Nick Loeb on his ex, Sofia Vergara: ‘I like a girl to dress a little classier’


Sofia Vergara and Nick Loeb were on-and-off for years. Their relationship/engagement was often described as “passionate” or “moody” or “running hot and cold.” They seemed to fight a lot and there were even some weird moments in public when it seemed like Nick and Sofia were “over” each other. Finally, they split for good earlier this year and shortly after the split, Sofia started up with Joe Manganiello. They seemed more suited to each other and their relationship seems less fiery. So, when Page Six ran into Nick Loeb this weekend, they asked him about Sofia and Joe and Nick’s reaction was… interesting. He sounds like a d-bag, honestly.

Nick Loeb fully understands who his ex-fiancée Sofía Vergara has chosen as her new man.

When asked what he thought of Joe Manganiello at the Custo Barcelona show Sunday afternoon at Lincoln Center’s Salon, Loeb gave a hearty laugh.

“He’s a great-looking guy,” he said, “I guess if I was a girl, I’d be dating him, too.”

But that doesn’t mean he’s pre-ordered tickets for Manganiello’s “Magic Mike” sequel in the works.

“I didn’t see the first one,” said Loeb, also noting he didn’t catch Vergara’s much-criticized turntable moment at the Emmys. It’d be a surprise if he enjoyed it — his favorite thing for a woman to wear isn’t about sex appeal at all.

“I’m sort of a conservative, so I like a girl to dress a little classier,” he says.

Meaning not a lot of Vergara-style cleavage?

“No,” he said. “I’ve always sort of liked the more classic, elegant look on a woman.”

[From Page Six]

Nick is a big-C Conservative – he comes from a Republican family, very active in politics, and there were rumors several years ago that Nick was going to run for political office in Florida. I always thought it would be so weird if Sofia Vergara ended up as a Republican politician’s wife, just because she is so vivacious and Charo-esque, and how would that even play in the GOP? But to publicly call out your former fiancée as not “classy”? RUDE. If you’re looking for your Jackie, why are you proposing to a Marilyn?

    F*ck him.

      Sit down trick.

    • maybeiamcrazy says:

      +2 What an asshole.

    • doofus says:

      um, the only reason most people know his name (and I wouldn’t have except it was included in this post…lol) is because of his association with her, so…

      yeah, have a seat, d-bag.

    • BW says:

      Aesop’s Fable “The Fox and the Sour Grapes.”

      There was a hungry fox who came upon a grape vine growing over a wall. He jumped and tried to climb to get at the grapes, but they were always just out of reach. Finally, the fox slunk away mumbling, “They were probably sour grapes anyway.”

      • TW says:

        BW, how true, thanks for the reference! The main reason I hate “dating” is this risk you run with some guys. Once when I very politely declined a second date, I was literally told that I wasn’t “such a great catch either.” Haha, EWWW.

    • Rice says:

      Indeed. He’s a pure bred jackass, plain and simple.

    • Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

      he doesn’t look f*ckable thats the problem – Joe looks like he likes ladies at least. Nick might be more suitable for Stephen Harper.

    • homegrrrl says:

      ” I like my -girls- to dress a little classier” translates to, “I’d prefer a female to lack sexual confidence, versus a mature Woman”, also code for, “I am an insecure male”.

    • Zigggy says:

      Wow, no kidding. Skeevy bugger.

  2. TheCountess says:

    What a turd (and I can’t stand Sofia Vergara, so making me defend her makes him a double-douche).

    Sounds like the kind of guy who hits on a woman and when she rejects him, calls her fat (among other things) and says she’s lucky he even talked to her.

  3. escondista says:


  4. Jegede says:

    I’m enjoying this break up more than I ought to. This is like a Wendy Williams show

  5. hutter says:

    He could have used the word ‘demurely’, at the very least or better still, just shut up about it…

  6. GiGi says:

    And I like a guy to not be a complete dickwad, but that’s not stopping ol’ Nick Loeb, is it, now. What a douche.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Yeah, it’s so elegant to imply that your ex dressed in a way you found tasteless. What a gentleman.

      • Aussie girl says:

        Exactly & why did you date her for so long and get engaged. Did someone have a gun to your head forcing you. What a dick

  7. PunkyMomma says:

    And how do you like your women to dress? What a jack*ss!

