It's probably not a good idea for a celebrity to get into a hissing match with a tabloid, but Colombia-born Sofía Vergara doesn't follow conventional rules.

And, as one of the highest-paid actresses on TV (Modern Family), she probably doesn't have to. Thus, she went off on the unnamed editor of supermarket tabloid Star on her Instagram page on Wednesday, outraged at the magazine's cover story shouting that Vergara and husband Joe Manganiello, whose extravagant wedding took place in November 2015, were kaput.

"It's Over!" declared the main headline."Sofia caught cheating in Rome" and "Her wedding ring is off," blared other headlines, alongside pictures of Sofía and Joe looking glum, and a smaller picture of her dancing with an unknown man.

 

Basta! Vergara wasn't taking that lying down. She slapped the magazine cover on Instagram and posted a scathing message concluding with a hashtag: #Starmagazinebullies.

"The editor of this magazine is an idiot if he is going to have my ring removed to created a 'fake' 'news,'[sic]" she scoffed,. "he should have made sure that he removed from social media all the other pictures of that award night in Rome where Im wearing it."

And by the way, she added, that other man in the picture is her friend, the producer of the movie she was shooting in Rome, Bent. He even spent Easter "at my home" a week later.

So that about sums up Vergara's response to the "divorce shocker": Denied.

Within two hours of posting, she had more than 100,000 likes, and a slew of supportive comments, many of them in Spanish.

"Ahhahahah I love this! Mess with latinas will they," posted a user named lulugurrl.
