A standing ovation for Lea Michele, if you please. The Glee actress spoke bravely and beautifully about the passing of her off-screen boyfriend and co-star Cory Monteith for the first time this weekend as she took the stage to accept her Teen Choice Award for Best Comedic Actress. Wearing a double dose of pink dress by Oscar de la Renta with matching pointed heels and of course, her “Cory” necklace, Michele choked back tears as she shared a few words about her adoration for Monteith and dedicated her award to his memory. “So whether you knew him personally or just as Finn Hudson,” she concluded, “Cory reached out and he became a part of all of our hearts and that’s where he’ll stay forever.” Despite the devastating heartache Michele has surely been feeling since Monteith’s fatal overdose July 13th, the gorgeous actress radiated in her sweet number, and kept strong with her Glee co-stars supporting her by her side. Get the tissue box ready and check out the whole speech in the video from Sunday night.
