You can't say Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson don't have chemistry, on screen or off the set!
The Modern Family stars love to love (and hate!) each other every week on TV, and now that's carried over to the real world with one hilariously devious prank gone wrong, forcing Stonestreet to apologize to an innocent (and famous) unintended victim!
It all started a few weeks ago, when Ferguson dished to Meredith Vieira that Stonestreet was behind a cunning little plot, sending sex toys to Ferguson's home:
"[Stonestreet] was sending me toys that he found on the Internet and labeling, with my name on it — not any sort of alias — to my house. The worst part was he called me one day and said, ‘Did you get this package?' And I said, ‘No, but sometimes my neighbors get my mail.'"
Ouch! But what's funnier than imagining Ferguson having to have that conversation with a neighbor?!
Ohhh… maybe if that neighbor were Jim Parsons!

Yep! It turns out the Big Bang Theory star lives next door to Ferguson, and often receives his mail in error! Ferguson explained:
"So I had to go over to Jim's house and go, ‘Hey, did you receive anything in the mail?' He said, ‘No, I didn't. What was it.' I ended up telling him what it was but see, the thing is… I usually receive Jim's New Yorker Magazine. Oh God, how embarrassing! I receive his high-brow magazine and he's receiving lewd things in the mail that he thinks I ordered. Which I didn't."
Now, it looks like Stonestreet is finally 'fessing up to the whole mess, telling reporters:
"First of all, I just want to officially apologize to Jim Parsons for being all of a sudden mentioned in this horrible prank. He's like, 'I didn't ask for this.' I feel bad for Jim in all this. He's the real victim here."
LOLz! Parsons never asked to be involved in this quarrel!

Stonestreet continued, clearly feeling just awful about his sex toy silliness gone wrong as Ferguson forced him to make amends with Parsons:
"That day this happened, I was dressed up as Fizbo the clown, so [Ferguson] made me send Jim a little iPhone video saying, 'Hey Jim, Eric Stonestreet here — Fizbo the clown! I sent Jesse a sex toy, and if it got to you, it's my fault. He didn't order the sex toy.' I had to do a disclaimer for Jesse, but as Fizbo the clown."
There's only one more thing left to discover… what exactly was the sex toy?!
