When questioned about how she managed to navigate the public scrutiny surrounding their divorce, the actress credited her ability to endure it, partly, to the nature of the media coverage it received.

Vergara shared that she was surprised by the “type of media coverage” her divorce got. She'd thought that the press would add and invent things while reporting their split but “They kind of just said what it was and, and that was it,” she said.

Navigating the Split

In July 2023, the couple issued a joint statement, revealing their "difficult decision" to opt for a divorce after seven years of marriage. The statement, emphasizing their mutual love and care, urged privacy during the transitional period in their lives. Two days later, Manganiello officially filed for divorce, citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason. The divorce documents obtained by People specified the date of separation as July 2.

Embracing the Present

Having overcome that challenging phase, Vergara shared that she has redirected her attention to living her best life in the present and future. In the CBS interview, she mentioned, "And, you know, I've been moving on."

The Modern Family alum has been spotted on numerous dates in recent months with orthopedic surgeon Justin Saliman. Meanwhile, Manganiello has entered spending time with actress Caitlin O'Connor.

"I'm looking forward to the upcoming TV show," she mentioned, referring to her Netflix limited series, Griselda.
