Yesterday morning, the New York Times published an op-ed written by actress Angelina Jolie wherein she revealed her decision to have her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed in order to reduce her risk of developing ovarian cancer after she tested positive for the BRCA1 “cancer gene” (you may recall that Jolie also had her breasts removed to reduce her risk of developing breast cancer back in 2013). Not only after Angelina‘s piece in the NYT was published, Kelly Osbourne made an appearance on The Talk yesterday to reveal her personal decision to have her ovaries removed as well. Kelly‘s mother Sharon Osbourne underwent a preemptive double mastectomy back in 2012 and at her mother’s suggestion, she was tested for the BRCA1 gene. Watch the video above to hear Kelly explain how testing positive for the cancer gene prompted her to decide to have her ovaries removed.
"It is a less complex surgery than the mastectomy, but its effects are more severe."
Two years ago, back in May 2013, Angelina Jolie revealed to the world that she underwent a preemptive double mastectomy in order to reduce her risk of developing breast cancer after she tested positive for the BRCA1 gene (which revealed a 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer). Today, Angelina reveals in an op-ed written for the New York Times that she underwent surgery last week to have her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed in order to reduce her risk of developing ovarian cancer. Angelina details her decision to have the surgery and its results very plainly, very honestly, very bravely. Click below to read excerpts from her piece today in the NYT and learn more about her brave decision to have this surgery and share the experience with the world. More »
Zayn Malik‘s publicist announced today that he will be quitting the One Direction tour immediately so that he can fly back home to the UK and deal with “stress”. This announcement comes shortly after photos surfaced of Zayn looking awfully close to a young woman that is NOT his fiancée Perrie Edwards. Putting 2 + 2 together, it would appear that the stress that Zayn is suffering might be stemming from the grief those photos are causing him … and his fiancée. Yikes! Click below to learn more about Zayn‘s departure from the 1D tour and possible dissolution of his marriage engagement. More »
The video graphically shows the point of impact and reimpact
Back in January we learned that rap mogul Marion Suge Knight was arrested on charges resulting from a fatal hit and run on the set of the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton that was still in filming production here in Los Angeles. Knight claims that that the hit and run was the result of self defense. Today, graphic video of the full hit and run incident has been released and … yeah … it’s pretty insane to watch. The incident was recorded on surveillance video and altho a bit censored, the video does show the points of impact when the truck Suge Knight was driving struck Cle Bone Sloan and Terry Carter — who ended up dying from his injuries. For the record, Carter‘s family asked that this video be released publicly in order to bolster the case against Suge Knight. You can watch the video in full above and then read a description of what this video shows in more detail. More »

Today we learn the very happy news that Harrison Ford is recovering well in the hospital and he is expected to make a full recovery. Harrison‘s son Ben Ford shared a bit of information about his dad’s condition from the hospital and Ford‘s press rep issued an official statement regarding his condition.

"She is being put back into a coma."
According to new reports from unnamed family sources, Bobbi Kristina Brown was brought out of her medically-induced coma this week for a short time. People magazine is reporting that after Bobbi was brought out of her coma, she suffered “violent seizures” and had to be put back into a coma. Now, because this information is coming from unnamed sources, the news is not official. TMZ is reporting that news that BK was brought out of her coma is untrue … which is information they received from their unnamed family sources. But, both reports agree that Bobbi Kristina is still unresponsive, in a coma and on life support with no signs of getting better. More »
Family sources claim she will be brought out of her coma
Family sources not authorized to speak to the media are reporting that Bobbi Kristina Brown‘s breathing tube has been removed and replaced with a tracheostomy tube … which likely means that she is expected to be on a ventilator for an extended period of time. Additionally, family sources are claiming that Bobbi Kristina may be brought out of her medically-induced coma. Again, despite Bobby Brown‘s previous plea for his family members to stop giving BK‘s medical information to the media, they seem happy to provide updates whenever there is supposed new information. Read on to learn more. More »
There really has been no new information regarding Bobbi Kristina Brown‘s condition as she remains on life support in the wake of her drowning accident almost three weeks ago now. But we are hearing that more drama is surrounding the poor girl as she lays unconscious in the hospital. Nick Gordon, who Bobbi Kristina claimed to have married last year, has been trying to get in to see BK but he has been banned from seeing her by her father Bobby Brown. Gordon and the Brown family do not get along and now that Nick is being investigated for possibly having a hand in Bobbi Kristina‘s drowning, there is no way the Brown family will let him anywhere near their Krissy. Even still, Nick Gordon is trying to desperately to see her. More »
Bobby plans to keep BK on life support, no matter what
In spite of Bobby Brown‘s refutation of “false reports” and pleas for privacy concerning his daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, currently on life support in the wake of a bathtub drowning incident two weeks ago, Bobby‘s sister went on local TV this week to break the family’s privacy so that she could offer a supposed false report of her own. Today we are hearing very sad news that Bobbi Kristina‘s condition continues to worsen because her organs are reportedly failing. Undaunted, tho, Bobby is apparently planning to keep his daughter on life support no matter what. Additionally, he has issued another official statement through his attorney, this time asking the media to stop talking to members of his family who have no idea what they are talking about when they give “new information” about Bobbi Kristina‘s condition.
