We hoped Pat Poisonpuss was just having an off day when our on-set source blabbed to us about how downright bitchy the diva was to her cast and crew in between takes.
But sad to say, looks like that's a normal day for P2. And now she isn't even trying to keep her nasty 'tude a secret, so why should we?
Yep, Lea Michele seems to be having a hard time separating the onscreen diva she plays from offscreen life, and it's getting on everyone's nerves.
Last week at the Time 100 Gala in New York, Lea totally turned off her fellow honorees by swapping spit with her BF the whole night, instead of socializing with the other influential guests.
And then to top matters off, the chick snapped at a photographer who had the nerve to take her pic then ask for her name. How dare he!
Lea said she was Sarah Palin and then, Taylor Swift, when photographer Patrick McMullan asked who she was. Reportedly, Patrick then told the pretty girl to ef off.
We rang up McMullan, who's a pretty famous celebrity in his own right (he snaps them all, trust), just to make sure. Here's what he had to say:
"Everything that's in that story is true, Lea giving me the fake names, but not what I said," P.M. told us. "I didn't say 'f--k you' to her, even though I wanted to say 'F--k you!' No, what I said was, 'Forget about it.' "
"Yeah...but you know what?" McMullan laughed. "Taylor Swift and Demi and Ashton were totally cool and nice at that event. They're classy."
We get the not-so-coded message, P. And when asked what Patrick will say to Lea the next time he sees her at an event (which, of course, he will), the photog said:
"Hey, I owe you a f--k you!"
So, listen, Lea—we love Glee as much as the next guy or gal. And we actually do love you, too—we think you're totally gorge and you've got talent galore. But c'mon, take a bite of that humble pie your costars are sharing (Jane Lynch, anyone?) and lose the 'tude.
