The Glee darling was noticeably absent from the Fox/TCA All-Star party last night at Villa Sorriso in Pasadena, where all her costars—Jane Lynch, Chris Colfer, Mark Salling, Matthew Morrison, Dianna Agron, Cory Monteith, Jayma Mays, Jenna Ushkowitz, Jessalyn Gilsig, and Kevin McHale—were all glowing in attendance.
So what gives?
"She wasn't there as she was working," a rep for Ms. Michele tells us.
And while we're on the subject, we're assured that L.M also didn't use her reported divatude to diss True Grit star (soon to be mega star) Hailee Steinfeld.
Apparently, it was the production assistant who yanked Lea away from Hailee who was asking for L.M.'s autograph while auditioning for True Grit on the Paramount lot, where Glee also films. That's what we're assured.
But back to last night.
Glee filming most definitely was under way yesterday, so despite Fox's best efforts to have everyone wrap early so they could attend the party, guess it didn't happen.
Does that ease you tweet-hearts who were very upset you didn't get to see a glam Lea hit the carpet?
We're sure she'll be looking as fierce this Sunday at the Golden Globes as she was at Emmys.
Let's just hope she's more social at the afterparties!
