Sucking the life out of the wire services:
There's going to be a little bit of CORY MONTEITH from Disneyland to the Great White North. The late actor's cousin, RICHARD MONTEITH, tells RadarOnline.com his ashes will be spread across Los Angeles, Vancouver and Victoria --all cities that held a special significance for Cory. The "Glee" star was found dead in a hotel room on July 13th and passed away due to a deadly mix of alcohol and heroin. (Lee)

The customer survey by national lingerie retailer Intimacy says the demand for larger sizes comes from better customer service and a heightened awareness about the importance of wearing a bra that fits your cup size. Racked.com says 20 years ago, the American bra market carried fewer than 20 sizes, so women with larger breasts were forced to pack 'em into smaller cup sizes. (Bartha)
