WHY CHARO HATES SOFIA VERGARA’S GUTS!
THERE’s a red-hot war of words erupting between sexy “Modern Family” star Sofia Vergara and original Latin bombshell Charo.
The Spanish spitfire recently slammed Sofia, blasting her performance on the Emmy-winning show, calling her a phony, a Lucille Ball wannabe and “Charo with diarrhea”!
“Charo says that many people in Spanish-speaking countries think Sofia’s annoying accent is not only obviously fake, but it’s insulting and degrading,” said a source. “She later explained that she was only saying out loud what everyone in Latin America has been thinking.
“Meanwhike, Sofia says Charo needs to get a life and stop being so jealous of other Latinas who have successful careers.”
Charo, 62, is an accomplished actress and musician who’s perhaps best-known for her sexy wiggle, her “cuchi-cuchi” catchphrase, and her appearances on “The Love Boat.” Ironically, Sofia, 41, grew up watching Charo on TV and was a big fan – but that didn’t stop her from responding to the verbal attack.
“Of course she doesn’t like it,” said Sofia, who plays Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on the hit ABC sitcom. “No one likes being compared with someone else, especially someone younger.”
Despite the feud, Sofia has high hopes that they’ll be able to put it behind them.
“She has been telling friends that she forgives Charo and hopes that the feeling is mutual,” added the source. “In fact, she thinks it would be a blast if the ‘Modern Family’ producers cast Charo as one of her wacky Colombian relatives on the show – an elderly family member, of course!”
