Any A-lister who signs on to do a turn on Glee should clench their buttcheeks in preparation for the über-diva behavior from Lea Michele, yet they always seem disgruntled and surprised. WHY IS ANYONE SURPRISED? Kate Hudson, currently filming her guest stint as Rachel Berry's dance teacher, told some source that Michele is a "nightmare" on set: "Once, during a technical delay, Lea snapped her fingers and said, 'Let's go. I have plans!'"
Michele's rep, who I picture as a bedraggled middle-aged man with imprints of the soles of Lea Michele's Sketchers on his face, responds simply:
Lea has had a great time with Kate.
Considering Kate Hudson is someone who grew up in a house with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, her inability to handle Michele indicates that there is a serious problem. Someone go deflate Rachel Berry's head. [http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/kate-hudson-thinks-lea-michele-is-a-diva-on-glee-set-2012308">Us Weekly]
On the bright side, here's a great photo of Chris Colfer with another upcoming Glee guest-star, Sarah Jessica Parker, whose only hope is to sedate Lea Michele with her "Come Little Children" Hocus Pocus song. [Twitter]
Oh, Lord. The backstory behind the Leann Rimes 30-day inpatient facility continues to leak. The excessive Twitter bullying clearly took its toll: Recently Rimes made a "bizarre" phone call to a woman named Kimberly Smiley who stopped following her on Twitter after she and Eddie Cibrian (both married at the time) left their spouses for each other. Smiley became a vocal Twitter supporter of Cibrian's ex, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Brandi Glanville. Earlier this year, Smiley picked up her phone and heard:
Hey b**ch, this is LeAnn. You have 5 minutes to say whatever you want to me.
Apparently a friend of a friend knew Smiley and passed the phone to Rimes at lunch or something. Smiley said she's "never heard a person cuss so much." [Radar Online]
Now Rimes is suing for invasion of privacy. [TMZ]
Glanville's statement: "I totally support LeAnn's decision to enter rehab — my top priority is my children, and at the end of the day we are a family. LeAnn is their stepmom, and they love her. I am wishing her all the best and I hope she will find what she is looking for while in rehab." [Us Weekly]
I know what you're thinking: How can I hang out around the house in Kim Kardashian's old robe? WELL, it's on eBay now, you guys. Before you bid, just be aware that last week Kanye West deemed all of these articles of clothing "ghetto." [Daily Mail]
It's now emerged that, tired of her partying, John Mayer dumped Katy Perry over email. Ten bucks says he's too esoteric for Gmail.
