Designer Donatella Versace hosted a runway launch yesterday in New York City for the Versus Versace line, and an eclectic mix of celebrities were in attendance. Darren Criss, Colton Haynes, Hayden Panettiere, Christian Siriano, goth ex-Gossip Girl Taylor Momsen and even Woody Allen.
Hard to imagine Woody Allen (or indeed anyone over 20) wearing anything from the Versus Versace line. The runway models both male and female were all so young and shockingly skinny…

New York — The slow, lingering demise of "Smash" has felt more like a punch to the gut to the folks on Broadway.
The TV series about the making of a big stage musical came with a flurry of attention and some big names: Steven Spielberg, Debra Messing and Anjelica Huston. It was going to be a valentine to Broadway.
Sometimes, though, love letters get sent back.
After a first season with a healthy-sized audience averaging 7.7 million viewers, it returned this year to such dismal ratings it was banished to Saturday night. It won't be back for a third season.
But while TV was finally focusing on Broadway, plenty of stage veterans jumped to TV during the two-year run of "Smash." Some flamed out, some are holding on and some still hope:
The ratings for Fox's Glee series have been dropping for awhile. Will they fall low enough to see the TV series cancelled? That's the real drama.
These are the TV show's ratings for the 2012-13 season, the best way to tell if Glee is going to be cancelled or renewed for season five.
The fourth season of Glee typically airs Thursday nights at 9pm on the Fox network. The large cast includes Amber Riley, Chord Overstreet, Chris Colfer, Cory Monteith, Darren Criss, Dianna Agron, Harry Shum, Heather Morris, Jane Lynch, Jayma Mays, Jenna Ushkowitz, Kevin McHale, Lea Michele, Mark Salling, Matthew Morrison, and Naya Rivera.
These figures will be updated as the weeks progress so be sure to bookmark and return to this page:

Below you can see Darren Criss pressure a young girl on camera to accompany him to this year’s Vma’s.
Just kidding! Actually, this is a very sweet episode of Random Acts Of MTV U, in which Darren surprises Leora Friedman, a junior at Princeton University, who at the age of 15 began the organization Music Is Medicine, which helps seriously ill pediatric patients.

As most of you know, Fox's Glee has become an absolute smash hit over the past couple years, giving fans the chance to see some great performances of talented actors showing off their singing voices at the same time. So when one of the show's main men Darren Criss was asked to belt out some [...]

Kristen Wiig makes her much-anticipated first return to Saturday Night Live tonight after leaving at the end of last season. After a week of weird last time with Zach Galifianakis, Wiig’s fans are likely hoping the show goes two-for-two on the zany front, allowing Wiig to bring back some of her favorites such as Penelope or Target Lady. (Sorry, but in my opinion the Gilly drink with Justin Timberlake was more than enough of that character this season.)
Much like Timberlake earlier this year, it’ll be interesting to see if the show plays like a DVD repeat of »

Hello fellow queer cinephiles! As we enter the long, hot days of summer, everyone wants to cool off in a theater and watch other people try to save the world. The summer tends to be a pretty testosterone-soaked season for movies, so I’m here to help you sort the films you want to be in the front row for from those you just use as an excuse to cuddle in the back.
Editor's note: * denotes a film that includes openly lesbian/bi actresses or lesbian/bi characters.
Venus and Serena
You’re there to see: Venus and Serena Williams, obviously.
In a nutshell: Who doesn’t want to know more about the two sisters who changed tennis forever? This one’s a must-see for any lesbian with a pair of athletic shoes.

His depth of knowledge is prodigious when it comes to TV themes from the eighties and nineties, as is apparent from this video via Buzzfeed.
Does it seem like he treats not knowing the 7th Heaven theme as a badge of honor?

Glee’s Jane Lynch begins a summer run on May 16 in the Broadway revival of Annie, playing the boozy and bawdy orphanage manager Miss Hannigan, who torments the titular red-haired girl. (Lynch is replacing current star Katie Finneran.) The actress rehearsed for the part this winter in L.A. while she wrapped up the fourth season of Glee.
Lynch admits that the role shares similarities with her villainous Glee character, Sue Sylvester, and says the two characters would probably be pals in real life. “I think Miss Hannigan would look up to Sue because Sue is much more stealth and »

