'Glee' Creators Pay Tribute to Naya Rivera, Will Create A College Fund For Her Son

The creators of GleeRyan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan – have paid a beautiful tribute to Naya Rivera, who died after a drowning accident this week.

In their statement, the three producers honored Naya‘s memory and have stated that they intend to start a college fund for her four-year-old son, Josey.

“We are heartbroken over the loss of our friend Naya Rivera,” their tribute starts. “Naya wasn’t a series regular when we cast her on Glee. She didn’t have more than a few lines in the pilot. But it didn’t take more than an episode or two for us to realize that we had lucked into finding one of the most talented, special stars we would ever have the pleasure of working with.”

It continues, “Naya could act, she could dance, and she could sing (could she ever sing!) She could nail a joke as well as she could crush you with an emotional scene. She could move between being scary tough and deeply vulnerable with ease. She was a joy to write for, a joy to direct and a joy to be around.”

“Naya is responsible for numerous iconic Glee musical performances- The Adele Mash Up, Valerie, Songbird- but her greatest Glee legacy is probably the humor and humanity that she brought to Santana’s relationship with her best friend and eventual girlfriend/wife Brittany (played by Heather Morris). It was one of the first times an openly lesbian, high school relationship was seen on network television and Naya understood what ‘Brittana’ meant to the many young women who were seeing themselves represented on television for the first time.”

“Naya always made sure that Santana’s love for Brittany was expressed with dignity, strength and with pure intentions. Naya was always moved by the girls who reached out to her to tell her how much Santana and Brittany’s love affected them. Naya’s obligation to them- and to all of her fans- was obvious. She had the rare combination of humility and endless confidence in her talent.”

The three went on, saying, “Naya was a real pro. Always on time, always knew her lines (which wasn’t easy considering the giant mouthfuls of dialogue we often gave her), always kept everyone laughing on the set. She was warm and caring and fiercely protective of the rest of the cast. She was tough and demanding. She was fun. She was kind. She was generous. There were ups and downs during the wonderful and stressful years we spent making Glee. We disagreed, we fought, we made up, then we fought some more, than we made up again. The kinds of things that happen in a family. Naya was more than just an actor on our show- she was our friend.”

The statement concluded, “Our hearts go out to her family, especially her mom, Yolanda, who was a big part of the Glee family and her son Josey. The three of us are currently in the process of creating a college fund for the beautiful son Naya loved most of all.”

During the interview, he revealed that his character Ernie is his favorite character in Ryan Murphy‘s repertoire.

“He had an optimism and a joy that was completely infectious. Honestly, I didn’t want to stop being him,” he said, adding: “The lesson I learned from playing Ernie in Hollywood is to enjoy every minute of your life because ‘we’re all headed for the ol’ dirt pile.’”

He also revealed that Ernie and Patti Lupone’s character Avis had a sex scene that was cut from the show.

The reason was that it was “too damn hot…my sex scene with Patti Lupone was cut because it was too hot for TV.”

Ryan Murphy Explains Why 'The Politician' Season 3 Likely Won't Happen for Several Years

Season two of The Politician just premiered on Netflix, but fans will likely be waiting a long time for the third (and possibly final) season of the series.

The show’s co-creator Ryan Murphy has explained why he won’t move forward with a third season for several years.

“I think for me, for that show, I would like to do, and I think all of us involved in it, would probably like to do three seasons total,” Ryan told Collider. “And I think where season two ends, what I would love to do is take a couple of years off and have Ben Platt get a little bit older for his final race. That would obviously be a presidential race, right? That’s always what we had designed, and I think that’s what our plan is. I’m going to wait. Ben is young, so I want to wait a couple of years to figure out how we age him up a little bit. But that’s always been my plan.”

Ryan Murphy Quietly Announced He & Husband David Miller Are Expecting Their Third Baby

Ryan Murphy and David Miller are celebrating some happy news – they’re expecting their third child together!

The American Horror Story creator slipped in the news in a story he penned for Architectural Digest.

The article gave a look inside Ryan and David‘s home that they share with their two sons, Logan and Ford.

“We are expecting another baby, a boy, in August,” Ryan wrote at the end.

In the article, Ryan also opened up about how starting a family changed what he envisioned for his homes: “With family life came more color (children’s toys are never tasteful beige) and more collections and just … more.”

“My career took off right around the time we had Logan, in 2012, and I went from one or two shows to sometimes 12. Those shows, too, were often colorful and baroque. One day, it suddenly dawned on me that I wanted to live with less: less color, less clutter, fewer things. An edited life.”

Congrats to Ryan and David!

Ryan Murphy wants a redo!

PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Ryan Murphy

“Imagine it’s 2009, and I lived in a world where I knew Lea Michele, Ben Platt and Beanie Feldstein (Ben and Beanie, I believe, were in high school then…and I think they dressed up as Glee characters once for Halloween?),” he wrote.

“If I had access to that talent, here’s the new pilot: Lea and Ben are frenemies who fight for the heart and soul of Glee Club. Ben is also on the football team, and pretty much sleeps with the entire school and is the heartthrob of McKinley. Beanie is their mutual best friend, and torn. Suddenly, Beanie joins forces with Sue Sylvester, joins Glee Club and becomes the main soloist and the ruthless star of the club. Lea and Ben have to then join forces to dethrone her. I WANT TO SHOOT THIS DO OVER PILOT. Maybe I will?” he went on to say.

He also recently revealed a spin-off of this show is in the works!
