Cory Monteith died of an accidental drug and alcohol overdose, British Columbia Coroners Service confirmed Tuesday, July 16 in a statement. Found dead at age 31 at his hotel room this past Saturday, the Glee actor "died of a mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol," the press release reveals, citing an autopsy and toxicological testing. "There is no evidence to suggest Mr. Monteith's death was anything other than a most-tragic accident," the report continues.
Royal birth plan! A detailed plan is in place for when pregnant Kate Middleton goes into labor. The palace staff is "on call every day and night in July for this," explains a palace insider to Us Weekly. "There is nothing left to prepare or plan for." As soon as Prince William's wife feels her first contraction, she'll alert her private secretary, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, who will then ring Middleton's doctor Marcus Setchell on his palace-issued mobile.

Stacy Keibler has every intention of remaining friends with her ex-boyfriend George Clooney, whom she recently split with following a two-year courtship. "There's nothing really dramatic that happened, so it's all good," the model and Maryland native told Extra on Monday, July 15. (Even so, a source recently told Us Weekly that the former long-distance couple hadn't "had sex in months" before their breakup.) "I'm someone that's always lived the present moment. I always look at the positive on everything," Keibler, 33, added.
In the wake of Cory Monteith's shocking death on Saturday, July 13, it turns out that the bigger surprise is that not everyone is in mourning. The Westboro Baptist Church, a Kansas-based extremist group known for its very vocal anti-gay sentiments, announced plans to protest the Glee actor's funeral in a series of disturbing, vicious tweets on Tuesday, July 16. "PRAISE GOD ALMIGHTY for killing Cory Monteith -- a wicked f-- enabling sinner!" the church wrote on its Twitter account.
