Naya Rivera Was Not Shocked by Mark Salling's Child Porn Charges

Naya Rivera is opening up about her thoughts on Mark Salling‘s child pornography charges in an excerpt from her new book “Sorry Not Sorry.”

The 29-year-old actress dated Mark, 34, for three years while they starred on Glee together, but she claims he dumped her after his publicist said their relationship wasn’t good for his public image.

“I can’t say I was totally shocked, but still – WTF?” Naya said about the charges (via People). “My son’s nanny actually told me about it when the story broke. Then I had no doubt that God really did have my back along the way.”

“When Mark dumped me, I thought it was the worst thing ever, but can you imagine if that didn’t happen? And I was laying there in bed when the battering ram came through the door?” Naya added. “I think everyone should have that one relationship where you look back and ask yourself, ‘What the hell was I thinking?’ You’ll learn something and you won’t regret it. Unless, of course, that relationship was with someone who had a sizable stash of child porn on his computer. Then, by all means, regret everything.”

Make sure to read what the actress wrote about her on-set feud with co-star Lea Michele.

Naya Rivera Didn't Get Along With Lea Michele, But Knows She 'Could Actually Be Good' for Cory Monteith

Naya Rivera is dishing on all the behind-the-scenes drama from her time Glee.

The 29-year-old actress talks candidly about her “feud” with co-star Lea Michele in her new book Sorry, Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes & Growing Up.

“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,” Naya wrote. “We are both strong willed and competitive — not just with each other but with everyone — and that’s not a good mixture.”

Naya continued, “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.”

“If I’d complained about anyone or anything, she’d assumed I was b-tching about her,” Naya wrote. “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 rumors of our ‘feud’ were blown out of proportion.”

As for Lea‘s relationship with Cory Monteith, Naya wrote, “When Cory and Lea started dating, it was a total surprise. The more serious they got, the less Cory hung out with us and the more he seemed like a different person. One year he came back from the break between seasons super skinny. He said he’d been spending a lot of time at the gym and was trying to be responsible — not spending money all the time and buying crazy cars like he used to. My personal feelings for Lea aside, I knew that she wasn’t a partier, so I felt like maybe their relationship could actually be good for him. I was happy for Cory to have a stable influence in his life, wherever it was he found it.”

Naya Rivera Describes Ryan Dorsey's Reaction to Her Abortion Decision

Naya Rivera is opening up about her decision to get an abortion after getting pregnant while filming Glee several years ago.

“When I made that decision, I made it by myself, as I feel is the case for a lot of women, and I did not share it with [husband Ryan Dorsey] at the time,” Naya, 29, said on The Real (via People).

“By the time we sort of reconnected, I was like, gosh, there’s a reason why you keep coming back in my life and we keep coming back together. It was like, ‘I have to tell you something,’” Naya added about telling Ryan later about getting the abortion. “He said, ‘In the short time that we dated, I wish that I could have done something to make you feel like you could have trusted me with that information because I would have loved to have been there with you.”

“I think it was the kindest, best thing that any man could have ever said in that situation. It just made me love him that much more,” Naya said.

Naya Rivera on Her Breast Implants: Best $8K I've Ever Spent!

Naya Rivera is opening up about getting plastic surgery when she was 18.

The 29-year-old former Glee actress got breast implants while she was in high school and she is opening up about the experience in her new memoir “Sorry Not Sorry.”

“I went around to all my teachers, told them I was going to be out. ‘I’m getting plastic surgery!’ I’d tell them gleefully,” Naya says in the book, excerpted on People. “My art teacher was stoked – when I told her she said that she too had fake tits and that she was very excited for me.”

“My new boobs were a confidence thing, not a sexual thing,” Naya added. “I’d never even taken my top off for a guy. I hadn’t had many opportunities to do so, but even if I had, my bra was always stuffed with napkins.”

“As soon as I went back to school, [the boys] all practically fell over themselves rushing to see who could hold the door open for me,” she continued. “People have a lot of opinions about plastic surgery, but more than ten years after I got my boobs, they still make me happy when I look in the mirror. It might have even been the best $8K I’ve ever spent.”

Naya wrote in the book that she saved up for the surgery from her roles on Family Matters and The Royal Family. She also said that her family did not approve of her choice at the time.

In the memoir, Naya also talks about her battle with anorexia and how she got an abortion while on Glee.

Naya Rivera Had an Abortion During 'Glee'

Naya Rivera has revealed that she had an abortion during her days on Glee.

The 29-year-old actress makes the emotional confession in her new memoir “Sorry Not Sorry” and she opened up to People about revealing it in the book, out on September 13.

Naya says she became pregnant with now husband Ryan Dorsey‘s child in late 2010 and she found out about the pregnancy just weeks after they broke up. She didn’t tell him at the time, but she aborted the child during her one day off from filming Glee.

“It was very scary to open up about it,” Naya said. “It’s not something a lot of people talk about, but I think they should. I know some people might read it and say, ‘What the Hell?’ But I hope someone out there gets something out of it.”

Naya and Ryan are now the parents of an 11-month-old son named Josey, who she hopes will read the book one day. “I hope it gives him a better perspective on the issues women face. And hopefully he’ll think I’m cool as hell,” she said.

In the book, Naya also opens up about battling anorexia as a teen. Read that excerpt on People.com.
