This. Is. HUGE!!!!!

You all remember the amazing Charice Pempengco from her appearance on Oprah. Now, you'll be able to see her every week right alongside your favorite gleeks!

Her manager confirmed that the Filipina international pop star was just signed on as a series regular for the coming season of Glee.

Another Asian for Sue Sylvester to torment! Brilliant!

We think this will be a great fit for her! We just want to know MORE!

Give us the deets, Charice!

Update: Sad news. We've been informed that Charice has NOT yet been confirmed on Glee!

Reports were that her manager from the Philippines, Grace Mendoza had confirmed the news. Unfortunately, her manager Marc Johnston has not and we're told there is no truth to her appearing on Glee.

    It's Filipino not Philippino



  2. 2

    This girl can sing. I remember seeing her on Oprah.



  3. 3

    She looks like Tila Tequila here…lol. I loe her voicebut I don't like that she has an almost american accent. She sounds like every other wannabe pop singer and it's getting tired.



  4. 4

    maybe it's my naivety but when/where/how does an asian girl get a first name like charice?



  5. 5

    Yay, First!

    Yay, Charice!



  6. 6

    It's spelled "filipino" dumb ass.



  7. 7

    Yay, Charice!



  8. 8

    omg!omg!!!
    I'm sooooo happy for her :)
    she's such a talented girl :)
    she deserves this ! :D



  9. 9

    Filipino******



  10. 10

    Now, this is worth congratulating, THIS chick CAN sing, the other one, NOT!



  11. 11

    Wow Charice, congrats! You go girl!!!



  12. 12

    Okay, so I didn't know who she was, so I just googled her and watched the Oprah clip. Holy shit this girl can SING!



  13. 13

    I have total respect for Charice and I know she can REALLY sing, so I think her being on Glee is awesome, but definitely NOT as a series regular.
    Her as a guest star would be awesome - but if these 20+ year olds are playing 16 year olds then how old is she supposed to be?!
    One - Three episodes is a smart idea and great for her, but regularly is not going to work out



  14. 14

    Filipina - she is female.



  15. 15

    He made a mistake, you normally say Filipino perez!

  16. te says – reply to this

    wow way to ruin glee



  17. 17

    Good exposure for Charice. Lets wait and see how well she does in Glee.



  18. 18

    OMG! Awesome!!!!!! I've never ever seen a single episode of that show but now that Charice would be in it, I can't wait to see it.



  19. 19

    Can you say unattractive?



  20. 20

    AWESOMEST! i love glee and i love charice. go, girl go glee!



  21. 21

    ….all this Glee PR is nauseating….this show is going to implode just like Ugly Betty……



  22. 22

    I LOVE CHARICE!!!

    I'll definitely start watching the show…don't know anything about GLEE except that it's popular. I'll have to catch up!!!



  23. 23

    Re: April 20th – Specifically Asian Girls that ahve Spanish names to start with Charmaine Clarice Pempengco and which country has the propensity of making it sound American so her nickname in that country is Charice. There is only 1 country in Asia that does that and its the former Commonwealth State of the United States The Philippines



  24. 24

    whaaaa can't wait to see charice on glee i don't watch this show but now i will everyweek for sure



  25. 25

    Re: April 20th Re: April 20th
    Just because she's Asian doesn't mean she has to use an Asian name. There are lots of other countries in Asia that have adopted American names…Sheeesh!!!



  26. 26

    Great news! Will be looking forward! So happy for her! :D



  27. 27

    She can sing..but she's really short..like 4'9 or something….but she outsings them all…



  28. 28

    I LOVE THIS GIRL.. thank you Paris for backing her up.



  29. 29

    She's gonna go place. I LOVE THIS CHICK!!



  30. 30

    Oh wow good for her! Leach (BITCH) michelle no longer has the best voice! hahaha DIVA strop imminent :P

    p.s follow me on t w i t t e r my names FUTURESTARdelux thanks :) x



  31. 31

    Re: April 20th – April20th: "maybe it's my naivety but when/where/how does an asian girl get a first name like charice?"

    What do you mean? Define "an Asian name." LOL Just an FYI, her full name is Charmaine Clarice, thus Charice.



  32. 32

    I HAVEn't seen a single episode of glee.. i gotta watch it now that charice is cast in.



  33. 33

    That is too bad! She has too much talent to be on the pointless and no plot show!



  34. 34

    I wonder if Lea Michelle threw a diva fit when she heard the news Now she will have to contend with two other big voiced women: Amber Riley and Charice. Ha!



  35. 35

    Re: Tube Steak – couldn't agree more!



