This just in, Cory Monteith has checked into rehab for a “substance addiction”, although we are not quite sure which substance. Checking in last night, Monteith has been to rehab before for the same addiction when he was 19. In 2011 he told us,
“I don’t want kids to think it’s okay to drop out of school and get high, and they’ll be famous actors, too, but for those people who might give up: Get real about what you want and
go after it”.
After these inspiring words and ongoing smile, it’s surprising that this shocking event has occurred, but then again it really shows how much we don’t know about our favorite cast.
A rep for Monteith also stated: “[Monteith] has voluntarily admitted himself to a treatment facility for substance addiction. He graciously asks for your respect and privacy as he takes the necessary steps towards recovery.”
Voluntarily, graciously, privacy; he really is a kind-hearted guy.
And does this mean Monteith may be missing out on some filming?
That’s all for now and our kindest regards go out to Cory. We wish you a speedy recovery and are very proud of you.
It’s the question on everyone’s mind; well, at least on Fox Entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly’s mind.
I would love to wish you all a gleeful start to the year and I hope your holidays were enjoyable. Also a big happy birthday to Naya Rivera (Santana), who turned 27 on 12th January, Becca Tobin (Kitty), who on 18th January turned 28 and a huge Happy Birthday to Miss Heather Morris who will be turning 26 on 1st February. Send them your gleeful wishes on their twitter accounts. (@NayaRivera & @becbecbobec)
But to refer to the headline, recently at the Television Critics Association, Mr Reilly, when asked about the status of Glee’s Season 5, answered with:
“Yes, that is a real possibility. We’re going to negotiate now for the fifth season and beyond, so we’re talking about those things now.”
So although not completely confirmed, it could be a definite that we are all going to be watching a season 5 (and beyond) of FOX’s hit show.
Regardless of the awkward scheduling this season and the divided story lines from Ohio to New York, Fox is extremely happy and by the sounds of it, gleeful, when it comes to a new season. There could be a few minor changes in the location though, explains Reilly,
“I wonder- could it, and should it, naturally move [to New York City]?I have to talk to Ryan and see where he’s at right now.”
It could be a good idea with so many more core characters set to graduate at the end of this season, but would Glee still be Glee without McKinley?
“[Season 4] was ultimately what became of the spinoff talk: Let’s do it within the franchise.”, explained Kevin Reilly on Jan 8th, “I do think if we can continue to follow a broad array of characters, it’s like life, you have relationships, you have friends, they go off, their lives go on and you get together and, maybe you maintain a friendship, maybe you lose distance. I think we can do that within this world of people you followed”
Mr Rielly was also keen to point out that what lies ahead will certainly involve cast members such as Dianna Agron, Mark Salling, Amber Riley and Naya Rivera.
“Some of them have moved on to other things or wanted to move on to other things, but they love the show, and this gives them a chance to come back and do an arc. It would be fun to continue that morphing.”
But as said by wetpaint.com, “Is this a sign that Fox doesn’t love this season’s new McKinley students?”
Well, let us know any thoughts and comments you have about this “to be confirmed” plan for Glee and any ideas on Season 5 storylines.
Hello Gleeks! The cast is going to start filming season 4 of Glee THIS MONTH. We’re getting closer and closer to having our favorite show back on television, and I can’t wait! Yesterday at Comic-Con, they held a special Glee panel to give us some insight on the upcoming season, and some questions were answered:
- They are working on making Chord Overstreet a series regular! They said they are very close.
- It has been confirmed that everyone who was series regular last year will be returning this year, to some capacity.
- Mike and Tina and Kurt and Blaine will be two couples dealing with a long distance relationship.
- The second episode will be a tribute to Brittany Spears! The story line will be centred around our beloved Brittany with some Rachel Berry life in NYC
The cast also answered some questions from the audience:
- Lea was asked if there was ever an opportunity for Rachel to explore her sexuality, Quinn or Santana? Lea answered she wouldn’t be opposed at all, and what about both?
- Naya is working on her new album, with a single called My Heart
- The “Why didn’t Klaine kiss in the Nationals episode?” was addressed in great length at the panel. Here’s a youtube link to see the video yourself, it’s worth watching. This has been a debate plaguing the Glee audience ever since the finale aired. Is this a good enough answer for you?
- Ian, one of the producers of Glee, thought it would be a good idea to feature Artie’s mom on the show as a hoarder.
- Last, but not least, Jenna would like to see Tina’s struggle becoming an Asian performer, something Jenna has dealt with herself, for it gives something people can relate too.
