'Glee' stars spend romantic weekend together
Smash star Megan Hilty is still swooning about her passionate lip lock with Glee’s hunky Cory Monteith. At Saturday’s GLAAD awards, the actress, 30, bid $5,000 for the kiss — and says it was worth every penny.

“It was a last minute decision. The guy who originally bid backed down — and I’m pretty much up for anything,” Hilty told Celebuzz Monday night at MCC Theater’s annual Miscast gala in New York.

When asked if she had spoke to Cory’s rumored girlfriend Lea Michele about the kiss, Megan laughed:

“It was for a good cause. I hope Lea isn’t jealous… She and I are friends and go way back.”

Megan, who currently stars on Smash as the seasoned triple-threat Ivy Lynn, is busy wrapping up the season, admitting she’s excited to have Nick Jonas and Bernadette Peters return for the season finale.

“Without giving much away, Ivy does some really unexpected things… Also, there are some very beautiful moments between Ivy and Karen (Katharine McPhee) that will make for an interesting dynamic in their relationship,” she said.

Off screen, Megan and Nick, 19, made headlines when they were spotted out in NYC grabbing a late night bite. When asked specifically about the dating rumors, Megan said, “He’s great.. we’re just good friends.”
