Did Lea Michele Get Charice Axed From Glee?!

| Filed under: TV NewsCelebrity FeudsGleeChariceLea Michele


Frankly, we wouldn't be surprised!

Everyone knows that there's only room for one DIVA STAR on set, and her name is Lea Michele!

Many fans were left equal parts confused and disappointed when Charice only appeared briefly as Sunshine Corazon in three episodes of Glee last season, despite being reportedly scheduled for five, and according to a source from the show, this snub was not due to shiteous writing, but because producers were afraid to ruffle a certain someone's feathers!

The insider explains:

“Charice was signed for a minimum of five episodes and did a press junket with [fellow new star] Chord Overstreet. She had a big debut, but things changed and they didn’t put her back in. The word is, Lea is the big star, and producers want to keep her happy.”

Yeesh! We certainly hope that this is not the case, but then again…it would make sense!

Then again, there were so many elements of the story last year that were thrown by the wayside or flat-out abandoned, that we could just as easily imagine that they just didn't know how to work her in between all of the other stunt-casting!

Hey - just saying!

Either way, we sincerely hope that this year, she is given the chance to return and show off those pipes once gain!

What do U think was REALLY going down behind the scenes?

  1. 1

    In my opinion Charice is the better singer, so it could be true.

  2. 2

    I don't think that's true at all. It's pretty obvious that the glee writers just kind of make it up as they go along. They probably just wanted charice on the show, but didn't know what to do with her story line.

  3. 3

    She got axed from Glee because she couldn't act to save her life.

  4. 4

    I actually liked her character. :( Hopefully she can come back for season 3!

  5. 5

    I'd rather see Lea MIchele anyway. Charice deserves a Disney channel show.

  6. 6

    i would like to believe that it's becuase of charice's tight schedule. her acting was okay despite the limited storyline. i believe she has a movie coming out. and i hope she'll be part of OWN.

  7. 7

    the producer did not honor his words that charice will have 5 big episodes. Maybe rumors were true. If you noticed, all of charice songs were edited like "all by myself" where charice did not give it all. I guess they are protecting Lea Michelle…Is she insecured of Charice singing prowess? Ryan Murphy wake up!!! Last season of Glee Dis well in TV ratings because of Charice…and that's a fact.

    Re: downwithgaga – Oh right, because all the other actors are future Oscar winners lol

  9. 9

    oh please! they didnt know what to do with charice when she was on the show in the first place.. she had what 7 scenes? at most?

  10. 10

    It sounds to close to the actual story line of the characters for me to 100% believe it. And if it is true then I lost respect for Lea, Charice and her are not competition… they have a completely different vibe. But I also don't believe it so W/E

  11. 11

    I'm don't think this is true but either way Charice was on 3 episodes to many. I hated her character and I'm glad she wasn't on more. Plus she can act either!

  12. 12

    Her character was lame, and she was an awkward actress. The show really does not need her at all.

  13. 13

    you forgot to add the part in the article where it said a glee rep said this simply isn't true it was because of her busy schedule that she couldn't come back and that Lea had nothing to do with it. Wow Perez you're so two faced saying in one article that you're so excited to hang out with her and JGroff to her face then trashing her saying "it wouldn't surprise you" on your blog

  14. 14

    it's okay, charice is making more money than lea (x6) lol

  15. 15

    Something tells me that this chick, Lea, isn't that different from the character she plays on this show. I get that vibe.

    Either way, I could give less of a shit. Dianna Agron is the babe of the show! More Agron!

  16. 16

    Charice can sang her little booty off, but the girl can't act to save her life. Just sayin'

  17. 17

    Re: Enrique_Madrid – how can u say when she has limited story line. her acting was fine. needs improvement but it was okay.

  18. 18

    fuck Chaarice what about Mercedes!!! Shes a decent actress and a great singer and one of the original cast members and she still doesnt have a real story line!!! I mean did you see how they just STUCK her with Sam LAME!

  19. 19

    Lea has such a nasally voice.. I don't know how anyone can stand it!!

  20. 20

    I found Charice annoying as an actress … and watching her sing is equally painful with all her gesticulations. I was happy to NOT see her on the show. Her singing is good, but with all the auto-tuning, does it matter?

  21. 21

    Charice was akward, Lea michele is genius and even though she comes off strong I really don't believe this, Can't wait for season three, hope they don't screw it up…

  22. 22

    This is stupid. Lea is as good a singer and way better actress. Plus taking the Charice character away gave Rachel nothing but a dud storyline. I know people want to make Lea out to be this huge bitch diva but this is silly. Charice didn't have the goods pure and simple.

  23. 23

    Re: trinigirl123 – them why is Lea fine with Idina Menzle . Kristin Chenowith or Amber Riley all great singers too?

