Eric Stonestreet Thanks 'The View' for Hooking Him Up With His Girlfriend (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 18th 2011 3:00PM
Eric Stonestreet plays Cam on 'Modern Family,' and does such a good job in the role that many viewers are convinced he's gay in real life, too. But that's not the case. Stonestreet told 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) the last time he was on that he was "openly straight," and as it turns out, that line helped him meet his current girlfriend.

Stonestreet updated the ladies on his relationship status when he stopped by on Friday. "I didn't know it at the time, but one of the people watching that show that day was my now-girlfriend, and when I met her she was doing a show on Broadway called 'Rock of Ages,'" he explained. "I kinda always felt like I had to dig myself out of a bit of a hole, and tell girls know that I'm actually straight. But she was like, "Oh, I was watching 'The View' and saw that you weren't gay!' And we're still together."

Eric Stonestreet Is a Patient Afraid of The Piggy Man on 'American Horror Story' (VIDEO)

Eric Stonestreet, 'American Horror Story' - 'Piggy, Piggy'This week, we learned that there are horrors that have nothing to do with the supernatural lurking around the corners of 'American Horror Story' (Wed., 10PM ET on FX). While the secret history of Tate was the driving focus of the episode, Eric Stonestreet appeared as one of Ben's patients tortured by his fear of urban legends.

One legend in particular, about "The Piggy Man," is reminiscent of the classic "Bloody Mary" legend. Ben gets him to recite the words into a mirror that would summon The Piggy Man on two separate occasions throughout the episode, and neither of them turn out well.

Brad Paisley, Eric Stonestreet, Carrie Underwood, 'The 45th Annual CMA Awards'Eric Stonestreet came onto the stage at 'The 45th Annual CMA Awards' (Wed., 8PM ET on ABC) with a mission. While these superstars of country music were busy celebrating their industry and receiving awards for their work this past year, they were ignoring the elephant in the room.

"I think you forgot to sing a song about what's weighing on everyone's mind in this room," Stonestreet told hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood. "The divorce of Kim Kardashian and What's-His-Name."

'Modern Family' - 'Benched' Recap

'Modern Family' - 'Benched'
(S01E20)
I never got mortally embarrassed by my parents. I guess I always assumed that everyone else had them, so they understood. Or maybe I just saw too many television shows and movies about teenagers being horrified to be seen by other kids in the vicinity of those old people who brought them into the world. I don't know, though, if I could get even in quite the way that Claire did this week.

Hilarious but brutal.

On second thought, teenagers are horrible, manipulative, shallow little creatures. Claire did nothing wrong except maybe teach a little humility.

Saving by Spending on 'Modern Family'On the latest episode of 'Modern Family' (Wed., 9PM ET on ABC), a couple switches roles. Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) goes out and gets a job, and thus, it falls to Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) to take up the new position of stay-at-home dad. Unfortunately, Cameron's new job doesn't work out so well.

And the Nomination for Best Supporting Cast Goes to ... 'Modern Family'

by Allyssa Lee, posted Apr 12th 2010 4:12PM
Perhaps not as to disrupt the 'Family' ties, Deadline.com is reporting that the cast ABC's hit comedy 'Modern Family' will maintain a level playing field and all six of its adult stars will enter their Emmy submissions in the supporting categories.

It was a move precipitated by the 'Family' patriarch Ed O'Neill, according to the report. Despite possessing the sitcom's biggest name when the series premiered last year, the former 'Married ... With Children' star felt that no one actor was bigger than another in this strong ensemble and opted to submit his name in the supporting category as if to prove it. The other adult regulars on the cast -- Ty Burrell, Julie Bowen, Sofia Vergara, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet -- are all expected to follow suit.

'Modern Family' Plots its Emmy Strategy

by Allyssa Lee, posted Apr 7th 2010 3:45PM
It's a challenge faced by really strong ensemble casts everywhere: Determining who gets put into lead categories, and who gets put into supporting come Emmy-submission time.

Certainly, it's a dilemma faced by ABC's 'Modern Family,' as the critically acclaimed freshman comedy boasts a clan's worth of award-worthy performers. According to the Hollywood Reporter, there are four different divide-and-conquer Emmy strategies being considered within the 'Family' camp: 1.) Submitting all six of the adult regular cast members (Ed O'Neill, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Sofia Vergara, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet) in the lead category; 2.) putting them all in the supporting category; 3.) designating 'Family' patriarch O'Neill in the lead category and the rest in supporting, or 4.) submitting the "traditional" parents Bowen and Burrell in the lead categories, and the rest in supporting. (Guess this means there's no room at the awards show inn for Rico Rodriguez, who is hilariously on-point as man-child Manny.)

'Modern Family' - 'Game Changer' Recap

'Modern Familiy' - 'Game Changer'
(S01E19)
One of the reasons that Cameron and Mitchell are so fun is that Cameron manages to be both the more flamboyant one, and he's clearly the more badass of the two, as well. Mitchell is always kind of whiny and too uptight with his little fists. Unfortunately, when his ineffectiveness as a tough guy leads him to think he's letting his daughter down as a father, Mitchell decides he needs to toughen up.

