The Price of Glee shows the price the Glee cast paid
January 16th, 2023 under DIscovery Networks/Discovery+, Glee. [ Comments: none ]

In 2008, we fell in love with the cast of Glee. Just 12 years later, three of them would be dead. Tonight at 9p on ID, we learn about The Price of Glee and the toll it had on everyone’s life who was part of the series.

Things seemed like they were as swell for the cast of Glee as what we saw on television, but it was not. In the three-part series, we learn what it was like to work on the show. And it was a challenging job for so many reasons.

Before they got the roles, they had to audition. One actor sent in a video of him playing fake drums. One person got into a car accident on the way to their audition and was pulling glass out of their hair throughout it. And can you guess who lied about their age?

Finally, it was time for them to shoot the pilot. There was so much unknown, like if the show would succeed. However, whoever watched the episode, knew it was going to be a hit. And soon after it debuted, the cast might’ve wished it failed.

In order to be a cast member, you need to be a triple threat. But not all of the actors could sing, dance, and act. So along with filming their scenes, they had to take singing lessons, dance rehearsals, voiceover classes, and record the songs in the studio for the albums. As a result, there were times when they were working over 100 hours a week. And just when they thought they were going on hiatus, they were sent out on tour. So they were never able to rest.

If that is not enough, they were instant stars. People were jumping the fence at the studio to get closer to their favorite Glee cast member. They were afraid for their safety. So they had to build a wall between the trailers and the stage so that no one could get in. In fact, at least one actor had to move out of their house because security thought it was the safest thing to do.

But what security couldn’t protect them against was the effect it was having on them. Cory Monteith suffered from drug and alcohol addiction when he was a teenager. He was able to get himself clean long before Glee, but was the stress of being famous too much for him? The show spoke to his former roommate and people who worked on the show, and you will get to hear their take on it. Then, the hairdresser, who worked on the show, says something that will haunt you.

Something that has also haunted us is how Naya Rivera died. The show will talk to an expert who might be able to give some insight into what happened that fateful day in the river. While her father gives us insight into his daughter.

Her father talks about the time she dated Mark Salling, and he cheated on her. Were there clues that the show might’ve known about his horrible secret that led to him taking his own life?

And it is no secret that Lea Michele was not well-liked by her cast members. So what do the crew and other cast members have to say about her?

Along with all of the above, they talk about the crew members who died.

The three hours go quickly because we learned so much about their time on the show and after it ended. I left out so much, like who was the reason they went back into production so shortly after Monteith died and the effect it had on everyone but that person.

If you are a fan of Glee, you are not going to want to miss The Price of Glee tonight on ID and streaming on Discovery+.

The Price of Glee asks if the show is cursed
December 8th, 2022 under DIscovery Networks/Discovery+, Glee. [ Comments: none ]

In 2009, we fell in love with Glee. And 13 years later, we are obsessed with the awful things that happened to the cast since its debut.

No one is more infatuated with their demise than ID, so they are bringing us The Price of Glee on January 16th.

The special will look at how “In May 2009, 10 young actors made their TV debut on Glee. By 2020, all of them would be famous. And three of them would be dead.”

What a fucking tagline. But so fucking true. One overdosed, one committed suicide while being investigated for child pornography, and one died saving her son.

So you have to wonder, is this show cursed? Because what other scripted series had a cast with so many controversies as this one? None.

Therefore, I can’t wait to hear what they found out when the 3-part limited series.

Amber Riley was crowned the winner of the 8th season of The Masked Singer yesterday. The actress also won Dancing with the Stars in 2013. So I guess you can say her post-Glee career is only winning via competition shows.

Chris Colfer reveals why he won’t go see Funny Girl
October 12th, 2022 under Chris Colfer, Glee, Lea Michele. [ Comments: none ]

Chris Colfer is in NYC, so you have to wonder if he is going to see his Glee co-star, Lea Michele, in Funny Girl. Well, Michelle Collins had him on her Sirius XM radio show, so she asked him for us.

Is the author going to go to see Rachel Barry as Fanny Brice? He told her, “No, I can be triggered at home!” And with that, the temperature suddenly dropped in Manhattan, and they skipped fall and immediately entered winter in the city.

And now, Colfer is my favorite person from Glee.

On the list of scandals from the musical comedy, this wouldn’t even make the list. To find out what will make it, we will have to watch the 3-part docuseries that is coming to Discovery+. According to Deadline, several of the cast members will be interviewed for the program. I really hope they get Colfer to sing like a canary.

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.
