Sofia Vergara's Bridezilla Moment Is Bound to Heat Up Her Marriage

sofia vergara joe manganiello

Firmly at the top of the "Hottest Hollywood Couple" category is Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello. Joe likes to get primal with his bride-to-be and we've just learned that Sofia Vergara is a Bridezilla. She's even gone as far as to say that she is "beyond" Bridezilla status, but of course it is what propels this couple to the altar and the stratosphere of hotness. Their love is deeper than the ocean despite the fact that Sofia is a self-professed "nightmare."

The bride-to-be told People magazine that she is detail oriented and calls herself a nightmare to deal with.

A nightmare? Sofia? No way. Let's be real, all brides-to-be have a tiny bit of Bridezilla in us waiting to come out. The key is moderation, though I can't help but think everything this couple does is on level 11 -- outer-worldly even. I imagine him being like a caveman and Sofia with her accent loving every moment. Oh Joey, she would say, her voice loaded with flirt. You are so funny, just let me do what I want. She'd kiss him. He'd say yes.

She probably drives him bananas with sexy red nighties and with her insane wedding demands. But as it turns out, when it comes to the wedding, Joe stays out of it. "He lets me do whatever I want," Sofia said.

Good move, Joe.

Obviously, they are a good match. It seems their roles fit into their personalities perfectly and that is what is key. When getting married, you have to have that compatibility -- and if there is a lack of it, it rears its ugly head early on. You have to pay attention and listen to it or else ... it might not be meant to be. You've got to have that balance, and that means different things for different people of course, but for these two -- it all shows how HOT they are for each other. These two are essentially oozing with love for each other. It's kind of insane. Everything they do is with such passion and intensity -- being a Bridezilla makes total sense. She probably goes home after a day of picking out place settings and Joe gets all grunty and primal with her, and the bride- and groom-to-be are happy as can be.

The wedding is happening in November, so she's got another month to be Bridezilla. Learning of all the fuss she's making about everything makes me even more excited to see her dress.

Were/are you a bridezilla?

No, I was actually really laid back.  There were a few things I put my foot down about, such as no Jewish/Catholic influences in our nuptials/reception, so that neither side of the family was represented over the other.  My family is Jewish, his is Catholic, but neither of us feel affiliated with either religion.  I only said no to inviting one particular person who was never a true friend to my mother, a real phony, I didn't want her there.  I did pretty much all the planning myself so that I wouldn't inconvenience anyone, but got annoyed when no one helped me put the place cards with the favors after I asked and they said they would.  I also was firm about working the seating arrangements by myself because arguments would have ensued.  As it was, my parents gave me a hard time about where I sat certain people because they were trying to play matchmaker.  Well, the woman in question didn't make it anyway and died two weeks later.  And everyone was fine with where they were seated, so it all worked out in the end.  The day of the wedding, I stopped worrying about everything and let the day play out as it would, and it was wonderful!  I couldn't stop smiling all day long, and here it is nearly 10-years later that I'm still happily married to my best friend!

I wasn't at all.  My dd's are planning their weddings now and so far neither are.

I wasn't. I had to plan everything on my own and the moment I asked for help, I was called a bridezilla. Ugh!

For the most part, I was very much laid back. There are moments where I got stressed out and, in my mind, became bridezilla if at least for a moment. But everyone swears up and down that I wasn't. Either they're being nice because they didn't want me to become bridezilla again, or I wasn't as bad as I thought I was in those moments. :)

Nope.  I'm planning mine right now and honestly couldn't care less about the details, lol.  I'd be happy eloping, but our parents would kill us.

No, not at all, I was called by someone in the wedding business the most laid back bride she ever worked with

I can't imagine going ape-shit on people just because things don't go according to plan. That's just stupid.
