Personal Quote:

[In reference to Glee (2009)]: And for those of you who don't watch the show, A. Kill yourself and B. As if... And what I think is most awesome about "Brittana" and shows like "Glee" is that the relationships that we portray aren't just about the ratings. I truly believe that Santana really does love Brittany. See more »
