The stars' publicists were quick to deny the statements, but there's no news on whether the hacker or hackers were found.
Has someone gone on a Glee-themed Twitter hacking spree? Lea Michele has become the second Glee cast member to have her account hijacked, after Chris Colfer’s Twitter shocked fans with a fake announcement of his departure from the show. The message posted to Lea Michele’s account was more personal than Colfer’s, reading: “Before this gets out to the media, I would like to announce to my fans that I am pregnant #BabyBoy,” read a message posted on her Twitter account.
Lea Michele - (probably) not pregnant.
Before the hoax got out to too many people, however, Michele’s quick response team (aka her publicist) came out with the clarification that the star’s Twitter had been hacked. However, some news sources like TIME have pointed out that the statement avoided the pregnancy question.

The 'Glee' actress is not pregnant, despite what tweets sent from her account may have claimed.
Lea Michele is not pregnant, despite what a Twitter "announcement" this morning seemed to suggest. The singer and actress was the victim of a prank tweet after her account was hacked and an anonymous user pretended to be Michele announcing her pregnancy.
The actress' reps have confirmed that the tweet was a hoax written by a hacker. In a now-deleted message, the hacker wrote in a post that went live at 11:20am: "Before this gets out to the media, I would like to announce to my fans that I am pregnant #BabyBoy."
Though the message was blatantly a little off, plenty of Lea's fans were fooled into thinking it was the Glee star herself making an announcement. The hacking coincides with a similar strike on Michele's co-star Chris Colfer's account where someone wrote that he was leaving the hit musical show.

The pair have been rumoured to be dating for a few weeks but seeing them out-and-about being openly intimate confirms their relationship. It has been reported that hunky Paetz used to work as a gigolo for escort service Cowboys4Angels, something that has been neither confirmed nor denied by the company.
Regardless, Paetz is apparently "a very nice guy" who is "a lot of fun" to be around, according to E!'s source. "He is very into being in a relationship and loves being in one. He is the kind of person who will want to be with that person all the time, but in a good way," the source continued, adding "And he is a good listener."

Lea Michele is reportedly dating Matthew Paetz, an aspiring actor and model who may have paid the bills by working as a gigolo. Sources are suggesting Michele is aware of Paetz's past and has decided to over look it.
Until fairly recently, actors were considered akin to prostitutes. But, now we've overcome the taboo associated with actors, we're still shocked and appalled at the prospect of a seemingly wholesome actress dating someone who may have been a gigolo. Isn't it about time we get over it?

Almost a year after Cory Monteith’s death from a drug overdose, Lea Michele might be moving on. According to several news outlets, the Glee actress and singer has a new man in her life, one Matthew Paetz. The two reportedly met on-set for Michele’s latest video, On My Way. Paetz is the dude standing up with Michele in the convertible, by the way, not the video’s main love interests. Also, don’t stand up in convertibles is probably good advice to mention at this point.

"She had just come from Coachella where she was missing Cory incredibly," a source told Us Weekly. "(The video shoot) was a big party and a really therapeutic moment for her."

Despite substandard animation, this brightly coloured sequel has a strong enough sense of both its story and characters to hold the audience's attention. And kids might not mind the quality, as they are re-introduced to classic characters in an all-new adventure based on the book Dorothy of Oz by Roger S Baum (great-grandson of L Frank).
It starts the morning after Dorothy (voiced by Lea Michele) gets back home to Kansas after her iconic adventure. Her panicky friends Scarecrow, Tinman and Lion (Dan Aykroyd, Kelsey Grammer and James Belushi) summon her back to Oz, where considerable time has passed while a crazed Jester (Martin Short) kidnaps good witch Glinda (Bernadette Peters) so he and his army of flying monkeys can launch their reign of terror. On her long journey back to Emerald City, Dorothy has a series of adventures with Wiser the owl (Oliver Platt), Marshal Mallow (Hugh Dancy), the China Princess (Megan Hilty) and the old tree Tugg (Patrick Stewart), who all help her take on the Jester.
Yes, the plot is rather simplistic (the Jester merely seems evil for evil's sake), but the real problem is that the animation is badly under-developed. Characters are painfully thin, with no gravity to them at all, which makes it impossible for them to properly interact visually. Fortunately there are some clever touches to the design work, such as the way everything in Oz looks battered and broken, which adds a badly needed dark edge to the otherwise sunny silliness.

The 27 year-old finally came clean on dating her ‘Glee’ co-star, but their fling was very short and happened while the two starred on Broadway.
Lea Michele and Matthew Morrison were an item back in 2010, even though they both have denied this in the past.
The revelation comes in an excerpt from the 27 year-old actress' new memoir 'Brunette Ambition.'
"When we shot the [Glee] pilot, I met Cory Monteith, Kevin McHale, Amber Riley and Chris Colfer for the first time," Michele wrote.
Did Ryan Murphy's "explosive" season finale deliver?
Last night saw the finale of the sixth season of Fox's hit musical series, Glee. Showrunner Ryan Murphy had promised an "explosive" ending and indeed gleeks of the world were handed a fair surprise or two. However, the thing that was decidedly non-explosive was the series' ratings, which equalled that of Ink Master on Spike and was dwarfed by The Deadliest Catch on Discovery.
Lea Michele's Rachel Made A Slight Adjustment To Her Acting Dreams In The 'Glee' S5 Finale.
Nevertheless, the series will plough on for one last season next fall and it looks like the troubled Fox show will keep it fresh by giving its characters a whole new set of opportunities. For example, Sam (Chord Overstreet) and Mercedes (Amber Riley) decided to call time on their relationship after Sam kissed another girl.

Another day another... 100 episodes of "Glee".
100 episodes in, the New Directions are under threat and it’s time for a Glee reunion. It’s also apparently time to dig up the oldest story lines from the original ND class, so that Ryan Murphy and Co. can show just how much the characters have not progressed since high school. The songs were good though, so we’ll let them off the hook.
The battle of the divas... has been going on since season 1.
They had to be good. Not only was this the 100th episode of the Fox show, it was also a chance to pay Finn Hudson (and, by extension, Cory Monteith) one final farewell, it mostly consisted of the cast revisiting old favorites. Two things should come to mind when you read that – Brittany’s Britney Spears hallucination extravaganza and, of course, the one and only, that age-old Glee favorite – Defying Gravity. Both were revisited in the very first fifteen minutes, of course. The Britney act was a sort of Tango-meets-Toxic-meets-burlesque mashup performed by the Unholy Trinity – Britney, Santana and a holier-than-thou Quinn, relishing the chance to get back to her misfit roots. Cool. Great. Seen it before.

Michele's 2013 has been a rollercoaster ride
'Battlefield' is a piano-led ballad that details an intense and excruciating break up. The track is the follow-up glimpse at Louder, with Michele initially releasing her first single from the album online earlier this month. The Sia-penned 'Cannonball' has already proved to be a hit online, with live versions of the song amassing nearly one million views alone, but is currently a sleeper on the charts, only rising as high as No. 75 on the US Billboard Hot 100, although that figure is expected to rise once the video and album has been released.

Cory died of an overdose of heroin and champagne in June
The handling of the episode has been in discussion since it was announced that series creator Ryan Murphy was planning on making a tribute episode, and last night viewers got to see how delicately the show's writers and cast said farewell to their departed singing quarterback. There was no shortage of emotion, as Finn was written out of the show too, but rather than dwelling on his death the episode reflected on the aftermath of his passing, and featured no funeral or dramatisation of Finn's death. This gave the writers a chance to not disclose how Finn died, but made his death a real experience nonetheless.
