Naya Rivera isn't known for making controversial remarks, but when the 28-year-old actress recently gave her opinion about people's hygienic habits - specifically showering - she shocked a few to say the least.

Rivera made some questionable remarks about showering while co-hosting 'The View'

Rivera, who celebrated her birthday on Monday, was a guest host on 'The View' on Tuesday morning (Jan 13th) when she made some unintentional silly comments to Rosie O'Donnell, Nicolle Wallace and her other co-hosts about taking showers.

"I have to say I have a theory about showering, [which] is that I think that white people shower a lot more than ethnics," Rivera remarked as Wallace couldn't help but laugh. "I feel like showering more than once a day or every day is such a white people thing."

In response, O'Donnell quickly pointed out a stunned African-American woman in the audience, and said, "Look, there is an African-American woman right there in a yellow shirt that is about to have a heart attack."

Rivera, quickly noticing her comments didn't go down well, tried to defend herself by saying her mother is half-black, half-Puerto Rican. "She showers every day, so I can say this," she said. "But I can say that I am now married to a white man [Ryan Dorsey], and he showers a lot. Like, a lot -- two, three times a day. I'm like, 'What are you doing?'"

To justify her remarks further, Rivera continued the ridiculous debate by becoming scientific when revealing how often she showers. "So the study says, a dermatologist says you are only supposed to shower once or twice every three days, so I'm right on the mark," the 'Glee' actress said.
