Most of the cast of Glee was at the Beverly Hilton Hotel last night for the annual TCA Awards (minus Jane Lynch who was out with laryngitis). And it’s a good thing they were — they were the big winners of the evening. The Fox show scooped up “Program of the Year,” “Outstanding New Program” and “Individual Achievement in Comedy” for Lynch’s portrayal of cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester.
After the short ceremony, I introduced myself to Naya Rivera, who fans will know plays Santana. I asked about the comments made at Comic Con last week and she laughed.
“The one where [Heather Morris and I] make out all the time?”
She didn’t expand further on this, so I will give some of you some everlasting hope that this is true. But what about the episode that could include the BFFs kissing on screen?
“I don’t know,” Naya said. “We never know until we get the scripts and I kind of like it that way!”
She seemed very psyched to have lesbian fans that are pulling for her and Brittany. I also asked if she knew of any romantic interests she would be having this year — aka “Don’t even tell me they are trying to pull you away from the only lesbian thing we have on this show.” Naya had no idea. Ryan Murphy leaves them in the dark.

So, of course, I went straight to the source. Ryan, what’s the deal with that kiss?
“We’re filming that episode on Monday,” he told me — and he said there will definitely be a kiss between them. “Maybe more.”
I told him how much lesbians like the storyline and he said, “Really? Then I need to put them in there making out all the time so people can get used to seeing it.”
Are you kidding me, Mr. Murphy? Best idea you’ve had yet! He told me to write it up, that they will definitely have a kiss together on an upcoming episode. So you heard it here, Naya — tomorrow is your day.
