No Laughing Matter: Wanda Sykes Had Breast Cancer

Published

on

Today on Ellen, Wanda Sykes, a normally hysterical comedienne, made a startling serious announcement: She had breast cancer.

According to MSNBC, Sykes went in for a breast reduction in February and was hit with the news:

“I had real big boobs and I just got tired of knocking over stuff. Every time I eat — oh lord,” she said. “I’d carry a Tide stick everywhere I go. My back was sore so it was time to have a reduction...It wasn’t until after the reduction that in the lab work, the pathology, that they found that I had DCIS [ductal carcinoma in situ] in my left breast…I was very, very lucky because DCIS is basically stage-zero cancer. So I was very lucky.”

The first option was to take things slowly and see how everything progressed:

“I had the choice of, you can go back every three months and get it checked. Have a mammogram, MRI every three months just to see what it’s doing…But, I’m not good at keeping on top of stuff. I’m sure I’m overdue for an oil change and a teeth cleaning already.”

But because Sykes has a long history of cancer on her mother’s side, she chose the second option: have a bilateral mastectomy, and get rid of everything immediately.

“I had both breasts removed, because now I have zero chance of having breast cancer.”

Even with such a serious topic, Sykes, as always was able to make a joke or two…admitting to the audience that she wasn’t sure if she wanted to talk about the cancer:

“I was like, I don’t know, should I talk about it or what? How many things could I have? I’m black, then lesbian. I can’t be the poster child for everything.”

Glad to know she’s okay.

Courteney Cox’s Instagram Caption Is Every Parent With A Teenage Kid

Published

on

Have you heard? It’s 2020 and we’re all supposed to music videos on TikTok. Courteney Cox is no exception. The TV star posted an instagram of her and her daughter Coco dancing it out, with the hilarious caption, “Wanna see your child lose their patience? Do a TikTok with them.”

Also, how long does it take to actually learn one of these routines? It seems very time consuming.

What I was really hoping for was video of her daughter losing her patience, but what we got was a pretty strong routine!
