Lea Michele says she was happy to return to the Glee set after boyfriend Cory Monteith's death to the love and support of her caring costars.

"All I know is that Glee is my home," the 27-year-old actress told E! News last night at the L'Oreal Women of Worth event in NYC. "They're my family and it just made sense that we would all want to be back together so that we have each other for support and I love everyone there so, so very much."

Michele says she's also happy to be back in her hometown for the holiday season. She added, "Absolutely, I'm so happy to be in New York right now with my mom and my dad, to get to see some of my family."

Meanwhile, Michele teamed up with L'Oreal for last night's bash to celebrate women. "This is such a beautiful event, it's so inspiring what L'Oreal does," she dished. "The slogan for L'Oreal is ‘Because you're worth it' and tonight, I just think it totally encapsulates that whole message. All of these women are so incredible in what they do and I'm really honored to be here."

Michele is equally excited for her upcoming debut solo album Louder and new book Brunette Ambition.

"I've been working on both Louder and Brunette Ambition for the past year now," Michele gushed, adding, "so to finally have the opportunity for people to hear and to read the things that I've been working on...it's so awesome."
