Modern Family

Modern Family star Sarah Hyland has just announced her engagement to boyfriend of two years Wells Adams.

The 28-year-old TV star posted photos to her Instagram account of the romantic proposal by her 35-year-old The Bachelorette boyfriend.

The proposal took place on a gorgeous beach, and luckily someone managed to capture the moment when Wells got down on one knee.

The delighted actress captioned the post: "That can't eat, can't sleep, reach for the stars, over the fence, world series kind of stuff."

Wells tweeted a video of the aftermath of his proposal, with himself and Sarah embracing after she said yes. Wells captioned the post: "I'll be Johnny, you be June. But forever."

The Johnny Cash reference seemed to go down well, with a host of celebrity pals rushing to congratulate the pair. 

Vanessa Hudgens wrote: "So freaking adorable," on the post by Sarah, clearly over the moon for her friend and her fiancé.

Nick Jonas added "Congrats," while Lily Collins wrote: "Ahhhhhh congratulations! So excited for you xxx."

Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale wrote; "Congrats you two!" while actress Debra Messing was quick to proclaim that they'll make gorgeous babies…

Jaime King also commented: "YES!!!! YES!!!! Congratulations love bug!!! We are SO happy for you both! #loveisintheair"

Sarah plays Haley Dunphy on the long-running sitcom Modern Family, rising to fame after gaining the role of the moody teenager. 

 She has since starred in films including Scary Movie 5, Vampire Academy and Date And Switch, while Wells Adams appeared in season 12 of US reality show The Bachelorette.

It's time to bid farewell to one of TV's most beloved families: The Dunphys.

ABC is confirming their goodbye to Phil, Claire, Jay, Gloria, Alex, Haley, Luke, Mitchell, Cameron and Manny forever, and we're devastated.

Karey Burke, president of ABC Entertainment, said in a statement at the 2019 Television Critics Association press tour that season 11 will be Modern Family's last hurrah.

"Co-creators Christopher Lloyd and Steven Levitan have created one of the most seminal and iconic comedies in television history", Burke announced.

"In its final season, there will be more milestone events that anyone who has been a fan of the series won't want to miss." The show has always been a strong ratings player for the network, but have decreased slowly over the years.

Modern Family contracts were apparently only up until season 10, which lead many to believe that the show would finish after that outing.

Deadline has reported that all cast members would be happy to continue with the show, as were Modern Family's producers and ABC.

However, co-creator Christopher Lloyd recently told E! News that working on season 10 and changing things up by including a death and surprise pregnancy inspired the writers to keep going.

"The way this season was developed, there's a little bit more in the way of kind of real-life events than what you've seen in the past," Lloyd said, following Haley's pregnancy announcement.

"But you know, in life, that happens where nothing at all particularly tumultuous happens, and then four things happen in the span of a couple of months."

A deal for another season of Modern Family was made easier due to the impending Disney acquisition of the series' studio, 20th Century Fox TV. Maybe spin-offs will be in the works?


What should have been an amazing 21st birthday celebration for Modern Family actress turned sour, when body-shaming trolls attacked her weight-loss.

The gorgeous actress posted a number of photos from her birthday bash, alongside her beloved boyfriend Levi Meaden, and the comments quickly became focused on her physique.

The images show Winter wearing a plaid jumpsuit, showing off her beautiful body, but trolls claimed her slimmer figure was because of plastic surgery.

She captioned the post: "When you see the zankou chicken on the left turn right, and then you’ll be in Marina Del RAH. Happy 21st. Love you always, I couldn’t ask for a better day."

Comments have since been disabled on the series of snaps, after horrible social media users targeted her with hate. One said; "You’re losing your thick", referencing her famously curvy body.

"Healthier? She got work done to her face. She looked 'healthier' before,” one person wrote.

“Nothing wrong with being honest and telling her we liked her better before 'the change' she was so beautiful before she started chopping up her body and if me saying so helps one girl out there to feel beautiful who's thinking of surgery then its worth it,” another person added.

The judgemental, harsh words prompted a response from Ariel herself.

“I appreciate you wanting to help girls love themselves the way they are, but you are also kind of cutting me down,” she wrote. 

“I also didn’t get plastic surgery. That is also not being supportive of women if you’re just assuming something about the way they look," she added. She's had to fight back the haters multiple times before:

She tweeted a few months ago: "My friend sent me the funniest article that's apparently in OK Magazine about my 'super strict diet' and how I only go out to eat if it's healthy food and I don't allow sugar in the house…I eat every carbohydrate possible…"

"I make chocolate chip cookies every week," she added. YES GURL.

