“Of course, we bonded immediately and you know, fell in love immediately,” Bass said, looking back at the night to when the two first met at an event. “I don’t know if I’ve told you the story about the next day, after I met you.”
As fans may recall, the two dated briefly during high school and Bass accompanied Fishel to her senior prom.
“I remember being in a hotel room, and me and Justin Timberlake were sharing a room for some reason and I remember… I had to leave the first voicemail for you so I got your number and I swear it took me about 45 minutes to figure out exactly what to say, so I didn’t sound too, like, ‘I’m trying too hard.'”
After, Bass spoke to Fishel about how she felt when he came out as gay. The star publicly came out in a cover story for People magazine in 2006.
