Sophia Vergara, star of ABC’s Modern Family, is in talks with Kmart about an endorsement deal worth eight million dollars. Becoming the new face of Kmart, could only enhance her already skyrocketing career. However, if Vergara becomes the new face of the department store, it leaves us to wonder what is happening with Jaclyn Smith. Will Kmart be letting her go, or just adding a new addition to their arsenal?
What would the Kmart endorsement entail?
According to ShowbizSpy, if Sophia Vergara were to get to the Kmart endorsement, she would be doing much more than just being a pretty face. She would have her own line of beauty products. In addition to that, Vergara would also have her own line of clothing, hair products, as well as other accessories. With her name on the Kmart brand, the initial figure of eight million could possibly be quite a lot more, depending on marketing and the economy. It would seem she might also ask for a percentage of the profit on items carrying her name. If that is the case, the sky would be the limit on how far she could take this deal.
What else has Sophia been up to?
According to Fox News, Vergara is also involved in charity work. She has been making appearances for the Seven Bar Foundation as well as the Children’s Defense Fund. Both are noble charities, and we assume time consuming for Vergara. She is also in the Sony Pictures film, The Smurfs, playing the role of Odile. The Smurfs has a release date of August 3, 2011. She has been doing voice work for Happy Feet 2, which has a release date of November 18, 2011. We can’t forget her role on Modern Family playing Ed O’Neil’s wife, Gloria Delgado-Pritchett. Modern Family has done wonders for her career, and hopefully she will continue in the role as busy as things could get for her.
Whats next for Sophia Vergara?
While we are sure she would be more than happy getting the Kmart deal, she also has to be happy that her boyfriend Nick Loeb’s divorce has been finalized. Maybe more wedding bells will be chiming soon. With Loeb’s car accident earlier this year, which left him with a broken leg and a pelvic fracture, hopefully 2011 is looking up for Sophia ,as well as Nick.Â It sure seems to be.
