Some very surprising and sad news over the weekend...
Cory Monteith, who played heart throb Finn Hudson in the Fox hit "Glee," was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room on Saturday, police said. He was 31.
Monteith spent time in rehab this year, checking into a drug addiction treatment facility in late March. He had been frank about his struggles with substance abuse, telling Parade magazine in 2011 that he began using drugs at 13, and by 19 went into rehab after his mother and friends intervened.
It's always sad when someone passes, but especially a shame when someone so young and at the height of their career is suddenly taken by, most likely, their addiction to drugs.
He will be missed.
