I have a very low tolerance for nice. I may seem really cool and loving for a week or two, but then my body rejects it like a virus.
—Kitty Wilde, Previously Unaired Christmas
Kitty is introduced as a mean popular girl who is disliked by almost everyone. Kitty manipulates and bullies Marley Rose making her believe that she has a weight problem, while pretending to be her friend. Because of this manipulation, Marley ends up developing an eating disorder, which comes to breaking point in Thanksgiving, when she faints at Sectionals. Throughout the season, Kitty slowly becomes more open and friendly, apologizing to Marley and becoming an active member of the Glee Club. She also becomes good friends with Unique Adams throughout her time in the glee club.
In Season Five, she begins a relationship with Artie in Love, Love, Love, despite her initial concerns about going public. Kitty supports Tina after she is Carrie'd in Tina in the Sky with Diamonds, despite her alliance with the Cheerios. During this season, her harshness towards the rest of the members of the club is greatly lessened.
After the glee club was disbanded, she consequently broke up with Artie. In Season Six, it is seen that she is still a Cheerio and the only one out of the latest members of the glee club who was never transferred to another school. Her old behaviour returns since she felt she was mistreated by Artie and the rest of the original group. In The Hurt Locker, Part Two, she rejoins New Directions and she's been shown to have a nicer attitude to Rachel and the new additions to the club similar to how she was before the disbandment. In Dreams Come True, after winning the Nationals with the New Directions, she graduated from McKinley and living a happy life, being a kind person and keeps in touch with her old friends.
She was a recurring character in Season Four, promoted to the main cast in Season Five before being demoted as a recurring character again in Season Six. She is portrayed by actress, singer and dancer Becca Tobin.
The New Rachel
Kitty is the new head cheerleader, and has a very arrogant and bossy personality. She is described by Sue as "a young Quinn Fabray," but "not pregnant, manic depressive, or in and out of a wheelchair." At first, she is a "friend" of New Directions, because they are popular. During lunch with the Glee Club, she makes a very racist comment, stating that she initially wanted a popularity homecoming float with all white people, but now suggests having all white chrysanthemums. Later, she is seen at the Lima Bean where she tells Kurt that her iced latte is too cold. She makes fun of Marley's mom and Marley gets mad and reveals that she is the daughter of the new cook. At last, when the Glee Club comes to ask forgiveness from Marley for insulting both Marley and her mother, she says to the Glee Club members that their 'popularity invitation' was not extended to both Marley and Unique. Blaine says because of that, they're no longer part of their crew, and therefore her friends throw slushies at Marley and Unique.
During the performance of Gimme More, Kitty notices that Brittany was lip-syncing and she yells it out to everyone else. Later in the episode, when Marley was in the hallway with Jake, she interrupts their conversation and tells Marley that they're dating. In grief, Marley gives her the jacket (that Kitty says looks better on her) Jake gave her earlier and she leaves in tears, watching Kitty and Jake walk off together.
Kitty invites Marley to the Left Behind Club, in order to prepare for the apocalypse. In the meeting at Breadstix, Kitty begins to talk about the return of Jesus and the rapture and describes the true believers being lifted up to heaven. To demonstrate this she stages a fake rapture that goes too far for Tina's assistant, Dottie Kazatori, leaving her traumatized. Later in the episode, she overhears another conversation between Jake and Marley, and then starts throwing insults about her and her mother's weight. When Jake tells her to ease up or he'll break up with her, Kitty warns that she's like a bad Carrie Underwood song once she gets going. Jake then ends his relationship with Kitty. Kitty then cites it as Marley's fault and warns them both that she will hurt them.
