'Glee' won the 2013 Teen Choice Award for Choice TV Show Comedy, with their star Lea Michele nabbing a surfboard of her own for Choice TV Star Comedy. The cast took their opportunity in the spotlight to dedicate their awards to the late Cory Monteith, as well as to their supporters following his death.
The sudden death of 'Glee' actor Cory Monteith took the world by surprise and led many to believe that the star was leading a double life: One of sobriety when he worked and stayed stateside with girlfriend Lea Michele, and one of hard drugs and partying when he went to his hometown of Vancouver.
However, Monteith's friends from the Canadian city are crying foul on those rumors, saying he was surrounded only by sober friends the night of his death.
'Glee' paid a brief but moving tribute in a title card to Cory Monteith this week, but the series is planning a much larger-scale send off for the actor who was taken too soon. It was debated whether or not they should address the drug addiction that killed Monteith within the episode, but producers ultimately decided to touch on the rather touchy topic.
Lea Michele showed another sign of returning to some sort of normalcy after retreating from the public eye to grieve and mourn the loss of her boyfriend and co-star Cory Monteith. (She needed alone time and we don't blame her.)
A few days after tweeting a photo of her late BF and saying he will live in her heart forever, she was spotted in L.A., wearing a necklace with his name on it.
