“Grief Goes With You Every Day”: Lea Michele Remembers Cory Monteith On Ellen

lea michele ellen
RIP, Cory Monteith

Lea Michele has been slowly opening in the media about how she is coping after Cory Monteith’s sudden death in July from a drug overdose. The “Glee” costars had also been a couple and Michele stood by Monteith during his struggles with addiction. Yesterday she appeared on Ellen DeGeneres’ show and praised her friend Kate Hudson for opening up her home after Monteith’s death, so Lea could hide out from paparazzi. She also repeatedly called the “Glee” cast her “family” and said they are all getting through this together. “I really feel like I’m trying to figure out all of this. It’s only been a few months,” she said. “My mom has experienced a lot of loss in her life and she told me, at one point, she said there’s an empowerment that comes with grief. At some point, you find it. It’s very hard, but you will find it. At some point, you can choose to fall from this or you can choose to rise.” It’s a very sad talk — but at the same time makes me respect Lea Michele so much more for her strength and grace.

Lea Michele Shares How’s She Handling Cory Monteith’s Death

“I never thought I would be in this position in my whole life. Now that I am in this position, you can choose to rise, and that’s what I’m going to try to do. I know that Cory would want nothing more than for me to take this situation and use it to help people. … It’s very hard. And you have to be very strong to come out of this alive, but I think by doing the best for myself, by showing that you don’t have to lose yourself, maybe someone else will feel some sort of strength or comfort.”

And someone who has lost a loved one to drug addiction, and has loved others who’ve struggled with it, I really, really appreciate what Lea Michele has to say about moving forward with her life following boyfriend Cory Monteith’s death. I don’t think anyone would blame Lea if she found herself weighed down by heartbreak and guilt, but that she chooses to have a more positive outlook, to take care of herself and to live the best life she can not just in Cory’s memory, but because it’s what anyone deserves, is inspiring.

Watch Lea Michele's Emotional Performance

Last night’s episode of “Glee” dealt with the death of cast member Cory Monteith and his character, Finn, but interestingly, did not address how the actor/character passed. ”I care more about how he lived,” said Kurt at the top of the episode. Above, watch Monteith’s real-life girlfriend, Lea Michele, sing Bob Dylan’s “Let You Feel My Love,” with tears running down her face. I had chills the entire time. Just beautiful and heartbreaking. You can watch the rest of the performances here.

Cory Monteith Tribute Angers Son Of “Odd Couple” Actor Jack Klugman

I only made it through one hour of the Emmys last night because “Breaking Bad” rules my life and the second to last episode aired at the same time. But I followed along on Twitter and it seemed like the Emmys somewhat unintentionally were themed around death. In between giving out awards, various members of the television business who passed away this year were honored, either in individual tributes or as part of a montage. This went on throughout the show, rather than in a typical single segment, with five people getting individual tributes. (This dour mood makes sense when you consider how many especially well-known TV stars and contributors knocked on heaven’s door this year.) Jean Stapleton, who played Edith Bunker on “All In The Family,” was honored by Rob Reiner; Edie Falco paid tribute to her “Sopranos” husband, James Gandolfini; and Jane Lynch remembered her “Glee” costar Cory Monteith, who died of a drug overdose in July. Comedian and actor Jonathan Winters, and Family Ties producer Gary David Goldberg were also individually honored. Not a dry eye was in the house, like, all night.

But one person was more angry than moved by the tribute to Monteith. Jack Klugman, who starred on “The Odd Couple” and was a three-time Emmy winner, passed away in December 2012 and was included in the remembrance montage, a fact which his son, Adam Klugman, says is “criminal” and “an insult.” The younger Klugman seemed to take particular issue with Monteith getting an in memoriam segment all his own, telling the Associated Press, “It really seems typical of this youth-centric culture that has an extremely short attention span and panders to only a very narrow demographic [of young adults].” Keep reading »
