Cory Monteith's mom on 'Good Morning America': 'I'm in awe; always will be'

Cory Monteith’s mother Ann McGregor went on Good Morning America Thursday for her first public interview following her son’s 2013 death.

“Until three days ago, I couldn’t look at a picture of Cory,” she told ABC News’ Bianna Golodryga. “So there’s been progress.”

'Veep' and other TV shows that outgrew their titles

One thing that makes television so great (and different from film) is the luxury of multiple years and seasons to explore different moments and experiences in a character’s life as they naturally progress. Because of that, TV shows frequently evolve drastically from their tidy season 1 concepts, which can make their original titles a bit confusing.

With some minor spoilers ahead, here are six TV shows that might have benefited from a name change during their runs: READ FULL STORY

Lea Michele 'pleads the fifth' when asked about Matthew Morrison on 'WWHL' -- VIDEO

Rachel Berry would never – but Lea Michele kept her lips zipped when she appeared on Watch What Happens Live!, Bravo’s talk show/boozefest hosted by Andy Cohen, Thursday night.

Cohen didn’t waste any time before breaking out his signature game, Plead the Fifth. While he stayed away from asking Michele for details about this year’s Naya Rivera drama, he did bring up something the actress wrote in her just-released book: Prior to Glee, she said, she briefly dated co-star Matthew Morrison. In Cohen’s world, there’s just one inevitable follow-up question: On a scale of one to ten, how was Mr. Schu in bed?

Michele had the perfect dodge to get out of answering: Her dad was standing just a few feet away. Elsewhere in the game, she revealed that she’s never felt any of her plots on Glee came close to jumping the shark…which, I’m sorry, but HAHAHAHAHA. Remember just a few weeks ago, when Rachel quit her lead role on Broadway? Love it or not, that show has been finding new sharks to jump over since the first season…and yet, somehow, Rachel and Co. still have one more Glee season to go.

Rachel and Mr. Schuester?! Lea Michele admits she dated 'Glee' co-star Matthew Morrison

What would Sue Sylvester say?

In her new book Brunette Ambition, Lea Michele talks growing up, fame, and her difficult past year. But she also shares some Glee gossip that would have been quite the big deal in 2010: According to Michele, she dated co-star Matthew Morrison (who plays Glee Club choir director turned insufferable high school student wannabe Will Schuester) for a hot minute years ago — back when they were both working on Broadway, and the Fox dramedy was but a glimmer in Ryan Murphy’s eye.

“When we shot the pilot, I met Cory Monteith, Kevin McHale, Amber Riley, and Chris Colfer for the first time,” Michele writes in the book, according to Us Weekly. “I had worked on Broadway with Jenna Ushkowitz and Matthew Morrison before. Matt had been a friend of mine for years, and in fact we’d actually dated back in the day for a Broadway beat.” READ FULL STORY

Lea Michele addresses 'Glee' drama on 'Letterman' -- VIDEO

LETTERMAN-LEA-MICHELE.jpg

During Friday’s Late Show With David Letterman taping, Glee star Lea Michele got a little flustered when Letterman asked the actress to address certain rumors regarding her “knocking out a co-star.” Dave was referencing reports that Naya Rivera had been pushed out of the Fox musical comedy because of drama with Michele.

After getting her to confess that she did, in fact, know what he was talking about, Letterman told Michele that he had completely made up the rumor in order to see what she would say — watch the video below: READ FULL STORY

Naya Rivera leaving 'Glee'? Here's why we'll miss Santana

Santana was just learning how to be a good friend, too.

News broke April 29 that Naya Rivera — who’s played Santana Lopez on Glee for the past five seasons — is leaving the show, and won’t even be in the fifth season finale. (For what it’s worth: Rivera’s rep said she wasn’t fired; a rep for the show declined to comment to EW). And in Tuesday’s finale, Santana was nowhere to be found. (The show’s explanation: She was “shooting a Yeast-i-Stat commercial in Iowa for a week.”) While fans will have to wait and see if this was indeed Santana’s last stand, there’s no time like the present to look back at highlights featuring one of McKinley High’s most memorable alums.

Watching recent episodes — in which Santana covered for Rachel on Broadway in Funny Girl (!) — it’s easy to forget that when the show originally premiered in 2009, Naya Rivera’s character was something like its fifth female lead. But fans quickly fell in love with Santana: Her rapid-fire insults, slowly-developing relationship with Brittany, and, of course, her smokey pipes all made her a favorite. She became part of Glee‘s original core eight before really breaking out in the show’s later years, moving to New York with Kurt and Rachel before everyone else decided to do the same thing.

'Glee': We pick each character's best performance -- VIDEO

You never forget your first time watching “Don’t Rain On My Parade.”

We’ve already ranked the top Glee performances of all time, which tend to be big group numbers. But any fan of the show also treasures its individual star-making moments — whether they’re quick ditties sung in the choir room, or, inexplicably, full solos sung at a competition.

In honor of the musical dramedy’s 100th episode, which airs tonight, we looked back over Glee‘s first 99 installments to pick out our favorite musical moments for each main character. (And by that, we mean the ones who sing a lot — sorry, Emma and Sue Sylvester.) Watch video of our selections below — and then tell us your personal faves in the comments.  READ FULL STORY

'Glee' 100th episode: Do you know what HASN'T happened on the show? QUIZ

How many times can you go to Regionals?

The Glee kids hit the big 100th episode milestone this week, which means it’s time for a look back. Remember when Rachel thought she was pregnant? Remember when Brittany had a web series titled Fondue for Two? Remember when there was a shooting at McKinley? NEVER FORGET.

Even a casual viewer of the show knows this musical dramedy goes through plot faster than the Glee kids go through crushes on each other. We don’t know what’s in store for the McKinley kids as they all become Broadway stars in New York (RIP, Smash!), but we do know there’s very little the show hasn’t already explored.

Below, test your memory about all the crazy things that have happened at one point or another — and see if you can spot the few things that never actually took place. Good luck!

Which plot points haven’t happened — yet? READ FULL STORY
