Lea Michelle Breaks her Silence
“Glee” star Lea Michele has finally broken her silence about co-star and on-and-off boyfriend Cory Monteith’s untimely death.
The young starlet spoke to “TV Week Australia” just days before the highly anticipated “Glee” tribute to Finn Hudson (Monteith) aired. In the interview with the Aussie magazine, Michele expressed her love for Monteith, who died of an overdose of heroin and alcohol in a Vancouver hotel in July.
The 27-year-old actress told the magazine, “I’ve lost two people: Cory and Finn.” After holding an intimate memorial for the fallen actor on set, Michele felt it would only be right to properly say goodbye to Finn as well.
“She had one of the first songs we filmed for the tribute episode, and she did it so beautifully,” Morrison told TV Week. Michele also said she was still having a hard time coping with the death, but has never thought of leaving the show. The Grammy winner went on to say she found the tribute to be “therapeutic,” giving her a chance to say farewell to on and off screen lover.
Bruce and Kris Jenner headed to splitsville
After 22 years of marriage, Bruce and Kris Jenner confirmed their separation to E! News. The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” reality stars have decided to officially part ways after spending over a year living apart.
The Olympic medalist and talk show host, who made it no secret they lived apart on the small screen, graced the cover of this week’s US Weekly.
Inside the issue is a story featuring the popular momager. The 57-year-old hot mama told US “We ended a marriage, but that’s not the end of our friendship.” The pair, who have two teenage daughters, Kendall, 17, and Kylie, 16, still remain on good terms.
Although the two have split, Kris said nothing will change in regards to their family life. 63-year-old Bruce will still be appearing on the popular reality show and all members of the Kardashian/Jenner clan will continue to film together. Divorce may not be in the cards anytime soon for the couple, but the missus is foreshadowing a dirty court battle between the two, saying they are “no longer a couple in that way.”
Jimmy Kimmel and Kanye West squash “rap beef”
Self-proclaimed hip-hop god Kanye West strolled into the “Jimmy Kimmel Live” studios with full security detail, girlfriend Kim Kardashian and little North all in tow. The “Black Skinhead” rapper came to the studios to settle a two-day Twitter war with the late night funny man that happened last month.
The feud began after Kimmel spoofed the rapper’s now famous video interview with Zane of BBC1. Moments later, the 36-year-old rapper took to Twitter in anger, lashing out at the comedian through 140 characters with catty remarks saying that ex-girlfriend Sarah Silverman was a better comedian and teasing the talk show host about a lack of intimacy with women. Kimmel came back hard, hitting West by mentioning his girlfriend’s infamous sextape. The Chicago native took to Twitter again to defend himself, saying Kimmel was bullying him.
Two weeks later, West was taping a live one-on-one interview with Kimmel where the two squashed their beef.
