I don't want anyone thinking this is Sofia Vergara so let us get that out of the way right now. Sofia's background is VERY interesting though. Lets rewind a few years before Sofia burst on to the scene and talk about our actress. She is probably B list right now even though she barely works. She had that great of a career that has stretched a couple of decades. She had a great role and then disappeared and then popped back up into a great role when she was suggested by this A list mostly television actor and coke fiend. Apparently she had been a drug dealer of the actor and the only one he slept with up to that point. She always charged him though. He is used to that kind of thing.
Our actress supported herself through high school by selling drugs and when she graduated she decided that the best way to make a lot of money selling drugs was not to school kids, but to actors. She got some extra work and that led to her chance meeting with a producer who got her some small speaking roles in exchange for some sex and some drugs. Those few speaking roles led to her big break. During her entire run on the show she still sold drugs to supplement her income because she thought the show was going to be canceled and that she would be back on the street and have to find new connections. She says she made more selling drugs during the show than she did from the show, which is saying something.
On a show she was working on during the big run of the other show, she had a little scare and was forced to quit, despite being very popular because producers were scared of just how much she was selling and that the show would get taken down by bad publicity.
Apparently it was shortly after that experience that she finally decided she had enough money and a big enough name to not have to sell any longer. It didn't mean she stopped using though. She was always her biggest customer.
