Did Sofia Vergara Complete Promised Nudie Run?

Prior to Modern Family taking home the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy, the producers of the show ran an ad in Variety promising, “If Modern Family wins the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy, Sofia Vergara will run naked down Sunset Blvd.” Now that the show won, we want our nudie run. Sofia was asked about the ad and the run after the win and said, “Listen, I'm not afraid of anything. I'm Colombian.” While the print ad did say in tiny print that “cast member was subject to change,” Vergara guaranteed she’d make good on the promise. According to co-star Julie Bowen, Vergara may have already undertaken the naughty naked run. She told People magazine that Vergara went missing twenty minutes after the show had won and when she finally returned told her she "went to run nude down Sunset Boulevard. No one was there. So I did it. It's over … No one said I had to do it at a certain time." Here’s hoping they win again next year. [People]

Kate Gosselin Wants an Acting Career

It looks like Kate Gosselin has caught the acting bug. Fresh from her tongue-in-cheek appearance in the opening number of last night’s Emmy Awards, the reality television star has decided to pursue a career in scripted drama. According to PopEater, “Kate has made her mind up that she's going to be an actress.”  The mother of eight apparently worked the room making contacts and introducing herself to directors and producers. According to a close friend, Kate would love to be cast in Mad Men and thinks she could be the next Edie Falco or Tina Fey. She also "hopes her new profession will result in her finding a new man." Crazier things have happened in Hollywood. [PopEater]

One day after claiming that they were married, Drake and Nicki Minaj recently ended their apparent Internet prank on Twitter. "Dear Barbz," Minaj addressed her fans on Saturday. "My husband Drake and I have decided to have our marriage annulled. We'll maintain joint custody. Luv, HB." Just one day earlier, Drake and Nicki Minaj made their fans go bonkers by making them believe that they had gotten married. Minaj tweeted: "Yes, its true. Drake and I tied the knot.” A rep for Minaj told media outlets that the artists' self-started rumor was simply "Not true." The Internet can be really stupid sometimes.  [MTV]

NHL Goalie May Be On D.L. With a Mild Case of "Going to Prison"

Edmonton Oilers netminder Nikolai Khabibulin may be a little less valuable this year now that a DUI arrest may keep him off the ice for a few months. According to he "has been found guilty on charges stemming from a DUI arrest in February. The decision was handed down Friday, and the four-time All-Star could face up to six months in jail when he is sentenced Tuesday." The cellar-dwelling Oilers said they realize the severity of the crime but are working with him to find a solution. You know, like maybe calling a cab next time? [ESPN]

Roger Clemens Pleads Not Guilty, Then Fits in a Quick 18 Holes

What do you do when entering a plea to a case that could put you in prison for the next 30 years? If you're Roger Clemens, you hit the golf course. "Following his appearance in federal court in Washington on Monday, Clemens flew into Myrtle Beach, S.C., and traveled about 30 miles north to The Pearl golf course in Calabash," WTKR reported. Perhaps apologizing or trying to clear your name might have been the better option. [WTKR]
