Sofia Vergara 'Almost Had a Heart Attack' When Her Emmys Dress Split

Sofia Vergara‘s, uh, ‘cheeky’ Tweet certainly went viral following Sunday night’s Emmy Awards, but the actress didn’t find her wardrobe malfunction very amusing.

“The picture was taken by my boyfriend [Nick Loeb] to tell me how bad [the split] was, because I wouldn’t understand how bad it was and I kept walking all over the event,” Vergara told reporters in New York on Thursday while promoting her Kmart collection. “So he was like, ‘You have to stop! Let me show you what is going on in the back [of your dress].’”

After seeing the photo, “I almost had a heart attack,” the Modern Family star said. “And then I wanted to get it fixed very fast because I wanted to be part of the celebration of receiving [Modern Family's outstanding comedy series] Emmy on stage.”

The actress was whisked away “downstairs somewhere backstage,” she recalled, where “two women … sewed me back in without even taking the dress off because we didn’t have enough time.” Luckily, they fixed the sea green Zuhair Murad creation quickly, and Vergara was able to join her castmates on stage for their big moment.

The source of the tear is still a mystery to the star; she insisted she was sitting for most of the telecast. But now she looks back on the moment with a grin. “It was like a funny joke,” she said of the photo. “We were laughing at it.”

This seems to happen to her a lot. It seems like this is the third time or so. Maybe she should go for a different look?

I’m suprised she cared at all given that’s she’s recently posed nude and showed it all off. Tramp is what she is.

Some of you have no clue what you are talking about and need to get out more. Tramp? Tart? REALLY?! Please, do us all a favor and if you don’t have anything nice to say, keep silence, and look in the mirror from time to time.

The problem with that woman is her brand is about showing her breats, derriere and bragging about it all day long. That’s fine but in ten years wen she’s 50, she won’t be able to play that card and because she was not able to show signs of intelligence, she will get caught by her own game.

wow how much did she pay for that dress its super pretty but that looks so expensive
