Heather Morris of 'Glee' naked, via phone pictures? Join the club

Heather Morris' naked cellphone pictures have surfaced

Heather Morris is the latest celeb to have her naked cellphone pictures launched online, with images that hit the Web on Saturday night showing the "Glee" actress in various states of dress and undress.

Among the dressed shots are a backstage photo of Morris in her Britney Spears "I'm a Slave 4 U" costume from the show's "Britney/Brittany" episode as well as shots of her booty-to-die-for packaged nicely in black dance shorts. Of the 26 pics the Ministry saw, only five were naked.

It's not the first time we've seen the naughty side of Heather. In 2010, tasteful black-and-white modeling — we'll call them nudes, instead of nakeds — surfaced, and Morris had no regrets.

"I kind of thought it might happen,” Morris told "Extra" at the time. "I understand completely where it came from. For me, I think they are beautiful. It’s not something I’m ashamed of. Everybody should do tasteful beautiful nudes — so when you get older you're gonna be like, 'Oh that's when my body looked so great!'"

And trust us, it does all look great.

Though some of the new pics do show Heather from the front (or someone who looks just like her, among pictures clearly of her) 100% unclothed and bending over, they're actually marginally less suggestive than a few of the clothed poses Lea Michele and Dianna Agron struck in the November 2010 issue of GQ.

Well, except for the one where "Glee" cheerleader Morris is fully clothed and spread-legged, wearing a miniskirt and puffy pink panties.

Other celebs linked to naked pictures lately include Christina Hendricks and Olivia Munn, following in the footsteps of Scarlett Johansson and others whose stolen photos were at the heart of the "Operation Hackerazzi" investigation.

Mark Salling steams up love scenes, feeds the children

Mark Salling talks love scenes on 'Glee'

Mark Salling has a lot on his plate, including juggling his on-screen "Glee" love interests and helping to feed young Americans.

As this week brings Thanksgiving, the Ministry enjoyed a chat with Salling about his ongoing effort to address hunger -- and perhaps feed our appetite for insider info on the fictional cougar connection with Idina Menzel's character on his Ryan Murphy-run show.

"Idina's amazing," Salling said. "I got to see her at the Greek [Theatre] recently."

And did he perchance run into Menzel's husband, actor Taye Diggs?

"Yeah," he said, "that was awkward." Beat. Smile. "No, he's a really nice guy."

Fine, no significant others beating down his door on behalf of Menzel, nor prior scripted loves Dianna Agron and Lea Michele. But how does Mark, the actor, handle those moments on set?

"I really give myself over to the writers in that situation. I mean, there are kids who are hungry," he said, putting things in perspective. "I just have to do a few fun scenes with some great actors."

Back to those hungry kids. Mark has been promoting a UPC-label drive in conjunction with Feeding America and ConAgra Foods, who are working to generate 5 million meals nationwide for children in grades K through 12 over the next year.

"On 'Glee,' we root for the underdog, and given this age bracket and such a solvable crisis, I'd say this falls in line with that,' Salling said.

Harry Shum Jr.: No longer 'the other Asian' on 'Glee'

Harry Shum Jr ain't nobody's 'other Asian'

It's a great moment for Harry Shum Jr., the impossibly pliable dancer who turned a few high kicks on "Glee" into a breakout role on the musical TV series.

He's also turned it into a fancy fashion editorial spread, it would seem, as we find the easy-on-the-eyes Shum starring in a new guide to winter style — and he chats about his early days hoofing for Beyonce, moonlighting for Steve Jobs and shining for Ryan Murphy.

"I'd rather dance in a corner than dance in a circle," the actor told GQ, though based on the photo that's above on the right, we're not buying into all that shyness.

But Shum does have a natural sweetness, plus killer moves that made him an easy fit for Mrs. Jay-Z (he was a backup dancer for Beyonce) and as one of the the jiving silhouettes from early iPod commercials. 

Then there's the nickname he earned for himself on the set of the movie "Step Up 3D": The man with no bones.

As Mike Chang Jr. on "Glee," Shum has carved a romantic plot with Jenna Ushkowitz, a dramatic arc involving an overbearing parent who doesn't respect his son's right to boogie, and plenty of showy numbers with another resident dancer, Matthew Morrison. A lot has changed since his character's early episodes.

"It's been like a year and a half," Shum said, "since anybody's referred to me as 'the other Asian.' "

Tyler Shields irons out his Heather Morris abuse controversy


Photographer and provocateur Tyler Shields took heat last month for a series of pictures starring perky blond Heather Morris of "Glee," in which she danced about and posed for Shields while sporting a black eye.

Both photog and subject agreed on "busted Barbie" as a shoot concept, but larger fan reaction was definitely not in agreement when it came to artistic value: Shields fielded thousands of electronic and hand-written messages that he categorized as "death threats."