  24. 24

    Ugh, who cares why, I'm just glad I don't have to see her face or hear her voice. I can't stand Charice. Blech.

  25. 25

    i really hope they start cutting lea character back a bit. her voice is nasally and one of the worst on the show. i cringe everytime i hear it. they should start letting the true talents shine a bit more instead of being worried about pissing lea off.

  26. 26

    Let's hope this is the best season ever! Charice has a very good voice both ladies are fine.

  27. 27

    Me, too, I believe that Lea had something to do with Charice limited airtime–her mega-VOCAL singing abilities must have made Lea soooo insecure!

    And even for such a small role Sunshine’s character diverted sooo much world-wide attention from Rachel to her! Rachel’s character sums it up right (kudos to the Glee writers)–”I hated you because you are GOOD”…yeah right Lea!

  28. 28

    I honestly don´t care about this girl, at end is true Lea is the only star :D and I don´t want new character!!!

  29. 29

    Charice is one of the best singers in the world and she is truly amazing!
    I think she has improved so much in terms of her acting especially during the Nationals part of Glee- it take time and experience to get there and I think she is getting there!

  30. 30

    I think GLEE should get CHARICE! She is also a huge, huge star and I do hope she could be full time there on glee!

    I agree with the comment because Ryan Murphy confirmed that Charice would be on 5 episodes but it became 3 episodes and her song numbers were lessened as well as her appearances.

  31. 31

    CHARICE is the best singer in the WORLD! She is very humble and a very good role model for the youth today!

    She is also very beautiful and her voice is simply spectacular (beyond words!)

    I think Amber Riley and Charice are the best singers on GLEE!

    Lea is very good and is the star of the show but in terms of overall vocal ability it is between Charice and Amber Riley!

  32. 32

    CHARICE is the kindest and THE MOST TALENTED IN THE WORLD! HER VOICE is the greatest voice I have ever heard and she sings those big notes in the most effortless fashion! SHE IS TRULY ONE OF THE GREATEST SINGERS EVER and even the great LEA MICHELE may also be intimidated.

    LEA's voice is very broadway unlike CHARICE's voice which is very versatile and incredible!

  33. 33

    I love CHARICE so much! Her album was perfect and when you see her perform live- GOOSEBUMPS!

    I have had the greatest pleasure of seeing her a lot of times perform and she really has this incredible ability to move people with her voice.

    She is also an exemplary role model and a wonderful singer and person that all of us should emulate.

    I was sad that they cut the appearances of Charice to just 3 when she was signed to play for 5 episodes.

    I heard she recorded more songs for the season and has a much grander finale compared to what was shown on tv. But Lea was very insecure so asked them to axe Charice so that she would have the spotlight. If this was true then it is truly saddening. Talent should learn to love and respect great talent and not be intimated with it.

    In life we would find more and more people who are greater than us. SO it is important to remain humble and not let all the success get into the head.

  34. 34

    Great News!!! Charice is coming back to reprise her role as Sunshine Corazon. Isn't this what really Glee producers wanted? They made a Glee Rep create a buzz regarding Lea and Charice for another diva off cat-fight duet. For Lea's character, finchel story is not working anymore. They tried bringing back Jessie to spice up her role but still didn't worked. Guess what? The season 2 finale interaction between the two made it… I reviewed Charice acting from the 3 episodes. As a newbie in acting, Charice really did it convincingly good that some people misjudged her acting. They forgot that Sunshine is a foreign exchange student, means english is secondary language/non-fluent.

  35. 35

    CHARICE is one of the great FILIPINOS in HOLLYWOOD together with NICOLE SCHERZINGER, ENRIQUE IGLESIAS, APL of THE BLACK EYES PEAS, BRUNO MARS, other stars include Cassie.
    LEA SALONGA who should also appear on GLEE! ARNEL PINEDA of JOURNEY, CHAD HUGO of the Neptunes, A member of FAR EAST MOVEMENT

  36. 36

    Madonna ruled

  37. 37

    Charice really improved a lot compared to the first few episodes where she was shown. Her voice is GINORMOUS! How is it possible to have that kind of voice in such a small frame.

  38. 38

    I do hope that CHARICE would come back in GLEE or the new musical of KATHERINE MCPHEE. I heard her new song LOUDER and it is used as the song for the video of OWN!

  39. 39

    Lea is bordering on being a crazed cokewhore. She's not a very pleasant person at all. She treats people like crap, is demanding, has attitude issues, & major personality flaws. After Glee, I can't see her doing anything else or anyone wanting to work with her.

  40. 40

    Just starting this rumor, Lea has lost the fanatical Filipino fans. They love their celebrities (international and countrymen). You disrespect, you loose a hell of a lot of fans. They are hardcore like that.

