  • A month after being diagnosed with breast cancer, Christina Applegate is now cancer-free. "I'm clear," she told Robin Roberts of Good Morning America earlier today. "Absolutely 100 percent clear and clean. It did not spread — they got everything out, so I'm definitely not going to die from breast cancer." She went on to say: "My decision, after looking at all the treatment plans that were possibilities for me, the only one that seemed the most logical and the one that was going to work for me was to have a bilateral mastectomy."

A Small Turnip

@BeSarcastic: It's okay about Bret getting hitched, though, truly. I've met Hannah, his fiancee, and she is awesome. If I can't have the sweet weedy shy guy for myself, she's a pretty great alternative. Plus, they've been together for over a decade, so they're practically an old married couple anyway. I've inured myself against the pain of it through lots of therapeutic, tear-stained diary entries.

Hearing about Jemaine and Miranda was a bit of a blow, though. She doesn't even look like me. Except around the eyes. We've both got eyes.
