'Glee' countdown: Hot for (substitute) teacher -- Gwyneth's back!

GLEE-HOLLYImage Credit: FoxTonight, TV’s freakiest substitute teacher is back at McKinley High! Gwyneth Paltrow is reprising her role as Holly Holiday, and this time, she’s subbing as the sex ed teacher and teaming up with possible future flame Mr. Schu to teach the Glee kids — through song, as always — about the “dangers of sex.” So they go about it by singing sexy songs. And strutting around sexily. And being the tall, blond epitome of sexiness. After all, as was the case with drinking, there just aren’t that many songs about the joys of abstinence. Look forward to Holly’s hair-whipping performance of “Do You Wanna Touch Me” and her hot duet of “Kiss” with Mr. Schu. Personally, I’m thoroughly excited for more Gwyneth, even if we have been seeing a lot of her musical side lately.

Can Gwynnie repeat her “Forget You” magic, or do you think we’re being Country Strong-armed (thank you) into seeing her as a singer? And which of the Glee kids (or adults) are most in need of sex ed? After the episode, come back here to sound off about it, and check back early in the morning for Sandra’s recap!

    Is it true that SuBo (Susan Boyle) was suppose to guest star as a cafeteria worker? I think that might work. Also I was looking at something on you tube with Jennifer Holliday singing on it and that got me to thinking that the producers should get her on there. She could play Mercedes` aunt or a choir director at the school.

      I recall reading that rumor around a year ago and thought she was possibly going to appear around the Christams episode. I also read that Javier Bardem was being considered as a guest star as well (due to the fact that he was on “Eat Pray Love”) but that was before Charice, Gwyneth, and now Anne Hathaway were signed to be guesters…

    • james

      Paltrow was amazing and she did so much — that tango was superb.

    • Team Brittana

      I am in love with this ep. Best one to date, i cant stop crying. Santana finally opened up and that locker scene killed me. Please i beg you ryan murphy continue their relationship, please for gods sake.

    • TP

      Isn’t she already on in the role of Coach Bieste?

  • LOL

    TV for idiots. Turn it off.

    • Tom


      You have become my favorite person on here. Perhaps after this you can go post on the box office report that Americans love stupid movies. Oh wait, you already did… again…

      • dipshat

        LOL! But not that way…

    • Pillow Pants

      It’s called the boob tube for a reason, genius.

    • Fruttel

      LOL, how do you know it’s TV for idiots?? Were you watching by any chance??
      Or maybe you are you an expert on “idiot TV-viewers”?

  • Flip

    I wish they’d make Gwyneth’s cover of Bette Davis Eyes available on iTunes…

  • kat

    I don’t care about gwyneth. I want more Santana and more John Stamos on my tv screen please. Thank you.

  • Shannon

    Abstinence-friendly tunes? Well, there’s “Relax, Don’t Do It” and “We Don’t Have To Take Our Clothes Off” (so I guess it’s about quickies…).
    Other than that, I’m not sure.
    Oh, wait. There’s that ol’ Avril Lavigne tune (no, not the one about sleeping around) where she threatens some dude for trying to get in her pants.

  • Eli

    Awesome. Another reason NOT to watch!

  • Richard

    its overexposure to the extreme: paltrow has been on glee (twice), the grammys, the country music awards, the oscars, SNL, and soon the “who do you think you are” show (now there’s an appropriate title).

  • Leigh

    I’m not really a big fan of the themed episodes. It reads a little after-school-special to me.

  • Rolo Tomasi

    Glee sucks and keeps falling in the ratings. Not even in the top 25 for last week. Time to move on EW

    • Matt

      last week was a re-run…

      • Rolo Tomasi

        So? So wasn’t the Mentalist, still made it. The week before that it was rated 19, beaten by shows like Mike and Molly.

      • Emma

        What are you looking at? Total viewers? Because Glee rates very highly in the demos, which is really all that matters. And Im saying this not even as a fan of the show, just someone who follows the numbers. And the fact that it didnt make it when it was a repeat…who really gives a sh**? It was a repeat.

    • Toby

      ummmm, Glee wasn’t even on last week. It was American Idol

  • Duncan Smith

    So Glee decided to do a cover of the repeated pedophile Gary Gliter. WOW!!!

    • Shannon

      Well, It’s going to be the Joan Jett version.

  • sam

    Will Glee ever stop trying to get a singing career for her? The performance of Do You Want to Touch Me was ridiculous.

    • Shannon

      It was supposed to be. Seeing as it was the initiation of a sex ed class…

      • sam

        No, ridiculous because Gwyneth trying to be sexy just looks silly. And she doesn’t sound much better. I like her acting, but on Glee she is really terrible.

      • Shannon

        Would you prefer to watch her in Country Strong?

  • Jewelsws

    “Everybody’s got a random?” CLASSIC AND TRUE!!

  • Jane

    I’m no Holly Golightly fan. She’s lame. But I like the idea of Will not pining away for that sadsack Emma. He could do better. I don’t think Holly’s better by much, but she’s different.

    • Renaton

      hey! What do you have against Audrey Hepburn?

  • jewel

    UG! I like GP, but not everywhere! country, glee, country music awards, enough already! She has her career, let Glee be Glee and let GP FLEE!

    • Shh

      Gwyneth is too GOOD for this mess of a show IMO, I wish she completed her guest spot and leave.

  • Steph

    Uhhh what was that awful falsetto from Mr. Shue during Kiss?

    • Shannon

      He sounded higher than Gwyneth.
      Take that anyway you want…

      • Meg

        Well, she was worried about kicking him in the you-know-where, according to one of EW’s articles…

    • Cheri

      I can’t be the only one on the planet who hates it when Gwyneth appears on Glee…can I? I wouldn’t mind a small dose of her. Maybe one song. But that can’t happen – she has to be in most every scene, show up in most every song and BE the show. So damn annoying! GO AWAY.
