Sofia Vergara Wants Women to Stop Flirting With Her Fiancé Joe Manganiello


Back off, ladies! Sofia Vergara is claiming her territory — well, her man, that is. The Modern Family bombshell, who's set to wed hunky actor Joe Manganiello in just a few months, dished to Jimmy Kimmel Monday night about her engagement ring, wedding plans and why she wasn't too keen on dating the super handsome Manganiello in the first place — as she wasn't too thrilled at the thought of other women fawning over her man.

"I told him when I met him that he was too handsome," the actress said on Jimmy Kimmel Live! "But now I'm very grateful that I did went out with him."

"Are you careful about dating guys that are too handsome?" Kimmel asked, to which the Colombian-American star replied, "At that point, yes, because I had just broken up with my ex [Nick Loeb]. I didn't want to go into a relationship with somebody that...I thought he was going to be too much work, because girls were throwing themselves at him. I'm like, 'Ay! No! Please, I want somebody normal.'"

Has Vergara actually witnessed women flirting with her fiancé? "I've seen it," she told Kimmel, adding, "Girls don't care — I mean, have you seen him? I mean, I understand," she said. "I don't judge them."

While other women may gawk at her strapping, 6-foot-5 fiancé, Vergara's the one with the ring! The actress was proudly showing off her bridal hardware to the Kimmel crowd, telling the late-night host, "He knew exactly what I deserved."

She also said that she and Manganiello are "very excited" to tie the knot. "We'll kind of keep it a little private, but it's been kind of impossible because people have been very excited in my family," the actress said, noting that it "was very hard" to trim the guest list down to 400 people. "We said, 'Two hundred for you, two hundred for me,' but my 200 is like family, so I couldn't invite many of my friends...The truth is that he gave me some of his, because I was in trouble. There were people from work that I needed to bring."

The entire Modern Family cast will be in attendance, she added — and we already know how excited her costars are for the upcoming nuptials!
