Modern Family


Modern Family star Sarah Hyland seems to have moved on from her ex Matthew Prokop, after their traumatic break-up last year.

After the split in September, Sarah revealed that Matthew had physically and mentally abused her on numerous occasions, at one point holding her with "a grip so tight that [she] could not breathe or speak." After attempting to cut ties with Matthew, Sarah was eventually forced to file a restraining order against him, to prevent him from being within 100 yards of herself, her house or her dog.

Now though, it looks like Sarah is slowly finding happiness again after pictures were published of her sharing a romantic kiss with a mystery man while out in Hollywood.

The pair exchanged a smooch as Sarah clutched a handful of red roses… presumably a gift from her suitor.

24-year-old Sarah was out for the night in Warwick nightclub when the kiss took place. She was then seen hopping into a taxi with her new beau.

This is the first time Sarah has been seen with another man since her split from Matthew back in September.

We're so happy to see her moving on from what sounds like a very toxic relationship.


When Sarah Hyland split from her long-term boyfriend Matthew Prokop two months ago, her fans were devastated. But she soon revealed that the relationship hadn't been as happy as others had believed. 

The Modern Family actress filed for a restraining order from Matthew back in September, stating that he had continually verbally and physically abused her while they were together, at one point holding her throat with "a grip so tight that [she] could not breath or speak."

Sarah has since been granted a three-year order stipulating that Matthew cannot be within 100 yards of her, her house or her place of work at any time. Now for the first time, the actress has spoken out about her attempts to move on.

In an appearance on The Meredith Vieira Show, the 23-year-old opened up about moving beyond her pain, referencing lines from two of her favourite poets.

"There are two quotes that I want to say," the actress began. "One is a Dylan Thomas poem, ‘Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light,’ which is one of my favourite poems.  It just strikes a chord in me. And also Robert Frost, 'The only way out is through.'"

Although she did not directly reference Matthew when asked about dealing with an abusive relationship, Sarah finished by saying, "People have to go through things in order to become the person they are today, and that's that."

Celebrities took to Twitter last night to express their sadness at the death of actress Elizabeth Pena.

The 55-year-old was best known for her role on Modern Family as Gloria's mother, and also for her parts in Rush Hour, Jacob's Ladder and The Incredibles.

She passed away following a brief illness.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who plays Modern Family's Mitch, paid tribute on behalf of the show's cast and crew: 

The show's co-creator Steve Levitan posted this kind message:

Actresses Eva Longoria and America Ferrera were among the many stars who counted Elizabeth as an influence in their careers:

Elizabeth is survived by her husband and two teenage children.



Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet might be hilarious as Cam and Mitch on Modern Family but they weren't quite so charming recently when they crashed a university party in Kansas!

The actors were at Eric's old college, Kansas State University, to give a talk to students recently. The pair decided to go for a few drinks afterwards… and ended up reliving their glory days! 

Chatting with Conan O'Brien show during the week, Jesse revealed that the two lads stopped by Eric's old fraternity house, Pi Kappa Alpha, at the very respectable time of 2.30am. They found the remains of a wild party and made the executive decision to go exploring further. As you do!

The real fun came when the pair took a peek into Eric's old room… only to find a couple getting busy in the bed! "There was a man in there with his lady friend and they were under the sheets doing naughty, naughty things," Jesse joked to Conan. 

But the bould couple apparently didn't mind too much about being walked in on – all they wanted was a photo wth the two stars. 

"We come into the room and … she's covering herself up with the sheet," said Jesse. "And then she says: "Oh my God! Can we get a picture with you guys?"'

To be honest, we'd probably have done the exact same!



Modern Family star Sofia Vergara may be majorly loved up with True Blood hottie Joe Manganiello but that doesn’t mean she has no time for her ex fiancé anymore!

The actress was spotted hugging and chatting with Nick Loeb, whom she was engaged to for two years until their split this May.

