Update: Since Lea Michele’s apology, other co-stars have spoken out against her disrespectful behavior, with many shunning her apology.
Glee’s Heather Morris took to Twitter to explain that Michele was unpleasant to work with adding that she “SHOULD be called out.”

Spring Awakening‘s Gerard Canonico fired back said Michele was “nothing but a nightmare.”
“Seems to have been deleted. So I’ll try again. You were nothing but a nightmare to me and fellow understudy cast members,” commented on her apology post. “You made us feel like we didn’t belong there. I tried for years to be nice to you to no avail. Maybe actually apologize instead of placing the blame on how others ‘perceive’ you. You’ll probably just delete this though.”
Since Samatha Ware called Lea Michele out for her toxic behavior on the set of Glee, fans have been waiting to see how or if Michele would respond.
The actress posted a lengthy statement on Instagram Wednesday night addressing Ware’s comments from earlier in the week which called Michele out for making her life a “living hell” when she was a guest star on the Fox musical drama.
Michele addressed her behavior and took responsibility writing: “While I don’t remember ever making this specific statement and I have never judged others by their background or color of their skin, that’s not really the point. What matters is that I clearly acted in ways which hurt other people. Whether it was my privileged position and perspective that caused me to be perceived as insensitive or inappropriate at times or whether it was just my immaturity and me just being unnecessarily difficult, I apologize for my behavior and for any pain which I have caused.
One of the most important lessons of the last few weeks is that we need to take the time to listen and learn about other people’s perspectives and any role we have played or anything we can do to help address the injustices that they face. When I tweeted the other day, it was meant to be a show of support for our friends and neighbors and communities of color during this really difficult time, but the responses I received to what I posted have made me also focus specifically on how my own behavior towards fellow cast members was perceived by them.

Whether it was my privileged position and perspective that caused me to be perceived as insensitive or inappropriate at times or whether it was just my immaturity and me just being unnecessarily difficult, I apologize for my behavior and for any pain which I have caused. We all can grow and change and I have definitely used these past several months to reflect my own shortcomings.
I am a couple of months from becoming a mother and I know I need to keep working to better myself and take responsibility for my actions, so that I can be a real role model for my child and so I can pass along my lessons and mistakes, so that they can learn from me. I listened to these criticisms and I am learning and while I am very sorry, I will be better in the future from this experience.”
It all began when Michele expressed support for the Black Lives Matter movement on Twitter. Ware responded back writing: “LMAO REMEMBER WHEN YOU MADE MY FIRST TELEVISON GIG A LIVING HELL?!?! CAUSE ILL NEVER FORGET. I BELIEVE YOU TOLD EVERYONE THAT IF YOU HAD THE OPPORTUNITY YOU WOULD “SHIT IN MY WIG!” AMONGST OTHER TRAUMATIC MICROAGRESSIONS THAT MADE ME QUESTION A CAREER IN HOLLYWOOD…”

Many of Michele’s co-stars seemingly supported Ware’s allegations as Alex Newell shared a RuPaul’s “very interested” gif and Amber Riley shared a “sipping the tea” gif.

It wasn’t just Glee co-stars as Michele’s former co-star on Mayor, Yvette Nicole Brown, also responded to Ware writing, “I felt every one of those capital letters.”
Netflix Renews Spanish Drama ‘Elite’ for Fifth Season Ahead of Season 4 Premiere, Adds News Cast Members
We’ve got some elite news!
Spanish drama Elite has been renewed for a fifth season at Netflix!
The news isn’t all that shocking considering the drama, set in the ritzy private school of Las Encinas in Spain, is one of the streamer’s best performing Spanish originals.
Not only is the cast incredible, the first few seasons were hinged around an intoxicating murder mystery and plenty of steamy love scenes.
The renewal comes ahead of the fourth season, which currently doesn’t have a premiere date. In 2020, filming was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic and an outbreak on set.
It’s possible the series will return in the spring/summer of 2021.
The upcoming season will see a handful of familiar faces including Samu (Itzan Escamilla), Guzman (Miguel Bernardeau), Omar (Omar Ayuso), Rebeca (Claudia Salas), and Ander (Aron Piper) as they were held back due to their shenanigans. The drama will also welcome new students Manu Ríos , Carla Díaz , Martina Cariddi and Pol Granch to shake things up.
Deadline also reports that the fifth season has added Argentinan actress Valentina Zenere (Soy Luna) and Brazilan actor André Lamoglia (Juacas) to its cast.
WATCH: ‘The Handmaids Tale’ Reveals Season 4 Trailer and Premiere Date
“We don’t hide. We fight,” Elizabeth Moss’ June states in the new teaser trailer for the upcoming fourth season of The Handmaids Tale.
Her statement sets the tone for the new season of the dystopian series.
In the first scene, we see June walking an empty street in normal clothing, a fear departure from the handmaid’s red dress and white bonnet uniform.
Flashbacks reveal she escaped Gilead with members of the resistance as a war is brewing.
Hulu’s recently-released trailer also reveals a premiere date, so mark April 28 in your calendars.
Much like previous seasons, the season will return will drop three peisodes at once followed by a weekly rollout.
Check out the trailer below and get ready:
‘Younger’ Moving to Paramount+ for Seventh and Final Season – Watch the Emotional Sneak Peek
Younger has a new home.
After six seasons at TV Land, the hit TV show about Liza Miller, a middle-aged, divorced mom who lies about being twenty-something to restart her career in publishing, is moving to Paramount+.
ViacomCBS made the announcement during the streaming presentation on Wednesday.
Paramount+ is a new streaming service that will replace CBS All Access. on March 4.
The base tier will cost $5 and include ads. For ad-free streaming, the monthly price will set you back $10.
Now, that doesn’t seem like a lot, but if you’re an avid TV watcher, adding yet another streaming service to your monthly bundle might not be totally feasible.
The good news is that the 12-episode final season will also air on TV Land. The catch? It will run delayed likely after the series wraps, which means you might not avoid spoilers.
Pick your battles, I guess.
The move, while annoying for some, isn’t completely out of the blue. The series was supposed to the Paramount Network for its sixth season but ultimately stayed at TV Land.
With such a dedicated fan-base and so much potential, it doesn’t seem like 12 20-minute episodes are going to provide a satisfactory conclusion. And I don’t think I’m ready for Liza to finally choose between #TeamJosh and #TeamCharles permanently.
The seventh season was initially delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the cast has been busy filming in New York as of late.
And that’s why fans were able to get a sneak peek at the upcoming season:
As Liza says, “embrace the past, accept the present, and keep moving forward.”
While it sure does seem like Liza picks Charles in the end, Sutton Foster promises that the final season will bring “all the emotional, all the laughs, and all the drama defined Younger and have made it the success it is.”
The series stars Foster, Hilary Duff, Nico Tortorella, Debi Mazar, Miriam Shor, Molly Bernard, Charles Michael Davis and Peter Hermann.
Back in March, it was announced that Duff would be getting a spinoff based on her character Kelsey Peters.
