Kate Hudson May Not Think Lea Michele Is A Bitch, But I Sure Do

By  | 

Oh, Lea Michele. You foolish foolish girl. Even after all these years of gossip about your absurdly diva-esque behavior, you still think you can talk us out of our opinions about you with a single magazine interview. How adorably optimistic of you. What a precious precious star you are.

Lea Michele is the January covergirl for Marie Claire, and she has lots of really cute, bubbly opinions and adorable tidbits to share with you, all of which I'm sure are totally real and not at all made up. Here's what she has to say about her (totes un-earned!) reputation as a high-maintenance diva:

“I am a very outspoken person, and if something makes me uncomfortable, you will know that it makes me uncomfortable, but that's as far as it goes…I can assure you that [the diva rumors] aren't real. It's super-frustrating sometimes, and I used to fight back, but now I feel like, You can think what you want about me — that's OK. I have the most amazing fans, friends, and family members who have stood by me, and I know that my cast and crew really enjoy working with me. That's all that matters.”


See, you guys? Everyone really likes Lea Michele. Nobody doesn't like her. Everyone from her amazing friends and family and fans to her amazing cast and crew members really enjoy working with her because her amazing personality is so amazing. And those quotes from Kate Hudson you heard about, calling her guest-star stint on Glee a nightmare? Nope. Absolutely not. Didn't happen. According to Lea Michele, Kate actually called Lea when the rumors came out and said:
“I just heard about that, and it f**king sucks. I want you to know I think you're amazing.”
At which point, Lea says:
“[Kate went] straight to the top of my list because it was so classy of her to take a minute to [address the rumor], even though we both knew it was the biggest piece of crap in the whole world. I told her, ‘I love you, and I adore you. Thank you so much for creating a human moment with me.'”
Yes. You're right. That sounds like a totally real conversation that absolutely took place and was in no way fabricated by you or motivated by guilt or publicists, if it did in fact happen.
Okay. So let's pause for a second and talk about the fact that I'm clearly biased against Lea Michele. Because I am, I'll admit it. And maybe this cutesy little interview would convince another writer that they'd be wrong about her, but that other writer probably didn't have to watch their colleague wait on her at their restaurant job. Because I did that, and OH MY GOD SHE IS SUCH A DIVA. She sent food back, argued with the server, and ate fish even though she swears up and down that she's a vegan. She sent her father back to knock on the kitchen window looking for their food less than twenty minutes after ordering well-done fish, complained about and laughed at her extremely competent server, and left a 10% tip even after insisting that items were removed from her bill. This. Girl. Is. A bitch. Sorry I'm not sorry.
So keep splitting your time between doing adorable interviews and trying to get my coworkers fired, Lea. I'll just be here holding it down for the normal folks who don't walk into restaurants like we shit ponies and rainbows.
