Good lord that is horribly sad. RIP :(

KellyLynn said...

Poor guy . My heart goes put to his family.

Sherry R. said...

This is very sad, so very young.

strawberrygirl said...

He seemed like such a good soul. So sad.

Pip said...

I feel so sad for his family and friends, even Lea Michelle, and I can't stand her.

Having a loved one succumb to their addiction is gut wrenching. I really hope if this was drug related, the posts about it here and elsewhere, are kept to a minimum. Let the guy rest in peace.

Jessica said...

Extremely sad. He was involved with lots of charity work, seemed like a good guy.

Nancy said...

This is very sad. I never watched Glee. Sorry to read that a talented young man has passed at such an early age.

Brittany said...

I was reading awhile back a few stories from people who had met him. And everyone ha nothing but wonderful things to say about him, from fans to people who had worked with him. He seemed like such a gentle yet troubled soul.

MissInfo said...

RIP Cory!

I was not a fan of Glee, but damn, this is sad.

Count Jerkula said...

Where are the friggin Sunday Reveals? Or is this just turning into an obituary blog?

Renoblondee said...

I am so sad about this. I do watch Glee and for some reason he has always pulled at my heartstrings. By all accounts Cory was gentle, kind and wonderful. I feel very depressed today. My thoughts are with his family, friends, and Lea.

I woke up at 5 and saw that was breaking news on my phone. Was utterly shocked! RIP :(

My child suffers severe depression and is in a treatment facility as we speak . Many of the other patients are heavily addicted to drugs at her age and even younger. It has been such a sobering experience to see kids beginning rehab and the rate of those who are repeat patients. 2 of the kids had been back upwards of 15 times. I can't begin to understand how that can happen?

As a responsible and loving parent ,my child's circumstances are heartbreaking for us. We are blessed there are no substance abuse issues in our situation.

Addiction can be a life long battle. Some people never win the war. Tragic loss..

Ann Nah Nah Mess said...

@Count: This is mother-fucking serious, somber shit. Where else other than a gossip site are we supposed to talk about this? Yer gonna git yer hand slapped fer sure. xoxo, Kym

Nutty_Flavor said...

@Pip, I disagree that people should 'keep discussion to a minimum' if his death was caused by drug or alcohol abuse.

Discussing what happened is how people learn to avoid his mistakes. After Health Ledger's death - which has been said to have been caused by him taking some sleeping medication, then getting groggy and confused and taking the medication again, and then perhaps a third time - I've made a careful practice of keeping all my sleeping medications in a separate room. I have to get out of bed, turn on a light, etc. to get at them.

If Cory combined meds, misused meds in a some other dangerous way, or had some other 'teachable moment' for everyone who uses alcohol and medication both legally and illegally, then discussing it is the best thing we can do.

RIP Cory

Halfsicilian said...

This is unbelievably sad. I woke up with my 2 year old at 4am and couldn't sleep after reading about this. He seemed like a truly nice guy.

V said...

Very sad news. I didn't watch Glee, but Cory Monteith seemed like a good soul...RIP

phoenix said...

I am sooo sad about this. I really liked him. No one ever had a bad word to say about him, almost unheard of among celebrities.

RIP Angel

auntliddy said...

Its a damn shame and so frustrating in that its almost impossible to help an addict. Rest in peace and good journey, my friend v

Brenda L said...

WTF???

Count Jerkula said...

@Miss Mess: You can slap my as if I've been a bad boy. You can slap my chest if I'm in the corner and you yell "WOOOOOOO!" You can slap my face if you are on top and feelin feisty. Don't you dare slap my hand though.

Pip said...

@Nutty, look at the latest blind reveal on here. This is what I mean. It is unnecessary.

Basil said...

This is a sad one. Poor guy.

Bonheur said...

Very sad news. RIP Cory.

Ann Nah Nah Mess said...

