Heather Morris Reflects On The Importance of Brittany & Santana's Relationship, Almost A Month After Naya Rivera's Death

Heather Morris is looking back on her fondest memories of Naya Rivera and focused on the importance of Glee‘s Brittany and Santana relationship in a new video.

“I have been feeling very heavy lately. I’ve been feeling this like aching in my heart to connect with my fans, to connect with everybody who’s been feeling a little lost and confused during this time,” Heather first started her video before talking about Brittana.

“I don’t need to explain what the importance of Santana and Brittany’s relationship was to all of you who are watching, because most of you felt like it was your gateway into your current life. Most of you felt like it was an inspiration to become your best self,” she shared, adding, “I want you to know that that was never lost on me. It was never lost on Naya.”

Heather continued, “We both knew how special that was. I think she knew a little bit more than I did. I really felt it a lot later with all the messages and all the people reaching out. and I knew the writers also knew that as well. They were basically writing for the fans.”

“I felt a really deep need to connect to all of you right now because I just know how important our relationship was to you all. And I know a lot of you feel very lost and very far away from what happened, a maybe a bit confused. And that’s completely normal,” she went on. “But I felt like it owed it to you guys because I think the fans were such a huge impact on our storyline and I want to thank you all for being such advocates and so supportive of Santana and Brittany’s relationship, because without you guys it never would have existed.”

“You guys helped create something for the writers and, for Naya and I, that made an impact that will last for a lifetime and beyond then. So I want to thank everyone here watching and I want to thank all the fans for your love and support,” Heather said, in a heartfelt thank you to fans. “I want you to know that we are all here with you, that grief looks different on everybody and I want you to be gentle and kind to yourself during this time. I think many of you may feel very far away and I hope this message will help you feel closer.”

Naya went missing after a swimming accident last month at Lake Piru, and her body was unfortunately found five days later on July 13.

Just recently, Heather opened up about her grief in another personal video to fans on social media. See it here…

Heather Morris is opening up about her grief following the death of her friend Naya Rivera and she’s showing fans how she’s coping through dance.

The 33-year-old actress performed a dance to Naya‘s song “Radio Silence” and shared the video on Instagram to celebrate reaching one million followers.

“I want to share something very personal with you all…” Heather captioned the post. “Grieving looks very differently on everyone…but one things for certain: I’ve felt it’s hard to feel joy or keep busy when mourning without thinking that you’re not honoring that person or you’re forgetting about them. But [my husband Taylor Hubbell] reminded me that honoring someone can mean you’re enjoying your life FOR them…”

“I made it to 1M followers in these last few weeks and at first I was resentful because I gained them from a tragedy, but after giving it a breath.. I realized you all have just surrounded me with love and support. That I just see you angels wrapping your wings around me 🙏🏻,” Heather continued. “So I’m celebrating 1Million today in a tribute to @nayarivera with her music and her voice that will forever be my favorite.”

Heather previously opened up about the plans that she and Naya had made for last week and how she’ll do something every day to honor her legacy.

“The messages are going to trickle out. But you’re still here with me. And I’m not done remembering your legacy,” Heather wrote.

Heather continued, “You would tell me ‘you look so skinny’ EVERY TIME you saw me and it made me giggle slash I loved it and when I told you how it made me feel…you said ‘well I’d always like to hear that I look skinny so I make sure to make others feel good like that.’”

“We had a play date in the works for this week and I can’t wait for it to be over so I can stop thinking about how I missed our chance to be together,” she added. “I f–king loved how you drank martini’s and no one would know you smoked cuz you were a mastermind at hiding it. I’m doing something everyday to honor your strength and it helps me to feel close to you. I love you Nay.”

Heather Morris Shares Pictures of Her Sons With Josey Dorsey In Touching Tribute to Naya Rivera

Heather Morris is ready to speak out following the tragic death of Naya Rivera.

The former Glee star paid tribute to her on-screen partner on the series by sharing touching images of their sons together.

