RIP: ‘Glee’ star Cory Monteith

RIP: ‘Glee’ star Cory Monteith

Oh gosh, there’s very sad and tragic news to report tonight … Glee star Cory Monteith (who played Finn Hudson) was found dead earlier tonight possibly from an overdose (details are still sketchy right now) in a Vancouver hotel at the age of just 31. I’m completely shocked yet we all knew he had issues with substance abuse (a topic he was quite frank about) and recently completed a stint in rehab. I’ve been such a huge fan of Glee from the very start and I’m just stunned right now, my heart goes out to his family and friends, his girlfriend and co-star Lea Michele along with the rest of the Glee cast. :*(
