Chris Colfer To Penn Glee Episode

After penning Struck by Lightning and a series of children’s books, Chris Colfer is more than ready to write an episode of Glee.

Colfer tells TVLine he’ll be scripting and choosing music for episode 19, which will deal with animals and the elderly. “I promise that it’s better than it sounds,” he jokes. “I kind of have this shot to do a really selfish episode, which if it was for me, I would probably have done a Miley Cyrus tribute episode. But I’m trying to do the best episode that I can, rather than do something selfish.”

We kind of think a Miley episode would be epic. Any thoughts?


Blaine-Brittany-Sam-Mercedes-Puck-and-Mike-at-the-Spotlight-gleeGleeks Take Manhattan

After months of faking the Big Apple on the West Coast, the Glee cast finally headed to Manhattan for real to film key outdoor scenes for the next set of episodes. Fans reported seeing Blaine, Sam, Starchild, Artie and Mercedes all appear in upcoming New York scenes, along with Kurt and Rachel.

Blaine and Sam will allegedly sing a duet in Times Square and reunite with the gang in Washington Square Park for a different number. Also, Artie is stymied by New York and dresses like a giant STD (why, we couldn’t say), and Mercedes and Sam walk-and-talk about their relationship.

Oh, and there’s a group outing to iconic New York eatery Serendipity 3. Get the frozen hot chocolate, guys—it’s insanely good.

The latest Glee rumor is that Naya Rivera is leaving the show at the end of Season 5: A tweet Rivera posted when filming with Heather Morris read “On set with Glee shooting a very sweet Brit/Santana scene! #starttogetherendtogether.”

The tweet’s since been deleted, but we’re on the fence with this one: Rivera seems a key part of the New York storyline, so it’d be hard to imagine it continuing without her. On the other hand, she wasn’t spotted when Glee filmed exteriors in New York City last week. Curiouser and curiouser.


Did Naya Rivera Get A Boob Job?

We’re not judging, just curious: Rivera definitely looked more busty at Glee’s 100th episode celebration at Chateau Marmont, and the Instagram pic Naya tweeted this week displays more cleavage than we remember seeing on Santana.

In any case, Big Sean is clearly a breast man.

Jane Lynch Back On Stage

After he Broadway debut in Annie last year, Jane Lynch is returning to the stage with a cabaret act at New York’s 54 Below from June 18 through 21.

There’s no word yet on what the Emmy winner will be singing in her solo concert debut, but our vote goes for her cover of “Vogue.”
