We’ve been imaginary BFFs with Sofía Vergara ever since she brought her own snacks to the Emmys. Or was it the time she ate potato chips in a wedding dress? Or when she documented her mammogram on Insta?
Anyway, the point is, we’re officially obsessed with the Modern Family actress and her husband, Joe Manganiello. But the hunky Magic Mike actor revealed on Conan last night that Vergara had to pass a test before she officially got his seal of approval, and we were all ears. (Also, why weren’t we given a chance to pass this test? So unfair.)
In order to win his heart, Manganiello told O’Brien that he took Vergara and his mom to iconic Pittsburgh sandwich shop Primanti Brothers for one of their giant “Almost Famous” sandwiches, served on thick Italian bread and piled high with meat, coleslaw and french fries, then smothered in hot sauce. “Listen, I’m gonna take you here,” Manganiello said he told Vergara. “You gotta eat it. You can’t look at it, you have to eat it. This is my reputation on the line.” OK, no pressure or anything...
Under the watchful eyes of her future mother-in-law and husband, Vergara passed with flying colors. “She picked up the sandwich and took the first bite...then she took another, and another and another. She downed the sandwich in 60 seconds,” he recalled as he pumped his fist in the air. From that moment on, he knew it was love.
Brava, Sofía. We knew you could do it.