Count: Me??? NEVER. After all we've shared, the tender moments, whispered secrets in the dark, I'm hurt you would think I'd even consider it.... Sad face. You're my best friend on this site...

Kloie said...

This makes me sad.

B Smears said...

BFF's? (Best fisting friends) nawww! How sweet!

Ann Nah Nah Mess said...

B: For life!

Count Jerkula said...

@Smears: I've never taken more than 2 fingers.

@Miss Mess: Awww, that is sweet, Baby. If you were here, I'd press your head against my chest, pet yer hair and rub yer back. After a few warm moments, I'd pat yer ass and tell ya to get back to trollin.

girl77007 said...

@Count and @ Nah Nah: I'm fucking jealous as hell and will slap both of you!

Count Jerkula said...

@Girl77007: Gotta have some meat to make a sammich. You in?

Marieeee said...

So unbelievably sad. RIP, Cory.

girl77007 said...

@Count: Dont even have to ask twice

nevarmore said...

aw damn... I hate when young talented people are gone too soon. His family must be devastated, my condolences to all his family and friends. Horrible news.

Ann Nah Nah Mess said...

Thanks Count-honey-sweetie-boo bear. Drying my tears and getting ready to go back to the front lines.

Ann Nah Nah Mess said...

Girl77007: There's always room for more!

girl77007 said...

Mmm, sammiches. I'll bring the condiments. And the slappy hands.

PugsterMom said...

I'm sorry your daughter is suffering so much. My prayers for your family.

Ann Nah Nah Mess said...

Count: I think we're starting to grow on people, yes? Girl: Welcome to our little club! xoxo, Kym

girl77007 said...

Oh, I've been eyeing y'all up for a while now. It's just unfair to no longer be in the general area of Senor Count (and you?)... life works out funny that way.

Snowy Owls said...

This is an article I just read about him and his struggle, it's shocking how insightful he was yet still could not shake the monkey off his back.

Cee Kay said...

@Pip I COMPLETELY disagree. If his death was drug/alcohol related (and I'm sure it was), we damned well SHOULD be talking about it so people might start to get that the party life is not all fun and games.

Count Jerkula said...

@Girl77007: I'd prefer you brought dessert fixins, like Bananas, U-Bet Chocolate Syrup, Whipped Cream and Maraschino Cherries. We can play hide the cherries or hide the banana, which ever you ladies are into.

Pip said...

Cee Kay, perhaps I should've been a bit clearer. If they want to use this to show the dangers of drugs and alcohol, that is fine. The first reveal today was about this man drinking on vacation.

He hasn't been dead 24 hours. I find it sickening using that info, the morning after his death, to get more clicks for this site. I realize this is a gossip site, but I am allowed to be disgusted over certain things here. That reveal is one of them.

timebob said...

I feel terrible for saying this (but not really) I think Lea is going to milk this for all the publicity she can. If they were taking separate vacations things might of been off between the two.

Though I don't think she will reach the level of Michelle Williams reinventing their relationship after Heath died publicity tour per movie.

mannyv said...

My guess is he did his last hit of heroin. For some reason heroin users OD on the last hit they take before quitting. I guess they load up an extra-large dose or something?

Very few other drugs will kill experienced users. He didn't sound like he took pills, etc.

girl77007 said...

@Count: Dessert works better for me anyway. Done.

Ann Nah Nah Mess said...

Girl: All you have to do is close your eyes and click your heels and you'll be immediately transported to our den of debauchery and depravity. It's just that easy!

girl77007 said...

I have ruby red slippers and everything! There's no place like the den, there's no place like the den...

Count Jerkula said...

@Girl: If you have a Dorothy outfit, I'll start walking to you now. By the time I get there, I should be hairy and stinky enough to pull off the Cowardly Lion.

Profane Ghostie Burrito Whore said...

Ann Nah Nah Mess = canopener = kympossible

Same trolling patterns.

Halfsicilian said...

@deree I'm sending prayers and good vibes to your daughter and family. I wish you all the best.

