Three Of Glee's Biggest Stars Leaving The Show

Remember when we were all excited because we heard that Glee had hired new writers? Well those new peeps have arrived to write Rachel, Finn and Kurt off the show. Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and the exquisite Chris Colfer will graduate at the end of the fall season and will not return for the fourth season. My heart, she breaks. Kurt! His clear-as-a-bell voice, his glistening tears, his ability to hold his head high in the face of adversity and nail Beyoncé choreography. Sigh. Show creator Ryan Murphy says: "We made that decision and I involved Chris and Lea and they thought that was a good idea," says Murphy. "They both trust the writing and trust me and felt that it would be great to have an open and closed experience for them to go out while they were on top." And: "You can keep them on the show for six years and people will criticize you for not being realistic," he says, "or you can be really true to life and say when they started the show they were very clearly sophomores and they should graduate at the end of their senior year." Whatever, dude. Still calling my band Kurt's Tears. [People, Daily Mail]

  • And now a message from Chris Brown's reps:

    "A totally fictitious article ran in the current Star Magazine (issue date July 25, 2011) accusing our client Chris Brown of doing something that he did not do. The article claimed that on June 29, 2011, Chris participated in a pick up basketball game at 24 Hour Fitness Center in LA and said some very inappropriate statements. The incident described did not occur, nor did the Star ever contact Chris' representatives to request comment or confirmation. Chris was filming a video with AceHood on June 29 and never left the set. He spent the entire day with dozens of members of the production team filming the video for "Body To Body" at 1870 Sunset Plaza in West Hollywood. The Star accompanied the fabricated story with a photo of Chris playing basketball in New York that was taken on the day of his F.A.M.E. CD release in March.Chris Brown's management is considering taking appropriate legal action against the paper... We stand behind our client and want to set the record straight that this did not happen."
