Glee creator Ryan Murphy has a lot on his plate right now. Aside from trying to recover Glee’s constant ratings slip, he’s got his new baby, American Horror Story kicking butt and freshly renewed for a second season. So, it may cause Ryan to get a little testy with some of his employees. According to a new story in Us Weekly, Ryan’s has become a little bit of a bully on the Glee set.
Prior to this story, the cast of Glee couldn’t stop gushing about their love for the show’s creator. But now, rumor has it that privately and behind-the-scenes, Ryan’s become a little bit of a menace. “Things are really bad on set. The cast talks about how much they love Ryan, but they have grown to hate him,” a source tells Us. Another adds, “He has bad mood swings and can be really mean.”
It’s not too hard to believe that Ryan has been having some crazy flip-floppy mood swings. He’s been a little hot and cold all season with Glee. First, he told us he’d cool it on the guest stars and tribute episodes. Now, he’s booked three major latin musical guests and is planning a Michael Jackson tribute. However, one story involving Lea Michele is what has everyone talking.
Us also reports that when star Lea Michele initially declined to participate in the show’s 2011 concert tour, for which they had just four short days to rehearse, Murphy responded by threatening to fire one of her friends — likely referring to one of Michele’s besties, Amber RIley. (via Zap2It)
Lea Michele’s rep denied the story claimed by Us Weekly. However, I can’t help but wonder if the rep was just kindly being polite. Do you believe that Ryan is being a terror behind-the-scenes? Sound off.
