I love Sofia Vergara because she's honest and just bawdy enough to seem like she'd be a really fun bar-hopping partner. But, in spite of her earthy coolness, the Modern Family actress hasn't been so lucky in love. Sofia recently split from her fiance Nick Loeb, with whom she's had a relationship for 4 years.
This isn't the first time she and the businessman called it quits. Sofia and Nick actually broke up two years ago, then got engaged almost immediately after reconciling. But this time around it seems like it's really over. How do we know? Well, Sofia herself has decided to divulge all the break-up details before anyone in the media had a chance to run with the story.
It isn't every day that a celeb takes to her Twitter or WhoSay account and provides a brutally honest announcement about her love life or breakup. But Sofia figured people would talk no matter what when they found out the news, and that it would be better if they heard it from her. This was her personal message to fans:
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, its been getting worse and worse. Not fun anymore. We are still very close but we believe it's the best thing for us right now.
Sounds like a perfectly logical reason to call it quits. I mean, it's sad that work commitments got in the way of their relationship and, yeah sure, in a perfect and pure world, love would be the most important thing in life. But the truth is: Sofia is getting quite a few film offers these days, and why shouldn't she capitalize on that fame? When she finds the right guy for her, I'm sure both partners will bend over backwards to make it work, despite how busy they are.
Now there's the little question of whether Sofia needed to explain herself or if this was TMI. As much as I'd like to say celebs should keep their private lives private, we all know that people -- hmm..maybe even some of us who write for The Stir..cough, cough -- are going to speculate about why the couple called it quits. Better that she stripped their breakup of all mystery and just told us like it is. There's very little left to gossip about after most details have been revealed.
Do you think Sofia made a good choice telling everyone about her breakup before it got out in the press?
