Lea Michele Opens Up About Cory Monteith: 'There Was No Greater Man'

Lea Michele Opens Up About Cory Monteith: 'There Was No Greater Man'

Lea Michele has broken her silence on the tragic death of her beloved boyfriend Cory Monteith just one day before his Glee tribute episode is set to air.

“For me personally, I’ve lost two people: Cory and Finn,” the 27-year-old Glee star told TV Week Australia. “We had a beautiful memorial for Cory in the auditorium and some of the cast members sang and people spoke about him. It only felt right that we would do the same thing for Finn, so I felt it was very therapeutic.”

“Everyone is asking: ‘Is it hard to do this? Is it hard to be back at work?’, but the truth is it’s no harder at work than it is in life,” Lea continued. “So we might as well all be together as a family supporting each other to get through this together.”

“I woke up every single day feeling like I was in some sort of spell or something, that I was lucky enough to have him in my life,” Lea shared. “There was no greater man than Cory, so for the time we spent together, I consider myself very lucky.”

Be sure to tune into Glee tomorrow night to see the full tribute episode.

‘There Was No Greater Man’… until she meets the next one…

# 5

As much as I loved Glee and Cory, he was a drug abuser. He obviously was more into the drugs than her.

breaks her silence again?

Cory, I miss you so much </3

Lea’s words about Cory could not be more heartbreaking and beautiful.

” many other actors returned to pay tribute to Cory…even ones with less of a story connection to Finn than Diana had!” the source told Radar.
“Remember, she played his GIRLFRIEND on the series, and was a major part of his storyline.”
The insider reveals that Monteith’s girlfriend, LEA MICHELE, and co-creator, Ryan Murphy, “intensely dislike Dianna and have both worked to marginalize her as much as possible.”
“They never saw her as a team player,” the insider added.
“They simply did not want her sharing the glory for this very special episode.”

@PP: Yes, it’s very admirable but heartbreaking.

@Becca: It’s fake!!! hahaha

doesn’t matter if it’s real or not
Beca
It trashs the beyotch
LOL

You are all so mean. You don’t dont know her or what she went through.

Wonder what an arrogant twat Dianna must have been for the show runners to hate her so much.

Aww, that was nice. I’m glad she got back to work if that was what she needed.

I hope beyond hope that all who come here to trash Lea suffer a terrible, heartbreaking loss, and all have one person standing off in the periphery of their lives shouting taunts and jeers, telling that that what they feel isn’t real, that they are milking it for attention and that their grief is invalid because the person they are grieving for was flawed. She may be a celebrity and the only time you see her face is on a gossip blog, but she is as real as you are and her pain is as real as yours. You deserve to suffer the way she has suffered and endure the hate that you are spewing at her tenfold.

how convenience, break the silence a day before a tribute episode. can someone give this girl a B! Tch slap.

@go go You beat me to it.

people here are forgetting that he was a drug addict and he brought this on himself. Sure, he was good in Glee but drugs were his choice.

@Cara: Nobody’s forgetting that. They’re just not heartless idiots like some of you and are smarter than the assumption that it defines his entire life.

Lea, you’re wonderful.

Oh COME ON GIRLL! just quit it NOW!!!

I do feel for Lea and the cast of Glee. It can’t be easy to lose someone that you loved and worked with. She seems like a kind-hearted down to Earth individual. I hope she finds happiness and love with someone new when she’s ready.
