This Week's Shining & Falling Stars: Sofia Vergara and Snooki

July 20th, 2012 11:00am EDT

Sofia Vergara Shining Star- Sofia Vergara: She's truly 40 and fabulous! Not only is she an uber-sexy Latina actress, (seriously, have you seen her body?) but Vergara just earned a spot on Forbes list for the highest paid television actress. It's all thanks to her killer role on the hit sitcom "Modern Family," which seems to be tailored perfectly for her personality.

Not only that, the Columbian-born star is also an entrepreneur. Aside from a clothing line and multiple endorsement deals, Vergara built up her own company called "Latin World Entertainment," a licensing, marketing, production and new-media powerhouse- which made nearly $27 million last year in revenue. She also has her own YouTube channel, which immediately sold out ad space thru 2013.

After raking in $19 million dollars in the past year, and an Emmy-nominated role on a hit sitcom, her career can't get any more caliente!

Falling Star- Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi: Talk about a crappy interview! A very pregnant Snooki, who's not one for modesty, recently had a bad case of verbal diarrhea, after being interviewed on "Live! With Kelly."

The "Jersey Shore" reality star went on the show with BFF J-WOWW to plug their MTV show, and found herself in the hot seat after Kelly pointed out she lied about being pregnant during a prior appearance on the show. Not one to be called out, Snooks quickly changed the subject by asking Ripa a very personal question about her own experience with childbirth.

Snooki blurted out, "Did you poop?"

Ripa, the ultimate pro, didn't miss a beat and replied "No, I've never pooped ever."

Sure, one could argue it's a valid concern, but maybe not for national television. Though I doubt pregnancy will help Snooki develop any sort of filter. After all, that's what has made her famous. TMI ladies!
