One last one for now. Quinn is the daughter of a friend of mine. She's four. Don't remember where Fabray came from. Think Ian made it up
And Mrs. Schuester was my fifth grade teacher. I don't remember her first name and "Will" sounded earnest.
Sam was a friend of Ryan's growing up and Evans is for Dwight Evans RF Boston Red Sox.
RB got her first name because her gay dads were big "Friends" fans and last name because I went to school with a girl named Rachel Berry.
KILL ME NOW
this sucks so bad...

Kristin Chenoweth helps Montblanc launch its “Tribute to the Montblanc” collection at Saks Fifth Avenue on Thursday (May 19) in New York City.
The 42-year-old actress wore a Theory dress and accessorized with Montblanc jewelry.
The “Tribute to the Montblanc” collection pays homage to the Mont Blanc mountain with all-white writing instruments, leather pieces and jewelry. A portion of proceeds from the collection will support projects that work towards the protection of the Mont Blanc range.
Kristin sat down with JustJared.com at the event to talk about appearing on Oprah’s Series Finale Spectacular, her new ABC showGood Christian Belles, her upcoming album Some Lessons Learned, and her thoughts on the Glee season finale!
Just Jared: Tell us a little bit about why we are here today.
Kristin Chenoweth: I am helping Montblanc celebrate the launch the “Tribute to the Montblanc,” which is their all white collection of pens, jewelry, leather goods, some of which I’m wearing right now.
JJ: What was it like singing for Oprah during her series finale?
KC: Indescribable. One of the top three moments of my life. [When I got the call] I wanted to make sure it was real before I celebrated. I didn’t actually celebrate until I was done singing.
JJ: On the same day you sing “For Good” for Oprah, the song will be featured on the Glee finale. What’s it like for the song to get so much exposure in one day?
KC: I’m just glad for Stephen Schwartz [the composer of Wicked] because he wrote it and it came out of his mind and it is a song that means a lot to a lot of people. It’s nice to be original.
JJ: Did Lea Michele or Chris Colfer ask you for any advice before doing the “For Good” duet?
KC: Oh no, they don’t need my advice. They’re so fabulous.
JJ: Good Christian Belles was just picked up by ABC. What can you tell us about the show?
KC: I can tell you that it will be hard for people not to look at one of the characters and recognize them. I hope they think it’s as fun as I do. It’s pretty great. It is in the world of church, but it’s women who fight all kinds of demons and I am that Queen Bee who likes to stir it up a bit.
JJ: Do you get to sing on the show?
KC: Possibly so! I have a feeling that this character puts herself in the choir and maybe gets herself a solo.
JJ: What shows would you compare it to?
KC: I don’t think there has been anything like it. That’s one of the reasons why I was drawn to it. Bobby Harling who wrote Steel Magnolias, who writes women beautifully, wrote it, and Darren Star, who created Sex and the City and 90210, is our producer. So it is kind of like ours to screw up.
JJ: Your new album drops in September and the single will be released at the end of the month. What can you tell us about those?
KC: I’m excited about the single. I’m really excited about people hearing the record. This was the record when Sony Classical signed me, can I please do this one.
JJ: Why did you name it Some Lessons Learned?
KC: Because I’ve learned a lot of those lessons. I think with human lessons, failures, successes; I’ve always been one to kind of put it out there. I’ve never been one to hide, I feel that certainly. I’ve learned a lot of lessons and I think I have a lot more to learn. It’s not just about love. It’s about friendship and family, and certainly lost love. I don’t know anybody who can’t relate to all of those subjects.
JJ: Will you go on tour to support the album?
KC: I will go on tour for it. The question is when. Now that we know that Good Christian Belles got picked up, I will plan a tour around it. It’s going to kill me, but I’m going to do it. I’m dying to get on the road. I’ve never really done a tour, so to speak.
JJ: You’re currently involved in the reading for the Tammy Faye Bakermusical, can you tell us about that?
KC: She was quite an amazing person. She was the first televangelist who supported gay people. And she was truly the most real person I had ever seen. You think its fake because it’s so real. She’s also a character, which makes her very fun to play, and she’s been to hell and back, which makes her fun to play. I’m really excited about the project. Henry Krieger wrote the music, and if he can write Dreamgirls, people can expect great things.
