The actress says she and her co-star had a strained relationship during the filming of the Fox series.
Naya Rivera’s memoir Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes, and Growing Up contains many juicy revelations from the actress, but one that’s certainly set to interest ‘Glee’ fans concerns her strained relationship with co-star Lea Michele.
Naya Rivera has said she and Lea Michele didn't always see eye-to-eye on ‘Glee’
"I don't hate Lea, and I never have," Rivera writes in the book. "We are both strong-willed and competitive — and that's not a good mixture. When two people with strong personalities are friends, they're eventually going to clash.

The 28-year-old actress returned to 'The View' to clarify what she meant when she said showering "every day is such a white people thing."
Earlier this week Naya Rivera received a heavy backlash when she offered her opinion about people's hygienic habits - specifically showering - but now the 'Glee' actress wants to retract her comments.
Rivera apologised for her controversial remarks about showering
The 28-year-old beauty returned to guest host 'The View' on Wednesday (Jan 14th) to offer an apology for what she said to Rosie O'Donnell, Nicolle Wallace and her other co-hosts about taking showers on Tuesday's show.

A representative stepped in to debunk the speculation.
What on earth is going on between Naya Rivera and Glee? On Wednesday, multiple reports, notably by The New York Daily News and Us Weekly, claimed that Rivera had been axed from Glee ahead of the season finale, because of disagreements with the producers and co-star Lea Michele. More recently however, several different websites have come out, citing the actress’ rep as saying that the rumors are untrue."Any reports or rumors circulating that Naya Rivera was let go or fired from Glee are absolutely untrue. End of story," the rep told The Hollywood Reporter.
So is Rivera leaving Glee or not?
In April, Us Weekly reported on an alleged on-set conflict between Rivera and Michele.

Naya Rivera and Big Sean have called time on their engagement (and apparently he's telling time on her Rolex). These other once engaged celebs also never made it down the aisle.
The most shocking break up news of the week goes to Glee star Naya Rivera and now ex-fiancee Big Sean. The pair have called it quits amid rumours of infidelity and Rolex theft. Naya tweeted “@bigsean stealing rolexes from a lady’s house now. Maybe cuz I’m on Glee and making more money or something. #triflin.” Although the tweet was quickly removed, the plot is definitely thickening.
Naya Rivera and Big Sean have called time on their relationship
These others celebs also decided to end their very high profile engagements, although none of them accused each other of stealing expensive watches. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck AKA Bennifer were a bit of an odd couple to even begin with. In 2003 the couple were involved in an extremely high profile relationship, going so far as to co-star in a couple of god awful movies. The engagement was broken off in 2004, allegedly because Ben wasn’t ready to give up single life. Which makes sense because a year later he married Jennifer Garner. Burnnnnn.

The couple have officially been engaged for half a year.
Big Sean and Naya Rivera have announced that they’re calling it quits on their engagement and the entire relationship. The couple, who have been engaged for about six months, are calling it quits early on, a rep for Big Sean has reportedly confirmed to Billboard.
The couple spent about a year together in total.
"After careful thought and much consideration, Sean has made the difficult decision to call the wedding off," reads the statement from Big Sean's camp. "The recent rumors and accusations reported by so called or fake sources are simply untrue. Sean wishes Naya nothing but the best and it is still his hope that they can continue to work through their issues privately. We will not be commenting again on this matter."

Another day another... 100 episodes of "Glee".
100 episodes in, the New Directions are under threat and it’s time for a Glee reunion. It’s also apparently time to dig up the oldest story lines from the original ND class, so that Ryan Murphy and Co. can show just how much the characters have not progressed since high school. The songs were good though, so we’ll let them off the hook.
The battle of the divas... has been going on since season 1.
They had to be good. Not only was this the 100th episode of the Fox show, it was also a chance to pay Finn Hudson (and, by extension, Cory Monteith) one final farewell, it mostly consisted of the cast revisiting old favorites. Two things should come to mind when you read that – Brittany’s Britney Spears hallucination extravaganza and, of course, the one and only, that age-old Glee favorite – Defying Gravity. Both were revisited in the very first fifteen minutes, of course. The Britney act was a sort of Tango-meets-Toxic-meets-burlesque mashup performed by the Unholy Trinity – Britney, Santana and a holier-than-thou Quinn, relishing the chance to get back to her misfit roots. Cool. Great. Seen it before.

