Actor Cory Monteith was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room over the weekend. Cory played Finn on “Glee”was found by hotel staff at around noon, after he missed check-out time. Autopsy scheduled for today. The 31-yr old was hanging with friends the night before – but came back solo. Friends who talked to him the day before say he was in great spirits and happy. Even looking forward to jet-skiing this week when he got back to California. His girlfriend Lea Michelle is said to be devastated.
Many are suspecting drug overdose – he 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.
Meanwhile – more celebrity scoop for you…
Oprah has scored the FIRST post-rehab interview with LINDSAY LOHAN. She is supposed to be a free woman July 31. Theinterview will tape sometime next month, and will air shortly afterward on Oprah’s OWN network. So, how did Oprah land the interview? Well, for one, she’s Oprah. But more importantly – Lindsay is getting some work out of it. Oprah is giving Lindsay her own eight-episode show. It’s being called a “documentary series,” and it will premiere sometime next year.
And today is the big debut of Kris Jenner’s show – it could also be the big reveal of her new granddaughter. Time will tell. She posted this picture of herself with a ‘baby’ on facebook and twitter – with the message ‘you never know who will stop by our show’ – but TMZ says its not Kim and Kanye’s kid. Its actually the hair and makeup girls kid. Kim & Kanye have been pretty clear they dont want their baby in the spotlight.
Two big Hollywood wedding this weekend.
Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez got married over the weekend. The ceremony went down on Saturday at a chateau in France. About 60 people attended. There’s no word if any celebrities were there.
Probably not – most of the big names were at another wedding here in in California. Jimmy Kimmel and his girlfriend Molly McNearney got married Saturday at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa. This Jimmy’s second trip down the aisle. Molly is one of the head writers for his show. Some of the celebs who were there – Matt Damon of course – Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi, Kristin Bell and Dax Sheppard, Kelly Ripa, and Gabourey Sidibe – who showed up in a wedding dress as a prank.
it was a close race at the box office this weekend. But Despicable Me 2 took the top spot for the second straight week. Adam Sandler’s Grown Ups 2 took 2nd place. A little more than 2-million separated these two flicks. Pacific Rim was a close 3rd. Rounding off the top 5 – The Heat and The Lone Ranger.
Jenny McCarthy has much to celebrate. She has a new man in her life. First – I hear she is dating Donnie Wahlberg of NKOTB. They started this romance when he was a guest on her VH1 show. Second – hopefully she will have time for her new romance – because she has a new job. Barbara Walters confirmed this morning that Jenny is taking over for Joy Behar in September on The View.
While Richie Sambora has been taking a break fro Bon Jovi. He has been spending some quality time working on his fashion line. Looks like its paying off. The Nikki Rich line just closed a deal with Home Shopping Network. Here’s the twist – they are distributing music on the clothes. Each piece of clothing will have an authorized code for music that you can download from your computer. We will let you know when you can start shopping.
Adam Lambert taking over for Freddy Mercury again? Its very possible. Brian May hinted that the band is ready to welcome back the American Idol alum with open arms. Adam rocked a series of sold-out shows overseas about a year ago. They are not talking a tour – yet – but hoping for an on-stage reunion for a TV event or something.
JK Rowling has become her own ghost writer. Did you know she had a book out since April? No one did. She used a different name. The book is called ‘The Cuckoo’s Calling’ and it written by Robert Galbraith. It got decent reviews – decent sales. But someone figured out it was her behind the bogus name – and the Harry Potter author has come clean. She says she wanted to see how a new book would do without her name attached. No hype – no expectation. Since the reveal – the book sales have gone up 500-thsnd percent.
