Looks like things aren’t getting any less heated between Kate Hudson’s Cassandra July and Lea Michele’s Rachel Berry on Glee. The teacher and student are not only fighting for the attention of ridiculously hot Brody (Dean Geyer) but also control of the NYADA dancefloor. In this exclusive clip from this week’s episode, airing Thursday at 9 p.m. on Fox, Cassandra challenges Rachel to strut her stuff as the pair dance off to the Chicago classic “All That Jazz.” Watch the black-leotard bonanza below.

CHANDRA WILSON ON BAILEY’S FUTURE … AND GREY’S ANATOMY
If you read my chat with Grey’s Anatomy‘s Chandra Wilson last week, then you know that Bailey will spend the next episodes “kicking and screaming” her way to the altar. But one thing Wilson thinks might help Bailey get into the groove a bit more? If Ben put a ring on it!
“My finger is light, that’s all I’m saying. It’s very, very light,” she says, laughing. “And he used to be an anesthesiologist. You’d think there would be some sort of bling involved. But her finger is rather light — at least for 2012. So we’ll see what happens going forward.” But regardless of Bailey’s left hand gets a little heavier, Wilson says Bailey is committed. “She’s going to see [it] through,” she says. “You can’t tell somebody you’re going to marry them and then play around.”
And while Bailey and Ben could have many happy years ahead of them, as always, questions are starting to arise about Grey‘s future. Now midway though its ninth season, Wilson says she is anything but tired. And while there won’t be official word about a tenth season for several months, she says she’s personally on board. “I think the consensus is that as long as our writers want to keep writing, we’re here to keep riding the ride,” she says. “As actors, we’re very cognizant of the opportunities we’ve been given. Sooner or later it will be the end.”
Next week’s episode of Glee, fittingly titled “Dynamic Duets,” finds the New Directions crew joining Blaine’s superhero club at McKinley. The time couldn’t be better for the kids to don super identities since the Warblers return and are bent on revenge. But naturally the focus of the episode is still on music. “Seeing the popularity of this club, Fin decides to come up with a lesson called “’Dynamic Duets,’” teases co-creator Ryan Murphy. “He puts people together who are unlikely duet partners and who are not getting along, so like Marley and Kitty are together and Jake and Rider are together. There’s a lot of great superhero-themed numbers. We do REM’s ‘I am Superman,’ Bonnie Tyler’s ‘I Need a Hero,’ David Bowie’s ‘Hero.’”
EW already exclusively debuted the photos of the cast in their superhero garb. But now we can exclusively premiere a special trailer, narrated by Chord Overstreet himself, below…
'Glee' star Amber Riley gets emotional about body image on 'This Is How I Made It' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
MTV’s series This Is How I Made It, which airs on Saturdays at 12pm, profiles celebrities like Chris Brown and Awkward‘s Ashley Rickards about their path to fame. In this week’s episode, Glee star Amber Riley, who plays the confident Mercedes on the Fox hit, discusses her struggles with body image within the entertainment industry and how she never wanted to conform to the industry’s unrealistic standards. “Hollywood is a very hard place to be in. It really is,” admits the actress, currently making her Broadway debut in Cotton Club Parade. Watch a portion of Riley’s honest and moving interview below…
Last week on Glee, Finn (Cory Monteith) and Sue (Jane Lynch) basically declared war on each other over Finn’s casting of Unique (Alex Newell) in the role of Rizzo in McKinley’s production of Grease. Plus, Finn mocked Sue’s newborn baby during their heated argument and left the Cheerios coach livid. Judging from this exclusive clip from this week’s episode “Glease,” things have not cooled down between the pair. Finn comes to the teacher’s lounge to apologize to Sue and then, well, watch the fireworks below.
From Rebecca Black’s “Friday” to “Call Me Maybe,” Glee has left no YouTube fad go uncovered. So it should be no surprise to learn that the gang will perform their version of Psy’s international smash “Gangnam Style” on an episode airing next month — as star Kevin McHale says in the following clip, “You know we had to do it.”
