Spoiler Alert | Here Come The Brides – First Look At Glee’s Brittana Wedding (Tissues Ready)

Wedding bells are ringing on Glee and spoiler alert: there’s a pantsuit involved. Glee has released these teasing pictures from the much anticipated Brittany and Santana’s wedding episode, A Wedding.

We have all been getting very excited about the event, since Santana (Naya Rivera) and Brittany (Heather Morris) got engaged on Glee a few week ago, and the new episode looks to be very pleasing.

So Did Naya Rivera Come Out As Bisexual or Not?

If you spent any amount of time in Glee’s bubble of rabid Tumblr fans circa 2011 then you would have been treated to plenty of speculation about Naya Rivera’s sexuality. It has often been suggested that the actress, who plays lesbian Santana Lopez on the cult TV series, isn’t just a straight ally but is a member of the queer community herself.

There were once suggestions that she was secretly dating her Glee co-star Heather Morris (who plays Santana’s fiancée Brittany). While it may have been a case of overexcited fans with overzealous imaginations, they were backed up by Naya’s own Facebook posts that hinted that they were together, the famous kiss from the Glee tour and the fact that the two actresses just look adorable together.

But after those rumours fizzled out and Naya dated men – including rapper Big Sean and her recent marriage to actor Ryan Dorsey – could Naya have been queer after all? During a recent appearance on daytime talk show The View, the Glee actress possibly came out as bisexual.


On the episode of The View that aired on the 14th of January, out, gay presenter Rosie O’Donnell explained that “new research found that women who are bisexual are more likely to suffer mental health problems than lesbians”. To which Naya replied “No wonder, Rosie! No wonder I’m crazy, this just solves it all”.

While it could have been a case of Naya just wanting to chime in with her two cents on the state of female mental health, the fact that Naya pointed out her own mental health issues after the study (and Rosie’s words) directly referred to the mental health problems of bisexual women seems to suggest that Naya herself is bisexual.

Cynics have suggested that it may just be a ploy from the actress to drum up attention. During another appearance on The View Naya also made the outlandish claim that “ethnics” do not shower as often as white people, comparing her own shower habits to her husband’s, saying that she only showers a few times a week but he showers several times a day.

Of course she may have just accidentally put her foot in it (she has since apologised and explained that her comments were a joke) but as it got so many people talking about her in the last week, many people believe that she is just doing it for attention.

Attention seeking or not, many Glee fans are positively giddy at the prospect that the actress behind one of their favourite queer TV ladies may be queer in real life too. There hasn’t been a confirmation or a denial from Naya or her representatives just yet though, but we’ll keep you posted.



Our First TV ‘Awww’ Moment of 2015 as Glee’s Brittany and Santana Get Engaged

Once hailed as a bastion of queer television characters for the way that Kurt Hummel was unapologetic in his sexuality in a time where few shows put LGBT characters as the leads, Glee was actually notorious for treating its queer female characters poorly.

For example, Brittany and Santana (also known as Brittana) came about because of a throwaway line about the two girls sleeping together in season one and it was pressure from fans that forced Glee to make them an official item in season two.


Then, there was the fact that Brittany and Santana didn’t get to kiss until season three, by which time couples like Kurt and Blaine, and Finn and Rachel had kissed each other plenty.

In contrast, during Glee’s famous body swap episode actors Kevin McHale and Amber Riley got to kiss each other (their characters had body swapped with Brittany and Santana), while Brittany and Santana (as played by two women) didn’t get to kiss for some episodes later.

Furthermore, there have been throwaway lines about lesbians not wanting to date bisexual women, a poorly handled Brittana break up (when Santana couldn’t do a long distance relationship) and dialogue that ridiculed Glee’s queer female fandom.

But as the show enters its sixth and final season, could the musical dramedy finally be ready to make amends? It appears so, as season six of Glee looks to be a bit of a throwback to all of the characters and relationships we loved long ago.

Puck and Quinn are back together, Kurt is still pining after Blaine (despite Blaine dating Karofsky), and Brittany and Santana are loved up and singing adorable duets in the school’s choir room as though they didn’t graduate ages ago.

Following their latest mashup of Alanis Morissette’s “Hand In My Pocket” and Carole King’s “I Feel The Earth Move” it all gets a bit emotional. Santana gets down on one knee and proposes.

After an earlier scene in the episode where Brittany tells Santana that “I will love you until infinity,” and the two make plans to live in New York together, Santana proposes simply to which Brittany says yes.

However, will Glee make good on its same-sex marriage promises? Although Brittany and Santana are a bit young to be getting engaged, Santana’s not fussed and she proceeds to keep Kurt an ear lashing when he brings up this very point.

Furthermore, back in November Naya Rivera who plays Santana on the show shared this cheeky snap of a veil on Instagram, suggesting that not only is Glee quite ahead with their filming but that we will most definitely be seeing Santana in a wedding dress by the end of the season.

We’ll keep you posted once we have more on the upcoming nuptials.