"It was 25,000, maybe more," he told the Ministry, "of the most violent, insane things." 

But Shields wasn't about to be bullied. In support of "Well Hung," his upcoming exhibit with Maximilian Wiedemann at London's Imitate Modern gallery, Shields shared with us an exclusive image from his Morris series, above, in which she gives him some searing-hot abuse right back.

"This wasn't glorifying domestic violence," he said. "I didn't sit down and say, 'It would be awesome to punch the girl from "Glee" in the face.' She's clearly in makeup and doing Barbie gone nuts."

And then there's the issue of the correspondence. Rather than ignore his death threats, Shields took the most upsetting authors to task.

"One e-mail was from a 16-year-old kid that had an opening line so horrible ... it was racist, went after the gays, called me terrible things, so I tracked him down. I got his phone number, somewhere in Maryland, and called him up."

The minor's mother answered the phone, and Shields proceeded to read her the son's note.

"She was screaming, she was so upset," Shields said.

Similarly, the office manager of a California physician's office sent a declaration that he and a gang of females were going to beat Tyler's brains in with baseball bats. Shields called the good doctor to let hm know about his employee.

Do Shields' words iron out any confusion, or do the pics still inspire steam? Tell us in comments.

'Glee 3D' premiere: What the cast did during summer 'vacation'

Naya Rivera at the Glee 3D premiere

Can the world handle "Glee" in 3D? Ready or not, the premiere of "Glee: The 3D Concert Movie" hit Westwood on Saturday. And no matter who'll be graduating this year, there was nearly perfect attendance on the red carpet ahead of the movie's opening Friday.

Turning out with show creator Ryan Murphy on Saturday were, in no particular order, Ashley Fink, Dot Jones, Chord Overstreet, Jenna Ushkowitz, Heather Morris, Harry Shum Jr., Lea Michele, Josh Sussman, Jayma Mays, Heather Morris, Amber Riley, Chris Colfer, Mark Salling, Kevin McHale, Dianna Agron and Darren Criss.

Add to that one Naya Rivera, who was a burst of purple fashion goodness in a Rue du Mail dress and Walter Steiger pumps.

Matthew Morrison, a.k.a. Mr. Shuester, played hooky — but maybe his touring as the opening act for NKOTBSB makes it an excused absence? Also no Gwyneth Paltrow, so forget her.

Also spotted on the red carpet outside the Regency: Alexa Vega of "Spy Kids 4," Kiernan Shipka of "Mad Men," Sarah Drew of "Grey's Anatomy," Loretta Devine of "State of Georgia," Hailee Steinfeld of "True Grit" and Rebecca Black of "Friday" infamy.

The documentary follows the gang on the "Glee Live! In Concert!" tour, which ran from May through mid-June in the U.S., with shows in England and Ireland in late June and early July.

"It's like we went around the world," Shum Jr. told the Hollywood Reporter, saying that returning to the plain-old "Glee" after touring and movie-making would "take a little bit of adjusting, but I think we'll feel like we're at home when we get back on set."

So which songs from the "Glee" cover ouvre does the gang deliver in the flick? Take a deep breath, 'cause there are a lot of them: "Don't Stop Believin'," "Dog Days Are Over," "Sing, "I'm a Slave for You," "Fat Bottomed Girls," "I Want to Hold Your Hand," "Ain't No Way," "P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)," "Born This Way," "Firework," "Teenage Dream," "Silly Love Songs," "Raise Your Glass," "Happy Days Are Here Again/Get Happy," "Lucky," "River Deep, Mountain High," "Forget You," "Don't Rain on My Parade," "Jessie's Girl," "Valerie," "Loser Like Me," "Safety Dance" and "Somebody to Love."

Can't name all the original artists without a cheat sheet? Wow, you're so completely not a Gleek. Hint: The King of Pop, the Queen of Soul and pop princess Britney Spears all made the cut.

Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, Cory Monteith leaving 'Glee'

Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith will be leaving "Glee"

Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith are making a new high school tradition on "Glee": Usually people are bummed when the cool kids are about to graduate.

Lovable uncool kids Rachel, Kurt and Finn will graduate after their upcoming Season 3 senior year and  leave "Glee" and the halls of McKinley High forever.

Colfer, who racked up another Emmy nomination Thursday morning after winning last year for supporting actor in a comedy, said he wasn't expecting the news but agreed with the decision.

"It's definitely not my choice to leave the show, but I understand it’s the right choice," he told Awards Tracker on Thursday. "The show is very real. To have the character grow up and leave and graduate, it’s the right thing to do. I think it's more of a big deal because not too many shows have ever done it before."

Michele tweeted her reaction late Wednesday: "We always knew we'd graduate in real time. It's all part of the plan and it's all good! It's going to make Season 3 amazing!!!"

