Ariel Winter Praises Sister on “Ellen”: “She’s Been The Best Part of My Life”

There has always been a special bond between sisters, and Ariel Winter credits her big sis, Shanelle Gray, with helping her survive a toxic situation with her mother, Chrisoula Workman.

During her interview on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Monday (March 21), the “Modern Family” star gushed, “She’s been the best part of my life. She really is my best friend. She’s the most important thing to me. She’s been there for me through absolutely everything. And I just love her so much. I count on her more than anything.”

Ariel also added that she still doesn’t talk to her mom- “Well, it’s most definitely hard to grow up in the industry, but just grow up in any instance without a mother from a very young age. And it has been very sad for me, but at the same time it’s been much better for me emotionally and physically to be on my own and have a better, safer household and support system… I don’t really talk about the reason that I don’t speak to my mother. It’s kind of been publicized, but the reason I don’t really share that is because I want to give her the same respect that she didn’t give to me publicly. It just really didn’t try to fix anything with me. It just tried to make herself look better and I’m not interested in doing that. People can make their own judgments. I did what I had to do for myself.”
