Stonestreet’s Emmy heading home

Thesp to ship statuette to parents in Kansas City

Emmy hardware is on its way to Kansas.

Eric Stonestreet, supporting comedy actor winner for “Modern Family,” plans to ship his statuette back to his parents’ home in Kansas City, Kan.

It’s only fitting to send them a symbol of his success, because he would not be where he is today without Vince and Jamey, Stonestreet said.

“J-A-M-E-Y,” he helpfully added. “Spell it right.” (Mom accompanied Stonestreet to Sunday’s ceremony.)

“I know exactly where they are going to put it because they have breakfast and dinner in the same place,” Stonestreet said. “I just always want them to see it because I know they are so proud of me.”
