Murphy and two of his show’s stars – Glee’s Chris Colfer and The New Normal’s Bebe Wood — toured the showhouse together, along with Fong, who designed a long, dark, winding passage in the showhouse.
Colfer, who plays Kurt Hummel on the hit Fox musical comedy, told THR that he was a fan of comfort when it came to design.
“Whenever there’s comforting colors or light colors, I’m a little more relaxed,” he said.
However, he admitted that his own home isn’t filled with the luxurious designs of the showhouse.
“Most of my furniture – it’s so embarrassing – has been furniture that I’ve had my entire life,” he told THR. “Just hand-me-downs that I painted and made work from my parents.”
But he was eying an item in Fong’s hallway that he wouldn’t mind adding to his own place.
“I saw this cockroach, this huge wooden cockroach, that I love,” he said. “Because I think it’d be cool just to have a roach, just to own it, and say, ‘I got roaches.’”
“I can’t do this anymore; at least not now. We’re done.”
It’s been two weeks since Lea Michele’s Rachel said the unthinkable to Finn (Cory Monteith) during Glee’s emotional “Break-Up” episode, sending the fan-favorite couple on their separate paths.
“I laid in bed and just cried like a baby,” Michele recalls of watching the episode alone after having received a rare advance DVD of the episode from Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy. “Cory was like, ‘Please wait, don’t watch it so I can watch it with you.’ There was one night I was sitting by myself and I just had to watch. It was amazing and by far one of my most favorite episodes ever.”It’s been two weeks since Lea Michele’s Rachel said the unthinkable to Finn (Cory Monteith) duringGlee’s emotional “Break-Up” episode, sending the fan-favorite couple on their separate paths.
So what’s next for the NYADA freshman? Returning to McKinley High to see the Finn-directed Greas emusical, a Scissor Sisters duet with co-star and Glee roommate Chris Colfer and beginning her own audition process as she looks to take the first steps toward Broadway.
The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Michele to talk about the heart-breaking episode, celebrating four years of Glee and how Rachel and Finn’s split will impact her.
