She has just been named the highest paid actress on US tv with an estimated annual haul of $30m over the last 12 months. As well as her substantial salary earned playing the part of ditzy Gloria in Modern Family Sofia also earns large sums from her lucrative endorsement deals with companies such as Kmart and Diet Pepsi.
The 41-year old is known as a clever businesswoman despite her rather dumb image on tv and says that she likes to make the most of the fact that people expect her to be something of a ‘bimbo’ like Gloria.
Talking to Glam Belleza Latina the model and actress said that she actually saves and invests the majority of her earnings. She said to the magazine ‘I’m not ashamed to say I love making money.’
The bad news for Sofia this week appears to be that her relationship with fiancé Nick Loeb looks to be on the skids. One reason is also linked to cash as the businessman is said to be less than impressed at the amount of support he has received from Sofia for his Onion Crunch, a food topping made from crispy fried onions.
It is not believed to be the first time the pair have fallen out over the product as Sofia is alleged to have stopped Nick from trying to smuggle in a bottle of Onion Crunch into the White House when the cast of Modern Family was invited to meet President Obama.
Speaking to InTouch Weekly a source close to the actress has said that the businessman was not with Sofia for the recent Thanksgiving celebrations. ‘The fact that Nick wasn’t with her family on Thanksgiving speaks volumes.’
It is not the first time that word has surfaced of trouble between Sofia and the man the New York Times referred to as ‘Mr Condiment’ as they had a rather public row whilst on holiday together in The Hamptons this summer.
We are not sure what is going on at the moment though as after some time without a mention of Loeb on any of her social media posts Sofia posted a photo on Twitter of them both at a New York Giants game this weekend with the caption: ‘Sunday fun at the @Giants game with @DietPepsi!!,’
To further add to the confusion Sofia was seen without her engagement ring at a meal in West Hollywood with some friends last month.
One thing is for sure if this is the end of the line for the relationship Sofia will have no shortage of men queueing up for a date. The busty actress is said to be one of the main reasons behind the popularity of Modern Family and she has a strong fanbase in the US,and here in the UK as well as in South America.
