Dunzo! Curtain Closes on Lea Michele and Her Broadway Beau
On the eve of the Glee Season 3 premiere, with all the excitement and joy that implies, we hear that star Lea Michele has parted ways from her boyfriend, Theo Stockman.
E! Onlinereports the sad news, which has been confirmed by Lea's spokesmaid. "..the relationship just ran its course," quoth the rep, but they "will always be friends."
They kept their passion mostly hidden from the public, no high-profile sightings in Venice, no twitter-pics freezing them wild-haired in a red convertible. No green bottles raised through sun-roofs. It seemed simple, and it seemed real, and now it seems over.
One can only speculate the grueling schedule demands of Glee (Lea) and the unyielding pressures of Broadway (Theo) conspired to separate them. Not even a Hawaii vacation, their last known sighting as a couple, could save it. The magic of the midnight luau, the soft, teasing island breezes, the haunting strains of a distant ukulele must all fade come the dawn.
Alas for what was. Tomorrow we'll see Lea singing on our screens, and we'll look for traces of sorrow behind her eyes, but we won't see it. A professional never shows it. A professional keeps it all in. But we know. We know.