Julie said...

I met him when the glee cast performed at the White House. He was the only cast member mingling with the crowd and signing autographs. He was so unbelievably nice and seemed genuinely happy to be there.

Count Jerkula said...

@Profane et al: That is the order I'd do em in, too.

Ann Nah Nah Mess said...

I'm sure as hell not going to be wicked witch. I'm way too hot to pull that off. And Glenda? Hahaha! Going against type would be an understatement of epic proportions.

Ann Nah Nah Mess said...

Profane: I hope this finally puts that whole fucking MARCIE ridiculousness to rest!!!

Ann Nah Nah Mess said...

Count: you get to do 'em all at the same time. Yummy.

Ann Nah Nah Mess said...

And I gotta add, I'm super stoked to have my own pattern! It's like getting a china set named after me! How about "Morning Flower", or "Sunset Pearl"?

Count Jerkula said...

Miss Mess: Are you talented enough to switch schticks mid coitus? Or maybe each input triggers a certain personality. I think can opener should be the anal queen, way more rage than the others.

Come on, be Glenda. You and Dorothy could have some fun with your Magic Wand while I try and build up enough c-c-courage to join in.

WareCat said...

I can see these chicks going all Fatal Attraction on the Count if he gave up the D.

Count Jerkula said...

@Ware Cat: Naaaaaah ;)

deree said...

Thank you! She comes home tomorrow. 2nd trip in 6 weeks so we really hope this time was more effective. A suicidal teen is something I wish on no parent.

Ann Nah Nah Mess said...

Count, I'll do it for you. I'll do anything for you. Wondering if I should change my handle to "Sybil". She had way more personalities than I do. I could conjure up some real crazy shit. Maybe some stuff YOU haven't even thought of

Harry Knuckles said...

Johnny Carson said it best years ago: "Hollywood eats it's young".

audrey said...

It is always sad when someone young loses their battle with their addictions. RIP.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Cory died in a hotel. John Belushi and Chris Farley both died in hotels. Last June, Lindsay nearly died in a hotel. Some crazy stuff happening in hotels. I gave up on Glee after season 1 - except for the occasional peek to look at the ridiculously hot Naya. Cory seemed like a good guy who knew how lucky he was to have the job he had.

Ann Nah Nah Mess said...

Del Riser said...

This is really sad. I liked his character on Glee, and from all accounts he was a very sweet individual. My prayers to his friends and family and to all who are suffering from their addictions.

car54 said...

I'm sad about this. I saw him on that Bravo Actor's Studio show when the Glee cast was on and he seemed like he had a lot of sadness in his past.

Such a young man with a bright future, lost--I hope he is at peace.

85134943 said...

Never watched Glee, but I did know of him due to the success of the show. I was completely nonplussed by the news of his death. He was incredibly young, and although I never really saw an interview or paid that much attention to him, I never got the impression that this was something to be expected - despite his struggles with substance dependency and abuse.

It truly saddens me that someone would lose their life so young and so tragically. I can only imagine how his loved ones must feel at this very moment. My heart goes out to them, and I hope they'll manage to garner the strength that they need to get through this. Much luck to them all, and may Cory Monteith rest peacefully.

Portland Foodie said...

I read somewhere that consuming some of these drugs nowadays is extremely dangerous. Explains why we still have all the aging rockers but losing young people at an alarming rate. So sad!

Stylemaverick said...

This news surprised and saddened me. I knew Cory had some problems, but I never anticipated this. TWLOHA founder Jamie Tworkowski wrote a blog post when Amy Winehouse passed and I think it's also very fitting for this sad news. I'm mobile and can't find the actual blog post, nor can I make this click, but here's a site that has the full text.

erika said...

rip corey- set your passage toward the light

and deree, a prayer for you and your son/family. no parent should have to endure that kind of struggle. I pray your son battles n overcomes those demons so he/your family can enjoy life.

lostathome said...

