Glee star Dot-Marie Jones, who plays Coach Beiste on the show, is setting the record straight about co-creator Ryan Murphy's alleged feud with cast members.
When asked whether or not she felt as though she was being overworked, as posited in the new issue of US Weekly, Jones said in an interview with Valentine on 104.3 MY FM, "We have jobs. I'm paying my bills. You know what, I'll work twenty hours a day if they let me." Jones added that although her fellow cast members have expressed being exhausted on the set, they haven't expressed any negative feelings about it.
"I've heard them say they're tired but never in a mean, or like they're complaining, way," she elaborated. "Those kids work like 16-18 hour days. I'm sure they're tired."
The 47-year-old actress then touched directly upon the rumors about an on-set feud. "I read about how they're all mad at Ryan and stuff, and I haven't seen that at all," Jones asserted.
