Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Glee’s Chris Colfer Hacked But Isn’t Alone

When Glee‘s Chris Colfer’s Twitter account was hacked fans went crazy. Why? Because the hacker tweeted that Colfer would be leaving Glee and that was hit with a big, resounding, NOPE, from Twitter-land, which then carried over to internet-land as a whole.

His manager has sense released a statement that he will indeed be returning for the final season of the show on Fox. The actor has already signed a contract so that he can complete season six. The actor, on a mid-Atlantic flight, was unable to update Twitter due to lack of Wi-Fi.

Studio 20th Century Fox Television also released a statement letting fans and viewers know that he will be on the next season of Glee. “We’ve been alerted that Chris Colfer’s Twitter account has been hacked. Rumors of his dismissal from Glee could not be further from the truth. We love Chris and look forward to working with him again this season.” The offending tweet has since been removed.

But apparently, Colfer wasnt’ the only Glee star whose Twitter account was hacked. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lea Michele’s account was also hacked, tweeting a pregnancy announcement. Lea’s publicist confirmed that the tweet was due to a hack.

Colfer himself returned to his Twitter account to renounce the previous tweet, something he wasn’t able to do at first due to his lack of internet access.

And there you have it. Chris will be back. Lea is maybe not pregnant (hey, the publicist said she’d been hacked. I didn’t hear a pregnancy renunciation.) All is right with the world.

Lea Michele Covers Seventeen Magazine: Talks Life After Death Of Boyfriend Cory Monteith


Lea Michele appears on the cover of Seventeen’s April 2014 issue (on stands March 11th). In her interview with Seventeen, she discusses life after the death of boyfriend and Glee costar, Cory Monteith, and how she plans to follower her passion and find lasting happiness after heartbreak. She proves that even when your life is turned upside down, you have the strength within to find your happiness and live your best life.


Highlights via Seventeen magazine:

On rumors of a Glee spin-off: “Let’s do it. I think it could be Rachel living in New York and working on Broadway!”

On how she plans to follow her passion and find lasting happiness:
· Figure out who you are: “I set out to make a really pop-heavy album that was fun and empowering – I love Katy Perry and Kelly Clarkson! But then I found myself picking and writing these songs that were very emotional and dramatic. Louder has songs that express extreme love and some pain. I look at it and think, That was my year. I didn’t record any songs that I didn’t completely relate to.”

· Find true love: “I only have happy memories of Cory. He was not his addiction – unfortunately, it won. But that wasn’t who he was. Cory made me feel like a queen every day. From the minute he said, ‘I’m your boyfriend,’ I loved every day, and I thank him for being the best boyfriend and making me feel so beautiful.”

· Get body confident: “I’m very comfortable with my own body. I come from Broadway – everybody’s naked on Broadway. I like to think of myself as more granola. I’m not going to run around naked or anything like that unless I’m at my own home. Today, I walked into my backyard and was standing out there naked for a while. Don’t tell: My neighbors will freak out!”

Lea Michele Would Take A New Job As An X-Factor Judge


Via Extra TV

“Extra’s” Terri Seymour caught up with Lea Michele on Wednesday at part one of “The X Factor” season finale.

Demi Lovato indeed confirmed she is leaving as a judge to concentrate on her music, and Michele revealed she would be interested in being a replacement, if creator Simon Cowell asked.

The “Glee” star laughed, “I probably will stalk him because I’m such a fan, and I think he is so awesome! FOX is my family; this is my home… If “X Factor” wants to have me, I’m around.”

Lea also told Terri that she and her late boyfriend Cory Monteith did get matching tattoos a few years back.

Michele recalled, “I remember we were at the Teen Choice Awards, a couple of years ago, and you said to me, ‘What is this rumor that you and Cory have gotten secret tattoos together?’ and I turned beet red and I was like, ‘What do you mean, what are you talking about… How did you know?!’” Terri smiled, “I just knew!” Lea responded, “Now you have the exclusive on ‘Extra’!”

The “The X Factor” finale concludes tonight on FOX!

Lea Michele Is BFF’s With Kate Hudson

ELLE Dec '13 Cover

On stands November 19th, ELLE’s December issue features a sexy Lea Michele who gives an incredibly candid interview about how she’s coping with Cory Monteith’s death, her role on Glee and how she started out in the entertainment industry. Check out the highlights below.


On how she’s handling Cory Monteith’s death:

“I never thought I would be in this position in my whole life. Now that I am in this position, you can choose to rise, and that’s what I’m going to try to do. I know that Cory would want nothing more than for me to take this situation and use it to help people.”

On relying on friend Kate Hudson during the difficult time after Monteith’s passing:

“I called [Kate Hudson] and said, ‘I don’t know where I’m going to go because my house is swarmed [with reporters].’ She was like, ‘Oh, you’re going to stay at my house.’ Like it was nothing. No one knew I was there. I’ll never really be able to thank her, truly, for what she did for me.”

On taking time to heal:

“It’s very hard. And you have to be very strong to come out of this alive, but I think by doing the best for myself, by showing that you don’t have to lose yourself, maybe someone else will feel some sort of strength or comfort.”

