Glee's real-life couple Lea Michele and Cory Monteith are slowly but surely taking their romance public.
Both were at last night's Chrysalis Butterfly Ball.
While they may have walked the red carpet solo...
Monteith made it clear that they were there very much together.
"It's a bit of a date night, yeah," Monteith, 30, told me exclusively before joining Michele, 25, inside the gala, which took place at an enormous estate in the Brentwood neighborhood of L.A.
Michele, looked amazing in a body-hugging silk Emilio Pucci gown, but played it a bit more coy. When I asked who her date was, she giggled that she was with her girlfriends. But then she added that I'd probably recognize some other people inside.
Once inside, the lovebirds didn't leave each other's sides. They wrapped their arms around each other and stole some kisses.
Michele and Monteith had dinner at a table that also included Jenna Dewan in a chic yellow Valentino gown and Jamie-Lynn Sigler matching the purple theme of the night in fab Nicole Miller.
Monteith had just returned from a vacation. "It was amazing," he said." I drove from here to Vancouver then I went to Tokyo and then I drove back from Vancouver to here."
Michele said she also planned to get away now that Glee is on break.
Will Monteith be with her? As if he wouldn't be.
Also at the Audi-sponsored affair, which benefited Chrysalis' work to help the homeless and low-income individuals find employment, were Ryan Murphy, Ashley Tisdale, Kim Raver, Sarah Drew, Johnny Knoxville, Colin Egglesfield, Soleil Moon Frye, Eric Dane, Rebecca Gayheart and Whitney Cummings, among many others.
