Why Sofia Vergara Wants Heidi Klum to Take Off Her Heels on ‘AGT’
Sofia Vergara was recently a guest on the Howie Mandel Does Stuff podcast. The two America’s Got Talent judges chatted about everything from Vergara’s penchant for cursing to why she prefers fellow judge Heidi Klum to wear shorter heels.
Sofia Vergara Talks About Heidi Klum’s High Heels
Vergara admitted that she sometimes feels insecure sitting next to Klum on the judging panel. As she said, “Why am I at 50 competing with this? It’s not fair.” She added that supermodels like Klum are “from another species.”
The Modern Family actress went on to admit that she will ask Klum to take off her high heels, because Vergara looks short in comparison. When Mandel pointed out that they’re seated during the show, Klum said it “doesn’t matter psychologically.”
“What if there is an emergency, and I have to run out, and she has to run out?” Vergara said, adding that she doesn’t have as much of a problem with Klum wearing regular heels. However, she doesn’t want her to wear platforms.
Vergara also admitted that she sits on a pillow so she’ll look taller when sitting next to Klum. In reality, Klum is only two inches taller than Vergara, who joked, “I just like bothering her.”

Vergara Reveals Why She Curses So Much
During the new podcast, Mandel described Vergara as “a potty mouth.” The actress explained that cursing “gives me time to think.” So instead of simply pausing or saying “um” as she tries to think of a word, she’ll say a curse word.
Vergara elaborated, saying that she doesn’t do the same thing when she’s speaking Spanish. She also said that her son Manolo doesn’t curse, and he calls her out for saying bad words. Vergara joked that “he just looks at me, disappointed, all the time.”
At the very end of the chat, Vergara even got a little potty-mouthed without even intending to. While discussing Simon Cowell’s snacking habits, she said he used to eat peanuts during AGT instead of his current favorite tangerines. Except she accidentally pronounced “peanuts” a little differently.
