'AHS' returns to FX on Wednesday night (Sep 14th) - and its subject is a closely guarded secret.

The trailer suggests Monteith's character is likely innocent of the suspected crime. One character warns the irritable McCanick "he's done bad things but he is not a killer", whilst the detective retorts "you don't know him as well as you think."

'Glee' star Lea Michele has taken to Twitter for the first time since the death of her boyfriend and co-star Cory Monteith.
If fans and co-stars were devastated by the news of the death of Glee actor Cory Monteith, AKA Finn Hudson, after a confirmed drugs overdose, it's hard to imagine how his girlfriend and long-term friend Lea Michele could be feeling. Monteith was found dead on 13th July after he failed to check out of a Vancouver hotel room after a night out with friends. Although an initial autopsy doubted substance abuse, a following toxicology report confirmed his death was a result of a deadly cocktail of heroin and alcohol.

Monteith's death came out of the blue and, despite entering and leaving rehab to get clean earlier this year, it seems drugs got the better of the talented actor and singer. He and Michele had been dating for a year in a romance that mirrored the on-screen love of their characters.

Cory Monteith, the Canadian actor best known for playing Finn Hudson on Fox's hit television show Glee, died from a heroin and alcohol overdose, according to a coroner's report. Initially, police in Vancouver said it was unlikely that the tragic death was the result of substance abuse, though the evidence suggests otherwise.
The British Columbia Coroner's Service confirmed the actor's cause of death late on Tuesday (July 16, 2013) after conducting an autopsy and toxicology test. A statement said: "There is no evidence at this time to suggest Monteith's death was anything other than a most tragic accident."
An article by entertainment gossip site TMZ.com this week suggested Monteith - who dated Glee co-star Lea Michele - lived a 'double life' between Los Angeles and Vancouver. Sources tell the site that Cory "became a drug addict with a serious drinking problem" when he returned to his native Canada, hanging "out with many of the friends who helped fuel his addiction."

Singer and actress Charice Pempengco, who plays Sunshine Corazon on Glee, has come out as gay during an interview on a Philippines talk show. Pempengco broke the news in the interview this weekend, with the world's press gradually picking up her announcement made in the Asian nation.
The native Filipino admitted that she is a lesbian during a discussion on the Asian nation's popular ABS CBN celebrity-based show The Buzz, a bold move to make in a predominantly Catholic country, even for one of it's biggest stars. However rather than face a backlash Pempengco has instead been supported by many Catholic institutes across the country, with high-ranking church and government official Father Melvin Castro jumping to her defence.
“In this time of her life that she is experiencing an identity crisis regarding her sexual orientation, we would rather not pre-judge her,” he said in a recent interview in the Philippines press, adding, “Let’s hope that there will be people out there that will help guide her with her sexual orientation called same sex attraction.”

He’s been known to have suffered from issues relating to addiction in the past and his rep told People that he has “voluntarily admitted himself to a treatment facility for substance addiction.”

Prime Glee hunk Mark Salling who played Noah 'Puck' Puckerman in the hit show about school kids singing has been accused by an alleged ex-girlfriend of forcing her to have sex with him without using a condom, TMZ reported. His publicist has since denied the allegations on his behalf.
The story goes that Roxanne Gorzela began dating Salling in September 2010. They had sex but only with a condom, at her insistence. Several months later, just before she was heading to Canada for a trip, "things got hot and heavy" but when she told him 'no' because they didn't have a condom, he continued anyway.
Once she got back from the trip she was suffering with emotional unrest about the incident and was fearing for her health. She went over to speak to him about it, but found him in bed with another girl. When she questioned him about whether or not he was 'clean', he pushed her to the ground. She filed a police report the same day.
Katy Perry performed at the Kids Inaugural Concert, hosted by Michelle Obama in Washington D.C. this week, MTV News reports.
During the performance, the singer showed off her patriotism (and her figure) in a tight fitting, red, white and blue bodice and shorts – of course, what else would Katy Perry be dressed in. The outfit had very obvious pin up girl influences, but for once, her wardrobe didn’t get the singer in trouble with concerned parents – unlike her appearance on Sesame Street, when her cleavage earned Perry a slap on the wrist from the groups of parents.
Whether or not Katy did a good job with the songs, which is arguable at best, the show was worth a watch for the performance at least. The set, albeit not too thematic, featured some of the pop star’s biggest hits, including Teenage Dream, Part of Me, Wide Awake and Firework, which she dedicated to children with parents in the military – always a sure way to get an ovation at the end. In fact, the entire concert had military families and mind and each act took time out of their set to express their support and admiration for the troops and their loved ones. The concert celebrated Barack Obama’s second term in office and it also featured stars like Usher and the Glee cast – a complete teenage dream, one might say. Watch Katy Perry's Performance of Teenage Dream below.
Rachel and Finn have had a very tumultuous relationship in Glee, to say the least. But in real life the actors who play both those characters have a dream-like relationship.
Lea Michele (Rachel) and Cora Monteith (Finn) have been dating for months but they only unveiled the news publicly on Ellen, to its host Ellen Degeneres. Ellen asked him about 'Monchele' and what it means. He replied "Well, of course I know what Monchele is... it's Monteith and Michele... Yeah [we are a couple]." The news of which inspired the audience to scream their approval.
Despite both looking as though they're in high school, like their famous Glee characters, Michele is in fact 26 while Cory is 30, and it's right about time for a grown-up relationship. Michele is gracing the cover of Marie Claire this month in which she has spoken about her relationship with Cory. "I don't even remember a time when he wasn't my boyfriend. No one knows me better than Cory," quotes NY Daily News. "No one knows what it's been like to go through this more than he does. Feeling like you have that net underneath you allows you to jump higher and go farther... He makes me feel like I can do anything. For the first time in my life, I feel really, really settled and happy. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world."