JJ: Are you hoping it will come to Broadway?
KC: I am. I believe in the project so much. I have very little time, so when I have the time, I want to donate it to something I truly believe in, so yes!
16. Blaine Anderson, (Darren Criss), “Glee”
Had this kid more than one get-up on the show, he may have landed higher. The good news: his one is a slam dunk. He’s basically the epitome of the clean-cut collegiate prepster. He shows up his schoolmates by wearing the repp-tie-anchored uniform with confidence and swagger—a feat that ain’t easy to achieve when you’re the gay kid in a high school in America…even if said school is a progressive private establishment wherein you are the ringleader of a Glee club called “The Warblers.”
Mr. Schue is nearly a mirror image of Ben Wyatt—another flatly earnest, well-meaning Midwesterner with a penchant for smart ties, chinos and sensible vests. Oh, and cardigans. And embarrassing solo musical performances of Britney Spears songs. And, erm, fedoras. Still, as far as public high school teachers go, there’s not one as well put-together as this Gleek God.
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the playwright and comic book writer who was brought on to rewrite and hopefully save Broadway's Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, has booked several projects to follow. On the TV side, he'll become a co-producer and writer of the hit series Glee. And I'm told that he's just been set by MGM and Screen Gems to write a remake of Carrie, the Stephen King thriller about the telekinetic teenager who gets pushed too far at the prom and wreaks havoc on her fellow high school students. King's bestselling book was turned into the 1976 film that starred Sissy Spacek, John Travolta, Amy Irving and Piper Laurie as the repressive mother.
For Aguirre-Sacasa, these diverse projects are right in his wheelhouse. On Carrie, he will write a version that is more faithful to the King book than the earlier movie, much the same as Joel and Ethan Coen went back to the Charles Portis novel True Grit to present a version that didn't really feel like a remake. Aguirre-Sacasa has a relationship with the author, after writing the graphic novel version of King's The Stand, King's seminal apocalyptic novel.
Aguirre-Sacasa was certainly an inspired choice to come aboard and try to fix the mess that was Spider-Man. He wrote the book to the Charles Strouse/Lee Adams musical It's A Plane, It's SUPERMAN! that was a hit at the Dallas Theatre Center, and he has also written Spider-Man comics for Marvel along with such titles as American Nightmares. The WME-repped scribe also wrote on the HBO series Big Love. We'll know how well Aguirre-Sacasa did when Spider-Man opens on Broadway on June 14.
Okay. Now when you do things like this, it's EXTREMELY, EXTREMELY important that you don't begin to cry out of sexy emotion, or salivate and ruin your computer. I know, I know, Blaine Warbler is very much the sexiest high school kid alive, and Darren Criss just happens to be the even sexier guy that plays him- but let's just try and contain ourselves. Let's just try.
Darren Criss tries on a few wedding suits for GQ Magazine, and I mean... what else is there to say? The guy looks dapper and totally cool. I wish I looked like Darren does here- great, now I have to go and buy all of these awesome clothes! There goes my drinking money... thanks Glee!
But seriously, these are all great looks (the plaid jacket is my favorite, I need that). What's yours?
I know you recap Glee, so where’s the love for the show? Don’t make me sic my cat Lord Tubbington on you! — Jacklyn
I’d really like to know if LT is climbing the list of most used cat names as fast as I predict. I hope so — because that would be brilliant. Anyway, let’s talk Nationals. If you believe executive producer Brad Falchuk, it’s going to be simultaneously brilliant and chaotic. “It’s Nationals, so it’s actually a much bigger…it’s teams from all over the country so it’s a much bigger pool. These are these kids from a little place in Ohio, like the Bad News Bears. The whole idea is that no matter how big Regionals has been or Sectionals has been, this is a totally different world and the scope is much bigger and the pressure is much higher and are they prepared for it?” he reveals. “Can they overcome their internal squabbles to come together and take this?” I believe they can…as long as they stop killing people and making us all do the ugly cry.
Hey! Sandra! Need some info on this Finchel date! What happens?! Do they kiss? …OR MORE?!?– Sharee
I can’t spoil the ending!!! And neither will Lea Michele: “We get to go to a lovely dinner and we walk to through Central Park together,” she says. “You’ll have to see how it ends.”
