Kris Jenner Has Cancer Scare?


Wednesday, April 23, 2014

5313AES 117857 Kris Jenner Has Cancer Scare?

KRIS Jenner had a cancer scare — and that’s why she rushed to the hospital, frightened and in pain, on April 16.

The reality star was accompanied to the hospital by her estranged husband Bruce Jenner — and Kris  underwent tests, X-rays and scans “for precautionary reasons” at Los Robles Hospital in Thousand Oaks, Calif., near her home.

“Kris’ first thought was that her pains were somehow related to cancer,” a source told American tabloid the National Enquirer. “She was dreading the doctor’s diagnosis.

“Kris is at that dangerous age when her years of sun-tanning are starting to catch up with her. She’s worried sick about the state of her skin, especially around her decollete and knees, but she also has several mole-type spots on her back that she’s extremely worried about.

“She gets them checked all the time and docs say she’s fine, but that hasn’t stopped her from freaking out about it. There’s no doubt she’s at risk from skin cancer.”

Meanwhile, medical experts say she’s also at risk for other cancers because her mom, 80-year-old Mary Jo Shannon, has battled both breast and colon cancer. And due to a possible genetic link, Mary Jo says that Kris’ daughters, even the youngest, Kendall and Kylie, have been advised that they’re at a heightened risk of getting the disease so they can be screened regularly.

But, for now, it’s the thought of developing the skin variety that scares her most.

“Kris refuses to go out without 30-plus sunblock and she no longer uses a tanning bed,” the source added. “These days, she sticks to twice-weekly spray tans.”

Game of Thrones Recap: The Ends Justify the Mean (Spoilers)

For the second time in four episodes, this week’s episode of Game of Thrones finds the world of Westeros reeling from the death of one of its young kings.

Just as the aftermath of last season’s Red Wedding had each character in the Seven Kingdom’s dealing with their place in the new Lannister hegemony, the murder of Joffrey exploded that burgeoning stasis, and our assorted cripples, bastards and broken things have found themselves adrift in a world where nobody’s sure exactly who’s on top any more.

How do they deal with this? For most characters in “Breaker of Chains” it’s by hunkering down and thinking of the long term, no matter how much pain each decision causes them in the present.

Major spoilers below. Proceed at your own risk!

King’s Landing

We start only moments removed from the end of last week’s episode, as Cersei cradles Joffrey’s dead body and screams for Tyrion’s arrest. She wants Sansa in chains too, but the Stark sister is already well on her way out there, absconding with Ser Dontos through the alleyways of King’s Landing.

The drunken fool leads her to a boat and commands her to get in – with one last Vermeer-worthy look back, she’s gone from the city that’s been her prison for the better part of three seasons.

They row until nightfall, when they come upon what can only be described as a freaky ghost ship. It’s not haunted by the usual spirits, though, just the Ghost of Creepers Past: Littlefinger.

He takes Sansa aboard, telling her he’ll be taking her somewhere safe. This would not be reassuring coming from Littlefinger in any situation, but it’s even less reassuring after he commands his hidden crossbowmen to kill Ser Dontos “Money buys a man’s silence for a time,” he explains, “but a bolt through the heart buys it forever.” No happiness lasts for long for poor Sansa Stark – she escaped one monster, only to immediately exchange him for another, smarter one.

The next day, Margaery and Olenna are dining in the Tyrell’s official plotting garden, discussing how Joffrey’s death affects Marge’s role as queen. Margaery’s fear would seem to remove her from the list of subjects, but her grandmother is cagier, explaining that the Lannisters still need them. However unpleasant it may be to have Cersei as an in-law, Olenna assures Margaery that “the next one” will be easier. As always, she’s got a plan.

And with that, we turn to our first major glimpse of Joffrey’s heir, his younger brother Tommen, already in the running for Game of Thrones‘s nicest character after only five minutes of screen time.

At Joffrey’s funeral, Tywin is using the occasion to give the new king a dissertation on leadership. You ever notice how people only tell you to stand up for yourself when you’re not doing something they want? That’s what’s happening here.

Tommen guesses that a good king must be holy, just and strong. Not so, says papa Lannister. A good king must be wise – “wise’ in this case meaning doing whatever Tywin says. Their interaction ends with Tywin promising to tell Tommen about the birds and the bees, and if we don’t get Charles Dance delivering the sex talk this season I will throw away my screeners in revolt.

