From the beginning of Season 1 of The Sex Lives of College Girls, Leighton, played by Reneé Rapp, looked to be the prototypical rich, preppy blonde girl who had never encountered a single ounce of pain.
Unbeknownst to us, Leighton had several layers – portions of herself she was hesitant to reveal to the students. Leighton’s struggle with her sexuality was quite relatable to the audience, bringing dimension to an otherwise bland character.
Short form: Reneé’s performance in The Sex Lives of College Girls, which has returned for a second season on HBO Max, blew us away. Given the show’s emphasis on romantic connections, we couldn’t help but speculate about Reneé’s real-life dating history.
Did you know that she is presently dating a Broadway star? Read on for information!
Reneé Rapp’s dating history
Before addressing Reneé’s Broadway lover, it is essential to remember that Reneé herself is a legitimate musical theatre queen. She got the Jimmy Award for “Best Performance by an Actress” in 2018 (essentially a junior Tony Award, with money!). A year later, she assumed the role of Regina George in the Mean Girls Broadway production.

She was also linked to fellow Broadway actor Anthony Cipriano in 2019, according to Showbiz Cast.
In 2019, Anthony made his Broadway debut as the original Phoenix in the musical Jagged Little Pill. In addition, he is slated to feature in the upcoming Disney Plus series National Treasure: Edge of History.
However, according to a story from Hollywood Mask, it appears that Reneé and Anthony broke up in 2021, given that Reneé was linked to Charlie Puth in 2022 — however their relationship has not been confirmed, so take all of this with a grain of salt!
Reneé felt more confident about her own identity after filming ‘The Sex Lives of College Girls.’
Reneé stated in an interview with Vulture that she could identify with her Sex Lives of College Girls role since she came out to her pals when she was younger.
When asked how she prefers to describe her sexual orientation, Reneé responded, “I typically just use the term homosexual. I am 21 years old, and there are times when I go to my partner and say, “We need to have a talk because I think I’m this.” And then I’ll return and say, “No, I’m this.” It’s a growing queer tale.”
Reneé stated in the same interview that she was thankful to be a member of a generation that had “more grace about finding your identity, how these things evolve, and appreciating that aspect of yourself.”
HBO Max is currently streaming the first two episodes of Season 2 of The Sex Lives of College Girls. Two new episodes will be released every Thursday until the two-part series finale airs on December 15, 2022.
