Naya Rivera reveals she was pregnant during the filming of Glee as E! has it that Naya Rivera,


Via People:

In her upcoming memoir Sorry Not Sorry – excerpted exclusively in the current issue of PEOPLE – Naya Rivera displays her unique wit and sense of humor while sharing her lighthearted memories of early childhood stardom and fun times on Glee, gets real about her past relationships and happy marriage, and opens up about hard times in her life in hopes of helping other young girls and women facing similar situations. Sorry Not Sorry is on sale Sept. 13.

Naya Rivera became a star playing a singing teen on Glee, but in real life she feels wise beyond her years.

“I’ve done a lot of living,” the actress says in the current issue of PEOPLE. “I’m a 79-year-old trapped in a 29-year-old’s body.”


Rivera has now chronicled that loaded life in her upcoming memoir Sorry Not Sorry – and PEOPLE has an exclusive excerpt before it hits stores.

It was very scary to open up about everything,” Naya says inPeople‘s Sept.

The book is full of light and fun memories from an actress who got her start in Hollywood well before kindergarten, but Rivera also does not shy away from serious subjects – including the revelations that she battled anorexia as a teen and had an abortion she got while on Glee – in hopes of letting other women know they are not alone.

By the time I was a sophomore, I started feeling that what had begun as a game had maybe gone too far. I just avoided food at all costs,” she writes inSorry Not Sorry of coping with her parents splitting and reuniting at the same time her acting career was stalling. “If my mom had packed a lunch for me, I’d either trash it or find some excuse to give it away.”

Rivera says she didn’t really realize the severity of her eating disorder until she decided to write about it in her memoir.

“I was so young and it just seemed to be the norm. Everyone was going through similar stuff,” she tells PEOPLE. “I had no way of knowing if I was going through it worse. I was juggling my feelings and it makes me sad that there are girls still going through that 15 years after I went through it.”

Harder for Rivera to open up about was the fact she had an abortion.

Rivera found out she was pregnant with actor Ryan Dorsey’s child in late 2010 – just weeks after breaking up with him to focus on her career.

Rivera says she did not reveal the pregnancy to Dorsey, whom she wed in 2014and is now the father of her 11months old son. Instead, she made the call to put her career first and terminated the pregnancy during her one day off from filming an episode of Glee.

“It was very scary to open up about everything,” says Rivera. “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.”

One person she hopes gets something out of her memoir is her son, Josey.

“I hope Josey will read it one day,” she says of the book. “I hope it gives him a better perspective on the issues women face.”


Naya Rivera, opening up to peoples must have been a really hard decision and especially with the fact and hate behind an abortion, well good she was honest and had to let it out.
