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."

** UPDATE: Charice has shot down this rumor on Twitter:

“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”

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.

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'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

You know, a great big fat person once stood on this stage and told a group of a dozen or so nerds in hideous disco outfits that glee, by its very definition, is about opening yourself up to joy. Now it's no secret that for a long time I thought that was a load of hooey. As far as I could see the glee club was nothing but a place where a bunch of cowardly losers go to sing their troubles away and delude themselves into thinking that they live in a world that cares one iota about their hopes and dreams, totally divorced from the harsh reality that in the real world there's not much more to hope for than disappointment, heartbreak, and failure. And you know what. I was exactly right. Thats exactly what glee club is. But I was wrong about the cowardly part. What I finally realized, now that I'm well into my late thirties, it takes a lot of bravery to look around you and see the world not as it is but as it should be. A world where the quarterback becomes best friends with the gay kid, and the girl with the big nose ends up on Broadway. Finding the courage to open up your heart and sing about it. That's what glee club is. And for the longest time I thought that was silly, and now I think it's just about the bravest thing that anyone could do.
