Not sure if you’ve heard, but there’s quite a controversy going on between Modern Family‘s Sarah Hyland and Lea Michele’s fans.
It all started when Sarah Hyland was a guest on E!’s Fashion Police show with Joan Rivers. They were discussing Lea Michele and how she’s got the whole “posing on the red carpet” down. Then Joan asked Sarah to try to imitate Lea, and she did:
Well, after THAT, Lea’s fans exploded on Twitter, going after Sarah for dissing Lea. It got to the point where Sarah had a few reactions to all the bashing:
I did not intend for my comments to be taken in a malicious way. But I did hate the dress. Called her ass great. Did u all hear that one?
In no way am I jealous of Lea Michelle. I’m happy with my own life and am not jealous of anyone elses n the world.Congrats Lea. U know how to work the red carpet. I can’t take it as seriously as you. That’s all I wanted to show on FP. It’s strange to me. But I won’t apologize. I’m an outspoken person. I own what I said about that outfit. And I mimicked what I saw with my own two eyes.Everyones saying How can I say that without even knowing her. But do any of you know her? Have any of u known her for 6 years?
At the Emmy Awards last night, E!’s Guiliana Rancic interviewed Sarah and asked her about the whole controversy. You could tell Sarah was pretty uncomfortable with the whole thing:
I do think that when Sarah did imitate Lea and her posing, it was all for fun. I mean, that’s what Fashion Police does — they MAKE FUN and CRITIQUE the fashion. That’s it. On the other hand, they always say that there’s at least SOME TRUTH to every joke. I’m sure Lea didn’t even think for ONE MINUTE that it was a personal jab by Sarah at her…but it was kinda cute how Lea’s fans came to her defense like that.
Here are just some of my other favorite ladies’ fashion from tonight’s Emmy Awards:
Julie Bowen ("Modern Family")
Julie’s so skinny that she can pretty much wear anything, but this dress really suited her.
Sofia Vergara ("Modern Family")
Sofia was in the “popular color” group this year…and I love that sweeping across the front! Fit her so well too! So pretty!
Cobie Smulders ("How I Met Your Mother")
The main thing I loved about this dress was the color! When in the sea of red, this blue was a breath of fresh air!
Zooey Deschanel ("New Girl")
I thought Zooey’s dress matched her so well! The ribbon around her waist…it added JUST A SPLASH of contrast color! Loved that!
Martha Plimpton ("Raising Hope")
We’re so used to seeing her look so “homey” on Raising Hope that it was so awesome to see Martha so GLAM! Loved that wine color…she looks great!
Kate Winslet ("Mildred Pierce")
Always the epitome of class, and even tho she was ALSO in the #1 color of the night…which couldn’t have almost been redundant somehow, once again Kate hits a homerun in this dress! Love the style…so simple yet elegant! Beautiful!
Break.com released this music video with Modern Family‘s Sarah Hyland and former American Idol contestant Elliott Yamin (Season 5) in a music video to a variation of Stevie Wonder’s “I Just Called To Say I Love You.” The video also stars Matt Prokop (High School Musical 3), who I believe is Sarah’s boyfriend in real life (assuming they’re still dating).
The lyrics have all been changed and the song focuses on the big impact of social media in today’s world…It’s quite hilarious actually.
The cast of Modern Family did another commercial specially for the Oscars, which was aired during the awards show. This year’s one wasn’t AS good as last year’s, but still HILARIOUS. Especially Gloria, Cam & Mitchell.
Female stars from Glee (Lea Michele & Jane Lynch), Modern Family (Julie Bowen & Sofia Vergara), How I Met Your Mother (Alyson Hannigan) & Raising Hope (Martha Plimpton) participated in a panel today:
L to R: Julie Bown, Sofia Vergara, Lea Michele, Jane Lynch, Martha Plimpton & Alyson Hannigan
Some tidbits from the panel:
How I Met Your Mother’s Alyson Hannigan starting using comedy to her advantage at a young age. “When I was growing up, I knew if I could make my mom laugh, I wouldn’t get in trouble,” she says. “She was either going to yell or laugh.”
