Kristen Johnston Was Not Shocked By Cory Monteith’s Untimely End

| Filed under: DrugsR.I.P.Sad SadGleeCory Monteith

Cory Monteith's death may have come as a shock to many, but not to Kristen Johnston.

Uhh gurfriendd, we’re going to have to respectfully disagree with you on this one.

We NEVER expected our precious Glee hunk to die well before his prime!

But Kristen Johnston from 3rd Rock From The Sun doesn’t feel the same way about Cory Monteith’s tragic passing, and recently revealed her thoughts on the matter.

The actress spilled:

"Whatever happened, I'm sure it was somehow involved with his addiction. It's just terribly, terribly sad. However, it's completely not shocking to me."

Many were well aware that Cory was fighting some drug-related demons before his death, but he was just out of a seemingly successful rehab stint and his future looked long and bright.

Kristen claims even if that’s true, there are residual effects from drug use that can, and most likely did, come back and cause harm.

And now that the autopsy results are officially out, we are sad to admit that Johnston was 100% correct. It sounds like Cory had a brief relapse of heroine and alcohol abuse that led to this devastating tragedy.

    Heroine and heroin are two very different things!

    Well, it isn't. Just like it wouldn't be shocking if Lohan wound up the same way. The difference is this guy was totally likeable and an all around nice person. However, that doesn't make it less shocking, just much, much, much more sad.

    it was shocking yes we new about his past and that he was in rehab in April but saying that he always looked so healthy and happy he sort treatment and we thought he was back on track we didn't no the extent of his addiction such sad news his story ending this way but his death is only one part he brought happiness to many and helped so many he came across as a genuinely lovely guy thinking of those who love him

    no one is ever shocked when someone with an alcohol addiction dies, or heart disease caused by a food addiction. drugs aren't any different. all of these kill. buddy had the cash to get help where many dont. im not saying its not tragic…but totally preventable

    Well, she is kind of right. If you have a history of serious addiction it's a little less shocking than when someone who tries something for the first time overdoses and dies.

    "heroine" lol
    God this site is awful.

    To throw the rehab hankie around as if that is what it takes to live a sober life is such foolishness. When the public finally realizes that alcoholism and drug addiction KILL people, the folks lost in the battle will have a better chance. One drink or one hit is not within the capacity of the addict. We need to quit white washing the effects of addiction and tell the truth. If you are still using and abusing you will die

    A person with a heroin addiction overdoses. Shocking? No.

    I have in recent months done my best not to come onto your site anymore and it is exactly because of stupid fucked up stories like this - of course it was not entirely shocking - Perez why are you such an twat?

  9. LookatYou says – reply to this


    Oh give it a rest. This guy didn't have a brief relapse. He had a brief sobriety. Because you are lusting after this guy and think he was cute, you're trying to turn him into some sort of victim. He was a stone cold drug addict. Ever heard of a functional addict? He just didn't stop before he killed himself.

    Do you really respectfully disagree Perez? Then you're really really DUMB or really really FAKE. YES WE ALL LIKED THE MAN BUT WE ARE SMART. I guess smarter THAN STUPID PEREZ. DRUGS KILL

    Re: Caine – agreed! Most of his post can be found earlier on other blogs.

    get your head out of your ass… he was a junkie.

    Re: adg100 – Not to wish anything bad to happen to Lindsay Lohan but I think what's shocking about her case is that she's still strong enough to return to old bad habits, while Cory, who has been relatively sane, died.

    and LOL at "heroine."

  14. 14

    Must want attention . . .

  15. RAC says – reply to this


    I'm not shocked either. He was 31. Not many celebs with addictions make it past that age. The body can't handle it anymore.

  16. Sarah says – reply to this


    you continue to spell heroin wrong.

  17. 17

    It was very shocking. A lot of stars go to rehab and don't die. Like Ben Affleck. Since he was taking the time and energy to try to get better, I wasn't expecting this. It makes me wonder if he relapsed and since he'd been clean for a while, what was once normal dosage was just way too much now.

    I'm mad at him for Lea Michele, though. My heart is just broken for her…that he ultimately chose the drugs over her. Over life itself. She has to live with the fact that most of her career involved him, the love of her life. Watching anything from Glee is just horribly depressing now.

    This guy obviously had alot of hidden problems, never shared but "dealt with" Sometimes you feel there is nowhere to go but to where you feel is familiar! RIP Cory! xxx

    An addict has a very strong connection with death. As bad as it sounds it is true,happens everyday. You can be loved by many and hated by few.It is a problem that many can not shake even with much help. Sad but true.

    Re: LookatYou – Yup! What you said.

  21. 21

    I wish I didn't but I do agree with her. He's been in and out of rehab for a good chunk of his adult life and while it looked like on the outside he was doing better, we all are on the outside. Every addict has to struggle with sobriety for the rest of their lives…and one misstep can lead them back down that hole and in this case it was enough to kill him. Sad and tragic but not shocking.

    Was "heroine" spelled this way as a play on words? If so that's fucked up.
    This is terribly sad, but not shocking at all, and you're an idiot for saying it is.
