ANGELINA JOLIE’S DOUBLE MASTECTOMY RAISES AWARENESS AROUND THE WORLD

Angelina Jolie’s Double Mastectomy Raises Awareness Around the World

Celebrities have a lot of influence on people outside of Hollywood.  Recently, Angelina Jolie released an op-ed piece in the New York Times announcing her double mastectomy.  Our hearts, as well as many others I’m sure, went out to this courageous woman last week.

Angelina Jolie’s double mastectomy was the result of a blood test that told her of a certain gene she carries that could end up giving her breast cancer.  Angelina Jolie’s mother, Marcheline Bertrand, died at a very young age from from ovarian cancer.  The actress knew she needed to be tested for the gene that could cause breast cancer and ovarian cancer.  Based on the results of this testing, she decided to remove both of her breasts to prevent any cancer because she was told she had up to an 87% chance of developing the disease.

We think that Angelina Jolie’s double mastectomy was not only a brave decision as a woman, but to come forward as an actress and share her story was wonderful as well.  Any celebrity in Hollywood can have a lot of influence on society and especially raise awareness for some of these big issues that we face.  By sharing her story about her double mastectomy, Angelina Jolie has brought so much attention to the issue of breast and ovarian cancer as well as its testing and ways to prevent it.  We salute Angelina Jolie for this.

Angelina Jolie is not the only influential person to undergo a double mastectomy.  There are quite a few celebrities who share this same issue and surgery with her.  In 2008, Christina Applegate also underwent a double mastectomy after being diagnosed with breast cancer.  Although her cancer was only in one breast, she too carried the gene that put her at higher risk of a relapse and ovarian cancer.

Kathy Bates beat ovarian cancer in 2003.  Last summer doctors discovered a lump in one of her breasts and after much thought and consideration, Kathy decided to go through with a double mastectomy.

After discovering that she carried the breast cancer gene, Sharon Osbourne decided to have a preventative double mastectomy as well.

In 2011, E! Entertainment Host Giuliana Rancic was diagnosed with breast cancer.  She too opted to have a double mastectomy to prevent any relapse or cancer.

Many other people in the public eye have undergone surgery to remove their breasts in order to prevent or treat breast cancer.  Comedian Wanda Sykes and TV star Michelle Heaton both underwent the surgery as well.  So, as you can see Angelina Jolie’s double mastectomy has not been the only one in Hollywood.  All of these women have been so brave in sharing their stories in order to help other women prevent breast and ovarian cancer.  We salute them and any other brave women going through something similar.  These women have helped bring awareness to so many lives and they may prevent someone from getting cancer, and for that we will be forever grateful.

NEW SEASON OF ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT COMING SOON

New Season of Arrested Development Coming Soon

May 26th. marks the return of one of the most popular cult comedy sitcoms of our time!  Arrested Development returns to Netflix in a couple of weeks with 15 new episodes that you will be able to watch simultaneously.  Arrested development aired on FOX between 2003 and 2006 before getting cancelled.  While their ratings weren’t exceptional back then, it seems like Arrested Development was ahead of its time.  Maybe even too smart for the audience.  But, Arrested Development’s fans are just as loyal today and their fan base has been growing ever since, making the sitcom a cult comedy.

Although Arrested Development didn’t run for very long, it has a very loyal fan base that has been growing since it has been off of the air.  A cult hit television show is defined by its very passionate fan base and usually has lower ratings.  I began watching Arrested Development, like many, after the show was cancelled.  I am now a loyal fan and can not wait for the new season to be released on Netflix.  So, on Saturday May 25th. I have cleared my schedule!  I will be sitting in front of my computer for an entire day, to watch every episode all at once, like I know so many of you will be doing too!

(photo via fanpop.com)

It took quite a few years for the creator Mitchell Hurwitz to get everyone from the original cast together.  Sadly, there will only be one or two episodes where the entire Bluth family appears together in one place!  Each episode will mainly be focusing on one character at a time, catching us up on what they have been up to since the series finale.  And although you may be sad that there will only be one more season of fifteen episodes, don’t fret yet because there may be a movie in the works!  Arrested Development the movie has not been Green Lit yet, but Mitchell Hurwitz and Ron Howard, the narrator, are working on it.

So my question is this:  Will this newest season of Arrested Development be as fun and smart as the previous episodes?  Will it still be too smart for its viewers?  Or will it be that relief we have been waiting for, that edgy, sexy, ridiculous comedy relief?  Let us know what you think about Arrested Development and the Bluth family.  What were your favorite episodes and what or who are you looking forward to this season?

Giovanni Ribisi from Middle Men is in talks to join the cast of yet another Seth Macfarlane movie.  In 2012 Ribisi played the creepy kidnapper in Ted, written, produced, and directed by Seth Macfarlane.  A Million Ways to Die in the West is another wacky comedy from the creator of Family Guy.  The movie is about a cowardly farmer played by Macfarlane, seeking the help of a gunslinger’s wife to help him win back the woman who left him and in turn develops feelings for her.  Giovanni Ribisi is slated to play Macfarlane’s character’s best friend Edward.  Edward is a simple shoe repairman who is dating a prostitute that won’t have sex with him, even though she is sleeping with everyone else.

Giovanni Ribisi from Middle Men was amazing and we can’t wait to see him in this film.  Ribisi, born in America in 1974, has a long list of film credits including Boiler Room, Gone in 60 Seconds, Lost in Translation, and had a recurring role on the hit television series Friends. If you like Seth Macfarlane and enjoyed Ted, hopefully A Million Ways to Die in the West will follow in its footsteps!  Giovanni is talented and his work is great in anything he does.
