Naya Rivera, 29, held nothing back on Hollywood Today Live when asked about Lea Michele, 30. Once the now-ancient Glee drama was brought up, Naya admitted that she’s “absolutely” cordial to Lea on red carpets and the like, but when the two aren’t doing their jobs, she gives Lea nothing but the cold shoulder!
“What if you saw her in a parking lot?” Ross Mathews asks Naya in the clip, above. “Which parking lot?” Naya fires back. Ooh — the beef between Lea and Naya is clearly still happening.
In case you haven’t picked up Naya’s new book Sorry Not Sorry yet, here’s what she has to say about her and Lea’s animosity on set: “Lea and I were like two sides of the same battery and that about sums us up,” Naya writes. “We are both strong willed and competitive — not just with each other but with everyone — and that’s not a good mixture.” No, it is not.
Naya adds that she had no patience for Lea’s “sensitivity” on the show. “[If] things get heated on set, I try to keep perspective. We’re all stressed, yes, but we’re all working toward the same goal, so laugh it off and keep it movin’,” Naya explains. “Lea was a lot more sensitive, though, and it seemed like she blamed me for anything and everything that went wrong.” There you have it!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think about Naya’s comments about Lea?
