Shain Gandee, the former trash collector who found fame as the star of the MTV reality hit “Buckwild,” was found dead along with his uncle and an unidentified person in a truck in West Virginia Monday morning.  Shain was last heard from around 3 a.m. on Sunday at a local bar,  when he and his uncle told people they planned to go 4-wheeling. The truck where they were found was stuck deep in mud, leading investigators to think the three died of carbon monoxide poisoning. “Our thoughts and prayers are with them,” MTV said in a statement, saying Shain “touched everyone he met.”

“Glee” star in rehab
“Glee” star Cory Monteith, 30, has “voluntarily admitted himself to a treatment facility” his representative told People magazine. The reason for the rehab stay is unspecified. He reportedly checked in Monday morning. Monteith, 30, plays Finn Hudson on the hit Fox series. His girlfriend and costar on the series, Lea Michele, 26,  gave the following quote to People: “I love and support Cory and will stand by him through this. I am grateful and proud he made this decision.” Monteith has struggled with substance abuse in the past.  In a 2011 interview with Parade magazine, Monteith admitted to a rehab stay when he was just 19.  “I burned a lot of bridges,” he said. “I was out of control.” At the time, he said he had a “serious problem” and was using “anything and everything, as much as possible.”  “Glee” is currently filming their latest season and has two more episodes left to shoot. Deadline Hollywood reports that filming will continue and Finn’s absence will be explained through plot lines.

Tick-tock goes the Bieber
The clock is ticking on Justin Bieber‘s career, according to top music manager Peter Mensch, who reps acts like Metallica and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Mensch doesn’t see much of a future for the Canadian pop star after a month of hospitalizations, canceled concerts and dust-ups with the paparazzi. “His manager, Scooter Braun, is scared s—less. I don’t know what Bieber’s problem is. His career is over in three years anyway,” Mensch tells the Sun. “I’d take Bieber to the woodshed and spank him.”

Schwarzenegger and Shriver: No drama?
There didn’t seem to be much tension between Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver when the separated couple sat down this weekend an Easter brunch at a Santa Monica restaurant with their children, according to E! News. Dressed casually, Schwarzenegger and Shriver reportedly sat next to each other in a corner booth in Coast Cafe in the Shutters on the Beach hotel. While Schwarzenegger has admitted to hopes of a reconciliation with Shriver, he has reportedly been dating another woman, Heather Milligan, since the fall. Milligan was not present at the family brunch.

Adele might be fat, but you’re still old
Joan Rivers is doubling down on her criticisms of Adele‘s weight. Asked during a HuffPost Live chat to defend a joke she made at the British singer’s expense during a “Late Show with David Letterman” appearance, Rivers took things even further. “It’s not mean. She’s a chubby lady who’s very, very rich, and she should just calm down — or lose weight,” Rivers replied. “She wanted an apology, so I took an ad out on her ass. I said, ‘You are not fat.’ And then I had room for a lot of other ads. Adele is beautiful and successful and has what, $100 million? Let’s face reality: She’s fat!”
