Lea Michele left the set of Glee in a huff. And what was the reason for her strange behavior? Reportedly, she was in a rage following Naya Rivera’s whining that she was acting like a high and mighty personage on set.
Michele had been taking mini-breaks to attend to certain private matters during the footage of Glee. This was causing a lot of people to become rather upset and Rivera was only voicing the general opinion of the majority when she labeled Michele a diva.
The repetitive vacuums in the place where Lea should have been were a source of intense irritation for many. There is some confusion as to which actress is angry and which one has left the set angrily. Some quote Lea while others cite Rivera. It seems that truth is the first casualty of war.
Actually, the actions of both the actresses resembled divas. Their sensitivity levels were so heightened that they failed on the tolerance factor.
The situation had been building up in tension for awhile. But a time came when it reached critical mass. And then Rivera exploded and Lea blew her top. Naya told the producers in crystal clear words filled with anger and frustration that her costar was simply insufferable.
The exasperation that each and every member of the crew on set was facing due to this pretty princess’s royal behavior was getting to be a little too much. The fact that Rivera had the courage to speak up shows her courage and spirit of fighting injustice.
It was when Lea returned after her interregnum that she found out about what had been going on behind her back. She flipped out. And as for Naya, some say she was kicked off the set while others deny that any such thing happened.
