Only Weeks to Live?????

| Filed under: Sad SadPaul Newman


New reports claim that legendary actor Paul Newman has finished chemotherapy treatment for his cancer and that he's been given only a few weeks to live.

We hope that's not true.

The Oscar winner's battle with a yet-to-be officially confirmed cancer has been talked about for months, though he and his 'people' have continued to debunk claims that he's fighting for his life.

A source said that the renowned philanthropist has been discharged from the hospital because he wants to die at home.

"Paul didn't want to die in the hospital," says the insider. "(Wife) Joanne and his daughters are beside themselves with grief."

Sad, sad, sad.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Newman and his family.

This Is Getting Out Of Control

| Filed under: Paul Newman


Paul Newman's friend and business partner, A.E. Hotchner, has denied an Associated Press report, which quotes him saying that the actor is fighting cancer, according to Access Hollywood.

Hotchner tells the show, “I saw him last week and he seemed fine. I have no knowledge of any diagnosis or doctors.”

The AP says it stands by its story.

We hope you're doing OK, either way, Mr. Newman.

Paul Newman's longtime neighbor and business partner confirmed on Wednesday that the screen legend is battling cancer.

Writer A.E. Hotchner, who partnered with Newman to start Newman's Own salad dressing company, said the actor told him about the disease about 18 months ago.

Hotchner doesn't say what kind of cancer the legendary actor has but said Newman is in active treatment.

Get well, Mr. Newman!

May your days be pain-free and surrounded by loved ones.

Still Ill?

| Filed under: Paul Newman


Speculation about the health of Paul Newman has intensified and the legendary actor has felt compelled to speak out again.

Previously, a rep for Newman said reports that he was fighting terminal lung cancer were not true.

Well, it seems like somebody must have spoken out of turn.

Paul released a statement late Tuesday evening, which was more cryptic and did not deny the health reports.

Says the actor's publicist: "Newman says he's doing nicely. This is what I got from him. He says he's doing nicely, and this is the statement I wanted to share with you, and that's what I have. I spoke to his office. … this is the statement that came directly from him."

Our thoughts are with Paul and his family during this time.

We hope he stays 'nicely' for a while!

Cancer Free?

| Filed under: Paul Newman


Paul Newman is finally addressing the reports about his health.

A rep for the actor, Toni Howard, is saying that it is "not true" that he is battling terminal lung cancer.

Is he really cancer-free or is he just trying to recapture some privacy?

Either way, we just hope Mr. Newman is/gets well.
