Glee: Old Faces and New Relationships!
Treat! With the Glee hiatus finally coming to a close (Damn it’s been a rough five weeks!), rumors are swirling all over the interwebs regarding our favorite New Directioners returning to Lima for the holidays. To help get things straight, I caught up with the beautiful Melissa Benoist, and she was kind enough to dish details about the vibe on set. “It’s been really exciting! There is a new energy around,” she says. “It’s, like, buzzing and the writing has been awesome.” Benoist says that Marley will have the pleasure of interacting with all of the original Glee club members, but there is one actress in particular that was absolutely delightful. The 24-year-old says, “Meeting everyone has been great. I met Dianna Agron for the first time and she’s, like, the loveliest, most beautiful person inside and out.” Agreed. So fans can share in our distain to learn that Quinn will be dating a not-so-nice fells when we finally see her again. In a recent Twitter Q&A,Ryan Murphy revealed that the Yale student will have “[A] new boyfriend. And not a good one. Santana (Naya Rivera) is vey unhappy. #slapheardroundtheworld” Yikes! For me, this is just yet another reason why Quinn should transfer to NYU and be with Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer)! Please excuse me while I say a quick prayer to the TV Gods…
Let’s move on to a happier topic shall we? One word: Jarley. They’re more adorable than a basket full of kittens and now that Jake (Jacob Artist) is back on the market, many fans are dying to see these two newbies make it official. But Benoist warns that it won’t exactly be a smooth transition from friend to girlfriend. She explains, “They definitely have a road ahead of them in terms of their relationship. Maybe a bumpy one, maybe one with some obstacles, but there is no romance if there is no challenge.” Awww. And speaking of challenges, it seems that in a very Rachel Berry-esque move, Marley has decided that she wants to be the lead in the upcoming school musical Grease. “She’s stepping it up,” she says. “She’s growing a pair and she definitely is really motivated to get Sandy. That’s the only part she wants and and she’s going to work as hard as she has to to get it.” But who else is ready to dig her claws into the part of Sandra Dee? Kitty (Becca Tobin), of course! Ooh I’m sensing a McKinley High cat-fight is in our future in addition to a “really fun” Marley/Kitty duet.
Melissa attended the “American Horror Story: Asylum” premiere in Los Angeles at the Paramount Theatre (October 13).