Winter has long been the subject of criticism online, especially since her breast reduction surgery at the age of 17 and her choice of fashion.


A post shared by ARIEL WINTER (@arielwinter) on

Earlier in January, somebody even suggested that she binges on drugs to lose weight; "Not half as bad as all the coke.meth she uses. She literally dropped 30 ponds." After correcting her spelling of pounds (thank God), Winter fired back.

“Yup… I dropped 30 bodies of water so fast…” she said. ”And yes!! My psychiatrist switched me from my previous antidepressant that didn’t work and made me gain weight, to coke/meth!! 

Her body shouldn't be attacked by random online users hiding behind a keyboard. Keep doing what you're doing Ariel, you're slaying the game and snatching wigs left, right and centre.


A 2010 clip of Gordon Ramsay and Sofia Vergara on the Jay Leno show has gone viral this week, purely because of how damn UNCOMFORTABLE it makes everyone feel.

Twitter users were quick to brand the infamous TV chef's behaviour as beyond inappropriate, especially in the #MeToo era where women are taking a stand against treatment such as this.

The interview shows Ramsay, then 52, appearing alongside the Colombian actress in an interview, where he clearly makes her feel incredibly objectified and upset with his sexist remarks and groping.

His comments during the clip aimed at the actress have not been received well, at one stage Vergara is talking to Leno and remarks; “I never scream like that in real life.”

She was presumably referring to the renowned shouts of her Modern Family character, but Ramsay is quick to respond with;“Only in the bedroom.”

Let's remember, this is part of Vergara's JOB. In an employment environment, he repeatedly interrupts her and makes her feel sexualised when she is trying to do her actual job.

He even moves chairs to essentially sit on Vergara without her permission, and he touches her upper thigh and tries to smack her. She tells him; "No, no. No touching!"

She begins speaking in Spanish at the audience, telling them "This man doesn't respect me." Understandably, she is uncomfortable and angry, and Leno did absolutely nothing to intervene.

He asks the actress and model; “Have you had a whole wedge in your mouth at any one time?” She cannot even reply as she is too stunned.

"Sofia Vergara didn’t deserve to be treated like this," one Twitter user wrote, retweeting the footage. "This is very very uncomfortable." Of course, people are MAD as hell, deservedly so.

Jay Leno is equally chauvinistic, asking her how much WEIGHT she gained while away on a trip, which she refuses to answer.

She is sexualised throughout the entire interview, while at work essentially, and is subjected to sexist and racist harassment.

Gordon Ramsay even tells her to change her son Manolo's name,to which she replies stone-faced "Can I what?"

The whole thing is a damn joke. Gordon, you're cancelled. Jay Leno, you're cancelled. Everyone go and smash the patriarchy and lift up Sofia.


Sarah Hyland has gone through a tough health battle.

However, it looks as if the Modern Family actress is on the mend.

The 28-year-old had a kidney transplant and gave an update on her recovery.


A post shared by Sarah Hyland (@sarahhyland) on

Sarah previously opened up about the guilt she felt when her Dad gave her a kidney and it failed.

This led to the actress receiving a second kidney, but this time it was donated from her brother.

Thankfully, it looks as if the second operation was a success.


A post shared by Sarah Hyland (@sarahhyland) on

Sarah told Entertainment Tonight that she is "doing really, really well."  

The actress was recently soaking up the Mexican sun and detailed the joy of being able to safely fly again.

“The good thing about being stable, health-wise, and having an amazing significant other is that now I’m able to travel more," she explained.


A post shared by Sarah Hyland (@sarahhyland) on

“The last time I took a vacation before this year I was 24," continued to say.

"I just turned 28, so I’ve just been either working on my health or working nonstop, so it’s really good to be able to do something like that now,” she added.

Bachelor star, Wells Adams, has been Sarah's beau for just over a year and they looked picture-perfect in their Mexican getaway.

We are delighted to hear that Sarah's recovery is going so well. 


Sarah Hyland has left social media following the bullying she experienced online in the aftermath of her cousin's tragic death.

Her 14-year-old relative lost her life in a heart-breaking car accident over the weekend.

The actress uploaded a Go Fund Me page to her Twitter, stating that a man named Jeffrey Eggerling was the driver who hit her uncle's car, and he tried to run from the scene.

