We all knew Cory Monteith had a big role in Lea Michele's life. She has said he was her biggest fan and always rallied for her, but who knew he had a hand in shaping her memoir, Brunette Ambition?

More specifically though, the chapter that would tell the world how bestie, Jonathan Groff, came out to her.

At her Barnes & Noble book signing, the Glee star opened up about her writing process and explained how Cory helped her scale back on exposing too much of her relationship with her BFF.

She said to Jonathan and the crowd:

Lea Michele Reveals The Real Cory Monteith: Addiction Might've Won, But It Didn't Define Him

| Filed under: Love LineLea MicheleCory Monteith

lea michele cory monteith decisions affect

Cory Monteith has influenced Lea Michele ever since he came into her life.

Even though he isn't with her physically anymore since he tragically passed away last summer, Cory continues to affect Lea's life in many ways and she continues to remember the great times and conversations they had together.

The Glee star opened up about their relationship and revealed:

"I only have happy memories of Cory. He was not his addiction—unfortunately, it won. But that wasn't who he was. Cory made me feel like a queen every day. From the minute he said, 'I'm your boyfriend,' I loved every day, and I thank him for being the best boyfriend and making me feel so beautiful."

Simply beautiful.

Lea went on to explain the meaning behind releasing Louder on March 4th and how the death of Cory influenced the direction of her album:

"Just think about it: we're going to 'March fo(u)rth.' We're going to march forth like a cannonball. I try my best to march forth and live my life as best as I can for me. I also feel an incredible, happy responsibility to keep the memory and light of [Cory, who] was the most amazing person. I'm so happy to make it my journey now to continue on and live my life as best as I can.

I set out to make a really pop-heavy album that was fun and empowering—I love Katy Perry and Kelly Clarkson! But then I found myself picking and writing these songs that were very emotional and dramatic. Louder has songs that express extreme love and some pain. I look at it and think, That was my year. I didn't record any songs that I didn't completely relate to."

Lea has been busily working on her solo album, but that doesn't mean she's forgetting those who have been there for here through the dark times.

She said about her Glee family:

"[The Glee cast] is the greatest group of people I have ever met in my entire life! We all lost Cory. I didn't think for one minute that being away from them was what I wanted. Being on the set of Glee is no more difficult than being at home and finding [Cory's] slippers under the bed. We had a life and a job together—it goes with you everywhere you go. You can't get away from grief. So I might as well be surrounded by the people I love and get to lean on them."

Surrounding yourself with close friends and the same people who also lost someone in their life definitely helps the grieving process.

Miz Michele continues to inspire us!

Oscars In Memoriam Leaves Out Glee's Cory Monteith, The Simpsons Marcia Wallace, & Many More

| Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadGleeCory MonteithOscars

cory monteith marcia wallace left out of oscars in memoriam

The Oscars always pays tribute to those talented and creative artists we lost throughout the year.

And every year some people unfortunately have to be left out of the In Memoriam.

This year, while we all honored Philip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Walker, and many more who were featured during the touching moment, some of our most beloved stars were left off the list.

Sadly, Cory Monteith, Marcia Wallace, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air's James Avery, Tom Clancy, Lisa Robin Kelly, Lee Thompson Young, Phil Everly, Phil Ramone, Lou Reed, Pete Seeger, Dennis Farina, Gary David Goldberg, Alicia Rhett, Alain Resnais, Jim Jacks, and Clive Burr were left out of the tribute.

And most oddly of all, Ruth Robinson Duccini from Wizard of Oz (which had a film tribute earlier in the night) and Alice Herz-Sommer, who was the subject of the Best Documentary Short-winning film The Lady in Number 6 and passed away this last week, were both not featured in the tribute.

It's unfortunate that anyone has to be left out, but everyone was included in the online In Memoriam.
