Naya referenced the whole thing in her book, Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes, and Growing Up. But this was the first time the issue had been publicly addressed in any sort of way. There has been speculation for years that Naya and Lea didn't get along, but it was all kept under wraps – or at least they tried to keep it a secret!
Now, Ryan has a new show in the works called Feud. In an interview with E! News, he discusses the new series and actually references his days on Glee, Lea and Naya's disagreements, and the feuds that took place between other cast members. The whole thing is ironically fitting and we can't help but wonder what the Glee cast members think of Ryan spilling the beans years after the show has ended!
Ryan said, "I feel like in the case of that show [Glee], that show was just a sh-t storm of difficulty, largely because, what do you do when you're 18 years old or 19 years old and you wake up one day and you're world famous? I think a lot of that was informed by their youth and being involved in a phenomenon."
He continued, "And I know for a fact that they [Lea and Naya] admired each other's work, ‘cause I directed them both in scenes. I don't think I would take on Lea and Naya. I think for a feud to work on this show, it has to have decades of pain behind it. But if they're still feuding at 40, I might consider it. I'll call them up in a couple years."
Ryan went on to reveal something major about the boys in the cast! He confirmed, "There were many boys on our show that didn't get along. And you never hear about that. You never hear about that in our culture."
Whoa! While Ryan kept his lips zipped about which boys had issues with each other, it just goes to show that not everything was fun and games when the cameras stopped rolling. This is the first time any member of the Glee family has revealed that there were problems between cast members other than Naya and Lea. Which boys do YOU think Ryan could be talking about?
Until we get some names, we're going to pretend like everyone loved each other just as much as we had hoped. Right? Right.
