Mercedes to Reveal "Girlie" Side on Season 3 of Glee

by at . Comments

As Mercedes, Amber Riley concluded season two of Glee in one relationship - with Chord Overstreet's Sam, who has since left the show in a development the actress says will be "addressed" - and will soon enter into another one on season three, with a new character played by Lamarcus Tinker.

But there's a method to this dating madness, Riley said at Fox’s fall kickoff party:

"Mercedes is actually going to be shown in a different light for once. She has a relationship, and you’re going to see a softer side of her. She’s very lovey-dovey. It’s kind of like, ‘Oh my God? Is this Mercedes?!’ She dresses different. She’s girlier now.”

As for the Glee music ahead on season three, Riley offered the following tease: “We’re doing a lot more Broadway songs this season. The first couple episodes are very, very Broadway.”

That does follow along with another show spoiler: Kurt and Rachel are expected to join the school play.

i think the lack of relationship had more to do with her weight. I think there is certainly a misconception that fat people cannot possibly find someone who would like them and find them attractive. I think the industry does not believe viewers want to see fat lovin. Fat people on tv often play the odd or funny BFF but seldom the leading role. This is certainly changing in Hollywood and the music industry but more so for male than for female roles. I hope they feature Mercedes more she is certainly my fav character on the show.

it's about time Mercedes got a boyfriend, i was sick of this a-sexual character, that didn't need love, or a man. I mean everyone else was paired up, it just seemed a bit racist stereotyping. black skin women need and want love too, were no too strong and independent for love!

I'm excited to see Mercedes in a relationship and be happy, but hopefully she won't be giving up who she is. Also, I'm really, really hoping we didn't miss her first kiss yet :)

Glee Quotes

You know, a great big fat person once stood on this stage and told a group of a dozen or so nerds in hideous disco outfits that glee, by its very definition, is about opening yourself up to joy. Now it's no secret that for a long time I thought that was a load of hooey. As far as I could see the glee club was nothing but a place where a bunch of cowardly losers go to sing their troubles away and delude themselves into thinking that they live in a world that cares one iota about their hopes and dreams, totally divorced from the harsh reality that in the real world there's not much more to hope for than disappointment, heartbreak, and failure. And you know what. I was exactly right. Thats exactly what glee club is. But I was wrong about the cowardly part. What I finally realized, now that I'm well into my late thirties, it takes a lot of bravery to look around you and see the world not as it is but as it should be. A world where the quarterback becomes best friends with the gay kid, and the girl with the big nose ends up on Broadway. Finding the courage to open up your heart and sing about it. That's what glee club is. And for the longest time I thought that was silly, and now I think it's just about the bravest thing that anyone could do.

[to Finn] You know, I don't really know what's going to happen between us, but I know that you used to be the guy that would make me feel like the most special girl in the whole world, and it doesn't feel that way anymore. Now it just feels sad and confusing. And the worst part is that it doesn't even feel that bad anymore.
