Actress Naya Rivera’s new memoir, Sorry Not Sorry, has more to offer us than just an amazing title. In an interview with People magazine, she talks about one of the big revelations of the book: In 2010, while working on the show Glee, she had an abortion on a day off, alone, without even telling her boyfriend, actor Ryan Dorsey, at the time.

Rivera is now married to him and they have an 11-month-old son together. She says, “It’s not something a lot of people talk about, but I think they should. I know some people might read it and say, ‘What the Hell?’ But I hope someone out there gets something out of it.”