"Jeffrey Eggerling is a murderer. May he rot in hell."

She also asked if her fans could donate to the page to help pay for funeral expenses of her 14-year-old cousin, which backfired.

The backlash came when Twitter users angrily stated that she could afford to pay for the funeral from her own salary, and that there was no need to ask others to contribute.

In a series of tweets, the Modern Family star explained the sense of grief and pain which her cousin's death brought, which was exacerbated by online trolls;

She continued; saying "your horrible negative ignorant words have broken me. Happy? Staying offline for a while."

She presumably has contractual obligations to promote her TV show, so the exception to her social media hiatus is for this purpose only.

Some Twitter users declared that because her net worth is roughly $9 million, she should pay for the funeral herself rather than asking her fans for money which they may not have;

Others claimed that we don't actually know what her assets are, and presumably she has already contributed to the funeral costs, which is no one's business.

Many fans rallied behind her during this tough time, and we agree that when someone is mourning a great loss, attacking their net worth is just a low blow.

We hope she can get through this difficult period in her life, and offer condolences for her cousin's death. 



At just 20 years old, Jackson Odell, was sadly found dead at his home in California.

The actor and musician, best known for his roles in the Goldbergs and Modern Family, was found unresponsive at his home in Tarzana, California on Friday, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner's Office has confirmed to People

His family took to Twitter to pay tribute to the young actor.

"The Odell family has lost our beloved son and brother, Jackson Odell, on Friday," they wrote on Twitter.

"He will always be a shining light and a brilliant, loving and talented soul. He had so much more to share. Our family will always carry that truth forward. Our wish is that the rest of the world who knew and loved him does as well.

"We are now going to try to make sense of our immeasurable loss privately. We will not be making anymore statements."

No cause of death has yet been revealed but reports say that this is being investigated. 

'Modern Family' actress Ariel Winter also spoke of the untimely death of her co-star and friend, and said she has been left "devastated" by his passing, whom she had known since childhood. 

"Devastated to hear about the passing of Jackson Odell. I knew Jackson since we were 12 years old and he even appeared in an episode of 'Modern Family,'" she wrote on Instagram. 

"We didn't talk much as we entered into our high school years, but I'm glad I got to spend time with him before his end. 

"Very hard for me to hear about anyone passing away, but someone so young really saddens me. Sending love to his family and friends."

Our thoughts are with Jackson's family and friends at this sad time.  


Earlier this year, Modern Family fans were delighted by the news that the hit sitcom had been given the go-ahead for two more series – however, it looks like that's all we'll we getting.

That's right, prepare to say goodbye to Phil's epic one liners and Manny's pockets of wisdom as the heart-warming comedy looks sets to end with the show's creators hinting that season 10 will be the last.

The beloved ABC show first hit our screens back in September 2009, and while the creator's original intention was to keep the show on air for as long as possible, they have now revealed that they are begining to play around with ideas as to how the story will come to an end.

Speaking to Deadline, co-creator Steve Levitan said: “Our original goal was to just stay on the air.”

“But after awhile we thought we may be in control [of] our own fate, and 10 sounded like a nice round number.”

When asked how the Modern Family will end, he said: "We haven’t had that exact conversation yet how we want to end the show episode-wise, those discussions will start in earnest as the writers start mapping out the second part of the current ninth season. We’ve talked about areas that we want to go and tonally what we want to do."

It's not yet clear how exactly the Emmy award winning series will conclude but creators have admitted that they want to finish the way they began – with a big family event.



Since its launch in 2009, Modern Family has been lauded for its treatment of adoption,  same-sex couples, and multi-cultural families.

And in keeping with the trend, the makers of the hit ABC show have confirmed that they are thrilled to feature the first openly transgender child actor on television in their next episode.

Taking to Instagram last night, the episode's director, Ryan Case, shared a snap of herself with the budding star, and could barely contain her delight at having him on set.

"This is Jackson Millarker. He's 8 years old, from Atlanta, and just happens to be transgender," Ryan wrote alongside her snap.

"He plays Lily's friend Tom in this week's Modern Family and he's wonderful," she continued. "One of the many reasons I love being a part of this show."

While there were some cruel remarks, the vast majority of Instagram users were pumped for Jackson, with one writing: "Awesome! So glad we are finally getting to a place where young ones are feeling safe enough to be vocal and express themselves how they choose to."

