the enquirer was right about penny marshalls battle with cancer

We hoped this wasn't true all along, but sure enough The Enquirer wasn't lying!

Last we heard about Penny Marshall's alleged battle with cancer back in March 2010, The Enquirer was reporting that the Laverne & Shirley star was struggling with her fight against cancer, but Penny's rep continued to deny that she was sick.

Now, after denying The Enquirer's claims for two years, Penny Marshall has confirmed that she DID battle brain and lung cancer in 2009.

The truth came out today when Penny's agent Dan Strone released a statement that she's coming out with a memoir called My Mother Was Nuts, which will delve into many different aspects of her professional AND personal life, including "her battle with brain and lung cancer in 2009."

Fortunately, Penny's cancer has reportedly gone into remission, and things seem to be looking up for the TV icon/acclaimed film director.

Did U follow this story over the past few years? Did U think that The Enquirer was telling the truth???
