New "Modern Family" Pics! Claire Freaks Out, Then Shovels With Cam (Photos)

Eric Stonestreet offers advice to Julie Bowen.

Okay, this should be…um…interesting!

Just-released photos from a recent filming of Modern Family show that Claire (Julie Bowen) and Phil Dunphy (Ty Burrell) are at it again. In front of a building (possibly a restaurant?), Claire is seen screaming in frustration at her husband over something. Perhaps he forgot to run an important errand – or maybe he bought another impractical sports car.

Whatever it is, Claire somehow finds herself out in a rocky field later in the day with brother-in-law Cam (Eric Stonestreet), who’s dressed as a cowboy complete with fabulous aqua kerchief. They do some shoveling together before having a heart-to-heart that ends in a hug.

UPDATE: Seems that Cam and Claire are so happy in the end that he spins her around in an impromptu dance!

The show’s situations may not always be true-to-life, but the family relationships hit the mark.

See the pics here!
