Lea Michele has finally spoken out about the death of her boyfriend Cory Monteith due to an overdose of heroin and alcohol. She told Peoplemagazine through her representatives:
Lea is deeply grateful for all the love and support she’s received from family, friends, and fans. Since Cory’s passing, Lea has been grieving alongside his family and making appropriate arrangements with them. They are supporting each other as they endure this profound loss together. We continue to ask the media to respect the privacy of Lea and Cory’s family.

You know who definitely does not need a memoir? Lea Michele. And yet! Harmony Books, a Random House division, disagrees. That’s right: Brunette Ambition, the “Glee” actress’s “part memoir, part how-to and part style guide,” will hit shelves next spring. In other news, everything is terrible and Lea Michele continues to prove that she is the worst. Who is going to buy this book? WHO? Best case scenario, she lets her boobs pen the entire thing.

I have this weird case of Lea Michele/Cory Monteith amnesia where I always forget they’re a real life couple, and whenever I see pictures of them together I call all my friends to tell them “Oh my god did you know those kids from ‘Glee’ are together in real life?!” And my friends are like, “Yes, everyone knows that, plus you called me two days ago to tell me the same thing.” So when I saw pictures of Lea Michele and Cory Monteith together at LAX, my first thought was, “Whoa, they’re together in real life?!” and my second thought was “Daaaaamn, cute outfit, Lea!” If you thought the same thing (about her outfit, that is), get all the pieces to steal her style, after the jump!

“These babies are great [points to her breasts]. They are my prizewinners. For a while they were out and about, showing off on Broadway every night, then they came to L.A. and were like, ‘No one else looks like me here!’ They were nervous to make their appearance but feel they’ve earned their place. So they asked if they could come out, and I was like, ‘All right, you guys.’ They definitely rose to the occasion, so I’m going to continue to give them more opportunities.”
Normally I think Lea Michele can be sort of insufferable (mostly because she was once rude to my friend at an audition, like, five years ago) but I have decided that I like anyone who refers to her breasts as “prizewinners” and gabs about them at length. Also, “boobs” is the last word that come to mind when I think about the goody-two-shoes “Glee” star, so I’m kinda excited to see what these prizewinners can do. [Marie Claire] [Photo: Marie Claire]
Yesterday, Ryan Murphy announced that, after the upcoming season, he’d be letting three of the principal characters of “Glee” go: Lea Michele (Rachel Berry), Cory Monteith (Finn Hudson), and Chris Colfer (Kurt Hummel). The reasoning? They would be graduating from McKinley High, and Murphy wants to keep the show true to life and not have students stick around for eight years. But apparently, these dismissals were news to the actors. Chris Colfer—who was just nommed for an Emmy for the show—said he found out via Twitter. “I didn’t necessarily know that it was going to be our last season next year,” he said. “I don’t necessarily want to leave so soon. But, I mean, it’s fine. It’s what it is. And all things come to an end.” [NY Daily News]
Not so fast. It appears that two of these three won’t be hitting the unemployment line. Keep reading »
Let’s hope Adele’s ex-boyfriend doesn’t catch wind of this and demand royalties. Last night, “Glee” did a little tribute to Adele. During the episode “Prom Queen,” Rachel Berry came face to face with her ex, Jesse St. James (played by Jonathan Groff), while belting out “Rolling in the Deep.” He naturally joins in, making us wish she’d forget about Finn already.
But this isn’t the first time “Glee” has saluted Adele this season. Keep reading »
“Everybody is convinced that Lea and I are in a relationship. There are supposedly forums with photos of us hugging at work or events. It’s funny, but flattering — Lea is beautiful. Since when can’t you hug your friends? … Once, we were flying from Sydney to Melbourne when a crazy guy grabbed my face and kissed me. Lea yelled and pushed him off of me. A mean stewardess who hadn’t seen it turned around and said, ‘You two be quiet!’ And Lea yelled, ‘No, that man just kissed my friend!’”
—Dianna Agron reveals that even though Quinn and Rachel are enemies battling it out for Finn’s affection on “Glee,” in real life her friendship with Lea Michele is tight. So tight in fact that many people assume they are a couple. I guess Santana and Brittany’s lesbian love story isn’t enough? [PopEater] Keep reading »
