Glee Season 5 Filming To Begin, But Lea Michele Gives Co-Stars The Silent Treatment: Will Ratings Suffer After Cory Monteith Death?
By Staff Writer | July 25, 2013 12:23 PM EDT
"Glee" season 5 filming is ready to begin at the beginning August, but Lea Michele may not be ready to talk to her co-stars quite yet.
"Lea hasn't been in communication with a lot of people. She's only talking to a few confidants," a source tells Us Weekly. "They know that she needs to be by herself."

"The nighttime is when it's really difficult. Everyone's [made up] their schedules so there's always someone there with her. It's been like a horror movie, watching Lea crumble. She's always been so positive and happy, always smiling. Now her face is totally swollen from crying. She wavers between sitting down and writing a eulogy to sing at his memorial to total denial."
Despite her "Glee" co-stars and former co-stars paying tribute to Cory Monteith, Lea Michelle seems too fragile to handle other people right now. Which isn't a good sign considering season 5 filming is set to begin very soon.
"Ultimately, we made no decisions without consulting Lea. [Executive producer] Brad Falchuk and I talked to Lea and really asked her what she wanted to do," says "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy to TVLine.
"We laid out every possible option. And she was very adamant that she thought it was best for the cast and crew to get back together sooner [rather] than later so that mortgages could be paid and people could take care of their families. Cory was so beloved that she felt people really needed to be together in this time. So we sort of followed her lead."
With so much emotional rawness and awkwardness that could potentially come on the "Glee" season 5 filming experience, one has to wonder if the show will suffer in ratings.
"Glee" season 5 is set to return September 26, and only time will tell how Lea Michele will adapt to filming and her co-stars.