Kitty is first seen talking to Jake, who she notices seems to him being jealous because of the innocent flirting between Marley and Ryder. She then interrupts the conversation between Marley and Ryder saying that she is also auditioning for Sandy for the school musical Grease. She then makes crude remarks to Marley about her mom and Marley herself saying that she paints herself as the nice girl, but really is a scheming little kiss-ass, which makes Marley run in tears and Ryder calling her a bitch. When she signs her name on the sign up sheet, Jake asks her to sign him up as well, saying that he needs to be there to keep her from killing Marley. But Kitty sees this as an attempt to stop Marley from fornicating Ryder. After that, Kitty and Jake audition by performing Everybody Talks. As part of the call backs for the leads, her, Jake, Marley, and Ryder perform Born to Hand Jive with the New Directions, Mike, and Mercedes. When the cast list goes up, it is revealed that Marley got the lead of Sandy and she received role of Patty Simcox leaving her very much dissatisfied. It is also revealed in this episode that her full name is Kitty Wilde.
Kitty is first seen going to her fitting where she calls on Tina. Sugar questions why she is there thinking that she quit because her part was too small, but Kitty says that "there are no small parts, just fat actresses," making a reference to Marley. She then points out Marley's weight gain, which Marley tries to explain that she's not eating any differently. It is later revealed that Kitty sabotaged the costume to make it smaller. To get to know the others better, she invites Marley, Tina, Brittany, Unique, and Sugar to a sleepover in her house. At the sleepover, she sees that Marley is looking for more healthy things to eat, so she takes her to the bathroom where she shows her how to throw up. At first Marley believes it to be gross, but Kitty says she thinks it's more gross having a tummy exploding because she didn't binge or purge. While Marley's in the bathroom, Kitty makes fun of Marley by singing Look At Me I'm Sandra Dee. Later, in the backstage of the Grease play, she reminds Marley about the "two fingers" (the ones that she has to put in her mouth in order to vomit) saying that she can lose two inches by curtain. Before the final number, Kitty says that a merciless theatre stage critic Fletcher Mantini is in the audience to both Marley and Ryder. Those words have an effect on Marley. She is then seen as Patty Simcox in the performance of You're the One That I Want.
Kitty first appears when Finn introduces her and Ryder to the glee club. Finn explains that she joined because she was amazing in the school's play, Grease. Finn notices the apparent animosity between Kitty and Marley, and so pairs them up to perform their superhero duet. Later, Kitty goes to Marley's locker, giving her the song that she has chosen for them to sing, a song she says will show off her vocal bombasity while highlighting Marley's mousy softness. Later during the week Marley confides to her that she can't perform the duet because she can't perform wearing a costume of clingy fabric. Kitty then reminds her of the 'finger sisters' and asks if she is still vomiting. Marley reveals that she has been doing it all week. Kitty then says if Marley doesn't feel comfortable, she will cancel the duet. As they hug, Kitty shows a conniving smile indicating that she's only pretending to be Marley's friend. Before their performance, Kitty sees that Marley is uncomfortable in her costume. Marley reveals that her alter ego is 'Wallflower' because that is the way she saw herself. Kitty then says that Marley looks hot and that she will be buying Marley's clothes from now on. For a final boost of confidence, Kitty says that she is no longer 'Wallflower' but instead 'Woman Fierce,' and that they are going to kill their song. They sing Holding Out for a Hero together for the assignment, and it seems that everyone likes the performance. Kitty overhears that Ryder has to reschedule his date with Marley, and so tries to convince her that Ryder didn't have to cancel, but instead is not interested in her. She says that if Marley wants to fight for Ryder's attention she needs to lose weight, fast. Unexpectedly Marley asks Jake out, leaving Kitty shocked. At last, Kitty is seen very friendly with Marley in Some Nights, but when Marley turns around Kitty rolls her eyes.
After introducing some Glee club alumni to the New Directions, Finn announces that Quinn will mentor her in order to win Sectionals, Kitty runs happily and faster to hug Quinn, commenting that they're so alike. Later, when Quinn and Kitty talk alone she tells that she would have thrown such a hissy if Finn didn't pair them together, because Kitty idolizes Quinn. She even confesses that she asks herself "What would Quinn Fabray do?." When Jake and Marley walk past, Kitty lies to Quinn that Jake is distracting Marley to win, pressuring Marley to have sex with him. Later, Quinn gives some notes about how to win the competition, and after that Kitty gives her a hug and thanks her.

