Glee’s Brittany (Heather Morris) and Santana (Naya Rivera) have long been a fan favorite couple. Well, until Santana dumped Britt earlier this season — and Britt promptly moved on to a new romance with Sam (Chord Overstreet).
It’s not just Brittany who’s moving on, though! In Glee’s Season 4 Valentine’s episode, Santana shocked everyone by hooking up with longtime gal pal Quinn (Dianna Agron). Actress Naya Rivera told Wetpaint Entertainment exclusively that she’s not sure if Quinn and Santana will start dating, or if this was more of a one time hookup.
On February 27, Wetpaint Entertainment caught up with Naya at Ryan Murphy’s Inaugural PaleyFest Icon Award ceremony in Beverly Hills, and we asked her the question that is on everybody’s minds. Who does Naya think is ultimately a better fit for Santana: Her ex, Brittany, or her potential new love, Quinn?
We have to say, we’re a bit surprised by her answer. “Neither,” the Glee star told us. “I don't think that either of them are. I think she should go out and explore New York a little bit more. She's such a free spirit now.”
Rachel (Lea Michele) found Brody (Dean Geyer) in NYC, and Kurt (Chris Colfer) found Adam (Oliver Kieran-Jones). It sounds like Naya is ready for Santana find her own NYC hottie to sweep her off her feet.
New love interest or not, though, Naya says that Santana is thriving in her new NYC life. “She's doing really well. She's having a blast! I like it because it's made her a lot less mean and bitchy. She'll tell it like it is regardless — but she's opened up to where she needs to be.”
Wherever Santana goes, drama is sure to follow. Naya says that fans should be prepared for roommate tension with both Brody and Rachel, but Rachel in particular, though she declined to mention what specifically they’ll be fighting about.
With her roommates off at NYADA all day, Santana will need to find some way to pay the bills... and keep busy.
“She's gotten a job,” Naya confirms. “I can just say she is doing something along the lines of what she wants to do, singing and dancing, but on a smaller scale.” Any ideas what Santana’s mystery job might be? Hit the comments with your best guess!
