Soon after reuniting with her Glee family, Michele broke her silence on her boyfriend's passing, thanking her fans for their "enormous love & support," on Instagram on July 29, adding, "Cory will forever be in my heart." Weeks later – after returning to set and even stepping out for pal Jamie-Lynn Sigler's baby shower – she dedicated her Aug. 11 Teen Choice Award win to Monteith. Michele promised fans, "We're going to get through this together." In a subsequent interview with TV Week Australia, she called shooting Glee's tribute to Finn "very therapeutic."
