Shocker Glee Tweet: Why Are Sam And Brittany Dressed In Wedding Outfits?

Tweet With Sam And Heather In Wedding Gear

Can anyone tell us what this is about? Ryan Murphy, the creator of Glee, posted this tweet, “The Wedding Of The Year” along with the photograph you see of Brittany (Heather Morris) and Sam (Chord Overstreet) above. Dressed suspiciously like a bride and groom. So much pretty in this picture, but that’s not the point! Wasn’t this supposed to be Rachel (Lea Michele) and Finn’s (Cory Monteith) wedding? At least that’s what we think was going to happen. This could also be a fake-out, though. Brittany and Sam could very well be a bridesmaid and groomsman. Or this could also be a fantasy sequence. Because Ryan would never give away such a huge plot twist before the actual episode. Because these two are a very, very unlikely couple and there’s no chance in hell that they would get married. Are we right or are we right? Brittany and Santana have broken up (boo!) but we don’t think they’d make a character ricochet so wildly. We also have a feeling that there are a lot of you that feel pretty strongly about this and probably have a lot of other theories about this photograph. We’re all out, so write in let us know what you think, or if you know something we don’t!

From Friends‘ Spud-nik To PLL’s Vampy Adam Lambert: TV’s Best Halloween Costumes

Our favorite costumes from the Halloween episodes of Friends, Community, Pretty Little Liars and Glee

Halloween means candy corn, haunted houses, and your dad wearing that musty vampire outfit yet again. But it also means Halloween specials on TV! Throughout the years, the small screen has captured the fun of dressing up for the holidays. It’s a time for our favorite characters to get creative and just a tad inappropriate as they sport costumes from the topical, the slutty, or other clever ideas that perfectly reflect their own personalities. Here’s a list of some of our favorite Halloween costumes from TV over the years that may give you some inspiration of what to do…and what not to do.

Best Mystery Costume – The Slutty Pumpkin (How I Met Your Mother): It was that crisp, autumnal night on Halloween when Ted Mosby thought he met the love of his life…in a costume that has become the show’s famed “Slutty Pumpkin.” Though her face was veiled, this mystery woman became the object of Ted’s harvest-filled fantasies. Many years later, we discovered that the woman was none other than Katie Holmes! Even though the costume doesn’t have much originality, we give them props for mocking the “slutty fill-in-the-blank” outfit.

Most Cerebral Costume – “Spud”-nik (Friends): Oh Ross, your combination of awkward, intellectual will always be so endearing to us. I love this costume because it totally caters to the Halloween nerd in me (a.k.a. my 8th grade self dressing up in all black with envelopes pinned all over me – black mail). Unfortunately, Ross’ costume doesn’t translate well, and let’s just say that bathroom jokes ensue. Didn’t anyone ever tell him that if you have to explain the costume, it doesn’t work?

So Gangsta Costume – T-Pain (Parks and Recreation): Trick or treat yo self! The T-Pain costume works so well for Tom Haverford, who loves his silk pajamas, his favorite club, The Snake Pit, and jammin’ to some Usher. His rendition of “I’m In Love With a Stripper” is pretty priceless. Who knows, maybe gangsta’s paradise is in Pawnee, Indiana.

Best Group Costume – Rock Horror Picture Show (Glee): Though I had stopped watching Glee by the time this episode aired, I knew I had to tune in for any tribute to cult hit Rocky Horror Picture Show. It’s hard to pick which is the best costume, since they all mimic the eccentric characters so well. Ahem, Brittany and her tap dancing as Columbia? But I would say the best would go to Kurt, whose all out ode to Riff Raff costume deserves recognition.

The Indifferent Costume – Three-Hole Punched Jim (The Office): This costume is subtle, clever and, over the years, it seems to have become a “staple” costume (see what I did there?). This is for the guy who wants to go to the costume party, but is definitely too cool to go all out. Anyway, we love Jim for his dry humor, and this costume exhibits that in the best way possible.

Best Guest Star Costume- Adam Lambert (Pretty Little Liars): Sorry, Aria Montgomery, but we already have a flapper on this list, so our fave PLL costume goes to this week’s guest star, Adam Lambert. Lambert can pull off anything, and now he can check off glam vampire from his list. His performance of his singles “Cuckoo” and “Trespassing” on the “A” train are surely worth sinking your teeth into.

