    I think they were really good friends. It’s hard to keep up pretenses after the death of one-half of the pr setup. Tough call. Can’t admit their romance was a lie but even tougher to carry on pretending that they were more than friends. The wisest thing to do for her right now is to just not say anything. In any case, it’s still devastating to all who loved him.

    @Conundrum: Can you please stop it! Cory just passed away and you’re here implying that they were just faking a romance, please be more respectful this is not the moment. Praying for his family and friends this is just so sad :(

    What on Earth are you thinking? This is not the time to make comments such as that no matter your opinion. It’s insensitive and the lowest of low.

    I was no Gleek but it’s always sad when someone with such talent passes away at a young age and my heart goes out to his friends, family, colleagues and Lea.

    Lily and Opal, Con is making rude, inappropriate comments to get people upset/enraged, etc. Don’t fall for it. Ignore the comment and mourn the loss of Cory Monteith however you see fit!

    I am no fan of Lea or Glee at all (never even watched) but god, this must be devastating, this girl is going to go through awful times. Can’t even imagine all the bad thoughts and pain that must be hitting her now.

    Its shocking to hear that someone like Cory, who although did have substance abuse issues but seemed like he had it under control, could just suddenly die.

    If it were some other out of control celebs, you’d think ‘ya, saw that coming.’ But Cory Monteith? So sad. Far too young to pass away.

    Conundrum Says:

    I am saddened by his passing and my comments weren’t meant to be hurtful/disrespectful. I know all who loved hm are devastated, including Lea. I was just acknowledging that she is put in an even more difficult position than the rest. I have no doubt her grief is real.

    I bet Lea broke up with him and that sent him into a downward spiral. Of course, she can’t admit that now without her looking really bad.

    Gleek Says:

    I’m in complete and utter shock! I can’t process this news, I keep wishing it was a hoax because this cannot be happening. To think that Cory and Lea are supposed to get married in the next two weeks… Oh gosh, poor Lea. A huge condolences to Cory’s family, friends, fans and the Glee cast.

    My heart hurts for Lea and for all the people who loved him and tried to support him and stand by him. He’s in a better place. RIP Cory.
    I’m grateful that he had a chance to share his gifts and his talent with us.

    So sad. I cant say I’m shocked like most of you. I didn’t know him but it seems every time I read about him he was in or out of rehab. Dealing with substance abuse at such a young age rarely ends up good.
