Ah, Charice. If you watch Glee or happened to have accidentally left Fox on and inadvertently got sucked in by an episode of that shit show, you probably know who she is. Maybe only vaguely – I think she was Rachel’s (Le-UGH Michele‘s) competition when she transferred over from another school?
In any case, score one more for the gays, because during an interview on the ABS-CBN show The Buzz on Sunday, she came out as a lesbian:
“Yes, I am a lesbian. But to those who can accept me, thank you very much. We are all equal, whether you are gay or straight.”
Nice! Welcome to the fam, girl. She put a video up on YouTube shortly after, thanking everyone for their support:
“I just wanna say thank you, personally… to all the people supporting me, to all the people who are still there for me.
“Honestly, I’m very, very happy. I can’t explain how happy I am right now hearing all [these] positive things.”
You can watch Charice’s video of thanks below:

It’s hard to report this one without getting into a whole slew of other issues surrounding it, but let’s give it a go. Mark Salling, aka Puck from Glee, was accused last year by ex-girlfriend and Playboy model (because, of course, that totally matters – NOT) Roxanne Gorzela, who claimed that he forced himself on her without a condom in March 2011 – an incident which she sued him for in January this year. He also apparently attacked her and pushed her to the ground when she asked him if he had any STDs.
Anyhoo, Mark has now filed his own suit, saying that Roxanne “entered his home without his permission”, beat him up and scratched his car. That’s the least I’d do to someone who effectively raped me, but whatever.
TMZ broke the story … Roxanne Gorzela — who also works as a DJ — sued Mark in January for sexual battery, claiming they hooked up in March 2011 and Mark forced himself on her without a condom. Roxanne said she was down for sex, but only with protection.
Roxanne said she went back to Mark’s house March 15th to confront him … and found him in bed with another woman. Gorzela says she demanded proof he had no STDs — and he attacked her, pushing her to the ground.Now, Mark has filed a countersuit … in which he tells a VERY different story. In the docs, filed in L.A. County Superior Court and obtained by TMZ … Salling says Roxanne barged into his house without permission, yelling uncontrollably and hitting him on the chest, arms, and face. But it gets worse … Salling claims Roxanne eventually ran out of the home and turned her wrath on his car — using various items from her purse to scratch it up, causing “substantial” damage. Mark is suing for trespassing, and assault and battery … and demanding unspecified damages.
I just want to say this before we go any further. Only 0.05% of reported rapes are false. That’s it. So before we get into this “she wants his money” bullshit, let’s just say that sure, that might be the case, but the likelihood is that this happened. Here’s a friendly reminder for Mark Salling (and anyone else who might be confused): when a girl tells you she’s down for sex as long as you’ve got protection, that does not translate into ‘I’ll have sex with you as long as we use protection, but if you haven’t got any protection and I tell you no, you can force yourself on me anyway and then say it was consensual if you want!” Like, what?
By the way – if his lawsuit had any validity, it would’ve been filed before she ever even reported the incident to police, not AFTER he was called out for being a scumbag/facing legal action. Ugh, I can’t with people.

If Finn from Glee always looked a little dopey, it’s cos he was strung out on the good stuff, I guess. It looks like singing and dancing about your problems wasn’t enough for Cory Monteith, who’s decided to check into rehab for substance abuse problems for a second time. Having first undergone rehab at the age of 19, the now 30-year-old has voluntarily (aka someone probably gave him an ultimatum) checked into a drug treatment facility.
The actor “has voluntarily admitted himself to a treatment facility for substance addiction,” his rep tells PEOPLE. “He graciously asks for your respect and privacy as he takes the necessary steps towards recovery.”
Also, everyone can rest easy as his real life love affair with Lea Michele (my arch enemy, but that’s a story for another day) will see another day! Much like her character Rachel Berry, Lea loves the spotlight and would never let a chance to hog it go to waste, so she released her own statement:
“I love and support Cory and will stand by him through this,” she tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I am grateful and proud he made this decision.”
Well, thank goodness for that. In all seriousness, Cory seems like an alright dude and good on him for getting some help again. Hopefully this time it’ll work.

Actually, there is one funny thing, and that’s when ‘Sue’ goes, “I didn’t ask YOU, Guester! I was asking the funny-shaped kid.” Haha! You’ll see.

Ah, class picture day: unless Mom was willing to spring for a laser portrait, what was the point, anyway?
So I assume FOX’s promotional pics are supposed to (somewhat) resemble genuine class photos. But the cast of Glee isn’t exactly awkward, so—unfortunately?—these promo shots for Season 3 aren’t quite the humiliating minefield/treasure chest your senior yearbook is.
In the interest of comparison, I have included one photograph of me and my 17-year-old self’s untweezed eyebrows in the gallery. Ha! Now that’s what an embarrassing yearbook photo is supposed to look like, FOX.

For some reason, this horrible nightmare never seemed like a legitimate possibility. That wretched Lea Michele singing the words of the absolute master, David Bowie? It’s like kitten genocide: why would it even cross your mind? But that’s why things like this knock us down so hard, friends, because we don’t expect them. To quote the immortal words of Mad-Eye Moody, “constant vigilance!”
Glee butchered Bowie’s “Fashion” in order to promote Fashion’s Night Out, which, as far as I can tell, is just a big event to promote shopping. And that’s absolutely appalling to me, because not only did these people desecrate one of the purest forms of magic I’ve ever known, but they did it just to let people know that they should go shopping on September 8th because if they’re in a big enough city, they might get to meet a celebrity. And if this is what passes for a celebrity nowadays, bratty kids pissing all over good music, then I am not interested, not even a little bit.
It’s fun to get fired up over trivial things, isn’t it? But really, step off David Bowie. He’s too sacred.
