If the acting thing hadn't worked out for Sofia Vergara, would she have ended up pole dancing somewhere?
Probably not, but…
When the Colombia-born beauty was honored by Elle last night at its inaugural Women in Television dinner, she said, "I never dreamed I was going to be able to be in the magazine. I mean, with these boobs I only belong in a strip bar or somewhere not very decent."
Vergara is up for a SAG Award for Female Actor, Comedy Series this Sunday for her hilarious work on Modern Family. The series is also nominated for Ensemble, Comedy Series.
"It's been a great year for me, to be a part of Modern Family and the success of the show," Vergara said during the festivities, which were presented by Ports 1961 and took place at Soho House in West Hollywood. "I never thought I was going to be part of a show like that and to be able to be in this country and make money—a lot of money!—with this accent."
Also at the dinner were mommy-to-be Rachel Zoe, Julie Benz, Judy Greer (and her superhot producer boyfriend), Taye Diggs, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Erika Christensen and Elle creative director Joe Zee, among others.
So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley told me she wasn't exactly sure what producers had in mind for next season's judges' panel. Nigel Lythgoe will be back, but Mia Michaels has bowed out. Adam Shankman's appearance will depend on his schedule because he's set to direct the movie adaptation of Broadway musical Rock of Ages.
Hot Tamale Train conductor Mary Murphy is returning after skipping last season. "I think we're going to rotate [judges] a bit more," Deeley said. "That makes it more interesting. It refreshes the format…It's nice to breath new life into it."
We can't wait!
