You don’t need to tell Lea Michele that planning a wedding takes up a lot of time — she’s at the beginning of it herself while also being on the LM/DC Tour with Darren Criss!The Glee alumna got engaged to Zandy Reich, president of women’s clothing company AYR, at the end of April 2018. The two were friends before they were romantically linked last year, and we suspect it won’t be long until she’s walking down the aisle.
“I feel more so than it being about colors, I think wherever we decide to have it will gravitate towards, like it just reflecting the vibe of the scenery,” Michele told Techpluz, at the Uplift Peak Preparatory graduation as part of the Whirlpool’s “Congrats, parents” campaign. “So it’s going to be more like, if we decide to go somewhere rustic, than it will be more of a rustic vibe. If it’s a little bit more modern, than it’ll be a little bit more sleek. So I think it’ll just gravitate towards wherever we end up doing our wedding.”
But before she dives into the nitty-gritty of wedding planning, she and Zandy are trying to figure out the best time and place for it to happen. “I’m Italian and my fiancé is Jewish, so I think it’s going to be about blending our cultures and making sure that we do things that really honor both of our heritages,” Michele said.
Not that she needs any help in the killer-bod department, but we’re sure that Michele’s upcoming nuptials keep her focused on her workouts.
“I love having my packages at SoulCycle, that really keeps me motivated to get to class,” she said. “If I buy the packages, then it’s like, OK, I have to go.”And when it comes to eating well, she lives for her NutriBullet. “I use that for everything. I use that to make soup, I make smoothies with it, I make hummus, like every single thing,” Michele said. “My NutriBullet is my go-to appliance that really helps me make all of my healthy, yummy meals.”
Maybe SoulCycle will open more international studios, because she said that her — and Darren Criss’ — goal is to take the show overseas. Fingers crossed!
