The Cast Of Modern Family Spent Friday Evening TRAPPED In An Elevator!

Filed under: TV NewsOops!Silly!Party Poppin'Twitter

Oh MAN! We just don't get life sometimes!

So apparently, Modern Family stars Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet and Julie Bowen were attempting to do something really great last night by headlining a fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Club in Kansas City…when they ended up being TRAPPED inside the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel for nearly AN HOUR when it broke down with them in it!

Thankfully, the local fire department managed to eventually come to their rescue and they only ended up being an hour late to the event, but we're happy to see that the comedians made the best of their impromptu downtime by posting photos and videos of the ordeal on Twitter!

Here are some HIGHlights:

Ne-Yo Backs Boys & Girls Clubs Of America’s “Stop Bullying: Speak Up” Campaign

Ne-Yo Backs Boys & Girls Clubs Of America’s “Stop Bullying: Speak Up” Campaign

Ne-Yo is putting his fame to good work!

The R&B singer has joined the Boys & Girls Clubs of America's Stop Bullying: Speak Up campaign, which aims to empower foster youth to get on a path towards success.

Said Ne-Yo:

"With the Internet and YouTube, celebrities have become lazy and don't think they have to be role models today. But whether you want to be or not, kids will emulate you. Your life is not necessarily yours."

Ne-Yo had a rough childhood without a father figure, and he spent a lot of time at his local Boys & Girls club.

He continued:

"After my dad checked out, I grew up in a house with all women," he says. "I had no male figure to emulate on how to walk and talk like a man, so I had lots of feminine mannerisms. Kids were cruel all the way through high school. At first, I didn't know what 'gay' meant, but I knew it wasn't me."

The campaign to stop bullying continues, and it’s getting stronger!
