Sofia Sends Joe a Sexy Message From the Emmys -- But Why Didn't She Bring Him!?

Looking gorgeous as ever, Sofia Vergara was one of the most talked-about stars from Monday night’s Emmy Awards. But the Modern Family star was missing one very important accessory while walking the red carpet — her new arm candy, of course!

Since they began dating earlier this summer, the actress and Joe Manganiello have been the talk of the town, but she decided to leave him at home for the big night…and gave Giuliana Rancic her reason for doing so. “He’s really hot,” she admitted. “That’s why I didn’t bring him. He looks too hot, too tall, he takes up a lot of space! So I was like, ‘Listen, Joe, don’t come!'”

Still, she couldn’t help but briefly gush about the romance. “He’s a really funny guy, which is something very important for me,” she said. “And a very nice guy.”


It seems Sofia was missing the True Blood hottie later in the evening though — she posted a photo of herself, showing off her enviable backside, and looking to be having a blast, with the caption, “Where r u BigBy?” paired with two heart emojis.
