Sofia Vergara’s inaugural stint as guest-host of “Saturday Night Live” took full advantage of her sexy, Spanish-accented persona.

Of course, with Vergara, both qualities are pretty much unavoidable, so the decision was evidently made to write material for her that played up both of them.

Thus, you had the “Modern Family” star mangling various words in her “SNL” monologue, starring in a spoof Pantene commercial and teaching a sex ed class.

In addition to the sketches in which Vergara starred, another sketch drew the attention of Deadline.com, the tart showbiz Web site that apparently doesn’t approve of Bravo’s Andy Cohen, the flamboyant programming exec who also hosts Bravo’s late-night talk show, “Watch What Happens Live.” In this particular “SNL” sketch, Taran Killam spoofed Cohen, who Deadline called “the single worst thing airing on Bravo.”

But first, a couple of Sofia’s best from “SNL” this past Saturday on NBC, starting with …

Provocative Sofia Vergara teaching sex ed? Yes. And believe it or not, not everyone was paying full attention.
