Five new episodes of Glee with…Katie Holmes? And not our Pre-Cruise, sweet Joey Potter Holmes. Oh, no. But that doesn’t matter. Because no matter when you look at Katie Holmes – there’s one fact that remains the same: her voice is so bad it wouldn’t get her to the initial Hollywood phase on American Idol.

Back in the late 90’s we (read: my awesome TV friends on fanforum or somewhere) all used to joke that Joey Potter (Dawson’s Creek) sounded like a chipmunk when she sang a Les Miserables song for a talent show. (Why didn’t Holmes score a part in those Alvin movie remakes?)

Luckily, this gossip is from a source we wouldn’t consider highly reputable.

The National Enquirer claims:
“Katie is finalizing a deal to join the cast for a limited story line next season. Katie’s film career has stalled, and she’s desperately needs a career boost. She’s hoping a stint on Glee will jumpstart her standing in Hollywood.”

Click after the jump to see whether there is truth to this TV gossip.

Why it could be true: Holmes allegedly is friends with both Dianna Agron (her costar for the movie The Romantics) and Ryan Murphy

Why it’s not true: It’s just not! Gossip Cop has confirmed the rumor is false.
