"Glee" Star Cory Monteith is Dead
Actor CORY MONTEITH was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room on Saturday. He was only 31 years old.
Cory . . . who played Finn on "Glee" . . . was found by hotel staff at around noon, after he missed check-out time. He'd been dead for several hours.
There's no official word on the cause of death, and police say there were no signs of foul play. The obvious suspect here is a DRUG OVERDOSE.
Cory has talked about his substance abuse problems before, and even said his family held an intervention for him when he was 19. Earlier this year, he checked himself into rehab.
The night before his death, Cory was hanging out with friends in his room. Then they went out, and he returned early Saturday morning by himself.
Sources say Cory was in Vancouver to visit his mother.

Jenny McCarthy is Dating Donnie Wahlberg
Here's a random celeb hookup: JENNY MCCARTHY is dating NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK stud DONNIE WAHLBERG.
(If it matters to you, Donnie likes to consider himself an actor now. He's currently playing a detective on the CBS police drama "Blue Bloods".)
A source says, quote, "They recently started dating and are having a lot of fun. They had a blast 4th of July hanging out with a bunch of their friends."
The romance apparently started back in March, when Donnie appeared on Jenny's VH1 series, "The Jenny McCarthy Show". They sucked on red lollipops together while discussing dirty talk in the bedroom.
Discussing the episode, Jenny said, quote, "It gets steamy. I mean like really steamy. Being turned on by a guy is always fun but to have it legitimately happen to you on TV is to be turned back into a 12-year-old."

Demi Lovato Dissed Justin Bieber Twice During "X Factor" Auditions
During "X Factor" auditions last week, DEMI LOVATO dissed JUSTIN BIEBER. Twice.
It happened on Wednesday on the USC campus. First, a contestant was giving off a bad attitude, and Demi called him on it. First she told him the music industry already has too many artists with bad attitudes and then she added, quote, "We don't need another little punk running the streets."
Then, when another contestant did a great job singing the Bieber song "As Long As You Love Me", Demi told him, quote, "Well finally someone can sing the song the way it was meant to be sung."
(As I probably don't have to point out, Demi is best friends with Justin's on-again, off-again girlfriend SELENA GOMEZ.)