Phil's birthday celebration took up the bulk of the episode. Well, actually it was the build-up to his birthday celebration, but most of the events happened on that day. So how'd it go? Well, I'll say that I've had plenty of birthdays that went about as well as Phil's did.

I also taught my sister how to play chess, and she beat me ... that very game. That's right. Now, we were both still children, but come on! That's just ridiculous!

'Modern Family' - 'Starry Night' Recap

Eric Stonestreet & Sofia Vergara, 'Modern Family'(S01E18) It's time to mix up the relationships and find out which ones work the best. My theory: they all do. Tonight, we got to see Cameron hit the town with Gloria, while Jay brought Manny along on his and Mitchell's regular astronomy evening. The new dynamics worked better than anyone could have expected.

Cameron's constantly sticking his foot in his mouth while in Gloria's company created so many moments of hilarity, I had to pause the show several times just to make sure I didn't miss anything.

The Dunphy family stayed at home, because their kids are like all of our kids and neglected to tell their parents about a couple of major things that needed to be done before school the next day. One was a diorama on the life and work of Vincent Van Gogh, while the other was a batch of cupcakes.

Cameron Digs Himself a Hole on 'Modern Family' (VIDEO)

Modern Family, Cameron, GloriaIt's always amazing (and, frankly, shocking) when television characters make you laugh out loud, and that's how we feel about Cameron and Mitchell on 'Modern Family' (Wed., 9PM ET on ABC).

On last night's episode, a comment that Cameron made – well, here it is: "Honestly, I wish that tart would go back to Columbia and take her weird little Brown friend with her" – was completely misconstrued by Gloria. The whole thing was a madcap moment. It's ok if you want to watch it five times. We did.

Could You See Sophia Loren on 'Modern Family'?

Sofia Vergara of Modern Family'Modern Family' is batting a thousand in its first season for perfect, seamless celebrity cameos. We've had Shelley Long, Benjamin Bratt, Elizabeth Banks, and perhaps the best and most bizarre of them all, Edward Norton as Spandau Ballet's bass player. All of them have fit perfectly, and none has really felt like sweeps stunt.

Over at TV Guide, William Keck is trying to find out who else might be popping in on the sitcom. Last week, he talked to Eric Stonestreet about who should play his character's mother next season (his choice is Delta Burke from 'Designing Women'). This week, he asked Sofia Vergara who should play her character's mom, and she chose legendary Italian actress Sophia Loren.

'Modern Family' - 'Truth Be Told' Recap

Ed O'Neill, 'Modern Family'(S01E17) Dammit! Wives are more right than we'd like to admit, aren't they, guys? I was convinced Claire was completely overreacting to Phil's Faceook communications with his ex-girlfriend. My wife and I both have several people from our pasts that we talk to online, and it is completely innocent.

If anything, perhaps the events of this episode could be criticized by saying that they are promoting negative sexual stigmas attached to social networking sites. While the sites do have their dangers, they're certainly not worthy of fear-mongering.

But I'm not going to jump on that soap box. Instead, I'm going to say that this episode was absolutely brilliant. Everything from Flyza Minelli to "A little bit louder" was pitch perfect comedy. I laughed out loud more at this episode than I do entire seasons of most comedy series.

'Modern Family' - 'Fears' Recap

'Modern Famliy' - 'Fears'
(S01E16)
What are you afraid of? That was the question facing the three families that make up this exceptional comedy series. Whether it's a fear of roller coasters, tight places, passing your driver's test, getting asked to dance, or that your daughter isn't connecting to you, it's how we deal with our fears that defines us as people.

'Modern Family' actually surpassed itself in one regard this week. In 16 episodes, most of which were fantastic, this was the first one to choke out a genuine emotional response from me. Phil's closing monologue was touching, and touched on another fear that all parents face: the fear of your children growing up too fast. That, and the fear that they're going to kill someone in your car.

'Modern Family' - 'My Funky Valentine'
(S01E15)
The myriad relationships and characters in 'Modern Family' make it the perfect show to spotlight all the difficulties one can face in love and romance. As Valentine's Day descends on our cast of characters, they each explore new ways to express how much they care about one another, and they each find challenges along the way.

Jay takes Gloria out for a romantic evening, though it's not the one she expects. Mitchell and Cameron, who've agreed to watch Manny for the evening, wind up helping him express his true feelings to the girl he pines for, after another boy took credit for his poetry and scored a date with her.

Review: 'Modern Family' - 'Moon Landing'

by Jason Hughes, posted Feb 4th 2010 2:22AM
The Dunphys, 'Modern Family'(S01E14) Sometimes I wonder if I could just write up a review of 'Modern Family' by listing all of the great quotes that come out of this show. Line for line, this has to be one of the cleverest series on television today. Even the episode title, 'Moon Landing,' recalls a great moment.

The action this week was split between Jay and Cameron heading off to the gym to play racquetball, Mitchell helping Gloria with a traffic-related legal problem, and Claire's reunion with an old work colleague from before Claire became a stay-at-home mom. Minnie Driver was well cast as the friend, Valerie, but her performance was completely overshadowed by the brilliance of the episode itself.
