Lea Michele Refuses To Leave Glee!

| Filed under: GleeLea Michele


She's not going down without a fight!

With Ryan Murphy's recent announcement that he plans on replacing the high school cast of Glee when they "graduate" in 2012, Lea Michele is absolutely positive she'll remain on the show no matter what!

Lea told sources, "Maybe I would come back as a teacher on Glee."

Hmm. That's a possibility, but we doubt that will happen. Doesn't she want her character to go off to college??

    Actually, 2012 is when Ryan Murphy will START to graduate original cast members. He's trying to make this realistic and all but he's no idiot. If you read the interview he had originally he talks about it.

    But do you honestly think he'll let her or Chris Colfer go that easily? He's already bumped back their characters' ages. Kurt had a car last season but this one he's a sophomore, Rachel was identified as a softmore last season but later within in it her birthdate was listed as December 18'th, 1994 which would make her too young to be a junior in highschool.

    she thinks the show wont survive without her… stuck up b*tch has gotten too big for her boots

    Who are we kidding? Lea Michele is an exact copy of her character. I've watched her in interviews, I've read the reports - she makes herself into Rachel. She talks about her audition for Glee and says that the casting director loved her because she was just like Rachel. What she doesn't seem to realize is that nobody likes Rachel! In season one, she was somewhat likable. Now she's just bratty and obnoxious. I can't wait for her to graduate.

    one more reason to hope for the apocalypse

  8. 8

    No! Why can't the show just follow them to college? It will make it more interesting!!

  9. 9

    Yes pls get rid of her. I'm glad that the show is finally showcasing some of the other talent…. even though we do have to listen to her crap and see her fugly singing face/lips most of the time.
    I can't wait to see a new cast.

    You know, she's a beautiful young woman, but she already looks five or six years too old to be in high school.

  11. 11

    when the glee cast graduates, i'll stop watching

  12. 12

    i dont see her making it in acting outside of glee. and i think she knows that

  13. 13

    Bitch knows she doesn't have a career without Glee.

  14. 14

    Way to spin a story. She was just throwing it out there she know that isn't a possilbity.


  15. 15

    Re: TigerMonkey – she didn't say that at all.

  16. 16

    Re: xoxo_anonymous – please she has been working in show business for 16 years now. She has Broadway if nothing else.

    Plus all she said was she could come back as a teacher she never said she refused to leave or that the show wouldn't work without her.

    Re: ohwellyeah – she never said the casting director loved her cause she was just like Rachel. She said little did she know she was doing things just like Rachel. Clean you ears. I love Rachel, driven and know what she wants . Good for her. Fine if you don't like her but don't make up lies about her.

  18. 18

    I'm with Lea on this. Ryan Murphy wtf is wrong with you? We didn't fall in love with the concept of Glee, we fell in love with the characters! Stupid idea/move!

  19. 19

    She is fugly, obnoxious, and I wouldnt mind her dissapearing.

  20. 20

    SO over her.

    I enjoy the show, but if they had to replace all the main characters with new ones you are then walking on a thin line with me…it's almost at that point to much like Degrassi or any soap opera at that point…and i can't stand soaps. I like to follow a characters growth and progression. At that point the show is about the school and not the kids.

    who cares if she is like rachel. rachel is part of what makes this show so good. as far as reality goes. the first season the teacher was paying $64 a month to the school to keep the glee club yet they managed a continuous flow of great costumes and elaborate productions…without money. sure it's unlikely but it would no more unlikely than these students lasting six years. there are many other examples of these types of fantasies but who cares. it's entertaining. if this man is concerned about jumping the shark, he should rattle himself and the other writers and get this show back on track and away from where it has been going this season. i thought it was a comedy. if i want socially conscious programming, i can get it elsewhere. tv does not have to be about reality. this is not a family show. there is no obligation on the part of those involved to produce arcs that address today's teen issues. nor is obligated to give an exact representation of teens and their lives during high school. there are many 6 year students. There was the 6 year senior in one of the first episodes who danced for vocal adrenaline who was 24 years old. he was failed grade 12 6 years to keep him because he was the only one who could execute a particular move. is that likely? no. did anybody care? no.