Cersei’s standing vigil over Joffrey’s body when Jaime arrives to pay his respects. He ushers the guards out of the sept and takes the occasion of the privacy to put the moves on his sister.

She rebuffs him, quite reasonable shying away from screwing her brother just feet from her dead son, but Jaime isn’t having it. “Why have the gods made me love a hateful woman?” he asks, before raping her. It’s a brutal scene that I worry might not read as assault for viewers conditioned to see Jaime as a hero and Cersei as a villain. But even if you see it as the crime it is, it’s still hard to believe Jaime’s actually doing it. We just sat through this guy’s season-long redemption arc. Now he’s a rapist?

In Littlefinger’s brother, Oberyn Martell is interrupted from his soliloquy on the joys of bisexuality by the entrance of Tywin. Is this going to be an interrogation? Oberyn argues convincingly that he had no motive to kill Joffrey – “I do not punish the child for the crimes of his father, or his grandfather” – but that’s not what Tywin’s there for.

Instead, he wants Oberyn to serve as a judge at Tyrion’s trial. In return, Tywin will make sure the Mountain faces justice for the murder of Oberyn’s sister. The Dornishman considers it, and agrees. He’s not happy about it, but Tywin assures him it’s for the best. “We need each other,” he purrs regally.

In his cell, Tyrion receives his first and only visitor: Podrick Payne. They both agree that Tyrion’s been framed, but they’re not sure who was behind the plot. The unfortunate Imp also rules out his sister: “I’m convinced Cersei had nothing to do with it, which makes it unusual as far as King’s Landing murders go.”

Pod reveals a mysterious stranger tried to bribe him to testify against Tyrion; he refused, which Tyrion realizes will spell a death warrant for the boy. He send the squire off, with instructions to fetch Jaime and then leave King’s Landing immediately. Considering how low-key on the Game of Thrones totem pole Pod is, it’s a surprisingly heartbreaking goodbye. Just look at this face:

The Riverlands

Arya and the Hound are continuing their buddy-cop shtick across Westeros when they’re interrupted by the arrival of a kindly farmer. Once they identify themselves as House Tully supporters, the farmer takes them in.

Over dinner, he offers Sandor a job on the farm, promising he’s got a cache of silver hidden away: “Honest pay for honest work.” Will our heroes go straight? Not a chance: Arya wakes up the next day to the sound of a scuffle the Hound had knocked the farmer out and is stealing his silver. At Arya’s scolding, the Hound reveals his peculiar worldview: In the long term view, the farmer will likely be killed by bandits, therefore he doesn’t need his silver, therefore it’s OK to steal it.

Arya calls him an unprintable word, but the Hound strikes back. “There are plenty worse than me,” he growls. “How many Starks have they got to behead for you to learn that?”

Dragonstone

Davos Seaworth, the menschiest Lord in Westeros, is summoned to his king. Stannis has just found out about Joffrey’s death and he is not happy. Why hasn’t Davos made him king yet? Davos wants to hire sellswords, but the prospect of invading Westeros with an army of mercenaries does not appeal to the man who made his mistress birth a smoke-baby to kill his younger brother. Davos makes this exact point, but Stannis just seethes: “I’m running out of time. Which means you’re running out of time.”

Luckily, Stannis’s daughter is a little more pleasant to be around. She’s still teaching Davos to read, scolding him for pronouncing “knight” as “kaniggit.” Tonight’s book is about a pirate of Braavos, across the Narrow Sea, which prompts an adorable discussion of the differences between pirates and smugglers.

The argument gets our Onion Knight’s brainwaves working, and it’s a pleasure to watch Liam Cunningham play Davos thinking. He hits on a plan: Ask the Iron Bank of Braavos for help! Hopefully this leads to a 15-minute discussion of interest payments and APR financing in the next episode.

The Wall

A pleasant scene of agrarian life is interrupted by the arrival of the Ygritte, who shoots and arrow through some dad’s head in full view of his kids. Tormund and the rest of the Wildlings show up and waste no time in slaughtering everyone in sight.

Don’t root for the Wildlings, the show’s telling us, no matter how cuddly they are! But Tormund and his gang pale in comparison to the Thenns, who remain as cartoonishly evil as the day they were introduced. The Thenn leader tells a little boy from the beginning he’s going to eat his parents, then sends him along to tell Castle Black what happened.

