Jesse Lally, like his fellow castmates, has taken note of the attention the pop goddess and businesswoman has paid to the show on and off the red carpet. In fact, he’s actually reached out about it.

She hasn’t responded to my DMs, so just make sure you get that to her,” Jesse joked in an interview with The Daily Dish.

Asked if he had actually DM’d Rihanna, Jesse said, “Oh yeah, 100 percent. I said, ‘I saw the red carpet, thank you for your support.’”

But Rihanna, who has two kids, doubled down on her appreciation for the show: “I really am enjoying The Valley. They’re all parents but they’re all f-cking crazy at the same time. I can relate, totally.”

Asked by The Daily Dish if he’d seen the Rihanna moment, Jesse said yes.

“I did,” he said, adding that “it was super funny” to see her shouting everyone out.

Jesse admitted he felt compelled to DM her to thank her for her support. So far, his DMs haven’t sparked a response from Rihanna.

She hasn’t responded to my DMs, so just make sure you get that to her," he joked.
