ANGELINA JOLIE KNOWS WHEN TO KEEP A SECRET AND WHEN TO TELL ALL
Like everyone else we were totally surprised by Angelina Jolie’s announcement about her preventive double mastectomy. Angelina’s heartfelt letter to The New York Times about her health situation will certainly serve to educate women everywhere. How she managed to keep all these months of surgeries at the Pink Lotus Breast Center in Beverly Hills a secret is amazing. We wondered what Angie and Brad and the kids were doing in LA these past months because they don’t usually stay in one place for long. We do remember how devastated Angelina was when her mother Marcheline died. We happened to be staying at L’Ermitage Hotel in Beverly Hills around six years ago and her mother Marcheline was also living there in seclusion while she was being treated at nearby Cedars Sinai Hospital. Hotel staffers told me Angie was a constant visitor and did everything possible to care for her mother. Within a year her mother was gone. Angelina wants to be around for her kids and grandchildren – good for her.
