It’s an UnREAL vs. The Bachelorette showdown.
And we know which side Scream Queen actress Lea Michele is on.
Before Monday’s finale of the latest season of The Bachelorette, Michele, who is a self-professed reality TV addict, admitted to reporters that she’s an even bigger fan of UnREAL, the Lifetime drama that spoofs the hit ABC reality dating competition.
“My new obsession? Are you watching UnREAL?” Michele, 28, asked Us Weekly reporters at a West Hollywood event for #ActuallySheCan. “I texted Shiri Appleby last night and I’m like, ‘Ummm, so you need to win like an Academy Award.’ She is so good!”
And don’t tell Kaitlyn Bristowe — Michele actually loves the new show so much, she’d rather watch it than the real thing.
“It’s switched me,” she told Us. “I’m less obsessed with The Bachelorette and I’m more obsessed with UnREAL. Emma [Roberts] told me about it. She was like, ‘You have to watch it!'”
The Glee alum also dished to Us Weekly about all the other shows she’s been watching lately.
“Right now, I love Naked and Afraid,” she shared. “I’m embarrassed. It’s so good.”
She’s also been caught up with offerings on Showtime and Bravo.
“I’m so deep into Ray Donovan right now, it’s crazy,” she dished. “Obviously, my Housewives. Right now, I’m watching New York and OC. Love my girl Carole! Carole Radziwill — she’s my girl, so I’ve got to watch her and support her! That’s my excuse. Ugh, it’s like amazing.”
And, of course, when she’s not watching reality TV, Michele said she’s indulging in another guilty pleasure: her love for Guy Fieri.
“Oh, and Food Network. Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” she said. “I think I would cry if I met Guy Fieri. Not Meryl Streep… Guy Fieri would be like, I would die I would be so happy.”
