Dot-Marie Jones on Emmy Nom and Co-Star Cory Montieth’s Death

“Extra’s” Renee Bargh spoke with “Glee” star Dot-Marie Jones, who snagged an Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series Emmy nomination for her turn as Coach Beiste.

Jones said it was great news to wake up to. “This my third season on ‘Glee,’ and to be nominated all three season just really says a lot about the writers and their belief in me. I’m very proud of it.”

The actress also admitted the news was bittersweet after the death of her co-star, Cory Monteith. “It’s a wonderful end to a very crappy week.”

Becoming emotional, Jones opened up about her relationship with Cory. “It’s tough. He was a hell of a guy and I’ll miss him every day… He was present, he was honest, he listened. I especially enjoyed this last season, in which I had days where it was just Cory and me. I will treasure those forever.”