At the Wall, the Night’s Watch is debating whether or not to retaliate against the Wildlings. Opinions are divided between Team Kill All the Raiders and Team Let Civilians Get Slaughtered So We Can Focus on the Bigger Picture, but Jon Snow tips the scales in favor of Team Let Civilians Get Slaughtered.

This has not been a good episode for our fan-favorite characters. The debate is interrupted by the surprise appearance of Grenn and Dolorous Edd, who tell the Night’s Watch about the deserters at Craster’s Keep. (The timeline seems messy here – didn’t Sam tell Aemon this when he returned the Wall last season?) In a reversal of what he was just arguing, Jon immediately proposes riding out and killing the mutineers before they can reveal to the Wilding army just how weak the Night’s Watch is. Realpolitik is a hell of a thing.

Meanwhile, Sam is trying to keep Gilly and her baby safe among the army of rapists, thieves and murderers who make up the Night’s Watch. She’s unconcerned, telling him that an army of men sworn to celibacy surely have better things to think about.

“It’s the only thing they think about,” he tells her. To protect Gilly, Sam gets her a job as a housekeeper at a brothel in Mole’s Town, a ramshackle hovel down the road from Castle Black. Gilly sees this as a slight, but Sam tries to convince her it’s for her own good. She’s goes full Peggy Olson on him: Isn’t he lucky, to have decisions.

Meereen

After an hour of guilt, compromise and self-doubt, it’s refreshing to catch up with Daenerys on the righteous warpath against slavery.

We’ve got clear heroes and villains here, and the show ditches its muddy greys and browns to reflect that. Dany’s finally arrived at the gates of Meereen, a walled city where the slavers look down at her from their garden parties like they’re bankers at Cipriani.

Meereen sends out its champion, a charming equestrian who insults Dany and pisses in her general direction. She ignores the insult, but Jorah councils her that words aren’t meaningless when half of a city is listening. It’s time to pick a champion to face the rider in single combat. Grey Worm, Barristan and Jorah all volunteer, but Dany conveniently tells them all they’re too important to the war effort to spare. What a coincidence, this leaves only Daario Naharis. The Jack Sparrow of Westeros makes short work of the Meereenese champion and Dany saunters over to him, impressed.

Now it’s time for war. The Unsullied roll out their catapults, while Dany delivers a speech to the inhabitants of Meereen. But this time it’s different: Instead of addressing the slavers, she’s talking directly to the slaves – words are not meaningless if half a city is listening. She implores them to take their freedom for themselves, while her catapults launch enormous barrels into the city. The barrels explode, and it turns out they’re full of slave collars, taken from the slave children the Meereenese strung up outside their city. Dany started as Abe Lincoln, now she’s John Brown.

Melissa Joan Hart on Losing 40 Lbs.: I Feel Great, but Don’t Get Used to Bikini Pics!

Melissa Joan Hart, 38, recently revealed all — of her 40-lb. weight loss, that is — in a sexy pink bikini as a preview of her upcoming Nutrisystem ad. And now that her ad is finally hitting the airwaves, Hart spoke to PEOPLE about her weight loss journey, inadvertently getting a workout thanks to her three cute sons and whether or not we’ll see her in a bikini again. Check out her candid interview (and watch her new ad!) below.

Despite the huge smile in her Instagram reveal, Hart (who decided to team up with Nutrisystem after giving birth to son Tucker in 2012) was hesitant to show off in the super-bright swimwear. But she worked up the courage to do it after dropping the last few pounds. “I never wear a bikini, I’m always embarrassed. And I was like, ‘Let me get over it,’” she says. “Let me just swallow my pride a little and do it while I am still in my thirties, because as I get older I’m going to be less likely to put on a bikini. So, I did it.”

“Probably the last time [I wore a bikini], I was on your cover. I really just don’t wear bikinis. I was shy to wear the bikini [in the ad],” she says. “I was like, ‘I’m not in my twenties, I don’t want to wear the bikini. I want to be in a classy swimsuit!’ But at the same time, I was like, ‘You know what, I can do it. I’m feeling good.’ So I went ahead and took the risk.”

But though she loves the way the photos turned out, don’t look for her to be sporting a skimpy two-piece at the beach anytime soon. “I’m a mom … I want to make my boys proud, and my husband. I don’t want to try to prove to anybody that I’m any younger than I am, or any different than I am. I wasn’t trying to prove anything except for that I felt great and I feel like I look good.”

