Uhhhhhhh did anyone else think that was awkward?
Weird. But it gets even MORE uncomfortable.
She tossed it back to the show's host, Miley Cyrus, by
Wow! This can't bode well for her lawsuit!
The attorney Roy Penuela claimed the Modern Family actress's mother was making it "unreasonably difficult" for him to do his job, and the two were apparently fighting over money issues!
Which is weird because those seem like similar reasons why Ariel dropped her mother in the first place!
The actress cited emotional and physical abuse against her mother, and it definitely seems like the mother's lawyer witnessed some of that emotional abuse!
We're curious to see now if the mother Chrystal will hire a new lawyer, or just represent herself!
Either way — her chances of regaining custody seem like close to nil!

This is like the family from hell!
The Modern Family actress's mother Chrystal Workman has filed some unusual legal documents in which we guess she hopes to win custody of her daughter back.
She claims her daughter has made accusations against her of "sexual abuse or sexual molestation."
Here's the mother's response against these claims:
Ariel Winter is one of the rising young stars in television for her starring part on Modern Family.
Part of Ariel's appeal is her supreme cuteness!!!
But the little lady couldn't have always been this cute, right? Wrong!!!
Ariel shared a throwback picture of her as little girl with her big sis' Shanelle Workman!
Here's what she wrote in the picture's caption:
Ariel Winter, AKA Alex from Modern Family, AKA Sophia The First, is ready to take the next big step in life after fame — driving!
She got her learner's permit (she's only 15, you guys!), and she can now hit the road! You know, as long as she has a parent or guardian present!
Here's how she expressed her excitement:
Modern Family’s Ariel Winter just can't stop the family drama!
Despite the 15-year-old's insistence that she's very happy living with her older sister slash guardian - Winter's older brother Jimmy Workman has filed legal documents asking to give him custody of Ariel Winter.
Jimmy claims Ariel's older sister Shanelle Gray is a bad role model for the television star who exploits the actress to promote her acting school.
He also claims Shanelle was in public "almost nude revealing her private parts," and eggs Ariel on to spend a lot of money for a party lifestyle.
Here's what the sister's lawyer said:
We may not be “too young,” but we most defs want one of these shirts!
Modern Family’s Ariel Winter stepped out in Studio City on Sunday for a day out at the local farmers market.
Ever the adoring aunt, the actress looked over sister Shanelle Gray’s kids Skylar and Parker while donning a HIGHlarious “Too Young For Ashton” t-shirt.
Wonder what Ashton Kutcher thinks of that!
Or maybe this is her way of saying she's NOT joining Two and a Half Men as Charlie's lesbian daughter!
With that said, it’s great to see Ariel out with her loved ones, especially given her current mama dramz!
Way to power through, lady!
