After a Year of Heartbreak, a Glee Girl May’ve Found Love… with a TVD Hottie!
2016 was a rough year for the girls of Glee. Despite Dianna Agron & Becca Tobin‘s respective weddings, there were far more breakups to discuss, including Naya Rivera‘s sudden divorce from husband Ryan Dorsey, Lea Michele‘s two splits (first from Matthew Paetz; second from Robert Buckley), Melissa Benoist‘s separation from husband/former Glee co-star Blake Jenner and Lauren Potter‘s called-off engagement to longtime love Timothy Spear.
But, perhaps, 2017 will be a better year for the ladies of the Fox dramedy. After all, it looks like love might be in the air for one of ’em: Melissa Benoist.
Following the late-December announcement of her divorce from her 24-year-old hubby, the 28-year-old Supergirl actress is reportedly taking things to the next level with one of her co-stars from her CW superhero television series, Chris Wood. You probably remember the 28-year-old hottie as the guy you hate to love and love to hate on The Vampire Diaries, Kai Parker.
The cutie, who was once linked to Nina Dobrev, reportedly broke up with his Containment co-star/longtime girlfriend, Hanna Mangan Lawrence, earlier this year. Since then, he’s been featured opposite Melissa on her TV show — the two even lock lips on occasion on the program. So, when she was recently spotted walking her dog, as well as his dog, Drift, in Vancouver, the new-couple buzz surged.
Though she could have simply been doing a nice thing for a friend, fans are hopeful. And if they are a couple, then this wouldn’t be the first time a Glee girl and a Vampire Diaries guy got together. Remember, back in the day, Jenna Ushkowitz & Michael Trevino had a long-term relationship, before they called it quits in 2014.
The Glee cast is all about spreading the love. Here are eight pairs of Glee co-stars that gave love a try in real life:
Lea Michele & Cory Monteith
The year Glee first aired, Lea began dating Theo Stockman, a star of Broadway's American Idiot, and Cory was still dating model Julie Vardalos. But, after Cory & Julie called it quits in 2010, and Lea & Theo called it quits in 2011, the on-screen love interests gave off-screen romance a try.
The beautiful pair known as Monchele (or Finchel, on the show) stayed together until Cory, unexpectedly, passed away in July 2013.