Terri said she’s moving to Miami. Is Jessalyn Gilsig leaving the show? Say it ain’t so! – Rion
It will definitely be an extended leave. But whether it’s permanent remains to be seen since this team has been known to change its mind very quickly. But I’m told that Jessalyn Gilsig will be quite busy in the summer anyhow. She soon begins production on a movie in which she’ll star and produce called, Somewhere Slow. That already sounds like more than they’ve given Terri to do all season!

"Glee" star Chris Colfer on meeting politicians who don't vote for gay rights – but want a picture with him
"Glee" star Chris Colfer will be a guest on "Piers Morgan Tonight" on Monday night, 9pmET/PT, and he talks about his rise to fame, homophobia and more. But he also discusses a recent visit to the White House Correspondents dinner, where he encountered some politicians. "Like a huge nerd, I do watch C-SPAN occasionally," he told Piers Morgan. "And so it's great when people come up and they're like, 'I just love you, can I have a picture with you,' and I'm like yeah sure, you don't believe in me or my rights, but you want a picture with me, sure I'll have a picture with you."
Does he think a picture could change their future votes?
"It's more likely they'll change their mind positively if I give them the picture," he said. "It is kind of nice when people believe so strongly against you and yet they want to prove that they meant you."
Watch the full interview, 9pmET/PT.

Heather Morris is doing what she does best.
The Glee actress, 24, is showing off her rockin' body in a tiny, red two-piece on the June cover of Women's Health magazine.
"Do whatever you like to do, eat how you want to eat, but just make sure you stay [active]," she explains of how she keeps in shape. "I take a lot of exercise cardio classes. I do a ton of squats."
She also gets in a good workout on Fox's hit song-and-dance show playing Brittany Pierce.
"I'm exactly like Brittany," Morris says of her fun-loving character. "I love to dance, I like to have fun. I want to make everybody laugh."
But a particular aspect of her small-screen life doesn't appeal to her non-famous beau Taylor Hubbell.
"He just doesn't like watching me kiss other people," she says. "It doesn't matter if it's Artie [Kevin McHale] or Santana [Naya Rivera]."
WHAT LIES AHEAD
One More Episode: This is it, Gleeks. The season finale of Glee is next week, and wow, are they going out with some fireworks. From musical numbers to couple drama, "New York" will have it all. Shippers, prepare for some stuff about these couples to come at your face next week: Will and Emma, Finn and Quinn, Brittany and Santana, and Finn and Rachel. I will not say more than that right now. Just know that the finale is a doozy.
The Mashup to End All Mashups: The "I Love New York/New York, New York" number that is performed in the season finale will probably become one of your favorite performances of all Glee time. And if you live in New York or just love NYC, it will be especially outstanding. Ryan Murphy definitely made use of his supersized budged for this episode.
An All-Girl Glee Club: Don't forget about the other glee clubs performing at Nationals. I hear that one of them is an all-girls school. And they will rock your brain. Will they rock harder than New Directions? That's up to the fictional judges, unfortunately.
Get Ready to Hang on That Cliff: Yes, in true finale fashion, the episode will ends in cliffhangers. That's plural, folks. As in more than one. And one of the cliffhangers will have to do with a couple. Does someone actually hang off a cliff? I don't think so, but that would be awesome.
Sometimes, Glee gets everything right.
"Funeral" had everything we loved, and it even threw in some things that we didn't even know we wanted. There were moments that moved me to tears, numbers that got me doing a dance in my chair, and storylines that changed the fates for some of our favorite couples. Tonight, Glee definitely got it right. So, let's go back and reminisce about one of the best episodes of the season, plus start the countdown to the season two finale!
Warning: Major spoilers ahead about tonight's episode, so only read on if you've already watched, or if you don't mind plot lines revealed. Moving on...
WHAT WE LEARNED
Jesse St. James Is Boss: Jonathan Groff was featured much more prominently in this episode, and it was awful to watch. And by that I mean that so much flawless perfection hurts my eyes. But the pain was worth it to have Jesse not only bringing back auditions to find New Directions' star (more on that process down below), but it also meant some awesome friction between Finn and Rachel. And as my Finchel fans know, friction = feelings. Plus, it was nice to see Rachel worrying about being a star again, and I think Jesse played a huge part in that.
