Lea Michele Denies Naya Rivera ‘Glee’ Fight Rumors on ‘Late Show with David Letterman’ (Video)

May 17, 2014

‘Glee’ star Lea Michele opened about the rumors that she and fellow ‘Glee’ star Naya Rivera are feuding on the set. She spoke on ‘Late Show with David Letterman’ to dispel the falsehoods.

The 27-year-old actress and singer Lea Michele who portrays Rachel Berry on ‘Glee’ was quick to speak out about the rumors which have taken on a life of their own, as rumors typically do, growing until — in this case — one is left thinking she and co-star Naya Rivera embroiled in daily fights and screaming matches on the set.

She told host David Letterman, “It’s really unbelievable the amount of things that can just be completely made up. And it’s really frustrating.” She went on to lament, saying, “The way people like to pit women against each other is really annoying and it’s sad.”

Adding some levity, she said, “If there were ever really a catfight on the show, you’d know about it, because I’d get a ring, and I’d put jello in it, and I’d make it fun for everyone, and it would be super hot.”

She spoke with a mix of poise, confidence and frustration which we can all relate to. How difficult it must be to have to face such untruths as one goes about one’s life and livelihood. After months of being expected to open up about a very real and tragic event in her life — death of her boyfriend and ‘Glee’ co-star Cory Monteith — she is now expected to set the record straight on rumors. And such stereotypical ones at that! Two women in seemingly mortal catfight combat.

It’s an odd elision indeed. But as always, Lea Michele is moving on. A critically acclaimed album her ever-luminous presence on what is still a hit series after all these years, and her new book, ‘Brunette Ambition’ chronicling some of her remarkable successes through challenges and struggles.