Before you gallop down the street in a colorful tux and sunglasses tonight, take a peek at the Glee cast rehearsing the choreography for their upcoming “Gangnam Style” number. The video also includes a short look at the final product, which we’ll be able to see in full in a few weeks. Enjoy, sexy ladies (and gentlemen):
Last night at a charity event for God’s Love We Deliver, honoree Ryan Murphy took a few minutes on stage to ask party attendee Bette Midler if she would appear on Glee. Luckily, Murphy and Midler live blogged the negotiations via their respective Twitter accounts:
Avert your eyes if you haven’t watched last night’s Glee…but for those who have you’re probably wondering, Who the hell is this Eli guy that Blaine cheated with?!?!?! Seen only in text messages, Eli is the mystery man whom Blaine admitted to Kurt about being with and caused the much-loved Glee gays to break-up.
Now, EW has learned that are no immediate plans to introduce Eli in the coming episodes. But we figure why not brainstorm who should play this troublemaker? It may be that I’ve seen too many Pitch Perfect trailers as of late, but I think Skylar Astin, who plays Anna Kendrick’s love interest in the acapella flick, might be a good choice. He’s cute and he can sing. Plus, he’s a Spring Awakening alum and would reunite him with his former castmates Lea Michele, Jenna Ushkowitz, and Jonathan Groff.
What do you think Gleeks? Who should play Eli?

Tonight’s Glee, titled “The Break-Up,” is one of the most emotionally wrenching episodes in the series’ history. The hour focuses on the strained relationships of four of McKinley’s favorite couples: Finn/Rachel, Kurt/Blaine, Will/Emma, and Santana/Brittany. Without spoiling too much, EW got an early glimpse at the episode and here are some of the [MINOR SPOILER ALERT] highlights from tonight’s cant-miss installment.
Yes, those are two different songs. The first is a hard-rocking single from Aerosmith’s 1993 album Get a Grip; the second is a bit of pop fluff by Britney Spears, best known as the theme from the 1999 teen movie Drive Me Crazy. Mashed together and stripped down, they form a low-key super song that sounds just lovely when performed acoustically by Jacob Artist and Melissa Benoist — a.k.a. Jake Puckerman and Marley Rose, two of McKinley High’s newest students.
You could wait to hear their romantic blend on Thursday, when Glee‘s second Britney Spears-themed episode airs… or you could listen to the song now simply by clicking below the jump.
This week’s Glee is the series second tribute episode to pop star (and now X-Factor judge) Britney Spears. Like the last time, a large chunk of the plot focuses on Brittany S. Pierce (Heather Morris) as evidenced by this full-length performance of Spears’ hit “Hold It Against Me” (other Britney tunes covered in the episode include “Gimme More,” “Oops I Did It Again,” “Womanizer,” “3,” “Everytime,” and a mash-up of “Boys” and Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend”). The slightly slow cheerleader appears to be competing for the spotlight of new Cheerio, Kitty (Becca Tobin). If this performance is representative of the rest of the episode, Gleeks are in for a pretty epic homage to Brit Brit. Watch below…
It’s a double dose of Ms. Spears this Thursday on Fox. After The X Factor, the Glee kids will be honoring the pop princess with a second tribute episode — mostly focusing on her later work — and you can check out a preview below of Gimme More and Oops…I Did It Again (as first released by Ryan Seacrest‘s radio show).
In addition, you can also head over to Glee’s official music site to hear the McKinley kids (and NY transplants!) take on 3, a mash-up of Boys and Justin Bieber’s Boyfriend, Womanizer, and Hold It Against Me.
We’re only one week into season/series premieres and I want to share some embarrassing figures:
4: Number of times I cried during Parenthood‘s premiere.
3: Number of dinners eaten straight out of a container/box because I was too lazy/tired to cook.
1: Times I teared up during Glee (Lea Michele’s phone call KILLED me.)
4: Times I shouted at the TV during Sons of Anarchy‘s premiere.
~22: Number of times I laughed out loud during the New Normal. (I’m guessing it was once per minute)
My point? The fall TV season is already starting off AMAZING, and it’s only going to go up from here. Can’t wait? Not to worry; I have some nice scoop to hold you over until then. Enjoy!
(And don’t forget to keep in touch! E -mail questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter @EWSandraG. Also, if you’re so inclined, share some numbers of your own below. Purely for my entertainment, of course.)
‘GLEE’: FIVE MINI-SCOOPS
From what I can tell, Glee fans seem a little split on the new season. (Also, the Grand Canyon is a kinda big and cookies are sorta delicious.) So, in an effort to please as many people as possible, I’ve included a little scoop for everyone below. For more, check out this Glee post from earlier this week. Enjoy (and play nice, please)!
