Here is what happened:

Joe Manganiello and Caitlin O’Connor made an appearance on the red carpet at the Children of Armenia Fund Gala in New York City. Joe, who was awarded the COAF Humanitarian Award, donned a black suit while Caitlin wore an emerald green corset gown. The couple posed together with their arms wrapped around each other’s waists. This public appearance occurred just five months after Joe filed for divorce from Sofía Vergara, following their seven-year marriage. The gala event sparked romance rumors between Joe and Caitlin, as they were photographed leaving a Gold’s Gym in Venice, Calif., and driving off together.

Sofía Vergara, on the other hand, has moved on as well, stepping out with orthopedic surgeon Justin Saliman in Los Angeles. Despite these public appearances, neither Joe and Caitlin nor Sofía and Justin have confirmed the status of their relationships. E! News reached out to their representatives for comment but has not received a response.

Sofía reflected on her “very difficult year,” referencing her divorce from Joe and the prolonged SAG strike in an interview with People. Despite the challenges, she remains optimistic about the future, saying, “I think everything is going to be okay and I’m very excited for next year.”