    Go the way of Beverly Hills 90210 - follow the characters into college, 1st jobs, etc! Let them develop and take us (the audience) along for the ride!!

  25. 25

    She better start auditioning for other TV roles….if not..back to Broadway where she really belongs.

    If he finds just the right people with just the right talent it can work. Lea Michele is loved on the "big white way" so i'm sure she'll fall right back into place. If she does want to teach she can. You don't need a college degree to teach. I teach and I am three credits short of a college degree. At least not in CT you don't need one.

    Re: xcalibur – If you read above many people mention this. On top of that this show made her famous around America, but her career before the show is what landed her the show in the first place. Her lead in Spring Awakening Was a big thing, the show won a Tony, so she was known, shes just bigger now. I'm sure A LOT of places will give her a job.

  28. 28

    I'm sure there are other talented young artists who can make a name for themselves as new cast members of Glee, as long as the writers continue to create good content and interesting stories.

    Re: CatAttack – even though Rachel is born in December doesn't mean she is too young because I know people who are born in the late months who will be graduating at the age of 17 so they are on track. bye bye lea Michele in 2012 (ooo that rhymes.)

    I think the show is not what it once was in the first season, and after the wedding show it was pretty much the Chris Colfer show. The last episode was better, but I would like the show better if it had more of a plot. Most of the time the plot seems lost. As far as the kids graduating it seems like there are so many people on this show anymore that it is getting confusing, and then with the guest spots the show is going to run over itself quickly. Honestly it will burn out just like Ally McBeal did or faster. That show was all the rage for a while because it covered new ground had great music and people got sick of it fast. Glee tries to give a message and it is getting old fast as well.

    Lea Michele is what I love the most from Glee: her acting chops and powerful voice is the strength of the show. The show needs her to sing in most of the songs because she adds the X factor into a song. It's hard to find someone equally talented in everything they do amongst the opportunist, untalented young Hollywood nowadays.

  32. 32

    Make them be a college glee club or something, its gonna suck without the originals!!

  33. 33

    if Lea wasnt on the show i probably wouldnt watch, who wants to watch a show where everyone gets along! thats just BORING!!

  34. 34

    Teacher = college education. Duh? If she DOES come back to Glee after 'graduation', she'd come back as an aide, if anything.

  35. 35

    Re: mcbjay – i ment acting on tv. without something musical around her….shes not that great. IMO..shes wasting her time with glee and should focus purely on broadway.

  36. 36

    How about we just replace Glee with a show that doesn't suck fat donkey cock?

  37. 37

    She is the most talented of them all. And she always will have her singing chops to fall back to. Some of the people that commented above may not like her, but to say she´s not talented is ridiculous. Cory, on the other hand, I think is over hyped.

    GLEE will SUCK without the originals Especially Rachel aka Lea Michele. SHe makes the show

    For those old enough to remember "Fame," this has been done before.

    "Leroy Johnson" came back as a dance instructor, not a full teacher. "Danny Amatullo" never graduated because he kept failing English.

    So, maybe "Rachel Berry" can go to college near Lima and come back as a teacher's aide.

    And maybe my favorite, the beautiful and talented but vapid "Brittany S. Pierce," never graduates, just like Danny. However, as long as I can see Heather Morris in another series … like a spin-off with Naya Rivera … I am OK with it.

    I just can't see this show being great forever. It's in kind of a sophomore slump right now anyway. Plus the fans have split up in camps so that the writers, producers, etc., can't possibly please them all.

    This week, the people that want to see Mercedes, Tina, Santana, Mike, Artie and Brittany (me!) featured more were thrown a bone, but the Finchel crowd was whining worse than Rachel herself all over the Internet.
