During its run, I feel Naya was painted as difficult. From the spats with Lea, suddenly being off show for a bit, etc - it seemed media and more likely RIB were controlling the narrative to make her out to be the biggest bitch.
So many cast members have written the most loving and heartfelt tributes to her. Multiple tributes on social media and now Variety. No one is perfect, but she seemed to be so beloved by many.
