She is not dating costar Kevin McHale.
"They were bound to happen, right?" Ushkowitz said about the romance rumors the other night at the Amanda Foundation's Patterns for Paws fundraiser. "We're all best friends. It would be little incestuous [and] a little weird. But we're all so close that we figure anything will come out."
Now for the Spears episode…
"I'm very excited," Ushkowitz said. "She was my idol."
In other words, she'd be happy no matter what Britney hit she gets to sing. "Anything of her old school would be fantastic, like 'Hit Me Baby One More Time,' or 'Oops, I Did it Again,'" she said.
While Spears won't be appearing on the show, Ushkowitz says they haven't been told anything definite regarding reports about Javier Bardem or Katie Holmes making appearances. "We don't believe anything until it's on paper," she said.
Her wish guest these days? "Hugh Jackman," she gushed. "He'd be a good contender for Matt Morrison."
We second that.
