Tab Wrongly Portrays “Glee” Star Michele as Princess Lea

Truth rating: 0

Is life imitating art on the set of “Glee”?

According to the National Enquirer, Lea Michele “carries [her] role way too far” and has even “been blasted by her cast mates for letting the show’s popularity go to her head.”

A so-called insider claims, “Lea’s turned into the show diva” and is even “acting uppity in real life” like her character Rachel Berry.

Wait, is this the same Lea Michele whom “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy recently praised?

“Lea is the sweetest, most professional girl,” Murphy told PEOPLE earlier this week. “She’s incredibly kind and she’s always on time and she’s always with her cast hanging out. They’re all close.”

Murphy even predicted that the rumor mill would target Michele unfairly.

“I told Lea this would happen to her in July of last year. Just wait, people will start to write untruths,” he said. “I told her, ‘Keep your chin up and it just happens.”

“It’s happened to me and it’s happened to everyone. So don’t pay attention to it.’ But it’s definitely not true. Lea is great.”

Still, the Enquirer’s supposed “insider” says while “everyone on the cast is pulling together to promote” the hit series, Michele “seems to think cast appearances are beneath her.”

Wait, is this the same Lea Michele who attended both “American Idiot” on Broadway and the FOX upfront with her cast mates just this past week?

The same Lea Michele who joined her co-stars at a panel last month for the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, as well as the show’s spring premiere event?


Sounds like the Enquirer can’t hit anything but flat notes.
