Jessalyn wants to sing ‘Love the Way You Lie’ to her cheating ex! Plus, find out why she wasn’t allowed around Britney Spears on set!

O-M-Glee! The halls of McKinley High might be buzzing about Will Schuester’s (Matthew Morrison) romance with guidance counselor Emma (Jayma Mays), but Will’s ex-wife Teri (Jessalyn Gilsig) still has big plans to win back her man. “There’s nothing [Teri] wouldn’t do to get [Will] back,” Jessalyn told exclusively Aug. 29 at the 2010 Emmy Awards in Hollywood. And Jessalyn even let us in on her dream revenge against Will and Emma. “I want to sing in their faces. … I kind of like that Eminem/Rihanna song, ‘Love the Way You Lie.'” Wow! Gleeks, do you want to hear Teri sing?

Here’s our complete interview with Jessalyn: If I were to tell you two years ago where you’d be now…

Jessalyn Gilsig: I have to stop you. [laughs] I can’t even answer that.

HL: How’d you pick the dress? It’s gorgeous.

JG: It’s like picking shoes, you just know.

HL: Is there someone here who will make your heart stop when you see them?

JG: The silly thing about TV, and this happens to me and I do it too, is like — I just saw one of the judges from Top Chef and the cast of The Office, and I think I know them. I say hi. And I don’t. But you think you know them and so I’ve been saying hi to everyone.

HL: Remind me where we left off with your character last season.

JG: Well, I am left to fend for myself. [Teri is] trying to heal, but it’s hard though. It’s hard when your man leaves you for another woman. She’s having a hard time.

HL: Yes, he left her for another woman, but didn’t she have it coming?

JG: What!? What a terrible thing to say! I don’t see it that way at all. I think she loved him more than anything.

HL: But she faked a pregnancy!

JG: Find me a woman who hasn’t.

[I stare]

[She laughs]

JG: You’re so terrified. No, I know, I know. She’s a tough pill to swallow, but I think deep down she’s a good person.

HL: How hard will she try to get Will back?

JG: There’s nothing she wouldn’t do to get him back. She put a pillow in her shirt for six months. There’s NOTHING she wouldn’t do.

HL: What do you want her to do to get him back?

JG: I wanna sing in their faces. I just wanna take it down. I wanna just be like, ‘Listen. Listen, this is what you get!’

HL: What song would you sing?

JG: I kind of like that Eminem/Rihanna song, “Love the Way You Lie”

HL: You want to take Glee to a whole new level.

JG: This is why they don’t let me around Britney Spears. I get so dark.

HL: So you didn’t see her at all?

JG: They would never. I get really dark.
