Naya Rivera’s forthcoming memoir Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes and Growing Up is exactly what the title reads: personal stories regarding Rivera’s career as an actress, some of her life mistakes and growing up in the industry. Juicy, right?
Leading up to the September release of the tell-all book, People has been releasing excerpts from the book and in the latest revelation, Rivera dishes on dropping $8,000 for her breast implants.
When Rivera turned 18, the mother of one used her savings from Family Matters and The Royal Family to pay for the plastic surgery. “I went around to all my teachers, told them I was going to be out,” she wrote. “‘I’m getting plastic surgery!’ I’d tell them gleefully. My new boobs were a confidence thing, not a sexual thing. I’d never even taken my top off for a guy. I hadn’t had many opportunities to do so, but even if I had, my bra was always stuffed with napkins.”
According to Naya, the moment her breast size plumped up, the attention was all on her … duh, the boys. “As soon as I went back to school, [the boys] all practically fell over themselves rushing to see who could hold the door open for me,” she wrote. “People have a lot of opinions about plastic surgery, but more than 10 years after I got my boobs, they still make me happy when I look in the mirror.”
That’s when the actress admitted, “It might have been the best $8k I’ve ever spent.”
To put things in perspective, $8k is practically a full year’s tuition at a University … or a nice used car … or maybe even a few nice trips around the world. Needless to say, the boobs will hopefully last a lifetime.
Sorry Not Sorry is available September 13.
