With a People’s Choice award and a Golden Globe nomination to boot, the dulcet -toned starlet can now count her second GLAMOUR gong in two years amongst her achievements. Quick to silence the rumours of her departure from the hit show, Lea has confirmed she has started filming on series four…
GLAMOUR.com highlight of the year: …Not so quick to silence the rumours of romance, it has been suggested that Lea is dating her Glee co-star and on-screen beau Cory Monteith. We can but dream. Watch this space, Gleeks!
Lea says: “Were Rachel to have a romance with a guest star, it would be a tie between Ricky Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow.”

Lea stays in shape by tackling the trails in picturesque Runyon Canyon—a 15-minute drive from her apartment—and working out with L.A. health counselor Devon Butler. “We do a lot of yoga during red-carpet season,” says Butler. “Lea has so much attention on her, and this is so calming.” Lea especially likes Bikram, poses and breathing exercises done in a heated studio for deeper stretching and stress relief.

‘The last scene’s pretty intense,’ Lea Michele tells MTV News about season-three ‘cliffhanger.’
“Glee” will wrap up its third season on Tuesday night in a finale marking a major milestone for the New Directions: graduation. That means fans will get to see show favorites, including Rachel (Lea Michele), Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Finn (Cory Monteith), all decked out in caps and gowns.
With everyone slated to come back for season four, their fates will mostly be decided by the end of the finale, but some things will be left up to chance. At least that’s what Michele told us at an event announcing Fox’s fall lineup, where she weighed in on the highly anticipated episode.
“The last scene’s pretty intense,” she teased. “The last scene’s a very big cliffhanger.”

Earlier this week, FOX revealed that Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Hudson will join “Glee” for guest arcs in Season 4, and two of the show’s continuing stars — Chris Colfer and Lea Michele – cannot wait.
“I’m so excited,” Chris said, responding to the SJP news, while speaking with Access Hollywood at the FOX Upfronts earlier in the week. “I’m such a huge fan. I’m really, really excited and I think what they [have] planned for the two characters is going to be really, really great and the fans are gonna be very, very happy.”
Lea Michele, whose character, Rachel Berry, will graduate on next week’s “Glee” alongside Chris’ Kurt Hummel, hinted that Kate’s six-episode arc will relate to her character’s journey beyond McKinley High.
“I’m so excited and when I spoke to Ryan [Murphy, ‘Glee’s’ co-creator] about it [earlier this week], he was telling me about our storyline, I just about died. We’re coming into our fourth season and to be this excited about our storylines and about the people that we’re getting to work with, I think, is just really awesome and I think she’s incredible. She’s one of the best comedic actresses out there right now and so I can’t wait to work with her and what he has in store for us is so cool.”
Glee is on the move.
Fox unveiled its official 2012-13 schedule this morning and the big news is the relocation of Ryan Murphy’s musical dramedy this fall to Thursdays at 9/8c following The X Factor results show (and American Idol at midseason). That timeslot’s former occupant, Kiefer Sutherland’s Touch, will shift to Fridays where it will lead into the final season of Fringe.
For the June 5 season premiere of the Oxygen reality series, in which aspiring performers vie for a seven-episode arc on Glee, star Lea Michele (right, with Glee and Glee Project casting director Robert Ulrich) shows up to guest-mentor the competitors. Michele, whose character Rachel Berry will graduate from Glee’s McKinley High this month, says the significance of the visit was not lost on her. ”It was such an emotional thing,” she says. ”Everything came full circle in that these kids wanted to be on our show, and they’re so talented, and each had their own stories in the same way we did. It was really inspiring. I had the best time and begged [Glee Project executive producer Ryan Murphy] to go back and do it again.” (For an exclusive video of TGP2’s cast, go to ew.com/gleeprojectvideo.)
It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for since our teaser post yesterday! Here is our brand new pic of Lea Michele posing with the elephant beanie baby. This picture was taken on the set of Glee on 45th Street in New York City.

This morning Lea Michele was spotted filming a scene for Glee in Grand Central Terminal. In the scene they were shooting, Lea was wearing a bright red coat and matching hat while pulling a suitcase behind her. She was also spotted filming outside the station.
Obviously, the scene captures Rachel’s arrival in NYC but the question is, will Finn be with her?
Though Cory Monteith was spotted at today’s shoot, there is some question about whether or not he actually filmed any scenes today or if he was just hanging out with his on and off-screen girlfriend, Lea.
This morning we received a couple of tips and pics from the shoot from our readers but initially there was some confusion over what they were filming, especially since there were signs for the FOX pilot The Asset also posted nearby.
But, it was confirmed to be Glee thanks to a few photos of the crew (including the one below) that include the show’s creator, Brad Falchuk.
In addition to the Grand Central shoot, Michele was spotted filming something in Madison Square Park too.
Of course everyone wants to know if they are filming tomorrow but honestly, I’m not sure. So, if you spot them tomorrow or have any pics to share, let us know via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you missed Lea today, she is also expected to be at the Met Costume Ball tomorrow night, so you may be able to catch her arriving there. If you’re in L.A., Glee will be filming at 115 S June St, Los Angeles on May 10 from 7 am – 6 pm.
