 January 16, 2024

Fans of actress and "America’s Got Talent" judge Sofía Vergara were shocked last year to learn that she had split from her husband Joe Manganiello.

During an interview this past weekend with "CBS Sunday Morning," Vergara opened up about how she dealt with going through a public divorce. 

Actress "surprised" by "respectful" media treatment

"You’re out there [in the public eye] and people know that's part of being a celebrity," People magazine quoted the actress as saying.

"I knew it was gonna happen. You can’t hide those things," she continued before adding that the media's treatment of her circumstances "wasn't bad."

"I think, you know, I have to say the press was very respectful and very nice. And I thought that they were gonna invent more things, and you know how it usually is," Vergara acknowledged.

"I was surprised and, you know, they, they kind of just said what it was and, and that was it," the actress went on to stress.

Manganiello cited "irreconcilable differences" as reason for divorce

People reported in July of 2023 that Vergara and Manganiello had issued a joint statement which announced the conclusion of their 7-year marriage.

"We have made the difficult decision to divorce," the couple said. "As two people that love and care for one another very much, we politely ask for respect for our privacy at this time as we navigate this new phase of our lives."

The magazine noted that Manganiello filed for divorce on grounds of "irreconcilable differences" and cited July 2 as the day their separation began.

Meanwhile, Vergara explained to "CBS Sunday Morning" that she has been focused on "moving on" and is pursuing a variety of projects, including the Netflix limited series "Griselda."
