The feuding family members of the 'Modern Family' teenage star agree to work out their issues in counseling pending a new hearing in March.


Ariel Winter's family is calling a truce in their feud drama. In a court hearing Wednesday, December 12, they agreed to undergo counseling to work out their stormy relationships. In the meantime, the teen star would continue to live with her older sister Shanelle Gray. Her father Glenn Workman would be in charge of her estate.

As part of the agreement, the mother Chrisoula Workman "shall have no contact with nor in any way interfere with Ariel Winter Workman's professional relationships and business contacts." L.A. Superior Court Judge Michael Levanas presiding the case said, "I believe things are going to get better. I'm thrilled we're taking that first step."

Chris, who's accused of physically and emotionally abusing Ariel, left the courtroom with teary eyes. She held hands with her husband as she braved the crowd of reporters without giving any comment. The "Modern Family" actress, meanwhile, hugged her sister and her lawyer after the hearing. She, too, has no comment.

Shanelle, who was allegedly removed from the family's home years ago due to similar abuse allegations, asked the court to grant her permanent guardianship of Ariel. Chris, who's not on a speaking term with Shanelle, argued that her older daughter only used Ariel as a stepping stone for her own career as an artist.

In the previous hearing, a report by the children services mentioned evidence of emotional abuse but deemed physical abuse allegation inconclusive. Chris vehemently denied any wrongdoings. She, in return, called the Alex Dunphy depicter a rebellious daughter and claimed the actress got mad after being banned from dating 18-year-old actor Cameron Palatas.

Glenn, who's been living separately from Chris, actually filed a request for Ariel's guardianship, but his bid was turned down by judge who took note of his inconsistent statement given to investigators. The father initially said in an interview with child protective workers that he wouldn't be able to care for her daughter.

Shanelle's attorneys requested the case and its proceedings be sealed, but a judge refused. The case was filed under Ariel's birth name, Ariel Workman, in order to avoid attention since guardianship cases in California are public record.

A new hearing is set in March to determine if Ariel will live permanently with Shanelle or have to return to the family's home.
