You may know Naya Rivera best as Santana Lopez from Glee, a talented and fearless lesbian cheerleader and glee club member. But you may not know that Rivera is now an author. Her debut memoir, Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes, and Growing Up, will be released later this year, and fans can be sure that the autobiography will include plenty of Glee gossip, as well as life lessons from this actress, singer, mother, and wife.
The memoir recounts Naya Rivera's very public successes and failures — from childhood stardom to her troubled young adulthood to her success on Glee . With refreshing humor and undeniable sincerity, Rivera details her life as a child star (she appeared on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Family Matters), her struggles in high school, her stint as a waitress at Hooters, and more. According to the publisher, Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes, and Growing Up urges young women to move past their mistakes and pursue their dreams.
Rivera also speaks candidly about the things she's sorry about (falling in love with the idea of a person instead of the reality; trying DIY hair extensions) and the things she's NOT sorry about (not being friends with everyone; getting a boob job).
In the trailer from Penguin Random House, fans get-a-behind the scenes peek at Rivera's book cover photoshoot. The always glamorous mother, actress, and fashionista certainly knows how to work a camera. Take a peek:
Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes, and Growing Up will be available wherever books are sold on September 13, 2016.