+ WHERE’S MS. PILLSBURY!? Around. And we’ll see her quite soon, Matthew Morrison promises. In fact, he says, we’ll be seeing a lot more of Will and Emma’s home life than you might think based on the first episode. “We have never seen them actually living together, and now they’re living together this season, cohabitating under one roof,” he says. “It should be interesting. It’s not as easy as I think he thought it was going to be!”
+ SKIN ALERT: Chord Overstreet claims he has a shirtless scene in episode 3. You’re welcome.
+ MORE BIEBER ON THE WAY? It’s no secret that I fell deeply in love with Overstreet’s version of “Baby.” And he says there’s a good chance there’s more Bieber in the works! “I’m a big fan of ‘As Long As You Love Me’ right now. [I] may be doing a couple of mash-ups of some different stuff — and maybe some acoustic stuff,” he says.
+ WHEN THE TWO PUCKERMANS MEET…expect fireworks. “It’s definitely kind of shocking for them both initially,” says Jacob Artist, who says we’ll soon see Puck come face-to-face with his half-brother. “Puck has never met [my character], and I’ve never met Puck. Obviously, the confrontation — there’s a lot of tension going on…it’s definitely a touchy moment for the both of them. [The outcome] definitely affects them.”
+ LOVE TRIANGLE NO. 100000000 Glee loves love triangles. I love a good one, too. And it sounds like Puck Jr. could be involved in one of the many we’ll see this season. “Jake is definitely going to have some romantic drama going on. He’s interested in the new ladies,” Artist says. “I think [he's looking] for somebody that can balance him out. He can be a little crass — so I think [he wants] somebody that can balance him [out].” Any guesses, gang?
’90210′: 100th EPISODE SCOOP!
90210 will hit a big milestone this year — 100 episodes! That’s no small feat in TV land, and what better way to mark the occasion than with Homecoming Weekend! Showrunners Patti Carr and Lara Olsen recently gushed to me about this super-packed episode when we hopped on the phone ahead of the show’s upcoming premiere on Oct. 8.
“We get to go back and re-live a few memories.” Carr said. “And we also have things getting bigger and more out of hand. We got to the Playboy mansion, we have musical performers, and some very revealing moments for our cast.” Also expect some “fan favorites” to pop up.
But, adds Carr: “It’s not just the clip show where they all remember and come out of it unaffected. They’re all profoundly affected by what happens.”
Another treat? Denise Richards, who, as EW previously reported, will appear as an alum-turned-socialite. “There’s so much happening in the 100th episode, I don’t know how we’re going to fit it all in one episode,” says Olsen. Carr jokes: “Maybe it will be a two-part 100th episode — 99.5/100.”
‘GREY’S ANATOMY’: QUICK HITS FROM KEVIN MCKIDD
True story: I adore Kevin McKidd. Not only is he a hard-working guy — currently, he’s editing the fourth episode of the season, which he directed — but he’s a massively good teaser. And while I’m going to wait to share our full convo with you, here are some really tasty bits from our chat. (And, yes, this is a totally mean way for me to do this. But, you have to admit, it’s also a little fun — for me):
SG: Is the cheating issue from last season still hanging over Owen and Cristina this season?
KM: I think we’ve kind of blown past that in a way because the cataclysmic events of what happened, especially everything with Cristina. It’s going to come back and affect Owen as well — even though he wasn’t on the plane. In retrospect, it’s going to come back and really affect him in a big way too and in a way that we don’t expect.
SG: We know that not all of the doctors are going to be working at Seattle Grace in the first episode (which is a flashforward). Obviously you can’t say who, but is it safe to assume that Owen and Christina are still in the same place working on these issues together?
KM: That is not safe to assume…[truncated]
SG: Let’s talk about the flashbacks.
KM: I can’t really say too much because that would be giving stuff away. Flashbacks are featured heavily in episode two and may appear in other ones.
SG: Did any of the characters reactions to the crash surprise you?
KM:…the writers have kind of turned everything on its head and under duress and under stress people do act in a way out of character…
Look for my full chat with McKidd, where he talks about directing and the new season, on Sept. 27, the day of the big season premiere!
