In her autobiographical book Sorry, Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes & Growing Up , Naya Rivera said that when her character, Santana Lopez, began to take center stage, her relationship with Lea changed. “Soon, she started to ignore me, and eventually it got to the point where she wouldn’t speak to me. Lea and I were definitely not best friends, and I doubt that we’ll ever sit on the couch eating together again.” he assured.
