Sofía Vergara embraces ‘single’ status during flirty ‘AGT’ exchange amid Joe Manganiello divorce

Sofía Vergara is making her “single” status clear on “America’s Got Talent.”

The “Modern Family” alum told viewers she was on the market after stand-up comedian Ahren Belisle flirted with her on Tuesday’s episode of the show.

The contestant, who uses a text-to-speech app to deliver his jokes as he lives with cerebral palsy and is non-verbal, used autocorrect to his advantage during his set.

“Go fetch Sofía Viagra,” Belisle told his dog. “Oh, no. … I meant Sofía Vergara.”

He went on to say that he’d accomplished one of his onstage goals by “hit[ting] on Sofía.”

After Heidi Klum delivered her praise of his performance, she asked her fellow judge whether she’s ever been called “Sofía Viagra” before.

“No, they have called me like that before, but I’m single,” the actress, 51, said with a big smile as audience members cheered.

Page Six broke the news in July that Vergara and her husband, Joe Manganiello, are divorcing after seven years of marriage.

“We have made the difficult decision to divorce,” the estranged couple told us in a joint statement last month. “As two people that love and care for one another very much, we politely ask for respect of our privacy at this time as we navigate this new phase of our lives.”

Shortly after their split made headlines, Howie Mandel put the Golden Globe nominee on blast during the Aug. 22 episode of “AGT.”

The “Deal or No Deal” alum, 67, gave a competitor “one piece of advice” at the time, saying, “If you’re looking for eligible bachelors, you should’ve talked to Sofía because she’s in the market right now.”

While Vergara laughed off the comment, host Terry Crews said, “No, we are not doing that.”

The Emmy nominee and Manganiello, 46, have both been busy since calling it quits, making multiple appearances without their wedding rings.

Not only did the actor attend a Metallica concert and get a massive forearm tattoo, but Vergara has posted pictures from epic nights out.

After she showed off her bikini body on a trip to Italy, Vergara made headlines for sporting sexy outfits at Taylor Swift and Karol G shows.
