It was kind of heartwarming when Glee fans first heard that some former McKinley High graduates would be reuniting for the Cory Monteith tribute episode. I mean, how could they not, right? Considering Cory was such a staple on the hit Fox show, it just feels natural that some of his character Finn's best friends would get back together to remember their fallen classmate. It was a little alarming, however, when news spread that Dianna Agron and Heather Morris would not be in the episode.
At first rumor was that Dianna was busy working on another project and that's why she couldn't make it to filming in Los Angeles. But now, Wetpaint is reporting that Glee's Quinn wasn't asked back for the tribute. And you'll never guess the reason why ...
According to Wetpaint, both Ryan Murphy and Lea Michele "intensely dislike Dianna and have both worked to marginalize her as much as possible." Not only that, but allegedly neither the show's creator nor its lead star ever saw Dianna as a team player. The reason they didn't invite her back? They didn't want her to "share the glory for this very special episode."
Whoa. That's harsh. I don't know, guys. Something tells me that this may all be a bit of he said/she said gossip. It's been very clear how supportive the entire Glee family has been to one another since Cory's unfortunate passing. To leave Dianna out of something like this, it just doesn't seem to make sense ... for me anyway.
Regardless, it would have definitely made sense to throw Dianna's character Quinn into this episode considering how close of a relationship she had with Finn on the show. With that said, this whole Dianna and Lea not getting along bit would make for a good reason as to why she's not there. I just hope that outside of the petty cast problems, Dianna was able to find the support she needs to grieve the loss of her close friend.
Do you believe this is the reason Dianna wasn't asked back?
