“Modern Family” star Ariel Winter’s mother, Chrystal Workman, has been dumped by her lawyer for being a nightmare to work with, according to TMZ.

Ever since she lost custody of her daughter, Workman has been trying to simultaneously get her back (allegedly for access to her money, claim naysayers) and clear her name of sex abuse accusations.

Apparently the lawyer was not up to do both of those Herculean tasks.


Rumors that “Teen Mom” Farrah Abraham got high six-figures for her sex tape may not be true; Fox411 claims she only got $10,000 – lame considering the money it generated for the distribution company.

Amid rumors that their 12-year relationship is on the rocks, Anna Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias have unloaded their Miami mansion.

Emma Watson and Benedict Cumberbatch topped Empire Magazine’s list of “100 Sexiest Movie Stars” – apparently in some bizarre alternate universe.

Further cementing his place as “coolest pontiff ever,” Pope Francis says he is a fan of Federico Fellini films.

Writer Tom Clancy, famous for best-selling thrillers “The Hunt for Red October” and “Patriot Games,” died Tuesday at age 66.
