Ryan Murphy Talks Cory Monteith's Death: 'It Was Like Losing a Child'

Ryan Murphy is opening up about the death of his Glee star Cory Monteith in a new interview three years after the tragic loss.

The television producer talked about the last time he saw Cory, which was when the actor visited the set of The Normal Heart with girlfriend and co-star Lea Michele.

“We hugged, and the last thing he said was ‘I love you, man, and thank you for helping me get better.’ And then the next thing I knew he was dead. It was like losing a child,” Ryan told Entertainment Weekly.

“What started off as being such a great celebration of love and acceptance ultimately became about darkness and death,” Ryan added about moving on with the show after the death. “It was a great lesson in what not to do moving forward. And many of them are my good friends to this day.”

Naya Rivera Didn't Get Along With Lea Michele, But Knows She 'Could Actually Be Good' for Cory Monteith

Naya Rivera is dishing on all the behind-the-scenes drama from her time Glee.

The 29-year-old actress talks candidly about her “feud” with co-star Lea Michele in her new book Sorry, Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes & Growing Up.

“One of the Glee writers once said that Lea and I were like two sides of the same battery and that about sums us up,” Naya wrote. “We are both strong willed and competitive — not just with each other but with everyone — and that’s not a good mixture.”

Naya continued, “As the show progressed, though, that friendship started to break down, especially as Santana moved from a background character to one with bigger plot lines and more screen time. I think Rachel — erm, I mean Lea — didn’t like sharing the spotlight. On top of that, she had a hard time separating work from our outside friendship, whereas it was a lot easier for me. I’m not offended when people offer feedback or criticism, and if things get heated on set, I try to keep perspective. We’re all stressed, yes, but we’re all working toward the same goal, so laugh it off and keep it movin’. Lea was a lot more sensitive, though, and it seemed like she blamed me for anything and everything that went wrong.”

“If I’d complained about anyone or anything, she’d assumed I was b-tching about her,” Naya wrote. “Soon, she started to ignore me, and eventually it got to the point where she didn’t say a word to me for all of season six. Lea and I definitely weren’t the best of friends, and I doubt we’ll ever sit on her couch and eat kale together again, but the rumors of our ‘feud’ were blown out of proportion.”

As for Lea‘s relationship with Cory Monteith, Naya wrote, “When Cory and Lea started dating, it was a total surprise. The more serious they got, the less Cory hung out with us and the more he seemed like a different person. One year he came back from the break between seasons super skinny. He said he’d been spending a lot of time at the gym and was trying to be responsible — not spending money all the time and buying crazy cars like he used to. My personal feelings for Lea aside, I knew that she wasn’t a partier, so I felt like maybe their relationship could actually be good for him. I was happy for Cory to have a stable influence in his life, wherever it was he found it.”

Kevin McHale Says 'Glee' Is 'Off the Air For a Reason'

Glee star Kevin McHale is getting candid about the show’s cancellation in a new interview.

The 26-year-old actor was asked if his character Artie would ever get a spinoff. “Towards the end, there weren’t that many people watching Glee,” he told The Huffington Post. “So I don’t know how many people would then watch a spinoff. We’re off the air for a reason.”

Kevin also said that he thinks the show jumped the shark when they lost one of the show’s stars.

“I will say, not to bring it down or anything, when Cory Monteith died. I don’t think the show ever came back from that,” Kevin said. “It wasn’t for a lack of trying, but the story was going in one direction with his character [Finn Hudson] and he was one of two main characters of the show.”

“I think after that the vibe on set was different,” he added. “It was just weird for us being there never mind actually having to be filming. Being one of the writers in that sort of situation — I wouldn’t have known what I would have done because I was like, ‘I don’t really even want to be here.’”