“We started out as the closest friends and then like all new things, we went through a bit of a rocky phase,” Heather writes as she showed off a recent trip of their boys to a ghost town attraction. “However, we stuck by each other’s side and created the most beautiful friendship built out of love and understanding.”

She continues, remembering the last time they interacted: “The last I had the chance to see you in person, I had left oranges outside our home for you to take. I wanted to say hi through the window but my phone didn’t ring when you called (which it never does, f*cking T-Mobile), so instead you and Josey left two succulents on our doorstep as a thank you. I planted those succulents and I look at them everyday and think of you.”

“I still listen to your EP on repeat because from the moment I heard it, it struck me and I always wished the world knew more of your voice,” Heather went on. “You sent me over 5 dozen SnapChat videos when you and Josey woke up in the morning and I kick myself that I didn’t save one of them. You always shared recipes and I admired your love for food. We vowed to spend every Easter together, even though Covid stole this last one from us.”

“You are and always will be the strongest and most resilient human being I know, and I vowed to carry that with me as I continue to live my life.”

Heather also spoke about how Naya was a constant light in her life.

“You constantly taught me lessons about grief, about beauty and poise, about being strong, resilient and about not giving a f*** (but still somehow respectful ). Yet, the utmost important lesson I learned most of all from you was being a consistent and loving friend. You were the first to check in, the first to ask questions, the first to listen..you cherished our friendship and I never took that for granted.”

“We never took photos together because we mutually hated taking pictures…our relationship meant more than proof. I have countless pictures of our babies playing, because we shared that kind of pride and joy,” Heather adds. “So I’m showing the world a photo of our little goof balls for you, because I know that meant more than anything and they remind me of you and I.”

She concluded, “I speak to you everyday because I know you’re still with me and even though I’m feeling greedy that we don’t get more time together, I cherish every moment we had and hold it close to my heart.”

Heather was one of the first of Naya‘s co-stars to reach out to authorities to find a way to help in the search for her and gathered more cast members for a trip to the lake to pray for her.

Naya died during a drowning accident last week after a trip to Lake Piru in California with her son, Josey Dorsey. Her body was found on Monday, July 13.

Naya Rivera's Friends & Family Gather at Lake Piru in Heartbreaking Image

ABC7 Eyewitness News caught a heartbreaking moment featuring Naya Rivera‘s family and friends on site at Lake Piru in California just before it was announced that a body was found during the search for the missing Glee star.

It appeared as if Naya‘s loved ones gathered and stood hand-in-hand together, looking out on the large body of water where search and rescue divers are looking for the Glee star. She went missing on Wednesday (July 8) in the lake after going boating with her four-year-old son Josey. Josey told authorities that his mom never came back to the boat after swimming.

Fans think they identified Glee co-stars Amber Riley, Chris Colfer, Kevin McHale, Heather Morris, and Jenna Ushkowitz as part of the group that were there to support during the search.

No further updates have been given by authorities and we are awaiting a press conference shortly. Naya‘s Glee co-stars have also been posting messages about her today after news that a body was found.

Our thoughts are with all of Naya Rivera‘s loved ones.

Heather Morris Asks If She Can Join Search Efforts for Naya Rivera

Heather Morris is offering her help in the search for Naya Rivera.

The 33-year-old Glee actress reached out the Venture County Sheriff’s department on Twitter on Saturday (July 11) to ask if there is anyway she can help as they search for Naya at Lake Piru after her disappearance.

“My name is Heather Morris, I’m Nayas close friend and co-worker, and I’m trying to conduct an on foot search and rescue mission along with a small group of friends at Lake Piru,” Heather tweeted. “I understand your team is doing EVERYTHING in their power, but we are feeling helpless, powerless and want to help in any way. I have left a message with the department of Rescue and Air today, and I will call again tomorrow. Thank you”

Three days ago, Naya went missing at the lake while on a boat trip with 4-year-old son Josey. Hours later, Josey was found asleep on the boat, and told authorities that he and his mom went swimming, but Naya never returned to the boat.

On Friday night, the authorities gave an update and explained why they’re ruling out suicide as a possibility in the disappearance.