No Words… – Mother Teresa (Modern Family): In season two’s Halloween episode, Haley comes downstairs repeatedly in inappropriate costumes (slutty cat, slutty nurse, you name it) only to be reprimanded by her mother to change into something more appropriate. Finally Haley arrives in a skin-tight mini-dress and blue and white veil, saying, “Mom, you cannot have a problem with this. I’m Mother Teresa.” Haley is so clueless and off-color here, which is why we think it’s so great. It’s another joke that clearly plays with Tina Fey’s famous Mean Girls line, “Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.” Very true, Ms. Fey. Very true.

Best Glammed-Up Look – Flapper (Gossip Girl): Blair Waldorf would never show up to a party without making a grand entrance, and this is no exception. Blair becomes the ultimate flapper girl in this beautiful getup and, of course, everything is impeccable from her perfectly curled hair to her necklaces. Blair knows she would fit right into Gatsby’s raucous roaring ’20s parties. XOXO.

The Complete Transformation – Sally Jessy Raphael (Sabrina The Teenage Witch): Okay, we’re getting a bit nostalgic here, but how can we talk Halloween without Sabrina the Teenage Witch? Sabrina tells her aunt she’s going to school as Sally Jessy Raphael and dons some big red plastic rimmed glasses. Her aunts are dismayed at Sabrina’s lack of creativity, since Halloween is by far their favorite holiday. Hilda says, “That is the lamest costume I’ve ever seen,” and transforms her into the real Sally Jessy Raphael. Talk about trying to stay in character…

The Un-P.C. Costume – Peggy Flemming (Community): Spanish teacher turned student Senor Chang, played hilariously by Ken Jeong, arrives at Greendale sporting a turquoise leotard, a wig, ice skates and a medal. When Chang asks Jeff and Brita who he is for Halloween, they immediately guess Asian-American ice skaters Kristi Yamaguchi and Michelle Kwan because, yes, he’s Asian too. His actual costume? 1968 skating Olympian Peggy Flemming. Chang responds, “Just been proven racist by the racist prover.” Ouch, Jeff.

Downton Disaster? Our Theories On Dan Stevens’ Possible Departure Quote

Dan Stevens hasn't signed on for season 4 of Downton Abbey

Fetch the smelling salts, O’Brien! This quote from Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens in yesterday’s Daily Mail is bound to bring on fainting spells everywhere: “I don’t know if I will be returning to Downton.” NO! Not Matthew Crawley!

But hold on a second. Let’s interpret this statement for a minute. First of all, this is in context of Stevens making his Broadway debut in The Heiress, opposite Jessica Chastain, and clearly falling in love with New York City. “New York for me is going to be one big adventure. I will be taking the whole family out and we will be there for six months.” So he could just be excited about this chapter in his life, and hedging his bets about what Julian Fellowes has in store for his character in the fourth and final season of the hit British series. After all, as we’ve just had spoiled for us, another major character has already croaked in season three.

Or, a more cynical person might point out, Stevens could be acting all Hollywood and stalling to get a better contract for season four, especially now that everyone wants to cast him in everything. (Please, everyone, cast him in everything.) If the powers that be have any sense, they’ll give him what he wants. Just hand over that whole estate — he went to war for you people.

Dan Stevens and Michelle Dockery

Option three (trying not to panic): He knows his character won’t make it. Damn it, Fellowes. We knew you shouldn’t have brought together Matthew and Mary in the middle of the series. Everyone knows that once the main will-they-or-won’t-they couple finally does, the audience collectively experiences character bed death. I just made that phrase up, but it’s true, right? This is why everyone had to break up on Glee; why people always die on Grey’s Anatomy; why Damon and Elena still aren’t together on Vampire Diaries; why Bella got instantly pregnant in Breaking Dawn … you get the point.

But we have faith in team Downton. There’s at least ONE more season of British class angst to be squeezed out of the Crawleys. And then we get to see the prequel! Fingers and toes ever so properly crossed.
