  • I’ve seen a lot of complaintsand hate about her going back to set and having Glee finish Cory’s storyline, but this will be good for both of them, everyone. Finishing off Finn’s character with a proper goodbye instead of just an unspoken departure is the best thing. Cory deserves it. It will also be good closure for the cast/fans. It will also keep Lea busy so she’s not wallowing in grief all the time. It’s also probably nice to be on set where they met, fell in love, all the cliches, dong something they shared. Remembering memories in a positive and uplifting way with others who knew and loved him as well.

    UM how could she just go back to Glee and be happy about it? Someone she was in love with just died, and she’s back to work and happy to be back at Glee?! She probably never loved him then. How could she just go back to a place where they both met and worked side by side? It’s been 2 weeks since his death….

    @Lioness: READ THE FIRST COMMENT. Ignorance, smh.

  • Lioness

    regardless, i don’t think she’s actually grieving, she seems pretty okay for a grieving girlfriend…

  • Anna

    This is the best thing for her. Going back to work keeps her busy and focused. People deal with death in different ways, there is no right or wrong way to grieve.

  • Devynn

    @Lioness: She’s tweeted three times since he died. That’s the tiniest glimpse into how she’s actually doing. You have no clue how she’s handling it. Her life can’t stop because Cory died. Glee is her job, they have to keep a schedule whether the cast is sad or not.

    exactly, we’ve all done it, just because she is an actress it doesn’t mean she doesn’t have a job to do. My mother nearly died last year and spent over a month in the hospital and I didn’t miss a day of work. she’s tweeted 3 times, that is certainly not a sign of her not still grieving, nothing she can do is going to bring him back. At this point I think she just wants to grieve with the fans a bit.


    Lea is Donatella Greco’s friend who was also a flight attendant for Al Italia. Whose husband was fooling around behind her back.

    Maybe she doesn’t wanna grieve PUBLICLY. I remember others were saying she was gonna milk this to the media big time. There’s no effing win with some of you people! If she keeps talking about it you’ll say she’s just milking it and make it all about her. If she’s not, like it’s the case now, you’ll say she didn’t love him. NO WIN. Stupid haters.

    @Lioness: I think you haven’t seen comedians nor clowns nor singers trying to make other people happy despite the fact that they have their own life and problems to deal with. Same with Lea. You absolutely know nothing about the entertainment industry. You are the one insensitive enough not to realize the emotion behind the Lea’s tweet! That tweet is to boost her up, and make her fulfill her OTHER duties one of which is her acting career in Glee. She is trying to be strong. Don’t be so arrogant. Don’t act like you know it all. You know nothing about Lea, and how she really feels. ARE YOU LEA? NO! So shut up hater!

  • Lioness

    I think Lea shouldn’t have spoken at all.

  • N

    @Lioness: You seriously think she would have been able to get away with not saying anything. First of all the media wouldn’t have left her alone until she did even now they probably want to get more out of her, and secondly her fans have been twitting her every day to c how she is so she is probably twitting for them. You are an idiot!

  • DiatribesAndOvations

    As they say “The show must go on!” and Lea is a consummate professional. The best way for her to honor his memory is to perform like each performance might be her last.

  • British Latin American

    @Lioness: Dear, you are the one who shouldn’t have spoken, or excuse me, posted.

  • Danae

    You are not supposed to tell someone how their despair after the death of their loved one should look like. She can deal with it this way or another, whatever makes her happy – she should do it. So shut up.
