Lea Michele Talks About How She Dealt with Cory Monteith's Passing

Lea Michele shared about how she dealt with her former co-star and boyfriend Cory Monteith’s passing while performing the first show on her tour in Washington, DC, on July 20.

The 35-year-old singer and actress revealed that one of the ways she dealt with Cory‘s passing was by not watching the Glee tribute episode. “I think if I don’t watch it, it just kind of feels like Finn is still there,” Michele said while on stage last week. “So this [song, 'Make You Feel My Love'] is really special.”

“I don’t even remember what I was listening to at the time. Like, nothing. I was just in such a hole… I’m grateful that he asked me. Because it needed to be something that felt real for me,” she said of creator Ryan Murphy asking her about what song to sing in the tribute episode. In the episode, she sings Bob Dylan‘s “Make You Feel My Love.” “I would film it, and then I would run off, and then I would come back. And it was wild and hard, but we healed together, and this song helped.”

Cory tragically passed away on July 13, 2013, of a drug overdose just months after he was released from a rehab center

On Instagram, Lea recently honored Cory on the 9th anniversary of his passing.

Glee's Amber Riley Says Naya Rivera & Cory Monteith's Names Every Day to Honor Their Lives

Amber Riley has written another touching tribute for her late Glee co-star Naya Rivera, who drowned in California’s Lake Piru after heroically saving her son’s life.

In the tribute that Amber posted to Instagram on Thursday (July 23), she said she says both Naya and their late co-star Cory Monteith‘s names every day to honor their lives.

“I’m so mad the world will never see how high you could have soared. Her brain was brilliant. She was smart and as quick as a whip. Always had me in stitches, we would be in tears laughing so hard at one another,” Amber said. “There was never competition, or shade, or intimidation with us. Just pure adoration and mutual respect. You deserved better. You were so much more than just this show. Your talent outshined us all so many times!”

“Favorite Naya Moment: tour bus to London, Naya greasing her scalp with Doo Gro oil, a plastic cap and a silk bonnet 😂 my sister said ‘oh Naya you blackity black black’ we burst out into laughter! We needed it too because we just wanted to get home to our families. We were alike in that way. We love hard, and protect our own, and we don’t take no shit from anyone (Kevin is literally the byproduct of US 😂) We can either slice you with our words, or bring you comfort with that same breath. Dealer’s choice. I say your name everyday and hold you in my heart, just like I do Cory,” she continued.

If you don’t know, Naya‘s body was recovered from Lake Piru after a search was underway for five days. Naya was found on Monday (July 13), which was the seven-year anniversary of Cory‘s tragic death.

“For the last 7 years the 13th of July has shattered our hearts beyond repair. There aren’t enough words to describe the pain we are feeling, we are truly heartbroken at the loss of @nayarivera,” Ann wrote. “Naya, Cory loved you so so much. He cherished your friendship more than you will ever know. From the laughs you shared, to the strength you gave him when he needed it the most. Cory truly adored you. He was in awe of your incredible talent, the way you gave everything you had to each performance; the slap in the auditorium was one of his favourite stories to share. You once said Cory was like a member of your family; you will always be a part of ours. We’ll carry you in our hearts forever. We miss you. Friends reunited for eternity.”

“We send all our love and strength to your beautiful boy, your family, friends and fans 💔🐻💔,” she concluded.

Lea Michele also paid tribute to both Cory and Naya on Monday.

Glee's Kevin McHale Believes Cory Monteith Helped Find Naya Rivera on the Anniversary of His Death

Naya Rivera‘s body was discovered on the seventh anniversary of Cory Monteith‘s death and their co-star Kevin McHale believes he helped find her.

The 32-year-old actor took to Twitter on Monday night (July 13) to share his thoughts.

“I’m not religious by any means, but you’d be hard-pressed to convince me that Cory didn’t help find our girl today. These 2, in many ways, were the male and female versions of one another. So nice, cared deeply, were stupidly talented, the most fun, and really really good people,” Kevin wrote.

Kevin quote-tweeted a tweet that a fan wrote that included a video of Naya and Cory greeting fans after one of the live Glee concerts.

Earlier in the day, Kevin wrote a beautiful tribute for Naya in which he talked about the plans they had made just last week.

Investigators revealed the devastating way that they believe Naya died and what she did in her final moments was truly heroic.
