Broadway luminaries Patti LuPone, Lena Hall, and Jesse Tyler Ferguson added their voices to the growing chorus of people advocating for women’s reproductive rights on May 3 at 54 Below. Hosted by Martha Plimpton and her advocacy nonprofit A is For, “Broadway Acts for Women” featured musical theater stars performing karaoke numbers selected by an audience bidding on various prizes. Based on the evening’s rollicking success—raising over $40,000 for the Center for Reproductive Rights—it is sure to be the first of many. “I wouldn’t be standing here right now if I didn’t have access to abortion when I was a younger woman,” said Plimpton onstage. In between biddings and impromptu performances, the actor-activist spoke passionately about abortion as a fundamental human right; in the last four years the procedure has been restricted by over 200 new pieces of American legislation, denying women safe access to reproductive health care. »

Sofía Vergara tells Vanity Fair contributing editor Lili Anolik she almost didn’t end up with fiancé Joe Manganiello for one reason: he was just too good-looking. “The day that I sent the press release [announcing the breakup with a different fiancé, Nick Loeb], Joe immediately contacted Jesse Tyler Ferguson [Modern Family’s Mitchell Pritchett], like, Please, please, please tell her I want her number. And I’m like, Jesse, no, he’s too handsome,” Vergara tells Anolik. “Then, after two days of Jesse trying to convince me, I’m like, O.K., give him my number. I’m thinking, I’m in New Orleans shooting, and he’s in L.A. Nothing’s going to happen. But we started talking a lot, and then he showed up in New Orleans. Since then we’ve been inseparable. There’s nothing about him I’d change other than the fact that he’s four years younger than me [he’s 38 to her 42].” The story is accompanied by a sexy »

Sofia Vergara may have one of the best bods in the business, but she even admits to having insecurities about her breasts! "My boobs are, like, huge," she says in a new interview in the May issue of Vanity Fair. "My whole life, buying a bra was a nightmare. What I used to do when I moved to L.A., I found places like Frederick’s of Hollywood that make bras for [strippers]." "Believe me, I wish I had fake boobs," she continues. "I lay down and they completely go down like all the way, like here. It’s not fun." The "Modern Family" star, who flaunts some serious cleavage on the cover of the mag, admits that her assets are always a factor when she's picking a red carpet dress. In fact, she often gets criticized for wearing the same silhouette, which is something that bothers the actress. "Sometimes you read in the press like, »

"The day that I sent the press release [announcing the breakup], Joe immediately contacted Jesse Tyler Ferguson," Vergara recalled. "[He was] like, 'Please, please, [...] »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Monday night marked James Corden's debut as the new "Late Late Show" host, replacing Craig Ferguson. Tom Hanks and Mila Kunis were his first guests, and you can see they redesigned the set so they're all just sitting next to each other. Mila went on record to say she loved being pregnant and loves being a mom. Bold stance! James told a story where he thought he and his wife were being followed by paps but the photog was really shooting Ashton and Mila. The three of them talked about their kids, and Tom said he is the new face of "manspreading."
In the second video, James introduced himself and the band, »

For six seasons “Modern Family” has entertained with its unique brand of jokes, slapstick and loving family moments, and the cast and creators gathered at PaleyFest Saturday night to talk about how they keep the show fresh six years in and what keeps “Modern Family” a modern favorite.
The biggest challenge of being in the sixth season, said Ty Burrell, is “not wanting to just do the slotted thing that you’ve worked into over the years. Everybody’s working really hard to ensure that we’re doing new things. Burrell added that he doesn’t believe sitcom characters can truly grow and change, but rather that new situations reveal new sides and layers to the characters.
“I don’t think you guys really want us to grow, because if we did, I wouldn’t fall over things anymore,” he said.

After three straight years with four of the six supporting comedy actor slots belonging to "Modern Family," last year finally saw the majority figure cut in half with only Ty Burrell and Jesse Tyler Ferguson making the cut (and Burrell winning). Ed O'Neill and/or Eric Stonestreet could make a comeback, or maybe the "Family" love will reduce further this time around? That all depends on whether Tony Hale ("Veep"), Fred Armisen ("Portlandia"), Adam Driver ("Girls") and/or Andre Braugher ("Brooklyn Nine-Nine") can return from last year, and if Martin Sheen ("Grace and Frankie"), Sam Waterson ("Grace and Frankie"), Laurence Fishburne ("Blackish") and/or Josh Gad ("The Comedians") can squeak in for their shows' first seasons.
