It’s funny how fast a chisme story can spread, even if it isn’t entirely true. This past weekend, rumors ran rampant about Sofia Vergara missing the Academy Awards because of a severe illness. And the picture she posted of herself sick in bed certainly fueled the fire.
Gossip bloggers were using terms like “virus” and “mystery illness” to describe her condition, but Vergara quickly shot them down. It seems the Modern Family star simply had a case of the flu.
“Watching the Oscars at home so I dont give everyone the flu haha!” she jokingly Tweeted.
Sofia fans across the globe were clearly disappointed by her no-show. But we imagine it wasn’t because they wanted to see her on the red carpet. Knowing Vergara’s awards show rep, it was probably because she missed the after parties!
