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.

    It wont be long before one or two of the rag mags will be reporting the follwing:

    Jennifer Aniston is secretly gloating over her rival’s misfortune, finally getting paid back for stealing her loverboy.


    Jennifer Aniston sends flowers to her and a card saying there is no more bad feelings, and she hopes she recovers well.

    Wait for it. It will sell a lot of mags.

    Just goes to show that it IS possible to live a private life even if one is a major celebrity. Just shut up, go about your business, and don’t pay any publicists! Good for Angie!

    I wonder if the tabloids all knew and chose not to print. Wouldn’t surprise me.

    She did it right. This was a personal matter, and obviously wanted it out of the limelight, until she had fully gone through with it.
    She’s an interesting woman, and I do admire her at times.

    I’m with Miss Eva,
    This couple never appears without a call to the paps, to keep up the rehabilitation of her image. I give kudos to the publicist who re-framed her as a responsible and likeable person.
    That said, having gone through breast cancer myself, I give her credit for going public. She didn’t have to, and the trolls lamenting the loss of her breasts are cringe worthy. Perhaps she has matured as a person? On the other hand, those who comment on other web sites about the horrible pain, let me assure you, that withing a day of my mastectomy, I didn’t need any pain medication, and after ten days, I was back riding my horses. So if anyone else is facing this challenge, be assured, that the stories of crippling pain are just that, stories.I have no family, and did this all on my own, discharged from hospital the next day, and only a public health nurse to check in on me. ( Don’t ask about chemo, that was far worse, and would knock me out for at least a week)

    What an awful thing that they had to go through.
