LOS ANGELES (CBS4) — Ed O’Neill’s TV wives have gotten progressively younger with each TV series. Both Katey Sagal of “Married With Children” and Sofia Vergara of “Modern Family” spoke at O’Neill’s star ceremony on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Sagal complimented him, saying he was down-to-Earth. But added she couldn’t wait to walk on his star. Vergara said, as a child in Colombia, watching “Married With Children,” she couldn’t believe she’d grow up to marry Al Bundy.READ MORE: Inter Miami CF Unveils 'La Palma' 2021 Secondary Jersey, As Team Gets Ready For 2021 MLS Season
