The news that Ryan Murphy is planning to eliminate guest stars on the next season of “Glee” came as a surprise to Kristin Chenoweth.

“No guest stars?” she pondered. “I think he’s trying to get his show back,” she told reporters last night following her guest judging stint on “So You Think You Can Dance.”  “I think he’s trying to really trying to concentrate on his characters that he created so geniusly.”

But is she upset, considering her own numerous “Glee” guest appearances? “No. I’m actually happy because I want the show to always be at the top. So he has to do what he has to do. I get that. I actually understand that. People want to see those characters. Of course it’s a bummer for me because I love [my character] April Rhodes. But he needs to get his show back so I get why he’s doing that.”

Meanwhile, Chenoweth is busy with two projects on the horizon: her debut country record, “Some Lessons Learned,” due in September, and a new show for ABC called “Good Christian Bells” (formerly titled “Good Christian B–ches”) set to premiere this fall.

Chenoweth says she will get to sing and dance in the new show “as long as [my character] Carlene Cockburn feels like giving her self a solo in church or it feels right I’m sure she’ll make an appearance with her singing.”

As for what song she might belt out first? “It’s a big secret.”