  8. Tapioca says:

    Because nothing screams “classy” louder than paying prostitutes for sex, eh Nick?

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      LOL…exactly. What a sh*t stain.

      Although I think that Nick is definitely Sofia’s type. She seems to like the d-bags for some reason.

      In fact, everything I’ve heard about Joe M is that he’s pretty much the same sort of egotistical a-hole as Loeb so she definitely has a pattern.

      • I Choose Me says:

        Yep. The type of man who’s all, I’m a macho man and thinks he’s much smarter than he actually is.

    • Sumodo1 says:

      My thoughts exactly. When’s the next rocket going into space? I want HIM ON IT!

    • FLORC says:

      I was scrolling down hoping someone would bring this up. He’s lacking in class and hasn’t a leg to stand on in this.

      I’m not a SV fan, but she’s better off. She’s got the same taste in men as Kelly Brook

    • Elle Kaye says:

      And hawking his “Fried Onions” at The White House and other events when he was her +1…that was a very classy touch, leaving condiments scattered all over the tables and taking selfies with them. Yep…he is oozing class.

  9. Lucy2 says:

    Um…isn’t he the one who was accused of enjoying the hookers and blow? Yup, classy.

    • TheCountess says:

      He sounds like a classic case of Madonna/whore complex.

      • Kiddo says:


      • Godwina says:

        Yup. This guy does not have a healthy view of women. RED FLAG.

      • katP says:

        +10000000 he definitely has some issues

      • susiecue says:

        Nice SATC reference 🙂

      • I Choose Me says:

        Ding ding ding.

      • TheCountess says:

        As often as I quote SATC, I actually didn’t realize I was referencing it for once, ha ha.

        I dated a jerk like this off and on for almost a decade. Oh he loved the hooker heels and the cleavage baring dresses, but he invariably would decide he was “conflicted” because he needed someone “of faith” (apparently HIS behavior was exempt from his strict religious standards I was being held to). I put up with it because I was young enough when it started to keep misinterpreting his episodes of crawling back and “missing me” as signs of “true love” and assign ridiculous amounts of literary depth to the nonsense.

        In the end, he just wanted to get laid with someone who knew what she was doing and indulged his self-denial about what he really wanted and liked. I could never compete with his true love, Jeebus, and his second true love, himself.

  10. Frida_K says:

    Such sour grapes, my goodness.

    She’s well rid of this one and he needs to shut his mouth and behave “a little classier.” If I were her, I’d be laughing about this, though, because now all she needs to do is smile, not say anything, and have her fun with Joe. The horse is out of the barn now–her ex is truly a jerk–so she can do absolutely nothing and come out of this one smelling like roses.

  11. Anna says:

    He sounds like a complete jerk. I’m so over men thinking they have the right to decide what women should wear and what’s “classy” or not and it’s even worse when women begin to cosign these sexist ideas that men put out.
    He just sounds salty now because she’s with someone who is more fun and hotter than him. I’m glad she’s not with him anymore, he sounds like a controlling freak.

  12. notpretentious says:

    Bitter party of one, lol!

  13. 8th street trick says:

    What a jackass. The guy is a notorious cheater and its always with callgirls. There were photos of him on TheDirty in a hottub with hookers. Classy my ass.

  14. Kiddo says:

    Do as I say, not as I do-much? He had a relationship for a while with a va-va-voom woman who showcased cleavage. So, someone is a bit of a hypocrite, no? Sounds like sour grapes, big time.

  15. Talie says:

    Yeah, all those blind items about his extracurricular activities make him sound real conservative. What a dope…

  16. Lee says:

    Yeah, Nick, and I want a guy to BE a little classier. I guess that leaves you completely out of the running. Loser.

  17. ataylor says:

    Isn’t this the same guy with the hooker and cocaine problems? What a colossal d-bag.

    • Andrea says:

      Sounds like a lot of conservatives I know. Do as I say, not as I do. Look at Rob Ford.

      • Elle Kaye says:

        No…he sounds like a politician…John Edwards, Bill Clinton, JFK…all professed to be family men. It doesn’t matter the party affiliation, they have a sense of entitlement and think they can get away with it. If a politician is speaking, I look behind the curtain to see who is pulling the strings. The only ones I marginally trust are the ones who are willing to work across party lines and play nice. So, I trust very few.

