Sofia Vergara, a beloved figure in Hollywood and a star of the hit show Modern Family, is doing well following her split from Joe Manganiello. Her Modern Family co-star, Julie Bowen, has been a source of support and friendship during this time. Fans of the stunning Colombian actress have been eager to know how she’s been faring since the announcement of her divorce.
Vergara and Bowen shared a strong bond, having worked together on Modern Family from its premiere on September 23, 2009, until its conclusion on April 8, 2020. Bowen recently attended the Step Up Inspiration Awards, where she spoke about her enduring friendship with Vergara, vowing to always stand by her side.
Bowen, who stars in Mixtape, confirmed that she’s been in touch with Vergara and that she’s doing well. She highlighted that Vergara, who also stars in Griselda, has always been blessed with a strong support system, including a loving family.
Judging by her social media activity, Vergara, who is also a judge on America’s Got Talent, appears to be enjoying life to the fullest. Her posts include bathroom selfies from her trip to Paris, fun girls’ nights out with Camila Morrone, and nostalgic throwback photos. Bowen believes that Vergara’s Instagram activity is a testament to her positive state of mind.
In a playful reference to Taylor Swift, who recently took a newly divorced friend to a game, Bowen humorously stated that Vergara is doing just fine and doesn’t need Swift to accompany her to a game.
Bowen, who went through a divorce from Scott Phillips in September 2018 after 13 years of marriage, understands the challenges of divorce. She jokingly expressed her wish that Swift had been around to take her to a game during her own divorce.
Vergara and Manganiello: The End of a Chapter
Vergara and Manganiello announced their decision to divorce in a joint statement on Monday, July 17th. They requested respect for their privacy as they navigate this new phase of their lives. Manganiello officially filed for divorce two days later, on July 19th.

Manganiello proposed on Christmas Day the same year, and they got married in a grand ceremony in Palm Beach, Florida, in November 2015. Throughout their marriage, Manganiello had been a stepfather to Vergara’s son, Manolo Gonzalez-Ripoll Vergara. They also co-parented a pet named Bubbles, who is now under Manganiello’s care.