"Of course there will always be those few who speak against it… ahem…. a few of the above comments…. but it will take small steps to erase the ignorance of many," she continued.

"Cheers to you Jackson and to taking small steps in the right direction!"

Jackson will feature in the show's latest episode 'A Stereotypical Day'.


Ah, the lives of the rich and famous.

Those guys and gals have a person for every little thing – umbrella-holding, lace-tying and, if Ariel Winter's latest Instagram upload is anything to go by, bum-decorating.

Taking to the social media site last night, the Modern Family actress shared a shot of herself having her bum… well… tended to by a young man who probably can't believe his luck.

"BUTT really, don't miss a spot," she captioned the shot alongside the words 'secret shoot' and 'embrace your curves'.


BUTT really, don't miss a spot @kipzachary @davinaadjani #secretshoot #embraceyourcurves

Her followers, unsurprisingly, didn't know what to make of the snap, with some quick to wheel out the puns and others only dying to replace the guy in question.

"Now that's an interesting job. Did he have to start at the bottom and work his way up?" wrote one while another added: "What do I have to do to get his job?"


2 million!!! Wow! I can't believe it…love you guys so much #thankyou #love

Thankfully for Ariel, many of her followers focussed on the main aim of the secret shoot, with one writing: "So happy to see a young lady out there who promotes a healthy body image. Good on you Ariel!"

No but seriously, what exactly IS he doing down there?



While most people try to keep their relationship drama away from prying eyes, Ariel Winter decided to take the opposite approach when she revealed her newfound single status over the weekend.

Following weeks of speculation, the Modern Family star used multiple forms of social media to confirm she and on-off boyfriend Laurent Gaudette have officially ended their two year relationship.

Using a Kim Kardashian gif captioned “I’m like dropping hints that I’m single”, the actress wrote on Twitter: “When you’re surprised that people just haven’t got it yet…”


She then posted a picture of her tweet to Instagram captioned “Hi there press people” – obviously suggesting the media had yet to cop her newly single status.

According to the Daily Mail, rumours of a break-up began to circulate after Ariel and Laurent unfollowed each other on social media and the teen star attended her prom alone.

In December Ariel also used a gif to announce she had split with Laurent, just two months after celebrating their two-year anniversary.



 Hi there press people!!!!!!

But by March the pair were definitely back on and just two months ago they attended Coachella as an item.

Ariel – who recently celebrated her high school graduation with a controversial pic – doesn’t seem to be too upset over her breakup as she took to Instagram yesterday to celebrate reaching 2 million followers with a picture of her in a bikini driving a boat.

We could certainly think of worse ways to get over a breakup.



Earlier this week Modern Family star Ariel Winter posted a picture from her high school graduation party to Instagram which garnered a whole host of reactions online – mainly because of her outfit of choice.

In the pic the teen star can be seen wearing a nude coloured bandage dress with a sizeable cut-out beneath her boobs, in a clear nod to the new underboob trend.

The post received a whole lot of abuse but thankfully this doesn’t seem to bother Ariel who took to Twitter last night to tell her haters where to go.


Couldn't be more grateful to @shanelle_gray & @davidbarrygray for throwing me the most amazing graduation party ever last night…the amount of love and support they've shown me for the past four years has been life changing. My sister is my absolute best friend and my everything… Thank you so much. I couldn't be luckier or more grateful. I was in awe last night and I still am that you guys love me that much to do all of that for me…I never would be where I am today without you two…you guys saved me and taught me to be the person I am today. Dad…I love you!!! Thank you for always being there to support and love me as well and always put a smile on my face no matter what :). I'm so grateful for the bond we now share. Alenah the song you put together with Shanelle and recorded for me was one of the most special gifts I've ever received. I'm still tearing up thinking about it.

She wrote: “Dear sorry body-shamers, I looked HOT in that dress.  And if you hate it, don’t buy it.  But please get a hobby.  XOXO Ariel #EmbraceYourBody.”

The post was quickly followed by another tweet, this time with a picture of the actress posing in a mirror attached.

It was captioned: “Embrace all that you are.  Don’t let those outside voices become your inner voice.”

Again she chose body positive tags: #mychoice #loveyourcurves.

Ariel underwent breast reduction surgery earlier this year after suffering years of back pain.

At the time she told Glamour magazine she’s feeling better about herself than ever before and loves the freedom she has to dress however she wants.

And by the looks of those tweets, she’s not going to let anyone stop her from doing just that.