  18. Belle Epoch says:

    D-bag! That’s a lesson in how NOT to behave right there. This must make her happy it’s over.

    He always seemed to treat her with contempt – which is bizarre, since most men would probably give anything just to be near her. How does a superstar get mixed up with a disdainful boyfriend?

  19. Konspiracytheory says:

    I gasped when I read the quote – what a jackass.

  20. Chris says:

    Big C conservative alright!

  21. Chrissy says:

    And yet Sofia was good enough to propose to and chase for years! She’s well rid of this ass!

  22. alexc says:

    I hate when men call women “girls”. She’s not a girl, she’s a grown up. D*&^bag!

    • Chris says:

      What about ladies? Is that acceptable?

      • lower-case deb says:

        microsoft word doesn’t consider it acceptable. it keeps putting a red squiggly line underneath it and insists i use the word ‘woman’ (or women) instead.


  23. Megan says:

    He is so creepy. What did she ever see in him?

  24. Hautie says:

    So lets see if I have a grasp of things.

    This is the same man, who was mooching off Sophia financially. For years. Does he even have a job that he earns income from?

    The same man… that yes… was all over “The Dirty”. From very clear full color hot tubbing pictures. To the escorts graphically telling their tales about him. About the blow, his limp d*ck and such things. And how he sh*t talked Sophia to anyone who would listen.

    I would hope a “classy” man, would not be the type to get caught in a hot tub full of hookers in Florida. Or be a financial drain on his very wealthy girlfriend. I wonder how he is paying his bills now… since the cash flow got stopped.

    I truly hope that Sophia has had an excellent Summer with Joe. And has not thought twice about this broke mooching d*ck head.

  25. smcollins says:

    Wow….bitter much? If she lacks the kind of class he prefers in a woman then why did he even date her, let alone propose? I never understood that pairing to begin with. And I read somewhere that he sometimes treated her badly, belittling her and such. What a douche.

    • Addison says:

      I never had an opinion about this guy till now. Such a rude comment. Creep! So yeah why did he even date her in the first place. So she was good enough to sleep with but never really wanted to marry her. Disgusting man! Thank goodness I won’t ever see one of his political ads then.

      Kind of reminds me of the Elle Woods character in Legally Blond. The guy left her because she wasn’t “serious”. Just makes me mad. Don’t want to even see this guys face!

  26. Godwina says:

    He *is* a d-bag! He’s a vile repub pundity type and, well, now it’s out, innit?

    I really don’t like SV and DESPISE Modern Family, but really, asshole? “Dress a little classier”? In d-bag rightwing Limbaugh slutshame world, that’s dogwhistle for “my ex is a wh*re”. How hateful.

  27. Darkladi says:

    Jack-ass. Va va voom worked when he was hitting it. Having said that I am so over the Charo thing with her

  28. Pager90 says:

    He sounds like a jerk. He was with Sofia for years, now suddenly he didn’t like it. WTF

    P.S.Didn’t Clooney basically say the same thing about his Ex’s? I don’t like it when any guy does that. It’s just jerky.

  29. Christin says:

    He certainly made that quote specific, didn’t he? I’m not a fan of hers, but I can safely say she is better off without him.

    However, they kept drifting back to each other, so it won’t be surprising if they eventually reconcile and begin the drama again.

  30. Isa says:

    Sophia oozes sex appeal. She could put on the same outfit as another woman and it look completely different. I know a lot of people complain that she wears a lot of similar dresses but she knows what works for her body.

  31. pnichols says:

    oooh NOW he doesn’t like the way she dresses. F*** this guy. Go lick your ego elsewhere.

  32. Keiley says:

    I’d like to call him a big C, but it definitely doesn’t stand for conservative. Say what you want about Sofia but there’s no denying that she’s a BEAUTIFUL woman. Absolutely stunning. The poor football jock got dumped by the prom queen and now he’s all like “it’s cool she wasn’t that hot anyway someone grab me a Natty ice while I go call a hooker”

  33. Ana says:

    What an a…

    Never liked him really. Gives off a creepy vibe

    • Mike says:

      Agreed. At least we won’t have to think about them getting back together. He pretty much burned that bridge. Classic case of sour grapes.

