Naya Rivera is singing out with "Glee" gossip in her new book, "Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes, and Growing Up," including her take on her strained relationship with former co-star Lea Michele (Rachel Berry).

Rivera (who played Santana Lopez) wrote that she wishes she and Michele had a better relationship (there was talk at one point that Michele got Rivera fired from "Glee") but insists "rumors of a 'feud' were blown out of proportion."

"I don't hate Lea, and I never have," Rivera wrote (via TooFab), adding, "We are both strong-willed and competitive — and that's not a good mixture. When two people with strong personalities are friends, they're eventually going to clash. And maybe they'll get over it; maybe they won't. Lea and I didn't."

Rivera said the actresses started out as friends, but as time went on, things got tense, and she seems to lay a lot of the blame at Lea Michele's feet.

"I think Rachel — erm, I mean Lea — didn't like sharing the spotlight. She had a hard time separating work from our outside friendship." Rivera explained, "Lea was a lot more sensitive, though, and sometimes it seemed like she blamed me for anything and everything that went wrong. If I'd complained about anyone or anything, she assumed I was bitching about her. Soon she started to ignore me, and eventually it got to the point where she didn't say a word to me for all of season six."

"Glee" Season 6, which aired in early 2015, was the final season of the series.
2012 Do Something Awards - Backstage And AudienceRivera did have some nice things to say about Michele, though, especially in regard to their "Glee" co-star, and Michele's then-boyfriend, Cory Monteith.

"My personal feelings for Lea aside, I knew that she wasn't a partier, so I felt like maybe their relationship could actually be good for him," Rivera wrote. "I was happy for Cory to have a stable influence in his life, wherever it was he found it." Sadly, as fans know, Monteith died in 2013 from a combination of heroin and alcohol.

Rivera's book, available now, also covers her relationships with Mark Salling and Big Sean.