Was there a number on the scale Hart wanted to hit before going for the full reveal? Not exactly, she says: “When you get that naked, it has to be more about what your body looks like. And sometimes the scale doesn’t always go along with how great your body looks. I have a lot of curves, and I love that about myself. So, I wanted to be true to that.”

“I could probably lose another five to 10 pounds if I really, really wanted to, but at that point I’m not working out, I have no muscle on my body, and I have no shape to me,” she continues. “And that to me, especially at my age, is not attractive. My friends always say, ‘You sacrifice your face for your ass, or your ass for your face.’ … I just want to be feminine, you know?”

The actress maintains her weight loss with the help of Nutrisystem (including using the brand’s “Fast Five” weeklong plan to prep for the photoshoot), cutting out salty and sugary foods and by tagging along with friends to gym classes. And of course, there’s always her kids to keep her in shape. “Just keeping the little ones alive is a workout alone, trying to keep them from falling down stairs and slides and off playgrounds … There’s a lot of workouts in this family for sure, whether you want it or not,” she jokes.

But she gets serious about her gym time when she needs it. “When I really want to hit it hard, I schedule it in, and I make sure I make the time for it, because it is a priority. Whether it’s going for early morning runs before hey wake up or going to the gym after I drop them off at school, or right after work. Or maybe fitting it on lunch hour, trying to find those times.”

And though she doesn’t think she’ll be wearing the ad’s Victoria’s Secret swimsuit again (“That’s the last thing I need is someone catching a picture of me in that bikini!”) she does have plenty of motivation to keep fit for the future — and that includes being inspired by other celebrities who’ve snapped back immediately post-baby.

“I love looking at people that I’m motivated by and saying, ‘Gwen Stefani looks fantastic. I want to be like Gwen Stefani,’” she says. “Sometimes it’s not always reasonable to look at somebody and draw inspiration off them. I actually don’t mind the pressure as a celebrity, because I don’t mind using it to try to get me to the gym. People expect me to look good! [But] you’ve got to take it with a healthy dose of reality. It’s gotta be what really works for me. Don’t kill yourself for it, but maybe start to make some changes.”

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart could end up in very close proximity next month.

The exes are among the scores of stars slated to attend the famed Cannes Film Festival, which runs from May 14 to 25 and revealed its lineup in a press conference Thursday.

Pattinson, 27, has two films in contention: The Rover, a gritty drama set in a near-future Australia, and Maps to the Stars, a Hollywood-skewering drama costarring Julianne Moore and John Cusack. Stewart, 24, will be seen in the drama Clouds of Sils Maria with Juliette Binoche.

The royal biopic Grace of Monaco, starring Nicole Kidman, is slated to open the festival on May 14, with a total of 49 films being shown at the prestigious fest, which is considered a key launching pad for films with box-office and awards-season hopes.

The 18 films in competition will be judged by a jury headed by Jane Campion, the first female director to win the event’s coveted Palme d’Or prize, for 1993′s The Piano.

Among those who are expected to be on the red carpet May 14-25:

Ryan Gosling makes his directorial debut with Lost River, a thriller starring his real-life girlfriend, Eva Mendes, and Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks.

Ryan Reynolds stars in the psychological thriller The Captive as the father of a kidnapped girl.

The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, a two-part drama about a young married couple living in New York, stars James McAvoy and Cannes favorite Jessica Chastain.

• Oscar winner Cate Blanchett returns to the Croisette for her voice work in the out-of-competition How to Train Your Dragon 2.

Channing Tatum and Steve Carell hope to launch Oscar buzz for Foxcatcher, a drama based on Olympic wresting gold medalist Mark Schultz’s autobiography.

• Hilary Swank costars with Meryl Streep and Streep’s daughter Grace Gummer in The Homesman, a Western directed by Tommy Lee Jones, who also costars.

The Artist, which started its award run at Cannes in 2011 and went on to win the Best Picture Oscar, will stage a mini-reunion at this year’s festival. Director Michel Hazanavicius and his leading-lady wife, Bérénice Bejo return with their follow-up, The Search, a French-language war film set in Chechnya and costarring Annette Bening.

• At 83, iconic French director Jean-Luc Godard will also have a film in competition – in 3-D, no less: Goodbye to Language.