I'm reay shocked about this. I loved the first two seasons of Glee. And he seemed like a genuinely nice guy. So sad that he couldn't overcome his demons. So young. I really was not expecting this one.

Diana G said...

I've never watched Glee but, knew of him through magazines and gossip sites. I saw the news on TMZ and it really made me so sad. He was so young and seemed like a good person. RIP.

Gabby said...

I'm so sad about this. I stopped watching Glee years ago, but Cory always seemed like such a nice and a genuinely good guy who unfortunately battled some demons. Such a devastating loss!

KellyLynn said...

I hope this time helped, too -- it is never easy when a loved one is going through this. Warm thoughts for you and your family.

lc said...

When a tragedy likeness happens, my heart hurts so much.
I feel survivor guilt. I made it out of my addiction alive.
I wish Cory had too. And also Amy, Heath, Kurt, Whitney, AnnaNicole....the list goes on and on. Rest in Peace now beautiful ones.

lc said...

not but *like this*. Sorry

Fluffy White Clouds said...

So sad and shocking. Was a huge Glee fan, especially the first two seasons. Even saw them on Glee tour front row VIP in Las Vegas. Such a talented guy. Gonna be so painful for his family and friends...Glee will be really weird without him. Can the show even go on? I can't imagine Lea getting over this for a long time. I hope he is in a better place. Rest in peace.

NaughtyNurse said...

Holy shit. This is incredibly sad.

Anna Nonymous said...

HOOOOOLEEEEE F'ING SH#@!

Rose said...

This is very sad even though I know him from a couple seasons of Glee. It shocked me, maybe because I was reading reveals about him posted and then read this which was a little tacky since the reveal would've had to be put up after the RIP.

He obviously knew he had addiction problems and was fighting them even if it wasn't sticking. Peace to his family.

Ruby said...

So sad. My dad was an addict until only recently, always thought he would overdose.RIP Cory. 31 is way to young

Goodnight said...

I didn't expect this. I know there has been quite a bit of talk about Cory drinking after rehab but I have to wonder if maybe what killed him was returning to drugs. A lot of people OD and die when they've been clean and then suddenly pick up where they left off with the drug use. Their bodies can't tolerate the change.

I don't think the issue with Heath Ledger was the Ambien - it was mixing it with other drugs. Assuming he was prescribed 2 tablets and he did indeed get confused and take 4 more, that wouldn't have killed him, even if he weren't a long-time Ambien user (which he apparently).

I take Ambien and while people react differently to drugs, I have certainly never forgetten I've taken them. I might decide to take more because I'm not asleep yet (I suspect this is what Heath did), but I don't forget. Most Ambien-related fatalities happen when people mix it with alcohol. Ambien already makes you do weird things, but mixing it with other drugs and alcohol is a recipe for disaster.

AKM said...

So sad to lose someone so young and talented. RIP Cory.

deree, blessings to your daughter and your family. I've been in treatment three times, so I know it's tough for both a client AND her family. I promise, though, that there WILL be brighter days ahead. She will probably still struggle at times, but the good times DO happen and those of us with MI learn to really appreciate them as they come. Stay strong for her and I hope she can do the same.

Let's all try to love each other a little more this week, eh? Things like this are a good reminder to do so, I think.

Chris Farley died in a condo.

Chris Farley died in a condo.

Brittany said...

I catch your drift. So many people have died in hotels, it's almost like the epitome of loneliness. John Belushi, Janis, Whitney, Anna Nicole....the list goes on. And then when you think of how many other people possibly died in hotels. It's really creepy and depressing. It makes me want to sleep in my car.

Vicki E said...

Hi,
Sorry for your situation, I haven't commented here for ages, but I just wanted to say, a really good book which has helped my more than words can say, is 'the power of now', by Eckhart Tolle

Vicki E said...

I believe that you can never have too many tools when trying to deal with depression, anxiety etc.
I wish her well, and hope this helps x
