Without Ryan Murphy and Glee, would Lea Michele and Cory Monteith's real life romance have ever even happened?!
This was one of the subjects the TV honcho addressed during a recent Paley Center celebration held in his honor…
And yes, Mr. Murphy does take SOME credit for setting Monchele in motion!
"I directed them in their first scene together and they had that sort of chemistry that you can't fake, and I said, 'Uh-oh.' So I did kind of know. I take credit."
And bubbly brunette Lea tends to agree!
Glee's leading lady proclaimed:
"Yes, I would definitely say he is my matchmaker for sure."
We shudder to think what would have happened without Glee as a vehicle for their LURVE!
Well, ok, we're sure they would have found other fine partners, or maybe — serendipity be willing — they would have come together ANYWAY!
The universe is a great, big, mysterious mass of energy after all, and we totally believe that energy has magical properties! As Doris Day once sang, Que Sera, Sera!
