Who stole the show from comedian Conan O’Brien at the White House Correspondents Dinner? Which big screen superhero wants to own a unicorn in real life? And will Pain & Gain beat Oblivion at the box office this weekend?
This week Glee star Cory Monteith announced that he was entering rehab for substance abuse problems and reports emerged that Lindsay Lohan would also enter rehab–provided they didn’t take away her Adderall.
Both Monteith and Lohan have been in rehab in the past (Monteith in his teens and Lohan numerous times in the last few years), which begs the question: does rehab even work for celebrities?
What did a photographer say to Eva Mendes that set Ryan Gosling off? What does Lindsay Lohan want in exchange for going to rehab? The answers to these questions and more in today’s First Dibs.
Lea Michele went on a filming marathon this weekend as she and some of her fellow Glee costars filmed on location all around New York City. And we mean all around. It seemed exhausting, but on the upside it gave her a chance to bust out some seriously killer skirts! The starlet traveled up and down Manhattan showing off some dance moves and flaunting her fab legs.Just looking at all the wardrobe changes kind of wears us out! She was filmed in Battery Pack mouthing No Doubt’s “Don’t Speak” to boyfriend Corey Monteith, strolling 14th Street with Chris Colfer and hanging out with Dean Geyer around Washington Square Park.
Lea stuck to loose sundresses for her personal attire over the weekend, but the preppy fall couture she was forced to don as Rachel Berry have been pretty rough considering the summer heat! The shoot had more costume changes than a Lady Gaga concert, so we collected her 10 leggiest looks from just this weekend alone! OK, so we snuck in one that wasn’t from the shoot, but a pic she tweeted from her new Candies ad campaign. But we bet you’ll get over it. Enjoy the hot legs, cool clothes, and sneak peek from the upcoming 4th season of the hit series!

Some of us Glee fans are still in denial about the bomb Finn dropped at the end of the season finale: As he sent Rachel off to New York on her own, he revealed that he’d enlisted in the army. It seems like a well-meaning attempt to fix the memory of his father, whose drug addiction (likely due to PTSD) led to a dishonorable discharge and his untimely death. But we’re all left wondering: Can a softhearted glee club alum like Finn survive boot camp, let alone going into battle? At San Diego Comic-Con last weekend, our own Kate Spencer asked Cory Monteith how he thinks his character will make it.
“He’s really going to have to learn some discipline and learn how to suck it up and not be a high-schooler about things,” Monteith told VH1. “He’s gonna have to learn how to be a man pretty quickly. That’s what I think. He’s going to have to toughen up pretty quickly.”
This sounds like no fun at all. Go back in time and join Rachel in New York, Finn! There are lots of schools in the city that would love to have you! Why don’t you ever listen to us when we yell at you from our living rooms?

When Finn put Rachel on the train to New York at the end of last season of Glee, we were both thrilled that she was going to live her dream and sad that it had to be at the cost of her relationship. For us at home, the New York move means Glee will be a whole new show in season four, but we wondered if this will feel like deja vu for actress Lea Michele, a New York native and Broadway star before she made the switch to TV.
“Rachel’s only been to New York once prior to being put on the train,” Michele told VH1 when we caught up with her at San Diego Comic-Con. “So I think I have to let go of everything I know about New York and try to see it through new eyes.”
The second we saw Mark Salling and Cory Monteith dressed as Blaine and Kurt on last night’s Glee, some of us crossed our fingers that the whole two (!) hours would feature this silly stunt.
“It would have been a little bit of overkill [to swap characters for the whole episode],” Jenna Ushkowitz, whose character Tina set off the whole “Freaky Friday” sequence, told VH1 Celebrity this morning, when she stopped by for Big Morning Buzz Live. We were thrilled to see Tina get to show off her chops in full Rachel diva-mode, even if it was all just a dream, and hope that the actress gets more to do as a senior at McKinley next season.
Around the same time that the NBC stars were celebrating their new fall lineup, Fox’s Upfront presentation for advertisers was also happening in NYC. Both channels brought in their bigtime stars, but we feel Fox may just have inched ahead. This was also, in part, because of the news we published yesterday that Britney Spears and Demi Lovato were officially named as the newest judges on The X Factor.
But they were, by no means, not the only stars who came to the presentation. Fellow The X Factor judges Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid were also there. A ton of the Glee cast showed up as well. Lea Michele led the way in a lovely, delicate Pucci dress with Casadei shoes and Lorraine Schwartz jewels. Naya Rivera wore the one mullet dress we’ve ever liked, a Lublu number that she paired with Giuseppe Zanotti shoes. Jenna Ushkowitz wore a summery Rebecca Minkoff design, completing the trio of ladies from the show. Cory Monteith, Chris Colfer and Darren Criss represented the show’s dudes. New Girl star Zooey Deschanel was also there in a Carven dress and Miu Miu heels, as was her co-star Hannah Simone. And surprise surprise, a casually dressed Mila Kunis came for the event as well. Take a look at all of them, in the gallery below.

Cory Monteith is a really hot 6-foot-3 Canadian with a tribal arm band, or at least that’s how girlfriend and co-star Lea Michele likes to refer to him. And we can’t help but agree. The actor and musician has blessed our TV screens and musical hearts as Finn Hudson for three seasons on Glee. Who doesn’t love an underachieving quarterback who sings and prays to a grilled cheese sandwich? That’s why there was a sigh was heard around the world when we learned that Ryan Murphy had found a way to keep Finchel around for next season, even though they’re graduating from McKinley next week.
In real life, when Cory’s not singing and “dancing” on the Glee set, he’s drumming it up with his band Bonnie Dune and now popping up everywhere at Lea’s side — it looks like Rachel and Finn’s romance has become a reality. Whether Cory’s taken or not, we’re still going to wish him a huge happy birthday today. We know it’s hard to believe, since he’s so convincing as a high schooler, but Cory’s turning 30! Here are his 30 hottest looks to celebrate the big day.

Reverent footballer Tim Tebow is rumored to be dating most of Hollywood, and so is Taylor Swift. So it seemed like only a matter of time before the two would be somehow linked in a match made in slow-news-day hell. The two were first spotted together at a pre-Oscar party last weekend. “They were together for almost an hour,” a witness told Celebuzz. “She approached Tim and he looked more than happy to be talking with her.” And any elementary schooler knows that when a boy and a girl talk, it’s because they like each other.
But maybe there is something to the rumors after all. Apparently the two shared a meal an Italian restaurant on Monday. Maybe it’s love … or maybe it’s just love of spaghetti arrabiata. Who knows? It would definitely make sense that the two squeaky clean celebs could find some common ground.
But then again, Taylor does tend to have quite the active dating life. Wasn’t she supposed to be with Zac Efron, like, last week? She’s been linked to so many people that it’s hard to keep track! So as a public service, we’ve compiled a comprehensive history of Taylor Swift’s boyfriends, real and imagined. No need to thank us. Head on down to the gallery below to see the men behind all those breakup songs!