The actress and her professional Derek Hough emerged victorious in last night's finale
Dancing With the Stars crowd its newest winner on Tuesday, 26 November, with Glee actress Amber Riley emerging victorious from the pack of hopeful celebrities. The couple were declared winners ahead of fellow finalists Jack Osbourne, who came in third and Corbin Bleu, who finished the series in second place.
Amber Riley is the new DWTS champion!
Tweeting a victory picture of herself and Hough form backstage at the show, Riley wasn't the only person who was celebrating the win last night, as her Glee co-stars were equally as blown away by the success. Whilst a number of her fellow Glee cast-members tweeted their congratulations for Riley, a handful of her fellow Gleeks, including Lea Michele and Chris Colfer, created a video congratulating Riley on her success, which you can check out below.

Rivera pays tribute to her fallen 'Glee' co-star.
As Glee prepares to bid a final farewell to deceased star Cory Monteith in a special tribute episode this Wednesday, cast member Naya Rivera's tribute has been released before the episode airs. If Naya's cover of The Band Perry's 'If I Die Young' is a flavour of what is to come on Thursday, we're sure to be tasting a lot more of those salty tears.
Naya Rivera Sings A Heart-Felt Tribute To Cory Monteith.
The gentle, yet impassioned acoustic track laments a short life, the stolen opportunities, as well as being thankful for the happy times. "The sharp knife of a short life, oh well/I've had just enough time" sings Rivera who plays Glee's Santana.
The rapper and the actor began dating in early 2013.
Glee actress Naya Rivera and her rapper boyfriend Big Sean are now engaged, as confirmed via a spoksperson to Just Jared. Having dated since early this year, the couple went official last April when they were seen on the red carpet for the movie 42.
They've Swept Each Other Off Their Feet.
26 year-old Naya has since revealed that interest was initially sparked via Twitter when they began to chat after she'd seen a GQ photo spread of the Detroit rapper. "I had followed him and he sent me a little message like, 'I'm a fan.' I tweeted that I followed him; I was trying to get his attention. We went to dinner and the rest is history," she confessed to Access Hollywood. "He's like my biggest cheerleader, my best support system. He sings to me. He's the sweetest guy," Rivera revealed to WiLD 94.9.

Naya Rivera's representative has confirmed the former 'Glee' star is engaged to her boyfriend Big Sean.
Big Sean and Naya Rivera are engaged!
The 26-year-old actress and singer has been dating Big Sean, A.K.A. Sean Michael Anderson, since the beginning of this year. They made their first public appearance together in April at the premiere of 42, but Big Sean stated (in an interview with Complex) they had been dating for some time before. It seems, despite the publicity that has arisen from their relationship, they remained low key for some time and were not concerned about making their relationship public knowledge. Sean put their feelings at the time as simply being, "I really liked her and she really like me."

The former Disney star will be returning to acting when she stars in the hit musical series, and Rivera has let slip what it is she'll be doing.
We've known that Demi Lovato will be appearing in the upcoming season of Glee for a while now, but it wasn't until the recent MTV Video Music Awards that we found out exactly what she'll be doing. It turns out that the former Disney star will be playing the love interest of Naya Rivera's Santana character during her time on the show, which can only be good news right?
Demi will only appear in the show for a limited run
Rivera let it slip that Demi, who will be playing a character called Dani during her limited run on the show, will be appearing as her love interest during her time with Glee, which will return to Fox next month.