Without even a laugh track on Modern Family, Julie Bowen is desperate to get her fix. “I’m wildly insecure and I like an instant laugh, but that’s why I have a therapist,” she says. “She laughs at me for two hours a week.”
Classic comedies featured women as being the beautiful foil for the man. “She’s there to make him look like an a–,” Martha Plimpton says. “Are women allowed to be funny? Yeah, we’re not there because they’re allowing us to be there, we’re there because…the world is a funny place and it needs women to be funny in it.” Adds Lea Michele: “The mold is changing. You can be beautiful and be funny.”
So says Jane Lynch. The 50-year-old funny lady has taken a few roles from men in her day. “When I first started, I did a lot of roles originally written for men. The role in The 40 Year Old Virgin was written for a man. Sue Sylvester is a man,” she jokes.
Sofia Vergara does not mind that a wealth of comedy can be found in her butchering of the English language. “With me, [the writers] have no choice,” she says. “I’m so lucky to have this character so perfectly written for me. I’m never going to be able to have another job like this, so I’m taking advantage of my 15 minutes of time — oh, of fame!”
Modern Family‘s Rico Rodriguez (Manny) was a guest on The Tonight Show last week.
Rico was telling Jay about how he bought a magic set a while back…and he performed two magic tricks. I gotta say…they were quite impressive, especially the one involving an Oreo cookie. Oh, and “The Ridiculous Rico” is his magician name. Cute huh?
Well, Glee did not disappoint in the ratings market…
Fox was No. 1 for the night as the musical dramedy drew 12.3 million viewers and its second-highest rating ever among the 18-to-49 demographic. Tuesday night’s Season 2 premiere was also up 57 percent over Glee‘s premiere last fall (which was a repeat of its spring preview), and it was the night’s highest-rated series in the demo.
Family‘s Season 2 premiere drew 12.6 million viewers and was the night’s highest-rated show among adults 18 to 49, according to overnight Nielsen estimates. That demo rating was also a 19 percent improvement over the show’s debut last fall.
Jane Lynch for winning BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS, COMEDY! Totally well-deserved! What would Glee be without Sue Sylvester?! And NO ONE would be able to play that role like Jane…she’s just AWESOME! Her acceptance speech was very funny (of course) and humble.
Eric Stonestreet won for BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR, COMEDY! How awesome is that?! All of the men from MF (besides Ed O’Neill) were nominated…and it was really hard to say which of the 3 should get it. But Eric really is SO GREAT as Cam. He’s SUCH a character. And Eric’s acceptance speech was so sweet and touching. Congrats to him! SIDENOTE: There was a shot of Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Mitchell) while Eric was giving his speech…and he was totally crying. So sweet!
The Good Wife‘s Archie Panjabi won for BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS, DRAMA! Wow! That was totally unexpected! I’ve mentioned before about how her character, Kalinda, MAKES that show for me, and I was ecstatic to see that she got nominated for that role…but to win an Emmy! So well-deserved, and such great publicity for the show, which is still so new! If you haven’t checked out The Good Wife, I highly recommend it…if anything, watch it for Archie. She’s GREAT.
MODERN FAMILY winning for BEST COMEDY SERIES! Woohoo! ALMOST a bit of an upset, considering Glee had 19 nominations, including this one…so WOW! I really wish those two shows weren’t in the same category…’cause then one HAS to lose. But I’ve always felt Modern Family gets a bit overlooked because of just HOW MUCH exposure/attention Glee gets. So it’s nice they’re getting recognized here. It’s SUCH a great show…
Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara (along with Community‘s Joel McHale) announced the Primetime Emmy Awards this week. We all know that English ISN’T Sofia’s first language, so it was interesting to see Sofia have to pronounce a lot of these names…
When announcing the Lead Actress in a Drama Series category, Sofia had to pronounce “Mariska Hargitay.” Now, even for us “English as a FIRST language” people, Mariska Hargitay is a TOUGH ONE. I was QUITE interested to see how Sofia tackled that one…
HILARIOUS…Check it out (JUMP TO 4:40 of the video):
