How hard this must be, but we hope it also provides some closure and peace for Lea Michele.
We can't imagine she would ever not want to be involved in planning the Glee tribute episode for Cory Monteith, which will appear as the third episode next season, but we are amazed to hear she's apparently taking the lead in planning the touching and emotional episode.
An insider has revealed Lea is all about making sure Cory's memory is handled properly. The insider said:
"The producers are still going back and forth on what they want to do and clearing music for his tribute. The meetings are lengthy and Lea is a part of them to make sure everything is just right."
We are so impressed with how strong Lea has been this whole time, and we're sure Cory would be happy.
We're also so proud she's been able to move forward with her professional and personal life at the pace that feels just right for her.
Our thoughts are still with the cast as they prepare for this difficult episode!