  41. 41

    People are so willing to say that lea michele is a diva with a bad attitude but until you actually know her personally then I would comment that she is rude. I personally believe she had nothing to do with charice getting axed I think the writers had no idea how to fit her into the storyline because the make it up as they go. It was also said originally that the warblers were only supposed to be on for 1 or 2 episodes but they were on a lot more than just two. plus there was only supposed to pick 1 glee project winner but all four are going to appear. Lea Michele is a great singer as is charice. Maybe charice will be back for season 3 we dont know how the writers are writing the storylines.

    I love Charice. Wish her all the best no matter what. Haters gonna hate.

    Re: mashimoro – Sorry but Charice doesn't so autotuned.

  44. 44

    Frankly, my dear, I give a damn! But Lea did not only feel threatened - just by being herself, Charice threatened to sing her off the top of McKinley High!

  45. 45

    looooooooove Charice!

  46. 46

    Re: stupidkibbles3 – I can tell by that stupid pic of you that you are an expert on what is lame and who is talented. get a life bud

  47. 47

    Charice is a Pro when it comes to singing, but a rookie at acting, Remember this was her first role in acting. In singing she blew the walls and ceiling out. So give her a break. And to you people who say you hate her , what did she ever do to you to get your panties in a knot????????? geeezzzz , what lame comments, what do know about her life and where she came from. Where ever she proforms she gets standing ovations all around the world!!!!!!! She is very talented, very smart, learns quickly and has a growing fan base of millions.

  48. pj88 says – reply to this


    Don't believe it.. but, I'd rather watch Lea anyday. Her first episode was "cute" and yes, she does have a great voice… but her personality/acting does not match that of the other characters. She would have been kicked out in the second week of THE GLEE PROJECT… lol

  49. 49

    Or perhaps it was the fact that I think a paper bag could act better than she could that got her axed. Watching her was just painful. I'm not sure who all of the 'fans' you are talking about who were disappointed. I know me and my friends were simply because whenever there is a horribly acted line on Glee we take a drink and pretty much everything she said was a drink and we got rather intoxicated on her episodes…

  50. 50

    charice who? you mean the awkward girl that can sing but cant act to save her life and is very hard to look at?

  51. 51

    I wouldn't doubt it. You can tell that fame has clearly gone to Lea Michelle's head. I used to like her, but now every time I see her, I just want to punch her in the face. She acts like she's the best singer in the world. Frankly, her voice annoys me.

  52. 52

    Good riddance! Have you seen Charice’s HUGE round face on a 60’’ HD screen? Scarier that Leah’s big semitic nose!

  53. 53

    At least Charice looks like a high school kid!!!

  54. 54

    without a doubt, she completely lacked the acting chops for a show like Glee. Great voice, but she couldn't bring the character to life - thats more than enough reason to give'r the boot.

  55. 55

    I don't think this is true at all. Lea Michele doesn't seem to be a diva but more of a perfectionist who is hard on herself and wants the best from everyone else around her as well. I think that is admirable.

    Ryan Murphy and his writing team has been pretty fickle through the history of "Glee", jumping on whatever bandwagon that would be popular among the fans. If Charice was axed it was because of writing and other character's stories taking too much space. Charice's character isn't the only character not getting enough storylines during last season.

  56. 56

    lea michele is awesome. i just love her

  57. 57

    I think both Charice and Lea is above all this it could be a method of putting out feelers from the fans. I enjoy Glee and became a fan of Charice because of Glee. Unfortunately It would be kind of underhanded just to stir up this kind of trouble and you do not upset the Chasters they are like pitbulls when it comes to defending Charice.

    i just hope this is not true. i like them both but i like charice more.

    Re: trinigirl123 – i'll agree with you

  60. 60

    I for one am glad Charice will not return to Glee. She is too big for TV. If she stayed, she might become like the rest of the cast members, 20 people sharing an hour of airtime. What she's doing now with movies, concerts and albums is much better for her.

  61. 61

    The only this Lea Michelle have is Glee, without it she´s nothing really. She´s geeting older too. I knew it all along. It so obvious what really happened. The first episode where Charice was, that scene was shown in ther gala opening. Everybocy was so amazed with Charice and gave her a warm welcome. Then came the interviews with Chord Overstreet who didn´t do much in the first episode but maintain his part in each episodes. Prove only there´s no jealousy in the mens permanent cast. It reminds me when Glee cast was guested in Oprah. She asked everybody who among the cast who portrays their characters but really resemble them in real life. Without hesitation, the whole cast pointed their fingers toward Lea Michelle. And we all know the character of Rachel Berry, a spoiled, dominant envious student. By just looking in her big nose, that says it all.
