| Filed under: DrugsSad SadHealthCharityMedicineCancerSickReality TV

Oh no!

UPDATE THURSDAY 8:46 PM EST: Big Ang's family has already reached their fundraising goal! In only two days, the campaign raised far more than the $25,000 target!

According to the crowdfunding site, hundreds of generous donors gifted $36,941 for the lovely lady's treatment!


This is such sad news.

Last year, we learned that Big Ang's cancer has returned. And now, we're getting more bad news about her current treatment.

On Tuesday, the Mob Wives star's sister, Janine Detore, revealed that she has not been responding to her chemotherapy.

The VH1 alum's sibling created a GoFundMe page, discussing her current condition, writing:

"As you know my sister was diagnosed with stage 4 brain and lung cancer. Chemotherapy was started January 5 th. On January 26th the doctor reviewed her CT scan and informed us that the treatment was not working, and in fact one tumor grew larger and the other tumors had no change. We were advised that she would start immunotherapy the following week."

Oh no.

While she mentioned Ang isn't on the brink of death, she did say that the TV personality is really struggling with her breathing, and is in an incredible amount of pain.

So, the bar owner's sister suggested cannabis oil to reduce the pain. Unfortunately, the product is pretty pricey, which is why the famous family turned to crowdfunding. Janine wrote:

Big Sean's latest IG pics.

Big Sean has such a kind heart!

According to the rapper, he has plans to help out the water crisis victims in Flint, Michigan and he's encouraging all of his fans to pitch in as well.

For those who don't know, the city of Flint is in trouble following a 2014 water supply switch from Detroit to a local water source. Unfortunately for the town's residents, the supply was found to contain high levels of lead which grossly affected MANY children. The situation is especially sad since high lead levels can lead to developmental delays and other health problems.

Leonardo DiCaprio Shares His Views On MARRIAGE, Fame, & How He Uses Acting As An Escape!

| Filed under: Love LineLeonardo DiCaprioCharityCover Shot

Leonardo DiCaprio

We don't have to tell you that Leonardo DiCaprio is one of Hollywood's most highly-acclaimed (and followed) stars.

So what does the 41-year-old notorious bachelor think of all the hype?

In a new interview with Parade mag, The Revenant star says it all comes down to his passion for acting and having a platform to create change in the world.

But The Wolf Of Wall Street actor isn't interested in fame for fame's sake, that's just part of the territory:

"If I wanted to quit acting, I could have done it a long time ago. I love making movies. I feel lucky and fortunate to do it, and it is absolutely worth sacrificing a lot of my private life. I don't think anyone [famous] ever really gets used to it. It's always surreal. At the end of the day, there are people with much harder jobs who sacrifice a lot more of their own lives to do them, people in the armed forces. I don't want to hear myself complain about the hardships of being famous—because I do have the freedom to stop, if I wanted to."

The fame he's acquired over his four decades in Hollywood has given him a platform to be an environmental advocate — something he's been very passionate about since he was a kid:

"As a young boy I was obsessed with endangered species and the extinct species that men killed off. Biology was the subject in school that I was incredibly passionate about. As a kid, I was going to be a marine biologist or an actor. When I became successful as an actor, I said, 'Well, maybe I can lend a voice to this with an equal passion.' You realize how lucky we are, and how destructive we've been, and what little regard we have for the natural world. In a lot of ways [environmental advocacy] becomes a form of spirituality. And here we are, in this unbelievably heavenly moment on planet Earth, and look how we're treating this utopia and the fellow life-forms that we live with. It's disheartening."

With all of his star power, the mag points out the Leo could have any woman he wants, do anything he wants… so why
