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.

    Glee SHOCKER: Chris Colfer Departs Series

    Chris Colfer has been let go from Glee. The actor made this shocking announcement himself via Twitter.


    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 :)
