Lea Michele shot scenes for Glee in the West Village neighborhood of New York City today, and the starlet was very animated when we snapped her gabbing away on her cell. She has a reputation for being a bit of a diva, but it looks like this was all for the cameras -- we doubt she'd really be mouthing off to someone over the phone like this, right?

Lea wrote on Twitter, "SO excited for this weekend! It's been my dream to shoot #glee in NYC and now this season we'll be shooting half of Rachel's story here! ... Early morning shooting #glee in NYC!!! So exciting!!!" So very exciting, indeed.

P.S. LOVE the knee socks!