Previously on Glee, Rachel was tripping balls on nostalgia at her Funny Girl audition, so she hallucinated Original New Directions onto the stage with her, where they Didn't Stop Believin' together again. Blaine made it plain that he wanted to spend all his days of all of his life with perfect human being Kurt Hummel, even if they were still mostly broken up (but still hooking up at literally every opportunity). Brittany pulled down a perfect Sat score. And Ryder was teetering very near the edge of an apoplectic brain hemorrhage because these writers have a memory worse than Finding Nemo's Dory but his stupid catfishing storyline just would not go away.
Back when I used to watch American Idol, my favorite thing was when some girl would walk into the room and say she was going to sing Mariah or Whitney or »
A great many things happen in the "Glee" Season 4 finale, "All or Nothing." Brittany deals with being a sudden and MIT-bound genius. Ryder finds out the identity of his catfishing buddy. Rachel has a "Funny Girl" callback.
There's a proposal. There's a wedding. And many people sing many songs.
Do any of these things lead to season-ending resolution? Not really, but there's plenty to entertain you on the way.
Good Brittany S. Pierce
Kids, if you want to go to college, you should study hard, ace the Sat and have a bunch of activities. Doodling on the back of a Scantron sheet really isn't enough.
And you can find any pattern you want in randomness if you try hard enough. Just saying ...
"Brittany, it's possible that you might be the most brilliant scientific mind since Albert Einstein."
Rachel is all alone
But she can sing really good. Not that it matters. »
Spoiler Alert: Do not read the following article if you've yet to watch Glee's season four finale. Seriously, you've been warned, so don't be that guy who complains about spoilers in the comments. Everyone hates that guy! So. Much. To. Process. Glee's season four finale was jam-packed with action, including the answers to several burning questions, such as, who in the glee club was Catfishing Ryder (Blake Jenner)? And if Blaine (Darren Criss) would really put a ring on it (it being Kurt's (Chris Colfer) finger, by season's end? Oh, and did we finally find out if Rachel (Lea Michele) landed her dream Broadway gig? Plus, Santana (Naya Rivera) and Brittany (Heather Morris) shared a »
Plus, an original character says goodbye and Ryder meets his catfish on the May 9 season finale of ‘Glee.’
A ring was purchased, plans were made and a wedding did happen on the season finale of Glee. However, it was who got married that left us speechless!
Ryder Comes Face To Face With Catfish
Ryder (Blake Jenner) threatens New Directions — he won’t compete in Regionals until he finds out who’s catfish-ing him. He asks everyone to take out their phones, gets a bit violent and finally, Marley (Melissa Benoist) admits she’s catfish.
Marley begs to talk to Ryder, but he’s extremely upset. Before she can get many words out, Unique (Alex Newell) asks her to stop and confesses to being the real catfish. Ryder says he’ll never speak to Unique again.
Before going on stage at Regionals, Ryder admits that he’ll be quitting the glee club after the competition. »

Fox's Glee wraps up its fourth season Thursday with an hour that puts the spotlight on the couples who helped pave the way for Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss) when Patty Duke and Meredith Baxter guest star as a lesbian couple who mentor the young fan favorites. In "All or Nothing," Oscar-winner Duke plays a jewelry store owner named Jan who meets Blaine while the latter is shopping for a ring for his on-again, off-again boyfriend, Kurt. Jan sees a bit of herself in Blaine and invites the high school senior fired up about

Glee is heading toward its fourth season finale this week, which means we’ll be closing out this season with some of the best performances we’ve seen yet. Finale’s are always the episodes reserved for the best ideas and most dramatic moments and will often include big name guest stars. Season 4’s “All or Nothing” will put the New Directions up against their rivals at Regionals, but their biggest threat is the lead singer of the Hoosierdaddies, played by American Idol runner-up Jessica Sanchez. It’s her Glee debut but her vocal ability and obvious joy just being there gives her the appearance like she’s always belonged in this world.
In a behind-the-scenes video for the episode, Sanchez talks about what it was like to play Frida Romero, her diva of a character. Of course she’s going to say she’s nothing like her character and I believe it. »

We have a Days of Our Lives liveblog today for all your WilSon action.
Meredith Baxter says that Chris Colfer and Darren Criss “were absolutely darling.” She also says that she’s not doing it to make a social statement. “I’m on Glee, I don’t have to make a social statement. It’s done. They are doing their jobs right there and just by being able to talk about how far we’ve come and being an example of that to these young boys, that’s a social statement and you don’t have to walk with a limp or have a squinty eye to show, ‘Oh, I’m gay. That’ll set me apart.’ People are just gay. It’s a sense of normalcy: ‘Oh, »

While most of the episode's action will necessarily be at the Regionals competition, Rachel (Lea Michele) has to face her big audition alone.
Guest star Patty Duke offers advice on rings and more.

Wedding bells certainly seem as if they could be ringing in Glee's fourth season finale as Blaine is definitely caught up in the wave of excitement washing over the country as same-sex marriage continues to inch closer to being legal in all 50 states. During the Fox musical's penultimate hour of the season, Blaine (Darren Criss) went so far as to ask Burt (Mike O'Malley) permission to marry his son, Kurt (Chris Colfer). What he didn't count on, however, was for Burt to continue being the voice of reason and warn the teenager that there's no reason he should

Plus, a series regular may be departing the series at the close of season four on May 9. All I can say is: Lord Tubbington better not be going anywhere!
Blaine (Darren Criss) may be proposing to Kurt (Chris Colfer) on the season finale of Glee on May 9, but will they actually walk down the aisle? According to HollywoodLife.com’s sister site TVLine’s Michael Ausiello, “somebody’s getting married!” So will that somebody be Kurt?
‘Glee’ Season Finale Spoilers
When a fan asked if someone would be leaving the series at the end of this season, Michael Ausiello of HollywoodLife.com sister site TVLine said, “Thursday’s finale definitely leaves you with the impression that a pivotal, longtime character will not be back next season — at least not full-time. That said, I have received no confirmation that the actor/actress in question is, in fact, departing the show.”
