Lea Michele was one of the many people who had to cope with the shocking loss of Glee’s Cory Monteith and while she’s been pretty open about it all, she made her first TV appearance on The Ellen Show. She candidly opened up about what she loved most about Cory, how Kate Hudson helped her through the pain and why it was so important to jump right back into work.
Lea began the interview by saying, "It's certainly been a pretty rough year, but I've been surrounded by such great people, such great family.” The Glee star has been open about how Kate Hudson opened up her home to her and family after Cory’s shocking death, coming to her rescue when she needed her the most.
Watch her touching interview after the jump.
