Sofia Vergara Is Becoming A Media Entrepreneur (PHOTOS)

Modern Family star Sofia Vergara is becoming a one man band, and no we're not talking about her posing nude. Sorry.

After being nominated for an Emmy and winning an award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for 'Modern Family' by the NAACP Image Awards, she launched her clothing and accessories line at Kmart.

The Colombian actress said in an interview with Primer Ahora that she is teaming up with Mexican-American boxing legend Oscar de la Hoya to launch a health website, SuperVida.com, in 2012. Vergara said in an interview with Primera Hora, that being diagnosed with thyroid cancer served as her motivation to reach more Hispanics on important health issues.

"We are going to launch a website called SuperVida, dedicated to educating Hispanic families on health issues that most affect us. There are 50 million Hispanics in this country and there is not a resource like this and we need it. It is going to be revolutionary to better and save lives," Vergara said to Primer Ahora.

Vergara can now add "philanthropist" to her title as she has just been named the Co-chair of BeLive, an "event that raises much-needed funds for four Colombian non-profit organizations, such as: Give to Colombia, Formula Sonrisas, Genesis Foundation and ArtNexus Foundation," as stated in the press release.

The 5th Anniversary of BeLive will take place on Thursday, November 17 at The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach.
