Glee’s Naya Rivera: “I Was a Bitch” in High School
Santana has no shortage of people on Glee who have been clamoring to be her friend over the years, but actress Naya Rivera’s experience in high school was not quite the same.
Naya appeared on The Talkon March 20 and revealed some surprising truth bombs about her own high school years.
“I was not popular — I was a bitch,” Naya claims when describing the differences between herself and Santana. “But that’s just because I was, like, angry and had no friends.”
Wait — Naya had no friends? Somehow, we find that a bit hard to believe. And the show’s hosts are skeptical as well.
In fact, Sharon Osbourne guesses that other girls didn’t like Naya because they were jealous that she got all the boys. However, that doesn’t appear to have been the case either.
“No, no — I didn’t even go to prom,” Naya continues.
Say what?! It’s hard to imagine someone as stunning as Naya staying home alone on Saturday nights. However, we know she appeared on various TV shows while she was in high school, like Even Stevens and 8 Simple Rules, so maybe she was too busy for a traditional high school experience.
Either way, we’re glad that she no longer appears to be angry anymore, as she was as lovely and self-deprecating on The Talk as she always is. Don’t worry, Naya — you always have a friend in us.
