Word is that Kristin Chenoweth won't be back for season three of Glee. Sad face!

Creator Ryan Murphy says he's putting a ban (of sorts) on guest stars and tribute episodes -- something the show took a great deal of criticism for this past season. Kristin (who guested on another FOX show this week as a judge on So You Think You Can Dance) says she understands the decision, but that the news is a "bummer."  

"I think he's trying to get his show back," Kristin tells Zap2it. "I think he's trying to really concentrate on his characters. I actually understand that. I get it. People want to see those characters."

Even so, she's sad to see her character go. "Of course it's a bummer for me because I love April Rhodes," she adds. "But he needs to get his show back, so I get why he's doing that."

It's not like the pint-size performer has a ton of time to do further guest spots, anyway. She has her first country album, Some Lessons Learned, coming out this September, plus a new ABC show called Good Christian Belles that will air this fall.

    WHAT THE F***!! I'M NOT EVEN GONNA ABBREVIATE THAT!! I know he was gonna limit the guest stars but seriously I heard he meant NEW guest stars. Anyways why would he bring back Idina then be all NO CHENO? He said that SHE is the one that is his muse. Anyways, she's the only woman guest star (if I remember correctly) to be nominated for an EMMY! for the role. He better be lyin'… just like the time he said she'd be strippin'… LIES!!

    So Zap2it is lying about what Kristin said. Doubt it. Fact is, he did get a storm of smack talk over too many casting stunts etc. So he probably is dropping that stuff

    I am pretty sure he means NEW guest not those reoccurring guest. Plus Ryan lies. half the stuff was going to happen last summer never did.
