Lea Michele Disses Real Housewives of New York's Aviva Drescher on Watch What Happens Live
Rachel Berry don't mess! Lea Michele threw shade at Real Housewives of New York's Aviva Drescher during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday, May 22. When asked what she thought of RHONY's current season, the Glee actress quickly made it known that she's not too fond of the reality star, who has been notably combative and intense this year.
"I love the New York housewives. Carole [Radziwill] is a very good friend of mine," the 27-year-old said. "I just told you [Andy Cohen] that we went out the other night and had the greatest time. So team Carole 100 percent."
"I don't know what I would do if I ever saw Aviva," she continued. "She would have to turn the other way." (Drescher and Radziwill's tumultuous relationship has played out dramatically during the Bravo show's sixth season. The battle came to a head when Drescher claimed to the rest of the ladies that Radziwill, a veteran journalist and author, used a ghost writer for her memoir, What Remains.
Although Michele would never want to cross paths with Drescher in real-life, she has thought of a tagline she would want to use if she ever were to join the RHONY drama. "[It would be] 'I mean what I say and I say what I mean,'" she joked. She'd throw in a little head shake for attitude, too!
The Brunette Ambition author also was put in the hot seat in Cohen's "Plead the Fifth" round. When asked if there was ever a storyline from Glee that made her think the show had "jumped the shark," she replied: "There's been some wacky stuff for sure, I think I've been lucky and my stuff has been pretty good."
Another asked if she would share something embarrassing that best friend Jonathan Groff does. The answer? He sometimes wakes up with a pile of drool on his pillow.
The game was easy breezy for the star, but she, like so many others before her, finally had to plead the fifth. When cornered about her past relationship with Glee costar Matthew Morrison (and how good he was in the sack!) she exclaimed: "My dad is right here! This is horrible. I plead the fifth."
As previously reported, the Bronx native admitted in her new book that she and Morrison, 35, dated before the FOX comedy. "When we shot the pilot, I met Cory Monteith, Kevin McHale, Amber Riley, and Chris Colfer for the first time," Michele wrote. "I had worked on Broadway with Jenna Ushkowitz and Matthew Morrison before. Matt had been a friend of mine for years, and in fact we'd actually dated back in the day for a Broadway beat." The actors were asked about relationship rumors back in 2010, but never fessed up at the time.
