It's hard enough to keep track of all the love quadrangles on Glee, but when you consider its stars' real-life romances, it gets harder than a two-sided jigsaw puzzle.
But way more fun!
In case you haven't been keeping track, both Cory Monteith and Mark Salling have both been rumored to have a showmance with Lea Michele, kinda like their Finn-Puck-Rachel triangle. But then again, there's also tell of Salling sidling up to Hills hottie Audrina Patridge and Broadway buzz that Lea's actually engaged to her Spring Awakening costar.
Alas, the air is clear! Well, sort of. We just caught up with the boys and they told us...
Cory is still flying solo.
"Me and Lea are just friends," he told us at the launch of Marshalls and T.J. Maxx's Carol-oke program in Bryant Park today. "We've become really good friends as we shot the show, but we're not dating. I'm single."
He may be going gray—no joke!—but line up, ladies!
As for Lea and her former stage partner, Cory said they're not engaged and laughed at the thought (we're guessing this is what caused the chuckle). Jonathan Groff will be guest starring on the show during the spring episodes, however, which start in April.
Mark was a bit more elusive when questioned about his romantic leads of the moment (ahem, Audrina).
"You know, I'm just hanging out," he said, blushing and looking away uncomfortably. "What's my stock answer for that? Lemme think. I forgot."
But then he remembered there was one thing the gossip-loving world should know.
"Me and Cory are definitely together," he joked.
Their costar Amber Riley claims she has no time for romance.
"I have no love life off-set," she declared. "My love life is with Sealy Posturepedic, my bed!"
Wonder if they met while filming "Jump!"...
You can see Rachel and Finn in our TV Couples We Love gallery!
