Jayma Mays: 'I kneeled at Betty White's feet'

November 7th, 2013 3:10am EST
Betty White
Glee star Jayma Mays was so in awe of TV comedy veteran Betty White when the two women first met she dropped to her knees to worship the former Golden Girls star.

The actress admits she completely embarrassed herself when she finally ran into White, who had been her TV idol ever since she was a kid.

She says, "Golden Girls was like my favourite show, still is. I drink out of a Golden Girls mug every single morning.

"I met Betty White... I probably scared the poor woman... I remember seeing her and I kind of locked eyes on her... It was kind of an out of body experience.

"The next thing...

October 21st, 2013 12:20pm EDT
Jayma Mays
Jayma Mays says it wasn't her choice to leave 'Glee'.
The redheaded beauty announced her departure from the long-running musical comedy earlier this year, but has now admitted the show's creators decided to write out her beloved character Emma Pillsbury.
She told the Metro newspaper: "It wasn't my choice. The creators decided to do it. We knew it was coming last year. Some other characters will also be leaving this season. It's very sad to be going, but I understand why they do it. It's about getting new blood into the show. I really enjoyed playing Emma. I don't know how I'm written out ye...

Lea Michele
Lea Michele is slowly moving forward from Cory Monteith's death.

But another friend close to the brunette beauty insisted she is st...

Glee
Glee star Jayma Mays is walking away from the show after five seasons.

The actress, who plays high school counselor Emma Pillsbury, has been in the cast since Glee first aired in 2009, but she has confirmed the programme's upcoming fifth run will be her last.

She says, "This is going to be my last season. I'm finishing up this season, so I'm not sure what direction and who's coming on and who's not."

The future of the musical hit is currently uncertain following the death of lead actor Cory Monteith earlier this month (Jul13). The next series will kick off in the U.S. a week later than s...

Gross! Jayma Mays Had A Bug Living In Her Ear

July 25th, 2013 3:03pm EDT
Jayma Mays
Actress Jayma Mays is still recovering after learning an insect had been living in her ear.

The Glee star thought she had burst her ear drum, but discovered the "horrible pain" she was experiencing was caused by bug burrowing into her head.

In an interview on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno she explains, "A week ago I started getting this really bad ear infection, which I get from time to time. I get them, they go away. A couple (of) days into this infection, I wake up in the middle of the night screaming in pain, like horrible, horrible pain and blood started coming out of my ear. So I to...

Jaimie Alexander
As we inch closer to the Academy Awards, tons of stars celebrated themselves at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards on Sunday night.

Jaimie Alexander of "The Last Stand" (above) was one of the few celebs who showed some skin on the red carpet in a low-cut black Marc Bouwer gown. Most opted for more conservative ensembles in black, navy blue, and other neutrals.

A handful stood out in bright colorful gowns, including Jessica Chastain and Kaley Cuoco in bright red and Lea Michele in a bright pink dress.

Jennifer Garner, whose husband Ben Affleck is earning accolades for "Argo," looked ele...

Top Celebrity Fashion Fails Of 2011
Failure is such a harsh word isn't it? To tell someone that something they've created is a "fail" is just wrong… but let's face it, we all love to hate a little bit.

'Glee' Recap: It's Mash-Up Week!

November 16th, 2011 9:50am EST
Glee 305
It seems like ‘Glee’ has just decided to pretend last week’s West Side Virgin Story never happened. Thank goodness! What a relief it is to jump right back into election season and age-inappropriate relationships! Puck leads the boys in a sexually charged performance of Van Halen’s “Hot for Teacher” within the first five minutes of the episode and it's clear that we can put 'The First Time' behind us and have some fun this week.

The good news gets even better when Ms. Corcoran , who has nice scenes with just about every single character in this show, speaks to Mr. Schue about keeping their...

'Glee' Recap: Virgin Scorecard

November 9th, 2011 12:53pm EST
Glee Rachel and Blaine
Like Sandra Dee, this week’s ‘Glee’ was lousy with virginity. Expectations were high after promos showed Rachel, Finn, Kurt and Blaine all getting their sexy on… but as it happened, ‘The First Time’ was kind of disappointing.

Unfortunately, West Side Story just doesn’t lend itself to this theme the way Madonna does. The season one tribute to the Queen of Pop covered similar territory and featured “Like a Virgin,” the most perfect song for the occasion. More importantly, the subject of de-flowering came up naturally and organically. Conversely, this week’s sudden sexual awakening isn’t moti...

'Glee' Recap: Puck Goes To Cougar Town

November 2nd, 2011 1:37pm EDT
GLEE: Quinn (Dianna Agron, L) and Puck (Mark Salling, R)
After yielding its timeslot to Major League Baseball for the past few weeks, “Glee” returned last night with an hour of leprechauns, cougars, and congressional candidates. Picking up where the series left off, this reasonably focused episode advanced several plotlines and introduced some new talent, in the form of ‘Glee Project’ winner, Damian McGinty.

The second of four new cast members that will, at some point, be transplanted from the Oxygen Channel’s competitive reality show to the Fox flagship, McGinty was front and center in his inaugural appearance as foreign exchange student, Rory...

Fall TV Progress Report: Grading 10 New And Returning Shows

October 14th, 2011 1:00pm EDT
dennings, behrs
Fall is one of my favorite times of year, and it’s not because of everything from, lattes to cakes, is pumpkin-flavored and stores are stuffed with caramel apples. It’s because there is a fresh, shiny crop of new and returning shows to devour. Most shows are at least three episodes in, so it’s time to grade 10 new and returning shows to gauge their progress in this burgeoning season.