In a deleted scene, Marley finds Kitty crying in the bathroom because of New Directions' loss at Sectionals, though she claims it is because she has allergies. Kitty admits that she has been awful to Marley and is confused as to why Marley is still being nice to her; Marley responds that she thinks that Kitty's meanness is just because she's scared. Marley then invites Kitty to come and discuss song choices for their last performance, but Kitty sharply rebuffs her.

She is confronted some time later by Puck, who warns her off, while also admitting how hard it is to resist a Puckerman male. Kitty reveals that she doesn't actually like Jake: "I'm a mean, hot bitch that likes to get what she wants," she explains, pointing out that to leave Jake alone, she'll need another boy as her date to the dance, in the form of Puck himself.

Artie is surprised to see Kitty because he thought that Sue made all the New Directions from the previous year transfer out of McKinley and then states that the New Directions needs her back. Kitty rejects his offer straight away, she tells him "You really think I'm going to join your stupid glee club after the way you treated all of us? The way you treated me when you went away to college?" she then tells him the reason why Sue didn't make her transfer was because she's smart enough to recognize a star player when she sees one. She then adds that Rachel is not a star player because she didn't even know any of the Sophomores names when the Alumni came back in 100, Brittany then adds that she knows her name is Quinn which makes Kitty role her eyes at her. Santana then asks her if she wants to be a star, and Kitty tells her that's rich coming from graduates that are pathetically stuffed in their Cheerios uniform again. Madison and Mason then interrupt asking if 2 people can try out together, Kitty is not surprised by this and mutters "Of course the incest twins want in," she then turns to the Cheerios wanting to leave because they have to explain to Madison and Mason why Flowers in The Attic is not a love story to aspire to and then walks away with the rest of the Cheerios.
Kitty herself does not appear in this episode, but she is mentioned when Becky wrongly calls Quinn by her name. She also appears briefly in a flashback during Will You Love Me Tomorrow/Head Over Feet, behind Blaine.
We first see Kitty walking down the halls of McKinley on her way to her classroom where she is approached and followed by Rachel who begins to tell her a lot about herself. Kitty replies to her asking if she is hitting on her which would be wrong because "the world is kind of rooting for you and Quinn Fabray". Rachel tells her that who she is important to her to which Kitty susses out that Rachel is just trying to get her back into New Directions. Rachel admits it and Kitty rejects the offer straight away and tells her that she has a reputation for being a selfish person and the only reason she joined Glee Club in the first place was because even though she knew it was going to hurt her reputation it was being led by Will who she described as a kind man committed to teaching and that there were a bunch of kids in there who would have her back when things got hairy. She walks out the classroom to where Rachel followed her again and told her that she knows she loves to perform, Kitty admits she did love it. Kitty begins to cry and tells Rachel that she misses the feeling of performing and she hates the fact her old friends abandoned her and the only reason she was still there was because Sue needed her for the cheerios but she knows exactly what Rachel is like and she doesn't want to join when she knows it will all be over again in a couple of weeks.
Rachel is looking through old set list numbers when Kitty walks in and tells her that she'll join, she then questions where everybody is and Rachel tells her she had to postpone Glee club for an hour because she is still struggling to find a set list for the competition because she doesn't know what songs Sue would like. Kitty tells her that she knows exactly how to find out what songs Sue likes. We then see Kitty and Rachel break in to Sue's office, Kitty opens up Sue's laptop where she finds a file where there lists songs that Sue is emotionally vulnerable to.
The next day, Kitty walks into the Choir Room to rehearse for the competition with the rest of New Directions. Madison asks why she is here because she said that she was never going to join again and Kitty tells her that someone had to stop her from marrying her brother. Rachel gives all the New Directions a new set list to rehearse from and when most of them disagree to the idea, Kitty defends Rachel by saying they should listen to their teacher because she has more talent in her little finger than anyone in "this stinkin' rotten town". Then after Rachel gives everyone a pep talk, Spencer walks in announcing he is joining the New Directions to which Kitty and the other members are pleased to hear and they all hug each other.
Kitty performs It Must Have Been Love, Father Figure and All Out of Love with the New Directions getting solo lines in It Must Have Been Love with Spencer. After they perform Sue announces that the New Directions actually won the competition and Kitty goes up to grab the trophy. She takes it back to the New Directions and they all cheer, celebrate and jump up and down in excitement.Afterwards, Rachel puts the trophy in the Choir room. Kitty then tells the New Directions to listen up, she tells them that they were up against the 2 best show choirs in the state and because they thrashed them they went home feeling like their willies were 2 inches shorter. She then tells them she will make fun of them at one point or another but she never wants to hear any of them discourage the things they do as a team. Then Kurt asks her to count down as everyone puts their hands in the middle and cheer.
Kitty is present when Kurt and Rachel introduce the weeks theme which is "Burt Bacharach". She mutters to Spencer "This is a good time to go to the bathroom". When Mercedes then enters the room and asks everyone who wants to be mentored by me, Kitty along with the rest of New Directions enthusiastically get up wanting it to be them.
Finally, at the end of the episode Kitty is present when the Alumni and New Directions surprise Brittany and Santana. She tells them both that "the new kids and I would be honored to cater, pass out programs and release the doves". Then everyone breaks out into a performance of What the World Needs Now as they sing it to Brittany and Santana, at the end everyone hugs and cheers.
Kitty is first seen when Sam calls upon a few friends to help out Rachel. When Sam and Kurt walk into the room she rolls her eyes and mutters "Oh for the love of all that's sacred what now?". Sam then explains to them that Rachel's house is being sold and Kitty chips in saying "Just to be clear we are still talking about Rachel or are you announcing your new gender". To which Sam denies her statement and says it's all about Rachel.
We next see Kitty in the Choir Room when Rachel announces the theme for the week is "Artists From Ohio" then Kurt butts in and says the real lesson is "Transitioning". Sam then announces that there is going to be a farewell party to say goodbye to Rachel's house which will be in her basement. Madison and Mason question the lesson and Kitty tells them to shut up.
Then, Kitty is next seen at Rachel's house part along with everyone else. She is present when Mercedes and Roderick perform All About That Bass and is seen dancing with Artie. Next Blaine and Kurt perform Somebody Loves You, Kitty can been seen dancing with everyone and when they bring in a fancy dress box Kitty is seen fighting over a pink tutu skirt with Spencer in which she loses. Also during the performance Kitty takes a selfie with Artie, takes a photo of Madison and gets up on stage and dances with Kurt. Then when Rachel and Sam perform Time After Time Kitty takes a photo of them which is put on Rachel's memory wall. Kitty along with Blaine then pick out a photo to stick in Rachel's scrap book.
She gets up and dances with Brittany, Mike and other wedding guests when Artie performs Hey Ya!. When Blaine, Brittany, Kurt and Santana are singing Our Day Will Come she is shown to be dancing with Artie.

