Not many people know about Sofia Vergara's battle with cancer. The "Modern Family" star was diagnosed with the disease when she was just 28 years old and underwent surgery to remove her thyroid. Following the operation, Vergara, now 40, was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and has been taking the medication Synthroid to control her hormone levels every day ever since. She is now the spokeswoman for the new campaign "Follow the Script," made possible by AbbVie, which aims to educate individuals with hypothyroidism about the importance of being consistent with the treatment their doctor prescribes.
HuffPost Celebrity was on hand for the launch of the campaign at the Trump SoHo in New York City on April 17, where Vergara discussed her own battle with the condition and what she does to stay happy and healthy. Vergara revealed that she discovered her thyroid issue while at her son Manolo's doctor's appointment in 2000. The physician convinced her to get a check-up and then found out that her thyroid was abnormal just by touching her throat. They did a biopsy and uncovered that her thyroid was, in fact, cancerous.
"They removed my thyroid and since then I have to use medication," she told reporters at the event. "I got rid of the cancer and then for me it was, ‘Oh shoot, now I have to live with this condition my whole life ... I have to be on medication my whole life and I don’t have a thyroid.' So, of course I had to make myself realize what was going on with my body and I have to say in the past ten years, I never had a problem. I’m very very straight with the way I try to do what the doctor says and I go to my doctor religiously and get my blood tests."
Vergara also makes sure to take her prescription at the same time every morning, although she does find it difficult since she doesn't get to eat for a half hour afterward.
"I have the thing [prescription bottle] in my night table and before I go to sleep I put [a pill] out, so I just open my eyes and take it," she explained. "Usually I’m a morning person, so I want to have breakfast and immediately eat and everything, so for me this is torture! Like, if I’m working it's fine because the minute I wake up I shower, so while I’m showering a half hour, an hour goes by, but when I’m on the weekend, I’m like in my bed, ‘This is torture waiting [to eat] 29 minutes … 30 minutes … ok, I can eat something!’" she joked. "But I mean it’s simple, it’s like everything –- you get used to it."
Still, don't assume the Colombian bombshell eats anything she wants. Vergara admitted she believes in moderation.
"You shouldn’t do too much of anything -- that could mean working out, that could mean dieting like crazy. I mean, I drink alcohol, but like a little bit. You have to live your life and be happy because I think being happy and not stressing all the time also helps you. You know, having your good times and being healthy," she explained. "But it’s important to go to the doctor, to have your checkups, to workout, eat healthy, everything. Do everything that you can."
But Vergara confessed that she did get a little crazy about her diet after discovering she had cancer.
"At the beginning when I had the cancer, I thought, 'I'm going to eat everything organic, everything healthy,' because you’re thinking, 'What caused this cancer?' You know, I didn’t smoke, I didn’t do many things that were unhealthy, so I did become a little crazy, but after three months I realized this is so exhausting!" she said, continuing, "It was insane, like having shots of spinach, I mean crazy! So I tried to do healthy things, but not [get] crazy."
"I think the most important part for me is my dosage and not thinking because I have hypothyroidism, [I have to be healthy]," Vergara admitted. "I think everybody should try to eat healthy and work out and exercise for everything. Even for anti-aging, you’re going to look better you’re going to feel better for everything."

Today’s announcement coincides with the release of an exclusive tease from the premiere of the series’ eighth and final season, which debuts on Sunday June 30th at 9 p.m. ET/PT . The series premiered on October 1, 2006 and has grown its loyal audience every season since its debut. DEXTER was the recipient of the prestigious Peabody Award, as well as 25 Emmy and 10 Golden Globe Award nominations, and was twice named one of AFI’s top ten television series.
“When it debuted in 2006, DEXTER redefined the genre, by taking the anti-hero to new heights and pushing the boundaries of the television landscape,” said Matthew C. Blank, Chairman and CEO, Showtime Networks Inc. “DEXTER paved the way for the next generation of award-winning hit SHOWTIME series, and its cultural impact will be felt for years to come.”
“DEXTER is a landmark franchise for our network, and we cannot wait to unveil the conclusion of this series, as we know it, to the millions of passionate fans who have supported the show season after season,” said David Nevins, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc. “We’d like to thank Michael, Jennifer, and DEXTER ‘s indomitable cast, executive producers, writers and crew for eight incredible seasons.”
The exclusive tease from DEXTER ‘s eighth and final season premiere gives fans a sneak peek into the mindset of Dexter and Debra Morgan after LaGuerta’s death in season seven. To watch the clip, go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dy6u5rXqN5o.
DEXTER stars Michael C. Hall in his Golden Globe and SAG Award-winning role as Dexter Morgan, a complicated and conflicted blood-spatter expert for the Miami police department. Season eight begins six months after LaGuerta’s murder – and Dexter is still managing life as a dad, brother, and serial killer. As Deb (series star Jennifer Carpenter) struggles to deal with the consequences of her actions, a mysterious woman comes to work with Miami Metro, offering first-hand information on Dexter’s past. The series also stars Desmond Harrington, C.S. Lee, Aimee Garcia, David Zayas, Geoff Pierson and James Remar.

Patrick J. Adams di “Suits” – puntate inedite seconda stagione su Joi da stasera 18 aprile, ogni giovedì in prima serata - ha appena finito di girare il corto “The Come Up”. Si tratta di un ironico salto nel cinema-cinema in cui il protagonista, interpretato da Adams, deve acciuffare un bandito mascherato che compromette la produzione di un film rubando il budget a disposizione. La rincorsa del malvivente da parte del nostro è un pretesto per percorrere tutto un dietro le quinte (e di luoghi comuni) del cinema holywoodiano, passando da un set all’altro in pochi minuti. Nel cast, anche Troian Bellisario di “Pretty Little Liars” (terza stagione inedita su Mya, ogni giovedì in seconda serata). (Articolo tratto dalla Newsletter settimanale di Qui Mediaset).

Save the cheerleader, launch a new programming initiative? MSN, which is making a big push into original programming via Xbox, is in talks to revive NBC’s superhero drama Heroes, TVLine has learned exclusively. Details remain sketchy, but sources confirm that MSN is interested in relaunching the once red-hot NBC Universal franchise with new stories and heroes, while mixing in cameos from the original series’ cast (schedules and interest permitting). The talks are said to be in the preliminary stages. In February, MSN hired former NBC development executive Jada Miranda to oversee production of its fledgling Xbox entertainment studio under ex-CBS president Nancy Tellem (who came on board last fall). Heroes‘ four-season run on NBC ended in February 2010.
