YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Though this property gossip first heard word via covert communique from kindly snitch Joe Hazsomdish, turns out the eagle-eyed celebrity real estate chroniclers at Realtor.com were the first to reveal that sitcom superstar Sofía Vergara’s three-bedroom and three-bathroom condo in a luxury high-rise along Los Angeles’s Wilshire Corridor has popped up for rent at $7,200 per month. Property records and other online resources show the sensationally curvaceous Colombian-born and bred newlywed — married just a couple of weeks ago to equally loin churning “True Blood” and “Magic Mike” star Joe Manganiello in a Palm Beach extravaganza widely estimated to have cost as much as $4 million — acquired the mid-floor condominium in July 2007 for $1.1 million.
The 2,071 square foot, city-view apartment, about midway between walk-able downtown Westwood and the notoriously haughty Los Angeles Country Club, was done over per listing details with “the finest quality in finishes and craftsmanship.” Cleared of all furnishings and décor, the combination living and dining room has crisp white walls and dark chocolate hardwoods not to mention a wee-seeming flat-screen television mounted above an inset media storage cabinet jammed awkwardly between two of the room’s five picture windows. The somewhat petite kitchen, fully open to the dining area, is expensively if generically equipped with a predictable collection of high-quality stainless steel appliances and slab marble counter tops on white Shaker-style cabinets. The master suite is complete with an ample, marble-slathered bathroom and a custom-fitted walk-in closet linked by a small dressing area outfitted with built-in wardrobes and a three-way mirror that allowed the red carpet cynosure to make sure her globally lusted after curves weren’t bustin’ the seams of her designer duds. Building residents are provided a plethora of five-star services that include an attended, beige-marble lobby, 24-hour security and concierge services, valet parking in the on-site garage, an exercise facility, and swimming pool.
For the last handful of years Miz Vegara has ranked at the tippy top of Forbes’ annual list of the highest paid women on television. She reportedly rakes in at least $325,000 per episode as the fiery, thick accented Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on “Modern Family” and her numerous additional endeavors and endorsements — she co-founded the booming Hispanic talent management agency Latin World Entertainment — are estimated to have earned her somewhere in the vicinity of $28.5 million this year. Commensurate with a woman of her spectacular success and pecuniary means, almost two years ago, in February 2014, the buxom brunette bombshell shelled out $10.6 million for an lavishly appointed 11,400-square-foot Italian-style villa set behind ornate gates in Beverly Hills that at the time of her purchase offered seven bedrooms, eleven bathrooms, a 3,000 bottle wine cellar and tasting room, a movie theater/card room, a fitness room, and a backyard swimming pool and spa.