The couple were reportedly seen outside Nicks’ apartment in New York City but thankfully a source has told US Weekly that Joe has nothing to worry about: “There wasn’t anything romantic about their meeting nor was it a secret that they met up.”

It sounds like Sofia and Nick are now in a place where they can be good friends, which is always a good thing!



Sarah Hyland's recent break-up after a five year relationship came as a shock to fans, but the split was far messier than anyone realised.

The Modern Family actress has now taken out a temporary restraining order against her ex-boyfriend Matthew Prokop, claiming that he physically and verbally abused her during their relationship, and threatened her when she tried to end things.

In her statement, 23-year-old Sarah noted that during one particular argument, Matthew held her up against a car and verbally abused her while choking her. "His grip was so tight that I could not breathe or speak," she said. "I was scared and in fear for my life."

The actress also revealed that after the break up, Matthew relentlessly bombarded her with "vile, threatening and emotionally disturbing texts and voice mails including his own suicide threats."

The temporary order, which Sarah wants extended, means that Matthew must stay at least 100 feet away from her at all times, and also from her dog Barkley, who lives with Sarah in the Los Angeles home that the couple once shared. Sarah claims that Matthew threatened the safety of the dog, saying that she would never see him again.

It seems like the young starlet has a great support network of friends at least – she reportedly asked her Modern Family co-star Julie Bowen to be present when she told Matthew that things were over, to help "peacefully end the relationship". 

According to Sarah's statement, Matthew flew into a rage when he realised Julie was in the house and threatened to burn it down, at which point Julie advised Sarah to leave.

Matthew completed a stint in rehab after the break-up, but the director of the facility reportedly advised Sarah to secure a restraining order against him, due to his negative attitude towards her and his unstable mental state.

Matthew has yet to make any public comment, and has also remained quiet on social media. His last post on Twitter, just days after the break-up, reads "Here comes that sun again… Means another day without you my friend."



Though rumours that Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello had been circulating, nothing was quite confirmed – until now!

The couple were snapped enjoying Sofia’s birthday recently, and looked very cosy indeed.

The Modern Family star only recently split from her fiancé, Nick Loeb, but it looks as if she has found someone new in Joe.

Um, where’s our True Blood hottie after a break-up?!



Is this a relationship made in Hollywood heaven? We think so!

It has been revealed that True Blood hottie, Joe Manganiello, is dating none other than Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara!

Sources say the relationship is in the very early stages and that Joe has reportedly been mad about the actress for years, how cute!

Could this be the hottest couple EVER?!

Sofia Vergara has split from her fiancé Nick Loeb.

The Modern Family actress has confirmed she and Nick – who got engaged in 2012 – have called time on their relationship after they struggled to balance their professional and personal lives together.

Writing on her WhoSay profile earlier, she revealed, ”Not that anyone should care, but in order to not give the press the chance to invent crazy and hurtful drama, I prefer to tell my fans personally that Nick and I have decided to be apart.

”We have been having too many problems with figuring out how to spend time together and because of my work and now his, it’s been getting worse and worse, not fun anymore.

”We are still very close but we believe is the best thing for us right now. ”

The 41-year-old actress – who has a 21-year-old son, Manolo from her first marriage to Joe Gonzalez – spoke in February when the couple were planning their wedding, and admitted at the time they had nothing set in stone.

Such a shame.




Modern Family star, Ariel Winter showed off her stunning new hair colour – and we are obsessed with it!

The actress first dyed her hair back in March but it seems she has now gone an even deeper shade.

Ariel joked that she was inspired by her namesake character in The Little Mermaid.

The hair colour makes a big difference to the actress’ usual hair colour which is a deep brunette.

We hope she keeps it, it’s simply stunning!

The cast of Modern Family are known to be close and are often snapped in one another’s Instgram photos.

But Sarah Hyland got more than she bargained for when she took a video of co-star, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, lip-syncing to Idina Menzel’s ‘Defying Gravity’.

Jesse gets really into it as his make-up is being prepared for shooting the show, he actually pushes his make-up artist out of the way and performs a little dance.

We love it!
