I’m going to be honest, I really miss FOX’s Glee.




As someone who sings, I could really appreciate the show and was even in a Glee club in school!

The hit TV show aired from 2009 to 2015 and really catapulted the careers of many stars including Lea Michele and Naya Rivera.

The two were rumoured to have not gotten along on set and now Glee creator is confirming that the two leading ladies definitely butted heads.

He told E! News, “I feel like in the case of that show [‘Glee’], that show was just a s***storm of difficulty, largely because, what do you do when you’re 18 years old or 19 years old and you wake up one day and you’re world famous?”

He added, “I think a lot of that was informed by their youth and being involved in a phenomenon. And I know for a fact that they [Michele and Rivera] admired each other’s work, ’cause I directed them both in scenes.”

Lea and Naya weren’t the only ones to feud on set, several of the guys didn’t get along either, “There were many boys on our show that didn’t get along.And you never hear about that. You never hear about that in our culture.”

This follows along with what Naya wrote in her 2016 memoir, Sorry, Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes & Growing Up.

She spoke about her relationship with her co-star, saying “One of the ‘Glee’ writers once said that Lea and I were like two sides of the same battery and that about sums us up…We are both strong willed and competitive — not just with each other but with everyone — and that’s not a good mixture.”

She added, “As the show progressed, though, that friendship started to break down, especially as Santana moved from a background character to one with bigger plot lines and more screen time. I think Rachel — erm, I mean Lea — didn’t like sharing the spotlight. On top of that, she had a hard time separating work from our outside friendship, whereas it was a lot easier for me. I’m not offended when people offer feedback or criticism, and if things get heated on set, I try to keep perspective. We’re all stressed, yes, but we’re all working toward the same goal, so laugh it off and keep it movin’. Lea was a lot more sensitive, though, and it seemed like she blamed me for anything and everything that went wrong.”

Naya concluded, “Soon, she started to ignore me, and eventually it got to the point where she didn’t say a word to me for all of season six. Lea and I definitely weren’t the best of friends, and I doubt we’ll ever sit on her couch and eat kale together again, but the rumours of our ‘feud’ were blown out of proportion.”

Sad to hear that the two didn’t get along. Makes me miss the show even more!