  36. 36

    HER ALBUM IS TOTAL FLOP, 43K 1ST WEEK??? SUXXX ASS!! BEST MOVE FOR HER SHORT L'IL CAREER. IT'S NO WONDER SHE'S A FLOP… DAVID FOSTER DRIVEN OLD SHIT PLUS HER STYLE IS A COPYCAT OF CELINE DION AND KARAOKE WHITNEY HOUSTON. NO ONE FUCKING CARES WHEN THE ORIGINALS ARE STILL AROUND MAKING MORE $$ ON TOUR AND CD SALES. SHE DOESNT HAVE THE POP STAR LOOK OR FEEL. JUST A TINY ASIAN KID WITH AN ACCENTED BIG MOUTH. IN AMERICA WHICH IS EITHER BLACK OR WHITE, THAT DOESNT FLY. TRUTH!!



  37. 37

    Wtf, a series regular? Ok she can sing and all, but please, please don't make her a series regular. It would just ruin it



  38. 38

    She is "FILIPINO" not "Philippino" you ignorant dipshit.



  39. 39

    Good for her. She came from such a hard place to success. She deserves it. Can't wait!



  40. 40

    Would love to see Charice and Amber Riley in a sing-off! They're both awesome singers! I stopped watching Glee as it was getting boring but I'll definitely watch again with Charice in it!



  41. 41

    Well, I see that they're following the Assimilation 101 handbook. Why did they have to dye her hair and lighten it? Is dark hair unacceptable in Hollywood? Even Tila Tequila has gone blonde.
    I love how the French and Italians support their lovely brunette actresses (Audrey Tatou, Marion Cotillard, Monica Bellucci, etc.) But the Americans and the British seem to insist on blondes. What's up with that?



  42. 42

    She is horrible.
    I am so DISGUSTED.



  43. 43

    Re: xcalibur – Ohhhh what about the 60 Million Mexican/Latin Americans? and the 35 Million Asian Americans? so America is black or white? So Perez hilton isnt American i reckon cause he is Latin-American right?



  44. 44

    Well, at 18, she is actually age appropriate, unlike some of those 28 year olds on the show who are trying to portray 17….



  45. 45

    I'm Filipino and believe there was a movement at one point to spell it Philippino instead of Filipino — something about Filipino being a colonial label. But that never stuck, was never really even close to popular usage, and it is Filipino.

    @April 20th - as for an Asian getting a name like Charice, the Philippines is all over with their names. Almost all have Western names, whether the names are Spanish or English/American. Sometimes you'll meet someone with a pre-colonial, indigenous name like Liwayway or something like that. But even that, in my experience, isn't as widespread. Not unheard of but not as popular. Most have formal Spanish names and, increasingly, American names. The Filipino touch really comes out in your *nickname.* LOL. All Filipinos have nicknames. And some of them are crazy!

    But that was all off-topic. Yay, Charice on Glee! She would be a great addition! She has a great voice.



  46. 46

    Another Asian? What happened to the so called diversity? Where are the Latinos? Boring! Don't think I'll be watching Glee for the second season!



  47. 47

    Re: xcalibur – asstroll much???



  48. 48

    Re: PixiePeet – Good! I hope you get nauseous and get physically ill so we won't have to read your annoying shallow posts anymore!!!



  49. 49

    Im a fan but she needs to work on her English. Removing the harsh accent she has on the English language.



  50. 50

    This show is not hard to figure out. The music industry wants you to buy music.



  51. 51

    Re: Koreanay – LOL, AND LOOK WHAT A MOCKERY PEREZ IS TO THE LATINO COMMUNITY!! EXACTLY… 43K SALES IS NOTHING. AND IF THE ASIAN COMMUNITY REALLY SUPPORTED HER SHE HAVE HELLUVA MORE THAN 43K SALES FIRST WEEK FUCKTARD. OBVIOUSLY NO ONE CARES ABOUT HER SHIZ MUSIC IN THE STATES. NEXT!!



  52. 52

    Re: babygirl12 – didn't say she needed an asian name just thought charice seemed an odd choice of name for her……..i don't care what her name is or have a problem with it…….most asian girls have very "white washed" first names like Jenny or Samantha…….



  53. 53

    She is the most horrible singer I've seen.

    Gag
    Gag
    Gag

    Re: luckystrike – Get some hearing aids ASAP!!!



  55. 55

    Re: Birds & Sirens – appreciate the calm and civil explanation….i think others may have taken me wrong………



  56. 56

    Why is this HUGE! Who writes this stuff, a 12 yr old?



