Sometimes it seems like Glee news travels faster than Brittany moves from man to man. Still, we attempt to keep up and informed. Here's the latest from the land of Glee:

Never fear, ladies. Mark Salling is still on Glee: Zap2It was skeptical of the rumor that Salling's absence from last night's "Duets" episode meant he was in a contract battle with the show (as were we!) and found out the truth: "We're assured that Salling didn't appear in the episode for creative reasons, not contractual trouble. Puck's short absence simply makes room for Sam (Chord Overstreet) to find his place in the "Glee" club -- and to sing his way into the heart of Puck's ex, Quinn." That's what we thought! But did they really need to turn Puck from a bully to a full-fledged criminal to do it? Stealing an ATM is serious, even for a bad boy.

Chord Overstreet and Rumer Willis are dating, apparently: And by "dating," I mean People saw them kissing at a party. What do you think of this pairing? (Or, like me, are you more interested in his character's fictional pairing with Quinn?)

Were you offended by last night's "sweet lady kisses"? Everyone seems to be questioning whether the Brittany and Santana make out session (and mention of "scissoring") went too far, but no one has really come out and said they were offended. In my opinion, the whole scene came off as a silly distraction, not a relationship or lifestyle choice ... which is probably most offensive thing about it. To quote Santana: "I'm not making out with you because I'm in love with you and want to sing about making lady babies." She's just there because Puck's in the clink and she "needs something warm beneath [her]." Is Santana just being her normal, heartless self, or could that be seen as an anti-lesbian sentiment? Whatever the case, it's still pretty amazing that the scene made it to primetime.

Jessalyn Gilsig Getting Divorced: People reports that the actress who plays Terri Schuester is separating from her husband Bobby Salomon after almost six years of marriage. They have a four-year-old daughter, Penelope, together.

For Eric Stoltz, "Happy Days Are Here Again":
The Internet has been abuzz the last couple days about the revelation that respected actor Eric Stoltz filmed Back to the Future in the Marty McFly role for five whole weeks before he was replaced by Michael J. Fox. That's probably not a bummer that the Caprica star wanted to relive after more than 20 years, but at least he directed a killer episode of Glee last night. Now leave the poor guy alone about the past!

Coming Up on Glee (Maybe):

And finally, in two weeks: It's the "Rocky Horror Glee Show."
