Did you find yourself fawning over the smart, spunky Carole Radziwill during her rookie season of Real Housewives of New York this year? So did Lea Michele, who found herself a bit starstruck with Carole (via phone) recently.
As the cover girl for the new issue of Marie Claire, Michele was being interviewed when the author suddenly got a phone call -- and her screen illuminated with Carole's name. The rest unfolds in the pages of the magazine:
"No!" Michele shrieks, her enormous brown eyes growing round as saucers. "OK, this is crazy. Can you please pick up?" Michele, it turns out, is a huge RHONY fan. I hand her the phone, and she gushes, "Carole, don't be embarrassed. I have to say, I think you're the greatest . . . Are you crazy?! It's going to happen. You officially have a stalker." When she hangs up, she immediately texts Glee costar Chris Colfer, her Housewives-viewing buddy, to tell him she's found an "in." Two minutes later, he responds: "You're crazy. Shut up. I am so excited. Cannot wait. Amazing."
It's no shocker that Lea's a Bravo fan (she's a Watch What Happens Live legend), but little did we know she had such affection for our newest RHONY 'Wife. Could there be a Glee cameo in Carole's future? Or vice-versa with Lea on RHONY? Only time will tell, but this sounds like the beginning of a wonderful friendship.
