Santana from glee dating advice on dating a man with a child
For a working actor, she’s refreshingly upfront, talking about fights on Glee, her philandering exes Big Sean and Mark Salling, her struggles with anorexia, her boob job, her abortion, and her marriage to her husband, Pitch’s Ryan Dorsey. Rivera landed her first major role when she was 5 years old on CBS’s The Royal Family, created by Eddie Murphy and starring Della Reese and Redd Foxx.
Here at Vulture, we’ve read the book and culled the best moments from it. Rivera played the youngest grandchild, Hillary, and she says Foxx would tell people he was actually her grandfather, and she even started to believe him.
They were on-again-off-again for a while before he ended things because “he needed to date someone more on his financial level,” she writes. We’re still friends.” Mark Salling was a hot dumpster fire from the beginning.
Rivera met Salling on Glee in 2009, “when he was still a major looker,” she writes.
And we can't be the only ones hoping for more action from them in season three. It's just been overwhelming because it's something that's so real to so many fans and just getting fan letters and meeting people - to be thanked for portraying something and doing something that you love every day is a really crazy feeling. Every night on tour when I looked out I actually saw girls wearing 'Likes Girls' shirts or 'Lebanese' shirts. I feel like we gave them an excuse to be who they are and be proud of that."A lot of fans loved the Santana and Brittany storyline too - are you hoping for more of that? ' You're just thinking in the moment and then later on you get the response. So upset."Heather: "And she was wearing a white suit and they put her in leaves. I think she probably doesn't live in a bad neighbourhood - she just says that so that she can intimidate people.
The pair recently chatted to reporters, so read on to find out what they had to say about Brittana, Santana coming from the wrong side of the tracks, which Paris Hilton song Naya wants Heather to cover, and why that Britney Spears episode was so hard to film... "Heather: "Every episode was a big surprise for us."Naya, you had a big storyline with Santana's sexuality. It's cool and I feel a responsibility now to do a good job."Are you hoping Santana's sexuality is explored more in the third season? I know that [executive producer] Ryan [Murphy] said that no matter what they're going to stay true to her sexual orientation now and take it seriously. "Have you had a big reaction from girls going through the same thing as Santana? So it's like, 'Of course we're going to want to work with each other, because we have a good time'. They were like, 'Oh, go play in leaves in your white suit, but you can't get dirty'."Naya: "'Do choreography on this swing...'"Heather: "'... She probably really is a rich kid."You both started out with comedic roles but your characters have had more dramatic moments recently. No-one's even ever said, 'Hey, what's with Santana? Maybe they're just afraid - maybe they're afraid of me!

Though she insists that rumors of the feud were “blown out of proportion,” she acknowledges that things would often get “heated” on set, especially as Santana became a more prominent character, and claims that Michele “had a hard time separating work from [their] outside friendship.” “If I’d complained about anyone or anything, she’d assumed I was bitching about her,” Rivera writes.
Her first major purchase was a boob job, which she loves: “More than ten years after I got my boobs, they still make me happy when I look in the mirror.Giving love a try after meeting on the set of a TV show.It happened a minimum of seven times on , since, after all, everyone knows about the relationships between Lea Michele & Cory Monteith (RIP) and Melissa Benoist & Blake Jenner — that’s two couples right there.It might have even been the best K I’ve ever spent.” In fact, her art teacher was so impressed by them, Rivera gave her a referral.
Rivera’s first kiss was with Tahj Mowry (yes, the little brother of Tia and Tamera!
