Matthew Morrison reads his ‘flirtatious’ DM to a SYTYCD contestant 
June 2nd, 2022 under Glee, SYTYCD. [ Comments: none ]

On Friday, it was announced that Matthew Morrison was fired from So You Think You Can Dance because he did not follow “production protocols.” So, that caused people to wonder what protocol did he break.

Then on Tuesday, People reported from sources that the actor was let go due to flirtatious DMs to a female contestant.

Today, the Glee star took to Instagram to defend himself by reading the DM he sent to the contestant. He explained that he and the dancer know the same choreographer, and he reached out to the contestant to get that choreographer’s number so that she could be a choreographer on the show.

But that is not what the DM said. Morrison read the DM, and he says it says, “Hey, it’s Matthew. If you don’t mind, would love to get your number and talk you through some things.”

You don’t have to work on a competition show to know that judges are not supposed to reach out to any contestant for any reason. We learned that from sitcoms like Night Court and Designing Women. Actually, didn’t Glee do that storyline?

Anyways, if that is the DM Morrison sent, I can kind of see where the dancer might have assumed he was coming on to her by saying, can I have your number so we can talk about how I can help you win the show.

That is why you have to be so careful when you send DMs to someone you don’t know because they can’t read the tone. He should’ve said, “Hi, it’s Mattew. Is there any way you have our choreographer friend’s number? I would like to call her and see if she is interested in being a choreographer on the show.”

Then she would’ve known what he meant. Either way, he should not have contacted her because that is playing favorites. And if the scandal was exposed, then it could be really bad for the show.

So the moral of the story is judges on competition shows don’t ever reach out to any contestants when the show is in production. However, after the contestant is eliminated or if they win the show, then you can reach out to them.

Morrison will be seen on next week’s pre-taped episode, and then for the live shows starting on June 15th, we will see a new judge in his place.

Is this why Matthew Morrison was fired from So You Think You Can Dance?

Over the weekend, Mattew Morrison announced that he was no longer part of So You Think You Can Dance because he did not follow “competition production protocols.”

Well, we were left to wonder what that meant. People suspected that it might be COVID related, and others thought that maybe the married actor was having an affair with one of the dancers.

Today, People is reporting that a source told them he “had an inappropriate relationship with a female contestant.”

But it sounds like it was one-sided. “They didn’t have sex, but he reached out to her through flirty direct messages on social media,” the source says. “She felt uncomfortable with his line of comments and went to producers, who then got Fox involved. He was fired after they did their own investigation.”

The two never met up, and their “relationship” was just over social media.

The magazine says neither Fox nor Morrison’s people would confirm or deny the story.

Morrison will be seen throughout the audition episodes, but he will be replaced by a new judge in time for the live episodes on June 15th.

I bet Fox wishes they kept Nigel Lythgoe. Maybe they will bring him back?

So You Think You Can Dance changed up the judges this season, and they brought on Twitch, JoJo Siwa, and Matthew Morrison. We haven’t even gotten to live shows, and one of those three is already out of the dancing competition.

“Having the opportunity to be a judge on So You Think You Can Dance was an incredible honor for me,” Morrison said in a statement. “Therefore, it is my deepest regret to inform you that I will be leaving the show. After filming the audition rounds for the show and completing the selection of the 12 finalists, I did not follow competition production protocols, preventing me from being able to judge the competition fairly. I cannot apologize enough to all involved and I will be watching alongside you all on what I know will be one of the best seasons yet.”

The Glee star did not say what “production protocol” he broke. So we are left to wonder what he did.

Fox says they will replace him, but they did not say with who. Who else is hoping they bring Nigel Lythgoe?

The live shows begin on June 15th.

The traumatic reason why Chris Colfer is taking a break from writing
September 28th, 2021 under Glee, Jimmy Fallon. [ Comments: none ]

We all know that Chris Colfer starred in Glee but did you know that he is an author now. In fact, he has released 18 books in just nine years.

However, after he finishes his next book, he is taking a break. He shared with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show yesterday why he is going to do that. He recently went to a bar, and there was a man hitting on him. While they were chatting, the man said that he enjoyed Colfer’s books as a kid.

The actor asked him how is that possible because the books only came out nine years ago. That is when the guy told him that he was 11 when he started reading his novels. After that, the 31-year-old decided he is going to take some time off. I guess he wants to put more of a distance between his age and his readers’ ages. Which totally makes sense.

What could he do with his time off? I am hoping he goes on the search for aliens. I love the way he described what it was like when he saw a UFO in Hollywood, most likely because his description was so sexual. Unlike his books.

His newest book, A Tale of Sorcery, is out now.

On July 8, 2020, Naya Rivera died in an accidental drowning. Yesterday, her Glee castmates reunited to pay tribute to her at the 32nd GLAAD Media Awards.

While Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, and Mark Saling were not part of it, Jacob Artist, Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Jessalyn Gilsig, Dot-Marie Jones, Vanessa Lengies, Jane Lynch, Kevin McHale, Heather Morris, Matthew Morrison, Alex Newell, Lauren Potter, Amber Riley, Harry Shum Jr., Becca Tobin, and Jenna Ushkowitz were.

They talked about what she meant to them, the LGBTQ community, and how much she loved being a mom. The sixteen of them did a sweet job remembering their castmate and more importantly friend.
