In case you forgot the mission of this brilliant blog, it is called The DVR Files, which means I watch most of my shows on my DVR, which means I watch them late. For example, I only watched Lifetime’s Prosecuting Casey Anthony last night, and it aired on January 19. I’m wild like that!
Last night I also got around to watching Modern Family. Gloria brought home her new baby boy Fulgencio (or Joe?) and we got to meet her mother and sister. And I crinkled my eyebrow because gosh Mama looked familiar . . . because it was Elizabeth Pena (lo siento, don’t know how to do the tildes on my keyboard), who starred on the long-running (13 episodes!) 1980s sitcom I Married Dora.
The best part of casting Dora/Elizabeth as Gloria’s mom is that she is 51 in real life, and Sofia Vergara is 40. Why cast a woman in her 60s? People’s eyes would explode!
