Michele, Rivera remembers, "kept threatening to call SAG about the unsafe working conditions." Rivera wrote that she and most of her fellow cast members were pretty close, and always threw parties at Kevin Mc Hale and Jenna Uschkowitz's home, which they all nicknamed the "Love Nest."

Oh, girl.Lea Michele and Matthew Paetz have reportedly split after two years of dating.The Glee star and Paetz began dating in 2014 following the drug overdose death of her former boyfriend and castmate Cory Monteith in July, 2013.The couple, which met on the set of her video for On My Way, moved in together months later, in September, 2014. "Lea is surrounded by her friends, who have rallied around her and support her," a source tells "She's doing fine, focusing on her working, her music and her album." It is unclear when the couple broke up, but last month Lea opened up her about her relationship, insisting Cory would have given her latest flame his seal of approval."He is very into being in a relationship and loves being in one.
