Illustration for article titled Connie Britton Once Lip Syncd Madonna with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand

It's a little-known fact that Connie Britton (a.k.a. Rayna Jaymes, a.k.a Tami Taylor) was once college roommates with New York Senator and the awesome Kirsten Gillibrand. The pair shared a room one summer while studying Chinese in Beijing.

Earlier today on Morning Joe, Britton told Mika Brzezinski, "We shared a dorm room in Beijing which consisted of a kind of concrete room and two straw mats.”


She also talked a little about the hijinks they got up to, saying, "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!"

Video or it didn't happen, Mrs. T. (Or did Coach record over it for one of his game tapes?)
