On ‘The Fosters’ Set: Teri Polo Talks Monte, Rosie’s Return and Helping Her Ex

Stef (Teri Polo, l) and Lena (Sherri Saum) have a quiet moment together on 'The Fosters.' (ABC Family)

“Not happy.”

That’s what Teri Polo told me last week from the set of ABC Family’s The Fosters when I asked how her character, Stef, reacts to having Monte in the picture in this week’s episode. As we all know, Monte, who works with Lena (Sherri Saum) stole a kiss from Lena in the season finale, which had fans gasping and concerned about the future of Stef and Lena.

Despite Monte's presence in Monday's episode, Polo was quick to say her character doesn't have a big reason to be concerned about her marriage and Polo and Saum have said multiple times that whatever Stef and Lena go through they'll always stick together. But, still, can we really trust Monte?

Also, Polo and I talked about the upcoming return of Rosie O’Donnell as Rita as well as how Stef may be there for her  ex, Mike (Danny Nucci), who appears to be taking steps to take in his own foster kid, A.J. (played by guest star Tom Williamson).

In addition to her work on the popular series, the ever-busy Polo found time to work on a TV movie, Love Again, which premieres tonight on Hallmark at 9 p.m.. In the film, Polo plays Chloe Baker, who, along with her husband (played by “One Tree Hill” alum Paul Johansson), hides her marital woes from her soon-to-be-married daughter only to find that maybe her marriage is worth saving after all.

Let’s see what Polo had to say about what’s to come on “The Fosters”:
