Amber Riley of 'Glee' on 'Access Hollywood Live'We've already heard that Chris Colfer (Kurt), Lea Michele (Rachel), and Cory Monteith (Finn) are leaving 'Glee' after the third season. But what about Amber Riley, who plays powerhouse singer Mercedes Jones? On 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) Thursday, Riley addressed the future of the cast, rumors of a possible spin-off, and assured Billy Bush she will not be stripping for season three.

Riley said her departing co-stars are fine with the situation, and looking forward to filming season three. She also hinted at her own 'Glee' future. "It's been a roller coaster ride," she said. "It's been absolutely amazing, but, I mean, I don't want to be a 30-year-old high school student, either. And 'Glee' was just a great catapult for us. Nobody knew who we were and we'll always be thankful for it. It's just been an amazing blessing."

Bush and Kit Hoover pressed Riley for all sorts of details, asking about the rumors of a spin-off with Kurt and Rachel moving to New York. Riley said there are always so many 'Glee' rumors, it's even impossible for her know what's true. Bush pressed Riley, saying she must really know. "I actually don't," said Riley. "I haven't even had a script for the next season. So I don't know anything."

That made Bush pause for a moment before asking, "Did you have to strip for the last season?" "Script," Billy. "Script." Try to focus.
