The Modern Family actress and People's Hollywood's Hottest Bachelor, Manganiello, were spotted having brunch Sunday afternoon in New Orleans, where Vergara is filming the comedy Don't Mess With Texas with costar Reese Witherspoon.
A photo was posted on Instagram of Vergara and Manganiello canoodling at a table with a plate of fried chicken. The post has since been deleted.
“The restaurant was full with no tables available when they arrived with no reservation,” a witness told Page Six. “Sofía copped an attitude, and they made room for them.”
A source told Page Six that the 41-year-old actress and Manganiello met at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner this year and were “flirting” and “exchanged numbers.” A bit awkward, perhaps, considering Vergara attended the event with Loeb.
“It is early days, but there is a big mutual attraction,” said another source.
It all seems so clear now. Vergara and Loeb, who had been dating on and off since 2010, split shortly after the DC event, with the actress announcing the news to her fans on WhoSay.
“I love a butt. Sofía Vergara, that’s it. She’s got that Latin thing going. She’s got curves, she’s got a beautiful face, beautiful hair, just gorgeous. And she’s feisty!” he said.
"There was a picture someone snapped at the White House Correspondents' Dinner where they caught me looking at Sofia Vergara's butt," he continued. "When you talk about being manipulated, that's what I'm talking about. It's like a moment of zen. There is nothing in my brain. If only I could meditate that well. I don't go after other people's women. She's got a guy. If she was single, I would be like, poof!"
Manganiello was engaged to actress Audra Marie in 2010 and most recently dated model Bridget Peters for more than a year.
