I feel like Lea Michele is one of the most exhausting humans on planet earth. She tries so, so hard in everything she does – absolutely EVERYTHING – because she wants so badly to be liked, to be admired and desired, and she has to be the best at anything she puts her hand to. She’s not, of course, because no human is, but don’t tell her that. I feel like she IS her Glee character Rachel Berry in real life.
Her latest efforts seem to be concentrated on shedding her goody two shoes image and proving to the world that she’s hip and sexy. It’s not working, of course, but don’t tell her that – she’s not going to give up trying! Ugh, please, just stop, girl.
These latest images were posted to Lea’s Instagram as she vacations in Capri. Please, Italy, you can keep her.

This is, uh, clearly (and thankfully!) not true, of course – she just got hacked… maybe by the same person who hacked her Glee co-star Chris Colfer‘s Twitter account the day before and posted a message saying he’d been fired from the show. More of a shocker was that the show is still going – I thought Glee was ending for good after this season?!
Lea (or someone from her team) has since deleted the tweet and set the record straight:
I was HACKED! Guess @chriscolfer and I should have known better then to make our passwords the names of our cats:) ????

Thank God for small miracles, eh?

Lea Michele has been dating
ex-gigolo life coach Matthew Paetz for a few months now, but we’d never seen them out in public together… until now! They took a stroll in a Los Angeles park earlier this week, as you do (??) and looked pretty happy together, I guess… although this looks staged as hell.
How long do you give them? I say another 90 days max.

You know Lea Michele and Naya Rivera are mortal enemies, right? So of course Naya is going to be loving the fact that Lea had no idea she’s currently dating a former gigolo-turned-dating coach. Of course! Even I do – who doesn’t love a good scandal?
From Radar Online:
“The feud between the two is still fresh and Naya is aware of the guy that Lea is dating – and what he has been involved in – and she thinks that its hilarious that Lea is in this situation,” a source tells the site. “It’s funny to her that Lea has a man that people usually pay for his affections, since that is exactly the kind of person who Naya thinks can handle her.”
Ladies, ladies… I don’t think anyone here is in a position to be casting stones when it comes to the choice of partners. Lest we forget the Big Sean drama. Not cute, girl.
That being said, Lea sucks and so does Naya, but Naya’s still the winner here because she’s crazy, but slightly more bearable.

Lea Michele has a new boyfriend, Matthew Paetz, who just so happens to have worked as a male escort for nearly a year. No biggie, right? The problem is, Lea apparently didn’t know about this and just thought he was a dating coach… and still does think that, thanks to his lies.
Lea Michele is standing by her man … TMZ has learned the “Glee” actress has decided to keep dating new BF Matthew Paetz because she’s convinced he’s no gigolo — he just coaches ‘em.
Sources close to the couple tell us … Lea was PISSED after we broke the story about Paetz’s involvement with Cowboys4Angels — a website that offers male “companionship” — and confronted him about it.
We’re told Matthew copped to going on a few dates with female clients … but told Lea he only did it as research — so he could understand what the gigolos go through and coach them through it.
This guy is good … ’cause we’re told Lea actually bought it, and Matt promised he’d never do it again.
Our sources tell us Lea’s not getting the full story … because Paetz has had more than just “a few” dates while working as a gigolo for almost a year.
First of all, how do you NOT KNOW THESE THINGS about the person you’re dating? Sure, if you’re just an average Joe, it might be easy to hide. However, Lea is a celebrity who presumably has a team of PR people constantly watching her every move to assure a) no one is fucking her over in any way and b) nothing is going to damage her career/stop their flow of money. WHO DROPPED THE BALL HERE?
Also, of course this special snowflake got uptight about his past as a gigolo. Pretty princess would NEVER condone such dirty, disgusting work, would she?

Lea Michele used the death of ex-boyfriend Cory Monteith to get as much publicity for her shitty solo album as possible, but now – less than a year after Cory’s passing – she’s already moved on to a new man. That’s right, Lea’s got herself a former gigolo whom she met on the set of her video for ‘On My Way (to Bone Town)’. The song is actually just called ‘On My Way’, but whatever.
From TMZ (via News.com.au):
TMZ reports that the Glee actress’ boyfriend, Matthew Paetz, used to work as an escort for hire.
Paetz has worked under the alias Christian for Cowboys4Angels, a company that offers male companions for women and is featured on Showtime’s Gigolos.
Although his profile is no longer visible on the website, it indicates he’s a life coach, dating expert and a massage therapist.
Spending time with Paetz isn’t cheap. The gossip site claims he charges $US350 for one hour to $US6000 for a weekend. Interested parties can book Paetz for $US17,500 for an entire week.
No shade on sex workers of any gender – get that money, etc. However, I’m a little shocked that Lea, who has a bit of a squeaky clean, almost too perfect image, would go for someone like Matthew. You’d think she’d be worried that he might tarnish her princess reputation. Then again, she is trying really, really hard to break into a sexy popstar persona (which will never happen), so perhaps she’s choosing her boyfriends to fit that criteria.
Here’s the new boy toy (it’s a screenshot from the video):