We’d love to hear what you guys want to see for next season, so leave a comment below!
If you didn’t know already, our very own Chris Colfer has written a 448 page novel titled The Land of Stories.

I’ll be attending the Columbus, Ohio singing, and I hope to hear that many of you made it out to one as well! Everyone here at ConfessedGleeks is very proud of Chris Colfer and all that he has accomplished.
A brief synopsis of the book is as follows (taken from EW.com):
Described as a “modern-day fairy tale,” the book will focus on twins Alex and Conner, who leave the real world behind and find themselves in a land where they come face-to-face with the fairy-tale characters — witches, goblins, trolls — they’ve always read about.
It only seems like yesterday when we first saw freshman Finn walking down the halls of McKinley, but before Season 3 finished this year the “young” actor, Cory Monteith, celebrated his 30th birthday straight after the first gathering for the show’s wrap party in Beverly Hills on May 11th.
The party consisted of the Glee Cast and other guests such as “Abduction” star, Lily Collins and surprising ended without the cops having to be called, unlike the last party Monteith tried to throw in February (nice one Cory!) “where his roommate was landed with the noise pollution citation; whilst Monteith tried to “dodge” to problem.” reported E! News.
The party for Monteith’s 30th was reported to be “fun” and everyone was surprised when the choice of cake arrived…
But before the ’big bash’ commenced most of the Glee Cast took to Twitter to celebrate another milestone of Monteith’s life. The first person to celebrate was Ms Michele tweeting, just after midnight, “AND since its after 12pm… I’d like to be the first to wish a very special bday to a very special person @CoryMonteith.. happy birthday <3″. Moments later Michele quickly followed up with, “Haha 12am…”. Poor Lea, it must have been a long week…
Later on in the day, Dianna Agron (Quinn), tweeted birthday wishes too, “A very Happy Birthday to @CoryMonteith & Dante. Cory, I want to see you dance tonight,” she wrote. Soon Ms Amber Riley (Mercedes) tweeted to the big boy,”Happy Birthday big bro! @CoryMonteith,” and so did Damian McGinty (Rory) writing, “Happy birthday to the nicest guy I know @CoryMonteith… roll on tonight!!!”.
The age-defying actor also heard from Harry Shum Jr. (Mike), who recently turned 30 himself the month before, as he put together, “Happy BornDay @CoryMonteith!! You’re now the flipped version of 03!!., “quite the classy tweet Harry.
We also stumbled across tweets from Grant Gustin (Sebastian) who wrote, “Hey yo, @CoryMonteith!!! Happy birthday!”, and Chord Overstreet (Sam), “Happy Birthday!!! to @CoryMonteith It’s a big year!”.
Mark Salling (Puck) tweeted, “Big birthday holler to my good buddy @CoryMonteith. Hopefully we can have some gtwtS over the summer”, we are guessing gtwts stands for good times with the Saw, (Good on you Salling).
Miss Naya Rivera also wished the tall man a” HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY @CoryMonteith!!!!!! I heard 30 is the new 20 ”. She might be right due to the fact that Finn is only 18.
So it sounds like Mr Monteith celebrated his turning of the big 30 in style but he definitely didn’t leave his 20s accomplishing nothing as he “continued to rock out with his band Bonnie Dune, smooched up Smash’s Megan Hilty at the GLAAD Media Awards and spoke his mind when it came to supporting issues in the LGBT community,” reported E! News.
Well, we hope Cory has enjoyed being 30 so far and Confessed Gleeks would like to wish him all the best for upcoming years.
Keep checking back for more Monteith updates and the news about your favourite cast and TV show.
Have a gleeful night/day, wherever you are,
FINALLY! LEA AND CORY HAVE GONE PUBLIC!
At the Rangers game, Lea and Cory were more interested in kissing each other than watching the game. After months of speculation, the rumours are true after this PDA.
The rumours started when Michele tweeted: “Think I just saw a really hot 6’3 Canadian with a tribal arm band hanging by the pool.. So happy ”. We’re all so pleased about it!
Anyway in other news, all the cast members are coming back! YAY! Start the celebrations now, we will see everyone in season 4!
Naya is on her way to the UK, after tweeting that she couldn’t wait to get there!
Mark has shaved his Mohawk!
He tweeted: “That’s a wrap on the ol mohawk, didnt consider tanlines. Uh oh” whilst posing in Batman underwear… nice Mark!
That’s all for this week Gleeks, remember……
ONE WEEK UNTIL GRADUATION!
