Lea Michele emerged from quarantine for the first time after being at the center of a social media storm last month when she was attacked by some in the industry that have worked with her. But did so just as another former colleague went public with negative comments about the "Glee" star.

"The pregnant 33-year-old actress has kept a relatively low profile for three weeks after her controversy but was seen on a walk in Los Angeles with husband Zandy Reich on Thursday," reported the Daily Mail.

But a former Broadway co-star from more than a decade ago came forward to join the ranks of those who have slammed Michele.

Craig Ramsay, who stars on "Newlyweds: The First Year," visited the podcast "Behind The Velvet Rope with David Yontef," and didn't have fond memories of Michele when they worked together on "Fiddler on the Roof" in 2004, reports ETCanada.

"I just didn't want to hear Lea Michele's name in this interview," he said in the podcast. "At all! I think she's a despicable, horrible human being. I think she has lost touch with reality. We were in 'Fiddler' together. Rosie is awesome. I still talk — she is a huge mentor and I respect her — how she has been able to survive and thrive with all the nonsense that was tossed at her. As far as Lea Michele is concerned, I think she is one of the most entitled people I have ever come across in this business!"

"I was there when she got the call of, 'I got 'Glee,' ' and I think the entitlement just came over her body. She was possessed with this and from that moment on — cause she moved to L.A. the same moment I did from New York — and I cared for her greatly, but the amount of entitlement... I have never seen the likes of it, especially Broadways. You can't mess with Broadway. You can get a reputation very quick if you don't respect where you come from."

He continued, "And she is talented, don't get me wrong. She is more talented than the gigs she did the last ten years, but that doesn't matter if no one wants to work with you."

Since appearing on Broadway, Ramsay has become "an internationally recognized fitness expert, exercise programmer and author known for his unique, effective and entertaining fitness methods," reads his IMDB page.

He met his husband Brandon Libertini, a celebrity hairstylist in Hollywood, nine years ago. After their marriage, they appeared on Season 3 of "Newlyweds: The First Year" in 2016. He also paired with Liberati to create "Fit and Phab," a one stop shop for all your beauty, fitness and wellness needs.

Craig's latest Fitness series is "7 Day Potty Training: A Crappy Workout" on YouTube.
