Speaking of Books, Lea Michele’s “Writing” One And I’m Jumping Out My Window

Lea Michele‘s the worst. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again probably another 5,000 times before I die, but I can’t help myself. She’s absolutely insufferable, not to mention has her head so far up her own ass, it pops back out on top of her shoulders again. Ugh. Anyway, someone thought it was a good idea to give the world’s specialest snowflake her own book – which she’s decided to call Brunette Ambition. Oh ho ho, aren’t we clever!

From The New York Times:

The latest addition to the to-do list of Ms. Michele, a star of the Fox musical comedy-drama, is a book that she will write for the Harmony Books imprint of Random House’s Crown Publishing Group, the publisher said Thursday.

Ms. Michele’s book, titled “Brunette Ambition” and planned for publication next spring, is described in a news release as a “part memoir, part how-to and part style guide” that chronicles its author’s passages “from normal Bronx-born schoolgirl to Broadway child star to lead actress in one of the most popular shows on television.” The release said the book would offer a “behind-the-scenes perspective” from Ms. Michele, who has also appeared on Broadway in “Spring Awakening,” “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Ragtime” and “Les Misérables,” as well as her “practical advice and lessons” for young women who hope to follow in her footsteps.

Ms. Michele said in a statement: “There wasn’t a guidebook when I was growing up, that detailed everything I would need to do, and know, to get where I am today. But I believe I can write one of sorts: not a how-to-make-it-in-show-business book, but a guide to harnessing tenacity, passion, enthusiasm and hard work to make your dreams come true.”

Okay, no. No on so many levels. I would never ever advocate growing up like she has to ANY child. It’s great for parents to love their kids, but hers loved her a little TOO much and turned her into an entitled, stuck-up brat with too much confidence (because yes, there is such a thing). Second of all, your style? It’s the poor man’s Zooey Deschanel. It doesn’t take rocket science, lady, and we certainly don’t need notes from you.

Bet you the Glee fans will eat this shit up like candy, though.

Cory Monteith From ‘Glee’ Is Out of Rehab… But Didn’t He Just Go In?

Cory Monteith booked himself into rehab earlier this month for “substance addiction” issues, but they apparently take less than four weeks to overcome, because he’s out already and totally back to normal, guyz!! Cue the Glee Journey cover!

Anyway… Cory met up with real life girlfriend Lea Michele at LAX on Friday, passports in hand and presumably heading off on vacation to blow off some steam after the difficult past few weeks at a luxury rehab facility. Life’s so hard!

From E! Online:

On Friday morning, the real-life loves were seen at LAX, checking in for a departing flight. Lea, 26, was spotted carrying her passport, so it looks like the duo might have been going on a vacation together.

A witness tells E! News both Lea and Cory seemed “very happy, smiling the entire time.” When security asked Cory how he was doing, he said “good.” Both Lea and Cory were “friendly” to those around them, says a witness, and appeared in great moods and excited to get out of town.

In all seriousness, all the best to Cory, who always reminded me of this kid Chad I went to high school with who used to give me a ride home from school since I was one of the only people in my friend group who didn’t drive. Train’s ‘Drops of Jupiter’ was really popular that year, and I made him turn the volume up every time it came on. No shame (I’m totally ashamed).

Lea Michele still gets no love from me, though. But it’s the Lord’s day, so today, we’ll keep the peace. Heh.


Cory Monteith Is Going to Rehab Again, But Lea Michele’s Love Remains Strong

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.

From People:

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.
