Amber Riley Working on Glee and Dancing With the Stars at the Same Time! (PHOTOS)
We know it’s a hard knock life working in Hollywood. And no one seems to have a better understanding of the time and energy it takes than Amber Riley. The Glee star and current contestant on Season 17 of Dancing With the Stars is now pulling double duty for her two shows — which is insane considering how much preparation goes into them.
Let’s get real, Glee has a reputation for making its stars put in long days, we’re talking 14 plus hours each day of recording songs, dance rehearsals, and filming. Add that on top of the strict four hours of practice she has to put in for each day with DWTS pro partner Derek Hough and you’ve got one busy day!
We know that Amber is back on the Glee set because she posted a photo of herself getting ready, saying, “#glee will always feel like home.” And on top of that, Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina Cohen-Chang) posted a silly photo of Amber looking better than ever on the set. How is Amber doing it all?
While we don’t have an answer to that question, we can tell you that Amber is on the set filming Season 5, Episode 4: “A Katy or a Gaga.” That’s exciting for many reasons. First, it’s American Idolalum Adam Lambert’s first episode on the show (but Adam’s set to be in NYC while Mercedes Jones chills in Lima, Ohio, so they probably won’t interact). Another exciting thing about that episode is that every song will be either a Katy Perry or Lady Gaga song, so viewers are in for some epic diva pop.
