Got nepotism? Show biz is full of it and many, many other things including over inflated egos. In today’s installment of ungrateful much, little known actress not Sophia Sandra Vergara recently made news when deciding and broadcasting that N. Mex, specifically ABQ was not up to her high standards (of rampant alcohol consumption).
Uh, wrong, wrong and wrong dummy. Twin Peaks is not a strip club it’s a restaurant chain, NM has more drink to offer than we know what to do with, and Albuquerque spans farther than the three block length you in your all knowing ways chose to slam.
‘Not Sophia’ has obviously yet to learn the Scoville Scale to New Mexico (see: six degrees to Kevin Bacon) because in her lack of gratitude for being a working actress she also managed to diss the hometown of one of her sister’s co-stars. Um, lil bully.
Get the full story here from KOB-TV and see the entire talk show appearance where Vergara pokes at the Q here.
Step to the back of the line b-rate. Bigger, far more recognizable stars have perpetrated worse digs against our beloved Nuevo México. Take a cue from ABQ friendly a-lister and star of the movie you were here filming and earning money for…the famously crass, heartthrob and actual celebrity – Irishman Colin Farrell, who had no trouble getting his anything on while in the Q.
Finally instead of letting “what’s-her-name’s” quotes lead the parade today, check the bigger digs, here, here, here and here. But I have to hand the Quote of the Day award to:
“I would not know that actress if i fell over her. Albuquerque rocks, she can go and DO ONE as we say in England!” – NM Actor by way of the UK
Update: More delusions from Vergara on how her sister’s fame has NOT helped her ~career and best of all a rationalization on why Colin Farrell DID NOT go for her on location here as told to the LatinoVoices edition of the Huffington Post…(thanks Cheryl)
Tonight while you’re watching Modern Family, washing down your binge-sized serving of McDonald’s with red wine (oh wait, that’s me), NM’s Own Jessie Tyler Ferguson is in the Q…
As you can see below (depending how far into your box of wine you are), Jesse Tyler is in town to attend a local PFLAG meeting with his dad, aww.
No word yet if JTF will make his way N. to make a showing at tomorrow’s Roundhouse presentation of the Bill to Kill NM Film…I’m sure the Albuquerque Children’s Theater prodigy could lend a lot to what will hopefully be a productive conversation of all the NM Film Industry brings to the state, such as inspiring and affording opportunity to young people who will grow and go out into the world making us all proud to call them New Mexican!
Friends of equality and human rights, you deserve to know that your candidates for Governor of New Mexico stand very divided on this as well as most other important issues:
“I have fought to eliminate discrimination of any kind throughout my career and I support the domestic-partnership bill,” – Diane Denish
“I would not sign the domestic partnership bill. It is unnecessary and ill-advised…Rushing this bill through the Legislature demonstrates that the Richardson/Denish administration has its priorities misplaced,”
- Susana Martinez
