“Uhhhhhhh … no!” she responded when asked if she’s attending Michele’s upcoming nuptials. “But I wish her the best though.”

The Scream Queens vet, 32, announced her engagement to fiancé Zandy Reich on Instagram in April 2018 after more than a year of dating.

“Yes,” she captioned a photo of her 4-carat sparkler covering her face alongside a ring emoji.

Michele revealed that she FaceTimed her and Riley’s former castmate Darren Criss and his now-wife Mia Swier, who tied the knot on February 16, shortly after Reich, 36, proposed via Instagram Stories.

The Broadway star’s happy news also received a “like” from Glee’s Naya Rivera, who told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen on February 6 that she didn’t have any bad blood with the actress, despite years of gossip suggesting otherwise.

“I don’t think there was, like, any beef,” the “Sorry” singer told a fan, adding, “It’s a good ring!”

As for Riley, she said she’s still close with “pretty much everyone” else from the show — including cocreator Ryan Murphy, whom she had the chance to catch up with recently.

“I literally just saw him two weeks ago … I hadn’t seen him in such a long time,” she told Us. “We just sat and caught up and shot the breeze, you know? It’s, like, you pick up where you leave off. He still sees us as kids. I’m 33 years old and he’s like, ‘What’s up, kids?’ That’s just Ryan.”

Michele has reportedly asked the American Horror Story cocreator to officiate her wedding.
