Cory Monteith

I was in bed, half-awake, on Sunday morning when I found out that  Cory Monteith, one of the lead actors on “Glee,” had died suddenly of an apparent drug overdose the day before. Monteith was never a celebrity that I would have expected to die at 31. Even though I knew he had struggled with drug addiction and done several stints in rehab, he didn’t have that reputation for reckless living like Lindsay Lohan or Justin Bieber do.

Julie had the presence of mind to throw up a quick post on The Frisky. But my thoughts were firmly fixated on the actor’s family and friends and his girlfriend, “Glee” co-star Lea Michele. I kept thinking about Michele, who was apparently vacationing in Mexico when her boyfriend died in a hotel room in Vancouver, getting that phone call telling her Monteith had died.

I forgot about how I personally find Lea Michele really annoying and have never, ever wanted to see a movie she is in or read a magazine interview with her. But in that moment, I felt for her. I really felt for her. Because I have been waiting for that same phone call my entire life. Keep reading »

  • Demi Moore was taken to a Los Angeles hospital on Monday night after paramedics responded to a 911 call at her home.  The night before, People claims Demi Moore spend a “late night out” with her 23-year-old daughter Rumer Willis, where she was seen grinding on the butt of one of Rumer’s “90210″ co-stars, unbottoning his shirt and “stickling his bare chest playfully.” Sources say Demi has a substance abuse problem  — although which substance is unclear — and is checking into a facility for care. A statement from her rep said, “Because of the stresses in her life right now, Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health.  She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends.” She has also dropped out of plans to play Gloria Steinem in the “Lovelace” biopic. Oh dear. We like Demi and wish her the best! [TMZ, People, US Weekly] Keep reading »

Watch This Drunk Guy Dancing To “Single Ladies”

Usually, if a video indicates there’s a drunk person dancing in it, I don’t watch it, because who wants to watch one more drunk person dancing like a fool? But this one is a must-see. This dude who had way too many is possessed by the spirit of Beyonce at the Minnesota State Fair. Busting a series of eye-popping moves to “Single Ladies,” he uses his water cooler as a prop, earns a few dollar bills, and ends up getting busted by the police. It is an amazing spectacle. (NB: We here at The Frisky do not condone drinking to excess, because if you do, you, too, may end up looking like a crazed loon in a YouTube video.) [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

On “Intervention,” A Young Woman Snorts Drugs With A Tampon Tube

I used to watch A&E’s addiction series, “Intervention,” religiously. After a while, though, I couldn’t take it anymore. I appreciate the struggles of addiction, but the stories are so often so heartbreaking. Watching people in the throes of intense addiction is agonizing. Every once in a while, though, I tune in again. This Monday, I watched an episode featuring Ashley, whose drug-addicted mother handed her over to her aunt and uncle when she was a child. She became addicted to black tar heroin and Xanax after her grandfather died. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the worst of it.
