Here’s something you may not have known: Actress Connie Briton (Tami Taylor 4eva) and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand were roommates in Beijing while studying Chinese back in college. Weird, right? But totally awesome, too! The pair became quick friends and, while appearing on Morning Joe on Tuesday morning, Connie opened up about some of their fun:
“We shared a dorm room in Beijing which consisted of a kind of concrete room and two straw mats. We were there over the summer, so we were there over Fourth of July, and the American embassy had a big Fourth of July party — and part of that was doing a lip sync contest, and Kirsten and two other girlfriends of ours did a Madonna song. Can’t remember exactly which one but let me just say, we won the contest!”
Ha! Now that’s something I think a lot of us would like to see! I love the idea of two kick ass ladies as young women, nowhere near the height of the awesome stuff they’d end up doing in life, teaming up – and in another country, no less!
