‘Glee’ season 4 notes: The latest on Heather Morris, Cory Monteith, Mark Salling

GleeIn lieu of there being any major “Glee” scoop to share, why not present the next best thing in some stories related to the Fox series’ cast members?

Let’s start with what should be official verification of what everyone has suspected for the past week: Heather Morris is pregnant with her first child. You can see in photos published over at the link here that all of the rumors are indeed true, and she is in fact around three months along in her pregnancy. As for how the show is going to get around this (since Brittany S. Pierce is almost surely not going to be pregnant), you can chalk it up to just some well-placed camera tricks here and there for at least the final two episodes of this season. As for season 5, that’s going to be a little bit more difficult since she will be giving birth at some point during the middle of the fall shooting schedule. She will likely miss a good part of the season on maternity leave, though she may return for a few episodes at the very end.

Moving on,¬†Cory Monteith is receiving some more public support from one of his “Glee” pals while he undergoes substance abuse treatment, which will in turn cause him to miss the last two episodes of this season. Speaking to Us Weekly, Mark Salling (Puck) commended his co-star on being brave enough to not only admit to a problem, but do so in a public forum:

“It takes balls . . . to go through that publicly. Period … It takes balls to go through that privately, but to go through it publicly like that — balls.”

Salling knows a thing or two already about confronting problems head-on, as he sought out earlier this year to blast and deny allegations that he got into an altercation with an ex-girlfriend.¬† If you want to read some more “Glee” spoilers about what’s coming up for Lea Michele’s Rachel, you can do so over at the link here.
