The bombshell mogul, 43, has partnered with houseware company SharkNinja to launch its brand-new Coffee Bar. Joe Manganiello's fiancee, who's also a passionate coffee lover (she hails from global coffee mecca Colombia), was invited by the brand to help create and develop a coffee machine that would extract full-bodied flavors. It's inside the test kitchen where she became a key part of the development process for the caffeine device.
"When [CEO] Mark [Rosen] told me about their plans to create the Ninja Coffee Bar, I knew I had to get involved from both a personal and business perspective," TV's highest-paid actress said about her latest business partnership, available at major retailers nationwide in Sept. She also revealed that the Ninja Coffee Bar serves iced coffee — directly from the machine. "I never even thought it was possible to make a great iced coffee at home!" Vergara shared.
Vergara, who earned a total of $140 million from 2013 to 2014, is known for her business prowess and acumen. In an interview with Glam Belleza Latina magazine in 2013, Vergara flat-out spoke about her love for amassing a fortune. "I’m not ashamed to say I love making money," she dished. "I like business, and the truth is I save way more than I spend. I invest. I plan for the future… I have a special eye for opportunities and work harder than anyone might expect. It is fun to shock people with my business ideas."
The Emmy nominee said sometimes it's hard for people to separate her from Gloria, her beloved on-screen Modern Family character. "Most people just see me as Gloria," Vergara told the mag at the time. "Most people are more comfortable with the notion of 'sexy bimbo.' And I have to admit that I’ve capitalized on that to negotiate a couple of times."
Vergara also has multiple endorsement deals with high-profile brands, including Rooms2G, Head & Shoulders, and a jewelry collection with Kay Jewelers.
