Hollywood Roundup: Glee Actors Victims of Twitter Hacks; Joan Rivers Storms Off CNN Set

 by Calmin Valentino

 Glee actors fall victim to twitter hackers with alarming tweets, rattling Tinseltown.

As the rest of America was celebrating the 4th on July holiday, it appeared that Glee star Lea Michele had a celebration of her own underway, as her official twitter handle @msleamichele tweeted; "Before this gets out in the media, I would like to announce to my fans that I am pregnant #BabyBoy," on Friday morning.

Lea has a massive online following of over 4 million people, and the tweet was retweeted more than 4,000 times within 15 minutes.  Fans had a social media frenzy until a rep cleared up the confusion in a statement explaining that the 27-year-old's twitter account was hacked and that the tweet was false.

Co-star Chris Colfer, who plays Kurt Hummel on the show, also shared the same fate as his twitter account announced him leaving Glee for good, a tweet which was again revealed to be sent by a hacker.


Joan Rivers cuts CNN interview short and storms off the set.

Fashion Police star Joan Rivers recently walked out in the middle of a CNN interview, giving journalist Fredricka Whitfield a piece of her mind, and this stunt was not played for laughs.

The journalist criticised Joan's "unsettling humor" describing it as mean and insulting. Joan retorted: "It's not mean. I tell the truth". The journalist continued to probe the comedienne on her choice of humor and the exchange boiled over to the point where Rivers had enough and stated that the interview had turned into one where she needed to constantly defend herself.

The fashion critic then got up and said, "I've made people laugh for 50 years. I am put on the earth to make people laugh… you are not the person to interview someone that does humor. Sorry." After these angry words Rivers got up and left the journalist in shock on live television. See the interview below, and let us know in the comments if you think that Rivers was overreacting.
