Former Glee extra Nicole Crowther talked to E!‘s Watch With Kristin about giving away some crucial plotlines about the prom episode, prompting a sh*t storm full of hate and spite. The show’s executive producer, Brad Falchuk tweeted to Crowther, “Hope you’re qualified to do something besides work in entertainment.”
The thing is, explained Crowther, she wasn’t an extra on the prom episode. Crowther hasn’t worked on the Fox series since October 2010, but attended a dinner party a few weeks ago where a few other extras who had worked on that episode divulged some secrets. She told E!, “I have not worked on the show Glee since October 2010. [The extra] came to us and was talking to us about it. I met her a couple times [before] and she just divulged the information. The spoiler that she told me was sort of unbelievable. I didn’t know if it was the truth.”

Once she heard about the spoiler, Crowther took to Twitter and ended up making a big mistake:
“Honestly, somebody did ask, and I was reporting as a gossip columnist almost. I knew I wouldn’t get in trouble since I wasn’t actually on the set, but that wasn’t part of it. I was just enjoying talking with others about it. Speculating and hearing their ideas on it. I didn’t know if it was real, and I was answering people’s questions from what I had heard. Of course, I had no intention for any of this to happen, it just blew up.”
Since then she’s been black-balled by every agency in Hollywood and regrets ever saying anything about the show. Crowther had no idea it would turn into this huge ordeal where she’d get bullied on a daily basis: “I had no idea it would even come close to anything it’s been. I regret it and I can totally understand, not only where the fans are coming from, but why Brad and other people from Fox are furious with me. I can understand their point of view.”
On a much lighter note, the gang from Glee including executive producer Dante Di Loreto, Kevin McHale, Harry Shum Jr., Darren Criss, Ryan Murphy, Heather Morris, Ian Brennan, Brad Falchuk, Chord Overstreet, Mark Salling and Cory Monteith met with New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg at the Gershwin Theater yesterday, according to the Wall Street Journal. Bloomberg was elated to welcome the cast to NYC, even taking a few jabs at Los Angeles mayor Anthony Villaraigosa. After Di Loreto remarked that they’ve never once met Villaraigosa despite filming in L.A, Bloomberg took this as his cue. According to the WSJ, he told the cast, “”Just in case you want to move everything to New York, we’d love to have you. Sorry about the mayor of L.A.” Oh, you joker!