She may have only just turned 16, but Kylie Jenner already has a new, more grown-up look about her as her Instagram snap shows
Kylie Jenner celebrated her 16th birthday the only way a young Kardashian could; extravagantly and gaudily. Barely a moment had passed since her Sweet Sixteenth when the budding socialite decided she was due a new, more grown-up look, and through the power of social media she was able to ship her new look across the internet as soon as her make-over was complete.
Kylie has been compared to her step sisters and Glee babe Naya Rivera with her new look
Looking thoughtful and rocking some off-character curls in her hair, Kylie's Instagram snap was uploaded on Tuesday (20 August) whilst she was visiting the set of her mother's show; Kris. This isn't just a quick make-over either, as Kylie looks pretty darn different in her glamour shot, looking more like someone whose just celebrated their 21st birthday than their 16th. As commenters on the picture have noted, she shares a striking resemblance to her step-sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian Odom.
The 2013 Teen Choice Awards, held last night (11th August) saw the likes of the Twilight cast; Pretty Little Liars; The Vampire Diaries and Glee taking home a full sized surf board as a trophy.

Amanda Seyfried opted to keep her clothes on for the 'naked' issue.
Actresses including Naya Rivera, Jennifer Morrison stripped down for nude shots by famed photographer Patrick Demarchelier for the 'Look Better Naked' issue of Allure, though Amanda Seyfried kept her clothes on throughout. It wasn't that the Les Miserables actress was opposed to it though, "I would have, but my publicist wouldn't let me!" she apparently told a friend at a dinner celebrating the new issue, according to the New York Post.
Regardless, Seyfried appeared to make up for the lack of flesh by giving some pretty raunchy answers during the accompanying interview. When asked what advice she was given by her vocal coach for Les Miserables, the actress said she was told to imagine "deep-throating a penis, get that feeling in the back of your throat, and then sing. That's where you larynx is." All that effort and it was Anne Hathaway who ended up winning the Oscar!
Allure's 'Look Better Naked' issue will be available on April 22, 2013. Others posing nude include Cougar Town's Christa Miller and Nashville's Clare Bowen. "My body isn't going to look like this forever. I think it's lovely to have that preservation," the latter said, reflected on the shoot. Jennifer Morrison had a similar outlook, "It hasn't been a conscious choice, but [those offers] don't really come my way," she said. "Maybe this shoot will change that. I've always been an active person, and working out is part of my life."
Aware that children are, indeed, the future, the Kids of America got the best of the entertainment this weekend, at the Kids’ Inaugural – a repeat of the 2009 concert, but this time, with bigger names, playing to a smaller audience. Sasha and Malia Obama were of course, the guests of honour on this special weekend for their father, President Barack Obama, but 5,000 others were present at the exciting pop concert held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Centre, where Katy Perry and Usher took the headline slots, to entertain the gathered youth.
During his set, Usher reinforced the notion that the kids were worth keeping sweet, for the next presidential term, and told them “the youth matters,” during a set described by the Washington Post as “aerobic,” with “twisted limbs clad in black leather, kicking high tops the maraschino cherries.” When he told them to make some noise, they responded with a roar. Katy Perry – an avid supporter of Barack Obama (remember the Katy Perry election dress?) also performed on Saturday night (January 19, 2013). This time, she’d switch up the ballot dress for a “star-spangled onesie” and she treated the kids to some of her biggest hits, including ‘Teenage Dream’ and ‘Firework.’
Also performing for the Kids’ Inaugural were the Far East Movement and Glee’s Darren Criss and Naya Rivera, who covered ‘Valerie,’ the song made famous by Amy Winehouse. If you’re wondering why the kids are getting to have all the fun, don’t worry: Beyonce, Kelly Clarkson and James Taylor are all warming up their vocal cords, to sing for the grown-ups at the official inauguration ceremony today (January 21, 2013).
Made primarily for fans who couldn't attend the summer 2011 tour, this is mainly a concert movie featuring some 20 songs from the TV show. Each main character gets his or her moment in the spotlight as they stir the arena crowd into a frenzy of adoration. Between numbers, we meet fans who have felt the show's impact: sparky high-school cheerleader Janae, who's only incidentally a dwarf; the soulful Trenton, who was forced out as gay in eighth grade; and the reclusive Josie, who has emerged from her shell as a Gleek.