Silver lining: It would be impossible for the New Directions stars to commute to Broadway from Lima, Ohio, right?

Chord Overstreet is leaving 'Glee' and 'starting fresh'

Chord Overstreet is leaving "Glee"

Chord Overstreet is out of the “Glee” club. The recurring guest star, whose character Sam Evans transferred to William McKinley High School last season, was not asked back as a series regular.

"Well its been a good yr too bad its over," he tweeted on Friday. "Time for summer and starting fresh."

Without giving a reason for the dismissal, a Fox rep confirmed the news to People. However, TV Line reports Overstreet may appear from time to time as a guest star.

Things aren't all bad for Overstreet. He is obviously feeling the love from fans, posting on Twitter, "i have the coolest fans hands down!!!! i love you all!!" and it looks like "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never" director Jon M. Chu is keeping the actor in mind for future projects, writing, "u r a classy dude and talented as heck! Can't wait to work with you one day."

Castmates Darren Criss and Harry Shum Jr., who are in Ireland with Overstreet this week as part of the "Glee" tour, received better news on Friday. Criss' character Blaine and Shum Jr.'s Mike will be back in the fall as series regulars.

In addition to Overstreet’s departure, the entire "Glee" cast (aside from the high school staff) will be getting pink slips at the end of the third season when their characters graduate.

Think of them as diplomas.

Cory Monteith opens up about drug abuse, rehab

Cory Monetih cops to major drug and alcohol abuse as a teenCory Monteith plays All-American jock Finn Hudson on "Glee," but his own teen years were spent far from the right side of the tracks.

"I'm lucky on so many counts –- I'm lucky to be alive," the actor said in a recent interview in which he confessed to binge drinking and drug use as early as age 13.

Seven years old when his parents divorced, Monteith was skipping class in British Columbia to get high -- a habit that escalated and required intervention from his friends and family.

Cory went off to rehab at 19 but it didn't take. The actor continued to drink and abuse drugs.

"I stole a significant amount of money from a family member," he told Parade. "I knew I was going to get caught, but I was so desperate I didn't care."

That family member threatened to press charges if Monteith didn't get his act together. 

"I was done fighting myself. I finally said, 'I'm gonna start looking at my life and figure out why I'm doing this,' " he said.

'Glee' graduation scheduled: Ryan Murphy confirms cast is moving on

The "Glee" kids are graduating High School.

Looks like the singing high schoolers on "Glee," the New Directions, have another big number to prepare: their swan song.

Show creator Ryan Murphy revealed that, after some speculation, he'll be letting show stars such as Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Amber Riley, Chris Colfer, Mark Salling and Dianna Agron follow the natural progression of their characters. Meaning graduation and then, well, bye.

"We didn’t want to have a show where they were in high school for eight years. We really wanted it to be true to that experience. We thought it would be really cool if we were true to the timeline," Murphy said on Ryan Seacrest's radio show.

"I don't think of it in terms of eliminating or replacing," he said for any Rachel Berry fans afraid they're swapping her for new blood, "because I think the thing about this cast is people love them and they are incredibly talented. They’ve left sort of an indelible mark.”

This leaves those crazy kids open for movies, albums, reality projects, making some milkshakes for the paparazzi and then any inevitable comebacks. Murphy confirmed that small-screen teachers Matthew Morrison and Jane Lynch would remain as the "linchpins" of the series.

Gwyneth Paltrow surprises fans with 'Glee Live' appearance [Video]

Gwyneth Paltrow memorably sang Cee Lo's "Forget You" for her first guest appearance on "Glee" -- and on Thursday night decided to remind one New Jersey audience that she can in fact bring it.

Paltrow made a surprise visit to a stop of the "Glee Live! In Concert" arena tour, where she donned her grey mini skirt and belted the track out alongside Lea Michele, Dianna Agron, Cory Monteith and Mark Salling.

East Rutherford went nuts over the Paltrow sighting, which she tweeted about ahead of time, saying, "On my way to Glee live! Rock. On."

Another fascinating Paltrowism? It appears she's had her first run-in with the notorious TSA scanners, and made an observation about the pose most pedestrians assume when passing through.

"Going through the airport, saw a very elderly lady getting scanned by that new xray thing...the TSA has everybody throwing up the ROC, its too good," she wrote. The ROC would be throwing your diamond in the sky in praise of Jay-Z (longtime Paltrow pal) and his empire.

Meanwhile, the "Glee" kids keep rolling across the nation. On Wednesday evening following their New York show they hosted AT&T Samsung's Spring Fling event, greeting fans for prom-style photos. Monteith rolled through the Gansevoort Hotel with Naya Rivera, and surprised costar Kevin McHale with a cake for his birthday.
