Kelly Ripa: So You Think You Can Dance
Kelly Ripa and her husband Mark watched So You Think You Can Dance last night and Kelly said every commercial break she was turning to Mark and telling him she could win the competition if she was on the show. Obviously, after seeing some of Kelly’s dancing, we all know it is unlikely.
Michael said he liked watching the show sometimes because they make the people do hip hop dances and then they move them right to ballet. They force the competitors to get outside of their comfort zones and learn how to do something new.
Angelina Jolie Double Mastectomy
Angelina Jolie recently announced she had a double mastectomy early this year after finding out she had an 87 percent chance of getting breast cancer. While Jolie had always known cancer ran in the her family as her mother died from ovarian cancer, Jolie had no idea her chances were so high until she had the BRCA1 test done, a test that looked at the different genes in her body to determine her chance of cancer.
Kelly said it is so strange for her to think 15 years ago she was talking with her friends about how to be a good mother and now she and her friends are discussing double mastectomies, adding that she has several friends who have had the procedure done.
“Time can march on in a cruel way but it can bring out the bravery in people,” said Kelly of Jolie’s situation.
Angelina Jolie has also stated after getting the procedure done she hopes to work at bringing down the cost for the test which has the ability to indicate possibly cancerous cells.
