13 Times Sofia Vergara Was Basically The Best Part Of “Modern Family”

“Modern Family” has graced our screens for 100 years (since 2009), making it one helluva long-running and successful show. And while all the characters are great in their own right, I have to be real for a minute: Gloria is, hands down, the best character on the show.

Let me break it down for you. Here are 13 reasons why she runs that ish:

1. She has no time for people who can’t get over her accent.

Girl, preach! The sass is alive and well in this moment, and specifically directed at her husband, Jay, which I kind of love. Get with the accent or get out, buddy!

2. Her honesty is the best.

Life is too short to be coy, so Gloria’s honesty about her thoughts and life in general is much needed.

3. She defends her home with such passion!

DON’T YOU DARE PUT AN EGG ON HER HOUSE, EVER. She won’t just kill YOU, she’ll kill what you love, which is honestly so badass and horrifying. Hard relate.

4. She’s #humble and #modest.

Hey, when you’ve got it, you’ve got it.

5. She’s not afraid to be totally unchill.

Manny’s face in the background says it all.

6. She defends herself when people try to tell her she has a temper.

7. She’s totally aware of her own flaws.

No need to spend tons of money on therapy. Gloria’s got it figured out.

8. She’s competitive. In an, uh. Healthy way.

There’s nothing wrong with being a little… INTENSE. And if Gloria is anything, she’s intense.

9. She is truly empathetic.

Just call her a modern-day Mother Teresa.

10. She totally owns being a strong, sexual woman.

It’s refreshing to see a woman on TV who isn’t demonized for the fact that, hey, she likes sex.

11. She really and truly loves her family.

It doesn’t matter whether we’re talking about her son Manny or her step-granddaughters, Gloria is all about family.

12. She can be endearingly awkward.

You do you, Gloria.

13. She gets the struggle of being a Latina.

Honestly, this is incredibly moving and hits right in the heart. Amen, sister. Amen.

Gloria, we’ll love you forever. Never change, girl.

Netflix’s ‘Vampires vs. The Bronx’ Is Your New Quarantine Binge That Hilarious Roasts Gentrifiers

Netflix’s ‘Vampires vs. The Bronx’ Is Your New Quarantine Binge That Hilarious Roasts Gentrifiers

Vampires vs. The Bronx

Over the weekend, to kick off the start of October, streamers unleashed a whole new slate of movies and series to binge while in isolation. To celebrate the Halloween season, most of the films and series are creep-related, drawing from some of our greatest everyday fears as All Hallows’ Eve content is often wont to do.

Using one of the scariest modern-day realities, Netflix’s newest film Vampires vs. The Bronx digs into one of the world’s scariest concepts: gentrification!

Ahh!!

Netflix’s newest movie, Vampires vs. The Bronx, follows three teenage boys fighting to save their neighborhood from bloodsucking gentrifiers.

The horror comedy film was written and directed by “Saturday Night Live” film segment director Osmany Rodriguez. You might know the director from his work on hysterical shorts for SNL including 2018’s “Complicit” which starred Scarlett Johansson as Ivanka Trump. Rodriguez also wrote the series’ faux Levi’s Woke commercial which featured Ryan Gosling, Pete Davidson, Leslie Jones, and Kenan Thompson.

According to Deadline, “Vampires vs. The Bronx” watches as “gentrification from an unlikely and deadly source creeps into the Bronx, a group of teenage friends rally to save the beloved local bodega and fight against a supernatural force intent on taking over their home at all costs.”

The new film takes audiences into the treasures of a neighborhood like The Bronx (like local bodegas and block parties) while introducing its worst nightmares (rocketing real estate prices, kale, and strange new business concepts).

So far, the film which was released on Oct. 2, has received rave reviews.

Speaking about the new Netflix pic, film reviewer RogerEbert.com describes the film as an observation of gentrification “for what it is—a form of white supremacy—and makes it an unmistakable evil, in which the pale monsters try to demoralize the residents by referring to the Bronx as ‘somewhere where no one cares when people disappear.'”

The best part? The new horror-comedy blasts us with all of the Latinidad.

With references to Sammy Sosa, characters who make up the full spectrum of U.S. Latin Americans (including Afro-Latino, and Haitian) this one seems like a classic in the making!

Latinas Shared The Movies And Shows That Made Them Feel Seen

Nickelodeon

It’s no secret that over the past few decades, people of color worked to fight for equal representation on screens both big and small. While, of course, there have been great POC and LGTBQ relationships on television there’s really been a spike in the spectrum of representation since our early years watching television and learning about relationships.

Recently, we asked Latinas on Instagram what shows and movies featured their favorite most diverse couples.

And the answers threw us for a time loop!

Check them out below!


“Maria and Luis on Sesame Street.”- melissa_phillips71


“Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner is The Bodyguard, they reminded me of my parents and they loved to play the soundtrack.” –millenialmarta


“The leads in Someone Great, Jane and Michael the virgin and the lesbian relationship Gentrified. It’s been 30 years and I finally found characters I can relate to.” –allyss_abyss_

“Most definitely, “Brooklyn 99”: two female Hispanics as regulars and a white person playing a Hispanic (Andy Samberg’s character’s last name is Peralta, which is a Spanish surname).” – seadra2011

“Holt and Kevin(and Rosa Diaz) have changed the way people have perceived gay couples and gay people. Nine Nine!” –chaoticbiguy


“The first on-screen presence that made me feel seen/represented period was @justinamachado ‘s character on One Day At A Time. A Latina veteran struggling with her mental health while trying to juggle school, work, love, and family? And as a main character? Whew….“-vieja.metiche

“Taína! It was on Disney if I remember correctly?? Then @americaferrera in sisterhood of the traveling pants as Carmen. 😭❤️ her life was like mine. Growing up in suburbs but never really having a place culturally.. but my girlfriends still had my back no matter our background.” –chessy__a
