THE ‘Magic Mike XXL’ star Joe Manganiello who dropped out of upcoming History Channel show ‘Six’ last week because of his undisclosed medical problem and wife Sofia Vergara had been due to appear as honorary co-chairs at a benefit for Stuart House Benefit, a facility which help victims and those affected by sexual abuse, but the pair cancelled their appearance because the actor is still “recovering”.
John Varvatos hosted the event and had invited the couple to co-chair the evening in West Hollywood because of the 39-year-old star’s long support of the facility. The fashion designer sent his well-wishes to his friend but admitted he did not know what the problem is.
He told ‘Entertainment Tonight’: “Joe’s been a big part of what we’ve done over the years. He’s been a great personal friend. He’s been involved in all of our the last four or five years our Stuart House events. Basically they just couldn’t make it because Manganiello is recovering.
“I don’t know a lot about it other than that he is had a little bit of a health problem. We wish him the best. We thank him for all his support that he is given us and most importantly, to get well soon because he’s such a wonderful guy.” – Bernama
