In an exclusive interview on "The Talk@Home, "Glee" star Dot-Marie Jones, who played Coach Beiste, remembers her co-star Naya Rivera. "It's heartbreaking... I love her so much because she's the real deal. She's no BS. She's not fake. What you see is what you get," says Jones. On going to Lake Piru with her fellow "Glee" cast members, she says, "We had been in a group text the night before, and we had planned to go out that night, but it was already coming on 5 o'clock, and the lake from where I live is like 45 minutes away, an hour. And the kids decided, you know, maybe we can do it first thing in the morning. I told Bridgett [Casteen], my wife, I just said, 'I gotta go.' And she said, 'I know you do.' And so, I went out by myself - got there probably about six, and cried and prayed and talked, and you know, told her she had to come home, so we could all rest, and especially her mama and her family." She adds, "The kids being there, and all of us praying and talking, and I know Cory [Monteith] had something to do with it. He had to because, God bless, they found her on the seventh anniversary of Cory's death, which is unfathomable." Full interview will air on Friday, July 17.
