Ariel Winter and Sarah Hyland are not hoping to star on a reality show together when "Modern Family" ends, despite a made-up tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this bogus story. We're told there's no truth to it.
In a recent interview, "Modern Family" co-creator Steve Levitan said the show will likely end after its 10th season next year. Now an article in the latest issue of Star claims Winter and Hyland are worried about keeping their careers afloat following the finale of the hit ABC series. Their idea to stay in the spotlight? A reality series, according to an alleged source.
"Ariel and Sarah are convinced their lives are so funny, but producers don't agree," says the magazine's supposed insider. "No one is biting on giving them a show just because they're on a hit show." But Gossip Cop checked in with a rep for Winter, who exclusively assures us on the record that the tabloid's story is complete "nonsense." And a source close to Hyland similarly tells us that she and her co-star aren't pitching a reality show.
Winter and Hyland are actresses, not reality TV stars, and they don't have aspirations to become ones. Considering that the two will be coming off one of the biggest shows on TV, they'll have plenty of opportunities for work once their program ends. Regardless, Gossip Cop can confirm there's no truth to the outlet's article.
It should be noted, Star has proven to have very little insight into what goes on behind the scenes of the popular ABC comedy. Gossip Cop previously busted the tabloid for wrongly reporting that Winter was getting fired from "Modern Family." Shortly after the false story was published, executive producer Levitan exclusively told Gossip Cop, "Nothing could be further from the truth. Ariel is a beloved cast member and a crucial part of our show."
Also, Winter herself slammed Star on Instagram in 2015 after the unreliable outlet made up a story about the actress getting married as soon as she turned 18. The magazine has since published several bogus reports surrounding Winter's relationship with her boyfriend Levi Meaden. This latest article about the "Modern Family" sisters being eager to team up for a reality show is similarly untrue.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
