This is so sad!!!
Legendary newsman Tom Brokaw just revealed that he has cancer!!!
Apparently the author, journalist, & NBC News Special Correspondent was diagnosed with multiple myeloma — a cancer that affects blood cells in bone marrow — way back in August at the Mayo Clinic.
Ugh!!! What a horribly unfortunate turn of events!
Thankfully, the 74-year-old South Dakota native hasn't let the bad medical news get him down. Tom is DETERMINED to kick cancer's ass!!
In the statement he released today, he revealed:
Cue the Star Wars soundtrack!!
Because someway, somehow, Rodarte’s Fall 2014 runway at NYFW featured five out-of-this
world galaxy gowns that sported images from the George Lucas-directed franchise itself — and the Force was DEFINITELY with the outfits!
Models gravitated down the runway in glamorous garb decorated with the likes of Luke Skywalker, Yoda, C-3PO, the Death Star, and Tatooine's double moons; all fan-faves in their own right!!
Sigh. If only Cara Delevingne was there to walk the show with her
deadly toy lightsaber!! Gahh!! We can’t stop imagining the magic that could’ve been, LOLz!
Any Jedi Masters out there totally digging these looks??? Or do you think Rodarte's up to some Jedi mind tricks??

The Great White Way is about to get even greater!
Maggie Gyllenhaal is coming to Broadway, so it looks like Midtown Manhattan will get just that much more congested, as we're sure her stage presence will bring thousands…nay, millions on an epic pilgrimage to see her act.
She'll be in Tom Stoppard's play The Real Thing starring opposite of Ewan McGregor, who will be treading the boards on Broadway for the first time as well.
Maggie plays the woman Ewan's playwright character leaves his wife for! Sounds steam-ay, and with these two hotties in these roles, we're sure there's not going to be a dry seat in the house.
The play won the 1984 Tony award for Best Play, so who knows if this revival will get Maggie a Tony too!
Congrats, Maggie! You lick that Playbill!
Isn't it 2014? Can't we do away with things like this??
Houston Astros pitcher Jarred Cosart showed his homophobic colors on Monday when he tweeted the worst gay slur of all! To none other than Justin Bieber!
The Biebs may be getting in lots of legal trouble, but he doesn't deserve to be called such an offensive term! Nor does anybody else!
The 23-year-old MLB player was responding to a tweet from Canadian baseball player Tyson Gillies, who said:
What was the first bomb ever invented? The F-bomb!
The origins of the F word aren't entirely clear, but it's thought to have developed as a curse in the latter half of the 15th century.
But the first known written use of the word may be in a manuscript (above) from 1528!
A grumpy monk (clergy were often the only people who could read and write back then) seems to have scribbled this note in the margin of a book, writing "fuckin Abbot."
Besides being Lou Costello's original, less popular catchphrase, the words are likely not meant to be literal but simply written out of annoyance at the writing's content.
That or he was writing the world's first and worst Cliff Notes! LOLz!
