Sofia Vergara is the star of one of the hit TV shows, Modern Family.  At 42, she is on top of the world with everything she has going.  She earned a total of $140 million dollars from June 2013 to June 2014. It is reported that she earns $325,000 per episode but also earns income with her endorsements.  She is the face of Diet Pepsi, Cover Girl, Head & Shoulders and the co-founder of Latin World Entertainment.

Sofia was born, July 10, 1972 in Barranquilla, Colombia by her mother, Margarita and her Father Julio.  She attended a private bilingual Spanish/English school and studied dentistry.  She was discovered by a photographer and it led to many jobs in the modeling and television industry. From 1995 to 1998, Sofia co-hosted a travel show, Fuera de Serie which gave her exposure in the United States.  The exposure led to a film roles and a TV series.  She faced many hardships during her days in Colombia and even after becoming a TV star.  She divorced and became a single parent.  In addition to this, she was diagnosed with cancer but, after being treated has had a full recovery.  She has received four Emmy nominationBriannaHopeBeaton2.jpgs for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.  She has one Son, Manolo, and they reside in Los Angeles, California.

Sofia is great at what she does.  She has great comedic timing and always brings out the best in her characters. One of my favorite quotes by Sofia is “I guess at the end of the day, all women like to be appreciated and treated with respect and kindness.”
