Lea Michele and Cory Monteith were a couple in real life as well as on screen in Glee, so the impact of his loss has hit her doubly hard when returning to the set to film the show’s tribute episode for Cory and his character, Finn. Still, she’s glad to be there because at least the cast (minus Dianna Agron – she’s NOT WELCOME!) have each other for solace.
From TV Week Australia:
“I feel like, for me personally, I’ve lost two people: Cory and Finn,” she tells TV WEEK Australia.
“We had a beautiful memorial for Cory in the auditorium and some of the cast members sang and people spoke about him. It only felt right that we would do the same thing for Finn, so I felt it was very therapeutic.”
Asked if she ever considered quitting the show, Lea responds, “Everyone is asking: ‘Is it hard to do this? Is it hard to be back at work?’, but the truth is it’s no harder at work than it is in life so we might as well all be together as a family supporting each other to get through this together.”
Well, I’m glad she could put on a brave face and that she’s finding some comfort in being back to routine. However, I’ve been side eyeing her over the Dianna Agron thing for a few days, admittedly – I like Dianna and y’all know my feelings only recently softened towards Lea (and not really for nice reasons – I just feel really sympathetic), so she’s inching her way back to my shit list (which I’m sure she cares about). I hope everyone can just find some peace, in whatever way that comes about.

I think I’ve made it pretty clear that whatever love I had for Glee is dead. It’s dead, and Lea Michele is the one who murdered it. But, for once, this isn’t about Lea. This is about one of the very few things I still cherish from the show: Dianna Agron.
On her new website, You and Me and Charlie: “It’s mainly arts-based, but it’s also a forum for people to love and support each other. I realized that just by posting something, I can really influence someone’s day.”
On her Glee alter ego: “Especially in the beginning, [reporters] really wanted us to be like our characters, to simplify things… I was playing a well put-together popular character, and they were trying to push me into it, like that had been my entire life. And the whole time, my teenage self was crying at that.”
On her actual high school persona:
“We watched Practical Magic and all of those movies, like The Craft. My friend’s mom had all these Stevie Nicks outfits, and we’d gypsy dance in her living room and have seances. We’d mix all these things from the refrigerator together and we’d look at it and be like, ‘This means you’re going to find true love when you’re 18 years old’.”
On her Glee audition:
“They were going to scrap the character but Robert [Ulrich, the casting director] asked for one more chance. I went in and read, and they called me bak two days later, and he told me to come back and straighten my hair, and wear something sexy. I was like, ‘First of all, what is…”sexy”?’…I went to like, a CVS, and bought a straightener and straightened it at Starbucks.”
On Quinn Fabray’s future: “Essentially, I’m a senior, so, I’ll probably graduate this year.”
And that’s why I want my new BFF to be Dianna Agron. So we could buy new beauty products down at the drug store and try them out at Starbucks and then go home and make love potions. If that doesn’t sound like the best afternoon to you, well, then you’re not invited to the seance.

OK, so I absolutely hate the hair – it looks dirty and you can tell by the way it blows in the breeze that going this pink totally ruined most of her hair, but the dress? I am definitely kind of loving. Redeeming factor!
Also, since I’m being kind of picky on Dianna today, that new nose doesn’t really do her a whole lot of justice. Seriously, I saw a picture of her a few days ago and I had a hard time figuring out who she was (not that I had an easy time pre-nose job separating her from the other chick from Glee). I wasn’t proud of eventually being able to identify her, but hey. I guess that’s an occupational hazard, right?

So in case you guys missed it, Dianna Agron wore a t-shirt this past weekend during a ‘Born This Way‘ performance at a Glee live tour thing and it said ‘likes girls.’ Quite predictably, the entire fucking world freaked. the fuck. out.
No, but seriously: first of all, who cares whether or not Dianna Agron likes chicks. A lot of chicks like chicks. I’m glad she’s using her star to spread awareness that not all people are heterosexual, because those who vapidly believe that they’re better because they’re attracted to someone of the opposite sex need a reality check in the form of a big, fat dick up their ass. But the ‘OMG! WTF! LOL! WTH!’ response that goes with this kind of stuff is so sixth grade. Seriously. Move on.
Dianna went to her blog to write this (really long, but TOTALLY WORTHWHILE) statement:
