Apparently, More Than a Few Glee Co-Stars Dated & You Never Knew!
The more we learn about what went down behind the scenes of Glee, the less we want to listen. We thought we heard it all after Naya Rivera released her memoir, Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes, and Growing — the feuds, the drugs, the sex… it was all a lot to take in — but, boy, were we in for a rude awakening.
Showrunner Ryan Murphy is on the top of his game right now, with his much-darker series, American Horror Story, in its latest season, and his limited series, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, receiving a ton of accolades at the 68th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. But, in a recent interview, he couldn’t help reflect on his time working on the musical dramedy, which he refers to as “the best time in my life and the worst time in my life.”
“There was a lot of infighting,” he recalls to Entertainment Weekly. “There was a lot of people sleeping together and breaking up. It was good training for being a parent, I’ll tell you that much.” Wait, what?! There were a lot of rumors swirling about the incestuous relationships among the cast — Naya even referred to Jenna Ushkowitz & Kevin McHale‘s shared home as a “sex den of a house” where they all gathered — but there weren’t too many confirmed couples. Lea Michele & Cory Monteith were together up until his death, Melissa Benoist & Blake Jenner are married, Naya & Mark Salling were on-again-off-again for 3 years — those were the confirmed pairings; everything else was speculation. But Ryan said there was a lot of people sleeping together and breaking up. Who else broke up besides Naya & Mark??
While our money’s on Jenna & Kevin at the very least, since there were a bunch of reports about a relationship between them before she started dating The Vampire Diaries‘ Michael Trevino, that still doesn’t make up “a lot.” It’s like, we don’t wanna hear anymore about what went down BTS, because everything seems shady and seedy… but, at the same time, we really do. Details!
As far as the public knows, these are the Glee co-stars who gave love a try IRL:
