Lea Michele is breaking her silence online after her "Glee" co- star and real-life boyfriend Cory Monteith died of an overdose earlier this month.

The actress posted Monday a photo of her and Monteith on Twitter, along with a message thanking her followers for "helping me through this time with your enormous love & support."

"Cory will forever be in my heart," Michele wrote.

Monteith was found dead July 13 in Vancouver, British Columbia. An autopsy revealed the 31-year-old actor died of an overdose of heroin and alcohol.

He and Michele played an on-again, off-again couple in the popular Fox series and were an off-screen couple for about a year.

Arnett proud of 4th season

Will Arnett hopes the mixed reviews of season 4 of "Arrested Development" will mellow out over time.

Speaking Monday at the annual Television Critics Association summer press tour, Arnett said he's "incredibly proud" of the show's recent new episodes and the cast is in discussions with Netflix to do more.

"I think we had to go dark (in tone). ... Audiences are so savvy now, and you have to do something that's different and make it interesting," the 43-year-old actor said.

The 15-episode fourth season of "Arrested Development," the award- winning show about the dysfunctional Bluth family, was posted to Netflix Inc. in May. Each episode focused on a different character, showing his or her point of view of an event that was later explained. There was much fanfare over the show's return, but not all fans were impressed with the format and story lines.

Arnett says working with Jason Bateman, who was often the "straight man" of "Arrested Development," taught him how to play it straight and reactionary in his upcoming CBS comedy, "The Millers," co-starring Beau Bridges, Margo Martindale and Jayma Mays.