  34. Susan says:

    To which she should reply, “I like a man to have a comparable career and not have to degrade others to get attention.”

  35. Luciana says:

    As much as I agree with him (Sofia Vergara doesn’t dress classy, sorry), his comment is unnecessary and speaks evil of him.

  36. serena says:

    Douchebag all over.

  37. Grant says:

    F*ck him and his man-boobs.

  38. mellie says:

    So for around four years he was ok with the way she dressed…..I’m sure I’m not alone in stating, “f#$k off”…

    • Andrea says:

      He’s bitter his gravy train has ended. He needs to go away back to the hole he crawled out of. God help us if he runs for politics. We have enough full of themselves politicians amongst us in the US as it is.

      • Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

        if he changed his name to Dick Doeb, Nick might just have a chance to get in with Jimbobs inner circle and (tax free life) by marrying one of the Duggar gals.

  39. Pants says:

    Someone’s bitter.

  40. Annika says:

    What a jealous little d!ck.

  41. phlyfiremama says:

    Sort of like how I like my Politicians to not be raging, abusive cokeheads!!!

  42. G says:

    Oh but that statement was just so classy? Take a seat you’ve been replaced.

  43. kri says:

    WTF is that line??!! “Hey, I like a girl to dress a little classier”. Did he steal that line from a 50’s rat pack film? God, spare us all any further pearls of dum dum that fall from this swine’s mouth.

  44. AceMom2 says:

    “I like a girl to dress a little classier”….. Yeah, and us ‘girls’ like our men to BE a little classier than the likes of you Nick (The Dick) Loeb! What a douchebag. The only reason I even recognize his name is from her… I don’t watch MF & I’m not a Sofia fan per se, but really dude? STFU!

  45. Dancinnancy says:

    She probably likes a guy who can keep his mouth shut.

  46. Denise says:

    Yeah. I’m sure he really suffered having to deal with her not wearing loose turtlenecks and chinos.

  47. Bucky says:

    This guy came off as a controlling, sexist asshole from day one. I am so glad they broke up, he seems so shady and so terrible. Ugh, I feel dirty looking at his creepy, evil face.

  48. Marianne says:

    He has the right to have whatever opinion he wants and he has the right to be attracted to a certain look if he wants…..but it brings up one question for me. If he truly felt this way, then why did he bother dating her in the first place?

    Also, kind of rude to shade her. If people need a reason for the break-up just tell them you had differing opinions/lifestyles.

  49. Shelby says:

    She DOES dress like trash tho

  50. Bread and Circuses says:

    She probably would also have preferred her ex to show a bit more class.

  51. smee says:

    Listen up South Florida hookers – he likes you to dress classy!

  52. Miss M says:

    What a nice and classy guy.

  53. Lia says:

    Quite the non-gentleman, isn’t he?

  54. Ruyana says:

    I’d say Sofia most definitely traded up!

  55. kibbles says:

    What I dislike about guys like Loeb is that they have no problems dating and sleeping with certain types of women then later on calling those women whores and sluts. Give me a break. These douchebags enjoy sleeping with hot women, they have probably themselves slept with more people than is probably deemed suitable for someone “classy” (but it’s okay because they are men), and they continue to sleep with hot women even after marrying someone “classier”. It’s totally the Madonna/Whore complex.

  56. kitty-bye says:

    She is gorgeous, it doesn’t matter what she wears!

  57. Anath Pariah says:

    He looks like a guy I had an encounter with a few weeks ago. Neither one of them are technically bad looking, but there’s just something slimy about both of them.

    I can’t stand Vergara and to be fair she DOES look like a high price escort pretty much all the time.

    I don’t want to take either’s side.

  58. Sienna says:

    Frustrated little loser D-bag

  59. Mrs. Ari Gold says:

    She must have had very low self esteem to have ever been with him. So happy for her she’s no longer with such a creepy, disrespectful person.

    Outta there! Go Sofia!!!

  60. Britt says:

    What a hypocritical republican douchebag. He is saying this crap now—but rumors here in Florida (and elsewhere) are that Sofia found out about his penchant for call girls and finally dumped his ass. Typical big C. This guy has a huge appetite for hookers & cocaine-both of which are as plentiful as water down here-Allegedly, of course. And then he has the nerve to shame the way Sofia dresses? Fuck this guy.
