Sofia Vergara Is Engaged and the Mayan Gods Are PleasedS

After serious journalistic reports came in that Sofia Vergara was wearing a "sparkly ring," we sat up all night, vigilant, waiting to see if she had indeed been proposed to on her Mexican vacation with boyfriend Nick Loeb. (Remember that scene in Secretary when she's sitting at the desk in her wedding gown for days because James Spader told her to and she pees on herself? It was like that.) And it turns out that yes, he got on one knee in front of some Mayan pyramids in Yucatán and asked her to marry him, and Diet Pepsi was had by all. Fortunately, this occurred on her 40th birthday, right down to the wire, mere hours before she (as all single women do on the eve of their 40th birthday) would have immediately shriveled into crone-hood at the stroke of midnight. Phew!

Also, the whole cast of Modern Family was there to see it, and here is an adorable picture of co-star Jesse Tyler "jumping for Sofia!" Let this serve as a reminder to us all that Instagram can be used for the power of good, not just the power of taking pictures of the bourgeois pasta we're about to eat. [Page Six, Instagram]

To everything there is a season and this is clearly not Rielle "I love living in love" Hunter's summer. In fact, we might actually be getting a respite from hearing about John Edwards' vigorous extra-marital deep-dicking due to slow sales of Hunter's confessional What Really Happened (spoiler alert: peen really happened) and the resulting cancellation of her book tour. Her rep says that the tour has not been "cancelled" per se, and that Hunter has "completed her scheduled media requests" and is "still considering requests." Consider this request: Noooooooooooes.