Kitty is next seen in the Choir Room with the rest of the New Directions when Rachel and Will announces that they are performing at Myron's bar mitzvah, Kitty is pleased to hear this and she immediately turns around to Jane and Roderick to discus ideas.
After that Kitty is with the New Directions when Myron gets trapped in his stage pod, Sue declared that Spencer should climb up and save him but then Spencer suggests Roderick should do it, Kitty suggests to just get a ladder because there must be one somewhere but Roderick takes on the challenge. Kitty watches as Roderick climbs the ladder and when he gets down her along with New Directions cheer for him.
As soon as that's over, Kitty dances in the backround whilst Jane, Roderick and Spencer perform Uptown Funk. After that she performs back-up for Break Free and finally she is seen performing Cool Kids with the rest of the New Directions.

Kitty comments saying where is Rachel since she should be there for that and Will replies saying she has gone to New York. Straight away the New Directions welcome the Warblers to their choir, except Jane.
Then, when Will is trying to work on the choreography for the newly merged show choir things are just not clicking and everyone notices it. Skylar is angry at the New Directions because of how basic the routine is and they still can't manage it, when he comments that women love their blazers Kitty comments "Do they?".

Later, she and Mr. Schue are coaching Roderick and Spencer the dance routines, in which Spencer gets injured. At Sectionals, Kitty sings and dance in all three songs from their setlist.

Artie and Kitty appear to be friends after Kitty joins glee club and are often dance partners in performances. Artie is shown to feel attracted to Kitty in Guilty Pleasures. She notices him being depressed in Wonder-ful. He tells her that he got accepted to a movie-school in New York, but isn't planning on going. Kitty then informs Artie's mother, who hadn't known of Artie's acceptance. Artie is grateful for Kitty's help, beginning a close friendship between the two.
They start a relationship in Love, Love, Love. Kitty is eager to keep their relationship a secret, much to Artie and Tina's disapproval. Together, they sing Drive My Car on their date at the carnival, and later they sing You've Got to Hide Your Love Away in response to their feelings about their secret relationship. When being confronted, she explains that she wanted to be sure she really liked Artie before she gave up her popularity by dating a less popular student. She agrees to make their relationship public then, though, in which they share a kiss and officially become an item. They go to Prom together in Tina in the Sky with Diamonds, and are both nominated for Prom King and Queen. In A Katy or A Gaga, Artie asks Kitty if she is comfortable dating someone as different than he is, and in response she kisses him. In New Directions, Kitty is crying as Artie is called up on the stage to receive his diploma. They apparently break up at some point prior to New New York, but are definitely broke up by Tested.
Kitty returns in Season Six when Rachel and Kurt reboot the glee club. In Homecoming, Kitty is bitter about how Artie treated her when he went to college. It is assumed Artie and Kitty made up and are friends again in What the World Needs Now. In Transitioning, they appear very intimate at Rachel's party but the status of their relationship is still unclear at this point.