  57. 57

    wowow!! charice surely fits in the glee club..more success to the show! looking forward the upcoming new episodes..



  58. 58

    Re: April 20th – Lots of Asians have names like that… especially in the Philippines



  59. 59

    Really excited to see her on Glee!!!



  60. 60

    I am so excited, I love her!



  61. 61

    Re: xoxoBanz – i completely agree. i would love to see her as a new freshman and guest star on a few episodes and kind of challenge rachel, but i think they need to stick with the core group as regulars



  62. 62

    Re: amricanboy – Santana is a Latino. And most of the cast are American. There is only, now, 3 Asians…



  63. 63

    To all the HATERS out there… you wished you were in her place, didn't you? well, keep on dreamin' folks, it's free… Charice is amazing… and she deserves to be on the Show…

    to all who argued on how the word "Filipino/Philipino(whatever)" should be spelled… this not a ****ng english grammar site, so chill out, as long as it's understood, it's good….



  64. 64

    Re: xcalibur – Ohhh 43k isnt just a number. It happens to be the Top #8 Album in the billboard 200, #8 in digital Downloads, #4 In Canadian Album Sales which makes it #3 in all US Debut Album for the week and #1 Canadian Debut Album.

    Its easy to look at the number cause no matter how high it gets you will say its a flop even if she sold 150k Album in a week. However what matters wis what's on the billboard charts

    Pyramid entered the billboard hot 100 #56 and Canadian Hot 100 #32.



  65. 65

    Re: Cheezees – That's funny..I thought this was Tila Tequila, too! I wondered why she would be looking for a Shot of Love on Glee!



  66. 66

    this chick looks like an asian kate hudson. asians rulz #1



  67. 67

    ew no. just…no.
    it's not that she's a bad singer, it's just that she's over hyped overrated, can't act and GODDAMN ANNOYING

  68. Rowen says – reply to this


    68

    Philippino or Filipino…both sounds alike…and the name Charice for an Asian?….The Philippines is the only asian country that is very americanized…after all the US freed us from Spanish occupation and US held Military bases in the country until 1991.



  69. 69

    I hate her fake singing.



  70. 70

    Re: xoxoBanz – SILLY SHE IS NOT 20..SHE JUST TURNED 18 THIS MONTH..OPEN UR MOUTH N FART..OPINION SHUD BE BACCK UP WITH FACTS..OK



  71. 71

    PERFECT!! :D



  72. 72

    So, we're losing either Mark Sailing or Kevin McHale but getting HER? No thanks.

    Keep Puck AND Artie and leave her back to her island popstardom.



  73. 73

    Re: xcalibur – . SO YOU FEEL IMPORTANT AND SMART WITH U SAYING ALL THIS? GO BACK TO YOUR BASEMENT AND SLEEP. LOL. I BET U LOOK UGLY AS UR WORDS. GET A LIFE!!



  74. 74

    AHHHHHHHHH OMGGGGGGGG i love charice bc i loooove oprah!!!!!!!

  75. Sam90 says – reply to this


    75

    yes this girl can sing, and she is immensely known in the world except in th us, i think she was worth more without the show, but hey if this is what it takes to make it in the us then go for it girl, i hope she can act. Even if she cant, shes got anhell of a voice



  76. 76

    Charice would be perfect for Glee, not just for her kick-ass pipes and vocal clarity, but because her story is akin to those kids in a Glee Club. Glee is about students ostracized by fellow classmates for doing what they love..that's singing, folks! They were trampled on, rejected, and made fun of just for wanting to sing. Some are perceived to be too fat, awkward, and not good-looking, but overall they were pretty much seen as freaks.

    Charice to go through all of this in her own life, and I'm sure will be getting more fro douche bags on Perez Hilton. She was trampled on by her fellow industry people in the Philippines, criticized as ugly (and sometimes fat), and very few really believed in her raw talent. But her love of singing, her choice to just ignore the negative forces around her, garnered her some very powerful fans, that has now mentored her and eventually given her a start in her (hopefully long standing) career.

    Charice is such a perfect choice for Glee… and I am wishing that this piece of news actually materializes.

    And to all that thinks she's overrated, I like to see your face after you expereince her singing live. Totally tifferent expreince from her YT vids.



  77. 77

    Re: PixiePeet – Fake singing? Apperently you have nver seen her live. I;d like to see your face after you actually see her live… Then you can talk. HAHAHAHAH!



  78. 78

    psstt, Mr Perez, the politcally correct word for "philippino" is Filipino (for a boy) or Filipina (for a girl) if it doesn't matter than no biggy..but I just thought that you wouldn't want to appear ignorant to your loyal Filipino followers.



  79. 79

    oh damn. I meant "then" not "than… *sighs*



  80. 80

    Re: ayjay286 – couldn't agree more!



  81. 81

    Man! I had a feeling this news was not confirmed. Her Philippine management are always too fast to jump on the gun! Discretion please! It's better not to talk too early rather than creating Buzz too early. Thanks Perez for grounding this piece of news. I remain hopeful, but not expectant (ist hat even a word?) hehehehe I still think as a minor character Charice would be great!



  82. 82

    Re: xcalibur – that's just first week sales, asstroll! the album is still new…and it's still selling. Let loose your diarrhea mouth when it falls out of the Top 200…and stop yelling you freak!



  83. 83

    Re: ayjay286 – that's definitely your opinion - not fact!



  84. 84

    Re: PixiePeet – You need to take your MEDS!



  85. 85

    I've seen her live and she sucked BIG time.

    So disgusted….

    I hate her so much.

    I hate her more than any other singer in the world.



  86. 86

    Charice on Glee??? Wow amazing!!!! She will be a great addition to the casts. Truthfully I don't watch the show but I will definitely watch it with the presence of Charice. I just lover her. She never seizes to amaze me!



  87. 87

    can you please say pinay and not "PHILIPPINO" geeze
    wow she looks like a really ugly tila tequila



  88. 88

    Re: PixiePeet – well continue hating her until you get a heart attack from jealousy. Haha! I feel sorry for you. She's getting more famous and there's nothing you can do about it. You saying she sucked bigtime is worthless compared to what Oprah thinks about her. You are just a nobody so who cares about what you think.



  89. 89

    Can't she not speak english very well? and although i like her, i dont like this choice.



  90. 90

    awww charice says she's not going to be on glee.. oh well, i don't care for that show anyway. hahjaha



  91. 91

    Re: poorlittlerichiegirl – ugh! people like you cause me to never want to log into this site again! That was so mean! I typically don't stick up for celebs on here, but in this case, I must make an exception. Charice is such a sweet and beautiful person (inside and out). She's totally angelic, so it angers me to hear people degrade her in any way.



  92. 92

    Re: caroaber – i don't get it either. guess i didn't get the memo. even my boyfriend wants me to dye my hair blonde!



  93. 93

    Re: Rowen – You will probably find a lot of Filipinos disagree with you about the US "freeing" us from Spanish colonization. In 1898, around the Spanish-American War, the Philippines declared independence from Spain — but neither the Spanish or the US recognized it and in the aftermath of the war, former Spanish colonies Puerto Rico, the Philippines and Guam went to the US. Filipinos tried again to have the US recognize their independence — hence the Philippine-American War, which Filipinos lost. Finally, they were granted independence after WW II, though many will say the US controlled the "puppet" filipino government during the Marcos era that lasted till the 1980s. And from what I've heard, many describe the American occupation of the Philippines as a second colonization. Although, all said and done, theoretical disputes of freedom/independence and the worst atrocities of colonialism aside, the Philippines always seems to have had more or less friendly relationships with its colonizers. What I mean is, to an extent, the Philippines in general have a certain affection for both the Spanish and Americans and, I think, Filipinos recognize a little bit of themselves in the foreigners who influenced their culture & history so much.



  94. 94

    Re: xoxoBanz – Js that not ALL of the cast is in their late 20s the guy who plays Kurt is only like 16 irl. and Charice is 18 so i really dont think that should be a problem is she were ever to become a regular



  95. 95

    I don't care if she's Filipino or Philippino, I hate her singing more than life.

    She sucked on that David Foster Special.
    She kept pounding her chest and looked so stupid.



  96. 96

    not true??? oh no! i wish it were. it would make my tuesdays much more exciting. she is a perfect fit for that show with her talent and her back story. a perfect fit. sigh…. i can only hope.



  97. 97

    Re: PixiePeet – well we read your comments and we clearly see you don't like charice… so why are you in this thread anyway? just to bash on charice? just to put charice down? just to downgrade her? just to throw vicious comments towards charice? and right in front of some of her fans? lol party pooper. you don't like her. okay fine, majority of us in this thread like her, now can you accept that? :)

  98. JCPR says – reply to this


    98

    not yet bitch! not that easy! lol



  99. 99

    yay! charice on becoming international pop star! i hope this news is true



  100. 100

    She wore a stupid baby doll dress made for a five year old on that David Foster special.

    I hate her so much.
    She makes my blood boil thinking about her. I thought I'd never have to hear her name again. I guess not. Ug!
