Sofia Vergara has been named the highest paid US TV actress for a second year running.
The Modern Family star reportedly earned a whopping $30 million between June 2012 and June 2013, from both her role on the hit sitcom and numerous endorsement deals, which is more than double the income of her closest rival, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit actress Mariska Hargitay. The Colombian beauty is thought to have commanded big bucks from mega-deals with companies including Diet Pepsi and Kmart due to her popularity in Latin America, a growing market in the business world. Sofia, 38, has her own clothing line with supermarket chain Kmart - for which she was paid a staggering $7 million advance - as well as deals with the soft drinks company, furniture chain Rooms to Go, cosmetics brand Covergirl, Comcast, State Farm Insurance and more.
The brunette beauty's $30 million windfall puts her comfortably ahead of Mariska, 49, who earned $11 million over the last year, according to financial magazine Forbes.
Cher will be performing on the live finale of The Voice.
NBC revealed the star - who has not performed for 12 years - will sing on the talent show's season finale on June 18. The 67-year-old is going to make her TV comeback with "Woman's World," the first single from her upcoming album of the same name.
Cher took to Twitter to share her excitement with millions of her fans claiming "it should be fun."
The singer will be making her comeback in front of Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Shakira, and Usher who have taken their seat as judges on the show as mentors to the show's contestants. She last sang on TV at the 2002 VH1 Divas Las Vegas special, although she has appeared alongside Christina Aguilera in the 2010 film Burlesque and starred in documentary Dear Mom, Love Cher about her mother, Georgia Holt.

Matthew Perry doesn't want to make a Friends movie in case it is terrible.
The 43-year-old actor played Chandler Bing on the sitcom during its 10-year run and while he loved his time on the show, Matthew is worried a film would disappoint the fans. When asked if a Friends movie was on the horizon, Matthew told ABC News, "I don't think so. It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good. If we did a movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it."
Community fans will be happy to know that show creator Dan Harmon might return for next season.
Despite the fact that Harmon parted ways with the NBC show in a less-than-peaceful manner, he accidentally revealed to his Harmontown podcast audience that he was welcomed back into the
hit critically-acclaimed sitcom's fold.
"As soon as Dan said it, he asked that it be edited out of the podcast and it was just for us audience members (and I wasn’t going to say a word) but soon after that Dan said 'Ahhh #### it. I don’t care who knows!'" revealed a writer from Hollywookiee, who was present at the taping.
The writer also added that Harmon joked about only returning if Chevy Chase - who left the show during production of its fourth season - would agree to come back as well. Even if Harmon does return to writing behind the scenes, he didn't specify in what capacity; hopefully NBC will come out and give us such details now that Harmon has let the cat out of the bag.
Bill Hader has slammed Justin Bieber's turn as a host on SNL.
The former Saturday Night Live performer was unimpressed when the "Baby" hitmaker hosted an episode of the comedy sketch show because he arrived on set with a huge entourage. "Justin Bieber showed up with like 20 guys. He had a guy holding a slice of pizza. A guy holding a Diet Coke. You're trying to fight through all these people to get dressed," he told Howard Stern on his Sirius XM radio show.
While Bill hated working with Bieber, he praised Justin Timberlake for his down to earth attitude. Speaking about the "Mirrors" singer, he said, "He's great. Also, the guy doesn't show up with anybody. Timberlake, it was just him. He's a real class act, that guy."
Mel B says the new America's Got Talent judging panel is a "discombobulated" but "feisty" group.
The Spice Girls singer is to judge on the new season of the hit talent competition along with supermodel Heidi Klum and says the panel - which includes radio personality Howard Stern and comedian Howie Mandel - all have unique quirks that makes for an interesting dynamic on set.
"They're really nice actually. We all get on. We're a bit of a feisty panel. We all hang out afterwards; so far so good. [Howard] is completely inappropriate and out of everybody on the panel, I get along with him the most! Howard is a bit grumpy sometimes. Heidi Klum is very sweet; we're really good friends. Howie Mandel is a germaphobe - he rides around in his private jet, and then me and Heidi get to ride around in his private jet, too, but you still can't touch his hands! So between the four of us, it's a completely discombobulated group that somehow get on."

A mole told The Wrap that former panelist Christina - who left the show in 2012 after three seasons to promote her latest album LOTUS - is expected to return this autumn after signing a deal worth a rumored $17 million.
It is as yet unclear whether Cee Lo Green, who also departed last year, will be returning alongside Christina or whether his popular replacement, Usher, will stay on.
The current line-up of NBC's singing competition, which also features Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, has proved a hit with audiences and ratings are at an all-time high. Producer Matt Burnett confirmed Shakira's departure and explained change was a natural progress when working with successful recording artists: "Everybody can't coach for life because when you have people with current recording in the game, this is not their job. Their job is their fans and making music and being live, and so we knew from the beginning that this would happen, and we've had six coaches. They all have another life and their schedules."
The Office changed John Krasinski's life. The 33-year-old actor was a waiter before he landed the role of Jim Halpert on the NBC show and John - who is married to Emily Blunt - will always be grateful for what it did for him.
"To say this show gave me everything is the biggest understatement. I was a waiter before The Office so to me, this was a winning lottery ticket. Everything about my life has changed," he told Us Weekly.
John admits he is "emotional" about the end of the show, and while he doesn't want to say goodbye, is happy he and his cast mates have the opportunity to bring their storylines to a satisfactory conclusion: "I get so emotional to think that we're ending the show. But I'm unbelievably proud to be a part of one that actually gets to end. Instead of being asked to leave, I actually get a shot at bringing the whole story and all the characters to a close."
Kristen Wiig will return to Saturday Night Live as host.
The Bridesmaids actress - who spent seven seasons on the show before quitting last year - will host on May 11, with Vampire Weekend as musical guests. Kristen, hailed by showrunner Lorne Michaels as one of the top three or four cast members of all time, recently admitted she has felt lost since quitting SNL, explaining, "The show was seven years of my life and a six-day work week and you're constantly with your friends all day, all night. You sort of live and breathe the show. Then, when it's over, you kind of feel a little lost ... It was definitely an adjustment - even just the hours and [no longer] being in New York."
However, it is a busy for year Kristen, who stars in four movies this year, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, The Skeleton Twins, Imogene and Hateship, Friendship.
Meanwhile, Zach Galifianakis will host the May 4 SNL episode, while NBC has announced Ben Affleck will take charge for the season finale on May 18, with musical guest Kanye West.
