Since the shocking death of Glee actor Cory Monteith, former girlfriend and co-star Lea Michele has spent much of 2013 out of the spotlight, grieving for the man she loved.

Today, she sat down for her most revealing interview yet on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“It’s certainly been a pretty rough year,” Michele admitted. “But I’ve been surrounded by such great people, such great family.”

One of those great people includes fellow actress Kate Hudson. Rumors of a feud between the two women ran rampant months earlier, but it was Hudson who opened up her home as a safe house to Lea in the wake of Monteith’s death.

“She was so wonderful to basically give me her home to myself and my family,” Michele said. “It was so helpful to just, basically, have a safe place to process, and just have a minute to just breathe before getting back to my house with just has a lot of memories and stuff. So being some place else to just have a moment was really nice.”

Michele and DeGeneres reminisced about Monteith’s life, including his own appearance on Ellen in December 2012 when he confirmed he and Lea were a couple.

“It’s one of my favorite memories,” Michele told DeGeneres. “I remember when he came home that night, he kind of puffed out his chest and he was like, ‘I talked about you on ‘Ellen’ today.’ I was so happy. He’s such a private person, and I literally lived every day of my life feeling like the luckiest girl in the whole world. I just thought he was the greatest man and so at that moment, that memory, it means so much to me.”
