New Love Interest For Terri...and It's Not Finn!

No sirree, as Jessalyn Gilsig (Terri) puts it herself, "They're children!" So she's saying her rumored new love interest in Glee is NOT going to be a student (sorry, Puck). I'm with Zap2It's Marisa Roffman - I'm thinking a rebound romance with Ken (Patrick Gallagher) would be hilarious. But as we learned today from The Ausiello Files, it is most definitely not Finn, although co-creator Ryan Murphy does confirm that he and former Mrs. Schue will have a ("strictly platonic") cool relationship coming up:

“Finn gets a job at Sheets & Things,” explains Murphy of the chain store where Will’s soon-to-be ex-wife works. “He is very down on himself, and Terri realizes that she was not very supportive of her husband and she sees a lot of him in Finn.

“She met Will at 16,” he reminds us, “so she sees a way to redemption…a way to redo that relationship in a positive way [by acting] almost as Finn’s guardian angel, his fairy godmother. She gives him proper moral advice. I liked seeing Jessalyn [Gilsig] and Cory [Monteith] work together.”

So much so that Murphy says the story will “will carry into season 2.” A romance, however, is not in the cards. “I don’t want to do that,” he says. “And I don’t think our audience would go for that. We just want to keep it a friendship.”

Speaking of Zap2It...here's that interview with Jessalyn Gilsig, about what's coming up for crazy Terri. Oh, yes, she'll be there. Even if she's not in the script, heh-heh:
