Sofia Vergara supports her Republican boyfriend’s political plans


Sofia Vergara has been dating her boyfriend Nick Loeb for a few years now. She always talks about him, but… I sometimes wonder if there’s something “off” about them. I get the feeling that Sofia could do better, and that Sofia realized a while ago that she could do better, and she’s just been waiting for an opportunity to leave. Last year, Nick was hit by a car, and he suffered a broken pelvis, a shattered leg and some severe cuts. I think Sofia stayed with him… well, okay, I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt and say that she stayed with him because she loves him. But she also stayed with him (a least a little bit) because she would have looked like a major bitch if she dumped him when he was in the ICU, facing months of physical rehabilitation. Maybe it is love, and I’m just a jaded, cynical bitch (Filed under: “Things That Are True”). All I know is that I get a weird vibe from Sofia whenever she’s talking about Nick. Like… she’s constantly reviewing her options. Like she’s making plans with him, but she’s also making sure she has an escape plan if she needs it. Take this new interview where Sofia talks about Nick’s political plans – he’s a Republican!

Is Sofia Vergara ready for Capitol Hill? Her boyfriend of more than a year – Republican environmental businessman Nick Loeb, 35 – is considering a 2012 run for the Florida U.S. Senate seat.

“I don’t know if it will really happen, but I’m very excited for him,” the Modern Family star and budding fashion designer, 39, told PEOPLE at Sunday’s premiere of The Smurfs in New York.

“If he decides to do it, I think he will be amazing. My boyfriend is very inclined to politics and that’s his passion,” she says.

Now eying Democratic Florida Sen. Bill Nelson’s seat, Loeb previously ran for the Florida state Senate in 2009 but eventually dropped out to deal with a divorce.

If Loeb officially launches a bid for the Senate, expect to see his double Emmy-nominee girlfriend on the campaign trail, knocking on doors and waving signs for her beau.

“Of course I will help him, why not?” says Vergara. “I support him with everything. If that’s what he wants to do in his life, I will be there for him.”

And how will Vergara handle her duties as a politician’s girlfriend?

“I would just be my funny self, but that’s far away!” says the bombshell. “We don’t know if it’s going to happen now. Maybe in the long future.”

Bill Nelson already has two terms under his belt, and he’s already announced that he’s running again, which means that he’s spent a significant amount of time building his campaign war chest. Still, I could see how the RNC would think that Sen. Nelson is vulnerable, and actively target his seat. Who better to target independent Florida voters than an attractive young man with an extensive business background and a gorgeous Latina girlfriend? Eh… it might be “too Hollywood” for the current Republican party.

    So sad looking “like a major bitch” is not relished more, I quite like it!

    Sofia is just beautiful, as for her Repubby (Republican future-hubby)…. he seems a bit boring, but maybe that is what it takes!

  2. CandyKay says:

    I think he’s very attractive.

  3. Mrs. Odie 2 says:

    A Florida Republican? Oh no…

  4. kris says:

    who gives a f*ck if hes a republican. good for him. and good for her for supporting him.

  5. gee says:

    This might be preemptive or whatever, but I have to say, not all republicans are bad. I hate that people assume every republican is that stupid witch lady or a tea party member! Republicans have a very wide spectrum (just like democrats) with great ideas just with a different point of view.

    Neither party (or party member) is perfect, I hate the villinizing of republicans.

  6. Eve says:

    He looks like a male Heidi Fleiss in that first picture.

  7. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    If Arnold wasn’t too Hollywood for Republicans I don’t see how they’d have a problem with this guy.

    @gee, ITA. I took the exact same position on a Palin thread last week.

  8. Liz says:

    Republican? Ugh, now theres a woman who obviously can’t think for herself. Good thing she’s pretty…

  9. jc126 says:

    Well, for some reason she annoys me in those commercials, but so what if her boyfriend is a Republican? I am most certainly NOT a Republican, but I know and love several of them. I find the ones in DC largely a-holish, such as Boehner and Gingrich, but that doesn’t mean individuals who vote “R” are all jerks, too.
    Edited to add – my sister is an elected Democrat in her state, and she is married to a very conservative Republican who is a great guy. So things can work out. What would be jerky behavior is if he tried to tell her how to vote, but he does not.

  10. Annaloo says:

    Gah.. for as much as the Republican party bashes Hollywood, they sure love to talk about it. I had watched Fox News the other day and was surprised how many Hollywood stories were reported. It’s def a love/hate thing.

  11. NancyMan says:

    Liz, I think you’re a kettle calling the pot black…

  12. Leticia says:

    @NancyMan, agreed regarding Liz.

  13. TQB says:

    I have dated many Republicans. What I would never do is date someone with passive, uninformed political beliefs, or no opinions at all. (Or a Yankee fan, but that’s a different conversation.)

  14. Oi says:

    @gee: totally agreed. Very well said. Thats one of the reasons I ceased to have a party affiliation. Its the same kind of hypocrisy that we were just discussing where Lady Gaga’s fans were bullying Adele for being fat. And the attitude towards Reps/conservatives that Liz presented is unfortunately just fine with many liberals/democrats. This board so far is very reassuring. thanks for some early morning sense people!

    TQB: with u all the way on the Yankees fan! Go Rangers!

  15. SD_R_SR says:

    He’ll never win Nelson’s seat. Bill Nelson is loved by Floridian Democrats and Independents. Plus, with Rick Scott as governor here, Republicans are growing more and more unpopular.

  16. esblondie says:

    I didn’t think “republican” and “environmental” went together…

  17. JC126 says:

    Yes, TQB, some differences can’t be overcome. GO SOX!!!! : )

  18. REALIST says:

    Ick-Bumper sticker wisdom “Friends don’t let (boy)friends vote Republican”. Running for a Republican office-even more extreme.

  19. garvels says:

    I personally dream that one day everyone would have no party affiliations. I truly think people are more alike then they think they are and the party system just divides people on a few issues.I think if one could remove all of the parties and the special interests on both sides the country might actually elect a politician who does what he says he will do. Candidates would be forced to clearly define their plans and would not be able to get by with Democratic and Republican talking points.

    @ #15….one word


    …nuff said.

  21. Leslie says:

    People have made some good points not all Republicans are alike or bad. But yes, I am a democrat.

    Oh, is he Cuban? Lol…J/K.

  22. girl says:

    I agree with the sentiment upthread. Assholiness knows no party bounds. It seems so childish when either side of the political spectrum does it. Aren’t Mary Matalin and James Carville a pretty famous “unevenly yoked” couple? I thought we were supposed to celebrate diversity.

    If you are looking to find someone who agrees with you on ABSOLUTELY everything, 1) it seems pretty closeminded and 2) you are closing yourself of to some great people.

  23. mskimberlyclark says:

    am I delusional when I assume Republicans are against taxing the rich more than the poor? Against regulating the banking industry? For controlling a woman’s reproductive choices and against birth control for unmarried couple? Against gay rights and immigration reform? Against affirmative action and diversity? More likely to be Christian and not respect people of other religions? Have not read the Constitution or understand it? These are the “stereotypes” I have of Republicans and this is why I don’t trust them. I hope this doesn’t get me banned from your website. I’m being sincere and not using profanity. As a gay Athiest I think they wish I had never been born or could change if I wanted to.Can someone point to a Republican who does not fit into my stereotype?
