Sofia Vergara: Illness, not surgery, keeps her from the 2013 Oscars
The New York Post first reported that Vergara was hospitalized Saturday (Feb. 23) due to a "nasty case of the flu." Its source adds that she was released Sunday and watched the awards show from her Los Angeles-area home.
Vergara adds on Twitter, "Watching the Oscars at home so I dont give everyone the flu haha!", along with the above photo on Instagram.
Yahoo's OMG UK blog had reported that Vergara was "admitted to the hospital for an operation," adding that the "nature of her condition remains unknown as yet." But it appears as though that was not the case.