Fashion Fail: 'Glee' Star Jayma Mays Pairs Horse Print With Plaid

Jayma Mays
Jayma Mays attended the premiere of FX's "American Horror Story" in Hollywood yesterday. From the waist down she looks just fine, but that horse print sweater and plaid jacket have got to go.

This isn't the first time the "Glee" star made our "Fashion Fail" list. Over the summer, she wore a shiny green strapless dress to "The Smurfs" premiere.

Jayma has also appeared in the TV series "Heroes" and "Ugly Betty."

Wishes Of A Television-aholic: 'Glee'

August 12th, 2011 9:58am EDT
glee cast
Believe it or not, this television-aholic actually scoffed at the early promos of what would come to be FOX’s mega-hit, “Glee.” The show looked silly and childish, and I thought it would be cancelled before the fourth episode. My initial assumptions were glaringly and wonderfully wrong. “Glee” is the television equivalent of cotton candy—brightly colored, lighthearted and achingly sweet. It makes me feel inspired and happy while most of my favorite shows make me want to curl up in the fetal position and ugly-cry.

Unfortunately, the last season was a little more sour than sweet thanks t...

Fashion Fails: Jessica Biel, Rose McGowan, And More

July 29th, 2011 4:00pm EDT
Jessica Biel
It's Fashion Fail Friday! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: The fails!

Jessica Biel appeared at Comic Con to talk about the Total Recall remake. Perhaps all that time discussing the original film has her thinking it's the 90s again, because that's where her hiked-up shorts and belly-baring shirt belong.

Remember when denim dresses were stylish? Neither do we, but apparently they were. Rose McGowan is trying to bring the fad back, and she fails miserably in a dress that looks like an over-sized pan...

Jayma Mays Makes The Big Screen Leap In 'The Smurfs'

July 26th, 2011 1:09pm EDT
Jayma Mays
Growing up, Jayma Mays’ mother may have been the bigger Smurfs fan. The Glee star’s mom would call her to the TV every time the cute little blue creatures’ adventures appeared. When Mays got the role in The Smurfs opposite the blue benefactors of 60 years of great creations based on the mind of their creator, Peyo, mom was prouder than usual for her talented daughter.

With Glee entering the stratosphere of pop culture fandemonium, Jayma Mays finds herself starring in a film celebrating another cultural icon -- The Smurfs. Mays recently visited with SheKnows and extolled the virtues of li...

'Glee' Cast To Be Replaced By New Actors Next Year

June 21st, 2011 11:24am EDT
Glee cast
The current cast of "Glee" including Lea Michele and Cory Monteith will be replaced in 2012.

The musical TV hit, set in a high school, has taken the world by storm since it first aired in 2009, and has made stars of castmembers including Michele, Monteith, Chris Colfer and Dianna Agron.

But to maintain the series' realism, creator Ryan Murphy has decided the current class should graduate in 2012 and leave the show for good.

In an interview on Ryan Seacrest's radio show, he says, "That is true. I don't think of it in terms of eliminating or replacing. Because I think the thing about this ...

'Glee' Finale: Let's Hear It For 'New York'

May 25th, 2011 11:25am EDT
The glee club visits New York City for Regionals
We made it! ‘Glee’ is in NYC to compete at Nationals and conclude a chart-topping, show-stopping, star-studded, post-Super Bowl time-slot scoring second season.

True to form, our favorite fictional show choir is in a situation that is about as absurd as the Broadway-obsessed Rachel Berry thinking that CATS is still open for business. New Directions has come to Nationals without a song or a set list and now they need to write a couple of hits in as many overstuffed hotel rooms. Brittany, Artie, and Puck offer up the ditty, “My Cup,” and there are enough eyes rolling around the room for som...

'Glee' Recap: Love, Loss, And Pure Imagination

Glee Funeral
This week was a big one! ‘Glee’ is gearing up for Nationals in New York, but before they take Manhattan, Finn calls it quits with Quinn, Rachel and Jesse share a kiss, and all the plans to win get interrupted by a sad and surprising loss. It’s the penultimate episode of the season and as Mr. Schue puts it, the culmination of everything the glee club has worked towards for the past two years. They’ve got to be awesome and this week, they kind of were.

Like Kirsten Dunst hiring a jazz hands-obsessed choreographer in the movie, “Bring It On,” Mr. Schue has made the decision to recruit 4-time...

We’ve been waiting for Glee’s new episode Prom Queen since we saw the promo with the slap heard around the world -- and now it’s here! So, what’s going down at McKinley High’s prom? We'd all like to know!

Here's what we do know about the all-new episode so far. When the McKinley High prom entertainment suddenly comes up short, Principal Figgins calls on the kids o...

In just a few weeks, the glee club is going to Nationals, prom royalty will be crowned, and Lady Gaga will release a new album. It’s a trifecta of amazing events that deserve to be brought together in a super sparkly, extra-long ‘Glee’ that’s all about self-acceptance.

Rather than hit us over the head with the theme of this episode, Finn clocks Rachel in the nose. In under a minute, rhinoplasty is on the table and New Directions is debating the merits of surgically enhanced vs unconditional self-acceptance. Miss Pillsbury is brought in to help Mr. Schue drive home the message that this we...

The one-two punch of the Super Bowl and Valentine’s Day hit the “Glee” gang pretty hard, and this non-holiday themed return is all about launching a ‘Comeback.’

First, welcome back Guidance Counselor and Stamos Wife, Emma Pilsbury. Though she seldom felt compelled to step in and combat the bullying at McKinley, a Sue-icide note from the fallen cheer coach has reminded her of the office full of all-purpose pamphlets she has yet to hand out to students and teachers in need. In a world where depressed faculty members audit extra-curricular activities, that and a bad idea is all it takes to ge...
