Who Does Lea Michele Want Rachel to Date: Finn, Brody, or — Neither?
Is Lea Michele (Rachel) no longer on Team Finchel? It certainly sounds like the Glee star has lost a bit of faith in the on-and-off couple — at least temporarily.
Lea spoke to E! Online, and when she was asked whether she thought Rachel should choose Finn (Cory Monteith) or Brody (Dean Geyer), she gave an answer that was borderline shocking. "I think it might be interesting to see Rachel alone for a while," Lea said.
Say what?! This answer was surprising for a number of reasons, not only because Finchel are so adorable together, but also because Lea has made it clear how much she enjoys working opposite her real-life boyfriend Cory Monteith. So what gives?
Thankfully, Lea clarified her answer by saying that she doesn’t necessarily think that Finn and Rachel should split up for good. “I think that Rachel and Finn are meant to be,” she said. “I'm a Finchel forever fan, obviously, but I think it's interesting seeing her with guys.”
Lea also admits that Brody could be good for Rachel because “he’s really confident in his own skin and he's more like Rachel than Finn is.” That said, Lea wants Rachel to just have some time to herself. “I really think it'd be interesting to see her just single in the city,” said Lea.
We agree it would be fun to see Rachel take a little “me time,” especially now that her bestie Kurt has moved to the city with her. Then again, the idea of Finn and Rachel remaining apart for too much longer could send us into withdrawals.
