan Hay says that Workman was bothering him all week to try to get him to release the photos, which may be as many as 8 or 9 years old.
