Modern Family Star is Divorcing Her Parents?

Given it is Wednesday, I felt a Modern Family post would be appropriate. Although there is wonderful harmony between the cast members on the show, it seems that Alex Dunphy does not have such a Pleasantville situation at home. Given she is trying to separate… from her parents!

The 14-year-old Ariel Winter who plays Alex is dating Disney star boyfriend Cameron Palatas. Although the two look cute out and about in photos, there is a not so cute scenario going on behind-the-scenes.

Back in the day I thought she was a typical young star who would end up down the wrong path… blah, blah, blah. But, she has really done well for herself. The most recent things I have seen her in movies such as A Walk to Remember (old classic), Scrubs episodes, and heard her voice on animated flicks like Tangled.

I must say I am very inspired by her continuous career moves, and she does all of that with a big smile. She recently dished to E! Online her three rules for living a happier and healthier life. Get out … Read the rest…
