According to People, Cory Monteith has checked into rehab for substance addiction. The Glee star's rep shared that Cory "graciously asks for your respect and privacy as he takes the necessary steps towards recovery." He has the support of girlfriend Lea Michele, who released a statement to People explaining that she "will stand by him through this."
Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, and Jane Lynch were joined by their Glee cast members to honor Ryan Murphy as he received the PaleyFest Icon Award in LA last night. Lea wore a sheer black Vivienne Tam dress while her boyfriend, Cory, went for a simple suit at the event. The Glee cast weren't the only stars from Ryan's shows to attend the shindig — Leslie Bibb, Carly Pope, and Leslie Grossman from Ryan's first show, Popular, walked the red carpet along with Andrew Rannells and Justin Bartha from The New Normal. Many of the stars of Ryan's shows have grown close with the prolific TV creator, and Andrew, Naya Rivera, and Darren Criss even did some impressions of Ryan Murphy on the red carpet for the Associated Press. After the award ceremony, Lea tweeted, "A beautiful night honoring the amazing Ryan Murphy. So happy for him. What a joy to be in such an amazing room with such incredible people."
Paris Fashion Week kicked off yesterday with the glamorous Versace show at the Ritz Hotel. Jessica Alba, Elizabeth Banks, Milla Jovovich and Mad Men's Christina Hendricks were on hand for the affair and all sat together in the front row before meeting up again to attend a special dinner with Donatella Versace. Lea Michele also made an appearance with her boyfriend, Cory Monteith. The Glee costars are enjoying their Summer break from filming, though they'll return to shooting their small-screen hit later this month. Lea's been taking advantage of her downtime with fun travels including a recent trip to Las Vegas and stops in Amsterdam and London, where she met up with pals Darren Criss and Matthew Morrison. Milla had her own celebrity run-in during her flight to France and tweeted, "Had the pleasure of sitting next to Jennifer Lawrence on the plane and chatting. She's so sweet and gorgeous!"
Michelle Williams clutched her best actress in a comedy or musical Golden Globe for My Week With Marilyn en route to the Weinstein Company's afterparty last night. She posed on the carpet withouth her best friend and date, Busy Philipps. The girls met up inside, though, and Busy later tweeted her happiness for Michelle. Busy wrote, "That was genuinely one of the most fun nights ever. So incredibly proud of my best friend!" Harvey Weinstein got shout-outs in mutiple acceptance speeches last night, being alternatively referred to as "the punisher," or in a memorable quip from Meryl Streep, as "God." Meryl was another winner who turned out for the company's event. She took home the best actress in a drama honor for The Iron Lady.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who's a close friend of Harvey's, caught up with his wife, Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman. Jason Statham, Rosie's boyfriend, was also there to share champagne with guys like Rob Lowe, Alexander Skarsgard, and Gerard Butler. Lots of stars and friends-of-the-famous rolled through the bash, including Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, and a Beverly Hills housewife.

Colin Firth was a busy man yesterday, attending the Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon and AARP Magazine's Movies For Grownups Awards Gala, and then celebrating The King's Speech at an awards season party held at Chateau Marmont in LA! He was joined by other British including Minnie Driver, rocker Mick Jagger, new dad Orlando Bloom, Dominic Monaghan, and Gerard Butler. Renee Zellweger and Colin looked happy to have a Bridget Jones reunion. Colin's current costars Geoffrey Rush, Anthony Andrews, and Timothy Spall also joined the festivities, as did Amanda Seyfried, Michelle Williams, and Busy Philipps.

The Winter TCA is underway outside LA, and Tuesday night was Fox's turn to show off their talent and upcoming shows. The Golden Globe nominated cast of Glee attended the party, and Cory Monteith took a moment to chat with Buzz about his new Funny or Die video and working with Gwyneth Paltrow. Bones duo Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz dropped in on the party, as did Hugh Laurie and Lisa Edelstein from the medical drama House. Cory's costars Chris Colfer and Matthew Morrison were back together yesterday morning to join Conan O'Brien and How I Met Your Mother's Jason Segel and Neil Patrick Harris for the Funny Men in TV panel. When asked about Glee airing right after this year's Super Bowl, Chris jokingly replied, "What's the Super Bowl?" For more details from the conference, make sure to stay tuned to Buzz!
If you can't wait until Glee's return, you can still watch Heather Morris, Cory Monteith, Matthew Morrison, Naya Rivera, and Harry Shum Jr. get down in this latest video from Funny or Die. Set to the tune of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg's "Nuthin' but a 'G' Thang," Morris spits lyrics alongside her fellow cast members. As an added bonus, Modern Family's Sofia Vergara appears wearing a Sue Sylvester tracksuit and sharing her love for Jane Lynch (hmm, a reference perhaps to costar Ed O'Neill's Emmy comments?). My verdict: any video that features Monteith trying to do the robot is well worth watching. Watch, and listen for the many references to Morrison's abs. You know they had to.
