Plenty of conflicting reports are coming through concerning Naya Rivera’s alleged termination from Fox’s hit musical series Glee. The actress has supposedly ‘been written out of Glee’s fifth season finale’, when she had originally been set to star in the episode, titled ‘The Rachel Berry Project.’  Rachel Berry is the character played by Lea Michele in the show.

And Here's To 100 More "Glee" Episodes With The Same 10 Plotlines


Amber Riley Naya Rivera Lea Michele Cory Monteith

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.

Amber RileyLea Michele
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.

Lea Michele Cory Monteith

Lea Michele has had a difficult year to deal with in 2013, but has managed to put her heartbreak and emotional stress at bay long enough to concentrate on her professional career. In addition to her acting work, Lea has also been hard at work on her first solo album, Louder, and today we got to listen to our second teaser for the album.

Lea Michele
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.

'Glee' Bids Emotional Farewell To Cory Monteith In Memorial Episode


Cory Monteith Lea Michele

On Thursday, 10 October, Cory Monteith was remembered by those who perhaps knew him better than anyone else, as he and his character, Finn Hudson, was remembered in an emotional tribute episode of the Fox musical-comedy. The long-awaited episode came early into the latest season of Glee, which was pushed back a week in order to accomodate the passing of Monteith and in preparation for the memorial episode, The Quarterback.

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.

"Glee debuted as the first and only successful musical comedy series on television, and more than four years later, it continues to defy genres, break new ground and have a significant impact on popular culture,” Fox entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly said in a statement announcing the news on Friday. “Week in and week out, Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Ian Brennan, Dante DiLoreto and the entire Glee team deliver a series that not only delights and surprises fans, but also inspires them to talk about, share, debate and engage with the show - and I’m absolutely thrilled to have them on board for another two seasons.”

Back in January, Reilly dropped a hint that the network might be renewing Glee for more than one season, by saying: "We're going to negotiate now for the fifth season and beyond."

The decision makes sense for Fox, since Glee – as loved and hated by audiences as it may be – is one of the network’s top performers in terms of ratings. It has performed especially well in its new Thursday 9PM slot and the writers have covered topics oriented toward a more mature audience, like in last week’s school shooting themed episode. It will be interesting what direction the writing team decide to take now, with the possibility of developing story arcs over the next two seasons.

Taylor Swift, People's Choice Awards

Taylor Swift was among the big winners at the People's Choice Awards last night (January 9, 2013)

Taylor Swift and The Wanted were undoubtedly the biggest names to take home People's Choice Awards last night at the 39th annual version of the event. Taking place in Los Angeles, the ceremony was also notable for other guests including Paris Hilton, Julianne Hough, Naomi Watts and Lea Michele. The entirely fan-voted for awards saw Taylor Swift take home the Favorite Country Artist gong, though she once again found herself in a 'Kanye' situation as Olivia Munn initially refused to give her the statuette. It was all for play though, with Swift laughing "Oh God... this always happens!"

Lea Michele Cory Monteith Glee Ellen Degeneres

Rachel and Finn have had a very tumultuous relationship in Glee, to say the least. But in real life the actors who play both those characters have a dream-like relationship. 

Lea Michele (Rachel) and Cora Monteith (Finn) have been dating for months but they only unveiled the news publicly on Ellen, to its host Ellen Degeneres. Ellen asked him about 'Monchele' and what it means. He replied "Well, of course I know what Monchele is... it's Monteith and Michele... Yeah [we are a couple]." The news of which inspired the audience to scream their approval. 

Despite both looking as though they're in high school, like their famous Glee characters, Michele is in fact 26 while Cory is 30, and it's right about time for a grown-up relationship. Michele is gracing the cover of Marie Claire this month in which she has spoken about her relationship with Cory. "I don't even remember a time when he wasn't my boyfriend. No one knows me better than Cory," quotes NY Daily News. "No one knows what it's been like to go through this more than he does. Feeling like you have that net underneath you allows you to jump higher and go farther... He makes me feel like I can do anything. For the first time in my life, I feel really, really settled and happy. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world."

‘Glee’ Star Lea Michele Confirms She’s Working On Debut Album


Lea Michele

We’ve all seen Lea Michele belting them out as one of the main stars of hit musical drama Glee, but now the actress is planning on proving that she can do it as a standalone artist. That’s right, the star has revealed via Twitter that she is going to be preparing her debut album for release!

Taking to the social networking site, Michele wrote "Just had a very exciting music meeting and am proud to announce that im officially on the road to making my first album! I'm so excited!" Following up, she added "There's so much to be thankful for right now. Feeling so blessed and thankful. And I couldn't do it without all of you! Love you guys!"

Michele’s singing has been among the highlights of Glee during its three season run, and the announcement comes just as the fourth is beginning. The new season sees all of the main character spread about the US after graduating from high school, and Michele commented to MTV "You basically have the kids who have graduated and their story lines, as well as the kids back in high school." She added "I think it'll be really great because it gives us the opportunity for the characters who have been on the show for a while to move on and to start new story lines, but then the kids who are newer on the show will get to continue on."

New Year's Eve Review


Terrible
The team that made the thin-but-enjoyable Valentine's Day in 2010 reunites for another massively overextended rom-com with a remarkable A-list ensemble. But this time the stories and filmmaking overdose on ill-conceived schmaltz.

As the countdown to 2012 begins, an executive (Swank) is frazzled about a technical glitch in the iconic Time's Square ball-drop. Meanwhile, a courier (Efron) is trying to help a frumpy secretary (Pfeiffer) achieve her dreams. A chef (Heigl) is catering a glittering event while trying to avoid her rock star ex (Bon Jovi), whose back-up singer (Michele) is stuck in a lift with a lovelorn slacker (Kutcher). A mother (Parker) is worried about her teen daughter (Breslin). And a tuxedoed millionaire (Duhamel) is trying to get to an important event in the city.

Glee: The 3D Concert Movie Review


Good
The Glee phenomenon hits the big screen with this oddly conceived movie, which documents the social phenomenon but reveals nothing about the series or actors beyond the songs they sing.

Made primarily for fans who couldn't attend the summer 2011 tour, this is mainly a concert movie featuring some 20 songs from the TV show. Each main character gets his or her moment in the spotlight as they stir the arena crowd into a frenzy of adoration. Between numbers, we meet fans who have felt the show's impact: sparky high-school cheerleader Janae, who's only incidentally a dwarf; the soulful Trenton, who was forced out as gay in eighth grade; and the reclusive Josie, who has emerged from her shell as a Gleek.
