Actress Idina Menzel is bi-coastal these days: she and husband Taye Diggs live in an “eclectic” apartment in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood and have just bought a house in Los Angeles to accomodate both of their work schedules.
Taye will continue to shoot ABC’S Private Practice, and Idina has a recurring role on Fox’s Glee. Idina loves this role because she gets to go back to her Broadway roots: “I get to sing some great music, some old Broadway kind of stuff and some new takes on a contemporary song. And there’s definitely some surprises and a twist.”
Despite her “jonesing” to return to the stage, don’t look for Idina to immediately return to the spotlight. Right now, she’s relishing being a mom to 8-month-old Walker, who is the “spitting image” of papa Taye: “I like putting Walker down to sleep every night. That’s the thing that would bother me.”
