Naya Rivera on Her Boob Job: ‘Best $8k I’ve Ever Spent’

No regrets! Naya Rivera revealed that a boob job she got in high school at the age of 18 was one of the best investments she has made.

The Glee alum’s motivation at the time (she hadn’t yet landed her role in the Fox series) was about self-esteem. “My new boobs were a confidence thing, not a sexual thing,” Rivera, now 29, who had a recurring role on The Bernie Mac Show when she had her operation, explains in an excerpt from her book, Sorry Not Sorry, available September 13. “I went around to all my teachers, told them I was going to be out. ‘I’m getting plastic surgery!’ I’d tell them gleefully.”

Rivera, who married Ryan Dorsey in July 2014, adds, “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.”

Post-procedure (and sans napkins), Rivera got lots of attention from her Valencia, California, classmates. “[The boys] all practically fell over themselves rushing to see who could hold the door open for me,” explained the Royal Family actress, who welcomed son Josey in September 2015.

A decade later Rivera has no regrets. “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,” she wrote. “It might have been the best $8k I’ve ever spent.”
