Nene Leakes can officially stop pretending she is just sitting by the phone waiting on Ryan Murphy to call her. She is officially finished with Glee. During the recent Television Critics Association’s winter press tour, Kevin Reilly, president of Fox, unveiled plans for the remainder of season five and for the finale season of Glee. The bottom line is that the Lima, Ohio set is no more and the show will focus exclusively on the graduates as the make their way in NYC. I don’t think they will need a synchronized swim coach in the big apple.
Nene, who has had a minor recurring role on the show since 2012 will make her twelfth and final appearance on Glee on their 99th episode on March 11, 2014. It is a special episode entitled City of Angels which appears, to me at least, to be a final episode for most of the characters who will not be moving to NYC. Continue reading
Whoever handles Nene’s PR is working over time this month. She set to appear on GMA shortly to talk about her blood clots. Nene says she was at work when she started feeling pain under her right breast that kind of went around her side and to her back. The next morning she was still hurting in those places and her right shoulder. She felt like something was wrong. Gregg kept telling her she had gas. She went to the hospital. They ran a few tests and discovered clots on her right lung and a few on her left.
At first they thought it might be caused by all the traveling, but now they think it may be a genetic issues. She is on blood thinners. Continue reading
Tonight’s Glee, which is starting any minute now, is a farewell to Finn, the character played by Cory Monteith. Monteith died of a drug and alcohol overdose last July while Glee was on hiatus. He was engaged to Lea Michele at the time of his death and she was finalizing plans for their wedding.
Let’s see how they handle this.
According to twitter, Cory and Lea Michelle, his fiancée and co-star were to be married in just two weeks. What a horrific thing for her to go through, burying her fiancé instead of having a long awaited wedding. It is believed that when Cory checked himself into rehab, he was attempting to put his final demons to rest in preparation for his new life with Lea.
Is it just me or does this day just keep on sucking? I’m off to look for some lighthearted news.
It’s sort of a mixed bag for Nene Leakes this week. The New Normal, has been cancelled after a borderline season. I though perhaps Ryan Murphy might be able to eek out one more season, but alas, it was not the case. Glee, on the other hand, I believe, for reasons no one understands, has two more seasons! I could not believe that when I read it and I am still not sure it is true. Since the primary cast graduated, the show has been filming things in NYC with them as well as the new kids in the high school scenes. Nene is on that occasionally for a hot second. Once Glee had the split in locations, Nene’s already small role was greatly reduced. It remains to be seen if she will even be on the next two seasons, but given Ryan’s gay crush on her, it is likely she will be making at least limited appearances. Continue reading
I thought since this is the end of my first full calendar year of blogging, I’d look back at 2012 and remember some of my favorite pieces. This was initially just for my personal end of the year performance evaluation of myself, but I decided to share some links with you, because I’ve gained so many more readers who might be interested. In my second month of blogging last December, I was so fortunate to have a source come forward and give me the worldwide exclusive on Nene Leakes getting a gig on Glee. I was so excited to be the first to break the news! And then I got my first lesson on having my work stolen. No bueno! That gave me a new resolve for 2012 so if you are interested, come take a look back with me. Continue reading
