Barkers rev up your engines. The Freak Show is over, and the incessant quote canonizing can begin.

As another season of American Horror Story closed on Wednesday, the freak fetishist became the freak. (If that meant we got to see Finn Wittrock in his skivvies, then so be it.) But Dandy Mott's downfall was just the beginning of the curiosities delivered by Elsa Mars and her band of outsiders.

Picking up short after Dandy (Wittrock) began his tyrannical rule of the side show, the anthology show's season finale was a veritable a parade of zingers and bon mots worthy of creator Ryan Murphy, starting with …

Glee's Coach Shannon Beiste Will Undergo Sex Reassignment Surgery

Originally posted 01/19/2015 01:30PM

[YOUTUBE "4Aq-lQKj45I"] Glee is once again breaking new ground on broadcast television: Coach Shannon Beiste (Dot-Marie Jones) revealed on Friday's episode that she is transgender and will undergo sex reassignment surgery.

As Coach Beiste explained to Sam (Chord Overstreet) in simple terms, being transgender means "your outsides don't match how you feel you are on the inside. … This isn't about who I want to go to bed with – it's who I want to go to bed as."

Indeed, as Beiste reveals, she is still attracted to men, and that won't change following her reassignment surgery.

American Horror Story's Naomi Grossman: 'Viewers Will be Satiated' by Pepper's Backstory

Originally posted 12/17/2014 05:25PM

Originally touted as a standalone anthology series, all of the gruesome stories in Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story are now connected – and Naomi Grossman's Pepper is the character to tie it all together.

Having first appeared in Asylum, AHS's second season, Grossman was back for its fourth – Freak Show – in an expanded role in the canon. The timeline, set 12 years before the events of Asylum, has Grossman's costar Lily Rabe reprising her role as Sister Mary Eunice in Wednesday night's episode.

PEOPLE chatted with Grossman exclusively to discuss Pepper, her backstory, the American Horror Story universe, a Pepper/Matt Bomer sex scene and how working with the "freaks" has changed her worldview.

Gwyneth Paltrow 'Would Love to Be' on American Horror Story, Says Ryan Murphy

Originally posted 10/06/2014 02:35PM

Pro tip: Gwyneth Paltrow may need to consider growing out a beard or sprouting an extra head if she really wants this.

The actress has her eyes on a role in American Horror Story.

"She would love to be on this show," creator (and new dad!) Ryan Murphy told PEOPLE when asked if he'd ever cast the actress at Sunday's premiere of the FX series's latest season. "We'll see."

The season kicking off Wednesday, American Horror Story: Freak Show, takes viewers to Jupiter, Florida, where a menagerie of nightmare-worthy sideshow characters are trying to keep their business alive. (And if Paltrow can't make it for this installment, might we suggest American Horror Story: Messy Kitchen?)
