What’s up with our culture’s obsession with women feuding?
It’s no secret that Lea Michele and Naya Rivera didn’t really see eye to eye during their days filming Glee — but the hit show’s co-creator Ryan Murphy is here to say that several of the guys “didn’t get along” either, something that was never publicized!
The showrunner also chopped up the divide between the leading ladies to being young and famous.
He told E! News while discussing his new show on FX called — you guessed it — Feud:
“I feel like in the case of that show [Glee], that show was just a shitstorm of difficulty, largely because, what do you do when you’re 18 years old or 19 years old and you wake up one day and you’re world famous? I think a lot of that was informed by their youth and being involved in a phenomenon. And I know for a fact that they [Lea and Naya] admired each other’s work, ├óΓé¼╦£cause I directed them both in scenes. I don’t think I would take on Lea and Naya. I think for a feud to work on this show, it has to have decades of pain behind it. But if they’re still feuding at 40, I might consider it. I’ll call them up in a couple years.”
Then he added:
“There were many boys on our show that didn’t get along. And you never hear about that. You never hear about that in our culture.”
While he didn’t offer up any names, we definitely think this is an interesting point!
