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.”

Chris Colfer, Lea Michele, Naya Rivera, and the rest of the “Glee” cast have relocated to New York City for rest of season five.
The cast and crew of the Fox TV show will permanently stay there, it was reported.
Fox Entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly said that the show won’t be split between Lima, Ohio, and New York, and it will only be set in NYC.
“We do have it through next season, and that will be its final season. He’s [Ryan Murphy] got some fantastic ideas on what we’re going to do next year for the final year,” he said.
Reilly added that some characters on the show will be leaving McKinley High behind.
“Some are going to be graduating and moving; creatively, it would be ridiculous that everybody moves to New York,” he told EW.com.
“There will be some that will graduate and move on and they’ll arc back in when we do special episodes. They’ll always be a part of it… But for this season, there will be a graduation, several of the cast members will move on and a few others will go to New York.”
A number of fans have called on the show’s producers to move the setting permanently to New York.
He said the sixth season of “Glee” will be the final one.
It’s been quite some time since there was any Brittany/Santana action on “Glee.” On Jan 18, Matt Carter shared a spoiler from Naya Rivera who plays Santana.
Heather Morris who plays Brittany was away from the show because she was expecting her first child. This was covered in the story by an unbelievable MIT scholarship Brittany got and accepted. It appears Morris is set to return.
It is unclear what here scenes will entail but we do know they will involve Santana to some extent. Naya posted on her Twitter account that fans should look for some kind of “Brittana shocker.”
Hello everyone, I’ve thought long and hard about this decision and after doing so for the last two weeks, I have decided to step down from the site. There are a few reasons of why I’m doing this but I don’t feel comfortable divulging why. Megan will now be running the site and I’m sure she’ll update you shortly when she returns. I wish Naya the best of luck in her career. I had a wonderful time running this site, but it’s time to move on.
