Julie Bowen on ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ reveals she’s producing ‘comedy for ABC about female friendships’ after ‘Modern Family’
Two-time Emmy award-winning star of 'Modern Family', Julie Bowen, revealed on 'The Wendy Williams Show' she "started mourning" from the first day of shooting the last season of 'Modern Family'. "I started sobbing and I thought 'this is going to happen the entire season'. But since then I just shoved it down. I turned on my German, my inner German."
When Williams asked Bowen, who plays Claire Dunphy, what she would take away from the sets, she said, the not-so-fancy artwork "reminds me so much of it [time spent on the show]". She said she had taken a fancy to the set of "ugly plates" hanging on the wall of the Dunphy house as the time to say goodbye drew near. "I've always hated them but now I want to take one home," Bowen said.
With the show coming to an end, Bowen will have more time on her hands Williams pointed out and asked about what she planned next. Bowen revealed she was taking a deep dive into producing shows: "I am going to produce a comedy for ABC about female friendships."
She also has some other irons in the fire that are "hush-hush", according to the 'Modern Family' star. However, her dating life, in comparison, has been pretty quiet by choice. She revealed that since her divorce, she had been set up with the same man several times by a friend but she had bailed on him every time.
Her main reason was that her celebrity might lead to needless speculation even with a simple "spaghetti dinner date". It is a complication she would rather avoid. Instead, her time is taken up raising her twin sons (aged 10) and her older son, 12, who she says has "started to smell", admitting being a mom was a full-time job.
‘The Wendy Williams Show’ airs every weekday at 11 a.m. PT.
