Lea Michele, Glee

If Rachel Berry isn't careful, she could end up as Glee's resident man eater.

Not only has she already locked lips with Finn and Puck, but she's got another suitor in the wings...

When the series returns next month, you'll see—and hear!—Rachel perform a goose-bump-inducing duet of Lionel Richie's "Hello" with Jesse St. James, the lead singer of a rival high school glee club played by the fantastically handsome Jonathan Groff.

Unfortunately, Lea Michele, who plays Rachel, wasn't able to attend this weekend's Paley Festival Glee panel (moderated by yours truly), but no worries. We caught up with Michele last night at the CAA cocktail party for the GLAAD Media Awards to get her take on her television alter ego's many romances.

It seems like everyone on Twitter wants to know if Rachel ends up with Finn or Puck. So, what's the deal?
I think you'll see a little bit of both in the back nine. But I do think Rachel's heart is with Finn. But, as you know, I have my new love interest—Jesse St. James!

So what's it like kissing your real-life best friend? I mean, you're kind of used to it after doing it every night when you were costarring on Broadway in Spring Awakening?
It had been a really long time, so it was interesting when we had to do it for the first time on Glee. But we had also done it so many times before that we sort of just jumped right back into it.

Idina Menzel is also guest starring on the show, but she doesn't sing in her first episode. When will she?
You'll have to see [laughs]. Of course, she has to sing. We haven't done anything together, but I hope we will.

P.S. There'll be plenty of Glee stars on hand when the GLAAD Media Awards are handed out in L.A. on April 17.
