Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

What Sofia Vergara Spends on Beauty: You May Be Surprised!

It’s time. The super-honest Modern Family star reveals her hour-plus primping routine and the DIY move she secretly does in her car.

Via Via Redbook Mag:

Sofia Vergara on ever considering plastic surgery:
“Why not? I mean, not yet, but maybe [I’ll do] my under-eye bags in my 50s. We’ll see what I need, but I’m not saying no.”

When Redbook asked if there are days where she doesn’t feel like getting glammed up:
“Not really, no. I don’t always curl my hair or wear false eyelashes, but I do full makeup every day and I always have. It takes me about an hour and 15 minutes to get ready. I take my time – I like showering, scrubbing, bubbling. Everyone is always rushing me! They’ll lie about when an event starts to try to get me there on time. But I always know, so I don’t give a damn.”

The part of getting ready that she doesn’t like:
“Manicures. I don’t have the patience for someone to give me one. So I’ll paint my nails in the car on the way to the Golden Globes or to the airport.”

Sofia Vergara Got Engaged and (Almost) Arrested On The Same Day

Sofia Vergara makes an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Valentine’s Day, Thursday, February 14th. Sofia shares her story of how she got engaged and almost arrested on the same day.

Ellen: You got engaged and then you almost got arrested, on the same day, right?

Sofia: Yes, it was a very big surprise. I didn’t know I was going to get engaged and it was the celebration of my 40th birthday. I did a very big birthday in Mexico…

So, one of the days we went on like a trip, you say? A tourist trip. We went to the Chichen Itza (Pyramids). You look at me like you don’t understand?

Ellen: This is how always look at you… You took them on a tourist trip. You mean you were showing them around.

Sofia: I took them to the pyramids… the Chichen Itza (Pyramids).

Ellen: Pyramids

Sofia: Whatever…(laughing) …

Sofia: So he was like let’s go take a picture up there and I’m like ..

Ellen: That’s you coming down (from the pyramid).

Sofia: That’s us coming down and there going to try and arrest us…

Ellen: Did the rope around it give you any indication that you shouldn’t be…

Sofia: Yeah, but he had said he had gotten permission. I swear to god he said he had gotten permission to go up there and take a picture so said, ok let’s go. So I went up he took the ring out there. I made sure I like it (shows Ellen the ring).

Ellen: Yeah, you like it. It’s beautiful.

Sofia: I like it, I put it on immediately and I said yes…and I checked (puts ring to her teeth) but then when we came down they want to arrest us because there were some nationals, no…local people…help me..

Ellen: Oh, no. I don’t want to correct you…

Sofia: Local people got really upset and they thought I was take advantage of the situation but it was not true….Ok, let’s change another story because you’re not getting it…

Ellen: Laughing…We’ll come back and we’ll talk about other things.

Sofia: Can I have a translator?

Gloria’s Mother Has Been Cast

In the world of Hollywood, there are only so many choice meaty roles for spicy latinas to go around. And if you thought Eva Longoria was spicy, then you need to go back to that rack and slap yourself with it.
No no no!
I’m talking caliente spice, chicos and chicas. I am talking Sofia Vergara heat. And now, for the first time on Modern Family’s history, the part of her madre has been cast and now we can see where those genes come from. And they come from none other than?
Elizabeth Peña!
For true fans of latina-dom, Peña is known from La Bamba and Rush Hour. She will guest star as Pilar, appearing on the 12th episode with Gloria’s sister who has just been cast as well. She will be played by actress Stephanie Beatriz of The Closer.
This stunt casting definitely works for me. Previous guest stars include Matthew Broderick and Shelley Long as Sofia’s husband’s first wife. I don’t watch this show often, but when I do? It’s hilarious. Great writing and acting, and the cast sticks together for those big paycheck raises a la Friends. What’s not to like!
Tune in!

Janelle Monae, The New CoverGirl

The versatile singer-songwriter has recently been named as one of the new faces representing CoverGirl cosmetics. Fans will be able to catch their first official peek at her pictorial spread in the September issue of Vogue. She joins CoverGirls Queen Latifah, Sofia Vergara, Pink, and Taylor Swift. The ‘Tightrope’ singer had this to say about her collaboration with the cosmetics giant:

“Growing up and trying to find myself as a woman and experimenting with makeup, I’d go buy magazines. I’d see Tyra Banks in the CoverGirl ads and I’d think, ‘Wow, she’s beautiful.’ It never looked like she had on too much makeup. There was just something clean and classic about her face. I believe in the idea of every woman finding their own beauty superpowers. I want to help redefine what it means to be a strong woman in the music and fashion worlds.”

It has always rubbed me the wrong way that Janelle Monae has never become a huge star in America. But then again, in this era of mediocrity that we live in currently, she is simply too good for today’s mainstream radio. Hopefully, these ads will give her a bit of of a boost and help her climb to the top of the pop heap where she belongs. Yes, Britney, Ke$ha, et al. I am talking about you!

Sofia Vergara: Engaged

When you are as hot as this woman, men should be hurling themselves over lava pits to get with you. Nick Loeb has finally come to his senses because fresh off of celebrating the Modern Family star’s 40th birthday, her on/off again man has popped the question and the two are now officially engaged to be married more than likely before the end of the year.

Loeb popped the question while the two were vacationing in Mexico, in the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza. The paparazzi has already spotted the South American spitfire donning a huge rock on her ring finger.

With the marriage of Sofia Vergara all but a done deal, Hollywood is running out of hot Latinas to marry off. J.Lo will be married again any other minute, sure, but what about the two Evas, Mendes and Longoria? I’m not a huge fan of either of them, but I will admit that they are gorgeous and are worthy of a man. I will notice that most of these latina woman in question are certifiable cougars and my question is this: are latin women inherently cougars or is the new growing trend? And what do we call older black women preying on younger men?

Pumas?!

Sofia Vergara and Nick Loeb Split!

Sofia Vergara and Nick Loeb are moving on after a couple years together. Heck, Vergara even decided to pack up her belongings and ship herself out of Loeb’s penthouse apartment.

Celebuzz has confirmed that Sofia and her man had a series of blow-ups and blow-outs over the weekend and she got fed up and left.

“It was her decision to end the relationship and not his,” an insider told us. “One thing is for certain, though: there’s no third party involved.”

What else went down?

Vergara, 39, attended the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute gala earlier this week without Loeb, the tall and handsome scion to Manhattan’s Loeb, Rhoades & Co. banking fortune.

It was there that the actress was overhead confiding in friends that the couple, who dated for two years, had been “arguing a lot, particularly over the past few months.”

Another source told Celebuzz, “In more ways than you could imagine, Sofia and Nick were very different people. He is a very mellow guy. She’s the opposite. Sofia wanted to be wined and dined. Living the life of a Hollywood star, if you like.”

As for Loeb? He was more focused on his work and wanting to pursue a political career.

And while two years together is an eternity in Hollywood, I’m sure there were tears, but Vergera knows that she is one hot commodity and won’t have a problem snagging herself up a good guy. And if Loeb has some cash, he’ll be just fine if he’s willing to spend it.

Quote of the Day: Sofia Vergara

“It’s fantastic to be near the top of the beautiful women polls – I’m nearly 40. I wonder if they’re crazy sometimes when people compare my ass with Kim Kardashian’s. She’s ten years younger than me, she should be upset! I shouldn’t be competing in these lists.”
