Sofia Vergara heard all the criticism and claims of sexism during and decided to respond to the haters. Or maybe just the one hater that started it all.

A lot of people were none too pleased with the fact that the Emmys displayed Vergara on a turn table while the President of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences gave a boring monologue about how much they value diversity or whatever. Entertainment Weekly got her take on the matter:

Yet when asked whether the stunt was sexist and demeaning, Vergara shot back: "I think its absolutely the opposite. It means that somebody can be hot and also be funny and make fun of herself. I think it's ridiculous that somebody started this—I know who she was—who has no sense of humor [and should] lighten up a little bit."


First of all, I don't think anyone actually hates on Sofia Vergara for being hot. Second, I can't tell if she is talking about an individual woman who "started this" or if she's talking about a type of woman. Either way, it can't be more ridiculous than putting a woman on a pedestal for viewing pleasure while touting a commitment to diversity. [ EW]

Hayden Panettiere accidentally told the world she's having a baby girl. Last night, while being interviewed by Giuliana Rancic on the Emmy's red carpet, she said, "I can't wait for her to come out—little button!" Rancic immediately verified, "It's a girl?" and only then did Pannettiere truly understand what she had just done. Then she talked about shopping. [People]
