Lea Michele Addresses Those Pesky Glee Rumors By Diverting The Entire Conversation

By  | 


Lea Michele David Letterman 5-16-2014I know I'm going to get a lot of flack for this from Lea Lovers United, so I'll be sure to state my solitary pro-Lea point early on in this post.  Deal?  Good.  Okay.  So Lea Michele was a guest on The Late Show With David Letterman last night, and of course he got right down to business and asked her directly about the “Glee feud” rumors.  While I'm sure he primarily did this because he lives for salacious, shitty teen show gossip, I'm assuming he also asked her because a lot of inquiring minds want to know.

“It's really unbelievable the amount of things that can just be completely made up. And it's really frustrating. The way people like to pit women against each other… is really annoying and it's sad.”

Okay, I see your point.  And I agree, you don't as often see tabloid covers or gossip blogs shouting about fights between male co-stars.  (Just holding up my end of the deal here.)  Buuuuut because rumors can easily be based on just a smidge of truth, I'm gonna need to hear more from you on the possible blow-out with Naya Rivera who was maybe fired for five minutes before being un-fired.  Crazy!  So could you please clarify?

“For me, if there were ever really a cat fight on the show, you'd know about it because I'd get a ring, and I'd put Jell-O in it, and I would make it fun for everyone and it would be super hot.”

Oh.  Um, okay.  Great. You do you, Lea.  Even if it means trying desperately to divert the attention away from the reports of you being uppity/spoiled/fake/annoying/mean by pretending you're down with cliche '80s frat party shenanigans.  I was with you on the woman-power thing until you totally blew it by being all “I'M SUPER HOT EVERYONE!”

Is it just me, or is she super fidgety during this entire interview?  Rubbing her leg, toying with her Heidi hair, etc. I think it's either the behavior of someone who is uncomfortable with the topic, or uncomfortable because she's lying.
