It’s one thing to whore yourself out to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner year after year because you star in the hit ABC series “Modern Family.” It’s quite another to come here and not flaunt your whoring capabilities to their fullest.
But Jesse Tyler Ferguson managed just that over the weekend when he attended the White House Correspondents’ Dinner and attended the parties surrounding it. On Friday night he was spotted mingling by the bar at the TIME-People party at the St. Regis. But when approached for even a single question from a reporter, he declined, saying he was not allowed to do any interviews that did not involve ABC.
Not allowed? Partygoers, especially those from competing networks, found this odd. Nonetheless, he did permit himself to wave and say “hi.”
