Yesterday, Ventura County Sheriff Bill Ayub confirmed the awful, heartbreaking news that the body that was recovered in Lake Piru after a 5-day search was that of 33-year-old Naya Rivera. Naya’s biggest on-screen credit was arguably the role of Santana in Glee. Much like Mercedes, Santana could have easily carried 100% of her songs without the help of any New Directions backup, but Glee was an ensemble show, which is why everyone usually came together to belt out their emotions through song. Many of Naya’s former cast members have channeled that same ensemble energy, by spilling their feelings online together about Naya’s passing. Yes, even Glee’s most hated former cast member, Lea Michele.
I’m sure Lea Michele really wishes the fact that she’s HEAVILY PREGNANT (Rebekah Vardy stays a messy legend) will encourage all the people who have accused her of treating them like dirt (or in some instances, like cockroaches) to cut her some slack during this difficult time of self-reflection and personal growth. But alas, the hits just keep coming. Former Glee cast member Samantha Ware recently spoke to Variety about being the catalyst for the Great Lea Michele Reckoning we didn’t know we needed, and explained why she decided now was the time to tell the world that Lea once threatened to shit in her wig. She also expanded on her interactions with Lea on the set of Glee. Sorry little fetus, you better cover your ears.
