Has Glee found its next series regular?

According to the rep for Charice Pempengco, that Filipina pop star has landed a role on everyone's favorite musical comedy.

"It's true, Charice will soon join Glee," her manager, Grace Mendoza, told The Philippines Inquirer. "And not just as a guest, but as part of the cast in a new season."

“I just want to let you all know, that it’s not true that I’m going to be on Glee… How i wish! haha”

@ very racist and an ignorant thing to say...why don't you just keep your comments to yourself.


NO WAY. i mean, yeah, TALENTED but LOOK AT HER! she looks like a pile of stupid filipino shit! the philippines famous people are just SHIT


Charisse Pempengco is the new 'IT' girl. She's painting the town RED. Everyone around me is talking about her powerful singing voice and amazing presence on stage. She touches your soul and captures your heart. I LOVE HER.


this news is not true. Charice confirmed that she will not become part of glee. Find out the truth on her twitter @officialcharice


Mga pinoy tlaga. nakakita lang ng pinoy na sikat sasbin " im filipino.. im filpina etc " ay letse kayo. Para kayong mga probinsyanong nakakita ng artista n proud n proud. Nakakahiya kayo sa ibang lahi na nakakabasa. Ang yayabang kasi ng ibang pinoy dito. Nakita lang si charisse ssabhin n i'm pinoy wahhh letse kayo! Anong kinalaman ng pagsikat ni charisse at sa pagiging pinoy nyo?


Why does everyone say that they're filipino/filipina when a filipino becomes famous? It's not the race we are admiring so who cares?


i love glee and i kind of like charice coz i'm filipina :P... but charice as cast of glee? that's out of the question. guest yes, but regular cast no way!!!


I'm also a Filipina and I agree that Charice has amazing talent. But I have to say, this girl is famous enough that she doesn't need to enter a show with rising talents. Also, Glee has enough characters to keep the plot interesting and entertaining, there's no need to add one more. The lines aren't equally distributed enough as it is. I've do not doubt her talent, but she doesn't belong in this show.


Im actually kind of glad she's not going to be on glee. I've heard her sing and she is EXTREMELY talented, but i almost feel like she's too well known for the show. Granted, she's not a household name, (yet) but I like that Glee is doing the open casting calls and I want some unknown talent to get the parts.


Why add more cast? Use the fantastic cast they have instead. What's up with not giving Matt and Mike lines?!

Glee Quotes

[to Finn] You know, I don't really know what's going to happen between us, but I know that you used to be the guy that would make me feel like the most special girl in the whole world, and it doesn't feel that way anymore. Now it just feels sad and confusing. And the worst part is that it doesn't even feel that bad anymore.


I'm engorged with venom, and triumph.