Jane Lynch Secures Another Emmy Nomination: I've known for awhile that it would be Sue's sister dying in this episode, but it still didn't prepare me for Jane Lynch's positively killer performance. She was her usual over-the-top evil self, which always brings a laugh, but the moments where she admitted to being lost and unable to deal…that's where Jane really shined. Telling Will that Becky was off the cheerleading team because she reminded Sue of her recently departed sister started the awesome-acting train, and it never slowed down. The scene with Finn (Cory Monteith) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) helping Sue clean up her sister's room was positively heartbreaking. The entire episode Sue straddled the line between "pretending to be fine" and "overcompensating for the pain" and Jane nailed every last moment of screen time. I'm currently driving over to her house to help her pick out an Emmy dress. We're going with robin's egg blue this year. Also, I seriously cannot not talk enough about how much I loved the trio of Kurt, Finn and Sue. Magnificent. The Willy Wonka setup? I can't. I just can't.
Auditions Are Always Fun: I am so in love with the fact they brought back auditions for this episode. Even though it was for a starring role in a Nationals number, it was a great callback to the pilot. Rachel (Lea Michele) putting that star next to her name put a smile next to my heart. I love remembering the wonderful parts of season one. We got great numbers from the New Directions members, plus Jesse was there to be awesomely nasty. What an explosion of Glee fun! Seriously, it's all over my TV screen. Especially when Mercedes (Amber Riley) stalked offstage dragging the microphone behind her.
Will's Future As Glee Leader Is Uncertain: Well done, Mr. Schuester. I'd also employ the woman with OCD to help me pack. Of course he probably had other reasons enlisting Emma (Jayma Mays) as organizer. Because who else would help him sort out his vests and his feelings on chasing his Broadway dreams? The vest thing was a nice touch, since we got a sweet Will (Matthew Morrison) and Emma moment while they reminisced about the first time they met. The whole packing scene was the perfect setup for Will's trip to New York with his team, but his whole "I'll be back by the end of the summer" spiel reminded me of when teenagers in horror movies say, "I'll be right back." That never ends up well for anyone. Don't leave us, Mr. Schue!
Rachel Didn't Sing "My Man" for Finn: Yeah, right. And I think Lea Michele has a terrible voice. Please, people. We didn't need the slow-motion shot of Finn (who else thought that was oddly funny?) to know that Rachel was singing that song for her man. Lea owned that number, which was no surprise, but I also loved that Jesse was expecting her to serenade him. I bet you think this song is about you, Jesse. Too bad it's not. But then he was the one to smooch her in the end, so I guess he wins. For now.
So Close, Yet So Far Away: Quinn (Dianna Agron) got what was coming to her in the form of Finn finally admitting that he can't fix them and that he wants to break up. But, in the last moments of the episode, Quinn reveals that she has "big plans" for Finn in New York. So close to being done with Finn and Quinn! And so close to Finn bringing a flower to Rachel! Jesse swoops in yet again. And Will making amends with Terri before she moved to Miami meant he's wide open for some Emma love…too bad Emma pretty much kissed him goodbye by, um, kissing him goodbye and rooting for him to stay in New York. Speaking of New York, despite Jesse's "expert" advice, Mr. Schue decides to stick with group numbers and original songs for Nationals. Good choice, you curly-haired hunk of dancing man meat. Nationals is going to be awesome.
One of the Most Touching TV Funerals Ever: Jean's funeral was one giant sobfest for me. Why? Only all of this: "I miss my sister. Every night at 10 or so she used to call me on the phone and when I asked her why, she'd tell me that her body told her she wanted to hear my voice." Will coming up to help Sue finish the speech when she couldn't get through without breaking down. "When you love someone liked I loved her, they're a part of you." The faces of the glee club members as they listen to Sue's words. "I remember a life led with no enemies, no resentments and no regrets." Will's tears and his arm on Sue's shoulder. Sue mouthing "thank you" to the glee club after they sang Jean's favorite song. "I love you, Jeanie. Rest in peace." After the tears were cried and Sue was back making her smoothie, she let Becky back on the Cheerios as next year's captain and she resolved to stop torturing glee club.
Rewind Moment: The entire "Pure Imagination" number. Because one crying fit wasn't enough for me.
