TV star Naya Rivera is writing a tell-all memoir about her life scheduled for release next year.
“Can’t wait until next spring! So many juicy stories about my life. Glee, guys, growing up & much more. #sorrynotsorry,” the pregnant star tweeted about her new business venture.
According to Publishers Weekly, Rivera’s memoir “Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes, and Growing Up” will chronicle her life and how she struggled for years after becoming a famous child star.
The book set for a 2016 release will tell the “Glee” star’s journey from “rags to riches and back again,” detailing the time when she was a Hooters waitress before landing the role in “Glee.”
Rivera was a cast member on popular sitcoms in the ’90s, such as “Family Matters” and “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” She was previously engaged to rapper Big Sean and is now married to actor Ryan Dorsey. The couple is expecting their first child.
“Sorry Not Sorry” will also talk about Rivera’s dating life and her struggle with being mixed race in Hollywood.
Rivera promises to not hold back on any “juicy” details when she is writing her memoir.
his is definitely news worth singing about.

“We’re having a baby!” she wrote. “Ryan and I feel so blessed and can’t wait to welcome the newest member of our family.” She also posted a photo to Instagram with a message that read, “Bun in the oven!”
Rivera and actor Dorsey, her longtime friend, tied the knot in July 2014, three months after the actress called off her engagement to rapper Big Sean.
Rivera’s rep did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Glee airs its series finale March 20 on Fox.
Naya Rivera’s swan song on “Glee” might have come earlier than expected. The actress-singer reportedly has been booted off the popular Fox series.
The firing comes just a few days after reports surfaced of an on-set argument between Rivera and co-star Lea Michele. But a source with the show told the New York Daily News that Michele did not have a say in the dismissal.
“One co-star would not have any power in whether another returns to the show,” the insider said. Instead, the “Glee” bosses apparently were fed up with the on-set tension.
There are a couple of important things here to report now when it comes to “Glee” season 5, but let us start with something that we know has become a hot subject of debate as of late: Whether or not the fifth season of the show is going to be made up of 22 episodes. There were rumors running around that the order may be shortened to 19 episodes, and it was easier to buy into these “rumors” than most discussions of such things. Why? Think along the lines of the fact that there was the hiatus after the Cory Monteith tragedy, and that production time loss may have just meant that Fox decided to just go with a shorter order.
However, TVLine confirms today that there will still be 22 episodes in this fifth season, with the back nine of them being (as we know already) more New York-centered stories compared to ones that put the life and times of McKinley High into perspective.
On a chilly Los Angeles morning, Naya Rivera arrives at the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf looking every inch the star in a black wool DVF coat over a camouflage print dress, Saint Laurent boots, and oversize Chanel sunglasses that never come off. Her thick black hair, which has been blown straight, cascades over her shoulders. What really turns heads, though, is her ginormous engagement ring, a cushion-cut sparkler, which looks like a six-carat stunner, surrounded by a halo of smaller diamonds. In October, her boyfriend, rapper Sean Michael Anderson, a.k.a. “Big Sean,” proposed, and Rivera is still basking in the excitement of her news. “I think he’s going to be an amazing husband, and he’ll make a great father someday,” she gushes. “He’s so kind to people, but he also wears the pants in our relationship, which I love. We Latinas are very independent and strong, so it’s even sweeter that I’ve found somebody who can let me out of that role for a minute.”
The two met in the most modern of ways: on Twitter. Bored at work, Rivera decided to follow the rapper, whom she’d recently admired in a sexy GQ spread. Anderson, who was touring overseas at the time, was alerted to the nod by her million-plus followers, as well as his assistant, an avid Glee fan who also happens to be Puerto Rican. “She told him, ‘I’m Puerto Rican, she’s Puerto Rican; it sounds like you’d have so much fun with her,’” Rivera recalls. Anderson pulled up an episode of Glee to check Rivera out, liked what he saw, and sent her a private message. At first, Rivera was skeptical that he was the real thing: “Even though he had the verified check mark, I kept thinking, this could be a fan. I have to be careful what I say.”