On why she never expected her career in television to take off:

“I was told my whole life I would never do television because I was too ethnic. I was 100 percent focused and ready to be the best in the world [of Broadway] I was in.”

Lea Michele’s Tearful Farewell to Cory Monteith on ‘Glee’

In case you missed the Glee tribute show for Cory Monteith, you missed Lea Michele belt out a very stirring rendition of Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love.” But do not fear, we have it here from our good pals at Hulu.

The entire cast remembered Finn and Cory Monteith in the most beautiful way. It didn’t come off corny or cheesy, but the cast presented the show in a way that stayed true to the show and the way Cory would have wanted it.

Yes, there were moments of tears and sadness, but there were definitely some happy moments as well.

This Lea Michele performance was a hard one to watch for sure. Get the tissues out, peeps. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Dianna Agron not Invited to Glee Tribute Episode?


Apparently, there’s no love lost for Dianna Agron on the set of Glee. The former cast mate was snubbed (aka: not invited) to the show’s tribute episode, dedicated to the late Cory Monteith, and now, according to a “high-level source” from the show, the answer is simple.

They just don’t like her.

“It’s shocking, because even though she’s not contracted for this season, many other actors returned to pay tribute to Cory..even the ones with less of a story connection to Finn than Dianna [sic] had,” the source told RadarOnline.

He’s referring to the fact that Agron’s character once played Finn’s girlfriend on the show, making the fact that she was left out of the tribute episode all the more strange.

So what’s the problem?

That same source says that Monteith’s girlfriend, Lea Michele, along with the show’s co-creator, Ryan Murphy, “intensely dislike Dianna and have both worked to marginalize her as much as possible.”

Something about her not being a “team player” and concern she’d be “sharing the glory for this very special episode.”

Of course, I feel like there’s more to the story than this, because this reasoning seems petty. And, it feels like it’s an unnecessary distraction from a very heartfelt episode. None of the outside noise matters- or rather, it shouldn’t.

Corey Monteith Found Dead in Vancouver

Corey Monteith, co-star of ‘Glee‘, who has been very upfront and forthcoming about his struggles with addiction, has died in Vancouver yesterday, according to sources. Vancouver police were called to the scene after hotel workers at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel contacted them when he did not check out on time. Details are still emerging, but early report had Monteith in his room with some friends earlier and then hitting the town and returning later alone to his room.

Monteith, who has been dating his co-star Lea Michele for over a year, had just recently finished a second stint in rehab.

An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.

Corey Monteith was 31.

Our condolences to his family.

Cory Monteith Checks Into Rehab

Cory Monteith of Glee fame has recently checked himself voluntarily into a rehabilitation center and made a statement through his representative to the press about his stint.

Monteith “has voluntarily admitted himself to a treatment facility for substance addiction,” his publicist told People magazine. “He graciously asks for your respect and privacy as he takes the necessary steps towards recovery.”

Monteith plays the role of Finn Hudson in the ensemble Fox series. His co-star on the show and girlfriend in real life, Lea Michele, has pledged her support for him during this time. This is not his first time struggling with substance abuse problems. The 30-year-old actor has discussed his previous bouts with substance abuse over the years. In an interview dating back to 2011, he came clean about his rehab stint at the age of 19. He will miss the last two episodes of the current season of Glee as he starts rehabilitation.

Kudos to Monteith for voluntarily facing his demons. If only other celebrities would be so adult-like to confront their problems head on instead of traipsing off to South America to drown in more sweet nectar and ‘ski’.

LACOSTE L!VE, the younger-minded, fashion conscious crocodile, geared up to host a chic pool party, presented by HTC, a leading designer of smartphones like the new HTC One.

Guests were re-fueled by delicious gourmet treats from the famous “The Slice Truck” and “Don Chow Tacos” food trucks from LA or cooled down with FIJI Water Shaved Ice and Patrón Tequila popsicles. LACOSTE and HTC also featured additional activities such as Giant Twister, speed boat racing, Superbooth fun, panoramic photos by TourWrist, a phone charging station, and more.

Lauren Conrad and Lea Michele looked as though they were forced to stand by each other for a say-cheese session. You know Lauren is trying to fight off an eyeroll!

I must say Diane Kruger is looking especially foxy, so much so that I didn’t even recognize her. Joshua must be doing something right! Werk it, girl! (FASHION FYI: Diane is sporting a LACOSTE Spring/Summer 2012 Cotton Colorblock Dress, while Lea works the Spring/Summer 2012 red bikini, belted cotton cover-up and watch.

“New York, u know how much I love you. But if I see another horse & carriage struggling in this winter weather I may not be able 2 be here. Please tweet to Mike Bloomberg if you agree that horse and carriages should no longer be on the busy streets of NYC. And let’s end this. Mike Bloomberg, please listen to the thousands of people who are saying that they no longer want horse & carriage rides in this city.”

Quote of the Day: Lea Michele

“When Cory and I were doing our scene, the crew came up to us and they were like, ‘Look. We just want you to know that Darren and Chris were really hot. They went for it’. So I was like, ‘Listen, Monteith. We’ve got to do better than them. We’ve got to turn these people on! And we have to top those boys!’ Poor Cory. But it was great. It really was.”
